No less than six of the Avengers are getting their own spin-off TV shows
All of the original actors will be staying for their roles, too
On Thursday evening, Disney gave a select few people an early look at their new Netflix competitor, Disney+, which is set to be released worldwide before the end of 2019.
On top of their back catalogue of animated movies, Pixar movies, live-action movies, Marvel movies and Star Wars movies, they also gave a glimpse at some of the new shows that can be expected on the new streaming platform.
One of the biggies was the new Star Wars series The Mandalorian, directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book), but all eyes were on the amount of Avengers that are being set up for their own TV shows once Avengers: Endgame has come and gone.
While the details of the potential Hawkeye series (starring Jeremy Renner) "in which Clint Barton will pass the torch to Kate Bishop" (via Variety), who goes on to become the new Hawkeye, are still a little scarce, some of the other shows did get the confirmation stamp.
The time-travelling Loki show (starring Tom Hiddleston) from the writer of Rick & Morty is one we've known about for a while, except now we know the show will just be called Loki, but new details have also emerged on two more shows.
One will feature Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), which will likely further develop their love-on-the-run storyline from Avengers: Infinity War. However, the name of the show, WandaVision, is already getting quite the reaction online.
It’s so dumb. I love it. https://t.co/9atObPf0mD

The other show, under the much better title of The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, will feature, well, Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), which is said to be aiming towards a comedy-spy-duo vibe. Which we're totally on board for, considering how well they worked together in Captain America: Civil War.
