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

Loki Scarlet Witch

Disney has chose to include a smattering of superheroes in its upcoming streaming service. Adding on to that, Kevin Feige will apparently be involved in a hands-on role and, of course, there's two big names front and centre in Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen. The plan is to create shows based around MCU characters who have yet to have their own standalone movies, with Loki and Scarlet Witch coming first.

According to Variety, the scope and budget of these new shows could be significantly larger than what we've seen before. Marvel Studios will produce the standalone series with Kevin Feige expected to have a high level of involvement.

Exact details are now a bit scarce, as Marvel and Disney have yet to make a formal announcement and as the story details are now being fleshed out, but it's being reported that these shows will focus on "second-tier" characters.

That's not to say these prospective shows are going to be cheap. When Disney and Marvel set its mind on something, they normally change the world forever. They're already developing a live action Star Wars series with a reported budget of over $100 million.

However it is a fate the forward is yet to come close to, never having reached the 20 goal mark in a single season at the Bridge. The northwest club had to go through three qualifying rounds in an attempt to reach the group stage but fell short.

Storylines for each series are still being teased out, but Disney appears to be holding back some significant fire power for the big screen. What Marvel fan wouldn't watch a show featuring Korg and Miek? With Feige's attachment to the shows, it means they will fall under the Marvel Studios production banner instead of Marvel TV that houses Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.as well as the various Marvel Netflix shows like Daredevil, Punisher, and Luke Cage. Streaming is the future, and Disney is exhausted of letting Netflix get all the glory.

Good news for anyone anxious that Infinity War - spoiler alert for the three people and Clarence the movie-shy badger who hasn't seen the movie yet - might mean the true end of Loki, or who thought Scarlet Witch didn't have enough to do. Will Loki and Scarlet Witch shows carry enough weight to hook viewers? They want to focus more on second tier characters.

Disney Play is expected to launch sometime in 2019.
