Sepinwall calls it one of the best superhero tv shows on the "air"

He also included this link of Deborah Ann Woll and her boyfriend at the LA premiere of the show, he's legally blind and dressed up as Murdock.

He is both missing out on and experiencing something amazing. Kind of feels like a waste.

If they don't announce anything about the casting or even showrunner at the NYCC Marvel Netflix panel this weekend... well, it wouldn't definitively confirm those tumors, but it would certainly lend them some additional credence.

ITS NOT A TUMOUR!

It's odd that they never include the Avengers tower in skyline shots, despite it being in marketing materials and easy to insert.

I'm getting to the last few episodes. Given all the deaths and collateral damage that Kilgrave is racking up, why they're still trying to keep him alive, just to save some poor poor widdle girl from jail, is beyond me. Marvel morals, I suppose. Simspon (or what's his name) had it right. Rifle and bam.

Yeah. It's dumb as gently caress. Especially because they make the girl totally unlikable.

In general I didn't think this show was anywhere near Daredevil in quality. It felt noteably cheaper, her powers were handled really badly, AND I felt like everyone except the lead nailed their characters, whilst Ritter never quite hit the sweet spot.

They weren't holding him to win a trial the legal way so much as prove mind control exists. I mean there's no precedent in the US legal system for mind control. You've gotta do some unorthodox things for this poo poo.

I would've liked to see more of Jessica's time with Kilgrave. It felt a bit silly that he only had her kill a single person and we basically saw nothing of their time together.

Also, when the old lady blew herself up with Simpson was when I decided Jessica was kind of a collosal gently caress up for not just killing him immediately.

However, shouldn't his power of been nullified then meaning she wouldn't of done that?

Did Netflix change the cover art or am I just imagining things?

edit: Yeah, they've definitely changed the cover art of a bunch of their stuff.

The majority of Netflix cover images switch out randomly between a handful of different ones.

Something that didn't require a licensing agreement with a real liquor company. Just like Matt's vague German beer.

Apparently the reason Jessica Jones looked so goddamned cheap was because the show runner spent about a quarter of the budget licensing Wild Turkey for half the episodes only to have it replaced with a fake replica brand when the studio put a stop to it. By then though the damage was done and she won't be show running season two.

I just started episode 8 and it just made me realize how much I want a the Defenders show just so I can see Luke Cage tossing ninjas around like nothing. Hopefully while Jessica Jones sips from a bottle of whisky. Also holy poo poo, it's Clancy Brown.

Maybe they will keep Jessica's fighting style of getting pushed over a lot!

Seriously, everything about Jessica Jones on a visual level was such a massive step backwards from Daredevil. Her fight scenes were laughably terrible and Matt seems more powerful than she is by virtue of the fact we actually see him do more things than just break off door knobs or leap one foot out of view.

I'm hoping that shows second season really steps it up.

This is a shame.

They really weren't very good a balancing the characters in Daredevil so I can't imagine The Defenders being much better.

The latter would be the most interesting route, but I just assumed it was people involved in the coverup of what happened to Frank's family. That seemed to go pretty high, so of course they were watching his house. I didn't see that as a loose thread.

But why not just empty his house out? Why was it always just sitting around untouched even after he became a national news story. No crime tape or anything.

Why's that?

I feel like the internet at large would see a female Hulk who, instead of changing into a mass of muscles and rage, turns into a green swimsuit model, and call it sexist. It kind of is. Her design, despite whatever justifications have been given, is meant to be erotic. I don't care, but the poo poo storm would be impressive.

The N looks like it's from Jessica Jones.

This isn't that complex.

The first D is Daredevil.
The first E is Jessica Jones.
The F is Iron Fist.
The second E is Luke Cage.
The N is Jessica Jones again.
And the second D is Daredevil again.

It's because Matt has retired. But other than that, you're right, more roads lead through Matt than Danny.

Also, this was fun

What could he possibly be referring to?

I think that's kind of a dick move. Clearly theres a big difference between a rushed production like Iron Fist and a multimillion dollar film. He's just pissed he didn't get the role still.

Also the one good action scene in AB is a car chase and I'm sure as gently caress Theron isn't actually driving in it.

It's not exactly offbrand tbh.

But I guess it does show up this kind of cancellation gesture to be genuinely hollow, at least where Marvel's concerned. Sure, cancel a panel, but why lose money? Gun violence is just the cost of doing business. Fuckers.

Well Marvel Studios, who make The Punisher and all MCU things are distinct from Marvel Comics, who set up this partnership. The Marvel Studios logo isn't on any of the partnership material and nothing from the MCU has been used to promote it.

Now Marvel Studios is probably into some shady poo poo and probably has some people working there with terrible beliefs, but Marvel Comics is on a whole other level.
