    Default Disney Streaming Limited Marvel Shows

    https://variety-com.cdn.ampproject.o...-1202947551%2F it seems Disney is looking to do limited series with MCU film characters like Loki and Scarlet Witch using film actors.

    Very very interesting. Negates Loki's death whether it is a prequel or not, but I am not in the least bit surprised.

    Weird, but it's a good gamble to both shore up their service while promoting the second tier characters who just happen to be played by box office draws.

    Me, I'm hoping Korg gets a series (I know chances are slim, but I will help print more pamphlets).

    Just don't let it be slow like the Netflix stuff.

    If they're using the movie actors with big budgets, they'll be probably around 5 episodes, max.

    I would reckon that they would be the length of most mini series which tend to be between six and eight episodes long. I am curious about where and when these shows will be set, if any other characters could guest star like some Asgardians or Vision or Quicksilver, and whether this will open the doors for other characters to get shows. Sif, Suri, Valkyrie and Korg, more Agent Carter, Hank Pym and Janet... the possibilities this opens up are exciting! I wonder what Loki or Scarlet Witch storyline they could adapt? The latter could benefit from a fellow female magic villain like Enchantress or Morgan ale Fay, or they could use the show to start inserting X-Men elements if they plan to revive her mutant connections...

    They've gotten better, though they had to learn their lesson the hard way.

    I'm currently watching Luke Cage, Season 2, and while it's not the best, I feel like the first two episodes were the clunkers and everything after flowed pretty smoothly. Less filler this time, and actually sticking to their villains has been a good help.

    You know, given Wanda's history with him in the comics, a SW series might be the perfect opportunity to introduce Wonder Man into the MCU. Even have Nathan Fillion reprise him (he was deleted from the films).

    Also Agatha Harkness as well....and possibly Quicksilver in flashbacks or Paul bettany as Vision.
