ABC Plans to Develop Marvel Superhero Series with Kevin Feige

Alec Bojalad Jan 8, 2020

With Agents of Shield about to expire, ABC is looking to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to develop another series.

Today, in the department of "Well obviously," Deadline reports that ABC plans to enter into discussions with Marvel Studio president Kevin Feige to develop a new Marvel superhero series for the network.

The news comes from ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke's appearance at the Winter TCA Press tour.

“We love our partners at Marvel and we’re sad to see (Agents of Shield) go, it’s been a big part of our history. We’re looking forward to working with Kevin Feige and we’re at the very beginning of conversations with him now about what a Marvel and ABC show might look like. Right now, Marvel’s focus has been on Disney+, as it should be,” Burke told Deadline.

Marvel TV Is Being Shut Down, 90% Of Staff To Be Laid Off

There might be a ton of very powerful superheroes in the McU, but perhaps none more so than the guy who makes all of the decisions behind the scenes.

Yes, Kevin Feige is the man with the plan over at Marvel Studios and was recently promoted to Chief Creative Officer, which means he’ll now be in charge of everything pertaining to the company. So, instead of just overseeing the House of Ideas’ live-action movies, he’ll also run the television, film and comic book departments, among others. This seemingly spelled the end of Marvel Television as we know it and today, Deadline has confirmed that that’s indeed the case.

According to the outlet, the TV division will now be phased out. Projects currently in production will continue but “any further development is being scrapped,” which means that 90% of the staff will also be laid off. As Deadline explains,

American Gods Adds Game of Thrones Baddie as New Leprechaun Liam Doyle
Iwan Rheon is becoming one lucky bastard. The actor, who famously portrayed Game of Thrones villain Ramsay Bolton, has been cast as a new leprechaun for the upcoming third season of Starz’s American Gods. Rheon’s character, Liam Doyle, is described as “charming” and “good-natured,” according to the official announcement.

Though little is known about Liam at this time, it’s worth noting that he’s now American Gods‘ sole leprechaun, following the departure of Pablo Schreiber’s Mad Sweeney in Season 2.

Taskmaster & Florence Pugh's Yelena Revealed in First Black Widow Footage
The first Black Widow trailer has arrived and it brought with it some first looks at major characters who are poised to make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debuts. Specifically, the trailer provides us with the reveal of both Taskmaster, who will be the main villain, and Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova, who is playing Natasha Romanoff's sister. In both cases, the characters allow for speculation, but there is also room for critique, specifically in the case of Taskmaster.

We already took a look at David Harbour as Red Guardian. Now, it appears that Florence Pugh's Yelena is also a major fixture in this next Marvel movie, and is positioned here as a big player in the events that will unfold in Black Widow. She fights with Scarlett Johansson's Natasha before they join forces to fight whatever forces they need to tackle. At this point, the movie's plot is

Daisy Ridley Reportedly Eyed For Female Lead Of Sherlock Holmes 3

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are finally set to return as Holmes and Watson for the third time. Fans have been waiting eight years and counting for another outing in the franchise, but Sherlock Holmes 3 is at last about to enter production. And now, ahead of work beginning on the project, directed by Dexter Fletcher, We Got This Covered has received some new intel about the threequel that gives us a feel for what we can expect in the film.

To begin with, we’ve learned who the female lead of the movie will be. Our intel points to the character going by – at least, at the moment, things could change during shooting – the name Sidney. She’s described as a crime beat reporter for the San Francisco Herald, though the twist is that she’s actually an undercover agent for the Us Marshals. The character is said

Secret Wars Movie Reportedly In Early Development At Marvel

Marvel Studios put all of their eggs in one basket back in 2008 when they decided to launch their unprecedented shared universe model. Having a number of blockbuster franchises tied together into one single overarching narrative had never been attempted before on such a scale, and in the decade since the Marvel Cinematic Universe has proven to be so successful that virtually every other studio has seemingly attempted to launch a cinematic universe of their own at some point.

The culmination of the twenty-two movie arc came to an end with Avengers: Endgame, which brought the Infinity Saga to an immensely satisfying conclusion, became the highest-grossing flick in history, and now finds itself in the midst of a massive awards season push. In short, the McU has done alright.

The franchise has since moved on, of course, expanding into television with a raft of shows announced for Disney Plus, while the

Marvel Plans To Show Us What Happened To Captain America In The Other Timeline

Avengers: Endgame seemed to have drawn a fairly definitive line under Chris Evans’ tenure as Captain America, with Steve Rogers bowing out as gracefully as we all expected. While many fans went into the movie with trepidation, fully expecting Cap to sacrifice his own life to protect the greater good, instead it was revealed that he used time travel to live out a life free from conflict before passing on the iconic shield to Sam Wilson.

Ever since that scene came to a close, fan speculation has run rampant about just how the first Avenger spent the intervening decades. Even the writers of the movie themselves have offered up several theories as to how Cap lived a full and happy life with Peggy Carter, while constantly reaffirming that Evans was well and truly done playing the character who became the heart and soul of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Despite this,

First Plot Details For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Have Been Revealed

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is definitely on the way, it’s just on hold right now. Originally, it was to have already been shot by this point and be ready to drop in May 2020. Due to James Gunn’s temporary firing, however, it’s at least three years away. But the thing is that he already completed the script for the threequel before he went off to make The Suicide Squad for DC. So, the story is out there, and this might be how it goes.

We Got This Covered has been informed by reliable sources – the same ones who told us the Inhumans are being rebooted in Ms. Marvel, and that the studio considered recasting Hawkeye, both of which we now know to be true – about the general plot of GotG Vol. 3. And according to our intel, there are two main storylines. One is that Rocket will

Avengers 5 Will Reportedly Release In 2023 And Be Smaller In Scale

Update: Trusted industry insider Daniel Rpk has now backed up our report with a recent Tweet.

Original Story: Marvel fans were surprised when the full line-up for Phase 4 was revealed this past summer and it didn’t contain an Avengers movie. Each of the three previous phases of the McU have been built around a big team-up flick or two, but this upcoming slate suggested the studio was retiring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. It won’t be for long, though, according to our intel, which points to a potential release date for Avengers 5.

We Got This Covered has been informed by our sources – the same ones who said Black Widow was getting a sequel, which seems all but confirmed now – that Marvel’s current plan is to get the next Avengers film in cinemas for 2023.

Ex-Marvel TV Boss Spent $100,000 Fixing Medusa’s Wig In Inhumans

For all of its promise of otherworldly drama and sky-high production values, Marvel’s Inhumans was effectively dead on arrival back in 2017, ultimately leading to its cancellation the following year.

It’s a pity, really, considering this is a Marvel property bursting at the seams with potential. Alas, the history books will tell you that the short-lived Inhumans series will go down as Marvel TV’s first real failure. There have been disappointments, sure, but the eight-episode debut of Inhumans was torn to shreds by critics for its ham-fisted, melodramatic story and uninspired characters.

But with news that Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb is stepping down from his position as part of a major shake-up, Cbm is reporting today that Loeb spent an eye-watering $100,000 on VFX in a last-ditch attempt to fix Medusa’s wig.

Jeph Loeb to Step Down as Marvel TV Head

Joseph Baxter Oct 22, 2019

Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb is vacating his position, leaving behind a transformative legacy of comic book TV content.

Marvel’s live-action arena is set for a profound sea change with news of the imminent exit of its longtime television head, Jeph Loeb.

Loeb – an esteemed veteran comic book writer of top-tier titles across all major publishers – who has served as Marvel Studios’ Executive Vice President and Head of Television since 2010, is reportedly set to formally announce his exit by Thanksgiving, according to THR. It seems that Loeb has been planning said exit behind the scenes and is reportedly working on a transition plan for the company.

This news arrives shortly after recent developments have seen Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige receive a wider IP purview under the Disney corporate tentpole, last month brought in as a producer for the Star Wars franchise, and, on October 15, promoted

Is Marvel's Inhumans Getting a Disney+ Reboot with Vin Diesel as Black Bolt?

Is Marvel's Inhumans Getting a Disney+ Reboot with Vin Diesel as Black Bolt?
Will we see an Inhumans reboot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point? For now, all we have are rumors on that front, but Anson Mount has just thrown a little bit of fuel on the fire. Mount, for those who perhaps don't recall, played Black Bolt on the short-lived Inhumans TV show, which aired on ABC. Now, Mount has weighed in on the recent reboot rumors.

Anson Mount was recently a guest at the Dallas Fan Days convention. During a panel, the subject of this alleged reboot of Marvel's Inhumans TV show came up. While it's highly unlikely Mount would be involved in any way, he did make it seem, at least based on what he's heard, that something could be brewing in that department. Here's what Anson Mount had to say about it.

Anson Mount Seemingly Confirms Marvel’s Rebooting The Inhumans

ABC’s Inhumans is perhaps the one major failure in the whole of the McU, with the critically-panned series never making it past eight episodes back in 2017. The fact that it was a flop must’ve been a big blow to Marvel, seeing as they once had major plans for the franchise. It looks like the studio has decided to try again with the Inhuman Royal Family though, as reports have been saying a reboot of the characters is on the way.

Up to now, there’s been no official word on the news, but one star of the series may’ve just confirmed that it is indeed happening. Anson Mount, who played silent Inhuman king Black Bolt, spoke to the crowd at Dallas Fan Days convention over the weekend about his belief that Vin Diesel is likely to take over his old role.

Kevin Feige Planning To Reboot All The Marvel TV Characters In The McU

With a Thanos-like click of his fingers, Kevin Feige is reportedly planning to render every single existing Marvel TV show non-canon and reboot the characters for the McU. According to our sources, this means that, as far as McU continuity is concerned, the thrills of Daredevil never happened, the Runaways never ran away, the Punisher didn’t punish anyone and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.may as well have stayed at home. Instead, the characters used in the Marvel TV shows will be rebooted, either for inclusion in the Disney Plus lineup or perhaps on the big screen.

For those that have been watching the awkward relationship between Marvel Studios’ film and TV divisions, this isn’t wholly surprising. Despite early claims that the Marvel TV shows would be as crucial to the McU’s ongoing story as the films, most quickly realized that they weren’t.

Marvel Developing An All-Asian Team-Up McU Project

Marvel Studios will deliver their first Asian superhero in the form of Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi come February 2021’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. And it seems that they don’t intend to stop there with their Asian representation, as we’re hearing that they also have plans to create an all-Asian super-team in the McU before too long.

Sources close to We Got This Covered – the same ones who said the Inhumans will be rebooted in Ms. Marvel and that Wiccan will debut in WandaVision, both of which have now been confirmed – tell us that Marvel will be bringing the New Agents of Atlas from the comics into the live-action franchise soon. We don’t yet have enough information to say whether this will take the form of a movie or a TV show, but it’s definitely on the way.

Marvel TV Officially Dead As Kevin Feige’s Named Chief Creative Officer

There are plenty of powerful superheroes in the McU, but perhaps none more so than the man who makes all of the decisions off the screen.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has just been promoted to Chief Creative Officer, overseeing basically everything pertaining to the company. Instead of just heading up the House of Ideas’ live-action movies, he’ll now be in charge of television, film, comic books and more. This unfortunately spells the end of Marvel Television as we know it.

The relatively new division of the massive Disney conglomerate has been failing to capture the success of its extremely successful cinematic counterpart for a while now. Shows like Legion, The Gifted, Agent Carter, Iron Fist and Inhumans weren’t able to attract enough viewers to justify lengthy runs and even highly-anticipated series like Luke Cage, The Punisher and Jessica Jones ended much sooner than fans expected.

As Marvel Studios Moves Into Series, TV Unit’s Focus Is Unclear

  • Variety
As Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige builds out his own TV universe spawned from the “Avengers” films, Marvel’s dedicated television unit is seeing its live-action world contract.

Feige’s division — part of the Walt Disney Studios feature-film operation — is currently working on multiple shows for the nascent streamer Disney Plus centered on Marvel Cinematic Universe characters like Falcon and Winter Soldier, as well as Loki, and Vision and Scarlet Witch, with shows based on She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight also in the works. Meanwhile, with Hulu having this week killed a planned series based on the character Ghost Rider, Marvel Television — the division of Marvel Entertainment responsible for the comic-book publisher’s initial push into live-action TV under Disney ownership — now has few announced live-action projects on the air or in the works.

The Inhumans Will Return To The McU In Ms. Marvel TV Show

Marvel once had big plans for the Inhumans. There was originally set to be a movie featuring Black Bolt and co. coming this past summer but then the project morphed into a TV series. In advance of it, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. worked hard to introduce the concept of Inhumans to viewers but as it happened, the show flopped hard and was cancelled after only eight episodes. And that seemed to be it for the Inhuman race on screen.

We Got This Covered is hearing, however, that the studio is dusting off its plans for the characters and will soon be rebooting them within the McU. We’ve been told by sources – the same ones who revealed that Taskmaster will be the villain in Black Widow, and that the real Mandarin would be the villain in Shang-Chi – that the Inhumans will return in the upcoming Ms.

Disney Plus Refusing To Accept Previous Marvel Shows As McU Canon

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) has done a brilliant job on the big screen of constructing a shared mythology, avoiding the pitfalls suffered by many similar franchises in over-complicating the world-building. Each installment adheres to the rules and various timelines of the McU, ensuring that the extended universe never becomes too bogged down or ends up tying itself in knots trying to overcome plot holes.

One of the major debates among fans though has been whether or not the multiple TV shows that bear the Marvel brand are officially considered canon. After all, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter were pretty explicitly based in the same universe as the movies, and even featured several supporting characters in either lead, cameo or supporting roles, while the recently-canceled Netflix shows made frequent veiled references to events that had happened in the movies that directly affected New York.
