It will be fair to say that Daredevil reinvented itself on Netflix. Directed by Drew Goddard, the series has been a revelation for most fans. Being a part of MCU, the show was a must-watch for Marvel fans. But fans loved the show because of its dramatic flair and adherence to the comics.
The series was one of the most acclaimed productions for MCU. And it is inevitable that fans would have flocked to it, had the series continued. But that must not be a reason for despair. For superhero genre offers plenty of other equally compelling watches. Here is a list of shows that Daredevil fans would love to catch up with.
Barry Allen’s story is nothing new. The speedster has been a part of the Justice League for as long as anyone can remember, which makes The CW rediscovering the character such an achievement. The show focuses on the superhero’s life and strength heavily, from creating an alternate timeline to avenging his mother. The series takes the audience into a topsy-turvy journey, which is thrilling in every step.
Just like Daredevil, marvel fans must also be aware of Iron Fist. The show is a part of the broader MCU and leads to The Defenders series—the nuances of the playset it apart from the others of its types. The series continuously forces the theme of self versus duty. The show was canceled from Netflix prematurely after just two seasons. Which means the series could be streamed in a very short time.
Legends of Tomorrow
Legends of Tomorrow is a part of DCEU. The story sees the unification of a group of superheroes to protect the Earth from Vandal Savage. However, this is not your usual set of heroes. The show is a respite from the dark and gritty tone of the Justice League. And fans seem to agree on that point as the series has been renewed for a sixth season coming next year.
Supergirl has been picked straight off the pages of DC Comics. A cousin to Superman, she is one of the last surviving Kryptonians in existence. Kara is a humble young woman. But when the world faces adversities, she has to step up. The series sees her in her countless adventures with occasional appearances from her biological cousin.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. see Agent Coulson leading from the front. The much-cherished character from Marvel movies, he leads a group of skilled agents to combat extraordinary threats. Airing on ABC, the series is a popular destination for fans because of the multiple easter eggs hidden in the show. The series came to an end this year. With no fear for any spoiler, now is a great time to catch the show.
Arrow made its premiere on The CW in 2012. Being a part of Arrowverse, the show follows the story of Oliver Queen. A billionaire, he returns to his city after being away for five years. Seeing the corruption in his hometown, he bends on serving vigilante justice. The series turned out to be popular with the fans. And also it concluded recently, fans continue to endear Queen-like before.
Directed by Cheo Hodari Coker, the series never fails on the action. Making its debut in 2015, the show is based on the Marvel superhero of the same name. Product of a failed experiment, Cage gains unbreakable skin and super strength because of it. Using his abilities to fight crime, the superhero is a part of MCU.
Another of the Marvel heroes appearing on ABC, Jessica Jones, is perhaps the best of the lot. She is unlike any other heroes on this list, for she uses her powers to tackle crime differently. After retiring from being a superhero, she opens her detective agency to save the world. A story of different tastes, Jessica Jones, is undoubtedly out of the box.
Gotham is a series that fans of Batman are not going to complain about. The show begins after the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne. It does not deal with a grown Bruce, purging the city of its crime. Instead, the show focuses heavily on Gordon and some of Batman’s early villains. The series received much recognition during its five seasons on the air. So there is no chance of going wrong with it.
The show tells the story of Frank Castle. The show lacks the familiar charm of any superhero movie. Instead, its claustrophobic nature keeps the audience always at the edge of their seat. Frank seeks revenge for the death of his wife and children. And plunges as a vigilante into the criminal world of the city.
The superhero genre has been on a surge since 2008. It has managed to earn a popular fanbase through series. That has gifted the world some genuinely brilliant creations. And with no new releases coming soon, now will be an excellent time to watch all of these fantastic shows.
