Ever since the announcement that Marvel and Disney will be developing TV shows for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service, revolving around characters established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, people have been wondering what they are going to be about. We already know that some of the planned stories will revolve around Scarlet Witch, Vision, Loki, Bucky, Falcon, Hawkeye, and most recently it seems like Lady Sif will also be getting a spin-off show. The budget for each series has been reported to be $100 million dollars. The stories themselves have been kept under wraps, every now and then something seems to either get leaked out or information get spilled. And it seems like the biggest leak may have just happened, as it seems we may know the the stories that will be told, as well as villains joining them. Nothing has been confirmed through Disney or Marvel, so take everything with a grain of salt.
Vision and Scarlet Witch
Out of all the shows being created, this show seems to be the one most talked about. While all the shows haven’t received their titles, it was at one point reported that the name of the show was going to be The Vision and Scarlet Witch. It is described as a “suburban psychological thriller” and supposedly will follow the two characters as they have decided to settle down in the suburbs. Scarlet Witch apparently tries to give Vision a “soul” and in the process it goes horribly wrong. If this is true, it would be safe to assume this would take place after Avengers: Endgame. The rumored villain for the show is Agatha Harkness. She is described in the comics as one of the original witches from the Salem Witch trials. The show will reportedly draw heavily from the events in the Tom King comic series Vision.
To the joy and surprise of many, Marvel shocked a lot of people by announcing that our favorite trickster Loki was going to be receiving his own show. Many were thrilled to know that they would be getting more Loki, especially after he met his demise at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Unfortunately while many were excited at the thought of more Tom Hiddleston, recent reports seem to suggest that Tom Hiddleston will not be the star of the show but only a narrator. The show will revolve around a young Loki and possibly a young Thor. Odin may also may have a voiceover as well. As for the villains, it seems minor comic book characters will be used as Karnilla, a sorceress and Queen of Nornheim, as well as Ulik a Rock Troll who is also from Nornheim.
Bucky and Falcon
Not much is known about this series other than the fact that it will revolve around Bucky aka The Winter Soldier and Sam Wilson aka Falcon. The two became fan favorites especially from their interactions during Captain America: Civil War, where the two became frenemies. From what we have heard, the show will be a spy thriller that may tie into Avengers: Endgame. Reportedly the two will be recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. to take on a new villainous group as well as the villainous US Agent. It is said Nick Fury will appear as well as possibly the return of Agent 13 aka Sharon Carter.
We have known since October of last year that Disney planned on brining us a Hawkeye story to the Disney+ streaming service. One rumor that has been following Hawkeye, is the story of Kate Bishop. The rumor is that Clint Barton will soon be passing on the mantle of Hawkeye and Kate Bishop will be the one to take his place. In the comics, Kate Bishop is a member of the Young Avengers. As for villains, it seems like we could be getting some new crime organization as well as the villains The Hood and Trick Shot.
After the events of Thor: Ragnarok, a lot of people were left wondering what happened to Lady Sif. While we never really got a definitive answer to where she went, the answer might be finally solved. Within the last week, we have learned that there is a high possibility that Lady Sif will be getting her own spin off show. It is rumored the show will revolve around Lady Sif’s banishment from Asgard due to certain events before Thor: Ragnarok. The villain is rumored to be fan favorite Enchantress. The most intriguing part is that apparently along the way she may run into a familiar name….Beta Ray Bill! This would be an interesting but pretty cool way to introduce the character!
Potential Other: War Machine
Other rumored characters that may potentially be getting a show is War Machine aka James “Rhodey” Rhodes. The best friend of Tony Stark hasn’t really been used as much but his popularity is still high. The rumor is that his story would revolve around him trying to secure stolen technology from Stark Industries.
There is a lot of information, but if it all turns out to be true, we could be looking at some pretty cool series coming our way. While no matter what, Disney and Marvel is sure to not disappoint. But tell us what you think! Are you excited for these shows? Do you think any of this is true? Do you like or hate any of it? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
