Can’t get enough of the Marvel cinematic universe? Too eager to wait two years in between films? Then today is your lucky day as the superhero juggernaut plans to bring their beloved universe to television, along with ABC Studios.
Deadline tells us that Marvel wants to explore The Avengers mythology through a drama series set in the same world that the film took place in. The report goes on to tell us that though it will feature some of the film’s “themes and feel,” it won’t necessarily include any of the same characters.
As for what premise the show will have, nothing is concrete yet but Deadline states that one possible idea is a “high-concept cop show.” As you can tell, the project is still in the early stages and the search for a writer is still ongoing. If this does pan out though, it could be very successful.
Think about it, Marvel has already extended their cinematic universe quite far, imagine how much further they can take things if the expanded it into television. There would be a lot more possibilities to explore and an Avengers-based show can act as a great way to kill the time in between the films.
Personally, I’m all for this. I enjoy the Marvel movies, a lot. They’re great fun and are always well made. The idea for a Marvel cinematic universe show is very exciting and I’m already starting to think about all the directions that they can take this in.
What do you think? Are you ready to see the Marvel cinematic universe hit television?
