Marvel Expanding TV Line-up to Add Four New Shows + A Miniseries?

Don't you love it when there is a question mark after a headline? I know my EIC does.



Source: Deadline

Because Agents of Shield has been "so awesome," I guess Marvel figures to add more to the small screen.  Deadline is reporting that Marvel is quietly assembling a package of four new series plus a miniseries, around sixty episodes, to sell.  They may pursue Netflix, Amazon, VOD, Cable, and others to carry the shows.

This news is in addition to the Agent Carter series that Marvel is already in development on, following Cap's WW2 girlfriend, Peggy Carter.  A one-shot short was featured on the blu-ray release of Iron Man 3.  Whether this has already been offered to ABC or will be wrapped in with the other new series offerings above is unknown.

I think a Dr. Strange series could work pretty well.
It could be like "House" meets "Supernatural".



Actually, after I typed that, I'm reconsidering that second line.

If it's got Haley Atwell in a skirt and a low-cut blouse punching things, I'll watch it.

In fact, all shows on TV could benefit from more of this. And tigers.

I am actually pretty excited about the prospect of an Agent Carter series but God I hope that they learn from their mistakes with Agents of SHIELD first.

Also, I know this is an odd thing to say but it's unfortunate that Jeremy Renner isn't a little less high profile star than he is. Bro, a Hawkeye television series in the style of Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye series would be a great addition to the Marvel television universe, bro.

I can agree with this. :)

Unfortunate, because Arrow would likely steal any thunder(bolt) a Hawkeye series could muster. It would be good for a character like Hawkeye, who probably won't get a solo movie of his own, to have a series in which he can be developed as a full character.

And unless an Agent carter series turned out to be an ensemble cast type of show, I don't think it would suffer the same problems SHIELD is. Especially if it's a period piece.

But god, I would kill five baby cats for a Sharon Carter series with Atwell as the lead. Peggy will suffice, I suppose.

Since he's seen so many failed attempts on the big screen, a well done Punisher series would be great to see

I’d rather see a big Dr. Strange movie. One of the Bloodstones could make a good Supernatural like show.

Black Knight to fill the fantasy role. And Agents of Atlas cause they’re so awesome! :-D

Punisher on Netflix, HBO, possibly FX could be wonderful.

Heroes for Hire would right it's self! 3 main characters with a rotating cast of other "heroes" for specific missions and clients. Misty Knight much like she did in the last incarnation of the comic book would be the one that sets up all the mission and brings in the heroes for hire. Danny Rand aka Iron Fist could fund the whole operation through his company Rand Industries. Luke Cage aka Powerman, if it's got Iron Fist you gotta have Powerman, it could all be his idea as he brings all the parties together. Then the entire Marvel Universe of B, C, and D list characters are at your disposal. Need someone to steal some precious items: Black Cat, need a martial arts master: Shang Chi, etc, etc, etc. The possibilities are endless for this one.

Daredevil, superheroics meets Law and Order. Crime dramas. especially court room crime dramas have always been popular with viewing audiences, and superheroes are at the height of their popularity right now. Combining these two with a underdog hero like Daredevil that people could really get behind and root for is a no brainer. Throw in in Foggy Nelson as his comedic relief and this show should easily be a ratings success.

I like the idea of Dr Strange, House meets Supernatural but I think I really want to see Strange on the big screen instead.

Thought of another, an obscure character to be sure but Night Nurse might work as a series as well, or have a whole show featuring characters like her, Morbius, Werewolf by Night, etc. Could be a nice play for those characters and again all that magical supernatural stuff is very popular right now.

I like this, but I'd throw in the detective agency/bodyguard angle. Have it as a modern day A-Team meets Burn Notice. They could easily build up minor characters like Prowler.

Me too, but I think a Dr. Strange series (or maybe call it "Strange Tales" or something) has serious potential, too. Using flashbacks like Arrow does, we could see Strange training with the Ancient One & his rivalry with Mordo. We could see heroes like Jack Russell, the Bloodstone family and even Blade appear. As for enemies, how about werewolves, vampires, Deacon Frost, Nightmare, Mordo (after a slow burn), and Dormammu (eventually)?
