TV Shows: DC orders Constantine, The Flash, and iZombie; Marvel orders Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter

Looks like the comic book wave of TV Shows just got a whole lot bigger... And we have tons to look forward to for the 2014-2015 TV Schedule from properties hailing from the Big Two comic book companies, DC Comics and Marvel!

First off, after the FOX Pre-Batman series "Gotham" got the big news a few days ago and got picked up as a series, NBC has officially announced that the Matt Ryan starring series "Constantine" has also gotten the order, and will see everyone's favorite Hellblazer, con-man, and occult artist defend up from the supernatural and forces from beyond.

Then, The CW has also gotten the official order to turn the "Arrow" spin-off series "The Flash" into a series, with Grant Gustin set-on to become the Scarlet Speedster and run his own set of adventures as a superhero! Another DC/ Vertigo imprint, iZombie, has also received the greenlight, in addition to Arrow of course getting it's third season!

On the Marvel side of things, Agent Phil Coulson and his ragtag team of agents will return for a second season of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.". While the show was struggling with mixed to critical reviews, it has been renewed, and following the changes made after the events of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", it would seem a wise and obvious move by ABC.

Following this, looks like Hayley Atwell will be reprising her role as Agent Peggy Carter once more for the spin-off series "Marvel's Agent Carter", which spins off the first Captain America film and the short "Agent Carter" that was attached to the home video release of "Iron Man 3". This looks promising and should be entertaining to those who want to see more of the female agent and one of the co-founders of S.H.I.E.L.D.
