Loki and other Marvel heroes look set for their own TV shows

Loki Scarlet Witch and More Are Getting Shows on Disney Streaming Service

The first plans for the live-action Marvel TV shows to help launch Disney's streaming service have been revealed, and they're as surprising as they are exciting.

When Disney eventually launches its forthcoming online streaming platform, they'll be entering an extremely saturated market. Moreover, though sources close to the production are staying mum on the cost of the programming, the budgets are expected to be hefty rivaling those of a major studio productions.

The likes of Loki, Scarlet Witch and other superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies are apparently in contention to receive their own limited series of six to eight episodes.

One of the biggest criticisms of the television side of Marvel Studios - which is run under a separate entity entitled Marvel TV - is that while the company touts that they are part of the larger MCU, there have been nearly no connections.

Cleveland signing kicker Greg Joseph
Joseph is 24-years-old and was FAU's all-time field goal leader and tied the program's most extra point record. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Gonzalez has been kicking with a groin injury that requires an MRI.

Though Marvel and Disney have yet to comment on whether the rumors are true, it would make sense for Disney to invest further in bringing the Marvel Universe to life. Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige will oversee the productions, which appear to place the Netflix shows in direct competition. Characters who have already been featured in a standalone movie, such as Iron Man and Captain America, will not be featured in the shows. With Marvel Studios effectively producing its own MCU-linked programming, this presents the question what it means for the future of Marvel Television, particularly its flagship series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

What do you think of this news, are you seeing enough content here to justify a subscription to Disney Play? The reluctant hero and sometimes villain has always been one of the most fun characters to watch because of his constant changes in allegiance and unpredictability and should make for some compelling stories in his own TV show. The same could be said of Olsen's Scarlet Witch who has a tragic past and backstory before finding a home and love within the Avengers setup.

How do you feel about the potential Loki and Scarlet Witch limited series? As always, be sure to let us know down below.
