MARVEL Television will shutter amid the ongoing launch of Disney+ original series which are being overseen by Marvel Studios.
Marvel Television will continue producing TV shows currently in production including The Runaways and upcoming Helstrom, but will no longer develop any new ideas.
Marvel Studios honcho Kevin Feige is now taking the charge with Disney+ live shows such as WandaVision and Falcon And The Winter Soldier.
Many Marvel Television shows have been axed in recent months, including Cloak & Dagger and the Ghost Rider solo series at Hulu, which was reportedly canned due to a “creative impasse” between producers and the streaming service.
The live-action superhero drama was set to pick up the story of Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) in an informal spin of from Marvel’s Agents of Shield, and was due to the air on Hulu; Disney – which owns Marvel Studios – is the leading shareholder at Hulu.
The Runaways will end with its upcoming third season, while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will end after seven seasons on ABC in early 2020.

The only other on-going show in the works is Helstrom, also at Hulu.
Marvel Television also has four animated shows at Hulu – Howard the Duck, Hit Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler and M.O.D.O.K.
All four shows are still expected to air before a crossover event with The Offenders.
Variety reports that Karim Zreik, senior vice president of current programming and production and members of his team will now join the Marvel Studios group, with Zreik leading the current projects in production.

Focus will now shift to Disney+ which has a whole range of other superhero shows to be released after the streaming service’s launch.
This includes shows from movie characters like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Hawkeye and Loki, as well as new characters Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk.
