Daredevil Reboot Rumored To Be Coming To FX

Ever since Netflix wiped the slate clean of their Marvel TV shows earlier this year, viewers have been pleading for some other network to renew the Defenders series – Daredevil, in particular. Now, a new rumor has surfaced which might please fans of the Man Without Fear in general but not those loyal to the Charlie Cox version, as it’s said that a reboot is on the way at FX.

To begin with, Cosmic Book News had previously reported that they’ve heard that reboots for all the Netflix properties are coming soon, this time with explicit connections to the McU. And just the other day, scoopster Tvo of the Lords of the Long Box YouTube channel followed up on that by telling us over on Twitter that Daredevil and co. will be redeveloped by FX in a way that makes it all connected.

“Going forward all platforms will crossover.

Marvel Television Was "Blindsided" by Netflix Cancellations

In a true twist of fate, Netflix opted to put the entire Netflix-Marvel TV slate out to pasture this year. 

The decision did not sit well with fans who wanted the universe to continue. The franchise as a whole was mostly well-received, with Iron Fist being the only series to initially take a beating from critics. 

Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb has opened up about the controversial decision and suggested that Marvel TV as a whole was "blindsided."

"The hardest part was while the situation at Netflix of which I really can't go into other than to say that we were blindsided and the things that were to come weren't finished yet," Loeb revealed in an interview with Deadline which was published Monday.

Marvel Television felt “blindsided” by Netflix cancellations

Marvel Television boss Jeph Loeb has stated that the studio felt “blindsided” by Netflix’s decision to cancel their library of Marvel television shows The Defenders, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher.

“The hardest part was while the situation at Netflix of which I really can’t go into other than to say that we were blindsided and the things that were to come weren’t finished yet,” Loeb told Deadline during an interview. “We weren’t ready to announce that, so there was this space in between it, so it did look like maybe we were going to go out. Then suddenly, we were arising again like the Phoenix.”

While the prospect of any of the Netflix shows being revived appears remote at this point in time, Marvel Television has since announced a number of new shows for the Disney-owned Hulu, including an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel TV Head Says They Were Blindsided By Netflix Cancellations

While most people know Marvel for the films they’ve put out recently, they also have a whole smattering of offerings on the smaller screen. Netflix had five big guns in the forms of Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Daredevil, The Punisher and Luke Cage. All save for ol’ Fistboy were received fairly well and we even got to see most of them team up in The Defenders, which I hear was…okay? In any case, many fans were shocked when the shows were cancelled in a relatively short timespan.

It wasn’t only us viewers who were taken by surprise though, as the studio was also caught off-guard. Marvel Television chief Jeph Loeb sat down with Deadline the other day to talk about the current state of Marvel TV, and the subject quickly moved towards the subject of the sudden ending of the fan favorite Netflix shows.

Marvel TV Boss Jeph Loeb On Secret ABC Series, Disney+, ‘Legion’ End, More Crossovers, ‘Ghost Rider’ & Hulu Plans

  • Deadline
Exclusive: “When we start thinking about our shows, it’s how do we do better than we did the last time,” declares Marvel Television’s chief Jeph Loeb as the small screen arm of the comic cyclopean heads into a new hydra (no pun totally intended) of offerings. “We will never be a factory. We don’t know how to be a factory. There is no Marvel prototype.”

Certainly, as the last year has seen the end of Daredevil, Iron Fist, Punisher, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones on Netflix, the series finale of Legion tonight and the conclusion of ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the next year or so, as Deadline exclusively reported last month, Marvel TV is looking for new worlds to conquer – or more like galaxies according to the Evp and multi-Eisner Awards winner.

Former Spider-Man Star Being Eyed To Play Marvel’s Moon Knight

Like Captain America’s super strength or Iron Man’s intellect, Marvel Studios has the incredible superpower to turn even the most unknown comic book characters into box office juggernauts. It’s not like Drax the Destroyer, the Winter Soldier, or even the Mad Titan Thanos were that well known outside of comic shops before their appearances in the McU, but today, they’re household names, marketed on backpacks and billboards around the world.

Now, it sounds like Disney is hoping to make a star out of Moon Knight, one of the darker heroes from the comics’ lore. According to our sources – the same ones who told us that the actual Mandarin will show up in Shang-Chi and that Taskmaster will be the main antagonist in Black WidowMarvel is actively developing a Moon Knight project, though it’s unknown at the moment whether it will be a feature film or streaming series.

ABC & Marvel TV In Talks About A New Series Focusing On A “Mostly Brand-New” Female Superhero

The slow-bleeding death of the Marvel-Netflix partnership earlier this year may have irked fans with the subsequent cancellations of “Daredevil,” “Luke Cage,” “Punisher,” “Iron Fist,” and “Jessica Jones”—all semi-well-regarded shows— but those looking to get their small-screen superhero fix, have reason to be excited about the future.

Along with the shows recently announced as part of Marvel’s Phase 4 —the first of which, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” is expected to premiere on the world’s new favorite streaming service Disney+ in the fall of 2020— the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected to continue its ancillary network TV presence as well.

Marvel Multiverse Easter Egg Discovered in Avengers: Endgame

  • MovieWeb
The Avengers: Endgame Easter Eggs are starting to flood in after the digital release last week. Some of the hidden tidbits have been bigger than others and Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are even finding continuity mistakes now. However, this time around, an eagle-eyed fan has discovered a clever nod to the Marvel Comics multiverse, which has been teased in other movies from within the McU over the years. This one is definitely a blink-and-you-miss-it type of situation, but it was very much done on purpose.

The latest Endgame Easter Egg can be found when Scott Lang makes his way back from the Quantum Realm through the van portal. At the end of the Ant-Man and the Wasp, Lang was stuck in the bizarre world where time works differently after Thanos' mighty snap. The van and the rest of Lang's belongings are all in storage at the start of Endgame, which

Marvel’s Reportedly Planning To Reboot The Heroes For Hire In The McU

It’s been a bittersweet year for diehard Marvel Studios fans. Within the past seven months, the House of Ideas gave the world Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, each a billion-dollar grossing movie that served to expand the corners of the McU. However, fans of the more street-level heroes took a hit when the studio pulled the plug on their final Netflix series Jessica Jones and The Punisher, bringing what remained of The Defenders to an early end.

We heard earlier this week though that the McU wasn’t yet finished with the team, with a Daredevil reboot allegedly already in the works. Now, it sounds like revamped versions of Luke Cage and Iron Fist are on the way, too.

Cosmic Book News has heard from their source that the studio plans to reboot both characters in a Heroes For Hire project. While it’s currently

The Flickering Myth Reaction to Marvel’s Phase Four slate

The Flickering Myth writers share their thoughts on Marvel Studios’ Phase Four slate…

The Infinity Saga is over, and this past Saturday Marvel Studios unveiled its plans for the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at San Diego Comic-Con, revealing that Phase Four will consist of Black Widow, Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder, not to mention the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If…? and Hawkeye.

It’s a packed two-year slate that will take us through to Phase Five in 2022, but is is strong enough to keep the studio’s incredible success story going, or is the Marvel bubble in danger of bursting? Here’s what our writing team make of the latest announcements…

Comic-Con: From ‘Shang-Chi’ To ‘Birds Of Prey’, Asian Americans Are More Than Ready For Their Close-up In Superhero Movies

  • Deadline
We are days away from Marvel taking the coveted dais of Hall H to give us news on what we hope is Phase 4 of their wildly expansive — and box office record-breaking — Marvel Cinematic Universe. Arguably one of the most anticipated announcements is who would be playing the lead in Shang-Chi, which will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and written by Dave Callaham (both of Asian heritage). It would be the first Asian-fronted superhero film from a major U.S. studio.

In addition to Shang-Chi, the comic book movie powerhouse has tapped The Rider‘s Chloe Zhao to direct The Eternals and Kumail Nanjiani is circling a role in that film. Over at DC, the Harley Quinn spinoff Birds of Prey will be helmed by Cathy Yan, with Ella Jay Basco starring as Cassandra Cain. DC may not be in San Diego for Comic-Con this year, but with Marvel in the room,

Marvel’s Kevin Feige plays coy on the future of The Defenders

With the third season of Jessica Jones bringing the curtain down on Netflix’s Marvel universe, fans of The Defenders now face an anxious wait for news on the future of the street-level heroes.

So far, the only character that Marvel has suggested will return is that of Daredevil, with the press release for the show’s cancellation promising more “adventures” from the Man Without Fear at some point in the future. However, during an interview with Bet, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige played coy when asked if we can expect to see the likes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Punisher again.

“I don’t know,” said Feige. “There were a lot of great characters that were on those Netflix series, and I think there is a period of time…it’ll be a while before we could use any of them based on what the contracts were,

Netflix Could Lose The Defenders And Daredevil

There has been speculation that Marvel shows like The Defenders and Daredevil could be leaving Netflix. The recent disappearance of episodes of Chelsea Handler’s talk show from the streaming platform is leading ComicBook.com to worry about a cull of other series. While Netflix have a stake in the Marvel shows, their future on the platform may not be guaranteed as Disney ramp up their own streaming service.

We think these worries aren’t entirely unreasonable, given how Netflix have abruptly cancelled plans for new runs of Iron Fist (probably for the best), and Luke Cage. While the Marvel/Netflix series have been a mixed bag, at their best they’ve carved out an identity distinct from other comic book properties. The most recent seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher also show that there’s still plenty of creative juice in those series, as well as ample material for binge watching.

Deadpool 3 May Feature A Familiar Villain

We’re at that exciting point in the Disney/Fox merger aftermath where nobody exactly knows what’s going on with all of the major franchise characters Marvel Studios just received, but the possibilities still seem endless. While it may be a while before we see Magneto or the Human Torch pop up in the McU, Disney has made it clear that some form of a Deadpool 3 is going to happen sooner rather than later, and now we’re slowly learning details about the Merc’s next adventure.

Sources close to We Got This Covered have shed some light on the Regenerating Degenerate’s first Disney movie, and it sounds like it’s going to be sick. That’s because Marvel is thinking about having Typhoid Mary be one of the film’s primary antagonists. Originally appearing in the comics as a Daredevil villain, the alter ego of Mary

Krysten Ritter Shuts Down ‘Jessica Jones’ Revival Talk: ‘I Don’t Think So’

Krysten Ritter Shuts Down ‘Jessica Jones’ Revival Talk: ‘I Don’t Think So’
Netflix debuted the final season of “Jessica Jones” on June 14 and with it said goodbye to its long-running Marvel franchises. The streaming giant pulled the plug on every Netflix-Marvel series over the last several months, including “Daredevil,” “The Punisher,” “Iron Fist,” and “Luke Cage.” Many fans have been wondering if these shows or characters might live on, perhaps on Disney’s upcoming streaming platform Disney+, but “Jessica Jones” star Krysten Ritter says that probably won’t be the case for her superhero.

“Do I think I’ll play her again? I don’t think so,” Ritter told TVLine. “I feel like I’ve played her, you know? I feel really good about it. I feel good about closing the door.”

“Jessica Jones” showrunner Melissa Rosenberg expressed a similar thought, telling TVLine, “I feel like this is a really complete, closed chapter. I mean, never say never. But I feel ready to tell all new stories.
