With the roaring success over the past decade or so of superhero films, and the recent success of shows like The Flash, Arrow, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., more and more superheroes are coming to the small screen. Which new comic book shows are you looking forward to the most?
There has never been this many comic based shows prepping to air (and for good reason). Up until now, we haven't had the technology to keep the budgets low enough to make the shows viable. We now, after the success of shows like Breaking Bad and True Detective, have a different perspective on TV programming. And we have some of the best working actors vying for television work as it gives them more hours to dive into a character.Simply put, this golden age of TV is also the golden age of heroes on television. Vote up the upcoming live action series based on a comic book that you're most excited for!
X-Men TV Series
Reports are coming to light that Fox is currently developing a live-action X-Men TV show. Rumor has it the plan for the show is for it to be based on Peter David's run on X-Factor (the comic, not the TV show for any n00bs out there), and is described to be the "Fringe of the X-Men world."
Based on the iconic Marvel comic, this Man Without Fear (as played by Charlie Cox) will presumably be very different than the much maligned Ben Affleck version. Vincent D'Onofrio is slated to play the Kingpin, Elden Henson is Foggy Nelson, and Deborah Ann Woll is Karen Page.Marvel revealed the series will premiere on Netflix on April 10, 2015.
A mini-series comprised of the entire team of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and possibly some others. Think of it as the Avengers for the small screen. If handled right, if could be amazing.
DC Entertainment plans on expanding their small screen universe even more with a Teen Titans live-action TV series. The show is expected to air on TNT, which will center around Nightwing, and the Titans, which are described as "young Super Heroes-to-be."
