Marvel's Netflix Universe |Daredevil Season 2 - March 18th

Recommended Posts

Dumb comic shit has been in this show from the premise- the very first episode made it clear the only reason the mob was running wild is because of the events in the first avengers movie destroying new york. Call it an easter egg or whatever but it's there.

 

I don't particularly like the tie in stuff either- I know some fanboys love the infinite crossing over easter egg call outs but the MCU bollocks is weighing down the actual stories they keep trying to shoehorn into it. Having the avengers stuff is fine, but throwing every other thing in too? It's going to become like reading superhero comics is now- a massive convoluted mess you need a  fucking walkthrough or guide to understand and get into. It's alienating.

 

I think the last hope we had for a marvel property not being dragged into the MCU was Wright's Antman, but that's fucked now.

Wright's Antman actively ruined the chances of a proper adaptation of a character I like, so forgive me if I won't cry over that :V

Did you read the script ? Were you on set?

Do you mean proper as in faithful? The only other "adaptation" he's made was Scott Pilgrim, a fantastically interesting and absolutely faithful take on the original work.

I think Antman would have had similar reverence for its source material.

Although if you mean proper as in "a clone movie like everything else in the MCU" then yeah, he did ruin that because now he shot some action scenes that didn't blow ass.

I mean proper as in he directly went and made a movie about Scott Lang, blocking the chance of a good Hank Pym movie.

 

There's more than one character under the Ant-Man mantle, and in these cases where there's multiple characters leading to a passing of mantles, I'd rather have them go through it in order. Especially when it robs me of potentially a good funny/tragic and heartfelt movie about a man with mental issues who wants to be a superhero but keeps fucking it up.

Someone is looking sinister on the AKA Jessica Jones set

tumblr_nortlcmy981u0xphoo1_500.jpgtumblr_nortlcmy981u0xphoo2_500.jpg

 

 

I'm still expecting him to have purple skin, whether after-effects, use of his power, or him being revealed(since he can make others think he looks normal, or wear tan skin cream)

 

Also, with what happened in MAOS, things have been opened for powered super minions, so I wonder if any will show up in this. Though I think tech ones have a good chance of showing up(since this takes place after Daredevil)

I absolutely loved the first season of Daredevil! Personally, it is now my favorite title in the MCU canon. I much prefer the more grounded, intimate and mature tone over what you're likely to see in a big-budget extravaganza like Age of Ultron. That isn't to say AoU wasn't any good, but I much prefer the presentation of Daredevil. Honestly, I feel like it's possible to have both styles work within the same canon. I know they're drastically different, but that doesn't mean they're wholly incompatible. I wouldn't mind if they introduced more comic book elements into the second season. In any case, I wouldn't care if such elements were added so long as the show wouldn't cease to be a human drama. I think it's possible to keep the show grounded and add additional elements that don't correspond to reality as we experience it in our world. I just don't see how having additional fantasy elements will inherently ruin anything whatsoever. I don't think it's right to call it nonsense. A good enough writer can make it work if given the opportunity. A series that doesn't take the risk to venture outside its comfort zone will eventually grow stale.

We got a first response to some of the first few episodes of AKA Jessica Jones, from the writer himself(who isn't working on the first season due to prior commitments to Powers)

http://screenrant.com/jessica-jones-netflix-series-brian-michael-bendis/

‘Jessica Jones’ Comics Writer: Netflix Show Is ‘Faithful and Lively’

There’s a certain amount of inherent risk whenever a comic book property is adapted for the big or small screen. After all, most titles have decades of stories, dozens of characters and existing fanbases that are ready to share their wrath if their beloved pages aren’t captured accurately and effectively.

However, even with that – and the stigma of the tepidly received 2003 film – Marvel Studios scored a victory with its Daredevil Netflix series, winning over both critics and fans alike. The streaming service seems tailor-made for delivering darker takes on some of Marvel’s more grounded heroes, but the format’s real test may come later this year when Jessica Jones is released.

 
 
 

 

The series – which stars Krysten Ritter as the eponymous superhero-turned-private-investigator and Mike Colter as Power Man a.k.a. Luke Cage – will be faced with introducing these relatively more obscure characters to viewers. As co-creator of the comics’ Jessica Jones, Brian Michael Bendis recently took to Tumblr to voice his support of the show in response to a fan’s question about his involvement. Here’s what he had to say:

Marvel TV Netflix AKA Jessica Jones Synopsis Jessica Jones Comics Writer: Netflix Show Is Faithful and Lively

 

Though Bendis is “proud to have [his] name on [the show],” he indicated that he was unavailable to work on it directly due to his commitment to the Playstation Network series Powers. Still, he had access to the initial drafts of the Jessica Jones pilot script and met with the series’ writers to answer any questions they had about the story beforehand. Such high praise from Bendis should help Jessica Jones fans rest easy, especially considering how closely the Netflix incarnation (featuring Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, Dexter)) hews to its source material:

The crime-drama tone of Daredevil was perhaps one of its most lauded attributes, and it’s wise of Marvel to continue that approach throughout its Netflix shows, especially since they will all connect by the time The Defenders comes around. Moreover, it lines up perfectly with what we’ve heard (from other people involved) about Jessica Jones thus far.

Bendis also weighed in on the casting of Ritter and Colter. Aside from some vague promotional images, not much has been officially released yet with them in-character. That’s made it hard for fans to ascertain just how well the actors will fit their comic book counterparts. but Bendis says there’s no need to worry:

Colter has said how Luke Cage will present a “more tangible” hero than those included in Marvel Studios film releases. Considering that the character will headline his own subsequent Netflix series after Jessica Jones, it’s certainly in Marvel’s best interest to get him just right for his first onscreen appearance.

We finally got a logo 

It's weird how little we know about this in general. 

There's been a few more interviews, I can pull them up if you like. Also Patsy Cline AKA Hellcat is confirmed, and implied to have her alter ego as well

So something interesting seems to have appeared, someone poked at Netflix's code and might have found the episode titles for Jessica Jones. Seems to be legit, and you can try yourself if you want. Spoilers follow

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=175908467&postcount=895

 

Found this on reddit:

So here are the episode titles:

 

 

So that's interesting. Also fun fact, Jessica Jones had 2 alter egos in the comics, Jewel and Knightress. and of course Luke Cage is also known as Power man

 

Edit: Also look at Season 2 Daredevil, there's been a handful of revisions

Note it is a bigger pic so click. Also for anyone complaining about the nose being cover, pretty sure the producers commented on it, and said it's covered because without it you can tell it's him

Looks like we have our first major baddie for Luke Cage:

alfre-woodard.jpg

According to Deadline, Woodward's character Minetta is "a powerful woman in local politics who will have an impact on Luke Cage’s life." Though no further details have been provided about the role, the announcement speculates that Woodward's character will be Black Mariah, a frequent antagonist for both Cage and iron Fist in the comics.

For those that aren't familiar with her Black Mariah is, uh... well...

There's a reason they're looking to retool her -_-;

casting confirmation

http://screenrant.com/luke-cage-alfre-woodard-confirmed/

Luke Cage: Alfre Woodard Confirmed; Character Details Revealed

Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard in Luke Cage Luke Cage: Alfre Woodard Confirmed; Character Details Revealed

Marvel first began the recent trend of shared universes in film, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, changing the way movie studios approach creating superhero franchises. Since then, Marvel has expanded into the realm of television with such shows as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil, the latter title being the first of many to come from Netflix and Marvel’s partnership.

While Daredevil is set to return with a second season sometime next year, coming before that will be Jessica Jones, set to hit the streaming service later this fall. Luke Cage, played by Mike Colter, will first make his debut as the character in Jessica Jones before spinning off into his own Netflix series – fittingly entitled Luke Cage. With filming ready to start soon, Marvel is continuing to round out its cast with yet another supporting player added to the mix.

As Marvel officially announced, Alfre Woodard of 12 Years a Slave and Annabelle has joined the cast as Mariah Dillard. The Emmy-winner was previously rumored to be playing a character named Minetta, but now it seems instead her character will be named Mariah Dillard, a powerful local politician whose career is endangered by both Luke Cage and her cousin Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes – set to be played by Mahershala Ali.

Head of Marvel television Jeph Loeb offered an official statement on Woodard’s casting, emphasizing the presence she is able to bring when on-screen:

In addition, Marvel also released an updated plot synopsis for Luke Cage, confirming the city of Harlem as the main setting, while also revealing the driving plot of the series:

Luke Cage Casts Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard Luke Cage: Alfre Woodard Confirmed; Character Details Revealed

<a href="http://us-ads.openx.net/w/1.0/rc?cs=278647ac02&cb=1442417028769&url=http%3A%2F%2Fscreenrant.com%2Fluke-cage-alfre-woodard-confirmed%2F&c.width=784&c.height=113&c.tag_id=21319&c.taglink_id=32502&c.scale=0.9285714&c.url=http%3A%2F%2Fscreenrant.com%2Fluke-cage-alfre-woodard-confirmed%2F&c.params=&c.impression_type=26" ><img src="http://us-ads.openx.net/w/1.0/ai?auid=537972635&cs=278647ac02&cb=1442417028769&url=http%3A%2F%2Fscreenrant.com%2Fluke-cage-alfre-woodard-confirmed%2F&c.width=784&c.height=113&c.tag_id=21319&c.taglink_id=32502&c.scale=0.9285714&c.url=http%3A%2F%2Fscreenrant.com%2Fluke-cage-alfre-woodard-confirmed%2F&c.params=&c.impression_type=26" border="0" alt=""></a>

 

Similar to Wilson Fisk’s role in Daredevil, it seems Woodard’s character Mariah Dillard will be a prominent public figure challenged by the presence of a new hero, this time in the form of Luke Cage. However, this time around there’s an added layer of drama with Dillard’s cousin being Cottonmouth, one of the villains Cage confronts, making things a little more personal. In addition, while Marvel has yet to directly confirm if Woodard’s character will be an updated version of comics character Black Mariah, there is a strong possibility she may be involved with the drug business as well if she is indeed a version of that character.

Woodard is just the latest official addition to the already-prestigious cast of Luke Cage, which includes the aforementioned Colter and Ali, along with Frank Whaley as Detective Scarfe, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, and Theo Rossi as what seems to be the villain Shades. Evidently, the series is already heading in the right direction, but after Daredevil kicked things off with a bang, Luke Cage has a lot to live up to. However, with such a talented cast, the series seems to be up to the task.

Daredevil season 1 is currently available on Netflix. Jessica Jones releases on November 20th, 2015, followed by Luke Cage season 1 and Daredevil season 2 in 2016. Iron Fist and The Defenders will arrive sometime thereafter.

More News! Sticks will be back for 3 episodes in Daredevil season 2!

http://marvel.com/news/tv/25110/scott_glenn_returns_to_the_netflix_original_series_marvels_daredevil

quote acted up, direct paste instead

"Legendary actor Scott Glenn (“Silence of the Lambs,” “Training Day,” “The Bourne Ultimatum”) will reprise his role as Stick on season two of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” streaming only on Netflix in 2016!

The mysterious and sardonic character of Stick crashes into Daredevil's life right when he needs him the least! Responsible for training young Matt and then abandoning him, Stick returns with a new mission that Matt wants no part of.

Stick will return for three episodes in the upcoming season.

"After seeing Scott’s performance in the first season, we knew that we had to bring him back for more,” said Executive Producer / Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb. “He is an extraordinary actor and we leapt at the chance to expand on his adventures with Matt and Daredevil.”

“In some ways, Stick is to Marvel's Daredevil what Scott Glenn has been to film and TV - a magnetic and awesome force to be reckoned with,” said Executive Producer/Showrunner Marco Ramirez. “It's an honor to welcome him back, and the Daredevil team can't wait to unleash Scott's unique brand of bad-assery upon the world in Season 2.”

“Marvel's Daredevil” is Executive Produced by Doug Petrie (“American Horror Story,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Orange is the New Black”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost"), along with Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”)

"Marvel's Daredevil" is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios. Season one of “Marvel’s Daredevil” is now streaming on Netflix."

While it is good to see Sticks back, I am a bit worried about the next season feeling too crowded, what made this season of Daredevil was the tight because of how they kept the elements all related to the main plot and never went too far from the road, but now we have Punisher, Elektra, Sticks and his agenda, and probably Bullseye. Kinda worried the plot will lose itself, however I'll trust the writers, as they did an amazing job and never let me down.

I gotta be honest, I'm not THAT interested in Jessica Jones, still going to watch it of course, but I don't know, guess it's the lack of familiarity with the source.

Tho' I am totes in for Luke Cage.

I'm so excited for this show. And usually I hate it when Marvel kills their villains but knowing how fucked up Purple Man is, I'll have no problem seeing him die.

Well, if they do it like the comics, he will, then

It'll cut to the Morgue where he'll get up and walk away. Purple Man has a sick healing factor, he's nearly impossible to kill, but the catch is it isn't instant healing like Wolverine. It just let's him recover from injuries that would kill others
