Marvel Developing More TV Content
Netflix and others approached with 60-episode offer

Marvel Comic Characters

Following on from the company’s latest stab at TV with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., it appears Marvel is ready to make even more of an impact on the small screen beyond its animated fare. According to Deadline, it has an intriguing package of four drama series and a miniseries ready to shop to the likes of Netflix, Amazon and other VOD providers, plus the regular US cable channels.

This being Marvel, of course, security is tighter than a SHIELD briefing, and no one is saying anything solid about what the shows might actually feature. It’s also early days for the project and there’s zero word about attached talent.

Apparently there has already been interest from numerous possible carriers, though a deal is ways off because we’re sure companies will want to know what they’re getting in this ambitious plan – and agreeing to make 60 episodes as a job lot is no small commitment.

In addition to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which has been struggling in the ratings but recently scored a full season order), Marvel has been rumoured to be developing a show built around Agent Carter, though there is no sign whether that would be part of any deal.

So come on then: in an ideal world, which Marvel characters would you want to see on TV? Suggestions below and on Twitter, if you please.

I got bored of the constant references to the MCU in Agents of SHIELD, and I stopped watching half way through ep.2. MArvel should make a Punisher tv series that's based off of some of Garth Ennis' stories in the MAX stuff. More

RE: Marvel Developing More TV Content
I also think shipping the show to the likes of Netflix/Amazon may be the way forward anyway given the nature of how most people watch shows. Watching series live is becoming less common due to the ability to record multiple shows, which in turn hinders ratings and the Networks don't take into account such viewings. Therefore in order to maintain a show, something like Netflix may well be the way forward for some Marvel based shows. Although, I truly believe with the gore shown in shows like Tru More

Struggling
Whilst I've been unimpressed with Agents of Shield I'm not sure where you're getting your information about it 'struggling in the ratings'. It got 12 million in it's opening week in the US and has had 8 million the two after. Quite normal to see a big drop after a debut episode and the 2 after have been more than respectable. More

Uhm, struggling in the ratings? You mean the EIGHT MILLION PEOPLE IT'S STILL GETTING? yeah, that's an utter failiure. More

Agent Carter
Would definitely watch a show of Agent Carter. More

Are Marvel spreading themselves too thin?
It's exciting to see but they need to be careful that they aren't just rehashing things for money. With Phase 2 consisting of 3 sequels and a series that is essentially Avengers 1.1 (Agents of SHIELD is enjoyable but seems incapable of stepping out of the shadow of The Avengers and suffers when it tries to emulate the scale and budget of the Marvel films), the last thing we need is another film that rides the coat-tails of the existing Marvel films. An Agent Carter show would essentially More

We have "Talking Dead", why not "Talking Deadpool"? It could air after each Marvel episode and it would be hosted by The Merc With A Mouth and some totally random guest and they could discuss the show and poke fun at it. I see it as a bit like "Man to Man with Dean Learner", only involving more doorknobs and chimichanga. More

I think someone should make a show following the villain, it would be a interesting turn if evens rather than following the heroes. Weather it be Marvel or DC I think it would be a good way to go, maybe bring a differant dynamic to comic book show. More

She-Hulk
She-Hulk - the hilarious misadventures of a single female lawyer who also happens to be a massive green super-hero. It could be Marvel's answer to Ally McBeal. (You know, the RDJ season, not the Jon Bon Jovi/long-lost daughter season). More
