Disney Streaming Service to Feature Loki and Scarlet Witch TV Shows

Disney Streaming Service to Feature Loki and Scarlet Witch TV Shows

Disney's upcoming streaming service is poised to be a rival of sorts to Netflix.

Two of those stars are reportedly Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff (or the Scarlet Witch). As though that weren't enough, the report claims the streaming service will serve as a home to series for other MCU characters that have yet to appear in their own solo films.

Given that the House of M is such a X-Men-centric story, it's quite possible this could be how Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige introduce the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that Disney's deal with Fox has been greenlit.

According to Variety, the shows will also see original actors Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen return to their roles for the shows - which are speculated to have huge budgets rivalling their blockbuster counterparts.




Disney wants to beat Netflix at the streaming game, and they know just how to do it: by bringing MCU characters to TV. The company has announced a number of high-profile projects, including a Star Wars series overseen by "Jungle Book" director Jon Favreau, a show based on "High School Musical", and a live-action "Lady and the Tramp" film.

Marvel previously streamed shows on Netflix - Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, etc - and also produced series for networks such as ABC (Agent Carter) and Freeform (Cloak & Dagger). That shows just how committed Disney is to getting this streaming service beefed up with big content in order to attract subscribers. Wanda, one of the more powerful Avengers, has been diminished to a love interest for Vision who then, at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, shows everyone her powers, and deserves better than she's gotten. What Marvel fan wouldn't watch a show featuring Korg and Miek?

This is a completely unexpected piece of news-with all of the projects that Marvel Studios is juggling, it's a wonder that they would have both the time and the budget to facilitate these extra projects.

Marvel and Disney have confirmed exactly none of this, but plans will begin to leak out more and more as Disney's late 2019 launch date approaches.
