Last month, we reported that Marvel Studios and ABC are teaming up for a new superhero-themed TV project. Today, we have word that Marvel's The Avengers director Joss Whedon will be developing this potential series.
Joss Whedon will develop Marvel's The Avengers TV series for ABC
Our previous report revealed that this upcoming show will be set firmly within the Marvel Universe, featuring the same types of themes displayed in Marvel's The Avengers, though it may not include any of the same characters.
This live-action project is still in the very early stages of development, although Joss Whedon's involvement certainly adds another intriguing layer to this mysterious spin-off.
Marvel Studios is also developing a new animated series entitled Avengers Assemble for Disney XD.
