‘Wonder Woman’ Writer Allan Heinberg to Write Marvel Series Focused on Female Superheroes
Writer Allan Heinberg is gearing up for his next big project. Heinberg, who wrote the script for the the Patty Jenkins directed hit, Wonder Woman, is looking to bring Marvel’s female superheroes to television with a production commitment from ABC.
According to Deadline, the commitment is for an hour long drama from Heinberg and Marvel Television, with Heinberg penning the series about women characters with superpowers and will center around “lesser known” Marvel characters.
As of right now, further details about the series is being kept under wraps. Heinberg has a an overall deal with ABC Studios and will executive produce the potential show with Jeph Loeb.
Marvel is no stranger to female-centric shows. Superheroine Jessica Jones has her own series on Netflix which is coming back for its third season and ABC had a short-lived, but well-received series called Agent Carter, that followed the exploits of Cap’s best girl, Peggy Carter.
Currently, ABC’s popular Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series coming to an end with its sixth season. So, it is no surprise that ABC is making another Marvel series one of its priorities going forward.
