Marvel Hits the Big Time: The Small Screen

Comic book writer and television producer Jeph Loeb (Heroes, Lost) has been named as Executive Vice President of Marvel’s new television division. Loeb seems a great pick with his experience, and I’d love to see some live action television versions of our favorite comic book heroes. Having come off two big shows that started out fantastic and gradually lost their way, I’d hope Loeb has learned valuable lessons about what to do and not do. And I don’t know if any of you have seen the previews for No Ordinary Family, but it looks like a steaming pile, so I don’t see much competition if Marvel can put out a great show or two.

I can’t be alone in wishing for better than Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, so that’s what I’d love to see. What Marvel character would you want to see serialized?
