Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show?
(a previous post)
Im still holding out hope for AKA Jessica Jones. Its a procedural (shes a p.i.), its a good way to intro luke cage and/or HfH, and you can test out various marvel b listers on a weekly basis. Plus you have the big names as backdrop.
For the casual/non fan, a detective show is easy to get into. And the limited series is a great template for a pilot and the first few episodes.
Plus, Joss Whedon could run a show like this in his sleep. He may want to do something a bit more challenging though. To me it seems like a no-brainer.
Casting the lead is critical of course. Someone of Eliza Dushku's "caliber" wouldnt cut it. JJ is pretty much defined by her attitude/personality rather than her generic, seldom-used powers.
