With its streaming service due in late 2019, Disney is pulling out all the stops with news of a new live-action Loki series. Even more impressive is that the house of mouse intends to use the original actors for its upcoming production.
This could mean that Tom Hiddleston will be back as the god of mischief and he won’t be alone either. Marvel also intends to produce a Scarlet Witch series starring Elizabeth Olsen. Does this mean both characters will come out unscathed in the next Avengers film? Didn’t Loki bite the dust in Infinity War? #justsaying.
Marvel is just one focal point of the new Disney streaming service. There will also be a live-action Star Wars series directed by Jon Favreau and a series adaptation of Monsters Inc. as well. The Disney streaming service is due to be launched in late 2019 as such, expect more news and announcements in the months ahead.
Disney intends to take the fight to Netflix in the streaming market and by all accounts it looks like the house of Mouse may come out on tops based on these inventive programming ideas they’re developing.
