The Marvel vs DC comic book (and now summer movie) rivalry is continuing on the small screen!
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been renewed for a second season, exciting news for fans as ratings have been less reliable than a Hydra double agent lately!
Along with the renewal comes more good news for Marvel- Captain America spinoff Agent Carter has been picked up! We may be a little ways off from a solo female superhero movie (for SOME reason!), but it's nice to see one on TV!
But DC is hitting back with its own new shows! Spinning off from the hit Arrow, CW has picked up The Flash starring sexy speedster Grant Gustin!
And NBC is betting on DC dark horse Constantine! Like Keanu Reeves before him, Criminal Minds star Matt Ryan will battle the forces of evil using whatever dark magic he can get his hands on.
Following the news of the Batman prequel series Gotham's pickup, it looks like a banner year for DC heroes on TV!
But will this second wave of comic book shows give Marvel or DC a better foothold on TV? Either way, right now the fans are winning!
