An Original TV Show Set In The Marvel Movie Universe Under Development

Many of ABC’s plans for Marvel TV series have fallen by the wayside, and while Guillermo Del Toro and David Eick’s Hulk show is still a contender for possible production, they’re topping up the list of potentials with some new ideas.

And one of these new ideas is something I’ve seen Little Bleeders suggest here, in our forums.

According to Deadline, ABC and Marvel are in early development on a TV show set in the Marvel Movie Universe, or as they put it, “the world of The Avengers.”

Think of Item 47, the spin off short that will be included on the Avengers Blu-ray. It’s just that kind of thing that they’re looking at here, but on TV.

A “number of ideas” are on the table, including – surprise, surprise – ” a high-concept cop show.”

I think some kind of anthology could work, though its likely that they’ll try something less ambitious.

More on this in the coming months and years. And years. And years.
