The good news is Disney expects Hulu losses to stop and the service to be profitable in 2023 or 2024. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was onhand to tease Marvel's offerings on the TV side, which mark new territory as previous Marvel TV projects (like the Netflix shows and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) were handled by Marvel Television's Jeph Loeb. In the first year alone, 25 original series and 10 original films will debut on the service.
As previously announced, Tom Hiddleston will also star in the Loki live-action series. "This gives you the sense of how he plan to explore the MCU and fresh and exciting ways in the series.in addition new and returning cast members will be lending their voice to their animated counterparts".

- Big spending on shows - Disney will invest heavily in the new streaming service, which is not expected to become profitable until 2024, chief financial officer Christine McCarthy told investors.
As announced today during The Walt Disney Company's Investor Day, Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" will be the first new release in the pay-tv window available on the Disney+ service on Day One.
The pricing strategy is part of Disney's strategy to get as many people as possible to sign up for the new service. The Marvel shows on Disney+, however, will be overseen by Feige himself, and will be "major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we'll be producing and the future on the big screen", according to the MCU architect. 2019 Disney Universe films such as "The Lion King", "Avengers: End Game", and "Star Wars: Episode IX" will be streaming exclusively on Disney+ after their theater run.More news: Police fire shots after Ukraine ambassador's auto rammed in London

Disney Plus will roll out in the United States on November 12 at a price of $6.99 per month, well below the $13 monthly fee charged by Netflix, which holds a dominant position in the streaming sector.More news: GM to reveal next-generation Corvette in July
