Title: Netflix Marvel
Post by: HappyGilmore on September 23, 2017, 07:41:19 PM
I'm guessing we can talk this in the TV area, although it's more a streaming thing as it's not on TV, but it's episodic.  The Netflix Marvel shows have been fantastic.  They've had Daredevil (2 Seasons), Jessica Jones (1 completed, a second is coming), Luke Cage (1 finished, 2nd filming), Iron Fist (1 done, possibly a second), and it culminated with The Defenders, teaming up Jess, Daredevil, Luke and Fist.  Punisher played a role in Daredevil season 2 and is now getting his own spinoff.

Has anyone here watched any of them? Thoughts?

I loved both Daredevil seasons, Jessica Jones is underrated, and Cage was great.  Fist...had pacing issues.  Could've been 9 episodes instead of 13.

I can't say I have seen any of them, but, excluding Defenders, which is listed as being more of a miniseries, than a continuing series like the others, I have heard good things about 3 of the 4. The 3 being Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Daredevil On the other hand, I have heard mostly bad things about Iron Fist. Some even calling it the worst thing that Marvel has ever done, which I think is hyperbole. Has anybody seen Howard the Duck? Still, I am glad that Iron Fist seems to have gotten another chance with the Defenders.

Looking at what else may be available, I think Netflix is doing Punisher as a series, with 13 episodes, and with release date some time later this year in 2017.

Of course, there is a fly in the ointment, as we know no one in Hollywood always gets along with everyone else for ever, and as a disagreement has arisen between Netflix and the House of Mouse, who wholly owns Marvel, Punisher may be the last Marvel series to be seen on Netflix, for some time in the near future, the House of Mouse wants to start its own streaming service, which would include product from Marvel.

And we will see what we will see.

What I wanna know -when are they gonna do something with one of my favorite Marvel characters-Prince Namor, the SUB-MARINER?  I mean-gee-Subby came out in 1939-even before Cap! He was in the first Marvel era series-the Fantastic Four-and yet guys like Iron Fist get a show? C'mon!

Luke Cage was my favorite. Jessica Jones was meh. Never really cared about her as a character, but I enjoyed Carrie Ann-Moss as Hogarth. I wasn't into Daredevil as a character, so I only watched maybe 2 episodes of that and wasn't very impressed. Defenders was okay, I guess. Aside from Luke Cage, in my view, none of the others were memorable or worth really watching religiously.

They should do something with him.  I'd love to see it.

I believe, as of this moment, these series plus Punisher will continue for Netflix.  Only because Netflix themselves funded (or at least partially funded) production on them so, since they're funded in part by Netflix, they have first rights to airing them or producing new seasons.  It's the other Disney and Marvel stuff.  Right now, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange are available for streaming plus other Disney films.  Until the contract dissolves.

Daredevil - Best (10/10)

Jessica Jones - Second Best (9/10)

Luke Cage - Pretty good (7/10)

Iron Fist - Somewhat disappointing (4/10)

Defenders - Extremely disappointing (2/10)

Some even calling it the worst thing that Marvel has ever done, which I think is hyperbole.

Captain America with Reb Brown, the 1990s Captain America, Every Fantastic Four movie ever made, Daredevil with Ben Afflek, Elektra, X-Men Last Stand, X-Men Origins Wolverine, Spider-Man 3, Amazing Spider-Man 2, Ang Lee's Hulk.
Take your pick.

Has anybody seen Howard the Duck?

The first season of Daredevil was pretty great, but alot of that was off the back of some pretty well made action sequences and a terrific villain with the Kingpin. The second season got a bit messy but the Punisher was also pretty terrific.

Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are both pretty decent. Depends on how much you connect with them but both had something deeper to say than 'hey ninjas'. Jessica Jones overall is my favourite of the two as it was a bit more consistant but I liked alot of what Cage had in it, although it suffered from a problem with the shifting antaganosists.

Iron Fist was messy but I enjoyed it probably more than the average. They just didn't get the tone right and it just annoyed me so much how similar it mirrored aspects of Arrow: billionaire son gets lost and becomes some fighting master.

The Defenders was interesting but ultimately I wasn't a fan. Went too quickly and the villains and the plot were wasted.
