New Comic Book Shows Heading To TV

What a great time it is to be a comic book nerd! Not only are comic book movies dominating the theatres, they are now heading to our television sets. DC has already earned success, with Arrow, which is the most watched show on The CW, and Marvel launched Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., last year, to a tepid response from audiences.

It was obvious that both Marvel, and DC would launch more shows after the success of those two projects, but who would have thought that we’d be seeing the launch of this many comic book projects. DC alone is launching four comic book shows this year, while Marvel has announced the launch of the long rumoured, Agent Carter TV show, and will be releasing Daredevil next year to begin the road to their The Defenders mini series.

I’ll be honest, Ben Affleck wasn’t my first choice to be Batman but he doesn’t make me go, “Why the fuck did they choose him?” All I’ve seen on the internet so far is hate and anger towards him. The people who try to defend him are engulfed by a sea of internet hate. Having a normal debate or conversation about this seems futile. I’m not here to say that Ben Affleck will be the best Batman ever but why not give him a chance. Why not listen to my reasons about why I think Affleck deserves a second chance at playing a superhero and why I think it won’t be like the last time.
