Disney announced in the past that they are developing their own streaming platform, which will compete with Netflix.

The said Disney streaming platform is set to be launched in late 2019.

Although there is still no information about the content that will be made available on the Disney streaming platform, rumor has it that Loki and Scarlet Witch will be getting their own TV series.

Variety reported that Disney is planning to use popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in their own content.

According to the report, there will be separate shows that will focus on Loki and Scarlet Witch. Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are likely to reprise their roles. Therefore, it can be expected that the upcoming TV series will have both original actors from the movies.

The report further detailed that these shows planned for Disney’s own streaming platform will be different from the existing Marvel TV series like ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Netflix’s Daredevil. This is because Marvel shows on the Disney streaming service will be produced by Marvel Studios, not Marvel TV, with Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, taking a hands-on role in their development.

Reports say that the upcoming shows will only have six to eight episodes.

Marvel and Disney have not yet confirmed this information.
