Yes, saw that announcement too. 18 episodes! Just disappointed that we have to wait until 2024 to see it. Now, just need a Jessica Jones announcement… and at least some hints about Luke, Punisher, Danny… I wonder if David Tennant would be up for reprising his role as well?
Re: Wrecking Crew -
It… could be? Some quick googling … seems to point that way.
Interesting since their first appearance was… in The Defenders comic…
I’d rather see the MCU keep moving forward, and the Kingpin is already in play at the MCU’s street level; we never actually saw him shot by Echo — much less die — at the end of Hawkeye, after all. And she’s getting a series, so the issue can’t be left unaddressed.
True, I guess my only thought is that if it’s a soft reboot, NMCU being a different Earth in the multiverse, I’m wondering how much backstory there will be to her character in the D+ MCU verse? How different they may make it?
If Killgrave existed in this verse, and JJ has any flashbacks, or the audience sees flashbacks to past events at some point, it’d be nice to at least have the same voice. I don’t think Disney can improve on Tennant’s performance with anyone else? He’s as part of that character moving forward as Cox and Ritter are to theirs? Killgrave doesn’t need to be alive and roaming around in the current timeline, better if he isn’t, and we get new stories. Just there as part of the character continuity?
I’m genuinely cautiously optimistic and excited to see what comes from it all… And, even if the Darth Mickey manages to blow it, still can watch the NetflixMCU versions.
And in case anyone was wondering why there was no mention of the Batgirl movie at SDCC:
Given the reported level of completion (audience test screenings!), I’m fairly confident that it will eventually leak in some form (e.g. Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four (1994), Justice League of America (1997)). Though it might take a while…
I don’t do a lot of TV/streaming series, I’m more a movie guy, so a lot of that slips right by me, but I just put a hold on the first season DVD from the library. So, thanks for putting it on my radar.
