:twisted: Usually I go into these projects with a bit of apprehension or belayed excitement so as not to get disappointed. This time I did not. I was elated from the onset, and knew that this was the chance to bring the MCU into the adult world of comic/live action while still being connected to the rest of the PG stuff.

I was not let down, and was impressed by the balance that this new series had accomplished. I may have a criticism here and there once I watch the series again, but as far as I'm concerned, the MCU productions so far can do no wrong.

I would love to see more of the Kingpin of course.
Casting was far better than expected for him.
Could have been fatter though. :x


With that being said, how do they plan to cross-over characters from network to network to film and so on? Lots of apprehension there.

I went into this show expecting nothing (my standards for live action comic book movies/tv shows is extremely low), but I was greatly surprised with this one. The writing is good, the acting is good, and the action is great. The second episode has a scene that reminds me of the movie "Old Boy" (if you have seen it, you know what I am talking about). I am only halfway through the first season because my wife found it to be a bit too gory for one sitting. I also agree that the casting of The Kingpin was wonderfully done, and I love that they made him into a force to be reckoned with (both physical and tactical).

I wish Marvel Studios would just buy back the rights to the X Men, so they can make a Captain America and Logan World War II movie just as dark as this tv show.

That is not a problem. Disney owns Marvel Studios and ABC, thus moving actors around is not a problem. Plus, they are probably only "leasing" the show to Netflix, thus Marvel Studios can move their people around at will.

Well MCU got back the rights to use Spider-Man, re-acquired the Fantastic 4, but their $5 billion offer for Wolverine was turned down so it doesn't look like we'll get that lucky.

As for the cross-overs and new introductions, there seems to be confirmation of Luke Cage and Iron fist getting their own series. MCU is actually making offers to all networks yet still retaining the rights to the characters so they can still cross over the lines without any issues. They should just make their own network at this point.

Oh and the Oldboy fight scene... :o long fight with no cut scenes = freaking awesome. Onk bak 2 style

I saw that NeFlix had this in my suggestion area. I plan on watching when I get the time. Just two thing though, what is MCU and PG?

MCU = Marvel Cinematic Universe

PG = Parental Guidance (I'm in Canada and our PG is the US's PG 13.

:o

Yes! While watching Daredevil I thought that it would be great if Luke Cage and Ironfist were (often) recurring characters, but them getting their own show is even better!

Cage's wife Jessica Jones already has the series done and is out on Netfilx fairly soon. I'm not sure on what formula they are using, but it should be interesting.

Even though you won't see these characters mingle with the big screen class, it's the fact that the Universe is the common factor and they can at least talk about each other, or make references.

I wonder how long it will be before people are playing Six Degrees of MCU?

I still do not believe that moving the characters around would be that big of a deal. The lady that played Lady Sif has guest starred in two Agents of Shield episodes and the guy that played Tony Stark’s father guest starred in about half of Agent Carter. Thus, I think Marvel Studios knows what they are doing and how to move their people around to get the scenes they want.
