Word on the street is Marvel and ABC are working on another series from the money-making franchise. This time, it's the comedy "Damage Control." The series follows a clean-up crew patching up the messes our superpowered friends leave behind.

If the show gets picked up for a full series, it would prove Marvel is the master of crossing between movies, traditional television and the trend we can blame for "Netflix & chill": streaming.
ABC already has multiple Marvel-inspired shows in the works or already airing. Let's count 'em.
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is in its third season and "Agent Carter" finished its first season in February and was renewed for a second season in May. (Video via ABC / "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., ABC / "Agent Carter")
But let's not forget the other shows in different levels of production at ABC: "Marvel's Most Wanted," a spinoff of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and a very secret upcoming project by John Ridley.
Marvel also has a slew of different shows either on or coming soon to Netflix. (Video via Netflix / "Daredevil")
"Daredevil" is getting ready for its second season on the streaming giant, with "Jessica Jones," "Luke Cage" and "Iron Fist" on the way. (Video via Netflix / "Jessica Jones")
For Marvel, the best thing about taking over TV is the ability to basically force fans of the "Avengers" films to watch. By setting the shows in the same universe, hints about movies or a character's backstory make for some serious can't-miss television moments.

So, even though we don't know much of anything about who's in or who's in charge of the newest Marvel addition, based on Marvel's track record, people will probably be tuning in.
