Most of them could be made "on the cheap" for 30-50 million bucks, and back in Avi's day, they had originally planned to supplement their big-budget tentpole flicks with these kinds of movies. Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Blade, Punisher, Daredevil, Elektra, Cloak & Dagger, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Mockingbird, Jessica Jones --- all of these are *potentially* part of the Marvel Studios roster, and could easily establish their own "Marvel Knights" imprint that acts primarily outside the circle of the bigger "Avengers Universe."
Yeah, it sounds like Marvel Studios would have to add on quite a few more people to their organization before they could venture into something like that. Apparently MS does a ton of work per person on each and every movie's production, and they're already of putting out more than two movies a year. They may be working towards that, but I think they have to show some sustainability with their current plans before they could do something like that. On the other had, it was their Marvel One-Shots would be perhaps the avenue for street-level heroes like the ones you mentioned. Item 47 was about 12 minutes long was apparently their most ambitious One-Shot yet. Maybe that will expand.
