Marvel is not yet done with its offerings for the small screen industry, as a number of TV series are still under planning stages and will make their way to fans within the coming years, as revealed by Marvel TV Head Jeph Loeb.
Marvel Studios had its share of several successes in its live-action films from the comic book character of the Marvel Universe, in their own Marvel Cinematic Universethere is “Iron Man,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” the record-breaking film “The Avengers,” “Guardians of The Galaxy,” and many others that followed. Aside from the films, Marvel had a successful venture in the television industrystarting with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” followed by the prequel series “Agent Carter.” Then comes the partnership between Netflix and Marvel, that produced the critically acclaimed “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones,” with two others following leading up to “The Defenders.”
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com during the “Daredevil” season 2 premiere, Loeb revealed that as many series as they have right now, they still have at least 10 or more series.
“It never stops,” Loeb said. “We have, in one way or the other, there’s nine or ten shows that are going. They’re going on in my brain. The idea is, much like when I was doing television and writing comics at the same time, it’s about telling stories, and making sure we are telling the best stories that we can.”
Fortunately, he would not be alone in pulling all these off.
“I’m not there alone, I’ve got people like Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, and Alan Fine at Marvel, incredible showrunners, incredible writers, Jim Chory, who’s my head of production and can make all of these things happen,” he said. “It’s having a team around you to be able to do exactly what you’re saying, which is not just live here, but live ten months in the future and know what we’re doing not just now but a year from now.”
Currently, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is on its third season. “Agent Carter” just finished its second season. “Daredevil” will soon premiere its second season on Netflix. “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” and “The Defenders,” along with a rumored “The Punisher” spinoff will come to Netflix. “Damage Control” and “Most Wanted” will also come to TV.
