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

Well stuff like Roxxon Oil is likely to go over the audiences' heads. They won't necessarily know it's an actual Marvel reference. It could just sound like any other name to them that could appear in any other show. They could easily show up in a show like Dallas.

I just hope that Whedon does use references like these though and not inventing brand new ones for the sake of it.

Accutech is another Marvel organisation which I believe appears usually in Iron Man.

And I hope for fictional places like the island of Boca Caliente in the Caribbean, where AIM had a secret base.
