ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee confirms that S.H.I.E.L.D. takes place after the epic New York battle depicted in The Avengers. Joss Whedon, meanwhile, promises “the spectacle of science-fiction storytelling.”
NBC, which first put Midnight, Mass. into development in 2009, has again picked up the rights to John Rozum’s 2002 Vertigo miniseries about world-famous husband-and-wife occult investigators.
Network President Paul Lee said ABC is “aggressively” developing the two Marvel comics properties, and approaching The Hulk as “family entertainment.”
