Marvel Reportedly Working On Something Very Big For Disney Streaming Service
While Marvel Studios has been tearing it up on the big screen for more than a decade, television efforts from another division of the Disney arm have not been…as great. First came Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, then came the Netflix series and now, content for Disney’s upcoming streaming service.
We know about shows starring Loki and Scarlet Witch, while reports of a Nick Fury series have surfaced as well. This week, though, a new rumor from Slash Film’s Peter Sciretta claimed that something bigger and better is actually being worked on. Here’s what he said in a pair of tweets:
“Yes, Disney is working on other Marvel Cinematic Universe shows for their streaming service. But No, from what I’ve heard it’s not a Nick Fury series as reported recently on those unreliable Marvel fan sites. It’s something bigger and better. Something more. Oh and to be clear, we haven’t reported what we’ve heard (even though it’s from a good source) because we’ve yet to find a reliable second source for the information and Disney isn’t commenting.”
The big question here (aside from if anything on the streaming service will be as walled off as the ABC and Netflix shows are) is what exactly could something more be? Fans have speculated the Fantastic Four might receive the starring treatment after multiple failed theatrical ventures, but I don’t know about that.
Based on what’s been rumored, I see this project being something with already introduced Marvel Cinematic Universe characters. Perhaps it’s an anthology-like “What if?” series. That would certainly be something big and would leave the stars with the chance to do creative things while still being available for other work. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see, though.
