With the announcement that Marvel will be holding a panel at Comic-Con focusing on its upcoming television properties, theories and hopes quickly surfaced. Will we get some casting announcements for the new S.H.I.E.L.D. show? Maybe they’ll talk about that long-rumored live-action Hulk show? We would also love to see some footage from the upcoming Avengers Assemble cartoon.
No matter what the announcements are, the prospect of Marvel taking over the small screen seems to be inevitable. While we’re concerned that the success of the Avengers movie will force all of the company’s properties to share the same look and tone as the film, we’re holding out hope that some of Marvel’s more experimental ideas from the ‘80s and early aughts will find new life on TV.
