Just posted this in another thread, but since it's an idea I've never seen before I figured it would be worth creating it's own thread. Lots of discussion and ideas can be fleshed out on this idea. Here is my original post: Just came up with a new idea, one that I think could be amazing... Everyone probably knows about the Agents of Shield TV series that has become a big hit. This seems to be doing very well on it's own, all while expanding the Avengers universe. So, how about a TV series for Amazing Spiderman, that could stand on it's own as well, while expanding the Amazing Spiderman Universe? How about this... A TV show all about... The Daily Bugle! This could be huge! First, the main characters... #1. JJJ. This character would set the tone, which needs to be serious. It can't be like the over the top, almost comical version that was used in the older Spiderman films. They would also be able to delve into how JJJ is so obsessed with proving that Spiderman is a menace. #2. Robbie Robertson. The voice of reason to try to bring JJJ back down to earth. Robbie could be used to have an episode or two about Tombstone (a villain likely never to be in an Amazing Spiderman film. #3. Betty Brant. Not a main character, but someone who can be included and used to flesh out certain stories. At some point it could be explored how her brother was killed when Spiderman and Doc Ock were fighting. We would not need to see the fight, other than on the tv maybe, but the aftermath and how people are affected, would be refreshing. #4. Ned Leeds. It's a paper, and afterall it will need reporters. The fact that Ned and Betty were in a relationsip (and ultimately married) could be explored. Maybe Ned would just be mentioned since in the comics he's frequently overseas. #5. Eddie Brock. One of the Reporters. Not sure if he would be a main character, or just someone noted during conversations. Either way, it could get the GA familiar with him. #6. Reporter. The reporter (and there are many to choose from) would be the main protagonist. He would be the one that the story normally focuses on. Some name options: Connor Austen, Ron Barney, Noel Beckford, Ken Clarke, Peter David, Dan Davis, Nick Dillman, Justin Gray, David Hine, etc. #7. Photographer. The reporters right hand guy/gal (and again, plenty to choose from). Some name options: Cole Cooper, Edwin Edwards, Mike Mayhew, Daniel Morton, Gus Qualen, Tony Reeves, Bill Webb, Sara Williams, etc. #8. There could be a second female reporter, one that possibly uses her fiminine charms to get close to the story, if you get my drift. Maybe she goes undercover sometimes. So, what we would have is a newspaper themed tv series where the main protagonists, through their investigations, are uncovering nefarious situations in the city, all while being hounded by their unfair boss. The crimes being uncovered could lead to some known characters, such as the Kingpin (I know he was used in Daredevil, but he's got to be available to Sony), the Prowler (see, I found a way to use him), Moon Knight, Tombstone, etc. There can even be situations where the reporters find a criminal webbed and waiting, if you get the picture. Peter Parker could be referenced, but would not need to be seen. Would be funny to have him walking out the door (seen from behind) while someone is talking about him, etc. Same with Spiderman. He wouldn't need to be in the show, but would be seen on the front page, in pictures dropped off by Parker, etc. Would love to hear some of the debates between JJJ and Robbie about Spiderman, that could be interrupted by the main characters... There is just so much that could be done! Anyway, what are your thoughts on my idea?
