Disney Streaming Service Adds New Marvel Heroes Live Action Shows


The Disney Streaming Service which really needs a more catchy name is set to bring MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) characters like Loki and Scarlet Witch to the small screen.

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.

This signals a big change by the powers that be at Marvel which before this had faced some criticism from fans for the TV shows suffering because of the film plans. The plans are part of Disney’s plans to take the fight to Netflix and with Marvel and Star Wars TV series.

These new Marvel shows will feature the same actors who appear in the Marvel films. The service is looking to launch in late 2019.
