Disney's New Streaming Service Developing Two Marvel Character Spinoff Series
Marvel is developing a pair of television programs based on characters Loki and Scarlet Witch for Disney's upcoming streaming service.
The shows would feature the Marvel cinematic universe versions of Loki, portrayed by Tom Hiddleston, and Scarlet Witch, portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen, with each character getting their own limited series, Entertainment Weekly reported citing sources.
Each series, which could expand into more about other Marvel cinematic characters, is expected to range from six to eight episodes. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige will be involved in the development, Variety reported.
Disney is set to launch its streaming service in 2019. The company has yet to announce pricing for the service, which will feature a live-action Star Wars series written and executive produced by Jon Favreau and a live-action remake of animated classic Lady and the Tramp.
