Marvel has seen tremendous success at the box office with their Avengers franchise and the films from the individual members of the Avengers team. They have also been breaking into television with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” doing well on ABC. Zeca Oliveria has read that they are expanding on Netflix in a big way with several series planned for this popular streaming service. Marvel is not the only comics franchise going from the big screen to television, however.
DC Comics is letting people know they are still in the superhero business with their Dark Knight films and more recently “Man of Steel.” Fans await next years “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” with eager anticipation. In addition to their successes and future plans at the theater, they are also expanding to the small screen as well. Cast photos have recently come out for the new series “Supergirl” coming to CBS this October. CBS apparently wants it to succeed badly as it will debut in the time slot immediately following the extremely successful sitcom “The Big Bang Theory.”“Supergirl” will be joining “Gotham” and “The Flash” to shore up DC Comics presence on television as they continue to crank out more adventures on the big screen to remind moviegoers that they have some pretty impressive names in the universe of superheros.
