Could A Marvel Comics-Related TV Series Be Next?

Disney's acquisition of comic book giant Marvel will be finalized soon, and if Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger has his way, the movie screen might not be the only place you'll see their iconic characters... TV could be on the horizon.

"Instead of making a $200 million movie and kind of betting the farm on one character, you can develop a television pilot, a television series," it has been reported that Iger told analysts this month.

Among Disney's many holdings is the broadcast network ABC in addition to cable outlets like ABC Family, The Disney Channel, and Disney XD. Could one of these be the home of a Marvel-related TV series?

One thing's for sure - once Smallville is over there will certainly be an opening for another good super-hero series based on classic characters on television.
