Disney is enlisting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. The entertainment giant is in early development on an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These series will likely include shows centered on Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.

There’s an important distinction from other Marvel small screen efforts, however. The actors who portrayed these heroes and villains in the Avengers films and their spin-offs, such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, are expected to play them in the streaming shows. Moreover, though sources close to the production are staying mum on the cost of the programming, the budgets are expected to be hefty rivaling those of a major studio productions.

The Marvel series are in early development and writers have yet to be attached to the projects. Marvel TV Studios and Disney have been active with shows that include ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and Netflix’s “Daredevil,” but sources say those shows will stay under Marvel TV banner with these limited series set under Marvel Studios.

Storylines for each series are still being teased out, but Disney appears to be holding back some significant fire power for the big screen. Insiders stress the Avengers that have gotten their own movies like Iron Man and Captain America will not be featured in the series with the studios focusing on characters who have served as second tier characters in the MCU.

I don't love Loki the way that most other people do but I would love to see more of Asgard since I haven't been fond of how it was depicted in the Thor films. If they took a more classical mythological take on it, I'd be quite impressed, although I doubt Marvel would go that route.

If Hiddleston is still involved, I'll definitely see it at some point--whenever that may be considering it'll be on their streaming service which I won't have....

I want the series to be a sequel so they'll be forced to resurrect Loki. I'm not interested in an inconsequential midquel of any kind.

I'm not happy about this. :glare:

Q: Will Tom Hiddleston be narrating the Loki TV series or physically acting in it?

The DisInsider: I heard he's narrating and it's centered on a younger Loki.

While I was unable to confirm it with a second source, I was told that Marvel Studios might be taking an interesting approach to their Loki series. It’s been reported that Tom Hiddleston will return to reprise the role of Loki, but it seems that the series may find him narrating the events of his own life, presumably from the afterlife (Valhalla) following his death at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. This opens up all sorts of storytelling possibilities and is consistent with the original reporting on the show which indicated it could take place at any time during Loki’s considerably long life. Fans of the comics will know that Loki has died and come back to life many times in many different forms, among them Kid Loki who interacted with the Young Avengers.

That is disappointing. The biggest draw of this series was that the original actors were coming back but I don't think anyone wanted them in a miniscule narrator role. This would work better if older Loki not only provides commentary but is able to appear on screen and visually project himself into his flashbacks or memories or something.

lame! Tom made that role what it is!

Please don't tell me Sebastian Stan will narrate the Bucky/Falcon series too. :roll:

I'm not that opposed yet, since I like what I've read of the recent young Loki stories in the comics.

That said, I do wonder if Anthony Hopkins and Rene Russo will appear in the series as Odin and Frigga.

This was posted anonymously on 4chan so take it with a grain of salt.

Loki meets the Norns after his death in Avengers: Infinity War and must persuade them to spare his soul from Hel. Tom Hiddleston will appear in bookend scenes and narrate throughout, but the blunt of the story is about Loki’s youth and the events that led him down the path of evil, with a new actor playing young Loki. One name that has been frequently brought up is Fionn Whitehead from Dunkirk and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. We will also see young Thor, and Rene Russo will have a big role as their mother Frigga. Odin will be away on a mission for most of the story, and the few times he appears, his face will be obscured, with Anthony Hopkins ADR-ing the dialogue. The sorceress Karnilla and the barbarian Ulik will be the main antagonists.

Marvel’s god of mischief has a showrunner. Loki, one of the first series that Marvel Studios will be making for Disney’s streaming service Disney+, has landed Michael Waldon as its point person. Waldron will write the pilot, act as show creator and exec produce the series.

Tom Hiddleston is expected to star in the series, reprising the fan favorite character he first played in 2011’s Thor. The character apparently met his demise in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, even before the census altering dematerialization of half the universe, but Marvel may have found a run around that little impediment. Sources say the show will follow Loki as the trickster and shapeshifter pops up throughout human history as unlikely influencer on historical events.

Peter Sciretta spoke to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about his plans for the Disney+ Marvel shows, which he confirms will be developed as part of the “post-[Avengers: Endgame] MCU.”

“It will be MCU proper. Sometimes it will take place as Captain Marvel did in a time before current events, sometimes it will take place during. What I will say, whatever happens in those, in those shows and with characters that have been in the films, they’ll undergo transformations, not Loki necessarily, but will undergo transformations in their series and those transformations will be reflected in their next film appearances. Because we’ve been developing long-form narrative stories for Disney Plus at the exact same time that we’ve been developing a post-[Avengers: Endgame] MCU, we’ve been able to do something we’ve never done before, which is interweave them from the start, from the plant. So it’s pretty exciting to be 10+ years into the MCU and have an entirely new outlet to tell stories with new characters, with existing characters. And the way we like to do nineties action movies, political thrillers, heist movies, you hear us talk about this all the time, and now we get to do play with a medium even more in a multi-episode arc, which we’re excited about.

A tie-in novel will be released on September 03, 2019.

Quote:
An epic tale across the realms. A deadly power that spans millennia. A story of struggle and betrayal, this adventure is told through the patchwork past of Marvel's most misunderstood mischief-maker of all time: Loki: Trickster. God of Asgard. Brother.

This is the first of three young adult novels from New York Times best-selling author Mackenzi Lee that explores the untapped potential of popular characters in the Marvel Universe. The novels focus on exploring the duality of heroism in specific character stories from the Marvel Universe.
