No more heroes: Netflix cancels The Punisher and will cancel Jessica Jones after Season 3

Where did our heroes? The Marvel heroes of New York are gone and will not be returning on Netflix. Found at IGN, news site Deadline reports that the Marvel Netflix series The Punisher won’t be renewed for another season and it will be cancelled. Likewise, the Marvel series Jessica Jones will also be cancelled, but after season 3 just like Daredevil.

Netflix in regarding to the Punisher:

“Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix. Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come.”

Netflix in regarding to Jessica Jones:

“In addition, in reviewing our Marvel programming, we have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones. We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognized by the Peabody Awards among many others.”

Netflix overall response to Marvel:

“We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning.”

TV producer Jeph Loeb who worked on series Jessica Jones and Luke Cage wrote a letter thanking the fans for being supportive. Here is the letter and I will leave the link down below the post:

It had never been done before.

Four separate television series, each with different super-talented showrunners, writers, directors, cast and crew, coming out months apart and then…

…they would meet in a single event series all set in the heart of New York City.

We called them The Defenders.

And together we were thrilled by stories of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and even the Punisher joined in!

They said it couldn’t be done.

But Marvel assembled amazing teams to write, produce, direct, edit, and score 13 seasons and 161 one-hour episodes.

Take a moment and go online and look at the dazzling list of actors, writers, directors, and musicians who graced us with the very best of their craft.

We loved each and every minute of it.

And we did it all for you — the fans — who cheered for us around the world and made all the hard work worth it.

So, Thank You!

On behalf of everyone at Marvel Television, we couldn’t be more proud or more grateful to our audience.

Our Network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters… but you know Marvel better than that.

As Matthew Murdock’s Dad once said, “The measure of a man is not how he gets knocked to the mat, it’s how he gets back up.”

To be continued…!

– Jeph Loeb and all of us at Marvel Television

With all this said, this is the end of the Defenders. As far as I know, Hulu are in the works of doing four animated series focusing on some Marvel characters such as Howard the Duck and Hit Monkey. Disney+, upcoming Disney streaming service, are planning to do a TV series focusing on Loki and Vision and Scarlet Witch.

Hulu is open to Marvel Netflix cancelled series! Possible revival?

There might be hope for fans if Hulu and Marvel agree to cooperate. Last year, it was announced that Netflix cancelled the Marvel series Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, with Hulu agreeing to allow more Marvel series to join opposing streaming site and especially since they agreed to do four animated series  based on Marvel characters such as Howard the Duck, it is possible that Hulu could revive these Netflix series.

Craig Erwich, VP of original streaming, made a comment to the Wrap  in regards to Marvel and their cancelled series and Hulu:

“Marvel has a ton of titles we’d be interested in. It kind of just depends on when they’re ready, [and] who, most importantly, is going to be behind these things.”

Overall, Erwich commented that if the team are interested to bringing shows like Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist to Hulu and continuing the series, he will allow it on Hulu if only they are interested. If it goes well for both parties, Hulu will save these shows and expand more content on their site.

Marvel Hulu plans to make animated series called “The Offenders”

Imagery for “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.,” “Marvel’s Hit Monkey,” “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show,” and “Marvel’s Howard the Duck," who will all team up in "Marvel's The Offenders"

It may not be like the cancelled Deadpool animated series or Netflix Marvel, but it looks like Hulu wants to make a Marvel series exclusively in Hulu. Announced at Television Critics Association Press Tour, Hulu announced that they are teaming up with Marvel and wants to create four animated series based on the Marvel characters M.O.D.O.K., Hit Monkey, Dazzler, Tigra, and Howard the Duck. All four series will also lead to a TV event called Marvel’s “The Offenders”. Here is the four animated series and their synopsis:

Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.

n “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.,” M.O.D.O.K, an egomaniacal Super Villain with a really big head and a really little body, struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family. “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.” comes from writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt, with Blum, Oswalt and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Marvel’s Hit Monkey

“Marvel’s Hit Monkey” tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld in this darkly cinematic and brutally funny revenge saga. “Marvel’s Hit Monkey” comes from writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck, with Gordon, Speck and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Marvel’s Tigra and Dazzler Show

In “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show,” two woke Super Heroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles. “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show” comes from writers Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler, with Rivinoja, Handler, and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Marvel’s Howard the Duck

Trapped in a world he never made, America’s favorite fighting fowl Howard the Duck hopes to return home with the help of his unstoppable gal pal Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him the crispiest dish on the menu, in “Marvel’s Howard the Duck.” “Marvel’s Howard the Duck” comes from writers Kevin Smith and Dave Willis, with Smith, Willis, and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

 

So far there is no expected release date for these four series, but if you got Hulu and you want to laugh at some Marvel characters, you might want to keep your eyes peeled for this one.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 movie will use Gunn’s script

Good news for Guardians of the Galaxy fans! According to IGN, the “halted” movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will indeed be using James Gunn’s script. In a interview with Star Lord actor Chris Pratt with MTV, Pratt commented that they plan to do the movie according to James Gunn. He also mentioned that he still cares about him and he believes it’s important for the team to stick together like the Guardians and get the job done.

However, it’s still unknown to who will direct the movie.

If you don’t know why Disney fired James Gunn, Disney found James Gun’s tweets and deemed them inappropriate due to not being civil and polite. In results, Disney fired James Gunn and this caused the movie to be put on pause on production. James Gunn is currently working with Warner Bros and plans to do a Suicide Squad movie in 2021.

Fantastic Four costumes added to PS4 Marvel’s Spider-Man

A while back back, Marvel Games sent out a tweet hinting fans and gamers that something “fantastic”is coming for Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4.

Most fans have speculated that it has something to do with the family team Fantastic Four since the profile picture for Marvel Games changed the letter A to 4. For the past weeks, Fantastic Four content has been appearing in Marvel mobile games such as the villain Dr. Doom in Marvel Strike Force and The Thing joining Marvel’s Contest of Champions. Now announced today, Marvel’s Spider-Man is next for the Fantastic Four content. It’s been anounced that this week that Marvel’s Spider-Man will be receiving a free update patch called 1.14. This update will give players two costumes for Spider-Man related to the Fantastic Four.

The first costume is the Bombastic Bag-Man Suit and the second costume is the Future Foundation suit. The Bombastic Bag-Man suit made its debut in the Amazing Spider-Man comic issue #258 (1963) where Spider-Man seeks help from Reed Richards (Mister Fantastic) to remove the symbiote suit. This caused Spider-Man to be naked and the Fantastic Four gave him a loan suit while Johnny Storm (Human Torch) gives him a DIY paper bag mask.

For Future Foundation, the suit made its appearance in Fantastic Four #579 (1998). In order to honor Johnny’s death, Spider-Man joined the Fantastic Four and the team later renamed the group by calling themselves the Future Foundation. Rather than having the usual blue suits, the team donned the black and white suits.

Venom Walmart Exclusive DVD combo unbox

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another fun post from yours truly. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I mentioned a while back that I went to see Venom on October of 2018. It was a fun movie to watch and I like this Venom better than the one from Spider-Man 3. When I heard of news of this movie was ready to preorder for the Christmas season, I quickly placed an order from Walmart. For $30, Walmart was selling an exclusive copy which contains the movie Venom for DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital and even an action figure. The Twitter account for Venom even made a fun 90s video commercial promoting the action figure.

Now that I got this, let me show off some pictures!

The box set for the movie is pretty big, but the action figure itself is quite small. The box is usual cardboard and inside the Blu-Ray case which has the two discs for DVD and Blu-Ray and a redeem code for the digital. The Actio figure is small which is the average size of an action figure. Overall, I say it’s a good deal if you want to make use of your money. I will probably do a Venom movie review in the future. For $30, you get all the movie formats along with a nifty figure that is not Pop Funko figure. Walmart does an excellent job on exclusives.

Tokusatsu version Spider-Man in Spider-Verse sequel?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is becoming Sony’s greatest animated movie and the movie is already getting positive feedback from fans and non Marvel fans. It was mentioned a while back if there was a sequel, it might be a spinoff featuring the female versions of Spider-Man. However, we did get news from the producer of the movie saying that they promise to include this particular version of Spider-Man in a sequel. In a tweet, Philip Lord confirmed that if Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse makes over $200 million, the sequel movie will include the Tokusatsu version of Spider-Man also nicknamed Supaidaman. Just in case you missed out, in the trailers, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse included these versions of Spider-Men: Miles Morales (Protagonist), Peter B. Parker, Gwen Stacy, Peter Porker, Peni Parker and Spider-Man Noir. If a sequel is possible and it makes money, we could get Supaidaman.

This Japanese version is owned by Toei and it is a live action series in the 1970s. Here is what Anime News Network describes it:

Toei‘s Spider-Man starred actor Shinji Tōdō as Takuya Yamashiro, a 22-year-old motocross racer by day and Spider-Man by night. His superhero alter-ego faces the dangerous Iron Cross Army when he dons the Spider Protector suit he keeps in his Spider Bracelet. The bracelet also shoots webbing and can summon the Spider Machine GP-7 flying car and the Marveller spacecraft. The Marveller can also transform into the mecha Leopardon.
