[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”12375″ img_size=”800×450″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The Marvel shows on Netflix were roughly around 13 episodes each season, with the exception of The Defenders being eight and Iron Fist season two being ten. With the shows that will be on Disney+, we should expect shorter episodes, in fact it’s being reported that they will only be around 6 to 8 episodes each.
“Part of Marvel’s next phase includes the segueing of many characters to their own series on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+,” THR reports. “Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) negotiated deals that are separate from the movie contracts for what sources say will be six to eight episodes.”
This does make sense, put all the production into a shorter and sweeter story than stretching it out – although, sometimes this formula could backfire when you are wanting more, but there are no more episodes to the seasons. The characters getting their own shows are Loki, The Falcon, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, and Vision. For the new contracts, the actors will be allowed to appear in both the Disney+ shows and the Marvel Studio movies. The THR report goes on:
“Those contracts don’t negate appearances in future Marvel movies, which could result in a separate round of dealmaking. The next few big-screen adventures build on the plot threads of Endgame. Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) have one more option apiece, which will result in sequels to their solo movies, say sources.”
Disney+ is expected to launch on November 12th.
