Tessa Thompson talks about her hopes for a female-driven Marvel movie. Danny Elfman says he’s resurrecting his classic Batman theme for Justice League. James Marsters discusses the Daredevil inspiration he took for his Runaways villain. Plus, goofy new Flash footage, and Thandie Newton on Solo’s director change.…
I like Jeph Loeb. Nice guy. Knows how to work up a crowd and you can tell that he truly loves working as the head of Marvel’s television arm and will defend it to the death. But when Loeb was recently pressed about some of Marvel TV’s... weaker elements, he balked and gave one of the most ridiculous answers possible.
Just as Luke Cage is dispatching Misty Knight to Iron Fist’s second season, the next season of Luke Cage is bringing in an Iron Fist alum—the titular hero himself. Hopefully there’ll be some hiring for heroes while he’s there, too.
One of the most enjoyable things about The Defenders wasn’t just seeing years of Netflix plans come together in a four-hero adventure—it was the return Marvel’s unrivalled queen of snark, Jessica Jones, ready and more than willing to dunk on her fellow superheroes. And boy howdy, did she dunk.
The Defenders debuts on Netflix this Friday, bringing together four different characters and TV shows into one giant super mega crossover. For anyone who needs a reminder of what the heck these characters have been doing, or maybe skipped Iron Fist for relatively obvious reasons, here’s a video crash course.
There’s a lot we still don’t know about Alexandra, the mysterious villain at the heart of Netflix and Marvel’s superhero team-up show—but the third and last full trailer for the series is about exactly what you need to know about her: It’s Sigourney Goddamn Weaver getting to be evil as hell, and it’s delightful.
The funny thing about seeing all of Netflix’s Defenders fighting together is that when you think about it, they all kinda have a variation of the same archetypical superpower. The Defenders aren’t just the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s street-level heroes, they all punch things really hard—and that’s part of what makes…
Comic book fans know that The Defenders’ Iron Fist and Luke Cage are destined to work together. But we’ve seen the trailers, we’ve seen the two of them fighting, and we know that it’s not friendship at first sight. So, what is the root of the problem?
When Marvel’s Legacy event kicks off later this year, it won’t just be a way for the publisher to bring beloved, long-dead characters back from the grave, it’ll also be one of the first times we get a look at the Avengers’ truest, deepest origins that go back a million years.
It sounds like an insult to say that The Defenders is exactly what you thought it would be, but it isn’t. It’s a show that’s very aware of the expectations put upon it and the problems encountered by the other Marvel Netflix shows, and it knows how to best utilize its cast and its time. In other words, it’s great.
Matt Murdock’s Catholic upbringing and his deep feelings of guilt are just as important to Daredevil as his enhanced senses. So it shouldn’t be a shock to see Matt take confession in this new clip from the first episode of The Defenders—although it is kind of surprising that even the priest would like him to stop…
Of the many villains that Danny Rand faced in Netflix’s Iron Fist, a case could be there was none greater than Scott Buck, the series’ showrunner, who gave the series an unlikable Danny Rand, too many boring Rand Corporation board meetings, and a dearth of fight scenes that actually look cool.
The Defenders have taken over Comic-Con in a big way Friday evening giving us teasers for Punisher, a taste of what’s to come in Iron Fist, and even for fans attending the panel, a sneak peak of Defenders’ first episode. But for us at home, we get this glorious new trailer to revel in, and it’s so, so good.
The next season of Netflix’s Iron Fist show just a hell of a lot more interesting—because Marvel just confirmed that the cast is getting an upgrade in the form of one of the best parts of another Netflix show: Luke Cage’s Misty Knight.
When Marvel started teasing its Marvel Now line-up last year, one of the most intriguing titles was Kaare Andrews and Afu Chan’s Iron Fists, a series about Danny Rand training the youngest bearer of the Iron Fist, a little girl named Pei. Unfortunately the series vanished off the face of the earth—but it’s back, and…
Ever sat down to bingewatch Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, or Iron Fist and wondered “Hey, what these shows really need is Stan Lee being driven around in a car and lurking creepily in the background” to yourself? Well my friends, does Netflix Korea have the trailer for you.
There’s a few more details on the rumored Resident Evil reboot. Penn Jillette teases his Black Mirror episode. Finn Jones says to expect Danny Rand’s classic costume in Iron Fist’s second season. Plus, new footage from Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and Orphan Black, and tons of new pictures from Doctor Who. Spoilers now!
Greetings, my garrulous guttersnipes! (I feel like I’m turning into a Batman ‘66 villain here.) This week: Those Game of Thrones spin-off series! How to improve the Iron Fist TV show’s story! Whether Stormtroopers get paid! And a question so weird, I couldn’t stop answering it! (You’ll know it when you see it.)
We’ve seen Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist all individually do battle with the evil that plagues Netflix’s corners of the Marvel Universe. Now, for the first time we get a look at all four of them fighting together as the Defenders they were destined to become.
A new viral teaser for Marvel and Netflix’s big crossover has just confirmed that we’ve got another four months until Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Danny Rand start teaming up: because The Defenders is coming August 18.
