Marvel and Disney are looking for more ways to capitalize on the awesome success of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. Marvel’s TV division is currently in talks with ABC to possibly develop an Avengers type TV series, where they will continue to explore the mythology of that universe.
Deadline revealed that it will be a drama series set in the Avengers world, but 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 the film.”
Nothing is official or set in stone, they are basically at the very early stages of trying to figure what they could do if they decide to move forward with it. The site explains that it’s “a kernel of an idea,” with a number of scenarios being explored, one of which includes a high-concept cop show.
This is intriguing! I’d love to see something like this happen! It could be a huge hit! I’d love to hear some of the other ideas they are throwing around. Hopefully they are able to come up with a cool idea to move forward with.
