Ever wondered what happens after the epic superhero-on-supervillain battles that level entire series? Well it looks like we’re going to find out, with Variety reporting that ABC are developing a TV series based on the exploits of the superhero clean-up firm, Damage Control.
Intriguingly, the series will apparently be comedy – which admittedly the basic premise lends itself to. It’s a rather obscure choice for adaptation, sure, but it’s fills a niche that Marvel TV hasn’t really filled as yet. Its Netflix output like Daredevil and Jessica Jones is free to be dark and gritty, while Agents Of SHIELD and Agent Carter can be more geared towards the prime-time slot.
Reassuringly, Modern Family‘s Ben Karlin is producing alongside David Miner (30 Rock) and Marvel head of television Jeph Loeb, so at the very least it has people on board who know what they’re doing. While there’s no word on casting yet, we’re sure there’ll be some familiar faces (and numerous mentions) among all the carnage.
An air date for Damage Control is yet to be announced. Check out the comics that inspired the series in the 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine now.
