We knew that no other Defenders series would quite match Luke Cage for soundtrack, but Iron Fist at least looks to be in good hands for its March premiere. Emmy-winning Vikings composer Trevor Morris will helm the first season of Marvel’s final Defender, according to reports.
The third season of Charlie Brooker’s mind-bending dystopian series Black Mirror arrived on Netflix last week. If you’ve binged all six episodes and your mental health is still intact, first of all, congratulations! You must be an emotionally bulletproof person (but maybe go watch something light and comedic to cool down). But most importantly, did you catch all the easter eggs?
Whether ripping throats out or tossing Batman against the wall, Jason Momoa does not seem like someone whose bad side you’d venture to be on. Netflix seems to be erring on the side of caution in that regard, renewing Momoa’s 18th century fur-trapping drama Frontier for Season 2 before Season 1 even hits streaming.
The initial lack of announced cast for Marvel’s Netflix Punisher spinoff made it unusual that production had begun, but now that Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle is firmly back in the habit, more fresh faces are announced for the Defender side-series. Both Bates Motel’s Jaime Ray Newman and 11.22.63 sharpshooter Daniel Webber have joined the cast in supporting roles, along with two others.
In the pantheon of horror movies with titles so absurdly long and unwieldy they eventually become awesome again, Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key and Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things have new company. There was no way Netflix was letting Halloween go by without releasing some seasonally-appropriate content, and right on cue, they’ve unveiled the trailer for one of their latest acquisitions, the delicate ghost story I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House.
It’s been years in the making, but we’re ready to spend A Year in the Life with the Gilmore Girls, even if it takes the span of a single evening to binge through it all. Return to Stars Hollow, as our first official trailer for November’s Netflix revival comes with all the coffee you can drink!
Netflix’s The Get Down made headlines for the wrong reasons at first, as reports of Baz Luhrmann‘’s ballooning budget and reshoots pulled focus from positive reviews. Production even made history by separating the two halves of its first Netflix season, while new reports suggest episode budgets have reached as high as $16 million.
The first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones absolutely demanded women’s perspective behind the camera, and Season 2 is very much upping the ante. Before production commences on a second run of Krysten Ritter’s breakout Defender, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg confirms all thirteen Jessica Jones Season 2 episodes will feature women directing.
Netflix’s Narcos is going to look very different by the time Season 3 premieres in 2017; not solely for the absence of Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel, but also a number of fresh faces. Latest to join the Colombian drug war is that of Halt & Catch Fire star Kerry Bishé, and a Broad City fan-favorite.
The recent release of Luke Cage may have crystallized how out of touch Marvel’s Defenders series feel with the current MCU film slate, a problem not likely to get better with Doctor Strange splitting New York into multiple dimensions. Timing makes it difficult to write any of the four Netflix stars into the films, but with Infinity War on the horizon, new comments from Kevin Feige again dash our hopes.
