This could be a big deal, or a bad one. Deadline’s crack TV Editor Nellie Andreeva is exclusively reporting that two arms of Disney, ABC and Marvel, are talking about a TV show based on the Avengers.
Could be kinda cool, but there isn’t a great track record for TV shows based on big-name comic characters in recent times that I can remember.
And it’s not like the TV show would have Joss Wheedon behind it, would it? What do you think? Would you want to see what they can do with it.
