Default Re: Future TV shows from Marvel?

When I was watching the Shield pilot, I thought: "Ooooh, is this guy Luke Cage." But I did a quick Google search and found nearly as soon as I asked the question that he wasn't.

And while I have no idea where they intend to take the show, I have a bad feeling that - as we've seen historically - ABC will be afraid to show us real superheroes and stick to kind of, sort of superheroes that don't really match what we get in the comics.

Sure, the TV budgets are lower, but I can't see why they can't give us something close to the comic characters. I watched Smallville for several years expecting that we'd actually see Superman at some point, but after a while it became clear that they just wanted to show us Clark.

I'm afraid ABC's intention (and maybe I'm being premature and unfair) will be to follow that model and never really give us what we want. I guess time will tell.
