Netflix‘s IronFist has cast the second half of the Daughters of the Dragon.

That makes at least two actors from Game of Thrones in the series, Henwick and Finn Jones as the lead Danny Rand, could more be on the horizon? (more…)

One week ago today, Marvel and Netflix unleashed Daredevil season two. The praise has been very high, as it was for the first season, with laurels for the performances from original cast members Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson, as well as newcomers Jon Bernthal and Élodie Yung as key Marvel Universe figures the Punisher and Elektra, respectively.

How far did you get? (more…)

Marvel Studios and Netflix launched Daredevil season two this past weekend, and considering the hype of including major characters like Punisher and Elektra, not to mention the good willed sewed with the tremendous first season, it’s safe to say it was another hit. Between Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and the building hype for the fall premiere of Luke Cage, and the presently in pre-production Iron Fist, Netflix is where its at for Marvel characters (at least until Civil War comes out), so why not bring other established Marvel characters to Netflix? Hawkeye for example? The man who plays Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner, has some thoughts on that. (more…)

Following up on the news that Luke Cage will be streamed far and wide this coming September, a key Marvel Entertainment figure is now talking about that show’s follow-up, Iron Fist. Of course, the journey of Iron Fist has not been a smooth one, as work progressed steadily on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, Iron Fist seemed to be stuck in neutral, unable to even make it off the drawing board.

But now that there’s forward motion on Iron Fist, we’re being told to expect something, ahem, different when it finally debuts. (more…)

So far, the collaboration between Netflix and Marvel Studios has been two-for-two with Daredevil and Jessica Jones, but can they make it three-for-three? That will be the big question when Luke Cage debuts on the streaming site later this year, but when will that be precisely? Cage will have a leg up because the character’s already been introduced in Jessica Jones, but it will be a bold new step for the Marvel Movie and TV Universe as it will be the first to feature an African-American hero, one with a cult following and a lot of history. So when will you get a chance to see Luke Cage? Think “Back to School.” (more…)
