Adding to the enormous success of Marvel Studios’ films, Marvel TV has been growing in terms of new MCU shows like never before. In the last year or so, we’ve had The Punisher, The Defenders, Inhumans (yuck), Runaways and Cloak & Dagger hitting our screens for the first time, not only on Dinsey-owned ABC but also on Netflix, Hulu and Freeform. It seems, however, that despite expanding the homes of MCU shows, and Disney developing its own streaming service soon to be launched, Jeph Loeb and his team are still interested in developing new content for their most frequent collaborators at ABC. Deadline reports that ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey has expressed interest in adding another Marvel show to her network saying:
In terms of Marvel, we have some things that we are in discussions with them right now that we are in development. I’m very excited about it.
Now, it does seem fitting that ABC is super interested in keeping Marvel close to them and away from other networks, since their source material is gigantic and their only Marvel show currently airing, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., seems to be closer to its end rather than its beginning. It is also worth mentioning that this does not necessarily mean we are getting more MCU on ABC, considering that, even if they get past these discussions and order a pilot, it could still never get ordered to a full series, like what happened with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff Most Wanted. There also has been no shortage of properties speculated to be in development with the network. Remember John Ridley‘s super top secret Marvel project?
