A few weeks back we learned that Disney's new streaming service, Disney Play, would be home to two new MCU limited series based around characters that might not be able to carry their own movie. The two announced series were said to be based around Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch and Tom Hiddleston's Loki, and now we have a little more information about the first of those series.
According to SlashFilm, the series may focus more on the relationship between Scarlet Witch and Vision, rather than just on Wanda herself...
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.
That makes a ton of sense, apart from the fact that they're both dead in the current, pre-Avengers 4 MCU timeline. And speaking of dead characters, it looks like there's another Marvel team-up series on the horizon. According to Variety, a series centered on Falcon and Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier...
Variety has learned exclusively that Malcolm Spellman has been tapped to write a series featuring the two superheroes, which is currently in development at the streamer. It is the first of the proposed Marvel limited series to find a writer.
Spellman's previous credits have seen him work as a writer and executive producer on Fox's Empire, so I guess just imagine Falcon and Bucky as Lucious and Cookie. Or something.
