I like this.
You know what else I like? It seems Marvel and DC are (well trying at least) to out-dick the other in ambitions and plans. You just know that DC will follow suite.
Who wins? Us.
Speedball, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!!!!
Doesn't Disney have a deal with Netflix where their movies will air there first? If so, it could very well be that they deal with them.
wouldn't that count as sodomy? -Neurotic Moose

Any show Marvel gets on ABC has to please the audience that primarily tunes into that network, first and foremost. That basically means older females, which is obviously not the primary audience for comic book superheroes. That's why SHIELD is the weak tea that it is (so far), and why Agent Carter is likely to be their follow-up show. Both shows have potential to be a lot of fun (I'm still giving SHIELD the benefit of the doubt), but they're not full-on, undiluted Marvel. Getting some series away from network television gives Marvel the chance to develop some properties that appeal to the same audience as the comics, and that's pretty exciting.
Could we see a "Marvel Knights" series? Daredevil, Punisher, Cloak and Dagger, and Moon Knight. The mini could then focus on Black Widow, Black Panther or Blade.
Man, a R-rated level Punisher TV series? I would be up for that. I would even love it if A.O.S. had one character reference that "psychopathic walking 2nd amendment" wrecking mayhem in NYC.
I doubt if this goes to Netflix that Marvel will pursue that adult level of content because of their Disney-like mentality of trying to craft entertainment that everybody (i.e. "the whole family") could watch. But who knows? This news took us by surprise.
For that matter, there is no assumption what so ever that these programs would be part of the MCU like A.O.S. is. Think of the upcoming animated film BIG HERO 6 which is based off an obscure Marvel property and going off in its own direction without those strings. Will Marvel do the same here? Maybe.
