    Hulu was going to get it, they changed their minds.


Possibly the Disney influence.

    Here's hoping Netflix gets more comic properties from IDW and Dark Horse and Dynamite.


I can't think of anything important from any of them (except Hellboy) that isn't a licensed property.

    Hmm.....Dynamite did have the Bionic Man comics recently....the bionic man reboot movie I think is postponed...again.

    Perhaps a Netflix Bionic Man series? The Bionic Woman reboot bombed due to the writers strike of that era (did not help the Sarah Connor Chronicles series either), but perhaps Netflix can reboot first the Bionic Man and then Woman?


I loved the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Didn't much care about the Bionic Woman because I feel like we've moved beyond such a concept. Back in the day, the Six Million Dollar Man (and later the Bionic Woman) were the only super-beings on television, aside from Wonder Woman. Nowadays super-beings are ubiquitous, which renders the whole bionic concept a lot less special.

    Not sure I'd want another bionic dog though...


Wait - a bionic dog? Now that I'd watch.


The bionic concept could be brought back.

They could also deal with the pathos of Austin not feeling like he's a man anymore due to his bionics. This was briefly dealt with in the pilot movie that led to his TV series. The other 2 pre series movies didn't show him having this problem, and the series didn't dwell on it much either.


Also a new ROBOCOP TV series might work. Either it continues the 2014 reboot or it is the classic one. Keep the snarky humor, keep the "am I human or not" pathos, and of course keep it on Netflix where violence will NOT be a problem. The 90's TV series was fun despite the toned down violence but still this is a Judge Dredd inspired character and it is a dystopian future. The Robocop Prime Directives mini series was also pretty good until the 4th part, the story dealt with Robocop 10 years later and how he is facing a mid life crisis as it were and if he still has a purpose.

Forever Knight: Netflix could reboot that show.

A New Highlander TV series? Well if it is linked to the previous TV series and fully ignores Highlander 5 the Source, then it would be off to a good start. As Adrian Paul is likely done as Duncan, then perhaps he could show up in it to pass the torch, and his head, to the next Macleod.

Alien vs Predator Netflix series?

A Matrix TV series?

Live action Ghostbusters TV series?

Netflix creates a live action GUYVER TV series? AS long as it ignores the first live action movie.......

Live action Fist of the Northstar TV series? or its prequel Fist of the Blue Sky?

Live action Golgo 13?
