    Jeremy Renner said over the weekend he would open to bringing Hawkeye to Netflix.

    I would be open to watching that.

    I think the Avenger who would best fit in with the dark Netflix tone is Black Widow but I would also be happy with Hawkeye.

    I liked the nods in Daredevil to the dangers/morality of vigilantism, feeds nicely into CW thematically.

    I would love to see this, especially if they were to base it off Matt Fraction's run. It'd also be a great way to introduce Kate Bishop to the MCU. Don't see it happening but it would be lots of fun.

    Black Widow series would be cool too, seeing as a movie is not on the table anytime soon. Or a Hawkeye & Black Widow series.

    More chance of Renner doing a series than Johansson to be honest.

    Although, it has to be said, I'm watching Agent Carter on Fox UK at the moment and there's a big Black Widow origin angle being played on that show.

    Wasn't sure how they'd be able to big up Luke Cage more than from Jessica Jones but that was pretty cool :)

    5 days until Luke Cage and some reviews are saying it may be Netflix's strongest Marvel show.

    Will Luke Cage be up at midnight?

    Nah. Can't remember the exact time but it'll be up at midnight in one of the American time zones if I'm not mistaken...

    Usually about 5 am our time they drop.

    Luke Cage is on Netflix now, just watched the 1st episode.
    Overall I liked it.

    Are we allowed to talk about it here? I prefer this forum :D

    I do too! ;)

    Absolutely chat away about Luke Cage here. IMO, it's probably marvel's second strongest season after Daredevil S1. Probably not far behind it though.

    I honestly preferred it to both Daredevil and Jessica Jones (as much as I loved both of those)...

    I had some issues with the second half of the season, but overall I loved it. The score and soundtrack was fantastic.

    Second half really dragged it down imo. The villain was so bad, nothing on Kilgrave or Fisk.

    For me DD S1 > JJ > DD S2 > LC.

    I LOVED the first half. Everything about it. The dual villain thing was new, the threat of this hidden overlord was interesting, the music was amazing and damn my privileged arse but I actually felt I learned a thing or two about how black America feels.

    SPOILERS below...
    I thought the second half fell off a cliff. When it looked like we were doing a descent into madness thing for Mariah Dillard, I was all in; however Diamondback felt completely out of place.

    I appreciate they were trying to evolve him into the Serpent Society character, but man that costume didn't look good (although there's probably an in canon reason for that- Hammer's work is supposed to be inferior and shoddier than Stark's).

    Still, better than about 90% of what you get on tv.

    I've only watched two episodes, so not a great sample to gauge an entire series, but so far it has been leaps and bounds better than Daredevil series 2, the low watermark for Netflix Marvel IMO. But then it started off strong as well before diving off a cliff so who knows.

    Yeah the Punisher stuff in DD season 2 was all great, especially the episode with the two of them on the rooftop, but overall DD season 2 was a bit weak.

    I'd go DDS1 > JJ > LC > DDS2. I enjoyed Luke Cage a lot
    though the villains all paled in comparison to Fisk/Kilgrave with maybe the exception of Shades who was one of the stars of the show for me. The constant blaxploitation music was jarring in some places too. It was still a great show, but just felt weaker than DD & JJ.

    Catched up with Luke Cage over the last 4 days and it just reaffirms my opinion that what Netflix and Marvel is doing is the finest thing happening on both the small and big screen within the genre.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,867 ✭✭✭ Tazzimus


    Watched Luke Cage on my week off last week, pretty cool I thought.
    Haven't actually watched Jessica Jones yet, is it worth a watch?

    The theme song for LC is pretty catchy too I thought.

    I preferred JJ, David Tennent was fantastic!

    I'm seeing all this unadulterated lurve for Luke Cage and I'm kinda surprised, I really thought it took a nosedive post episode 7!

    Definitely thought Ms Jones and DD season 1 were superior (although there is plenty to love in Luke Cage).
