Marvel Currently Has Nine To Ten Television Series In Various Stages Of Development

Marvel-new-logo-1940x811Are you ready for even more Marvel characters coming to your television screen? Well, from the sounds of things, you can definitely expect it. While speaking with ComicBook at the premiere for Daredevil season two, Head of Marvel Televsion Jeph Loeb, revealed that he’s got some busy years ahead.

It never stops. 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.

But luckily for Loeb, he’s not handling this all alone as he’s got people such as Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, and Alan Fine by his side as well as “incredible showrunners, incredible writers, Jim Chory, who’s my head of production and can make all of these things happen.” Loeb additionally added the following on the matter.

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.

So, if Loeb isn’t talking about the shows already on air, what could some of the other projects in development be? Other than the obvious ones that we know such as Damage Control, Most Wanted and Iron Fist, John Ridley’s mystery project and the rumored second comedy. There is quite a number of properties that Marvel has that are definitely better suited for the small screen than the big one. One potential property that could be among the ones in development might be Cloak & Dagger. The studio actually had plans for the duo to have their own TV series but the project just seemed to fall off the map.

Now while I can’t confirm that this is indeed one of them, I did recently hear that the project was back in development again over at  Marvel. Here’s hoping that rumor turns out to be legit because that could potentially be a very cool project for the small screen. We’ve also heard rumors quite recently that they have a Moon Knight series in development as well as a spin-off for The Punisher. What properties would you like to see Marvel Studios bring to the small screen? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.

Writer of words. Eater of pie. Drinker of coffee. Destroyer of worlds. Uh...yeah. Other opinions on this site are definitely not mine.

  • As long as they’re good like Agent Carter, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones, and you know, not complete garbage like SHIELD, I think we’ll all be happy.

  • Tim Lydon

    I’m assuming some of the ‘in development ones’ are already announced, so I’m guessing its
    Cloak and Dagger
    John Ridley’s thing
    Iron Fist
    Defenders
    Moon Knight
    Punisher
    Most Wanted
    Damage Control
    The Second Comedy

    LMAO, I don’t think people actually read what Loeb said.

    “They’re going on in my brain.”

    That’s not the same as actually being in development. He’s hyping people up for no reason. Half of those shows will never see the light of day.

    • Vegas82

      They currently have 8 known shows going.

      • SAMURAI36

        So? That has nothing to do with shows in development.

        • Vegas82

          He doesn’t say development. He says going in one way or another.

          • SAMURAI36

            “In one way or another” implies “in development”. You can’t include shows that are already on the air, or confirmed to about to be on the air.

          • Vegas82

            If you say so. To me that means eiter in dev or on air.

          • SAMURAI36

            That’s like saying Flash and Arrow are in development.

            But none of this means anything, against my original point.

            He clearly said “going on in my brain”. That means A) the shows are clearly not on the air, and B) they’re far from being in development either.

          • Math

            “in one way or the other, there’s nine or ten shows that are going”… How does that not include shows who are on the air? Shows on the air are still being developed. There is still a lot of work to be done on these shows, lots of stories being written, forthcoming seasons to be planned. Flash and Arrow are in development too. I don’t see why a show that’s on the air ain’t considered being in development.

          • Vegas82

            Here’s the problem. You’re putting words into Jeph Loeb’s mouth that never came from it. Until you stop doing that your point is invalid.

          • SAMURAI36

            What words did I put in his mouth? I quoted what he said verbatim.

  • Vegas82

    Agents of Shield, Agent Carter, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Defenders, Damage Control make 8.

    • Shawn Micheal Madden

      None of those series are considered “in development” other than the last three.

      • Math

        “in one way or the other, there’s nine or ten shows that are going”… I never read “in development”. Even if he did say that, how does that not include shows who are on the air? Shows on the air are still being developed. There is still a lot of work to be done on these shows, lots of stories being written, forthcoming seasons to be planned. I don’t see why a show that’s on the air ain’t considered being in development.

        • Shawn Micheal Madden

          Apolgies. Been a long day and all the comments jumbled together in my head. Was reading the section below and…

          I need a nap. Haha.

          • Math

            No need to apologize. Enjoy your nap.

        • SAMURAI36

          …”In my head”. That’s the key statement here.

          A show that’s in development isn’t just in his head.

          • Math

            Obviously your anti-Marvel brain is looking for loopholes and hidden meanings to discredit whatever he is saying. You see one word and you build this entire story up in your head and then parade it as fact.

            The real words he used btw was “in my brain”, but either way, he’s just saying that he’s constantly thinking of where these shows are heading. I never read it as “I have ideas of new shows I’d like to produce if I can work them out in my head” and more like “9 or 10 shows going on simultaneously is a lot of planning, a lot to do, a lot to think about so I’m always thinking about them, about where to go next with these characters, where to push their stories, etc.” and that’s what I believe he meant by it. It makes sense. 9 or 10 shows is a lot of work for one man to oversee. I would have all these shows on my mind as well if I was the one tasked to overview all of them.

            It’s not meant as thinking about possibilities for new shows, but more about how working on so many shows mean you constantly have all these shows on your mind. He’s not hyping people for no reason. He’s not wasting time thinking about potential new shows that will never see the light of day. He’s focusing on all these shows that are currently running and obviously that takes up a lot of time and space in his mind. It’s not a deceitful quote for the pleasure of creating false buzz. Only someone with a biased view like yours can so badly misinterpret what he meant by that one small part of his quote.

    • Chris W

      I’m pretty sure Carter is cancelled.

      • Axxell

        Is it?

      • Dasoman

        Officially, not yet. I’d be surprised if it gets renewed, though.

        • phnxgrl

          It might since it fills a hole in scheduling between return from Christmas to beginning of Spring season. Anything they replace it would be give the same or worse ratings. Besides Agent Carter is in house and done on the cheap. So the ratings do not matter.

          • Dasoman

            Ratings ALWAYS matter. They are the main reason a show gets renewed or cancel. And the whole you mention could easily be filled with Marvel’s Most Wanted if they don’t trust it with a full season order.

            Besides, ABC has already announced the renewal of a bunch of shows and Agent Carter is not one of them. Its future doesn’t look promising.

          • phnxgrl

            Actually Ratings are not that important anymore there are plenty of ways the Networks make money now. Even if it is to keep interest in their other Marvel properties. TV shows could be used now as a part of that marketing. So removing that might not be in ABC/ Disney’s best interests.

  • Larry

    This title is misleading. Jeph Loeb has nothing to do with Marvel Studios. And outside Agent Carter, Marvel Studios has nothing to to with any Marvel television projects. Why is it so hard to differentiate the difference between Marvel Studios and Marvel television? The title should read “Marvel Television Currently Has Nine or Ten Projects In Various Stages Of Development”. Someone not clued in probably is thinking Marvel Studios is behind everything behind Marvel television releases and that isn’t true.

    • Shawn Micheal Madden

      Actually didn’t realize that I had done that as I wrote this up. It wasn’t supposed to be there. As you can see, I never say Marvel Studios in the article but made a mistake in the headline. Been a long day.

    • SAMURAI36

      That’s not the only thing that’s misleading here.

    • SgtMAD

      you are wrong,all you have to do is watch the end credits to see it in all the marvel shows, they are involved in every show bearing their imprint

  • theheartsleeves

    “there’s nine or ten shows that are going.” are we sure “going” = “in development”?

    There are nine known shows going that we know of.

    DareDevil
    Jessica Jones
    Luke Cage
    Iron Fist
    The Defenders
    Damage Control
    Agent Carter
    Agents of Shield
    Most Wanted

  • unpaidpundit

    Aren’t Cloak and Dagger mutants? If they are, I don’t think Marvel can use them.

    • Shawn Micheal Madden

      Nope. They may have ties to the X-Men but definitely not mutants. And as stated, they were already developing a series back in 2011 alongside Jessica Jones and Del Toro’s Hulk.

      • capwulf

        Nope they were retconned to be mutants. Bit since they began as non mutants maybe they are ok to use.

        • Shawn Micheal Madden

          When did this “retcon” occur?

          • Their second series was called “The Mutant Misadventures of Cloak & Dagger” back in the early 90s.

          • Shawn Micheal Madden

            Which was always a misleading title. Their origin has remained intact. While their powers do come from the activation of their latent X-gene, it’s a drug that activates it thus not technically mutants.

    I’d like to see Ghost Rider, Darkhawk, Moon Knight, the New Warriors or the Star Jammers. Fox might have the rights to that last one though.
