Avengers TV Series?

Rumors

Marvel and US TV network ABC are currently batting round ideas for an Avengers-related TV series, according to Deadline.

And if it ever does happen (because at the moment it sounds like it’s at the “swapping ideas over lunch” stage) it’s unlikely to feature the Avengers, but rather just be set in the same universe. Deadline says a “a number of scenarios being explored, including a high-concept cop show.”

Of course, ABC is also developing a Hulk TV series with Guillermo de Toro (again, it far from a – ahem – green light at the moment), which sold also be slotted into the shared universe, though you have to wonder if del Toro would want his project hamstrung by having to play to Marvel’s rules.

You also have to wonder if the Marvel One-Shot short film on The Avengers Blu-ray, Item 47, about a SHIELD clean-up squad, is being considered as a kind of back-door pilot, or at least as an example of what can be done in the Marvel shared universe without breaking the bank.

I may watch a show about the agents of Shield, could be interesting.

They have to pull some pretty good Avengers to make this work.  Which it won't.

 It will not live up to any positive expectations.

maybe its time for the studios to change thier approach, maybe they should make 12 short films, one a month, and release them in theatres, you don't think legions would line up once a month to catch an episode of the Avengers? that's potentially a lot of money, and an episode per month, seems like they could do it, tone down the fx shots a little, but not a terrible compromise, just a slight one! embrace the comic book aspect a little more and abandon the hollywood formula! I would love to see pretty much every comic book character get a series, that's how thier stories have always been told!

The whole Shield clean up crew sounds an awful lot like Marvel's Damage Control which makes me wonder why don't they just pitch Damage Control.  It seems like an ideal fit for episodic television.  It was basically about a firm that specialized in cleanup of Superhero battles.

A billion dollars brings all kinds of spin off ideas.

A SHIELD show could be cool. It could star Coleson & be set before the movies showing him dealing with increasingly dangerous threats to the world. We could get some cool Marvel "villians of the week" out of it.

I agree with goldeneyez and spider hero!!!!

monkeyfoot 7/30/2012 7:34:38 AM

Goldeneyez, you beat me too it! I think Damage Control would be the perfect companion TV series to the Marvel movies. The comic has interesting characters if I recall (been awhile since I read it). It would be involved with the clean-up of superhero battles. Heckfire, they could practically do a whole season on The Avengers aftermath. It could also work in conjunction with SHIELD collecting various items left over in the rubble. I would see it as a humorous Marvel version of the show Warehouse 13.

Now that my brain has started working I'm thinking it could even be shot in a reality show style like Home Makeover.
