Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Decide Which Marvel Properties Need Netflix Shows!

6 January 2017 8:32 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Lrm's Fantasy Fridays, where myself and Jeremy Scully- two real-life best friends- pretend to be studio execs by calling some major shots. In the past, we rounded out the cast of Ben Affleck's The Batman, we assigned directors for several major upcoming superhero flicks, and today we set our sights on Marvel and it's wonderful relationship with Netflix. 

See, say what you will about Marvel's exploits on the ABC network like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but their work on Netflix has been undeniably stellar. With shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, which are all leading up towards Iron Fist and a The Defenders crossover event, Marvel Studios has shown that they can make some amazing television with their partners over at Netflix. 

With that in mind, the two of us mused about what other Marvel properties should get the Netflix series treatment. »
