daredevilseason2teaser-170508

Daredevil returned to Netflix with new episodes last Friday.  I may be the only writer here so far to finish the new episodes.  Color me surprised.  I just must have had a lot of free time this weekend.

Now I feel sad.

Anyway, review and SPOILERS after the cut.

Let The Hype Train Begin For The Next Marvel Netflix Series: Luke Cage

So apparently at the end of the last episode of season two of Daredevil, there is a very short teaser for the upcoming Luke Cage series.  I’ve only watched episode one of season two so far, so I have no idea how accurate that statement is.  And yes, my geek cred should be dropped a notch.

If you are interested in the teaser, you can find it after the cut.  And look for Luke Cage to premiere on Netflix on September 30th.

The Punisher Problem

The second season of Daredevil dropped today.  I’m not one for binge watching, personally, so I have no idea how long it will take me to watch the show, but as of this typing I’ve watched the first episode and liked what I saw.

But the promised appearance of the Punisher had me reflecting that, no matter how popular a character he is, he is a weird anomaly in the Marvel pantheon of a character with little discernible personality and few memorable appearances.

Daredevil Season Two Trailer Two Will Make You Wish It Was March 18th.

Part one of the official Daredevil Season Two trailer focused on newcomer Frank Castle, aka The Punisher.  The part two trailer focuses on another newcomer, former DD lover and season one easter egg, Elektra.

Watch it after the cut.  And watch season two of Daredevil on Netflix on March 18th, but I didn’t need to tell you that.

Trailer Time: Daredevil Season Two

Marvel's Daredevil season 2 drops on Netflix

A two part trailer?  That’s kinda nutty.

But I will say this:  this may be the most nuanced version of the Punisher I’ve ever seen, and this is just some select clips from the show.  I am assuming the Elektra stuff is saved for the next one aside from that briefest of brief glimpses.  But the Punisher has this real “Killing Joke” vibe going for him when he talks about one bad moment.

This is probably going to rock.  Trailer after the cut.

Celebrate Chinese New Year With A New Daredevil Promo

I think Chinese New Year was technically yesterday, but I overdosed the site with all the geek ads from Super Bowl 50.  So let’s start the day with a very short tease for Daredevil season two.  If you like seeing super heroes stand up and vigilantes say one word off screen, then this teaser is for you!

Netflix Attempts To Keep Marvel Zombies Happy

If you’re a fan of Marvel’s Netflix shows so far, it was a good weekend of news for you.  First came word that Netflix and Marvel were in talks to put a Punisher show into development based on strong word of mouth for his appearance in Daredevil season two…which hasn’t even aired yet.  The Punisher seems a natural fit for the grim and gritty urban crime fighting world that Netflix has established.  We’ll know when Daredevil season two begins on March 18th if they have successfully pulled off the Frank Castle character.  Previous big screen incarnations have ranged between acceptable to downright abysmal.

Next up, though it hasn’t gotten a lot of exposure in these parts because of reasons, Jessica Jones was excellent.  So it is not overly surprising that Netflix and Marvel have announced that Jessica Jones season two is now in the works.  There isn’t much more information than that at this point.  There has been some speculation that we could see it as early as the end of the year, pointing out the 11 month gap between DD seasons 1 and 2.  Jessica Jones season 1 dropped in November of last year.  So while it is possible, I’d expect it more than likely in early 2017.

In any case, with DD season two just two months away, Luke Cage due at some point this year and now JJ season two, Iron Fist and possibly The Punisher in the pipeline, this Marvel/Netflix relationship has really prospered.

And a little teaser for Jessica Jones Season 2 after the break…

Expect Everyone Outside Of The X-Men and Fantastic Four In Avengers: Infinity War

infinity_gauntlet_everybody

Co-directors and gluttons for punishment The Russo Brothers have revealed they currently have 67 characters lined up to appear in the two part Avengers: Infinity War.  My immediate reaction was “Holy $#@*!”  That has got to include EVERYONE.  The MCU regulars of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, new blood like Ant-Man, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange and Blank Panther.  Even the TV crowd most be represented.  Anyone from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil, Luke Cage and/or Jessica Jones.  The Captain Marvel movie is scheduled in between Infinity War Parts One and Two so you’d think she’d be involved somehow.  And there are sure to be characters making their debut here as well.  Sounds like a whole lot of awesome.

Joe Russo teases:

“People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of ‘Infinity War’ is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen, and we’re going to honor that concept.”

All that said, maybe we need to keep expectations a little in check.  I’m sure we will see a lot of the crowd mentioned above.  And the TV shows do make occasional reference to the movies so they clearly take place in the same universe unlike whatever mess DC has going on.  But keep in mind the phrasing here…67 characters.  There could be villains other than Thanos that appear.  Aunt May is a character.  Night Nurse.  Agent Carter.  Pepper Potts.  The cop picking up Twinkies for his wife before heading over to Nakatomi Plaza.  That S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent with the red shirt on that Thanos kills on an away mission.  You get the point.

And it won’t be any day soon we’ll get much clarification here as Avengers: Infinity War Part One is not scheduled until May 4th, 2018.
