Comic TV Shows Are Exploding On the Scene!
There’s a lot of comic book heroes and adventures being developed in the TV shows that will air over the next two years. We already have “Arrow,” which is based on DC Comics “Green Arrow,” and this year they’re adding “The Flash,” produced by the same creators and developers of Arrow.
Other companies are developing properties such as Luke Cage, Daredevil, the Defenders, and another comic book “hero,” and yes, I put that in quotes, because he isn’t exactly a clean-cut superhero, and that is Constantine. It’s a little harder core that most of the other comic book adventures will be, after all, a hero that has demon’s blood in his veins and uses dark magic to pursue those that he goes after, can’t be considered exactly a “good guy.”
And, based on all the interest in zombies in recent years, the CW is bringing “i-Zombie” out which will be about a med student turned zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to “live.” And I used “live” in the broadest sense!
There is also a project called “Powers” where we have two police detectives living in a world where there are superheroes and super villains. Needless to say this is one I’m going to have to check out before I commit to watch it!
Also, they are working on a “Supergirl” one hour TV show. I am looking forward to that one!
So, we’re going from only a few comic book-based stories to quite a few, however, that’s usually the way it works as things become successful they start having imitators of that success. At least that’s what they hope!
