• Deus Ex Machina

    Kind of feels like a spin-off for the sake of a spin-off, but I’m willing to give it a go. It’s a shame that “S.H.I.E.L.D.” is going to lose two great characters, but still, it does free up room for a few new characters (maybe some more Inhumans). Hopefully we get to see Bobbi go full on Mockingbird. I don’t feel like she’s quite evolved into her comic book superhero persona yet, so this’d be a great opportunity to do that.

    What I’d really love to see though is a full blown Marvel superhero TV show. So far all the shows fronted by actual superheroes are on Netflix. If DC can have all of its awesome shows with real superheroes, why can’t Marvel? I mean, all those various government agencies are fun, but give us a real superhero TV show.

      It’s like Gotham. It’s a superhero show without the signature superhero.
      I agree, Marvel on TV should try what Netflix are doing.

  • The Torchwood of Shield then. I think Mockingbird’s a great part of Shield, to have that expanded and hopefully interlooping with Shield would set a good precedent for a Marvel TV universe

  • Gustaff

    Why not just use a less-known Marvel hero and make a series about them? Netflix is doing it for 4 heroes after all and have proved it works,

    • Deus Ex Machina

      Well technically Mockingbird is a less-known Marvel hero. They’re just not stressing the ‘hero’ part of her character all that much at this stage.

      • Gustaff

        I mean give us a superhero that has actual superpowers like the Flash. And don’t mention Sky, she’s the reason I dropped Agents.

        • Deus Ex Machina

          Have you watched it recently? I’m sure I’m not the first person to tell you to get up to date on it because it got really good.

          • Gustaff

            I heard an alien symbiote or something gobbled up poor Simmons.

            I watch online reviews like IGN and What The Flick sometimes. Most agree that out of all the superhero shows, it seems to be Gotham and Agents battling for last place, though I quite like Gotham as I’m not much of a Batman fan.

            This is why I’m looking forward to Jessica Jones and Luke Cage so much. It feels so much like Flash and Arrow.

          • Deus Ex Machina

            Yeah, I can see it being last place with Gotham. In all fairness though, all the comic book TV series at the moment are really good, so even the worst of them are still good shows.

            My feelings towards Gotham are much the same as yours for AoS. I started watching it and then sort of lost interest because it was a little slow. I’ve been meaning to get back into it because I hear it got better, but I’ve just not gotten around to it. Someday…

          • Gustaff

            What I really want to see next is a live-action Static Shock from DC and from Marvel, somewhere not on Netflix I want Blade or Spiderwoman

          • Deus Ex Machina

            If Blade had a series, it’d have to be on Netflix. Otherwise they’d probably end up cutting all the violence out and it’d suck.

            Spider-Woman is a character I actually really want to see in the MCU. If not in her own TV show, then at least in AoS or this new show.

          • Gustaff

            I’ll give you Blade on netflix. My dream TV show would be a really good Spider-Man which will never happen because he is movie gold, but I think Spider-Man would work much better on TV.

          • Deus Ex Machina

            In a perfect world, I’d love it if all the superheroes had their own TV shows instead of movies. Movies are great and all, and really rake in the dollars, but a twenty-something episode TV series offers so much more room for character development and complex story arcs. Unfortunately that’s never going to happen.

          • Gustaff

            I wholeheartedly agree. Movies take 2-3 years to make and are only 2 hours long. That’s why I prefer Flash and Arrow. So much longer. So much more time to develop things and the CGI is amazing.

  • Deus Ex Machina

    This is the third female led Marvel TV series. Fourth if you count the upcoming Jessica Jones Netflix series. Explain to me again how Marvel is sexist for never doing anything with a female lead?
