The Question: Which Marvel Property Should Netflix Adapt Next?
Rumors have circulated over the last few weeks that a Punisher show on Netflix may be on the cards, spinning out of Jon Bernthal's performance in the upcoming second season of Daredevil, while previous rumors suggested that the platform might deliver a Moon Knight show. The first raft of Marvel Netlix shows is less than halfway through launching, and Netflix boss Ted Sarandon has said that further shows are possible, but there are no current plans to do more than a couple of shows a year. 'Phase Two' of Marvel's Netflix plans may be a few years away. But that won't stop us speculating wildly on the shows we'd like to see if the platform does pursue a more aggressive Marvel strategy and move beyond the current line up of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. So in the spirit of wishful thinking, we asked our contributors the question; Which Marvel property would you like to see turned into a Netflix show?

During San Diego Comic-Con Wesley Snipes revealed that he’d had some discussions with Marvel about reviving the Blade franchise now that the rights have reverted back to the studio. It wasn’t long after that a rumor popped up involving a delay in the release of Marvel’s new comic centered on Blade’s daughter, suggesting that Marvel Studios might be working on a project involving that character. And now the Blade rumors continue to flow as Snipes is once again talking about meeting with Marvel, making things seem more optimistic for his return than ever before.

We’ve been hearing rumors about a new Blade movie (or possibly a TV series) for some time now. Marvel Studios now holds the rights to the character, so it’s really up to them to figure out if — and how — they want to bring him back. Wesley Snipes himself recently revealed that he’s met with the studio, but things are “still up in the air.” Maybe they aren’t as up in the air as Snipes said.

You know Blade, right? He's the Daywalker, a vampire hunter with some vampiric abilities of his own. Grew up in a brothel. Hunted Dracula. Hung out with Dr. Strange a lot. Well, rethink all that, because Marvel has announced a new series at San Diego Comic-Con from writer Tim Seeley and artist Logan Faerber, which presents Eric Brooks in a whole new way: through his daughter. That's right, Blade has a daughter, and she'll be a big part of the focus of the new series, as she and her dad will apparently go on some macabre adventures together.

Marvel Studios may not be at Comic-Con 2015, but that’s not keeping some stars from talking up the studio and its potential projects. It’s been 11 years since the release of the disappointing Blade: Trinity, which sent the comic book film franchise out on a sour note, leaving fans hopeful for a more proper send-off for our favorite half-vampire hero. That never happened, but Wesley Snipes is still giving fans hope.

Marvel’s TV universe has long-proven rocky to chart against the cinematic ventures, crossovers often occurring at face value, if at all. Now, a new report suggests that the TV branch may court a larger presence in the next few years, including new series outside of ABC and Netflix, a Doctor Strange crossover with The Defenders, and perhaps even a long-awaited Black Widow project.

The 25 Best Superhero Movies of the Last 25 Years
After selecting the best sci-fi movies of the last 25 years and the best comedies of the last 25 years, ScreenCrush decided the only logical way to wrap up the #CountdownToUltron and Avengers 2 was to choose the best superhero movies of the last 25 years as well. Initially, this was just supposed to be a brief essay. But on an innocent field trip to the world’s most advanced genetics lab, this blog post was bitten by a radioactive list and transformed into the gargantuan piece you see before you. On that day, we all learned a valuable lesson: That with great power must come great listicles.

Greatest Best Favorite Avenger Ever: Group H
With Avengers: Age of Ultron just around the corner, interest in these heroes has never been greater, so we’ve decided to pit all the official comic book Avengers against each other in a battle for your affections. Who is the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time? Only you can decide. We’ve created voting groups that mix up different eras of Avengers membership. Group H includes a couple of captains, some ex-villains (including a Doom?), a Jack and a knight, and one of Magneto's kids (don't believe the retcons). The top two or three Avengers from each group will go through to the next round, so vote tactically. Or just vote for Carol. We're pretty sure you're going to vote for Carol.

One of the things I've never been able to understand about comics is why Blade has never been able to hold down an ongoing series. I mean, he the character who provided Marvel with its first-ever big-screen success, but he's a badass who chops up draculas with katanas, and really, that should be the easiest formula to sell to anyone. And yet, it hasn't happened, despite multiple attempts since the first Blade movie became a hit in 1998. Maybe it's because they haven't given Ron Wimberly a shot yet.

If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there's no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we're taking it upon ourselves to compile lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics. This week, we're taking a look at the House of Ideas and the people who dedicate their superheroic careers to battling against the supernatural as we bring you Marvel's Top Five Horror Heroes!
