Loki, Scarlet Witch could get limited series on Disney streaming platform

Loki Scarlet Witch and More Are Getting Shows on Disney Streaming Service

Plans are reportedly underway for Tom Hiddleston's Loki and Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch to anchor their own TV shows on Disney's subscription streaming platform (which is rumored to be called Disney Play). Like with the first season of Agent Carter, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is expected to take a hands-on role in the development of each series, with the budgets expected to be "hefty", not unlike a studio production.

These will represent a big shift from Marvel's other MCU efforts, which have generally not featured stars from the films.

However with Disney creating their own streaming network which will see them bring all their new series under one banner, it will make it a lot easier to pull all the narrative strings and create some nice tie-in series that could perhaps get fans even more excited about the ever-expanding universe.

Russians Accused of Poisoning Former Spy Allow Interview
The official story made public by the British authorities suggests the two men entered the country 48 hours before the poisoning. They said they may have passed by Skripal's house but they did not know him.

It'll be interesting to see how the various limited series shape up: Loki is dead after Infinity War, and expected to stay that way, which would mean his series would have to be a prequel.

Disney wants to beat Netflix at the streaming game, and they know just how to do it: by bringing MCU characters to TV.

Disney's new streaming video service needs some heroes, but it's turning to some former Marvel villains who have been drawn to the light. Give me a World of Wakanda show while you're at it, please. This could allow for quite a few different types of stories to be told that there simply might never be room for on the big screen.

Trump disputes hurricane death toll in Puerto Rico
Navarro said Thursday that that was because the president's tweets were politically damaging for those associated with him. The Trump tweet generated strong emotions of anger and sorrow.

Marvel previously streamed shows on Netflix - Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, etc - and also produced series for networks such as ABC (Agent Carter) and Freeform (Cloak & Dagger).

While the report didn't reveal any details on possible story lines, Elizabeth Olsen has previously talked about adopting the House of M storyline.

Expect more "second tier" characters from the Avengers movies to get the spotlight.

US Open 2018: Novak Djokovic wraps up third US Open title
But when Djokovic faced three break points in the following game, an epic that required 22 points to settle, he saved them all. Open women's doubles final, beating Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic 3-6, 7-6, 7-6 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Little is known about Disney's potential rival to Netflix and Amazon, other than it'll cost less than the former and is set to arrive in late 2019.
