Disney+ Confirms Vision and Scarlet Witch, What If?, And More Marvel Shows

Disney+ Confirms Vision and Scarlet Witch, What If?, And More Marvel Shows

Disney plans to make the streaming service available in all major regions of the world within two years. Netflix and Amazon allow you to download some content for offline viewing, but Disney+ is going to let you download any and all content from the service so you can watch on road trips, airplanes, or tragic times when the wi-fi goes down.

We'd already had official word from Disney and Marvel that Tom Hiddleston will be headlining his own Loki series, but yesterday's announcement gave us a logo for the Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan buddy series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (see above) as well as the new title WandaVision for the Scarlet Witch and Vision show featuring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. Hulu offered a full year of Hulu's on-demand limited-commercial plan for $0.99 last Black Friday, and they still have to pay content owners for the subscribers they have even if that subscriber is not paying full price.

"This is our first serious foray in this space, and we want to reach as many people as possible with it", chairman and CEO Bob Iger explained at Disney's 2019 Investor Day, where the news was announced.

The new entrants, with more expected, could launch a formidable challenge to Netflix, which has about 140 million paid subscribers in 190 markets, and to other services such as Amazon Prime. Note: Feige did not mention the reported Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner. Other titles including Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther and Ant Man and the Wasp will be available within year one of the launch.

Endgame will serve as both a follow up to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the conclusion to the 22 films that came before it which has now been dubbed as the Infinity Saga by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige before the studio kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.

"For instance, our first episode will ask the questions: what if Peggy Carter was the one who became a super soldier and what if Steve Rogers stayed a scrawny, young kid but joined the fight with an armoured suit built by Howard Stark?" However, that show is apparently going to be called WandaVision. However, Star Wars boss Kathleen Kennedy confirmed during the presentation that Alan Tudyk will also reprise his role as reprogrammed Imperial security droid K-2SO.

Disney+ will debut in the US on November 12 at a price that seems like a direct shot at Netflix. It will be available when the service launches.
