Marvel TV Is Shutting Down With Production Folding Into Marvel Studios

The Marvel television that we have known for the past decade (yes, the same one that gave us the INHUMANS lol) is unfortunately shutting down.

This automatically leaves people to wonder what will happen to the upcoming four announced animated series headed over to Hulu, the upcoming HELSTROM as well as the last season of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.  will still be made. Everything will be folded into Marvel Studios.

“The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are currently in production, but not continue with any further development,” noted the TV division Tuesday. Layoffs are expected with the change in status for the once burgeoning small screen team, but not definite positions have been identified at present for the chop.

Things have been one blow after another for Marvel television. From the cancellation of the Marvel Shows at Netflix (DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE, IRON FIST, THE PUNISHER), the scrapping of GHOST RIDER and the cancellations of CLOAK AND DAGGER as well as the recent announcement of the end of RUNAWAYS. The writing was seemingly already on the walls and everything has finally played out the way it should.

With the set of Marvel Studios original shows set to hit Disney plus soon it is going to be interesting to see what happens.


Millie Bobby Brown to Star in Marvel's The Eternals Movie

Coming after a streaming viewer record breaking  debut weekend of season 3 of STRANGER THINGS on Netflix, one of its stars is seemingly headed next into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) has joined the cast of Marvel’s The Eternals, Variety reports. The actress will join the previously announced cast of Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Ma Dong-Seok and Salma Hayek. Details on Brown’s character have not yet been revealed.

Marvel is expected to make some major announcements during its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday, July 20th from 5:15pm-6:45pm. This will more than likely be one of them along with a full reveal of any other major cast members.

THE ETERNALS  is set to begin production later this year and will be directed by Chloe Zhoa.

Marvel’s ‘THE PUNISHER’ And ‘JESSICA JONES’ Have Been Cancelled By Netflix. JONES Third Season Still Will Air


“And then there were none”. Exactly a month after the launch of its second season on Netflix, Marvel’s The Punisher has officially been cancelled along with  Jessica Jones to officially end the run of all of the Marvel-Netflix originals. The completed third season of  Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter will still air later in the year but will be put on ice for good after that.

In speaking with Deadline, Netflix confirmed, “Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix”. They further added, “Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come,”

“In addition, in reviewing our Marvel programming, we have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones….We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognized by the Peabody Awards among many others”.

“We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning.”

The writings were on the wall with the cancellations of Iron Fist, Luke Cage and even more recently Daredevil only a few short weeks after its third season arrived in January. It also comes along with the announcement that there would not be a follow-up for the limited series The Defenders.

Bernthal took to Instagram this morning to offer a cryptic farewell of sorts:


CAPTAIN MARVEL Will Not Be Going To Netflix After Its Theatrical Run, Will Head To Disney Plus

When it was announced back in August 2017 that Disney would be ending its contract with Netflix, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before the next wave of Marvel Studios films would no longer be available on the streaming platform. During the Disney first quarters call it was revealed that Captain Marvel will be the first Marvel Studios film to premiere exclusively on Disney+(plus) Disney’s streaming platform.  It was not revealed when exactly Captain Marvel would premiere on the streaming service as it only hits theaters next month on March 8.

One thing Bob Iger did confirm is that the company has no plans to adjust the theatrical release window of its movies to get them on Disney+ any sooner.  Even though Captain Marvel will mark the official end of new Marvel films on Netflix, it’s unclear yet  what will happen to current MCU films on the service. Netflix currently offers subscribers access to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

First Look at JIGSAW From Marvel’s The Punisher Season Two

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Marvel

Earlier a teaser was released for the second season of Marvel’s The Punisher, along with we not only got the official release date but our first look at Ben Barnes (above) as the scarred up criminal nemesis to Frank Castle, Billy Russo known as Jigsaw. Now while we don’t see his face directly we do see the mask that he will wear as the character. Check it out below.

What are your thoughts on this version of Jigsaw?

Marvel’s THE PUNISHER Gets Release Date


Frank Castle is back to exact his brand of justice and revenge in the 2nd season of Marvel’s The Punisher. We did not know when the sophomore and potential final season would hit Netflix. We’ll now we have a day thanks to Netflix and Twitter.

January 18th and many people are speculating that shortly after it will be next in the line of the other Marvel TV shows that have already been cancelled. Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daredevil all have been announced as cancelled following the release of their follow up seasons. With The Punisher about to air there only leaves Jessica Jones to see if the wise-cracking, snarky detective will remain after her third season.

Marvel’s The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle a former marine who after his family is killed in a sting operation gone wrong exacts his revenge on any and everyone who was responsible.

Marvel’s THE PUNISHER Is Set To Come To Netflix In January

In a normal situation many would be BEYOND excited to find out when this will arrive for the viewing audience. But at the same time after seeing what has happened with Luke Cage, Iron Fist and now Daredevil  being cancelled it’s a bit difficult to not have a bit of sorrow blended with excitement.

Nonetheless Marvel has now officially announced that The Punisher season 2 will stream next month for 13 all-new episodes, though there is no specific date. Jon Bernthal will reprise the role of Frank Castle, a former marine who after surviving the brutal murder of his entire family, returns to exact revenge and punish all of those responsible. Bernthal will be be joined by fellow season 1 returnees Ben Barnes (Billy Russo), Amber Rose Revah (Dinah Madani), and Jason R. Moore (Curtis Hoyle). New cast additions to this season include Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim, Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, and Giorgia Whigham as Amy Bendix.

Take a look at the first footage below

DAREDEVIL Has Officially Been Cancelled After Three Seasons


Many people had a feeling that this move was on the horizon but to hear it officially makes it real and even kind of stings. Daredevil has officially been cancelled by Netflix after three seasons. If you remember last month Netflix had already cancelled both Luke Cage and Iron Fist.  This news comes from an exclusive in Deadline.

In a statement given by the streaming platform to Deadline, Netflix says, “Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix. We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note. We’re thankful to showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years. While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel.”

The timing of this is interested as it comes only one month after Daredevil returned with its new season after a long break. With this cancellation there are two more Marvel properties as Netflix series The Punisher and Jessica Jones. Both of which may also be on the chopping block as the Marvel TV run on the platform is nearing an end as Disney gears up for their own streaming service Disney+. As of now the two upcoming seasons of The Punisher and Jones  are set to run as currently scheduled.

The cancellation of Daredevil comes while there has been much talk of strained relations between Netflix and Marvel TV which became evident when the SVOD player abruptly pulled the plug on a third season of Luke Cage after the scripts had been written, and a formal renewal had been considered a foregone conclusion.

There is more that plays a part in the ending of the series. In addition to the inevitable “creative differences,” there also had been talk of the parties’ not being able to reach a deal. The Marvel shows on Netflix are costly to make, even with New York’s generous tax credits. Back in 2013, the streamer paid top dollar for the series that it doesn’t own. With the high cost, there has been pressure on the Marvel series to go above and beyond in performance and viewership. Which is something that was easier early on when they were among a handful of Netflix originals but is getting harder today as they compete more shows with an incredible amount of buzz that come to the network.

Additionally, Netflix and Marvel TV have been arguing over the season orders. Being part of the first wave of Netflix original series, all Marvel series have produced 13-episode seasons. But Netflix has since switched to seasons of 10 episodes and has been pressuring Marvel TV to switch to fewer episodes, which the company had been resisting.

But not to fret fans of the devil of Hell’s Kitchen there is one line in that statement by Marvel that offers some glimmer of hope, “the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel.”Hopefully this means we will see Matt Murdock appear on the big screen sometime soon.

Netflix Calls It Quits On Marvel’s Luke Cage


Almost a week ago to the day Netflix and Marvel announced that they had cancelled Iron Fist after two seasons, today Daredevil dropped it’s third season and now today the announcement had been made that they are cancelling the bulletproof hero of Harlem, Luke Cage.

CUnfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” said Marvel and the streaming service on Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”

Reports are coming out that the announcement even shocked showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker who was assembling together his writing team.

Rumors will soon begin to swirl as what this will mean for the collective Heroes For Hire (Luke Cage and Iron Fist) and will their shows see some type of resurgence on the upcoming Disney streaming platform.
