As a general rule, the A-list superhero franchises - your Supermans, Wonder Women, X-Men - have been reserved for the big screen in the past two decades, and, given the box office returns, that's understandable. Still, imagine that one of the big properties were given a lavish TV adaptation, a la Game of Thrones or This is Us. (Is that a big-budget network show? Are big-budget network dramas even a thing anymore? I can't recall the last time a scripted network show made a big pop culture footprint. Glee? But, I digress.) Assuming it got a large budget by TV standards, if not an outrageously huge one (as in, several times GoT's cost), what would you most like to see? Some thoughts of mine follow... Superman Pros: It's Superman. Cons: The Metropolis-set Smallville years and Supergirl have gone through a lot of Kryptonian lore lately... and maybe Superman is so inherently iconic he works best in rare big-screen appearances. My Take: Not too promising. Batman Pros: It's Batman. Also, a series could explore many aspects of Gotham apart from Batman. Cons: We just had Gotham, in which Bruce Wayne was a major character, and now we have Batwoman, so... same problem as above, really. My Take: Maybe in five years or so, but the Bat-lore also seems a tad saturated at this point. Wonder Woman Pros: It's Wonder Woman. Also, there's a whole island full of her fellow warriors. Cons: Not sure? See below. My Take: Not being a comics reader, I have no idea what a Diana-centric series would be like. (Neither, it seemed, did that infamous David E. Kelly pilot.) I could definitely see The CW doing a show about a non-Diana Themiscryan in the near future, though. So, no objection here, I guess. X-Men Pros: A series could give all the players episodes and story arcs in which to shine, and help set it apart from the historically long-lasting movie franchise. Cons: Honestly, not really seeing any. My Take: I don't expect Disney to, because Money, but a blockbuster X-Men Disney+ series might just be the ideal way to revive the property. Spider-Man Pros: A series could emphasize the soap opera/everyday challenges of the friendly neighborhood hero. Cons: Any superhero series would be expensive, but one requiring NYC location shooting would be doubly so. Also, urban swinging effects would probably be even pricier than flying and other powers. Finally, we've had a lot of live-action Spider-Men over the years, and Tom Holland's still going strong. My Take: As well-suited as the character and his stories might be to the small screen in theory, the actual obstacles to such a project (even apart from rights issues) would be daunting. Zorro Pros: Everything. Period show? Sure. Dark and twisted present? Why not. Futuristic megacity, or post-apocalypse? Yes and Yes. Cons: Not a damn thing. My Take: MORE ZORRO, PLEASE. ... What say you all?
