Loki, Scarlet Witch, Other Marvel Heroes to Get Own Series on Disney Streaming Service, Maybe?

Disney is enlisting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. The entertainment giant is in early development on an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These series will likely include shows centered on Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.

Marvel and Disney had no comment.

Okay so that top part is a copy and paste from the article from Variety. See I am honest about where is got it from. But the thing that has me wondering is Marvel and Disney had no comment. The rest of the article goes on about the streaming service and cost of this and that but nothing to really confirm the story.

I am hoping that this all true and in a few days we will see confirmation from Disney and Marvel. If they plan on using the original actors from the movies to also do the TV series well take my money. But take what you read with a grain of salt. Even Variety may get it wrong.

My Thoughts On Netflix/Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2

Netflix/Marvel’s Iron Fist makes it return this Friday and if you, like me were not to sure about taking a second chance on Season 2. Well I have to say that episode one on it’s own is a big improvement. Hell episode one was better then most of Season 1. Yeah this is just my opinion but I was hooked and wanting more after viewing the first episode. Joy Meachum(Jessica Stroup) continues to seek revenge against Danny and her brother Ward Meachum(Tom Pelphrey) for keeping the secret of their father still being alive. Colleen Wing(Jessica Henwick) trying to leave the streets behind but being pulled back because of a mystery involving her family past.

This season we see more of Davos(Sacha Dhawan) as he wants to get back the Iron Fist that he believe he was rightfully his. Mommy he has what should of been mine and I am going to get it back to make you proud. I found Sacha Dhawan portray of Davos much more convincing then Finn Jones portray of Danny Rand, sorry Finn. You can feel Davos anger, hatred and jealous of Danny. But also at times his love for his adopted brother. Oh and his martial art skills are pretty dam good for the show. Sacha must of read and/or seen the complaints from last year.

Marvel’s Iron Fist

The charater that I am most happy to see has gotten a bigger role is Colleen Wing(Jessica Henwick). Colleen is  trying to leave the streets behind but being pulled back in because of a mystery involving her family past. There a couple of times that we get to see Colleen really kicking some ass. To be honest I would love to see more of her. Jessica Henwick was and still is in my opinion the real reason to watch Iron Fist if you want to see some really good TV martial arts. Yes of course being a good actress makes Colleen Wing come to life.

Marvel’s Iron Fist

Finally the introduction of Alice Eve as “Typhoid Mary” Walker. Based on the character introduced in Daredevil #254 to be the enemy of Matt Murdock(Daredevil) she is now a foil of Danny Rand. Alice Eve has done a very good job in the first six episodes I got to see in advance. I am not sure if any of her mutant skills will come into effect. It be a shame if they are not mention at least. In Iron Fist, Mary is an hired mercenary helping Joy with her revenge plans.

But lets us talk about the two of the biggest complaints for Season 1. I am among many that never felt that Finn Jones never really fit. I still have a hard time getting behind his portray of Danny Rand. I not going to shit on his acting. Hell I can’t act. Oh some who don’t will but I can only say from my point of view I never ever felt anything for the character. Yes does have to do on Finn Jones choice on the Danny Rand character. I will but part of the blame on show runner from Season 1, Scott Buck. Sorry to say that again I still do not get 100% behind Jones portray of Danny Rand.  It looks as Jones and new showrunner Raven Metzner (Sleepy Hollow, Falling Skies, Heroes Reborn) do have the character on the better track.

The second part that I had and heard many complain about was Finn Jones martial art skills. It was not good. That was major complaint along with Danny spent to much time whining. Well both of those have been corrected.

Finn Jones must of spent his off time with training and more training. It has paid off. There are times when you know that a stunt double/martial arts person is doing the job but overall a large improvement. Danny has found his purpose now in protecting the city(keeping his word to Matt Murdock) but mostly keeping a war between the remaining gangs from happening. Getting rid of the Hand has left a vacuum of a controlling gang. Now the rest want to be top dog or dragon.

So overall I have to say that the first six episodes that I got to watch are an improvement to the first season.  I like you will have to watch the 4 remainder episodes on Netflix when it drops on Friday. But unlike season 1 I am really looking forward to it.

Hey give a shot. Let me know what you think.

Oh yeah there is a special guest to.
