This past weekend saw quite a few interesting revelations on the state of Marvel TV crossovers, while the full release of Netflix’s Daredevil seemed to set up a great many threads for Iron Fist in particular. Now, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight goes in-depth on Daredevil’s future, including Season 2, Jessica Jones, The Defenders and more.
The past few weeks, Marvel’s TV universe has been abuzz with news of potential for an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, as well as a possible Ms. Marvel series. Speculation has run the gamut, but now it seems Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter have been chosen to lead the spinoff, giving us a good idea of its premise.
Captain Marvel got a major shot in the arm with the studio’s confirmation of Nicole Perlman and Meg LaFauve as the film’s writers, but fan-favorite Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan may beat her idol into the MCU.

The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman ’66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.

Late last week, surprising rumors emerged that Marvel would develop an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff for ABC, the focus of which would become clear by Season 2's end.

ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson is back for the third season of the popular series in our recap feature we’re officially dubbing Pointed Commentary.
This week: Roy gets tossed in the clink and endures some hard times there, Doug Jones is basically wasted as Deathbolt, and Ollie gets teary-eyed but refuses to let tears fall, in true tough-guy form.
