Disney+ Confirms Vision and Scarlet Witch, What If?, And More Marvel Shows

Marvel’s ‘What If?’ Disney+ Series Will Find Peggy Carter Taking the Super Soldier Serum

We'd already had official word from Disney and Marvel that Tom Hiddleston will be headlining his own Loki series, but yesterday's announcement gave us a logo for the Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan buddy series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (see above) as well as the new title WandaVision for the Scarlet Witch and Vision show featuring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.

Disney announced Thursday that its video streaming service would launch in the U.S. in November, spotlighting its blockbuster-making studios as it takes on powerhouse Netflix.

Disney+ will feature hundreds of titles from not only Disney, but other brands they own such as Pixar, Marvel, Lucas Film, and their newest acquisition 21st Century Fox which includes National Geographic.

Disney CEO Bob Iger and other executives, including Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, unveiled new details about the streaming service during an investor presentation on Thursday.

The service's entire lineup will cover five categories: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

There's plenty to be excited about ahead of the streaming service's November launch and Disney promises that it will rapidly expand globally following its USA debut.

Similar to Netflix you'll be able to enjoy Disney+ movies and shows on connected TV and mobile devices via the Disney+ app.

The announcement comes despite the United States efforts to end two decades of war in Afghanistan. But they were "pushed back and defeated" by security forces, said the government in a statement.

"Disney+ marks a bold step forward in an exciting new era for our company-one in which consumers will have a direct connection to the incredible array of creative content that is The Walt Disney Company's hallmark".

Recent and upcoming Disney theatrical releases will also have an exclusive streaming home on the service, including Captain Marvel, Dumbo, Avengers: Endgame, and The Lion King. It seems likely that the show would remain on Hulu, but only time will tell.

The company projected that it would have from 60 million to 90 million subscribers by that time, with two-thirds of them outside the United States.

But John Meyer, an analyst and Transpire Ventures partner said he strongly believes Disney will not become a threat to Netflix.

The service will cost $6.99 per month, or a once annual fee of $69.99.

It also confirms the service will be available on Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire and Roku streaming sticks alongside what looks to be Android TV and internet browsers as well.

If you've used Netflix you'll be familiar with how Disney+ works. It will also release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials by some of the industry's most prolific and creative storytellers.
