    Finally! My favourite Marvel character gets a series. He's the ideal character for a dark Batmanesque imagining. A slightly more adult Arrow, then. Hopefully it's as good as Arrow, too.

    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ratings tumbling, and four more series on the way: is this is the super-bubble bursting?

    Or just showing that what audiences want from superheroes can't be provided on TV budgets?

  • I think people want something other than what Agents of SHIELD offers. Arrow and Smallville both clearly show that you can still do a superhero show on TV and people will watch it – at least on The CW. Agents of SHIELD is pretty mediocre stuff though, which is why the audience is dropping off, I think. That and the lack of superheroes in it

  • Gareth Williams

    Agreed. You can't judge an audience's appetite for comic book film and TV based on one lackluster series. Ghost Rider II is awful, but it didn't stop people going to see the Avengers. SHIELD suffers from being an inferior version of Alphas! Imagine that.

    My hopes for Daredevil rest with the fact that, like Arrow, it should be a series based somewhat in reality and should have a number of pretty decent villains; no, not Stiltman.

    There's going to be a Spooks *film*. Oh my. That's just bizarre. The show barely hobbled over the finish-line as it was, and boasted a cynical and bitter ending (and almost matched Waking the Dead in terms of stupid). A big-screen outing is baffling.

  • I think The InBetweeners movie has made lots of TV companies think they can be successful in the cinemas, too, now. There'll be more, I promise you.

  • Hopefully they'll cast a decent Elektra as well.
