Disney Reportedly Launching Standalone Streaming Shows For Marvel's Loki and Scarlet Witch

Disney has some ambitious plans for their streaming service, including standalone series centered on the MCU's Loki and Scarlet Witch.

The report, for which Marvel and Disney had no comment, says that other popular superheroes who have yet to appear in their own solo movies will also likely get limited series.

Kevin Feige is expected to have a hands-on role in the development of the shows, unlike the Netflix series, and the six-to-eight episode seasons will have movie-level budgets.

U.S. Calls Urgent Security Council Meeting To Discuss North Korea Sanctions
South Korea will station around 20 officials there, while the North will deploy 15-20 officials. The U.S. envoy visited Seoul earlier this week and held talks with his counterpart Lee.

At this time, it isn't known what the stories will be, or where in the MCU timeline they will air.

That would brings significant Marvel firepower to the Disney service, which will also feature a Star Wars series run by Iron Man and The Jungle Book filmmaker Jon Favreau. The most exciting part is that the actors who played those parts in the MCU movies are expected to return for the limited series. Give me a World of Wakanda show while you're at it, please.

Disney's planned streaming subscription service will have plenty of muscle behind it, if a new report from Variety turns out to be accurate. 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.

Tropical Depression Isaac drops rain on Puerto Rico, sparks outages
The storm is projected to shift northeast with an increase in forward speed in the coming days, forecasters said. ET advisory that up to 5 inches of rain could fall in Puerto Rico.

Two that are in early development include a series that would focus on the Asgardian baddie-turned-reluctant hero and another that followed the powerful red-haired Avenger.

Action role: Elizabeth Olsen, 29, first appeared as Scarlet Witch in the end credits scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2014.

The Marvel shows certainly make sense as an audience drive to the platform, but it does raise the question of where this will leave Netflix's Marvel universe and shows like Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 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.

IPhone XR Revealed At Apple Event
For imaging, the iPhone XR uses a single 12 MP standard shooter which has 1.4 um pixels and a f/1.8 aperture 6-element lens. Apple is calling this the Liquid Retina display, and it has bezels slightly thicker than the iPhone Xs and Xs Max .

There's no word when we might see these shows, but Disney Play is expected to launch sometime in 2019.
