Iron Fist season 2 Comic-Con

Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, opened the Iron Fist season 2 panel at San Diego Comic-Con International with carefully crafted phrasing: “How do we top the martial arts from Season 1 in Season 2?” The question politely encapsulates a major criticism that many had with the first season of Iron Fist: the fighting (and the story) sucked.

Marvel and Netflix appear to have taken that criticism to heart. The series has benefited from a new showrunner, Raven Metzner, as well as the addition of Clayton Barber, a fight coordinator whose credits include Creed and Black Panther. In addition to the new behind-the-scenes players, the panel also included Finn Jones (Danny Rand), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and, as a surprise late addition to the event, Alice Eve, who is playing (wait for it…) Typhoid Mary.

The group, steered by Jeph’s bombastic interview style, provided an entertaining show. But the real stars of the panel were the exclusive clips Loeb shared of the season to come. Here is a run-down of the Iron Fist season 2 Comic-Con footage, with each clip working hard to convince Marvel fans to give Iron Fist another chance. Read More »

Everybody who is anybody wants their own streaming service these days. Including…Walmart? The multinational retail corporation is apparently considering getting into the streaming game, with plans to launch their own streaming service to rival Netflix and Amazon. This is strange, but I guess it’s also not to be completely unexpected in this day and age. Which surprising entity will launch a streaming service yet, I wonder? Perhaps Outback Steakhouse?

DirecTV Now Prices

There are plenty of options out there for customers looking to cut the cord with their local cable provider. One of the more popular options out there is DirecTV Now. It’s one of the more reasonably priced packages that doesn’t require a contract with a cable company, but that price will go up slightly towards the end of this month.

Following AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner for $85 million, it looks like the company needs to make some of that money back, because they’re raising the price of all their subscription packages by $5. But if you sign up now, you can still get the lower price for a limited time. Read More »
