According to Nellie Andreeva over at Deadline.com, preliminary discussions are underway with regards to bringing Marvel’s Avengers to the television screen.

The talks seem to be at an embryonic stage – or as Andreeva puts it, “a kernal of an idea” – and it seems that nothing is certain.

The only aspect that is ‘probable’ is that it will be set in the Avengers universe.  There’s no guarantee any of the characters from Joss Whedon’s blockbuster would even feature, and the show could be a complete spin-off set within the realm of the comic series, perhaps a “high concept” police show.

According to Deadline:

Establishing a primetime foothold has been a priority for Disney-owned Marvel. The company has developed several projects for ABC Studios over the last couple of years, one of which, a Hulk series, is still in the works. Search is under way for a new writer to pen the project.

I’m sure we’ll find out eventually.
