One of the first shows coming to the platform is Loki, and the series has just landed its point person.

Opinion

Loki's lifespan gives the show unlimited opportunities

Thanks to Loki's lifespan that makes him age very slowly, almost making him immortal, the show holds great promise.

Considering the plot will show the trickster pop up in different time periods, it will give Waldron the creative freedom to tell his own stories without worrying about continuation in MCU since the films have barely explored earth's history prior to World War II.

Other shows

Disney+ has other Marvel shows lined up

Apart from Loki, Disney+ has a host of other Marvel shows lined up, as we reported.

These include a show titled The Vision and Scarlet Witch while another will focus on the sidekicks of Captain America, Falcon, and Sebastian Stan, or the Winter Soldier.

Notably, Malcolm Spellman, best known for his work in Empire, has already been hired to work on the latter project.
