Yet another fail for DC.  Too bad it's not a direct spin off - I Really liked Hartley's GA.

Sounds like next season of Arrow will see the origin of Barry Allen Flash, which will lead to a Flash spin-off TV show on The CW if all goes according to plan.

Pretty big Marvel TV news yesterday with the announcement that Netflix has committed to four series of 13 episodes each for Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones, all leading to a Defenders team up miniseries.  They will start in 2015.

Hmm. That sounds sort of cool, except that none of those people were actually IN the Defenders except Luke Cage. But hey, why split hairs when there's money to be made.  ::)

The other sucky thing about this, besides the fact that I will never see them because they air on Netflx, is that Netflix does not do High Definition.

I literally cannot watch TV that is not in HD anymore.

Pretty much all Netflix streaming is HD.

Check out the press conference about Marvel's upcoming Netflix series The Defenders.  It's set to begin production and will shoot in New York City, where the stories are set.  On hand for the presser were Marvel's Joe Quesada, Disney head Bob Iger and NY state governor Andrew Cuomo.

Is anyone else a big fan of these characters?  The whole Daredevil/Powerman/Iron Fist/Jewel lineup seems really boring to me.  The comics generally have these guys in some offshoot of the Avengers and I just can't get into any of the characters.

They're all Marvel's noir-ish characters.  They're certainly not the spectacle you expect from Avengers.  If they're well-written, these series could prove to be quality viewing.  But quality along the lines of Boardwalk Empire, not Star Wars.

Daredevil has its Kingpin

...and in older news...

Daredevil has its Daredevil

Kingpin - Good actor, not nearly fat enough. They needed someone of Brando-level girth.

The only one of these I care about is Power Man, for the sheer spectacle of seeing how they try to drag that cringe inducing doofus into the 21st century.

Power Man was handled well in the Jessica Jones comics a few years back.
