"There's quite a few other comic books that we're pulling from and it's going to be Wanda and the Vision, and I think at the Disney+ launch chat, they showed a photo of us in the '50s," Olsen told Variety on the sidelines of Avengers: Endgame premiere.

"Paul and I are really excited. They have a great group of writers. I think it's going to be a total of six hours," she added.

The series is being developed by Jac Schaeffer, the screenwriter of Captain Marvel. He is writing, producing, and showrunning the show. Olsen also told the outlet that the shooting would commence later this year.

Disney+ will launch on 12 November. The platform will also include many Marvel and Star Wars TV shows including The Mandalorian and a standlone series focused on Loki.
