10 Best Comic Book TV Shows Never Made

Smallville style Aquaman? Count us in!

Over the last ten years, comic book films have become more relevant than ever in the movie industry. The MCU currently enjoys the lion's share of the box office - however with the success of Joker, and The Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman 1984, and The Batman coming up, DC are getting serious about catching up.

While the biggest pay checks naturally come with the movies, the small screen side of these franchises are just as important. The Netflix corner and the Disney+ side of the MCU, and DC's Arrowverse have grown to enjoy strong fan bases over the years, but there are a lot of potential shows that we just didn't get to see.

From character spin-offs, lesser known properties, and reimagined versions of comic book royalty, there has been no shortage of incredible ideas put forward for TV. However, just like in the movies, some of these wonderful projects end up never seeing their adoring audiences.

Over recent years we have been spoiled by comic book TV adaptations, but it hasn't always been this way. For every Daredevil, Arrow, or Umbrella Academy, there is something that could have been just as good left behind.
