At the TCA Summer Press Tour today, ABC President Paul Lee revealed that a Marvel character would be coming to their hit romantic-mystery series, Castle.
“You know, I don’t know if I’m allowed to say it, but we’ve got a really cool storyline with a Marvel character that appears on Castle this year,” Lee said. “If you guys haven’t seen the finale for Castle from this past season, it’s extraordinary. [Castle creator] Andrew Marlow is really hitting his stride. And that was an underrated show that really found its momentum. And there’s one episode, and I’m probably giving away a secret and I shouldn’t because Andrew is going to kill me, with a Marvel superhero character.”
So, since Castle takes place in the “real” world it may be that this hero will appear via a joey average in a Halloween costume – who knows, maybe it will be one of the less fantastical characters seemingly existing alongside Castle. Either way, who will it be? Will we get big brand name recognition with a character like Captain America, or maybe, do we get Squirrel Girl?
