Replacing Smallville...

After Smallville is over would you want to see another before they were a superhero tv series? I watched the Aquaman pilot with Justin Hartly and thought it was pretty good. Which superhero origin would you want to see???

I personally would love to see an Astro City tv series

Origin though...One of the Legionaires from LoSH.

I'd like to see that Young Bruce Wayne series the producers were planning before they made Smallville.

Maybe a Tales of Asgard series with a young Thor (the hero), Sif (the girlfriend), Balder (the best friend/half-brother), and Loki (the nemesis/adoptive brother). You'd have Odin and Frigga there too as the parents. And you could slowly touch on various aspects of Aesir myth for a wealth of story ideas.

Re: Replacing Smallville...

I think most superheroes before they become superheroes aren't very interesting. I'd rather see superhero shows that aren't ashamed of being superhero shows.

I mean, I would've been interested to see that young Bruce Wayne series instead of Smallville. And I could see the same approach being used for, say, the story of young Princess Diana of Themiscyra being sent to live in Patriarch's World and learn its ways. But Smallville's given us nine years' worth of "before the cape" storytelling. Why should another show copy the same format? Wouldn't it be better to try something different?

According to Warner Brothers they will never authorize a live action Batman television show. I remember reading that they were pissed when he was shown for five seconds on Birds of Prey and when Alfred called him on the phone in the final scene of the series finale.

Watch how a teenage Optimus Prime and Megatron go from best friends to bitter rivals to sworn enemies. Optimus will always be wearing clothing with various shades of red and blue and Megatron will have a fetish for guns.

They won't be able to transform during the series (although, there will be several tongue-in-cheek references to it).

There will be a love triangle involving Arcee, and their main hangout will be a bar called "The Ark".

Smallville should be replaced by Gotham County--tales from Gotham City's suburbs where a young Bruce Wayne befriends a likeable (but privately troubled) young man who will eventually become the Joker...

Yes, I am being perfectly not serious.

Folks, this is the CW.

Wonder Girl: The High School Years. Young, idealistic, and bosomy, Diana Prince bounces from town to town, fighting nastiness in (private and wealthy) high school cliques.

Why would anyone want another CW-ized superhero show? You already know how it's going to turn out. It'd be different if the show were on a real network.

What the world desperately needs is a new show about the early years of Wolverine before he becomes an X-Man or before he loses his memory even. Show him become an asshole throughout it's ten year run but never on screen let him get is metal endoskeleton.
Oh and let him meet a young but mysterious College student Charles Xavier who keeps a secret.

How about Peter Parker: The High School Years? Follow the adventures of nerd, weakling, and social outcast Peter Parker as he... umm... studies, doesn't get invited to parties, dotes on his elderly aunt and uncle, worships Liz Allan from afar but gets nowhere with her, and does nothing even remotely heroic or dangerous. Ohh, the drama!

Or Barry Allen before the lightning bolt -- the adventures of an ordinary crime lab scientist who's always late for everything!

Diana before Wonder Woman -- every week, she works out, rides horses, reads ancient scrolls, hangs out with her Amazon sisters, and enjoys the unbroken peace and tranquillity of Themiscyra, facing no peril of any kind! (Although if you threw in some lesbian romance and a lot of bathing scenes, that might work...)

Hey! The episode where he breaks his pencil during his final exam would be intense!

I could see a Wolverine Origin Story™. Because we haven't had enough of that!

Re: Replacing Smallville...

A live action X-Men series focusing on Xavier starting his school and finding and training the first X-Men would be outstanding. And later seasons would evolve and expand the show into more classic X-Men stories.

It could be the show that Heroes should have tried to be.
