Disney is on a roll in making money with the Marvel property as we now have news that there are three TV shows in the making. The news came from an interview with Robert Iger, Disney CEO, who had this to say to the Wall Street Journal:

[With Marvel] we’ve taken back distribution, or bought back distribution from [Viacom Inc.’s] Paramount, for some critical franchises. Notably, “Iron Man 3″ will be distributed by us, and “Avengers.” We’re developing three live-action series for ABC and ABC Family. You can buy Marvel products at Disney stores. And we’re working on Marvel games.

As far as which Marvel heroes we’ll be seeing on the TV screen, this is what we know. It looks like ABC will be getting an hour long Incredible Hulk TV show, which showed up on the internet not too long ago. The other two possible series are The Punisher and Cloak and Dagger, in which the later might become an ABC Family series. What’s known for sure is that Jeph Loeb will be one busy fella over at Marvel’s television department.

What do y’all think of this move? Is Disney being money hungry with the Marvel property? Or do you think Marvel is finally getting the TV chance with Disney? Also, other than three mentioned above, what Marvel character would you like to see have their own TV show? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
