Marvel Studios Plans Massive Small Screen Expansion

The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is looking especially bright on the small screen. Following the full season pick-up of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” last week and rumors of a proposed Agent Carter spinoff series comes word, via Deadline, that a 60-episode package is being shopped around to cable networks and VOD distributors. It is said to include four dramas and a miniseries of some sort, although specific details are currently being kept top secret.

Although plans for a 60-episode commitment are virtually unheard of, the outlet hints that Marvel is looking to break new ground with their approach and that the package could ultimate go directly to Netflix, Amazon or WGN America. By planning 60 episodes from the beginning, it’s a good bet that Marvel is looking to construct some character and/or plot crossovers within the five new shows.
