Was there anything on the Punisher or Elektra?
They're keeping that well under wraps except for the knowledge that DD & P get all angsty with one another. Still two and a half months away.
That trailer didn't really show much of anything. It was the ceiling of a church, with scenes from (what I assume) season 1 DD painted on the ceiling. They would focus on a painted picture and have dialogue play, then go to the next ceiling picture and have different dialogue play. All the while, there's a shadowy figure much closer to the camera kind of moving around on the floor. Possibly in pain.
It was a teaser trailer if anything, even if it was 1:39 long.
Just read a story on yahoo that punisher will be getting his own netflix series. I'm pretty excited about that.
Originally there were 4 series announced. DD, whatserface, Luke Cage, and Defenders. I have enjoyed the first 2 so far, so bring more on I say.
Iron Fist is still not 100% confirmed as a series yet until they are in production.
I still believe the rumors are true that Iron Fist would cost them too much money to produce so they are planning on a Netflix Movie with that character, and Punisher will be the fill in series.

I think Iron Fist has probably been replaced with Punisher and I'm good with that.
You are correct then Ukerric, I am in correct.
I always thought Power man, and Iron Fist was planned as a joint series ,but that article says otherwise.
As much as I would like to see an Iron Fist show, I'm still not sure how they are going to do it yet without just making it a movie. He brings in so many special effects.
IMO it would be best for them to give him his own movie, and make it transition to say a 4 episodic movie for defenders.
Still sounds like a shit load of money.
They're already spending money like water on these series, why not do Iron Fist?
3.3 million is pretty standard, and they aren't shot in Canada like the CW shows. Not to mention they do a shit load of location shooting which destroys any budget.The deal is for four 13 episode shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) which will come together in a 4 or 8 episode mini series (The Defenders). The deal was for $200M which if we assume is split evenly between 60 episodes put the cost of each show at about $3.3M per.Sep 23, 2014
To put in perspective, each Got episode cost 6-8 million, and something like Big Bang costs 2 million.
You put a healthy dose of CG work into that budget, and you destroy it.
Hot off the presses
Diablo 3: AMengsk#1547 - Havana

Enjoyed the first looking at that second trailer really looking forward to the second season.
On one hand it looks good. On the other, I know it's just going to piss me off in the end because DD has to win and they're just wasting Punisher as a 'villain' in someone else's show. Which is also why Punisher MAX is the best version of Frank Castle--no assholes in spandex to try to stop him.
Give it a Frank/10, hopefully when they give him his own series they'll do Slavers and maybe just maybe get some Barracuda.
They are still making Iron fist. They are just talking about doing a punisher series as well because they are so happy with the way he turned out in daredevil.
Hope we get to see Elektra's titties.
Lores Tyrell is Iron Fist, I wonder if he'll show up in this or they'll save them for Luke Cage.
Ironfist was a white guy named Daniel "Danny" Rand. He has Blonde hair, and green eyes.
Why does every martial artist have to default to an asian dude?
I'm trying to think why the studio would pick such an outspoken gay activist, and all I can think of is that Iron Fist will have his shirt off a lot, and they want that demo....
Everything has to come down to the SJW agenda on this board.
Iron Fist was considered problematic simply because he wasn't asian and yet was made to cash in on the kung-fu craze of the 70s in the same way that Power Man (Luke Cage) was to address blacksploitation films. Iron Fist doesn't need to have his costume off to show off his chest...
This is probably the first time I've had doubts, but since they've done well to date I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
Marvel gets the benefit of the doubt until they screw up. So far there has been zero tv to movie crossover, so if Iron Fist flops, 80% + aren't even going to notice. Then again, Agents of SHIELD doesnt back flow into the movies either. Guess you could say The Avengers knew where to find the scepter because of Coulson, but that's pretty minor. Hell they don't even know he's alive and probably never will. Didn't they say Defenders were not going to be in Infinity War?
That's not Jennifer Garner!
I think he will be a fine Punisher. He kind of had a good attitude in TWD but it pushed him into the villain role there and would kind of straddle the anti hero fence well in DD.
He looks like he is about to make Batman swallow his wang.
Just about every time it's been in your mouth. Weird.
That's the chick that played Jinx in GIJOE. I approve.
If the GI Joe movies got anything right, it was the chicks they cast. Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Elodie Yung, Adrianne Palicki.
I am soo bingeing the fuck out of this when it drops.. then being sad that I have to wait another year for more.
It gets released earlier in different regions? I thought Netflix releases shit at midnight PST across all regions. There's plenty of VPNS and smartDNS services that still work fine.
Just finished the 3rd episode, and this is some awesome shit. Bernthal is nailing it so far.
No sleep for me time to binge watch.
As an old school Punisher fan (Mike Zeck)..I like this representation of him so far. (4 episodes in)
First episode already annoyed the shit out of me. Frank Castle doesn't shoot up hospitals, and he sure as hell doesn't use a shotgun around innocent people. Please tell me they stop fucking this up as the season goes on...
The rest of it was great, but goddamn.

And which Frank Castle are you referring to because there are many versions in Marvel comics, and he shoots up everything..First episode already annoyed the shit out of me. Frank Castle doesn't shoot up hospitals, and he sure as hell doesn't use a shotgun around innocent people
What an assine comment to make.
FYI he talks about the hospital later....
There's only one Frank Castle.
I have to disagree with Frank wouldn't endanger innocents. The problem is essentially a comic book trope. Like "Hulk never hurt anyone on any of his rampages". in a comic book world, you can say ridiculous things like that. But in a "real" world, Frank can't exist and not endanger anyone.
Well this Daredevil, and Kingpin are severely under-powered compared to their comic book variants.I was more annoyed he beat Daredevil in a fist fight.. and more then once.
In the comics Frank fights with heroes all the time, but not hand to hand , and only if he has to.
I've seen him beat up Spider-man if he access to all his gear.
Goddamn Jessica is still so hot. Literally reading a newspaper, and the loins be surging.
Went to bed after they got to Elektra. Never really understood why people like that character was always just another spoiled rich girl that can fight cat women clone to me.
If you don't see the link between Catwomen and Batman and Daredevil and Elektra I don't know what to say because you're both clearly more blind than Daredevil.
Catwoman before the 90s wasn't a spoiled rich girl, either. She was like a stewardess before in one version and then a prostitute in a later version.
Like Harshaw said they both are morally ambiguous and have banged the hero at some point, but outside of that they're completely different.
Catwoman Origins - DC Database - Wikia
She went from no origin, to amnesia, to a battered wife.
She was always a wealthy jewel thief aka a self made spoiled rich girl when dealing with Bataman.

Give a 8/10 overall, some good stuff all around but definitely slow between ep 5-8ish.
Pretty sure you can't be self made and spoiled at the same time. Maybe you meant since was a battered wife she was spoiled in a rotten egg way?
Either way, their relationships are similar but outside of being super hero fuck buddies there's not much in common
I'm still working on s1 (mostly so I can hurry up and get to THE GODDAMN PUNISHER) and I'm already in love with how DD has to beat the everloving piss out of people before they stay down. Everyone was right, this is the best beat em up on tv. At times it reminds me of the over the top ending of The Raid with that goddamn midget that wouldn't go down. I want to yell at the guy to at least use brass knuckles or something until whatever point the dumbass finally starts using his batons.
This is a show for everyone who was annoyed when Black Widow knocked a dude out with her hair.

Frank "all women are whores" Miller responsible for prostitute Catwoman retcon, and Elektra entirely. which probably explains much of the confusion. if your memory of Catwoman is of a prostitute, you probably read the Frank Miller period. And Frank only writes one woman. And it doesn't matter if its Elektra, Catwoman, Wonder woman, etc.
Man the fight sequence in ep 3 was fucking great , very well done. So satisfied with this series and Jessica Jones , good stuff.
