The Defenders are here! Here we get a good look at what the show is going to be giving us over 8 episodes. And thank goodness, because these 13 episode long shows are starting to drain me. But let’s talk about what we saw here and figure out whether or not we’re going to be excited!
3 trailers in one day? Thank you SDCC!
Deep in the darkness of late Thursday night/Friday morning, Netflix released the much anticipated follow up season to Daredevil. It also surprised Netflix subscribers with a first look at the upcoming series, Luke Cage.
April 10th, 2015 was a momentous day. Netflix and Marvel gave us all thirteen episodes of the first Marvel series to hit the streaming service, Daredevil. The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and is just the beginning of a universe designed for Netflix but one that is still tied in with the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. Eventually we'll see A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron First and finally The Defenders. All of that will come in time, today I'm here to tell you what I thought of the first season of Daredevil and yes...it did wash away that horrible taste of the Ben Affleck film of the same name.
This will be the year of Comic Book TV shows. We've had shows in the past, notably Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, and Smallville. More recently we have Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but this year we will see Gotham, Constantine, and The Flash join the fold. Netflix will premiere five shows available to stream from Marvel Television, Daredevil being the first in 2015 and then Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and eventually The Defenders. And now we're getting word that DC is shopping the idea of a Supergirl television show in the near future.
News has broken that Marvel/Netflix have finally found their Daredevil. Comic fans will be pleased to know that Boardwalk Empire alumni Charlie Cox has been cast to play the daring crusader known as "Daredevil". Speculation on who would play Marvel's fearless hero has been running rampant, and we can now say with certainty that the character has officially been cast!
