Cool. Glad someone agrees. (or should I do )

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Sounds like a good idea to me. I like flashbacks in these kinds of stories. It's a good way to explore a characters pasts, without endless expositionary dialogue, or causing the present storyline to grind to a halt. Just do a few flashback scenes every episode, and you can work out the character's past, and move a present day story forward.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Yeah, that's my idea. Presumably, since Elektra will be involved, that's another set of flashbacks from the same comic ready to go. Seriously, these episodes write themselves

One thing I'm wondering is if 13 episodes is even enough for Daredevil. I'm curious which of his enemies will even make an appearance. Obviously Bullseye. I expect Kingpin (I also think Kingpin will be the overarching enemy for the Defenders as well). Elektra will be a quasi-villain before she changes sides. Can we fit in Typhoid Mary (with Elektra being there, I don't want "Matt Murdock, helpless in love" as too big a theme)? I could see a quick introduction of Purple Man, although he's probably more for Jessica Jones. Anyone else you'd really like to see?

I would actually wait for the theoretical season 2 (Post-Defenders) to bring in Elektra.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

I'm doubtful there will be one. Certainly, anything is possible, but we're talking about episode 61 or so before that's the case. This project seems more "event" based than season-based.

Although I wouldn't resurrect Elektra until season 2 were they to make a season 2.

That's probably just hedging their bets -- they're starting out planning for just one season in case it doesn't go beyond that, but if the ratings are good and they can make more money by doing a second season, then they certainly will do a second season. Although if some of the shows do better than others, we may not get renewals for all four. Maybe one would be cancelled and another would take its place in the next season.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

At the same time, would you save Elektra for a hypothetical second season that may never come? I could see saving Typhoid Mary (although it would be a shame) or someone like that, but I can't see not having her.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

What if Jennifer Garner said that she would pick up the role after she's given birth later this year?

Just because a different company made her Daredevil movie, it doesn't mean that Jenny still couldn't play Elektra again, as long as she doesn't reference her previous movies in any way.

I'm not sure I want Jennifer Gardner. I have nothing against her, but also no reason to want her. She didn't particularly impress me (these sentences describe the movie as a whole, come to think of it).

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

There's no way in hell that Marvel is going to want to remind audiences of the unsuccessful Daredevil and Elektra movies by casting Garner. They're going to want this to be a clean break.

Besides, Garner is 41 now. Given Hollywood's double standards, I doubt they'd be willing to cast an action/romantic lead older than her early 30s.

1. Thank you for giving me this woman. After I've scrubbed all the Affleck off her, she'll make a fine addition to my house hold.

2. Daredevil was terrible, Elektra was meh, but I loved Alias.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. If it works, Series 2 might be:
Daredevil
Power Man & Iron Fist
Punisher
Elektra


and then if they wanted to bring things full circle, they could bring some back for a future set of shows:
Blade
Jessica Jones
Deathlok
Heroes For Hire


It could all be based on what stories they want to tell too.

Power Man and Iron First get some good kid-recognition by being regulars on Ultimate Spider-Man.

Yeah, but I'm not sure if these Netflix series will be particularly kid-friendly.


Now that I think about it, they could take a future set of shows away from New York.

Something like:
Runaways
War Machine
Wonder Man
Moon Knight
culminating in West Coast Avengers of course.

How about a Misty Knight/Colleen Wing series? Or heck, how about Ms. Marvel? Kamala Khan is a brand-new character, so I'm sure Marvel retains the rights to her.
