At What Point Is Marvel Going Too Far?

With the recent Success of shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, another announcement has recently been made that has Marvel fans both squee-ing and cringing. In conjunction with Netflix, Marvel is developing  four new Super Hero series to have 13 episode runs using the streaming only medium. These heroes are Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.


While this is an exciting step for many fans, should we be concerned about the possibility of Marvel reaching a critical mass on the small screen? With the Avengers spin-off series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. meeting mixed reviews on ABC (I have voiced some of my on concerns), is there a possibility that we could be getting too much of a good thing? I for one am loving the fact that the heroes and icons of my youth are coming to life on screens both big and small, but not everyone feels this way.  I am already hearing rumblings from friends and strangers alike that they are getting tired of super heroes being the subject of more and more movies and TV shows.

What do you think? Are you excited to see these shows? If so are theses the heroes you want to see? Or is Marvel making a faux pas in flooding the market with new comic book property adaptations?  Let us know in the comments below. In the meantime check out what the people over at Hit Fix had to say in this video:

    2much. Especially with not keeping with the origins of the characters. Most comic book people dislike the big screen versions, I am one of them. they are watered down and and not true to the actual comic it is referencing.
