Disney Bringing Tom Hiddleston & Elizabeth Olsen’s ‘Avengers’ Characters To TV?!

Disney Bringing Tom Hiddleston & Elizabeth Olsen’s ‘Avengers’ Characters To TV?!

Disney's streaming service (which The Playlist says is expected to cost less than a monthly subscription to Netflix) will allegedly launch sometime in 2019, but nothing's confirmed on that front as of yet.

When Disney eventually launches its forthcoming online streaming platform, they'll be entering an extremely saturated market.

When all is said and done, the Avengers shows could be the streaming service's most ambitious project both in terms of their scope and budget.

As Variety reports, the popular anti-hero will be starring in a miniseries set to air on the upcoming Disney Streaming Service. There's no word on the budget for each show, but according to Variety, sources close to the production indicate "the budgets are expected to be hefty, rivaling those of a major studio production", since we're guessing that Hiddleston and Olsen wouldn't come cheap. Though, if the effects of the snaps are undone in the fourth film, we could still see the Scarlet Witch's story continued in the TV series. The report also notes that there are plans for other limited series that will feature other Marvel heroes who haven't gotten their own movies. The films will focus more on the characters who have not received their own films, with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the rest not featured. Unlike all of the Marvel television shows (with the exception of Agent Carter), Marvel Studios and their head Kevin Feige would actually be involved in the production of these programs.

'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' takes early lead at Emmy Awards
Maisel ", about a 1950s housewife who turns to standup comedy , took home the Emmy for best comedy series . During the Primetime telecast, Netflix won 7 Emmys, HBO won 6, Amazon won 5, and FX won 5.

There hasn't been any details released on what the shows will be about, whether they will be prequels or sequels (after all, the events of Avengers: Infinity War could put a spanner in the works if we're heading into sequel territory), nor have any writers or directors been attached.

This is big news, and only bolsters Disney Play's power. But with Disney being the overlord of everyone's favorite IP, they stand a better chance than most - especially with the above effort, a live-action Star Wars series, a show based on High School Musical, a massive library of animated content and more.
