Despite two recent setbacks in Marvel Studios‘ relationship with ABC, the two are still aiming to bring more comic book based series to television.
Agent Carter was cancelled after its second season this year. And the much-hyped Marvel’s Most Wanted was tabled after the pilot reportedly didn’t live up to expectations. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is going strong though, heading into its fourth season this fall.
ABC’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, told the Television Critics Association that she is looking forward to adding more Marvel content to the network.
Since I’ve been in this role, we’ve been in a number of really terrific conversations with the Marvel team, [including] sitting down [with Marvel] in two weeks to discuss our next steps. We have a lot of enthusiasm and we’re very, very excited for the plans they have for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4.
She added, according to IGN:
We’re looking at a number of different things. Some of them are projects that we were working on before and some of them are totally new ideas and IP [intellectual property].
Regarding the possibility of crossovers between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel’s Netflix television shows, Dungey said, “That’s an interesting question and we have talked about that, yes.”
