Another important note from the report is that the new shows will focus on "second-tier" MCU characters, not topline ones like Captain America and Iron Man. We'll have to wait and see to find out how Marvel Studios will use Disney's service to expand the MCU-neither Marvel nor Disney are commenting on the story at the moment.
Disney's streaming service will reportedly include limited series starring Loki, Scarlet Witch, and more
Original programing that harks back to beloved franchises or characters has proven to be key to luring subscribers. This possibly puts Netflix's Marvel shows at a disadvantage - all the might of the Marvel/Disney empire could be going towards the Disney Play Marvel shows, leaving the Marvel Netflix titles out in the cold.
And much like Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that saw Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson make the jump from the big screen to the small screen, Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are expected to reprise their roles in these forthcoming streaming shows. Marvel Studios will produce the standalone series with Kevin Feige expected to have a high level of involvement.

According to Variety, the scope and budget of these new shows could be significantly larger than what we've seen before. Nowadays, eight-episode limited series can rival big studio films in terms of creative expression, starpower, and even production value. Having already announced a live action Star Wars series, being developed by Jon Favreau, it is now being reported that the Mouse House is enlisting the Earth's Mightiest Heroes, too. That means big budgets, big production values, and a big bet by Disney on consumer interest in its streaming service. Or let's go all out here, how cool would it be to explore the Hulk in a TV setting since Marvel cannot now make a stand-alone movie for him, again this could be set prior to Avengers in the MCU timeline.
The Marvel series are in early development and writers have yet to be attached to the projects. Wanda, one of the more powerful Avengers, has been diminished to a love interest for Vision who then, at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, shows everyone her powers, and deserves better than she's gotten.
