If Disney is willing to stop this "Disney Vault" nonsense and put EVERYTHING... and I mean -EVERYTHING- that they've released on their service, I'd consider it. I'm talking full runs of stuff like Duck Tales, Rescue Rangers, and Darkwing Duck, alongside stuff like the entire run of The Wonderful World of Disney and their movies and TV movies. There is so much of their content that simply isn't readily available and THAT is what I want.

At today’s Disney Investor Day, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige outlined the superheroic side of the upcoming streaming service Disney+.

That includes a number of original shows: “Wanda Vision,” which will star Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as The Vision; “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as the titular characters; a Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston and an animated “What if?” series. The first episode of "What if?" will consider "What if Peggy Carter became Captain America?" (Tech Crunch)

Maybe it's like a sitcom. How stoked would you be for a live-studio-audience type thing where Vision is constantly getting into wacky hijinx due to his lack of humanity, with Wanda having to use her magic to fix it all.

This WOULD be a good way to introduce Vision's daughter to the MCU... she hangs out with Ms. Marvel, doesn't she?

Okay, I was kidding before, but if this is in any way the method to bringing Ryan North's Squirrel Girl to television, I will subscribe twice.

So like Bewitched, only inverted?

More streaming madness from Marvel:

Marvel and Hulu announced today that they are expanding their partnership with two new live-action series that will invoke the Spirits of Vengeance: Marvel’s Ghost Rider and Marvel Helstrom. Both are set to debut on the streaming platform in 2020.​
No word yet on whether or not the S.H.I.E.L.D. version of Ghost Rider will be associated with the new Hulu series.​
In Helstrom, Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity​

Same actor for GR, different continuity.

Also, having watched some HULU originals, and other things. I wouldn't worry about Dis-Vel having somewhere to put their R rated properties

Jessica Jones season 3 is up.

There's been so little fanfare or attention, I forgot it was coming, like Netflix just wanted to get it out of the way.

Agreed. But I did catch the first 2 episodes last night and enjoyed them.
I like all the nods to Hellcat's comic-self.

Fuck this guy. Fuck Netflix for greenlighting such a mean-spirited show, and fuck the AV Club hack for calling it "cool".
If you read the article, it becomes obvious the author was being sarcastic when they call it “cool.”

Netflix has now issued a statement about the show, clarifying via a spokesperson that participants were paid for the time, and knew they weren’t applying for long-term jobs: “The pranks in Prank Encounters are spooky, supernatural, and over the top, and everyone had a great time. All participants came in with the expectation this was a one-day, hourly gig and everyone got paid for their time.

Getting back to the Marvel part of this thread... finished Jessica Jones Season 3. First off, I'm really going to miss these shows. Even at their worst *coughIronFistcough*, they were pretty good interpretations of darker, more street-level characters. I thought the casting was dead-on all-around. Now, without getting spoilery, I thought Season 3 was better than Season 2, and in some unexpected ways, completed a 3-season arc. They could have condensed an episode here and there, imo. The only thing that bugged me was
they really needed to be more consistant with Hogarth. Yes, I get she's an opportunist, but after everything she's been part of in the whole Netflix MCU, and her character development across the shows, some of her choices seemed absurd, even for her. Carrie-Ann Moss continues to play her with aplomb, which makes with a little more palatable, I guess.
And as always, I did like the little easter eggs and nods to the comic characters and their histories.

You think a dude with no martial arts abilities or charisma was dead-on for Iron Fist?

Really?

I question your sanity.

Your sanity is being currently questioned.

I think a dude who manages to be whiny, out-of-touch, self-important and spoiled was pretty dead-on. That was a big part of his pairing with Luke Cage in Heroes for Hire. I'll give you the fight choreography, particularly Season 1 where they shouldn't have rushed shooting and/or used a stunt double/better film cuts. Season 2 got better.

I LOVE that bit where Patsy gets into her comic book outfit. She's also a much better character this time around.

And I never thought I'd say this, but I actually like Patsy's Mom in this season.
