Marvel, ABC, and Whedon Play It Safe with S.H.I.E.L.D.
My first post on this blog a couple of weeks ago concerned Joss Whedon's new contract with Marvel Studio. More specifically, the TV component of this contract. I was excited at the possibilities of the Marvel Universe coming to the small screen (ABC). One possible show I especially want to see made is an adaptation of the Runaways comic created by writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina). Unfortunately, Runaways the TV series is a no go for now. The studio, network, and director have decided to go the way of S.H.I.E.L.D.
