Have you noticed that there are currently a whole lot of superhero TV shows around? Well, of course you have – you seemingly can’t get away from capes and cowls on the small screen at the moment. It’s a fairly even split between Marvel and DC for TV dominance, too – e.g. DC have The CW’s Arrowverse while Marvel have their Netflix shows – but it looks like the House of Ideas will leave their Distinguished Competition far behind in the dust very soon.
As of March 2017, there are an impressive 13 television shows currently in the works that are based on Marvel Comics properties. Many will be part of the expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe, others will be connected to Fox’s X-Men franchise and at least one will be a rogue, standalone player.
Add those shows to the three that are currently on the air – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Legion and the soon-to-arrive Iron Fist – and that’s a pretty substantial number of Marvel TV shows. So, how are you meant to keep track of them all? With this handy guide, of course. Over the next few pages, we’ve compiled the rundown on each new series and why it needs to be on your radar.
