Marvel Studios has been enjoying an immense amount of success on the television, film, and streaming front. In fact, Marvel TV shows seem to be just getting off the ground as we approach the middle of 2017. Marvel keeps finding new and unique ways to bring characters to life and get quality people to play them. In the recent past, Marvel has announced so many new shows that we thought it would be helpful if there were a guide, so to speak, that folks could use as a way to find out more about each show.
In addition to the information provided in this outline, you can also click on the series’ titles for more news. Below we’ve covered the main information about the show, release date, casting, known synopsis, and any other trinkets we were able to uncover. This guide will cover shows that are set to premiere soon. Properties already on ABC and FX will not be included in this list, nor will the upcoming shows for Netflix. They will have their own buildup and entries. So, let’s get started and we will be going alphabetically.
