QUOTE(Variety)
Disney is enlisting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. The entertainment giant is in early development on an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These series will likely include shows centered on Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.

Marvel and Disney had no comment.

There’s an important distinction from other Marvel small screen efforts, however. The actors who portrayed these heroes and villains in the Avengers films and their spin-offs, such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, are expected to play them in the streaming shows. 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. Each series is expected to include six to eight episodes. Marvel Studios will produce the shows and Kevin Feige, the guru of all things MCU, is expected to take a hands-on role in their development.


Yes that's MORE MCU series following Agents of SHIELD, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher, Cloak and Dagger, Agent Carter, Runaways and the upcoming New Warriors - phew!! However, these two planned series would be the first to feature two major league characters to star in their own series. Only Agent Coulson and Agent Carter have crossed over to have starring roles with Howard Stark, Nick Fury, Maria Hill and Lady Sif being other characters to have guest/recurring roles.

They're definitely two interesting picks and have got me interested after originally groaning at yet more MCU TV series. Loki has of course been the best villain of the MCU and is one of the most interesting characters so a TV series will really help to explore that further. Scarlet Witch is another intriguing character too, would have been nice for her to get her own film but I think a TV series would actually help to do the character more justice as, again, she's one of the more complex characters.

Are these tv shows though? From that quote it reads to me like a miniseries of Marvel One Shots based on single characters rather than entire shows.

These are TV series, Tom Hiddleston is a question mark to reprise his role he seems to be after bigger roles now, if he gets short listed to replace Daniel Craig as Bond, mind you if the series is only 8 episodes long he might consider it,

Kevin Fiege has said these series will play a ‘big part’ in post-Endgame MCU (of which only Spiderman 2 and Black Widow has been formally announced in terms of movies, with GOTG3 presumably still coming too) which is interesting. I think that means a lot more crossovers especially as they feature some bigger players from the MCU than the other Marvel series.

Loki is the only once that has been officially announced but Scarlet Witch & Vision is very heavily rumoured.

They’re certainly going big on Disney+, the Star Wars series has recently finished filming but I’m not sure when it’s meant to launch?

Latest rumour is that they'll also be a Hawkeye series - potentially with Hawkeye training his daughter (future Young Avengers member Kate Bishop)

Not the the most exciting for me oops

Falcon & Winter Soldier just kinda (depending on its timeline of course) further further confirms that Cap dies in Endgame and that’ll be a TV show of them going “what do we do now without Cap?”

SO, officially OFFICIALLY announced we have:

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: Fall 2020
WandaVision: Spring 2021
Loki: Spring 2021
What If...?: Summer 2021
Hawkeye: Fall 2021

The Falcon and the Winter Solider sees the return of Anthony Mackie & Sebastian Stan in the title roles whilst Zemo (Civil War) and Sharon Carter (Captain America) are also set to return!

WandaVision sees Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch) and Paul Bettany return in the title roles and Monica (Captain Marvel's best friend, Maria's daughter) returns. This is the first TV series with potentially the biggest impact on the MCU Scarlet Witch is set to return in Doctor Strange 2, out shortly after.

Loki sees Tom Hiddleston return and will explore the multiverse as it follows the Loki that stole the Tesseract straight after Avengers 1 in Endgame. Is anyone still with me? Essentially all his character development is back to SQUARE ONE.

Hawkeye sees the return of Jeremy Renner who teaches Kate Bishop to be the new Hawkeye.

What If...? is an animated anthology show exploring alternate realities from events in the MCU. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Killmonger (Michael B Jordan), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), Thanos (Josh Brolin), Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), Korg (Taika Waititi), Dum Dum Dugan (Neal McDonough), Kraglin (Sean Gunn), Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), Arnim Zola (Toby Jones), Korath (Djimon Hounsou) and Yondu (Michael Rooker) ......... all return to to voice episodes.

Also announced are She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Ms Marvel!

Interesting that they’re also exploring new superheros for TV series! The MCU is certainly getting a LOT bigger eek

SO excited.

I hope with the new ones (She-Hulk, Moon Knight & Ms Marvel) we actually get some use out of them in the movies. Not having a quick shot of The Defenders in Endgame battle sequence (when it easily could have been done - nothing big just a quick "Oh shit, YESSSS" moment) broke my heart a lil.
