Marvel is shopping a package of four drama series and an additional miniseries to cable channels and video-on-demand companies, including Netflix and Amazon. Here's my Wish list of of the shows I would watch
#5) The New Warriors
Will their filmed exploits be uplifting, or just exploitative? And is heartland America ready for Big City Super-Heroics? Although reality type series are a little played out I just think this would be a lot of fun. Like the Amazing Race meets the Marvel world Six young Heroes travelling cross country in an RV This six issue series ran in 2005-06 Night Thrasher strikes a mysterious deal with a Reality-TV producer, the team moves out of New York to help the villain-plagued denizens of small-town America. with a hero like Microbe that can talk to germs how could you go wrong? It's comic gold I'm telling you! lol
#4) The Punisher
Now that Dexter is gone Showtime could have the perfect replacement with The Punisher. After all he is a vigilante who employs murder, kidnapping, extortion, threats of violence, and torture in his war on crime. This could also be the perfect outlet to let people straighten up and get to know the real Frank Castle
#3) The Runaways
A group of six kids whose parents routinely meet every year for a charity event. One year, the kids spy on their parents and learn they are "the Pride", a criminal group of super villians.The kids stop them from completing a sacrifice and steal weapons and resources from their parents.They learn that they've inherited their parents' powers and become a somewhat dysfunctional yet loving family. Definitely sounds like some good teen age angst type drama to me. The good kind like you haven't seen since Freaks and Geeks. I mean this is a good story a lot better than The Tomorrow people.
#2) Gamma Gal, Attorney at law!
Yes the She-Hulk! Why not she's Smart, sexy and with a sense of humor second to none. Able to break a case as well as the bad guys back. Jen Walters is truly the total package of femininity in the Marvel Universe. Able to change from ally McBeal to one of the gorgeous ladies of wrestling at will she could make the Good Wife look like a lot lizard. Can you imagine all the special guest cases she could handle?
And now for my number one wish! Drumroll please!
#1) Heroes for Hire, inc.
Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Combining to form a private investigation company because even heroes need to get paid! I enjoyed the show "Life on Mars" and would love to see this set in the 70's, like the original 1978 storyline. Could you imagine if someone like Tarentino made this show? They could take this story line and pay great homage to the Kung Fu, and Blaxploitation films of the times (call me racist but I grew up with Shaft, Superfly and Enter the Dragon on VHS and I loved those movies!) and those and the spaghetti westerns is pretty much what he did with Django Unchchained. Not to mention recurring characters like Misty Knight and Colleen Wing! It would definitly not be suitable for network TV if it were to be the GREAT show that I like to imagine it could be.
So there you have it my Marvel TV wish list! What's your shows? Let me know below!
