Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show?

A little bit of news about the SHIELD show, indirectly:

Just a week after greenlighting a thirteen-episode first season for the monster-of-the-week series, Deadline is reporting that ABC has temporarily shelved Weird Desk out of concerns that it may be too similar to Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., the comic book adaptation being developed for the network by Joss Whedon.
So if they're saying that Weird Desk was going to have a "monster-of-the-week" format, and it was too similar to SHIELD, sounds like SHIELD will, indeed, have a "superhero/villain-of-the-week" format. Hope so, anyway.


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
