As big as the superhero renaissance is at the movie theater, TV is at the very least matching it. In fact, it’s probably beating it.

At least ten superhero shows are either currently on the air, coming soon, or recently finished including Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Supergirl, and Constantine. And that doesn’t even count the upcoming Flash/Arrow spin-off, a potential Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D spin-off, the other Marvel Netflix shows and many more.
