Netflix is already home to some of the most popular superhero content anywhere, with a growing list of Marvel properties that have captured the attention of an increasingly devoted fan base. Here, ComiConverse takes a look at what the next moves might be in the Netflix/Marvel partnership.
Netflix: What Are Marvel’s Next Moves?
Late last week, Bleeding Cool was reporting that Marvel had just wrapped up a series of four short test shoots which they were pitching to Netflix, one of which they reported to be White Tiger.
For those unaware, White Tiger is a Marvel character who inherits a magical amulet that allows her to channel the power of the Tiger God.

White Tiger is, of course, not to be confused with DC’s Vixen character, who made her first appearance in Action Comics #521 (1981).
The White Tiger of Marvel Comics (Angela De Toro) does have established links to several of the characters currently in the Netflix stable, such as Luke Cage and Daredevil. However, the White Tiger rumour was quickly smacked down by Umberto Gonzalez of Heroic Hollywood fame.

Whether or not the White Tiger rumours are true, the idea that Marvel is producing additional content to pitch to Netfix is sure to get the minds of Marvel fans churning.
Given the fate of Marvel’s Agent Carter on ABC, could the studio be seeking an expanded partnership with Netflix; a platform that benefits from allowing fans to pick and choose which shows they latch on to and who would, presumably, be less concerned with content saturation?
