Following the not-so-surprising cancellation of Agent Carter as well as the network passing on Most Wanted, some might have speculated that ABC could be moving away from producing television series based on Marvel properties. Well, that doesn’t seem to be the case at all as it was revealed at TCA today that the network will be meeting with Marvel in two weeks to discuss their future together.

What could be in store for Marvel over at ABC? Well, we’ve yet to hear word on Damage Control following the series receiving a put pilot commitment or the secret project that John Ridley has been developing, so I’d say it’s a safe bet that those two are going to be included in the conversation. Dugney further commented on the matter stating the following.
“We all came to an agreement that the next show that we want to do together is something that is as creatively strong as it can be.”
When asked if they would like to “carve out narrative niche for a family of Marvel shows as Netflix has done”, Dugney responded that is an “interesting question, and we have talked a little bit about that, yes.” From the sound of things, it looks like ABC could end up launching their own connected corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that’s pretty exciting. Perhaps if fans respond well enough to Robbie Reyes this season on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. we could possibly end up seeing Ghost Rider spinoff into his own series? Let us know what you think about the above in the comments section below.
