What Cloak & Dagger Needs (To Do) To Succeed

Marvel Television, unlike their stablemates at Marvel Studios are very hit and miss as far as translating their characters goes. So far–when they’ve dealt with ‘street-level’ characters like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, they’ve been relatively successful. The problems arise when they try to tackle characters that exist is a more […]

Luke Cage Season 2 – Teaser Trailer

While I don’t think that it’s disputable that Marvel on Netflix has upped the ante on superheroes on television immensely that’s not for a moment to imply that there aren’t problems. The biggest of which (in my eyes) is that no matter the series–Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones or Luke Cage–they never seem to quite […]

This November, Marvel and Netflix Unleash The Punisher

Marvel’s The Punisher will premiere November 17, which we didn’t learn during Marvel Television’s presentation at the 2017 New York Comic-Con because if never actually happened.

The first movie was in 1978, with Dolph Lundgren as Frank Castle/The Punisher.  It was okay, though […]

Inhumans – Trailer 2

The Defenders – Trailer 2

Marvel Television, as far as I can tell, is in a bind entirely of their own making. While I enjoy the series that have done thus far–with a particular emphasis on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.–I do feel a certain reluctance on their parts to embrace the fantastic wholeheartedly (which is an interesting, though odd, problem […]
