ABC & Marvel Developing Titles

It seems that ABC is taking a stab at throwing its hat into the ring of more super hero type shows. Specifically, from Marvel. One of the primary titles they’re thinking about is Hulk… though othe titles on the list of potential titles include the following from the Marvel inventory:

  • Hulk,
  • Cloak and Dagger,
  • Heroes for Hire (Luke Cage);
  • The Eternals (Super powered beings living amongst humanity);
  • Agents of Atlas,
  • Alter Ego (private investigator takes on cases involving superhumans);
  • Moon Knight,
  • the Red Hood (a low-rent criminal discovers a cloak that gives him superpowers);
  • Ka-Zar (a Tarzan-type man and his saber-toothed tiger);
  • Daughters of the Dragon (a dynamic female duo with their own super talents open a private-detective agency); and
  • The Punisher (one man wages a war on crime).

This is just a list of ideas and Marvel wants to take it slow and develop a title or two at a time with their focuses first being on what looks like Hulk and Cloak and Dagger. Of the list of other shows, Punisher has been done again and again. I’m not sure anyone would willingly accept it again.

Heroes for Hire could be pulled off if it’s reimagined properly… and I wouldn’t mind a Moon Knight series, but those kinds of shows don’t always grab any traction with viewers.

We’ll just have to wait and see what comes of this list.
