Disney Reportedly Launching Standalone Streaming Shows For Marvel's Loki and Scarlet Witch

While a tentative release window has been set - sometime in 2019 - information and details regarding Disney's direct-to-consumer streaming service couldn't be seeping through any slower. Adding on to that, Kevin Feige will apparently be involved in a hands-on role and, of course, there's two big names front and centre in Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen.

However, it's believed that these shows may be more closely tied in with the MCU, and may even star the actors who originated the roles: Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch. Variety's report also suggests that the Loki and Scarlet Witch limited series would have larger budgets than traditional shows.

In a bombshell move, Disney will expand upon some of its most popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe with its forthcoming streaming service Disney Play.

Another important note from the report is that the new shows will focus on "second-tier" MCU characters, not topline ones like Captain America and Iron Man.

We should caution that at this point, there has been no official announcement or confirmation from Disney about the plans, and the Mouse House is unlikely to say anything until all elements are in place.

This is big news, and only bolsters Disney Play's power. 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.

This news also comes as interest in Marvel TV's Netflix shows has waned considerably.

How do you feel about the potential Loki and Scarlet Witch limited series?

Good news for anyone anxious that Infinity War - spoiler alert for the three people and Clarence the movie-shy badger who hasn't seen the movie yet - might mean the true end of Loki, or who thought Scarlet Witch didn't have enough to do. Who would you want to see get their own series? And hey, who knows - maybe they'll give Hawkeye his own series next. The service is expected to launch next fall.
