    Network TV is dead with under 30s. Marvel/Disney is a relatively forward thinking company.
    Currently pulling:

    DC: Superman, Justice League, Swamp Thing, Red Lanterns, New Suicide Squad, Earth 2, Grayson

    Marvel: Avengers, New Avengers, She-Hulk, Inhumans, Superior Iron Man, Guardians 3000

    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.

It beats letting someone just do mockbusters of them. USAgent or Thunderstrike would be my first choices. Marvel could knock off itself before anyone else gets them to market!
    Nice. Reminds me of musicians releasing their own "bootlegs" so to take the money back from the "Dutch imports" (i.e. bootleggers.) I like this idea.

    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.

    Netflix, btw, has a deal with Disney for distribution for movies made in 2016 and beyond. They are replacing starz as the premium first run outlet.

    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.

    Not sure if that would work. Unless you are thinking they have the series separate as a brand and then have crossovers here and there. In which case it could work. If they did it as a series called Marvel Knights and it switched between the characters it would fail. Hard.

    See I want to disagree with you. I just don't have the feeling ABC would get behind a program like AGENT CARTER, which is a rougher sell than something like A.O.S.. That's something I could see being part of this package more than going to network series. But I've admitted before my lack of knowledge regarding the TV industry so I'll defer to your knowledge.

    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.
