Raven Metzner who is the showrunner for Iron Fist Season 2 will be here on /r/Marvelstudios for an AMA on Thursday Sept 20th, 1pm PST.
He seems pretty excited for this (also said he saw Tom Pelphrey's AMA that we had the other week and it looked fun :P)
As always please try to think up some interesting and original questions and use this opportunity well!
P.S Here is the wiki page we have for all our past AMAs just if youre interested.
In TV and Movies a lot, adversaries just hate each other and that's it. They don't try to work things out. They just kill each other.
I loved that they tried to sit down and work things out. It felt real and genuine and that they really wanted to understand and make things better.
A while back I made a post pertaining to this same topic.
Between then and now, I've heard that the budgets on subsequent seasons of The Defenders shows have not increased-at least, not to a significant extent.
Netflix has the money to do it. You only need to look at Altered Carbon (70 million over 10 episodes), The Crown (100 million pounds for season 1 and season 2 had literally double that), The Get Down, Marco Polo, and just announced Avatar The Last Airbender (better have a gigantic budget if it wants to work on an even basic level).
I understand filming in NY is expensive and chews up the costs, but these shows should be the crown jewels for Netflix. Having a stake in the MCU on any level isn't an opportunity to take lightly.
Also, who said it isn't a good idea to branch out of New York for a change?
I say each series should be given 70-100 million USD as a budget.
Do they mean he might come off as a sort of geek murderer type? A Jeffrey Dahmer if you will? Feeling awkward around people. I mean it could work, and would make the character very interesting if done right. They could take the origin where his Dad was an alcoholic and have him go through life like a non sexual Dahmer. I think that could work well
Really puts the Netflix shows into an odd position.
What does Feige want with Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and other street level heroes? Will the shows eventually be run on the Disney Service (which would be weird due to the no R-rati rule... But things change)
Does this give credence to the rumor that the Disney Fox merger is allowing Marvel TV to reconfigure under Marvel Studios? Marvel Studios alone is producing this, but you gotta wonder: Why would they be doing this when they've already got so much on their plate?
It's also convenient timing... Jim Chory left Marvel TV and has not yet been replaced as far as I know. Additionally, could this be why Luke Cage is lagging on renewal??
Will this be the new home of The Defenders?
Winter Soldier series when?
With NYCC getting closer and closer, the closer we'll get to knowing how Matt's return from the dead will be handled. It'd be nice to have an exact timeframe as to how long he'll have been gone, but they won't give any exact dates to allow for leeway.
From that last image we saw of Matt in the convent, it was hard to tell how badly injured he might be. He did look battered, but he still looked in better shape than say, what he looked like after his fight with Fisk and Nobu in the warehouse in Daredevil season 1.
The teaser is hard to decipher, given how in that "before" and "after" video I linked a few days ago, Charlie Cox suggested that the teaser dialogue was taken out of context and that's from later in the season. But at any rate, it does seem like Matt will be out of commission for a while, while being in the care of his mother. It'd have to be a few months at minimum (I doubt he could be absent for a full year)
As for how long it takes him to get back to Hell's Kitchen, well, I doubt that they'll have him stay hidden from Karen and Foggy for more than two episodes. Matt needs people he can have conversations with. Not to mention, we know Born Again will be one of the major sources of inspiration for season 3, and a big theme of that story was that Fisk went after Matt's civilian life, so I feel Matt does need to have that rebuilt somewhat so that he has something that's at stake for when Fisk begins gunning for him. (I think it's more likely that Karen and Foggy won't find out together, but rather, I think Karen will learn first because, if anything, I think there's more development needed for Matt's relationship with Karen than his friendship with Foggy; since Matt hasn't been privy to Karen's more impressive moments while she hasn't gotten enough of a window to understand his Daredevil side since he retired from Daredeviling not too long after he revealed his secret to her. Having Karen learn about Matt's return first would be a great way to handle that.)
Hey guys, me and my SO are interested in watching the whole lot of Marvel Series on Netflix. I’m really looking forward to it but I’m looking for some advice as to in which order we should watch them?
Also, I had seen some negative comments about one of the series on this subreddit too, and it almost put me off watching all of them. I’m looking for some reassurance I guess that I won’t regret starting this universe!
Thanks a bunch in advance! :)
Probably unpopular opinion, but I think it’s just as good as season 1. It took me awhile to get to it because I was a little disappointed with Season 2 of Daredevil, but I really enjoyed Jessica Jones second season. I didn’t find it slow in it’s first half and thought it was massively entertaining throughout. What does everyone think of it?
I’ll be the first to say that the fight scenes were really well done and super clean, but besides maybe the Davos vs Danny flashback, none of them were really all that memorable to me. This series definitely needs something akin to the hallway or staircase battle from Daredevil. All of the fights looked similar and kind of blended together.
Another problem I have is that it didn’t really feel like Kung fu, just brawling. Realistically I understand that Danny is taking a more efficient no nonsense approach to fighting guys on the streets but I feel like there should be more forms and stances that look like kung fu, martial arts style is one of the only things that ensure he’s not just daredevil that can see. The security guard fight from season 1 episode 1 of Iron fist was perfect because of that, I wanna see Danny straight up redirecting people, using their own force against them and doing some Ip man type stuff. That hallway fight from season 1 was also cool because it actually looked like kung fu (not very good looking kung fu but you know what I mean) and not just a one two punch combo that we could get from Daredevil.
Now this isn’t to say that the fights didn’t look like Kung fu at all because I noticed the way Danny was blocking attacks and a few of the kicks he did looked like Kung fu, but I felt it could have been more.
So all in all, still a fantastic season and the fights looked great, but could use some more good ole fashioned kung fu and more memorable fight scenes in my opinion.
