On the heels of DC's own planned Powerless TV series, it's learned ABC has picked up Marvel's Damage Control, which is also described as a half-hour live-action comedy.
Deadline reports ABC has put in for a put pilot committment (which generally means a guaranteed series) for Damage Control.
Damaged Control is being developed for TV by former Daily Show and Colbert Report executive producer Ben Karlin, with the series said to: "follow the overworked, underpaid, clean up crew of the Marvel Universe. Specializing in dealing with the aftermath of the unique fallout from superhero conflicts, they’re the ones who are in charge of returning lost ray guns to their rightful owners, help to reschedule a wedding venue after it has been vaporized in a superhero battle, or even track down a missing prize African parrot that’s been turned to stone or goo."
Ben Karlin is writing the script for the project and wil be executive producer alongside 3 Arts’ David Miner and Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb.
No Marvel characters are yet confirmed for the Damage Control series, but in the comic, Ant-Man and Hercules have been a part of the group at one time or another.
Regarding DC's Powerless, which NBC is picking up, that series is said to be similar in filming to The Office (single camera) and takes place at workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America — with the twist being that it also takes place in the universe of DC Comics.

Check out the "Baby Titan" clip from the live-action Attack On Titan movie above and the "Slaughtering Titans" clip and "Titans Attack" clip below.
Attack On Titan screens in select U.S. theaters this month (part 1) and next month (part 2).
Attack On Titan Part 1
Japan, present day. The sudden arrival of the Titans - mysterious, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour human beings one after the other - brings mankind to the brink of extinction.
Fast-forward 100 years. What remains of the human population now survives in relative peace behind massive walls erected in defence against the Titans. Yet once again, that peace is shattered when a Colossal Titan, measuring over 50 meters tall, smashes through the wall and allows a horde of other Titans to enter.
Eren Yeager had resigned himself to a life confined behind these walls. "Nothing I do would make a difference", he thought. But when he joins the 'Outer Wall Restoration Team' set up to fight against the Titans, he is reunited with Mikasa, a childhood friend and someone he had long rued not being able to save. The new recruits embark on a mission to plug the gaping hole in the wall and stop the waves of titans once and for all. With humanity's survival on the line, will there be a future for Eren and Mikasa, and for mankind itself?
Attack On Titan Part 2:
Eren and the others set out on a mission to restore the Wall that had been destroyed by a colossal Titan, but they're suddenly faced with a quagmire when they're attacked by a horde of Titans. Shikishima, the Titan-slaying captain of the Scout Regiment, arrives to save the day, but the Titans show no sign of letting up. During the battle, Eren is badly injured, and in the process of saving his friend Armin, he's swallowed whole by a Titan. Just as all hope seems to be lost, a mysterious Titan with black hair suddenly appears and begins annihilating the other Titans.
If this mission fails, it will spell the end of humanity. Why did the Titans appear? Why do people continue to fight? The last counterattack to save human civilization is about to begin.

After grossing over $400 million worldwide, the sequel to Mark Millar and Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service looks to start filming early next year.
THR reports Fox Studios wants Kingsman 2 to film this April, even though there is not a script and Taron Egerton may have a scheduling conflict.
It's noted Fox has first dibs on Egerton, so that would mean as long as the script is ready, Kingsman 2 would kick off in the Spring.
Kingsman: The Secret Service debuted this past February and took the world by storm with a budget of $81 million. Egerton plays Gary Unwin. The movie also starred Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Hamill.

The news comes from the Tracking Board which states the animated Ghostbusters film is being produced by Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman through their Montecito Picture Company, with Ali Bell and Kristine Belson overseeing for Sony Pictures Animation.
It's said that the animated Ghostbusters movie will be similar to the 1984 original film which sees a "group of scientists teaming up to fight off ghosts, using gadgets and gizmos to capture the menacing ghouls who have invaded Manhattan."
The rumor may have some merit as Sony is also developing an animated Spider-Man feature film.
Sony's new Ghostbusters kicks off with Paul Feig's female cast on July 15, 2016 starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth and Neil Casey.
The original actors are also set to cameo with Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver returning.
An animated Ghostbusters TV series aired back in 1986-1991 and in 1997.

With Marvel's success comes everyone else trying to hop on the bandwagon.
Of course it makes sense for Warner Bros. to do it with their DC properties, but now Transformers is trying to create a shared universe and, up until now, a Terminator Universe was also being planned (both by Paramount, BTW).
Prior to the release of Terminator Genisys, in addition to two more sequels, it was said a Terminator TV series was also being planned.
However, that isn't the plan anymore.
Terminator Genisys tanked with its release in the U.S. ($27 million opening weekend), and while it did well overseas, it's said the film will still loose money.
So who's to blame?
According to THR, it's 32-year-old billionaire David Ellison, who financed Terminator: Genisys.
According to the report, Ellison offered his "two cents" a bit too much which resulted in a sub par movie. The report notes that this is the current trend in Hollywood (save for Disney) in that studios get outside financing, which in turn sees the financiers (i.e. "producers") getting directly involved with the movies -- resulting in flops.
Another example given is Thomas Thull of Legendary Entertainment who scored success by parterning on the Nolan Batman movies, but ended up losing money on Pacific Rim, with the sequel in question as the release date was recently shelved.
Ryan Kavanaugh is another example given, with it noted his Relativity Media is in bankruptcy.
The moral of the story seems to be for these billionaires to "put up" and "shut up," but the report mentions that might be difficult due to their billion dollar egos; so there may very well be a lot more subpar movies on the way.

Kevin Feige recently offered why Captain Marvel was dropped from The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and now the Marvel Studios president and producer comments on the potential of MMA fighter and actress Ronda Rousey playing the role of Carol Danvers.
Now Feige weights in on the matter while speaking with IGN.
"I love it," Feige said about the Ronda Rousey for Captain Marvel campaign. "That happens occasionally, and I think that's a testament more to the strength of the characters."
Feige continues with recollection of other actors vying for roles.
"Going back to my early days at Marvel, there were always various people campaigning to be Wolverine. I guess that was pre-Twitter and pre-Internet days, but still for some reason would pop up in Wizard Magazine. Wizard Magazine would always have 'this person wants to play this role!' It's a testament to how great the characters are that it appeals to such a wide range of talented, talented people."
Ronda Rousey was recently cast in the Roadhouse remake; Kevin Smith has also voiced his support for Rousey as Captain Marvel, and all the attention has even led to an offer for Rousey to star as Captain Marvel in a porn parody.
"Captain Marvel" has a November 2, 2018 release.

The BBC has announced a new Doctor Who spinoff with Class, which looks to be aimed at younger viewers as it's about a group of school kids attending Coal Hill School, which has shared a history with the Doctor for some time as companion Clara Oswald recently taught there.
Class is being written by Patrick Ness and is described as: Incredible dangers are breaking through the walls of time and space, and with darkness coming, London is unprotected. With all the action, heart and adrenalin of the best YA fiction (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Hunger Games), this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you’ve never seen them before.
“No one has documented the dark and exhilarating world of the teenager like Patrick Ness, and now we're bringing his brilliant story-telling into Doctor Who. This is growing up in modern Britain - but with monsters!” Steven Moffat told the BBC.
Writer Patrick Ness added: "I'm astounded and thrilled to be entering the Doctor Who universe, which is as vast as time and space itself. There's so much room there for all kinds of amazing stories, and to work with Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin to find a place to tell one of my own has been an absolute joy. I can't wait for people to meet the heroes of Class, to meet the all-new villains and aliens, to remember that the horrors of the darkest corners of existence are just about on par with having to pass your A-Levels."
Class is being developed for BBC Three consisting of eight 45 minute episodes; the series is executive produced by Steven Moffatt, Patrick Ness and Brian Minchin.
The series will film in and around Wales from Spring, 2016 and be on air next year.

Will the Marvel super hero movies go the way of the Western genre? That's pretty much what Steven Spielberg recently said, but guess what? That's okay with Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige.
Feige recently took part in an Avengers: Age Of Ultron Blu-Ray event where he discussed Marvel's Phase 4 plans, Infinity War, Marvel TV, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man. IGN caught up with Feige to get his thoughts on Spielberg's comments as well as what Batman Vs. Superman director Zack Snyder recently had to say about Ant-Man and the Marvel movies not being iconic.
Regarding Spielberg's comments, Feige offered the Western genre lasted almost fifty years, so what would mean Marvel is still in its infancy.
"The Western lasted 40-50 years, and they still pop up occasionally," Feige said. "It's been, what, eight years since Iron Man 1 if we count that, which I do, as the beginning of our MCU? Maybe [the superhero genre] will only last another 42 years."
Feige also offered a rebuttal to Snyder's comments that Marvel movies are the "flavor of the week."
"I think we've been doing pretty well. I'm very confident in the films we've announced that we have coming forward that they're going to be surprising and different and unique," Feige offered. "They all happen to be based on Marvel characters and Marvel comics, but from a genre and a cinematic perspective, they're all very unique. Civil War may as well be a different genre from Age of Ultron."
Feige continued by offering an an example of comparing Spielberg and Snyder's sentiments to movies that have adapted popular novels, as obviously the novel-to-movie industry is booming and won't be going the way of the Western any time soon.
"The way Winter Soldier was a political thriller, I think there is a more emotional and more geopolitical and real world through line through Civil War than there was in the broader Age of Ultron with the killer AI Tony Stark invention," Feige said. "I think it's the same thing as saying: 'I don't know how many more movies can be made from novels. I think people are going to bored with novels being turned into movies. I don't know how long it's going to last.'"
Speaking of the Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan also recently fired a few shots in the direction of Zack Snyder defending the Marvel brand as well.
