Marvel Working With Oscar-Winning 12 Years a Slave Writer John Ridley on Supah-Secret New TV Series


After reporting last week that Marvel is developing an Agents of SHIELD spinoff for ABC, Entertainment Weekly has also revealed that Marvel is collaborating with writer-producer John Ridley on “a mysterious new TV series.” According to EW,

We hear the deal involves reinventing an existing Marvel superhero character or property for ABC—but all sides are staying quiet on exactly which title Ridley is adapting.


In addition to writing and executive-producing 12 Years a Slave and the upcoming Ben Hur remake, Ridley is also executive-producer on ABC’s American Crime.

Although the thought of Agent Carter not getting a second season honestly makes me resentful of this SHIELD spinoff, if SHIELD 2.0 does turn out to be Ripley’s mysterious project, I’ll definitely be a little more intrigued. What do you think Marvel’s cooking up for us, gang?
