Although I mostly like Daredevil and I was quite fond of Luke Cage, Jessica Jones remains the crown jewel of the Marvel Netflix shows. The series is a real “Best of Both Worlds” situation, combining Daredevil‘s knack for stylish action with Luke Cage‘s keen attention to location and character. And it does while also being very much its own thing with its own unique perspective that also fits snugly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I loved it.
Of course, one of the reasons Jessica Jones feels so fresh is that it’s the rare Marvel story built entirely around a female lead and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and her team leaned heavily on this fact, offering a first proper look at the MCU through the eyes of a woman. And now, the upcoming second season of the show is looking to double down on this angle as every single episode will be helmed by a female director.

In the next few years, the two most anticipated comic book movies on the docket seem to be The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers 4. Certainly Justice League is near the top of the list as well, but there has been so much of a bigger lead-up to these sequels in the Marvel cinematic universe that the anticipation is that much higher. Now Kevin Feige might be teasing another reason that this Marvel movie could be the most exciting one yet.
In a recent interview with Kevin Feige, making the rounds in anticipation of the arrival of Doctor Strange, discussion turned to The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers: Untitled. In addition to reiterating why the titles of the movie changed so that they’re not each one part of the same story, there may be the vaguest of hints that we’ll see The Defenders in The Avengers sequels in the works.

Everyone involved in Avengers: Infinity War has pretty much dashed all hopes of seeing some of Marvel’s television heroes on the big screen in the upcoming epic crossover event film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Marvel television head Jeph Loeb have both cited off the list of reasons why it probably wouldn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean it won’t.
In a new interview, Infinity War filmmakers the Russo Brothers give fans some hope that Netflix’s The Defenders (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) could still appear. Could we see Marvel’s tv heroes in Infinity War? They also again confirm that Brie Larson will appear in the film as Captain Marvel. Find out what they had to say, after the jump.

Netflix’s little corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to expand in a big way, with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders all coming in the next year or so. But today, we have some updates on what we won’t be seeing from them in the near future. The company has revealed that they’re holding off on Jessica Jones season 2, Daredevil season 3, and Punisher until after The Defenders, which means we likely won’t see them until 2018 or so. Oh, and they’ve also explained why they opted not to pick up Agent Carter, which became the MCU’s first cancelled series earlier this summer. Read More »
Who said you need something as silly as footage featuring actors and such to put together a trailer? The first teaser trailer for The Defenders was revealed at Marvel and Netflix‘s Comic-Con panel earlier today, giving all of the superhero junkies in the crowd their first taste of the miniseries that will see Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage team up.
