With Marvel's A-List characters already appearing on the big screen, Disney is going to have to look deeper into the library of Marvel comics characters.
We first see this with the upcoming James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy movie which features a group of lesser known characters that are a rag-tag bunch of space adventurers set to take on a cosmic force of epic proportions in the movie.
Now, we hear from head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, that another lesser known (amongst the general public) property is being looked at with Heroes For Hire.
Loeb tells BuzzFeed that they are looking at it with Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
"Just like we just announced Guardians of the Galaxy, we are certainly looking at the Heroes for Hire franchise which is Luke Cage and Iron Fist," Loeb said.
Most recently, comic scribes Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, with art by Brad Walker, wrote a Heroes For Hire series for Marvel Comics as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book, with art by Walker as well, that the movie seems to be based on.
Interestingly enough, Marvel canceled DnA's series to bring Brian Michael Bendis on board to take over, and they look to be doing the same with a new Heroes For Hire by Bendis later this year.
