Last Friday we saw the beginning of something truly epic in the world of Netflix and in the universe of the MCU. Marvel’s Daredevil is the first exclusive Netflix show about the MCU, and it is the first of four solo shows to culminate in The Defenders. Today I ask myself whether it is fair to be excited about AKA Jessica Jones, Luka Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders?
Daredevil sure did convince me. Yes, this is a great idea – and they’ve proven that we should expect a ton. Not only was Daredevil a good show, they cast great actors, directed fight sequences perfectly, worked with the narratives of the comic books, and had one of the greatest MCU villains yet.
The show I’m most excited about is Iron Fist – considering the fact that they mastered fight sequences in Daredevil. Though, there’s a long way until that show.
Luke Cage and AKA Jessica Jones already have casted their protagonists, and I like the choices they’ve made – even if I think Charlie Cox from Daredevil is in a class of his own.
The Defenders will be an interesting show once it arrives, and I am excited – but to be honest, I’m more excited about a second season of Daredevil.
