All of the various story threads and all of the disparate characters established across multiple films will all come together to battle Thanos, the “Mad Titan” who has been watching from the sidelines since the events of The Avengers. Expect to see old standbys like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk team up with upcoming characters like Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther. Even the Guardians of the Galaxy are going to show up. These movies will encompass just about everyone.

Even though audiences are very well acquainted with the Marvel cinematic universe at this point, the television side of Marvel Studios is still in its early stages. So far only Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter and Daredevil have hit this small screen, and while the first series left something to be desired, they’ve certainly gotten better with each new show. But what does the future of Marvel television have in store, and how will it effect the cinematic universe?
If some new rumors are to be believed, we’ll see plenty of new characters end up in Marvel Studios TV shows, and that includes the likes of Black Widow, Hawkeye, The Punisher, Blade, Ghost Rider and maybe even The Hulk. Find out more after the jump! Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Everyone is still talking about The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Whether it’s Hulk’s best scene being cut out of the film or an abandoned subplot with Thor getting axed, there’s a lot to talk about regarding the Marvel Studios sequel. And while the chatter surrounding the Netflix series Daredevil has subsided, there are still fans eagerly awaiting the second season of the show who hope to see the forthcoming assembly of The Defenders take on another familiar Marvel character.
The Punisher is a force to be reckoned with in Marvel comics, and fans hope to see him battle Daredevil and The Defenders eventually. Undoubtedly, that would be a cool development. But even cooler is the prospect of seeing Tom Hardy as The Punisher. And it’s not entirely out of the question, because the actor just revealed that he would love to play the vigilante for Marvel.

But it sounds like some of the MCU’s upcoming small-screen stars will get the chance to crash the big-screen party. According to a new rumor, Netflix’s Defenders team will show up in an upcoming Avengers movie. After the jump, read up on the Defenders Avengers rumor. Plus, get an update on the Agent Carter renewal odds. Read More »
Marvel’s first Netflix show, Daredevil, will show up on the service April 10. And Marvel just cast Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones for AKA Jessica Jones and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. That may sound like those two shows are coming soon. Plus, there was a rumor that Jessica Jones would be out by the end of 2015. Unfortunately, the Chief Content Officer of Netfix, Ted Sarandos, doused those dreams a bit when he said audiences should expect new Marvel shows about a year apart.
Sarandos has since eased up on that window a bit but it sounds like you shouldn’t rush through Daredevil too fast because the wait could be long before we get to the final shows. Read more about the potential Marvel Netflix series release dates below. Read More »
