Robert Downey Jr. being in any one of Marvel’s new streaming shows, though possible, might be difficult to imagine. Especially given his character’s fate. But there was one early Marvel TV series that Downey was interested in appearing in.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was one of Marvel studios’ first attempts at expanding their universe into the world of television. The series was created by Joss Whedon, and followed S.H.I.E.L.D. members as they investigated strange events around the world. Marvel producer Kevin Feige felt it was possible for some of Marvel comics’ own superheroes to perhaps make an appearance in the television series.
