Netflix’s appearance at the TCA press tour didn’t yield an official premiere date for Marvel’s Jessica Jones, though showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was only too happy to share Netflix’s next Defender. Not only do we have a sense of how Jessica Jones’ powers will translate to the MCU, but also how the second series will distinguish itself from the darker Daredevil.

Typically when an actor signs on to star in a Marvel film, they’re also signing on to appear in several more films — these can be sequels, or cameos and supporting roles in other MCU films. Somehow Michael Douglas didn’t have to make that deal, as the actor reveals that he hasn’t signed on for any Ant-Man sequels, though he would very much like to return to the MCU if and when possible.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has kept relatively quiet since Comic-Con 2015, but with production on Season 3 finally in swing, Coulson’s team is already sharpening up.

You don’t hire Tilda Swinton if you’re hoping for a performance that’s even remotely ordinary. Tilda Swinton’s gotta’ Tilda Swinton, even when she’s appearing in something as carefully controlled as a Marvel Studios movie. So you probably won’t bat an eye when you learn that the Oscar-winning actress may end up playing Doctor Strange’s the Ancient One as a man.

Comic book fans know that Spider-Man has always been something of a wise-ass, cracking a lot of jokes while on his way to defeating Doctor Octopus or Mysterio. The laughs in the cinematic versions of Spider-Man have varied. The three Sam Raimi film captured the tone of the books, but were mostly light on laughs (emo Peter Parker notwithstanding). The two Amazing Spider-Man movies captured some of Spidey’s goofiness (remember when Spider-Man pulled Rhino’s pants down?), but tried to balance that with a humorless plot. The new Spider-Man reboot is still a few years off, but the writers of the film are at least talking a good game about making Spider-Man’s humor crucial to the plot.

Bathed in shadows and noir lighting, Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil set itself apart from the rest of the MCU with a distinct visual palette, one the Man Without Fear looks to continue in protecting Hell’s Kitchen for a second season. To that end, Daredevil Season 2 has hired House of Cards’ Emmy-nominated Director of Photography, further establishing Matt Murdock’s (ironically) visual world in 2016.
