5 Potential Marvel TV Shows To Rival HBO’s ‘Watchmen’
With news breaking that Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of both Lost and The Leftovers, is in talks to develop a Watchmen show for HBO, Marvel needs a new TV hit. Don’t get me wrong, I know Agents of Shield still has a huge following, but I stopped watching the Netflix shows during the second season of Daredevil. And FX’s Legion was just… okay for me. It’s not that I don’t love Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, but it’s not fair to put lower-tier characters like them in competition with a juggernaut like Watchmen.
HBO was clearly taking notes when Netflix started releasing their shows, so this seems like a great moment for Marvel to take some notes on their competition. If DC is going to churn out a Watchmen series, then Marvel needs to dig deep into their libraries to find stories worthy of being brought to the silver screen.
So hit Next to find out about five properties Marvel should consider adapting if they want to match HBO’s Watchmen.
