Like, Iron Fist I understand but Luke Cage too? A show that had good reception from day one?
However, in my opinion IF and LC have been the two weaker shows of the Netflix Marvel ‘verse, and so maybe, just maybe, they’re doing Heroes for Hire. Please for the love of the Marvel gods, please do heroes for hire and do not, absolutely do not, cancel Daredevil, Jessica Jones and The Punisher. This is already getting out of hand.
Excuse me while I go rewatch The Punisher and imagine all the ways Frank would’ve killed Fisk, Bullseye, and the entire FBI while Agent Madani is like “listen, maybe the FBI shouldn’t have fucked up” and Lieberman is hacking all the cameras on Fisk’s feed to show sitcoms instead of real life.
Ya’ll thought I was being silly when I brought up Iron Fist and thus other Marvel Netflix shows being cancelled but there goes Luke Cage just like that so unless Heroes For Hire is gonna be a thing we’re all gonna get fucked
I LOVED season 3 and I think it’s the best season of any Marvel/Netflix since DD1 or JJ1, but I do wonder how this all plays out in the bigger picture.
I understand going back to Daredevil’s roots could only help the show get back on track and in Erik Oleson’s shoes I’d have done the same but last time I checked we had a universe that existed. A universe where Frank Castle would never, ever, EVER have stayed low with Fisk 1) being out of jail 2) being out of jail /and/ threatening Karen Page’s career and life. It just doesn’t add up. When The Punisher comes back with its second season, will this even be mentioned at all? Will we have Frank casually mention he happened to be out of town while shit went down?
And if it’s not the case and the two worlds are in fact divorcing, what was even the point of having Karen in season 1? And what the hell happened to Elektra anyway?
My gut feeling at the moment is season 3 tried to retcon season 2 as much as it could. I’m sort of no longer expecting Karen to appear on The Punisher’s sophomore season, or any other, because if she does it’ll be a living reminder of Frank’s ties to a story and enemy he didn’t show up for. It just might be that Elektra will come back to DD though, since nobody cared to mention a body, and if she does who’s to say Frank won’t? But it’s all very confusing right now.
Thought popped into my head as I’m watching season 3 of Daredevil. Imagine if Frank had learned Fisk was released from prison. He doesn’t think much of it cause he’s trying to live a normal life. That’s until Frank learns about the bulletin attack on the news. He debates checking up on Karen, but he decides against it (He has micro keep tabs on her though). All that changes when he learns from micro about Fisk wanting to kill Karen. I pity the poor bastards that’ll feel Franks wrath.
