It appears that Marvel's contribution will be in the form of "limited series" adaptations of familiar MCU characters, which is insanely smart. Spinning out of the events of the previous year's The Avengers, the series was co-created by Joss Whedon and starred fan-favorite character Phil Coulson, resurrected from his untimely death at the hands of Loki in the MCU blockbuster. Unlike the Marvel shows over on Netflix, these shows will have Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige heavily involved and they will feature the actors that played the characters in the movies. It is also being reported that Disney intends for the service to cost less than Netflix.
Two of those stars are reportedly Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff (or the Scarlet Witch). Disney fully intends to win this war, and the company may be bringing a few of Marvel's cinematic heroes and villains to the battle. The report states that they will be roughly six to eight episodes in length. According to the report, these new shows would be produced under the Marvel Studios banner as opposed to Marvel TV Studios, which produces "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" and "Jessica Jones", among others.
It's also thought that the limited series will focus on "second-tier" characters and not superheroes that already have their own standalone films. That shows just how committed Disney is to getting this streaming service beefed up with big content in order to attract subscribers.

What do you think of this news, are you seeing enough content here to justify a subscription to Disney Play?
One of the biggest criticisms of the television side of Marvel Studios - which is run under a separate entity entitled Marvel TV - is that while the company touts that they are part of the larger MCU, there have been nearly no connections.
Good news for anyone anxious that Infinity War - spoiler alert for the three people and Clarence the movie-shy badger who hasn't seen the movie yet - might mean the true end of Loki, or who thought Scarlet Witch didn't have enough to do.
