Do We Need More Heroes? Disney Hopes So.

Many media and tech giants hope to carve out a place in streaming. Disney ’s strategy is to bet you can never have too much of a good thing.

The Marvel spinoff “Hawkeye” making a debut on Disney+ this week is the fifth series from the blockbuster franchise to go live on the company’s streaming service this year. That follows 21 Marvel theatrical movies Disney has released since the first “Avengers” movie in 2012. The company’s Star Wars franchise will likewise see its third major release on the streaming service next month with “The Book of Boba Fett”—a spinoff to the hit series “The Mandalorian” that launched the Disney+ service to great success in late 2019.
