Marvel Developing New TV Shows

It looks like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is just the beginning!

First, they dominated the box office with Marvel's The Avengers. Now, the company is looking to dominate TV ratings by boosting their presence on their small screen, too! According to Deadline, Marvel is working on a 60-episode package to sell. This package would include four series and one mini-series for video on demand and cable channels. The website claims feelers have been put out there and there's already interest from both digital and traditional cable networks. Rumored candidates include WGN America, Netflix and Amazon.

There have been previous reports that one of these potential shows could be an Agent Carter series. As you may recall, the one-shot on The Avengers blu-ray, Item 47, focused on S.H.I.E.L.D. and now there's an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series. Peggy Carter has her own short on the Iron Man 3 blu-ray there are reports that Marvel is considering moving forward with the premise.

What shows would you like to see Marvel move forward with, Viners? Heroes for Hire? Young Avengers? Daredevil? Runaways? Punisher? Cloak and Dagger? There's so many options, so you can bet we're pretty excited to see where this goes!

I'd love to see them adapt Heroes for Hire and The Runaways. An Agent Carter show would also be badass.

Heroes for Hire would be so good. Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Misty Knight etc

Fantastic!

I hope this is true!

I hope they have at least one show with a superhero/vigilante as the protagonist, maybe Hawkeye/Black Widow?

Punisher on HBO. They don't have to fit him in the MCU, make it his own story, no other heroes, just about him. I feel like they can do that with a show easier than a movie. Other than that, I would love to see Daredevil on the big or small screen, done the right way.

A mature moon knight television show could be very cool.

Punisher would be good. If there dont shy away from blood.
Or perhaps a villain series. Like Dr Doom (im aware marvel doesnt have right to it, but one can dream)
Daredevil needs a movie. A dark and gritty movie. Al though a series would make sense. They need to show hell's kitchen properly

Any of their street-level teams would work on TV, but (as Agents of Shield is proving) they need to scale for the format. Getting too big just looks bad on TV. She Hulk might be a good fit, especially if you combine a legal procedural drama (as is popular on TV).

Regardless of the show, I'd love to see Forbush Man and D-Man make appearances.

Is there any chance Marvel can make an X-Men live action show? I know they can't make the movies, but a high budget, well acted X-Men show would be super duper good.

Other than that, whatever they want is great, I just don't want another Agents of Shield type show--that shows not bad, but I want some damn superheroes in my Marvel. And not the superheroes we get in like Arrow or whatever, I want dudes in bright colors with emblems on their chests!

Crazy. That sounds pretty awesome though.

Who I'd like to see:

  1. Black Panther
  2. Punisher
  3. Daredevil
  4. Guardians of the Galaxy (probably too much complicated CGI for a tv series)
  5. Nova (same as GotG)
  6. Inhumans
  7. Heroes for Hire
  8. Hulk

I want a super hero tv series. Not a series where they just make references to Super Heroes.

Heroes for Hire...and cast Terry Crews

Please let some be superhero shows with established Marvel characters. Using such a powerful franchise to do ancillary stuff like Agents of SHIELD (which I do like) seems like a missed opportunity. They could certainly twist things up a bit like CW did with Arrow.

Shows I think would work and wouldn't be hideously expensive:

Daredevil

Black Panther

Hawkeye (probably not, with Arrow out there)

Power Man and Iron Fist

Daredevil BEGS for a serialized TV show premise rather than a movie. Look at Waid's run! No possible way that could be adapted into a sensible, cohesive, entertaining movie. Murdock is tailor-made for a TV show. Low effects too!!

DAREDEVIL!!! Thats the perfect character for TV! His stories aren't big enough in scope for a huge movie anyway (I love DD, but come on! 99% of his stuff is pretty doable on a TV budget)

punisher on HBO or showtime please ...not in tampa like the first movie please in nyc ,,,but like the original punisher war journal comic was...with microchip as backup the original micro not his son ...with kingpin also as the main boss sending assaind to kill the punisher ,,,, please cable tv marvel not abc ...and please the last two punisher movies had too much comedy ...nothing funny about the punisher ... if showtime did dexter with him tracking down a killer almost every episode imagine what they could do with the punisher tracking down killers drug dealers ect.

I'm not the biggest marvel fan but heroes for hire would be an awesome show!!! I'm honestly not a fan of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D I would still like to see Agent Collision but I could care less about everyone else.

Runaways or X-Factor, I think, would make awesome tv shows. Heroes for Hire as well.

Whatever it is should have SUPERHEROES in every single episode. Marvel putting out TV without superheroes is so so underwhelming. Do porno companies put of movies without sex in them!?!?

As crazy-over-the-top-massive-budget as it sounds, I wish Marvel would do a sort of TV version of the fantasy anthologies that gave rise to so many of these characters in the first place. A 4-6 episode arc about a certain character, then move on to another character, then come back to the popular characters with further adventures. It would allow them to test the waters with, say, a Daredevil legal procedural, a Silver Surfer philosophical self-examination (don't know if Marvel has TV rights), a Captain Marvel alien adventure (Carol Danvers meets X-Files with more punching), or a Heroes for Hire without committing to 26 episodes of it. Sort of a superhero version of the Outer Limits or Twilight Zone.

Of course, I thought the Agents of Shield show would offer some possibility for this, but it's been very reluctant to adapt anything from the comics to the screen. Maybe its a sign of how nervous Marvel is of giving a bad first impression for a comic character that could be the "next Iron Man".

She-Hulk could get her own show. I mean let's face it, we haven't had a Hulk TV show in years and CBS was going to do a She-Hulk show before good old Jen was created to put the kibosh on that. So after all this time a She-Hulk show could work! Besides it would have all that courtroom stuff people love!!!

Sounds cool. I mean really how long has it been since Marvel's created a new A list character? I sure would be willing to give something new a try on tv (opposed to comics where I have to buy the new and unproved creation...)

Heros for Hire would be awesome, would love to see Luke and Iron Fist

Btw if you haven't given agents of shield a try its on tonite and thus far its been awesome, check it out.

If they can't make TV shows that don't feel incredibly cheap and flat, like the one they have out right now, then they shouldn't be making any.

A dark Punisher Show or Daredevil show!!!

To be honest, Marvel is doing too much. They gottta improve Agents of Shield first.

Isn't Hulk still being developed? I'm on board for any of the street levelers also. Black Panther would be cool, it could tow

the line between street level crime, and hi-tech adventures easily.

Daredevil or Punisher as long as it's a darker show and better than Agents of Shield
