Disney is planning to develop several limited series for their upcoming streaming service based on popular MCU characters, and obviously the big news here is that we’re talking movie characters and actors being involved. The two names thrown around so far are Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen.
For anyone who’s followed the behind the scenes drama of Disney’s past Marvel TV efforts, this detail is probably even more important than the actors:
Marvel Studios will produce the shows and Kevin Feige, the guru of all things MCU, is expected to take a hands-on role in their development.
That’s our best hope for TV shows that in any way integrate with the films.
So I guess I’m subscribing to the Disney service…
