With Disney bringing us a brand new streaming service we’ve also learned that a new Marvel TV show is in the works! It will be joining other new shows such as a ‘Monsters Inc’ series, a ‘High School Musical’ series, and most interestingly, a live-action ‘Star Wars’ series! News came from Disney’s quarterly earnings call where Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger though it was first caught by Wall Street Journal reporter Ben Fritz!
Disney creating new “Star Wars” live action series, one based on “Monsters Inc.,” “High School Musical” TV series and Marvel series for its streaming service launching in 2019, says Iger

In the report, we learned that “while [Disney] currently produces Marvel superhero series such as “Daredevil” for Netflix, new Marvel shows in the future are expected to live on the company’s own streaming service” so that is likely the plan for this new one. As this is a new show it likely isn’t referring to ‘New Warriors‘ who lost its home at Freeform but might just refer to Laurence Fishburne’s mystery Marvel project if that isn’t part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as of this time we have no idea if it involves his role as Bill Foster in ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ or is something entirely different.
Personally, I’d love to see them try to tackle the Kamala Khan version of Ms. Marvel or Moon Knight though I believe the second of those two options wouldn’t be on the table.
What aspect of Marvel has the studios not yet hit which would be a good fit for helping launch Disney’s new streaming service? Do you think we’ll be getting more street level superheroes as seen on Netflix? A team such as ‘The Runaways’ on Hulu? As it wasn’t pointed out what medium this is in it could even be a new animated tale and not something live-action. Share your thoughts as to what you think we might see below True Believers!
