Super Hero Hype recently published an article about 9 they think should have their own television series.
Here is their list:
While I agree with their comment about the ability to do this as a procedural drama due to his day-time job as a lawyer, I have to ask, do we really need another law and order style television show? Are the hundreds that are already out there enough? I just can't see the character being able to carry his own TV show, much like I didn't think he would have been enough to carry his own film. And we all saw how that one turned out.
2. Heroes For Hire
Basically a Power Man and Iron Fist show. I can't really see it.
3. Jonah Hex
As much as I'd love to see a TV show made from this character, I can't see how it would work. The movie doesn't seem to have done very well. At least at the box office. Is there really a market for western shows these days? If they made it, I'd watch it.
I'd actually like to see this too. Imagine the story lines that they could tell without the constraints of a 2 hour film. They could tell the stories of Days of Future Past. Or Inferno. Or Age of Apocalypse. Fall of the Mutants. Unfortunately, previous attempts at doing X-related material on the small screen have not done well. Take for instance the Generation X show.
5. Green Lantern
Hmmm....other than as an animated series, which they are already doing, I can't see it happening.
I would love to see this. I would totally watch a TV show based on Deadpool. Although, in all honestly, I can't see how it would work other than as an animated series.
Seriously? Aquaman? Really?
8. The Punisher
I'd like to see them do this character right. Could a TV show do it? The closest they came was when Ray Stevenson played the part in the movie Punisher: War Zone. In my opinion, he was a great representation of the Garth Ennish take on the character.
Lord no. Images of Adam West and Burt Ward just flew through my head. Please don't!!
