Marvel's The Avengers has truly conquered the box office this summer, amassing a whopping $615 million at the domestic box office so far. Marvel Studios is also looking to possibly take this superhero team to the small screen, with an Avengers-themed TV show for ABC.
The project is in very early stages at this point, with only, "a kernel of an idea" so far. It is said that there wouldn't be a direct connection between the show and director Joss Whedon's blockbuster. While the series would be set in the same Marvel universe, and feature some of the same themes, it may not feature these superhero characters.
The Avengers can also be seen in animated form on Disney XD's The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and the upcoming Avengers Assemble.
