It’s come to light recently that Marvel is developing five new television projects.
This is a pretty serious undertaking, but it seems as though the superhero corporation has already started working on four drama series and one miniseries. Deadline
reports that altogether they have around 60 episodes to pitch and are looking to sell them to a variety of cable channels and VOD services.
These potential buyers may include Netflix, Amazon and/or WGN America, but no written confirmation has yet been released and it sounds like any channel could be in the mix!
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD
airs Tuesdays on ABC, a channel that is owned alongside Marvel by parent corporation, The Walt Disney Company. Joss Whedon created the series as a spinoff from the Marvel universe we’ve all come to know and love through film. Could these new shows also be part of the same universe or will they go for more abstract concepts?
We got wind of one new series that seems to take place in the same universe and is based on the popular heroine in the latest Captain America movie. Peggy Carter was played in the film by Hayley Atwell, who recently shared her desire to return to the cinematic character - this time on the small screen - with Digital Spy.
More Marvel movies are also on the horizon, though nobody would doubt that. Edgar Wright is currently helming a brand new film adaptation of Ant-Man, which is being cast as we speak. Not everyone’s fave Marvel character, but we at PW just love anything Marvel so can’t wait to see how the movie turns out.
