AVENGERS Movie Universe Project Coming to Television?

According to Deadline.com, Marvel Entertainment’s TV division and ABC Studios is considering ideas to “explore the mythology” of the Avengers movie universe on the small screen. The online Hollywood trade reports conversations between Marvel and ABC are in the “nascent stage” and a number of scenarios are being discussed about a drama series – perhaps a “high concept cop show” – set in the Avengers world.

According to Deadline, “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 Joss Whedon’s blockbuster.”

Establishing a primetime foothold is said to be a priority for Disney-owned Marvel. The company already has a Hulk TV series in some stage of development and a writer for the Avengers-verse project is reportedly being sought.
