Ohh, the drama!
On the CW, Peter would still get his powers but then not want to deal with the great responsibility, and instead spend the whole time angst-filled and pining over Mary Jane while ignoring Gwen Stacy.

But someone who was bit by a radioactive spider is the only one that can stop a madman who was bit by a radioactive mantis. And a guy who was bit by a radioactive pig. And a guy who was bit by a radioactive pigeon. And a guy who was bit by a radioactive venus flytrap...

If it stars Olivia Munn as Diana, I'd tune in to watch!

I know the thread has no gone down the "funny" path, but I was dead serious.

Starman: Jack Knight (Defender of Opal City)Seriously, who here wouldn't want to see "The Shade" in live-action?

Based on the comics run, it would be epic.

Sub-Mariner or Doctor Strange. Either would have prohibitive SFX budgets.

Re: Replacing Smallville...

I beg to differ What about a post Ironman movie based series having Tony combat not only armored foes,but business rivals that try ruin Stark Industries it could lead into a Live action Avengers series as spin off. Cameos by Sam Jackson as Nick Fury.

I could get into an X Men prequel series showing formation of the School for gifted children to how did Professor X get into his famous wheelchair.
Yes I did watch Wolverine X Men Origins on demand,and saw Professor X standing on his two feet.
As to a real network ,running a series like the Marvel live action ones SyFy comes to mind. DC will stick, with CW because of the current track record with Smallville.

Thats my two cents

Signed

I could see a Starman as well although way to mentally challenging for todays viewers.

The Question also has solid potential for a series. Be it a male or female version.

Why won't they allow a live action Batman series? It would be a money maker (presumably) for them, and I can't see a studio turning down a chance to make money.

Hey! The episode where he breaks his pencil during his final exam would be intense!
Yep. A "Very Special Episode".

I'd love to see a well done live action Batman TV series, so the CW obviously can't touch such an idea, lol.

It is part of the whole "Bat-Embargo" since the Nolan film series is, presumably, still going.

Because they figure they'll make more money with the Nolan film series, and any dodgy television show (because, let's face it, this is the CW) will only harm the brand (and potential box office).

^ The two above me are the reason. It's also why you won't see Batman related characters on Smallville.

Re: Replacing Smallville...

I wouldn't mind seeing a Justin Hartley Green Arrow series, I can see the upcoming episode featuring Speedy (Mia) setting up a spin off. We have also discussed before the possibility of a Legion of Superheroes spin off as well. Although I think it could have the problem of easily being the CW's most expensive series, the characters fit their demographic and their motto of airing shows to a young and "kewl" audience. I would establish a pilot featuring Rokk, Imra, and Garth and then add three more core members including Brainiac 13.

Christopher's suggestion of Tales of Asgard (Marvel is doing a animated series with a young Thor btw Chris in 2011 called Thor: Tales of Asgard) reminds me of Young Hercules starring Ryan Gosling.
