Now, with Jeph Loeb in charge, a man who knows his way around Marvel comics, their characters, and television, we can expect television shows hopefully not just based on the X-Men and Spider-Man because for the past decade, it's been reboot after reboot. There's a lot more to the Marvel Universe than mutants and super-powered photographers, and Jeph Loeb is a guy who understand that. He also understands how to make something entertaining whether you agree with what he does or not.

But what can we expect to see? My vote goes for a re-imagining of a character that's gotten the shaft when it comes to television (and movies... ah-hem): Daredevil. One of Marvel's oldest, and most under-rated heroes, Daredevil has never truly had his own television show. Sure, he's appeared on the 90s Amazing Spider-Man cartoon on Fox, and he was in a couple episodes of the live action Incredible Hulk television show, but that's about it. This is a character who would have a great television show, even if it didn't take place in the 616 Marvel Universe.
DareDevil: HunterYears after Matt Murdock, married Karen Page, started a family, and quit masquerading as DareDevil, Murdock is visited by members of the Fisk family looking for information on their father Wilson Fisk, who went into witness protection after testifying against his own son. To protect his arch-rival's life, Murdock denies them the information. He is tortured and beaten, but says nothing. The Fisk gang threatens the life of his family and Murdock caves giving them the information they need and in return, the Fisk gang kills his wife and son, and leave Murdock bloodied and defeated. Murdock has nothing left in his life, and yet he decides to go on a crusade to hunt down the Fisk gang and also save Wilson's life, the one person left that truly knows him. Matt Murdock is dead, but DareDevil is reborn as a hunter.
The show would be dark, gritty, with early noir elements. It would be mildly comparable to a more violent version of Batman: The Animated Series. This could work as both an animated series and a live-action television show.
What about you guys? Throw together a example of a new Marvel based television show. Something YOU would like to see on the air!
