With a worldwide gross of almost 1.5 billion dollars, it’s no surprise that Marvel is looking to continue cashing in on The Avengers. With an Avengers 2 still in talks, Marvel has announced plans for a television series set in the same universe as the first film. It’s hard to imagine Avengers stars like Robert Downey Jr. or Mark Ruffalo starring in the series, but replacing all of the actors doesn’t sound particularly likely either.
Rumors are floating around that links to the actual Avengers might be sparse. Instead, it might instead be simply a drama series that takes place in a world where superheroes exist. There’s no word yet on when this show might become a reality, but ABC has meeting with Marvel about the project. [Perez Hilton]
