Which ones? They're keeping things Low-key…



Source: Variety

Variety is reporting that Disney is planning to bring out the (semi) big guns to the smaller screen. Word is that certain Marvel heroes will be getting live-action limited series on the Disney streaming service. Unlike their Distinguished Competition, the characters they are planning to bring to the smaller screen will be played by their cinematic counterparts.

According to the rumor, Elizabeth Olsen will be on a Scarlet Witch limited series and Tom Hiddleston will star in a Loki limited series. Well, hopefully these series will be set before Avengers: Infinity War or… well, you know (hey this is a streamed show, what's with the TV snow?). Other series are also said to be in development, though the main Avengers (eg. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor) are probably not in the cards. It's expected that each series would run 6-8 episodes.

Marvel and Disney had no comment on this rumor, and of course, no release date has been determined for any of these projects.

That's... unexpected.

Could be kinda cool, though.

A Loki series with Hiddleston doing Loki things could be fun; he pretty much stole the MCU.

Always thought the guy who played Green Arrow in Snellville could play a good Fraction-inspired Hawkeye.

If this happens there are so many MCU characters that should be getting limited series:

Bushmaster
Shuri
Elektra
Ulysses Bloodstone
Dr. Doom
Magneto
Dakota North
X-23
Cyclops
Daughters Of The Dragon

After Thor, after Grandmaster, he's obviously the next guy who will take up space in Darryl's place.

So... maybe he survived that fight with Thanos? Or does he come back after the next Avengers movie?

Or... is it a prequel?

Generic powerless fashion industry PI in the Marvel U? I'm pretty confident her worthlessness and redundancy speaks for itself.

What if I told you that they were planning on doing a crossover with DC where she meets Damian and they team up to fight your favorite villain Prometheus? I am sure you would buy that book, right? :band

Without knowing the creative team, Damian is the only thing close to a selling point in that bag of crap. I'd at least read it if I found out he used Dakota as a baseball bat and beat jobber extraordinaire Prometheus/Mr. Supervillain #1 to death with her body.

I hear that your favorite writer Grant Morrison might be writing the book just to let you know. :band
