Yesterday we ripped open a can of exciting TV tuna pertaining to a possible Falcon & Winter Soldier series that would premiere on Disney’s Streaming Service in 2019. The show, ostensibly a spin-off of the “Avengers” films with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Shaw reprising their roles, will be one of the big highlights of Disney Play.
Slashfilm has news on a further Marvel TV series that’s in the works at the mouse’s streamer : A series focusing on Elizabeth Olsen’s Avenger, Scarlett Witch. And the young Olsen’s co-star? Paul Bettany.
“The other thing I’m hearing is that Paul Bettany‘s Vision will have a large part in the previously reported Scarlet Witch show. In fact, it may actually be a series more about the super-powered couple than just Wanda. This makes sense to me, as Wanda’s relationship with Vision is more compelling than Wanda on her own, and the two have a long and fascinating relationship in the pages of Marvel comics. I don’t think Scarlett Witch has received proper development outside of maybe Civil War, so a series that explores her further via her relationship with Vision makes sense.”
As previously reported, a series about ‘Thor’ villain Loki, played by Tom Hiddelston, is also in the works at Disney Play.
