    I hope Joss really gets to let his Joss flag fly with a series like this. I loved Avengers and thought he did a great job of making a crossover like that work, but compared to some of the other stuff he's done, the story telling just can't compare.

    Could the show he's working on be Hulk? Del Toro did say they are waiting for a big-named writer to be announced.

    I'd really love to see him team up with BKV on a Runaways series.

    This is awesome news! We need a heroes for hire street level series in the MCU or damage control. Either one could introduce lots of characters

    It's going to be a team story, because big casts are what he does. Runaways or an X-Men property seem like the most likely candidates.

    Any Joss Whedon TV show is a must-watch for me...so a Joss Whedon Marvel show? F*** YEAH.

    I would LOVE if it turned out to be Heroes for Hire.

    Of course, that would pretty much be a show about Super-Gunn and Kung-Fu-Wesley.

    Which I am okay with.

    Pretty much any Marvel team book that's B-List or lower is a likely candidate.

    And isn't explicitly X-Related, 'cause of Fox.

    But seeing as how Runaways was a book Whedon actually wrote, and the creator of the book, Brian K. Vaughn, has TV writing experience and could probably work with Whedon as co-showrunner, that seems the most likely.

    There already was a Runaways film in development, this would be something that ABC could air Sunday nights with Once Upon A Time.

    Last year they had 4 projects for the pilot season. All of them fell through. Now they're rewriting Hulk again to tie in with marvel cinematic universe. Also another marvel project to tie in with the avengers but none of the main cast will be in there. I'm sure things will work out so well for this this year.

    This Hulk series was always going to be tied into the MCU.

    I thought all the shows that were being worked on(Hulk, Punisher, Cloak & Dagger) were going to be associated with the MCU?

    I had a thread going for this over in the avengers workd section. When the abce show was first mentioned the other week. Great to hear whedon is going to help develop it.

    Now I just curious to see what the show will be. Since of course it won't be about the main avengers guys. Most be to prricey for a tv show budget. I am still rooting for a shield show. Where we could see appearance of maria hill(smulders) once in awhile. And have the shield no name guys lower level shield comic guys pop in. And take out terrorists and low lvl general marvel baddies. And this could be on budget show no need to have the helicarrior be main set. The agents could work out of a hidden base.

    Or maybe whedon can redevelop that jessica jones show that abc first passed on. He be good with that with his female show background. And again another easy way to throw some shield guys in and what not.

    I thought the Hulk was gonna be its own thing. Also, while the Del Toro quote syncs up with Whedon developing a show thing, I think the show Whedon is developing is the one Deadline reported on a few weeks ago.

    I would either want a Shield show or Young Avengers/Avengers Academy show. Though to bad that BW/Hawkeye are played by strictly movie actors since it would be a nice way to flesh them out more on tv.

    Would be cool if its the del toro hulk show. But its more likely the other. Which I still say shield would be a good concept to go with. Orr a jessica jones/heroes for hire hybrid show. That is what I like to see.

    I doubt its runaways since marvel been trying to get a film going. And cloak and dagger would be cool but rrumors was forr that to be on abc family. But nothing on that or mockingbird has come up since jessica jones show was passed.

    I also doubt it be dd, right now dd is in flux with fox and on verge of going back to marvel. But I rather he be a film character. But could work on tv budget.

    I doubt we see blade again after last one didn't fair well. And shehulk I would leave for avengers sequels or for hulk solo films. Unless hulk show happens to have herr show up there.

    Now young avengers could work counting if they went with lower class powered guys. But still a group hero show could be pricey. So I still think shield or maybe damage control would be more budget friendly shows.

    I don't like the idea of Young Avengers or Avengers Academy just now because it feels so soon after The Avengers. The Avengers should be established as a team for awhile before something like this comes along.

    o, I would love for the runaways to be made into a show, it would be difficult to do though without mutants. characters like molly (was that her name?) would have to be adjusted,

    Marvel didn't sell Fox the concept of genetic mutation. All they have to do is not feature the X-Men and they're good.
