>A second Marvel comedy is in development at ABC. IGN reports the new project will be developed separately from the previously announced "Damage Control" series, but there are no details available on what the subject of the new show.
>"In the long term, we'd love [the new series] to be [on ABC]," revealed ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee.
>"We definitely want to do Marvel comedies as well as dramas and of course, as you know, we supply lots of dramas to Netflix," he added.
>As to "Damage Control," he shared, "That's the one that's going to be coming out this season. I haven't read it yet. I can't wait to see it. We hope it's going to be great."
>In addition to "Damage Control," ABC has ordered a "Most Wanted" pilot and has a John Ridley series in development in conjunction with Marvel Television. The network currently airs "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Agent Carter."
Marvel TV Implosion when?
I'm an MCUfag, but I just can't do this anymore
I'm going to kill myself after Infinity War Part 2
I don't understand this, and I fucking love MCU
Aren't Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter just doing "decent" for ratings? Not blowing anyone away? Why would they greenlight a bunch of shit with one of them taking away well-received characters from AoS
I want a sleazy rated R comedy about Starfox as he goes through life having sex, doing drugs, and learning to love himself, his roots, and maybe a little bit of monogamy in the process.
It'll either be a show about a handful of z-listers nobody cares about, or it'll be about a bunch of OC donut steels making references to Iron Man
I didn't know we were getting Damage Control. I actually am looking forward to see how it turns out. I enjoyed the first mini-series when it came out around the time I first started reading comics. It's how I learned about the X-men.
How is Damage Control and DC's new "The Office in the DCU" pilot going to fare? Seems like awfully similar concepts premiering around the same time, though Damage Control sounds much better.
>"Honey, I'm home!"
>*THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE FOR THANOS, CANNED LAUGHTER*
>*THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE,FOR DEATH, CANNED LAUGHTER*
>"How many times do I have to tell you I'm not your "honey"?"
>Deadpool show up
>Death is happy now
>Thanos frowns "Go away!"
>Deadpool walks off "Do you know how much they paid Fox to have me here?! You party pooper, keep going with your /%&%# sitcom I'm out!"
>Audience goes "Ooooooohhh"
>suddenly the back wall explodes
>gamora walks in and shoots thanos off screen
>audience claps, whistles as gamora poses
>Thanos: "I'M ALRIGHT"
>audience groans and gamora fires shots off screen
On a related note have you seen the cancelled Heil Honey I'm Home pilot? The sitcom following Hitler as he keeps his Jewish neighbors from ruining his dinner with Chamberlain
Mate, I feel the general public will put up with a hell of a lot of Marvels bullshit when watching the films and given that they haven't put out a non enjoyable, legitimately shit film yet, that's a justified thought.
But I do think if they started doing a show with fucking puppets in it and asking us to believe that its just part of their world then the public would drop it in no fucking time and would lement the years that Marvel put out good films.
And don't give me that Muppets bullshit. The Muppets work their shctick of "They're real puppets guys!" thing where we all seem to play along. The key part is, we know they are puppets, the fact that they are is the fucking point.
If we are asked to accept that the people in the MCU don't notice they are puppets its a step too far.
The comics do shit like that, but they can afford to be shit and experimental as people will still buy them in both the hope that the story might get better or because they buy the series out of habit or an attachment to the character. Films don't have that luxury of proliferation and fast turnover.
Fuck I'm high
It's basically Marvel's "Leave It to Bane".
>Comedy show about the daily bugle before Peter Parker arrives with JJJameson berating the poor photographer that he's pictures are shit because they don't capture the face because the studio can't get the actors to sign a tv contract.
I'd watch both of these, but just for one season. The novelty will wear off and these seem more like ABC trying to hard and Perlmutter trying to fuck shit up.
Most likely Candidates
>Squirrel Girl. Cheap powers, popular character.
>She-Hulk. Chance to develop Hulks universe a bit more, popular character.
>Great Lakes Avengers.
>Howard the Duck. Most promiinent of the Marvel comedy characters, but hella expensive.
>Slapstick. Same as above, but without any popularity to fall back on.
>Bob, Agent of HYDRA. Probably part of Deadpool film rights.
>Gwenpool. Not nearly proven enough.
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF its going to be Squirrel Girl since they think her book is actually funny and she just became(not mutant) please no, well I'll just have to not watch it I guess. Pink haired people will love it
Considering their first comedy series is fuckin Damage Control and that all of ABC's Marvel output is about normies I figure we're going to be getting something a lot less capey than any of that, unfortunately.
...Oh for fuck's sake it's going to be Frontline isn't it.
God damn, not only is Marvel trying to completely destroy the comics market again with their constant relaunches and gorillion variants, but they're doing their damnedest to pop the comic book movie/tv show bubble too.
AoS is barely ahead of Flash, it has a better average because it's premiere was huge, 4.9m viewers, but dropped to an average of 3.8m for subsequent episodes. Flash in comparison has averaged 3.6m viewers all season. Share wise, Flash is doing better than AoS, without the premiere spike, Flash has a 1.4 share to AoS's 1.37, keep in mind that the CW is a smaller network than ABC.
Agent Carter was bigger but suffered the same drop, 6.9m viewers for the two episode pilot down to 4m for the finale. Same with it's share, 1.93 to 1.4.
Arrow is doing okayish, usually around 2.5m viewers and 1 share, it did get a huge bump with the Legends/Flash crossover.
Gotham is doing well, 4.3m viewers on average and 1.51 share.
For perspective, Flash and Arrow are CW's best performing shows, Gotham is Fox's 2nd best, AoS and Agent Carter are 10th and 12th respectively for ABC.
Here you faggots bitch & moan about Fox not relinquishing their rights to the F4 films to Disney, yet here they are doing absolutely fuck all with what they got. They're using D, no Z listers for boring tv shows on local cable.
