We all know that superheroes are currently dominating cinemas and consistently breaking box office records, but with a number of Marvel projects on television and coming to Netflix as well as a variety of DC Comics shows kicking off this Autumn and in development, comic books really are are taking over!
Over the next few weeks, Constantine, Gotham and The Flash will all debut, while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow return. Meanwhile, DC are also working on shows starring Supergirl and the Teen Titans.
Joining them now is Lucifer, a series which is being developed by Californication creator Tom Kapinos for Fox (which they have already given a put pilot order to).

Just one day after Fox held their New York premiere for the upcoming series Gotham, which debuts on Monday, September 22, the network has issued a put pilot commitment for another DC adaptation, Lucifer.
Californication creator Tom Kapinos is writing the pilot script, based on the Lucifer character who has appeared in Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics and has also had its own comic spin-off. The story follows the title character, who has grown bored from reigning as the Lord of Hell. He decides to abandon his post and head to Los Angeles, where he opens a piano bar dubbed Lux. The comic book character is inspired by John Milton's Paradise Lost. Mike Carey created the DC/Vertigo spin-off, which ran for 75 issues between 2000 and 2006.
A put pilot commitment almost guarantees that Fox will issue a series order, since the network will have to pay a significant penalty if the pilot episode doesn't air. »
Fox is reportedly making a deal with the Devil.

Less than a week before Fox’s hotly-anticipated “Gotham” premieres, the network has given a put pilot commitment to another DC Comics-inspired property. “Lucifer,” based on the eponymous Vertigo comic of the same name, centers around the Lord of Hell after he grows bored and unhappy with the position, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux.
The order is the latest in a slew of comicbook properties to hit the small screen; last week, it was revealed that TNT is in development on a “Titans” series based on the characters from DC’s “Teen Titans,” with Greg Berlanti also working on a proposed “Supergirl” reboot.

It's official: superheroes are taking over television. TNT is nearing a pilot order for "Teen Titans," a new live-action series centered on the titular DC superhero team, according to Deadline. The project comes from Warner Bros. TV, which already has three other DC Comics series premiering this fall: CW's "The Flash," Fox's "Gotham" and NBC's "Constantine." In addition to the CW's successful "Arrow" (now entering its third season), earlier this week it was also revealed that the studio is developing a live-action "Supergirl" series. Penned by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman ("Fringe," "I Am Legend") and Marc Haimes, "Teen Titans" will revolve around Dick Grayson (a.k.a. Robin) as he takes on a new moniker (Nightwing) and forms a superhero team boasting such characters as Raven and Starfire. The team has already been the subject of a number of animated series, including the currently-running "Teen Titans Go!" on the Cartoon Network. »
