Salke said, "The Russo Brothers have impacted the pop culture barometer of creative excellence with their vision for both Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War. They brought a level of scale and execution to those films that has raised the bar for audiences everywhere and we can’t wait for them to do the same for us on this project for our Amazon Prime Customer. We are thrilled to be working with Joe and Anthony Russo and their AGBO Studios as they build this incredible, multifaceted, international franchise."

In addition to this series, the streaming platform will also be airing a mega-budget Lord of The Rings TV series, for which it has already roped in Star Trek and Jungle Series writers JD Payne and Patrick McKay.
