Variety published an exclusive story that Marvel Studios is developing a series of shows for the upcoming Disney streaming service centered around some of its MCU characters, including Loki and Scarlet Witch. They further reported that these characters would be played by their movie actors, Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen. There is no mention of a source for this report, nor is there confirmation from Marvel or Disney. If you want to see the article from Variety, here it is:
Obviously, we will have to wait and see if there is any confirmation for this report. But, let’s go ahead and speculate wildly right now. If you got to choose any MCU character, no matter how big or small, who would it be?
For me, it would have to be series centered on the Grandmaster’s Tournament of Champions. I would love to see Beta Ray Bill rise through the gladiator ranks to get his face on the Tower of Champions. Korg and Miek would feature heavily with their sort Pinky and the Brain episodic plans of revolution that constantly fail, bringing loads of comedy and charm to the otherwise brutal gladiator show. As the series draws to a close, we would see the Hulk show up, teasing his rise as Champion.
Another series I would love to see would be the Ten Rings, which featured in the Iron Man movies. With political thrillers like Homeland and Jack Ryan being so popular, I would love to see the Ten Rings as a power struggle over a terrorist network with factions led by different wearers of the rings. One of the leaders, the Mandarin, would seek to unite the factions with the help of Justin Hammer, played by Sam Rockwell. But his quest is bloody and brutal, and starts to draw the attention of the CIA bringing Agent 13 into the fray. The series would lead into a possible fourth Iron Man movie with the emergence of the true Mandarin having gathered the Ten Rings and united the factions.
Let me know what series you would like to see from the MCU Crunchers. Sound off below!
