Are Disney suits polishing the brass on their own personal Superhero Titanic?

Yesterday, news broke regarding Edgar Wright’s departure from Ant-Man, the Phase Three Marvel MCU picture he had been developing with the studio for the last eight years. Details we sketchy regarding his exit, but with the film this close to shooting, speculation ran rampant around the Internet (as it tends to do). Today, Latino Review has dropped one of their patented “inside scoops” regarding the Wright disaster while almost simultaneously breaking the news that Cabin In the Woods director Drew Goddard has left the Daredevil series Marvel was developing with Netflix. The reports on both are troubling, to say the least, as it reads like Disney and Marvel suits are meddling in the creative galley, to the point that their talent are jumping ship left and right.

It finally happened.

After five tumultuous seasons, Community was finally given the axe last Friday. After surviving disastrously low ratings, two major stars leaving, and its creator getting fired and then re-hired, the show was finally put to rest. It was a great run and fans were “outraged” (more on this in a second) that NBC would cancel the series, peppering Twitter with the now infamous #SixSeasonsAndaMovie hashtag and even threatening to boycott the network in some instances. The darkest timeline had finally arrived and it was an ugly day for avid fans and passive viewers of the show alike.

Like clockwork, talk regarding the show being picked by and continued on by another network was instantaneous. Could Netflix “save” the series, a la Arrested Development? What about Hulu or Netflix? Could it land on TBS, like Cougar Town did? Now recently rehired show-runner Dan Harmon is weighing in on the possibility of a sixth season and his words may shock the show’s rabid fan-base.

This will probably be a kind of “no duh” update for those of us who understand how business models work, but it looks like those who enjoy stuffing themselves with as much TV as they can in one sitting are going to be pleased with the planned release of Marvel’s upcoming Daredevil series.

Comic Book Resources recently sat down with former Marvel Comics Editor in Chief Joe Quesada (who has since been promoted to Chief Creative Officer), and it seems like not only is Daredevil a mere heartbeat away, but the series is also going to follow the traditional Netflix model of distribution. Quesada comments on many different topics during the interview, but the most intriguing quotes described just how hands on he is in the process of developing these series.
