Marvel's Damage Control in development as comedy series at ABC


Marvel Television is looking beyond one-hour action dramas: The Hollywood Reporter says ABC has ordered a pilot script for a half-hour comedy series based on "Damage Control". Ben Karlin, a longtime writer for "The Daily Show," "The Colbert Report" and "Modern Family," is developing the series for the network.

Damage Control was introduced to Marvel Comics in 1988, co-created by the late Dwayne McDuffie and longtime comics veteran Ernie Colón. The concept in both the comics and the prospective TV series involves a construction company that cleans up the collateral damage caused by superhero-related incidents. There have been four "Damage Control" miniseries in Marvel history, with the most recent published in 2008.

Interesting. Hopefully it gets picked up, could be a lot of fun, and offer that other side of the superhero battles we've seen in the films: rebuilding.

Would it be part of the MCU canon?
That's what I was wondering. I'm thinking most likely, but nothing in the article stated anything like that, so we'll have to wait and see when more information comes along. Maybe even at NYCC next weekend.

I'm 99% sure it'll be a part of the MCU.

The article doesn't outright state it, but I find it hard to believe Marvel wouldn't want to integrate it into the existing MCU. I mean, this isn't DC we're talking about here. ;)

Plus, it serves as a potentially awesome counterpoint to the films and even AoS and the Netflix shows. Plus, given Marvel's habit of using humor in their films, a show set in the MCU with a heavy comedic tone should be fun.

Plus there's a wealth of large scale disasters that've happened in the MCU already that could at least be used as fodder for offhand comments.
