A new rumor indicates Marvel Studios is developing a Thor spin-off series Journey Into Mystery for Disney+.
The rumor comes from Mikey Sutton in his Geekosity Facebook group.
“Disney+ is about to embark on a Journey Into Mystery. It may take a few years, but Marvel Studios is reportedly developing a revolving live-action TV series on Disney+ called Journey Into Mystery.”
“True to the title of the comic book which introduced Thor, Journey Into Mystery will focus on related characters. This will provide Marvel Studios to spotlight Thor family figures such as Lady Sif, the Warriors Three, the Enchantress, and finally Balder the Brave.”
Sutton also details this show will more than likely introduce Beta Ray Bill and Hercules as well.
“But it’s even bigger than that. They are discussing on having Beta Ray Bill and Hercules (who was introduced in Journey Into Mystery Annual No. 1 in 1965) be the focus of certain story arcs. The tales will take place in past and present.”
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a rumor about a series focusing on Thor’s sidekicks.
Back in May, a rumor began circulating that Marvel Studios was developing a Lady Sif television show.
Those rumors indicated that it would follow Sif during her banishment from Asgard and involve the Enchantress. However, it also detailed that Beta Ray Bill, the Korbonite hero, would also be introduced into the MCU.

One thing does appear to be clear and that is that Marvel Studios wants to introduce Beta Ray Bill.
The character was introduced to the MCU in Thor: Ragnarok. His visage can be seen gracing a tower on Sakaar.
While we got an Beta Ray Bill Easter egg in Thor: Ragnarok, the character was actually expected to make his live-action debut before they decided to cut him.
Kevin Feige explained back in November 2017:
“There was a Beta Ray Bill, but it was so quick that you would have the same complaints that you have now. He was in it a little bit more and it just didn’t do justice. And the feeling is, if you can’t do it justice, do it later.”
While Beta Ray Bill didn’t get fully introduced in Thor: Ragnarok, there have been plenty of rumors including this most recent one involving a Journey Into Mystery show.
A previous rumor noted that Beta Ray Bill could be introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and that he would be played by Zac Efron.
That rumor indicated that Beta Ray Bill might actually be an experiment of the High Evolutionary rather than the champion of the Korbinite race.
What do you make of this new rumor? Would you want to watch a Journey Into Mystery series focused on Sif, Enchantress, Beta Ray Bill, Hercules, Baldr, and The Warriors Three?
