We love our movies based on comic books dearly, don’t we? The AvengersIron ManBatman BeginsThor, and more. However, we also love our DC and Marvel TV series a fair bit too. Shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.ArrowSmallvilleThe Flash and more have become widely popular, for the portrayals of the characters and the stories they tell.

However, in the past, there have been many attempts at making other TV shows as well, using the plots of some of the most famous superheroes. Read on to know more about superhero TV shows that almost became a reality:

Wonder Woman (2011)

Before Gal Gadot was chosen to play the Amazonian warrior queen that is Wonder WomanNBC directed a pilot of the TV show for Wonder Woman with Adrianne Palicki as Diana Prince. The costume was changed significantly for the show, going with the new version of the comics. However, this show never saw the light of day, because NBC pulled out at the last moment.

Aquaman (2006)



Everyone says Aquaman doesn’t get his due. However, in 2006, he was almost going to have his own TV show, starring Ving Rhames and Justin Hartley. However, the show, which was called Mercy Reef, was so far away from the original plot that it had to be cancelled. Thank Atlantis!


The Hulk (2010)

The Hulk is one of the most popular Marvel characters in comic history. After Guillermo del Toro being roped in to make this show, and with Red Hulk as the villain, it was put on hold in order to focus on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. There, there, fanboys.

With The Avengers cashing in at the box office, DC Comics wanted their own superhero team too. However, licensing issues caused the characters of BatmanSuperman and Wonder Woman to be left out. The show had ridiculous portrayals of the FlashAtomFire and Ice and Green Lantern.

Before Marvel made us all giddy with Scarlett Johansson as the buxom Black Widow, there was a TV show made with the kickass agent. Angela Bowie was slated to play the character, but networks and TV studios didn’t pick up the show, since it was too expensive.
