The studio has remained silent about numerous specifics regarding their upcoming streaming service. Disney is reportedly working on a handful of new MCU TV shows for its streaming service. More on the latest Disney streaming service news below. It's big news, and definitely surprising, as it was assumed that any shows that would be produced on the platform would be something new - and not already established MCU characters. The actors who portrayed these heroes and villains in the Avengers films and their spin-offs, such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, are expected to play them in the streaming shows.

It's previously announced its developing a Star Wars series overseen by Jungle Book director Jon Favreau, a show based on High School Musical and a live-action Lady and the Tramp movie.

That's not to say these prospective shows are going to be cheap.

And Bigg Boss is a place to test their relationship and decide if they can continue forever and be with each other. On Tuesday, Jasleen's father came forward and spoke about her daughter's relationship with Anup Jalota.

Storylines for each series are still being teased out, but Disney appears to be holding back some significant fire power for the big screen. All of these items put together will surely inspire viewers to sign up for Disney's service. That's a huge coup and raises the price of each of these potential limited series quite a bit, so Marvel likely wouldn't confirm anything until it had locked contracts from the potential stars anyway. And what of Netflix's Marvel shows? In other words, any fans hoping for any crossover between these Disney Play shows and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or any of the Netflix properties probably shouldn't hold their breath. Streaming is the future, and Disney is exhausted of letting Netflix get all the glory. Most notably, Loki and Scarlet Witch were listed as two of the shows in development. Anyone who has wanted to see more of these characters will finally get their wish. "Then they [Vision and her family] have to tell her that she was make-believing the entire time, and she has a very traumatic experience and screams, and kills all the mutants - but that's an X-Men story, so we'd have to adjust the ending".

Disney Play is expected to launch sometime in 2019.
