TV Superheroes

TV superheroes are big business. Shows like Arrow and Daredevil have rejuvenated the genre, making DC and Marvel big busines on the small screen as much as the big. With the Arrowverse delivering its most spectacular crossover yet, Crisis on Infinite Earths in 2020, Disney+ adding small screen adventures such as Wandavision and The Falcon and the Winter Solider to its Phase 4 slate, and innovative classics like Legion and The Umbrella Academy telling very different superhero stories, TV superheroes are here to stay.
