After announcing a series of upcoming films for the fourth phase of its cinematic universe, Marvel revealed plans on its Disney + shows as well. Disney's upcoming streaming service won't try to compete directly with Netflix and Amazon, but will focus instead on quality — namely original programs from Disney's Star Wars, Pixar and Marvel brands.

The details from Disney CEO Bob Iger were revealed in August last year as Disney reported a growth in earnings for the latest quarter, though results missed expectations.

Here are the upcoming Marvel shows:

Loki

Marvel has shared several images from Disney's investor meeting, that took place in April. One of the pictures unveiled the first look of Loki's standalone series on Disney+. Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as the God of Mischief in the show. Loki is scheduled for a Spring 2021 premiere, as announced at the San Diego Comic Con on Saturday.

Hawkeye

Jeremy Renner will reprise his role in an original series that will also introduce Kate Bishop. The show will premiere on the streaming platform from Fall 2021.

Quibi investors suspect the reason behind the app not taking off could be the coronavirus pandemic, which made its appeal of being able to serve short videos on the go redundant as people were stuck at home.
