Heroic Hollywood | Top 5 Properties For The Next Phase Of Marvel Netflix

Marvel has a pretty good thing going on with its Netflix television lineup. Daredevil is fantastic, building a world of characters and concepts around Hell’s Kitchen that is fitting of it’s rich source material. Jessica Jones was another standout, anchored particularly by it’s main antagonist, which provided us with one of Marvel’s best villainous turns in either film or TV. Luke Cage was the weakest of the bunch, with a stagnating narrative and a second half of the season which wasn’t as compelling as the first. Still, it did have some good things going for it.

As a whole, the Marvel Netflix landscape is in good health leading into Iron Fist and The Defenders; the culmination of a first ‘phase’, if you will. Marvel Studios is known to have their slate planned out far in advance, and though the television division is a completely different entity, it wouldn’t surprise me if they had some ideas ready to go post-Defenders. A second season of Jessica Jones has been confirmed, another Luke Cage season is more likely to happen than not given its popularity, and a third season of Daredevil will almost definitely happen at some point too. Oh yeah, and there’s a show about this dude named The Punisher coming out in 2017.

So, after these shows give us the TV-Avengers, what else is next? Surely the people running Marvel’s TV branch are thinking of new characters to build shows off of. And it’s not like there is a shortage of them. There are still plenty of street-level characters left that Marvel can utilize in this Netflix storytelling format, characters that can continue to grow this grimy TV playground they have built.

Which ones? Well, that’s why we put together this list. Here are the top 5 Marvel characters that we think should be next on the block to get their own Netflix series.

Just someone who loves film and TV, and likes to write about them.

  • Maxi Iroh

    Only agree with Hawkeye, Blade and Moon Knight.

    Also She-Hulk.

    • Matias Gagliardone

      Exactly the first three in that order, then Shang-Chi and maybe last She-Hulk

  • Vegas82

    Blade, Punisher, Ghost Rider, Hawkeye, and(since I’m dreaming) Venom.

  • Axxell

    I agree with everyone on this list. However I’d like to make a few changes:

    1) I’d like a period Nick Fury series about his rise from spec ops to director of shield.

    2) Blade should be higher priority than Moon Knight

  • Antonio

    Blade, Hawkeye and Ghost Rider would definitely be great. Morbius could be the villain for Blade

  • unpaidpundit

    Whoa! Not a single female character suggested! And I thought “Heroic Hollywood” was politically correct! How about a “Hellcat” show, since I suspect that she is going to be introduced in “The Defenders?” Another good, street level, female character who would makes sense on Netflix is Mockingbird.

  • Bruce Norris

    Just “Spitballing”;

    Ghost Rider (“classic” version)

    Rom the spaceknight(Focus on Dier Wraiths)

    Shang-Chi (“Bruce Lee” style involving story with Fu Manchu & Si-Fan assissins)

    Power Pack

    Isaiah Bradley (Captain America)

    Dazzler(Start her off as singer, quickly shift to life with X-men)

  • Matias Gagliardone

    I hope they merge Luke Cage and Iron Fist into Heroes for Hire, meybe including Colleen Wing and Misty Knight if they don’t get their own series.
    Also I’m dying to see Shang-Chi on Netflix

  • HoodratHankMcCoy

    a nice lack of women in the list Moon Knight would be awesome.

  • HoodratHankMcCoy

    A nice lack of Women in the list. Moon Knight would be awesome though
