Got room for another superhero show on your DVR? Marvel and ABC hope so.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that John Ridley, writer/producer of the award-winning film 12 Years A Slave, is working with Marvel Studios on a new television series for ABC. This would be the third Marvel series for ABC after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter - fourth, if you factor in the reported Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff in development.

EW's sources tell them that Ridley's Marvel project "involves reinventing an existing Marvel superhero character or property" but don't narrow down the field.

Ridley is no stranger to comics, having written several titles for DC's now-defunct Wildstorm imprint including The American Way and a one-shot of The Authority.
