Three Live-Action Marvel TV Series in Development
After Disney’s acquisition of Marvel, the company decided to create a television division for Marvel Studios with Jeph Loeb (Heroes, Smallville, Lost and Buffy the Vampire Slayer) hired to run the operation. Marvel later announced they were developing a hour-long live-action Incredible Hulk television series for ABC, and have now added to the list, stating they are developing two other live-action TV shows based on Marvel properties. It is not yet known which properties they are looking to bring to the small screen, but rumours point to Cloak & Dagger and The Punisher.
According to /film, during an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Disney CEO Robert Iger was asked about the progression of the Marvel/Disney integration saying “ [With Marvel] we’ve taken back distribution, or bought back distribution from [Viacom Inc.’s] Paramount, for some critical franchises. Notably, “Iron Man 3″ will be distributed by us, and “Avengers.” We’re developing three live-action series for ABC and ABC Family. You can buy Marvel products at Disney stores. And we’re working on Marvel games.”
