It’s Official - Disney Is Making A Marvel TV Series
If you can’t get enough superhero action, you’re in luck - Disney is working on creating a Marvel TV Series
If you haven’t heard, Disney is spending 2019 to focus on launching its own streaming service to compete with top dogs like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. In order to be successful, Disney will likely be streaming some of everyone’s favorite Disney classics along with things like Star Wars and Marvel movies (which Disney owns).
Disney will also be creating it’s own series - and the first one on its list is a Marvel TV series which will feature popular characters from the Marvel blockbuster films. Fans can expect to see storylines centered around Loki and Scarlet Witch, and a few others who have yet to receive a full movie with their character at the center. The characters will be played by the same actors that played the role in the big screen films, which is different from other smaller screen adaptations of the Marvel movies which use alternative casting (due to their smaller budgets). Because this is Disney we’re talking about, the budgets are expected to be close to their blockbuster counterparts and each series is expected to consist of 6-8 episodes.
While the series is still very much in the early stages, it already seems like both a very ambitious and delightfully exciting idea. The series would definitely attract both the Disney crowd and the comic book crowd and will help to make the Disney streaming a serious competitor to Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.
Aside from the Marvel series, Disney is also reportedly working on a slew of original productions like new episodes for Star Wars: The Clone Wars and series based on movies like Monsters, Inc. and High School Musical.
