Considering that DC's roster of comic heroes includes two of the greatest to ever grace the page—Batman and Superman—Marvel's recent box office dominance is almost hard to fathom. But one Marvel exec thinks he's figured out why they're "light years" ahead of DC when it comes to the big screen.
ABC is getting into the Marvel business in a big way and one of the series they're developing—alongside Guillermo del Toro's Hulk—is A.K.A. Jessica Jones, based on Brian Michael Bendis' stunning Alias. And it'll take place firmly within the universe established by Iron Man, Captain America and Thor.
When the news broke that Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's long-running comic Powers might get a shot at TV, readers and comics geeks were thrilled. Now, Powers is one step closer to being a reality, and one step closer to landing one heck of a leading lady.
