Disney's planned streaming subscription service will have plenty of muscle behind it, if a new report from Variety turns out to be accurate. Disney fully intends to win this war, and the company may be bringing a few of Marvel's cinematic heroes and villains to the battle.

It's about to get a bit harder for fans of Marvel's Loki and Scarlet Witch to resist signing up for Disney's upcoming online streaming service! Will Loki and Scarlet Witch shows carry enough weight to hook viewers?

Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Tom Hiddleston, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.

In addition, the new series will also feature other popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe who have yet to be featured in their own standalone films.

Intriguingly, Variety reports that Disney is looking for the movie actors to play the same roles in the TV shows, instead of going for a different cast. It added that each limited series would only have six to eight episodes, with Kevin Feige taking "a hands-on role in their development". It appears that Marvel's contribution will be in the form of "limited series" adaptations of familiar MCU characters, which is insanely smart. Marvel TV Studios and Disney have been active with shows that include ABC's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and Netflix's "Daredevil", but sources say those shows will stay under Marvel TV banner with these limited series set under Marvel Studios. The shows refer to events in the films, while the movies ignore the characters who originated on TV.

Disney's streaming service just got a whopping dose of Marvel firepower. And what of Netflix's Marvel shows?

When all is said and done, the Avengers shows could be the streaming service's most ambitious project both in terms of their scope and budget.
