REPORT: Marvel Studios Is Developing a Dark Avengers Movie

Marvel Studios has reportedly developed and completed a script based on Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato Jr.'s Dark Avengers team.

The news comes from That Hashtag Show, which reports a script for Dark Avengers was completed, though it does not make mention of who wrote the script. The site also claims the film could end up not getting produced, as Marvel Studios has scripts for a variety of other projects, many of which never see release. Still, the fact that Marvel Studios commissioned the script in the first place could indicate a desire to bring the team into the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future.

The team, which first appeared in 2009's Dark Avengers, launched in the aftermath of "Secret Invasion," an event comic that saw shapeshifting aliens known as the Skrull infiltrate and secretly replace heroes in the Marvel Universe. The team has consisted of such members as Norman Osborn, Sentry, Daken and many, many others.

As the Skrull will play a major role in Captain Marvel, the possibility of a Dark Avengers story hints that the alien race could end up playing some additional role in Phase Four.
