Three Marvel comics that would be ideal for Disney’s new streaming service

Disney's streaming service is expected to launch in late 2019.

When Disney eventually launches its forthcoming online streaming platform, they'll be entering an extremely saturated market.

While both Disney and Marvel have made no official statement, Variety reports that the budgets for these shows - expected to have six to eight episodes - will rival big blockbuster movies. Though, if the effects of the snaps are undone in the fourth film, we could still see the Scarlet Witch's story continued in the TV series. 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. And better yet, they will be played by the same actors from the film franchise, further bridging the gap between Marvel movies and TV. They will be produced by Marvel Studios, and studio boss Kevin Feige is reportedly going to have a "hands-on" role in them. 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. The films will focus more on the characters who have not received their own films, with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the rest not featured.

The hope I have is that, with a show all her own, Wanda can finally shine as the character she is meant to be-and also, more Elizabeth Olsen content would be delightful.

The report does not go not to reveal how these shows will integrate with the broader MCU, but considering both met their demise during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, they could both serve as a prequel story to the characters.

There's an important distinction from other Marvel small screen efforts, however.

What do you think of this news, are you seeing enough content here to justify a subscription to Disney Play? The as-yet unnamed service will be the online home of Disney movies and TV shows, including a new Star Wars series overseen by director Jon Favreau, a show based on High School Musical, and a live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp.

Fans want to see a show centered around the Winter Soldier, and with so many years where we don't know what happened to him, it would be fun to explore.
