As part of a new deal he signs with Marvel Studios, the 'Avengers' director is developing a TV project based in the Marvel Universe for ABC.

Get ready to welcome more superheroes to small screen. It has been officially announced that Joss Whedon is developing a live-action TV series based in the Marvel Universe for ABC. This gig is part of an exclusive deal that "The Avengers" helmer has just signed with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015.

Further details about the TV project are yet to be known. Previously, Deadline reported that ABC was in talks with ABC Studios about an "Avengers"-themed drama series. The connection between the upcoming show and the feature film will be loose as it features some of the themes and feel, but may not include the same characters.

ABC has been long trying to bring Marvel characters to its shows, developing a live-action reboot of "The Hulk" since 2010 with Guillermo Del Toro and David Eick, and an adaptation of "A.K.A. Jessica Jones" with "Twilight" scribe Melissa Rosenberg. Both projects were not picked up to series, but the "Hulk" project is still in the works with a new writer to be recruited to adapt the comic.
