“No news, it doesn’t necessarily mean bad news”: After recently speculation that one of the series in the Marvel-Netflix deal could be traded, Jeph Loeb is now commenting on the still-planned series “Iron Fist.”
Since last Friday (November 20, 2015) fans can see Krysten Ritter as the tough and drinking superhero of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”, who has to deal with a very personal case in the first season of the series. Following “Marvel’s Daredevil,” which has been on Netflix since April 2015, the second of a total of four announced series of the Marvel-Netflix deal has begun, featuring another member of the “Defenders”: Mike Colter plays Luge Cage, who will launch his own series in 2016. While we’ve had the faces of three heroes for a long time, little is known about the fourth in the league. Recently it was even said that “Iron Fist” could be replaced by “The Punisher”. But Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel TV, has put an end to this speculation.
In an interview with Comic Resources He explained that the television adaptation of “Iron Fist” was still stagnant and he had never considered changing plans: “There has been a lot of speculation about what is going on with” Iron Fist “as fans have not heard of it. I had, but nothing changed. In fact, fans should be prepared for the news about the upcoming superhero series in the near future, because when asked about the upcoming casting announcements, Loeb replied, “The short answer is ‘yes, there will be news.’ According to Loeb, Marvel deliberately withheld “Iron Fist” to bring “Jessica Jones” to the fore, especially since her character is less known to the general public. “We knew exactly what we were doing at Marvel and Netflix,” says Loeb, “Let’s put” Jessica Jones “, everyone knows that” Luge Cage “is in the works. What I can say now is that we are looking forward to ‘Iron Fist’.
Until “Iron Fist”, the last of the “Defenders”, is introduced and we can look forward to concentrated superhero power, “Luke Cage” will be released in 2016. Also, “Daredevil” with Charlie Cox as a blind superhero is already in the works. second round, in which the title hero faces Jon Bernthal as The Punisher.
