Marvel’s TV universe has plenty of balls to juggle for the moment, between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., its spinoff and side-project, as well as the Netflix Defenders, and it seems we may have another name in the mix. Ryan Phillippe has reportedly entered talks for a role in one of the new Netflix series, but might he be our Iron Fist?
Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight has previously spoken of his interest in a second Netflix season, though the Marvel drama has since revealed its renewal plans without DeKnight at the helm. Now, series star Charlie Cox has his own thoughts on where Daredevil Season 2 might go, including Defenders ties, Avengers crossover, and even The Punisher.
Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight said he wanted to try and work more Marvel easter eggs into the first season of the Netflix series, but a lot of future characters (like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage) hadn't been cast yet. But, what if for one of the upcoming Marvel shows on Netflix, they were able to introduce a future character that had been cast? That's the basis for a pretty interesting, yet unconfirmed rumor, that states Benedict Cumberbatch will appear as Doctor Strange in the upcoming Iron Fist series.
This past weekend saw quite a few interesting revelations on the state of Marvel TV crossovers, while the full release of Netflix’s Daredevil seemed to set up a great many threads for Iron Fist in particular. Now, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight goes in-depth on Daredevil’s future, including Season 2, Jessica Jones, The Defenders and more.
The moment Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was announced, fans wondered if any Avengers might pop in on Coulson’s new adventures. Recent rumors suggested Netflix’s Defenders might instead cross over to celluloid in Avengers: Infinity War, but a new report offers surprising insight on which MCU TV characters may make the leap, and what it would take to see Avengers on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel’s Daredevil will hit the streets of Netflix in only two days’ time, with AKA Jessica Jones already in production, but we can’t help wondering how Luke Cage and Iron Fist will all cross over into our future Defenders. Now, Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight teases the groundwork laid by Marvel’s first original Netflix series, as well as if Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones may make an appearance.
The Man Without Fear returns to New York as Marvel's Netflix 'Daredevil' formally unveils the first of the 'Defenders' at New York Comic-Con 2014. We're on hand with Marvel TV heads and the entire Netflix cast for a first look at the new superhero drama due out in 2015, so what does Marvel's 'Daredevil' bring to the stage for its first official unveiling? Check out our full panel report for the inside scoop on Marvel's Netflix 'Daredevil!
Marvel fans have anxiously awaited a first look at Netflix's 'Daredevil' series to arrive at New York Comic-Con 2014, but if a new report is to be believed, the superhero empire may already have found its live-action 'Luke Cage' as well. 'Psych' and 'West Wing' star Dulé Hill has reportedly won the part of Marvel's comic book hero for hire, while both 'Jessica Jones' and 'Iron Fist' may soon be announced as well.
By now, superhero fans have long since accepted that the chances of seeing Spider-Man appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are slim at best. As long as Sony holds the rights to the character, they're going to keep making Spidey movies until the day the Earth stops spinning and the human race quietly fades into nothingness. At least you'll be able to create your own Spider-Man/Avengers team-up with the upcoming Disney Infinity 2.0, which will include a cool Spider-Man playset. You can watch the super-goofy trailer for it above!
We've heard precious little since Marvel's announcement of an epic Netflix 'Defenders' package to begin with 'Daredevil' in 2015, along with the decision that all five series would shoot in New York, but with casting in limbo, at least some news have emerged. What does Marvel honcho Joe Quesada have to say of the "street-level noir" approach to the series and possible inter-connectivity to the films?
