The island has been hit hard by a series of powerful temblors in recent weeks, including a 6.4 magnitude quake on Jan. 7 and 5.9 magnitude quake on Jan. 11.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are set to reprise their roles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the series, with Daniel Brühl, Emily VanCamp, and Wyatt Russell also starring. The series is said to consist of six episodes and is due to be released on Disney Plus in late 2020.
The show is one of several limited series centered on MCU characters currently in the works at Disney Plus. Others are “Ms. Marvel,” “Hawkeye,” “Loki,” “She-Hulk,” “Moon Knight,” and “WandaVision.”
Kevin Feige, the architect of the MCU, is executive producing all of the shows. Marvel’s past television efforts had been overseen by Jeph Loeb of Marvel Television, but it was announced in December that unit was being shuttered. Marvel is expected to layoff a number of staffers at Marvel TV, though Loeb is staying on through the transition while a number of active projects will be seen through. Feige has been promoted to chief creative officer of Marvel and has taken over the Disney-owned company’s storytelling across mediums, including publishing, film, TV, and animation.
