You’re most likely aware that comic book movies have never been more popular than they are right now. What you probably don’t don’t know is that the big screen isn’t the only place that is being inundated with comic book heroes. The small screens, meaning the Internet and your television, have already started to get their fair share of super hero stories but they’re going to be coming even more fast and furious once 2016 rolls around. It’s gotten to the point that we’ve plumbed the depths of comic book stories so much that we’re now going to be getting quite a few heroes and stories you’ve likely never heard of, unless you’re a big time comic book fan. We’ll have to see how that pans out when all is said and done. Check out our list of the 10 superhero stories that are coming to the small screen and let us know which ones you’re most excited for.
Iron Fist is yet another old school Marvel Comics character from around the same era as Luke Cage. He’ll be getting his own Netflix series next year and will likely have a few tie-ins to both Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, as well as the first Marvel Comics characters that got his own Netflix series in Daredevil. The show is slated for an early 2017 release.
This send off of the old Teen Titans animated series will be airing on TNT, assuming it ever actually gets made. Of the 10 shows on this list, this is the one most likely to die off before it ever airs. Production has been pushed back twice but the creators are still looking to air the series that will focus on Nightwing (once Batman’s Robin) in 2017.
