Disney and Marvel apparently aren't quite done with Loki just yet

Loki Scarlet Witch

The reluctant hero and sometimes villain has always been one of the most fun characters to watch because of his constant changes in allegiance and unpredictability and should make for some compelling stories in his own TV show. The possibilities are really endless here, imagine a show based on Bucky aka The Winter Soldier set in the 80's.

Furthermore, Marvel Studios' boss Kevin Feige is expected to have a hands-on role in the development of these shows.

That would brings significant Marvel firepower to the Disney service, which will also feature a Star Wars series run by Iron Man and The Jungle Book filmmaker Jon Favreau.

The shows are being billed as limited series (six to eight episodes each) and they'll center on some Marvel fan favorites that we've already been introduced to as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We should caution that at this point, there has been no official announcement or confirmation from Disney about the plans, and the Mouse House is unlikely to say anything until all elements are in place. A large part of that has been because the series are all run by different networks like ABC, Netflix and Hulu and it would be nearly impossible to connect all those threads together across different creative people.

George R. R. Martin Says Game of Thrones Could've Lasted 13 Seasons

Should Ravens go after Browns WR Josh Gordon?
He caught a game-tying, 17-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter but was mostly used as a decoy. Gordon posted an Instagram story later Saturday in which he thanked the Browns and their fans.

Expect more "second tier" characters from the Avengers movies to get the spotlight. Better yet, what about a Thanos centric series, starring Brolin and possibly Karen Gillan and the other children of Thanos?

It'll be interesting to see how the various limited series shape up: Loki is dead after Infinity War, and expected to stay that way, which would mean his series would have to be a prequel. That shows just how committed Disney is to getting this streaming service beefed up with big content in order to attract subscribers. Add in the fact that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is about to air its final season and Inhumans was D.O.A., and the writing seems to be on the wall.

What do you think?

These will represent a big shift from Marvel's other MCU efforts, which have generally not featured stars from the films.
