report, which indicated that Marvel Studios would oversee the new limited series.
Disney's streaming service just got a whopping dose of Marvel firepower.
Neither project has a writer at this time.
The Marvel shows certainly make sense as an audience drive to the platform, but it does raise the question of where this will leave Netflix's Marvel universe and shows like Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. The reluctant hero and sometimes villain has always been one of the most fun characters to watch because of his constant changes in allegiance and unpredictability and should make for some compelling stories in his own TV show.
Very few of the Marvel TV series have featured characters from the films despite the shared MCU landscape. And these aren't going to be scaled down versions of their big screen counterparts, nor will they rely on finding more readily available talent. Will Loki and Scarlet Witch shows carry enough weight to hook viewers? When Disney and Marvel set its mind on something, they normally change the world forever.
Good news for anyone anxious that Infinity War - spoiler alert for the three people and Clarence the movie-shy badger who hasn't seen the movie yet - might mean the true end of Loki, or who thought Scarlet Witch didn't have enough to do.
