Many comic book fans have been kept all cozy and warm through the winter months thanks to television offerings like Gotham on Fox, The Flash and Arrow on WB, The Walking Dead on AMC, and Agents of SHIELD on ABC. While some of us squealed with glee in the at the very thought of Barry Allen and Iris looking lovingly into each other’s eyes, others moan and groan at how Arrow is too much like Batman. However, this year we’re stoaked to have been blessed with the new Daredevil series from Netflix starring Charles Cox as Matt Murdock. If you don’t know who Matt Murdock is then you’re most certainly reading the wrong column, homie. Check out a few trailers of this gritty, noir-esque superhero series from Netflix and maybe that’ll help jog your memory.
If that one didn’t tickle your fancy for comic book inspired mayhem then perhaps will peak your interests.
You can’t front on the sheer badass-edness of the trailers. But that’s not all that’s about to jump off on the small screen. Netflix will as be forming its own superteam with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist scheduled to get their own shows in the coming months as well.
Additionally, The CW’s iZombie, which is based on the DC Comic of the same name, debuted last month and has been garnering rave reviews for star Rose McIver and the show’s storyline as well. Although the TV series departs from the material from the Vertigo/DC offering.
In addition to those series, there are rumors of a Supergirl offering being in development, an X-Men title and even a Teen Titans joint as well. Not to mention the fact that AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead will drop this summer as well. TSL Comic Book Convo will most certainly keep you abreast of those situations. As it stands, TNT, Fox, Cinemax and HBO are trying to get in on the comic book thing. Eventually, we’ll get tired of it. But we’re all in for now.
While we’re on the subject of being all in, most fans of Deadpool were not all in on Ryan Reynolds being selected as Marvel’s Merc with the Mouth after his less than stellar performance as Green Lantern. But some folks are changing their mind after getting a glimpse at these scintillating teaser of Reynolds in full Deadpool gear.
We’re about as psyched as the next Blerd as far as Deadpool and its potential are concerned, but that’s not going to be in theaters until early 2016. The film that we’ve salivating over for the past 2 years is less than a month away. That's right! We’re all really just waiting for the comic book related spring-summer blockbusters like Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Fantastic Four, Ant-Man and Fantastic Four to light up the big screen. But, at the end of the day, we’re all really just waiting for the comic book related spring-summer blockbusters like Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Fantastic Four, Ant-Man and Fantastic Four to light up the big screen.
