One of the selling points of the upcoming Disney Plus subscription is that it is expected to play home to quite a few original live-action TV shows based on various Marvel characters. However, if you have been skeptical about their success, especially based on previous and current series, you might not have anything to worry about.
This is because according to a report from Variety, they have heard from their sources that Marvel will not be cheaping out on their TV shows. Instead, the company is expected to invest movie-style budgets into their shows, where each series could have a budget of anywhere between $100-$150 million.
Usually TV shows have smaller budgets because they need to run for multiple episodes and seasons, meaning that spending too much per episode isn’t economical. However, Marvel seems to be wanting to maintain the same visual standard that fans have come to know and love of their movies, hence the larger budgets.
According to one TV lit agent who spoke to Variety, “Feige’s shows are so far beyond anything Marvel TV has been able to do. He has access to all of these MCU characters that the other Marvel live-action stuff just doesn’t, not to mention way bigger budgets.” Disney+ is expected to launch in November and we can look forward to seeing Marvel series in the months and years to follow.
