Disney Plus Logo

Disney’s all new streaming platform hasn’t even launched yet and it is still making huge announcements. The service, which was tentatively titled Disney Play but will now go by Disney+, was formally announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger during a live audio webcast of Disney’s fiscal full year and fourth quarter 2018 financial results.

During the event he confirmed a second Star Wars series that will follow Cassian Andor, Diego Luna‘s character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and a Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston. More on the report, below.

Tom Hiddleston As Loki In The Avengers

We’ve always known Star Wars and Marvel would be a big part of Disney’s streaming service, which will be called Disney Play. But it’s not just going to be a bunch of existing movies, there’s going to be original content as well. We know that multiple original Star Wars series are currently being developed, including one with Iron Man director Jon Favreau involved. We also know that these series will not be cheap to produce.

Now we’re starting to see what’s in the works on the Marvel side of things. It’s being reported that Disney is developing multiple Marvel series revolving around various characters such as Loki, Scarlet Witch, and other characters who haven’t received their own standalone movies.

Rumor: ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Trailer Attached To ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Captain America: Civil War Superhero Factions

It’s been a few months since we saw the footage of Captain America: Civil War at the D23 Expo. At the time there was only about a week’s worth of shooting left before the sequel was completed. Much of what we saw looked pretty polished, and could have been condensed and cut for a trailer. But nothing has been released since then. One might suspect that they would attach the first trailer to a tentpole film, which would make sense since September and October aren’t known for blockbuster films.

While there have been rumors that the Civil War trailer would be attached to Spectre, which is in U.K. theaters now but drops in North America next week, there is another one that says it will be attached to none other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Because, you know, both Marvel and Lucasfilm are owned by Disney. More on this story below.

Recent Captain America: Civil War promotional images revealed Iron Man and Captain America’s respective teams. Footage shown at D23 Expo also gave us a look at who is siding with who. However, the teams shown in the footage and the promotional images each tell a very different story.

One key member is missing from Captain America’s squad. Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Wanda aka Scarlet Witch in the film, says that her character doesn’t really side with any one faction, and calls the Avenger a “wild card.” More on this story below.

As with almost every sequel out there, new characters are introduced into the film to keep the franchise fresh and interesting. A few months back, Joss Whedon announced that The Avengers: Age of Ultron would add two new characters, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, a brother and sister team that has yet to be cast.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been rumored to be the new Quicksilver, and has been talking about the character during press junkets for Kick-Ass 2, while Saoirse Ronan was attached to be the Scarlet Witch. But now that she has officially passed on the role, Marvel is quickly turning its attention to Martha Marcy May Marlene star Elizabeth Olsen.

Kick-Ass as Quicksilver in Avengers 2

Marvel Studios is rumored to be courting Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Anna Karenina) for the role of Quicksilver in Joss Whedon‘s tentatively titled The Avengers 2.

Taylor-Johnson, who reprises the title role in Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall, most recently starred in Oliver Stone’s Savages as well as Joe Wright’s adaptation of Anna Karenina.

There’s no confirmation that Taylor-Johnson has landed the role, but we’ll known soon enough as it’s likely the roles of Quicksilver and his sister, Scarlet Witch, will be filled out in time for a big announcement at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

Does Marvel Studios Want Saoirse Ronan To Play Scarlet Witch In ‘The Avengers 2’?

Saoirse Ronan

The Avengers 2 writer-director Joss Whedon revealed a few weeks ago that the classic Marvel characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch – the rights to whom are shared by both Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox with conditions – would figure heavily in the highly anticipated sequel. One of many lingering questions now is: Who will be playing those particular roles?

The script is nearing completion, but no actors have met with Whedon or the producers as yet to discuss joining the cast. Of course now that hardly means that certain actors cannot be at least thought of for these integral roles, and if the rumor going around proves to be accurate, Irish actress Saoirse Ronan is at the top of Marvel’s list to play the Scarlet Witch.
