Marvel Considering TV Show Set in Avengers Universe

Marvel Considering TV Show Set in Avengers Universe

Due to the massive success of The Avengers, Marvel has started becoming more confident with their properties, and not content with the second phase of their comic book movies, the studio is now considering a TV series set in the Avengers universe.

Marvel is currently in talks with TV giant ABC about their idea, and according to Deadline, the studios so far only have a “kernel of an idea”, and that the series could only have a fairly loose connection to the Avengers universe – which means you won’t see Thor, Iron Man, or Captain America becoming major characters. Which isn’t a bad thing in itself, as their recent Item 47 short proves that there are still stories to be told in the Avengers universe even if it doesn’t have any direct connection with a spandex-clad character.

On the other side of the pond, FX channel is currently mulling over the pilot for the Marvel-inspired Powers, which means ABC could have a ready made competitor when they decide to enter the superhero TV market.
