based a comic book from Image comics, 2004, it focuses on two detectives solving superhero related murders, in a world where super POWERS are part of every day life. releases Dec 2014. Sony PlayStation Network (that’s a thing. it’s a streaming service like Netflix, but only accessible through a Sony Playstation).
DareDevil. (also to include the other Defenders: Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist. Deborah Ann Woll (‘Jessica’ from True Blood), will star as Karen Page, Matt Murdock’s/DareDevil’s girlfriend. Rosario Dawson to star as Elektra, Elektra in her villain phase. looking forward to this. it airs on Netflix so hopping we can binge watch just like House of Cards.) Netflix
Agent Carter. (so..remember Captain America’s girlfriend from the first Captain America movie? well her name is Peggy Carter and she has her own comic book series, ‘Agent Carter.’ the reason she was featured in ‘Captain America: the Winter Soldier’ movie, was this series, airing winter 2015. did you ever see the 15min ‘Agent Carter’ short, called ‘Marvel One Shots,’ on the ‘Iron Man 3’ dvd? well that was essentially the pilot episode, so Zodiac is the villain. the series will cover the formation of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is why Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be taking a break mid season for this 8 episode run. the series will cover elements from the comic, have a female, empowered protagonist, Peggy Carter, important in today’s world, and supposedly will hint at Hydra surviving after the movie demise of Red Skull. Howard Stark, Tony Stark’s (Iron Man) father will also be a part of the cast.) ABC
iZombie (based on the comic of the same name. she’s a zombie that needs to eat brains to survive, hence the job at the morgue, but after she feeds, she absorbs all the screaming memories of the deceased, like in ‘Warm Bodies,’ which she then uses to solve the victim’s murder; sound familiar? still looking forward to it.) CW
12 monkeys. like the 1995 Bruce Willis, Madeline Stowe movie. January 2015. SyFy.
Upcoming for Sci-Fi television, still in development:
Minority Report: 10 years Later. Fox
New Angeles (a virtual reality world staring Keanu Reeves. so it’s the Matrix ? well.. not Wachowski Bros or Matrix franchise, but may be immersive like Existenz. make it action-style cool, not like Caprica’s ‘V World.’)
Titans (‘Teen Titans’ most likely to include: Beast Boy aka Changeling, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven, Nightwing, Kid Flash & Wonder Girl. still in development. hoping for 2015). TNT
Walking Dead Spin-off (not too many details have been released, not even the official name, but we do know it will cover different areas of the zombie apocalypse, giving us a larger picture of what happened & what is currently going on; similar to the book World War Z. the movie depicted Brad Pitt traveling the world trying to figure out what happened & the origin of the outbreak, but the book was a compilation of over 20 different stories, narrated by each individual, depicting their story & their attempts to find a cure; a great concept for story telling, but would not have translated into cinema. Robert Kirkman, the creator of the original Walking Dead comic & co-writer/influencer for the Walking Dead tv show and the writers for the Walking Dead will be helming the spin-off. releases in 2015). AMC
Supergirl (still in development, well Warner Bros is still trying to sell it to a network. the CW refused, so we’ll see. hoping it will air fall 2015) update: Supergirl will air on CBS.
X-Men (in “deep development”) according to sources at Bleeding Cool, Fox is considering an X-Men TV series! it is still “deep in development.” which probably means 2016. Since Fox still owns the rights to ‘X-Men’ and even the word ‘mutant,’ and considering their new superhero success with Gotham, it only seems fitting that they will bring X-Men to the small screen. the potential could be amazing, since Fox produces the X-Men movies. there could be all kinds of movie-tv crossovers just like what Marvel did with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America : the Winter Soldier. i’m really excited about this, make it happen Fox.
