Loki, Scarlet Witch, Other Marvel Heroes to Get Own TV Series on Disney Streaming Service (EXCLUSIVE)

Disney's planned streaming subscription service will have plenty of muscle behind it, if a new report from Variety turns out to be accurate.

And if you're anxious about quality suffering like we've seen with so many of Marvel's other small screen efforts, don't, because Kevin Feige's said to be taking a hands-on role in each project, with Marvel Studios producing them for Disney. The potential to bring more Avengers characters to television may also prove to be a big selling point for Disney's streaming service.

Details on plots and creative teams are still murky, but Variety's report notes that the plan is to focus on second-tier MCU characters for these six-to-eight episode shows, and to bring in the original talent who played them on the big screen.

Marvel and Disney have confirmed exactly none of this, but plans will begin to leak out more and more as Disney's late 2019 launch date approaches.

This is big news, and only bolsters Disney Play's power.

Marvel first announced the development of live-action series for its direct to consumer service back along with the announcement of its live-action Star Wars series, which Jon Favreau is producing.

This news also comes as interest in Marvel TV's Netflix shows has waned considerably.

Marvel already has a number of standalone TV shows featuring their so-called "street level" superheroes on Netflix, such as Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Daredevil, and the ABC series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Streaming is the future, and Disney is exhausted of letting Netflix get all the glory.

Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Tom Hiddleston, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt. Will Loki and Scarlet Witch shows carry enough weight to hook viewers? Anyone who has wanted to see more of these characters will finally get their wish.
