Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show? - Part 1

Marvel hasn't bought into the whole "realism" thing that DC/WB have been wedded to for the last few years, so the show is likely to hew more closely to the tone and look of the source material. They will probably use variations on the costumes in the comics, adapted to a TV budget of course. There is a lot they can do with minor heroes and villains that would be interesting without being too expensive.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
