Just watched Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the one thing I have to say is…STOP MAKING SUPERHERO BASED SHOWS WITHOUT SUPERHEROES!!! Marvel had it all going good with their current movie franchise. Marvel Studios had a grand plan, that everyone in Hollywood said they were crazy to attempt. Merging and crossing over all their single hero movies into the mega blockbuster release “The Avengers”. Guess what? They succeeded…boy did they succeed! So much so that Fox has hinted that their up coming Fantastic Four film and current X-Men franchise will eventually cross pollinate in a shared Universe. Now granted this is just a view of the first episode of Agents…but if they abandon this most successful endeavor that has been such a major hit for them, and start going with the “We’re not going to show any Marvel Heroes” , then this series is DOOMED faster than you can say Latveria…get what I did their!
The problem seems to stem from the fact that Marvel and the other producers on the show (Avengers director Joss Whedon and brother Jed and his wife Maurissa Tancharoen) seem to have gotten stuck on this “We’ll create a superhero based show with no actual Marvel Superheroes) I don’t understand this concept that movie studios have in creating shows based on superhero tentpoles and then saying “well we’re not going to use any actual superheroes”. Fox just announced a full season pick up of the show GOTHAM, featuring a young James Gordon and a vast array of Gotham’s famous villains but ummm, no Batman…Huh?) Marvel is known to have a vast library of characters in the Marvel Universe. B level, C level and even D level characters that would be great for this show. Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Cloak and Dagger, Carol Danvers, Wonder Man…on and on and on. If they do not utilize this opportunity for that cause and try to do the whole misfit “HEROES” motif that eventually went on to sink that promising show from some years ago…then it will be one and done for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. And Agent Coulson will have to yet come back from the dead!
