With a slew of superhero-driven TV shows constantly in various stages of development, we’ve now got word on one series we won’t be seeing any time soon.
If you remember, last year saw ABC begin early work on a show based on certain female Marvel characters. Back then, Wonder Woman scribe Allan Heinberg was tasked with developing the show for the network. Now though, Deadline is reporting that ABC has decided to pass on ordering a pilot episode for the project.
Right now, it remains to be seen whether this concept has been completely scrapped or whether, instead, the effort is being taken back to the drawing board. Either way, in its intended format, this series has been canned. There’s also the possibility that ABC may have paid Marvel TV a kill fee which means that the series can’t be taken to any other network.
What we’d heard about this untitled show, the plan was to spotlight lesser-known female figures; the Kate Bishop incarnation of Hawkeye and the Kamala Khan take on Ms. Marvel just two such heroines rumoured to be part of the project.
As ever, expect more on this show if and when it develops further.
