Marvel is Developing a New Female-Centric Series for ABC

Marvel has really been dominating lately in its field of female-forward action. And while we’re stoked about Captain Marvel coming to theaters in March, it would be cool to see more female superheroes on TV as well, to get us through while we’re in between Marvel films. Now, with the MCU thriving on streaming services, an all-new female-centric Marvel series in in the works over at ABC.
In typical Marvel fashion, details about the series are being kept on the DL, but we do know this: ABC has committed to an hour-long drama starring the lesser-known female characters within the MCU. The series is being written by Allan Heinberg, who crafted DC’s big screen adaptation of Wonder Woman.
This leaves us to question what qualifies characters as “lesser-known.” She-Hulk? Kamala Khan? America Chavez? All well-known to the comic community, but not so much to MCU buffs.
It’s also worth mentioning that this announcement comes shortly after Marvel Studios announced plans to develop several live-action limited series for Disney’s upcoming streaming service. Those shows will be produced by Kevin Feige, while the ABC series will be produced by Jeph Loeb and Marvel TV.
The series would fit in perfectly into ABC’s current lineup with a strong appeal to women such as Shondaland dramas Grey’s AnatomyHow to Get Away with Murder, and the recently departed Scandal.

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally. His bride-to-be, Catwoman, stood him up at the altar and he’s in trouble with the law for possibly botching a case. So, if ever there was a time for Batman to turn to a higher power, it might be now.You can read the full preview here.
