Loki, Scarlet Witch to get own series
Los Angeles: Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved Marvel superheroes who are yet to appear in their own standalone movies, will reportedly feature in a series that will go live on Disney streaming service.
Disney is enlisting the superheroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. The entertainment company is in early development of an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), reports variety.com.
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. Each series is expected to include six to eight episodes.
