Marvel’s small-screen expansion continues.
According to Deadline, ABC has given a production commitment to a series focused on female Marvel superheroes. Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg has been tapped to create the hour-long drama and will executive produce it alongside Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb.
As expected, there aren’t many details about what the show will deliver. Deadline confirmed the untitled series will revolve around “lesser-known Marvel characters”; however, the storyline is still unclear.
If the project does eventually air, it would join Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the only Marvel series on ABC. The network previously broadcasted the Marvel shows Inhumans and Agent Carter; however, both were canceled after only one and two seasons, respectively.
Keep it locked as more information about the potential show becomes available.
On Wednesday, Variety reported Disney was developing a number of limited series based on “second tier” Marvel characters, such as Loki and Scarlet Witch. The projects are expected to land on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, and will reportedly span six to eight episodes in their first seasons.
There are currently six other Marvel Universe shows airing exclusively at Netflix: Daredevil, The Punisher, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders; however, the latter isn’t expected to return for a second season.
Marvel also produces Cloak & Dagger on Freeform, as well as Runaways on Hulu.
