For purposes of this list, in order to think outside the box, I’m ruling out those properties that have already had a series or pilot/TV special: Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Captain America, Hulk, Power Pack, Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD, Generation X. Daredevil and Thor technically also had backdoor pilots via Incredible Hulk specials.
