Marvel and ABC Teaming on Avengers-Themed Series?

by SuperHeroHype

July 27, 2012

Deadline is reporting that Marvel's TV division is in talks with ABC and ABC Studios about developing a drama series set in the world of The Avengers.

The site says: "I hear that the connection to the Avengers franchise would be light as the project is expected to be set in the universe and feature some of its themes and feel but may not include any characters from Joss Whedon’s blockbuster. I hear the project is in a nascent stage, described as “a kernel of an idea,” with a number of scenarios explored, including a high-concept cop show."

Guillermo del Toro recently said that he was still working with ABC on a new "Hulk" series as well and that they were "waiting on a particular writer to do a rewrite on the pilot."

What do you think the possible series set in the "Avengers" world could be about?

Probably a SHIELD/24 style show. Something set at the lower rungs of the organization. Maybe Coulson could appear? Wasn't his bread and butter TV shows?

I don't see what else they could do that wouldn't cost massive amounts of money.

Love this idea of an Avengersverse TV show. We could get stuff set in that continuity every week instead of having to wait impatiently each summer. Sign me up.
