Are There More Marvel Netflix Spin-Offs on the Rise?

While Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist along with The Defenders were the original deal between Disney and Netflix, there’s a chance we could be getting more spin-off shows. Netflix’s Vice President Cindy Holland spoke at the TCA Summer Tour, expressing the openness for other Marvel shows. We can all attribute this essentially to Jon Bernthal’s performance as Frank Castle in Daredevil season two, launching the need for a separate Punisher series. Holland confirmed, “there’s always an ongoing discussion as to whether we will spin off additional characters.” While it’s highly unlikely that we’ll be getting a Ghost

Why Marvel Comics CCO Joe Quesada Thinks Comics Should Differ From Movies

There has long been a debate about how close comic based movies and television should adhere to the comics they are based on. It is Marvel Comics Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada belief that for these stories to be told in a way that would be fresh and attract new audiences, it is important for comics and movies and television to embrace the need to stay truly separate. He explains that by narrowing your choices to the comic book canon, you limit what you can do and perhaps lose an audience that you could attract with some changes being made.

Classic ‘Iron Fist’ Look Debuts in Season 2 Trailer

For those of us who are old school traditionalist and admire the original costume our favorite heroes wore, we were rewarded when The Iron Fist Season 2 panel at the SDCC unveiled a look at the iconic yellow mask.

Now with recently dropped teaser, we get a better look at it as Danny and Davos square off in a tradition fight in “Kun- Lun”. You can see the

‘The Punisher’ Season 2 Is Exactly What Fans Want, Marvel CCO Promises

The Punisher season 1 is still my favorite show in the Marel Netflix universe. After introducing Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle in the second season of Daredevil, I knew that Castle’s solo series would be unlike any of the other Defenders universe shows. Gritty, raw, and explosive, The Punisher showcased the many different sides of its title character rather than just the violent soldier that we primarily saw in Daredevil. Of course, our favorite anti-hero was everything we wanted him to be, but seeing him as a friend, husband, and father was not something we were able to see before his own

Looking to the Future – Films and Television of 2019

It’s all over. The votes are in and looking ahead, 2019 might be the biggest year ever for geeks like myself. Some of the biggest (and in “Game of Thrones” case, most awarded) TV shows of all time are coming to a close next year. 2019 will mark the end of “Game of Thrones”, “Gotham”, and possibly “Marvel’s Agents of Shield.” It will also see the end of the “Infinity War”saga with release of “Avenger’s 4” (or whatever they end up calling it). Perhaps the title will be: “Avengers 4: The quest to bring back all of the heroes we

Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Begins Production on Season 6

With production beginning on the 6th and probably final season of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,” what have we learned so far? We know that the title of the first episode of the 13 episode season is “Missing Pieces” and it is directed by the “Son of Coul” himself, Clark Gregg. This isn’t Gregg’s first time in the directors chair as he directed Season 5 episode “Fun and Games.” We also know that Jeff Ward has been signed as a series regular in his role as Fitzsimmons Grandson Zeke. More lemons for Quake it would seem. The fact that he hasn’t
