Marvel Leaves DC Comics in the Dust

While fans are still processing (and hopefully celebrating) the news of a new Ms. Marvel in town, a 16-year-old Muslim girl from New Jersey, Marvel dropped another major announcement today: They’re teaming up with Netflix to create a four-series epic and a mini-series! 

According to Marvel’s official website, the series will be

focused on “Daredevil,” followed by “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage,” the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen, New York.  Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel’s “The Defenders” mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Personally, even though I’m not a big Marvel fan outside of the movies, I am thrilled by the news. I’m particularly excited about “Jessica Jones” since I’ve heard only good things about the character from friends. Plus we always need more female-led shows. A fact that DC Comics doesn’t seem to get for some reason. 

Amidst the ground-breaking announcements from Marvel for the past two days, DC had news of its own: A new show is being developed by the CW based on…drumroll please…Hourman! Now a lot of you may be asking, “WHO?”. Seriously, DC, Hourman? Why not make your next show about Plastic Man? That’s a great idea. Meanwhile, the Wonder Woman property is left on the shelves once again. Not to mention the tons of other more interesting characters that are more deserving of their own shows like Zatanna for example. A real magician masquerading as a stage magician, solving mysteries of the supernatural and the occult. Doesn’t that read much better than a guy who gets powers for one hour at a time?!
