The Netflix contingent of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is rapidly expanding, and fans are on the edges of their seats waiting to see how all of the small-screen Marvel superheroes will get together in the forthcoming "The Defenders" crossover miniseries.
The new season of "Daredevil," the first Marvel Entertainment superhero series made available on Netflix, marks the debut of Marvel Comics characters Elektra (Elodie Yung) and The Punisher (Jon Bernthal). And while Season 1 served as sort of a gauge for the Marvel/Netflix partnership, Season 2 now belongs to a wider small-screen Marvel universe and will begin to set up the "Defenders" series. Since the first season of "Daredevil" premiered, "Jessica Jones" also aired its first season and is now gearing up for its second, "Luke Cage" is in production, and "Iron Fist" and "The Defenders" are in development.
"Daredevil" Season 2 showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez recently talked to ComicBook.com about how "The Defenders" has affected their approach to Season 2. "It's definitely opened doors," Petrie said. The "Daredevil" boss also revealed that he and Ramirez, as well as the show's writers and cast, have gotten really good at "how to be collaborative." more >>
The CW's popular post-apocalyptic teen drama "The 100" premiered its third season last week, revealing Murphy (Richard Harmon) reunited with Jaha (Isaiah Washington), Bellamy (Bob Morley) with a new love interest, Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) butting heads with Lincoln (Ricky Whittle), Raven (Lindsey Morgan) facing off with Abby (Paige Turco), and Jasper (Devon Bostick) steadily descending into madness. Meanwhile, Clarke (Eliza Taylor), looking more feral than ever, has been on the run since the tragic events at Mount Weather, with bounty hunters at her heels. The episode ended with one of those hunters, Roan (Zach McGowan), a resident of the Ice Nation, capturing her.
"The 100" showrunner Jason Rothenberg talked to The Hollywood Reporter about the Season 3 premiere and revealed that this new threat may be worse than The Tree People from Season 2. "Ice Nation is hardcore," Rothenberg said. "They are much more overtly violent and will solve their problems that way."
Meanwhile, as strange as seeing a whole episode of "The 100" with Clarke totally separated from her family and friends may have been, Rothenberg revealed that his original idea for the Season 3 debut episode was even stranger. Speaking to TVLine, the executive producer said, "My initial thought was, 'Wouldn't it be interesting if Clarke never even showed up in the first episode until the very end?'" more >>
