Speaking at an Television Critics Association panel earlier today, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee discussed the network’s Marvel television properties including the Netflix shows in which they have a stake.
In regards to “Agents of SHIELD,” Lee says the upcoming third season will feature a bunch of characters with super powers: “S.H.I.E.L.D. itself has a really interesting next season. You probably know that Skye suddenly had super powers. She’s Inhuman and now the real thrust for next season is are you Inhuman? You’re going to seem ore characters with super powers. They’ve arced out a really fun season.”
Lee is keen to do more with Marvel on ABC, but doesn’t want to oversaturate the market: “We would [do more Marvel]. Obviously we’ll be very careful not to overpromise. Our studios make shows we do for Netflix. Daredevil is a big hit. S.H.I.E.L.D. is a very strong asset. [I’m] very bullish about Marvel and its future on the network.”
