Scarlet Witch, Loki and other Marvel Cinematic Universe characters will be getting their own series on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, according to Variety. But not just anyone would play them. The original actors from the Marvel Studios movies would reprise their roles in the limited series, which is certainly exciting news.
The trade says that two of the series will likely center on Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Elizabeth Olsen’ Scarlet Witch, along with other superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.
Each series is expected to include six to eight episodes. Marvel Studios will produce the shows and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige would be involved in the development.
Variety adds that the Marvel Studios series are in early development and writers have not been attached yet. They will also stay separate from Marvel Television shows like Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix Marvel series like Daredevil.
The Disney streaming service, which the company says will cost less than Netflix, is expected to debut in late 2019. Other projects in the works for the service include a Star Wars series from Jon Favreau, the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a High School Musical series, and a live-action/CG hybrid Lady and the Tramp.
