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

Same thought as Christopher, I like the idea of it being a bridging show or gap filling show. Not that they have to have a shared storyline but rather I like that next year ABC gives us more uninterrupted AoS then get to an AC show then more uninterrupted AoS.

I feel the breaks and hiatus time didn't help those who were on the fence at various times.
The show started with 5/6 straight shows and is finishing that way but everything in between was two here, break for 3-4 weeks, two more, more interlude time.

Get S1 out on DVD and really start strong next season with AC in between the Holiday break time.

Oh, and

No, not a shared storyline. But it would be in keeping with the MCU's approach for AoS to set it up the same way the movies set each other up.

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

Very cool. I had been worried a little bit about it, but I'm glad it seems to be going through. A bridge is a good idea, given that I heard it would have fewer episodes than the normal 22. That being said, I wouldn't mind a "Marvel Night" with Agents of SHIELD followed by Agent Carter.

God, we have like five threads talking about the same things now and some are ok with spoilers and others are not.

Kevin Feige says Marvel Studios do have the rights to Kingpin

This was for those confused about whether SONY had the sole rights to the character or not.

The first Daredevil movie should have addressed that question, but I'm glad we're certain.

Does Sony even care about Kingpin? Since he still hasn't appeared in a Spiderman movie, I guess not!

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

I'm sure they'd do it for the right story. Spider-Man's probably got the strongest Rogue's Gallery of any Marvel character, though, so they probably haven't seen the need. Maybe the Sinister Six? They could be hired by Kingpin or something like that, I suppose (I'm just making up random ideas).

Actually Feige sounds like he's not entirely sure about the rights to Kingpin. He says either they have him or they share him, but he also says he's not 100% sure, so I'm not sure how reliable that is.

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

Well, he is sure of Marvel's right to use him. My guess is he has at least some awareness of whether the Daredevil TV show wants to use him (even though he's not in charge of the TV portion). He just doesn't concern himself with what Sony wants to do, so that's why it's not 100% definitive.

He said he thinks that's the case, but he didn't sound certain enough for me to assume that it's true just because he said it. It's never wise to rely on any single source without corroboration, and this particular source sounded very shaky about the matter.

^It may be a shared rights thing like the situation with Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch. Though a little bit simpler from a story POV since he's a character unto himself, not inexorably tied to one "hero", like say Catwoman or Lex Luthor.
