Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month in Marvel's May solicitations there's costume drama for Daredevil and some shocking returns, but a lot of comics just don't seem to be coming back, with little or no notice from Marvel.
Ahead of Toy Fair 2017, Mezco held a special event for the media showcasing some of its upcoming products. Due to the weather on the east coast, we were unable to attend, but Mezco didn't want everyone to miss out on the sneak peeks offered at the exclusive event. Shortly after it ended, the toy manufacturer posted a number of teaser photos of some One:12 Collective figures coming in 2017 and beyond. While expected Batman and Wolverine toys were nice to see, it's the likes of Popeye and Doctor Strange that have us itching to get our hands on Mezco's planned products.
Daredevil star Vincent D’Onofrio has been reasonably clear about Kingpin’s absence from The Defenders, though some have certainly held out hope for Wilson Fisk’s return in Jon Bernthal’s Punisher spinoff, given their past chemistry. Allow D’Onofrio to dash your hopes even further, debunking any suggestion he might show up in the 2017 Daredevil spinoff.
At long last, Marvel’s Iron Fist is finally taking center stage before its March debut. See Danny Rand return home, face off with some familiar foes, and flash that glorious glowing fist in a full trailer for the final Defender series!
In a world where Rogue One can fold in Star Wars Rebels canon and vice-versa, it can be frustrating for Marvel fans that the movie and TV sides haven’t had any real back-and-forth characters. Someone like Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin would seem like a natural fit, even in passing reference, but the Daredevil star sadly believes “It makes sense not to mix the TV stuff.”
Apart from Jessica Jones, Daredevil will prove the Defender we’ve lost touch with the most, by the time Marvel’s four-way Netflix teamup debuts this summer. Season 2 left us on a semi-hopeful note of Matt making a surprise admission to Karen, but according to Charlie Cox, Matt will have taken things much further by the time The Defenders opens.
Despite all we know of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and their respective casts, The Defenders has kept deadly silent on Sigourney Weaver’s mysterious villain. No longer, as new photos reveal not only said villain’s nom de guerre, but also some Luke Cage crossover, and more.
The already-streaming Marvel Netflix series have given us a taste of the four major superheroes paired up, but we’re nearing time for The Defenders to bring it all home. So it is, that Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist are all standing tall in a costume-happy first photo!
The Defenders are back! Except now they're four of Brian Michael Bendis's New Avengers. Which is to say, they're the same four heroes who are starring in the Netflix Defenders franchise: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
The newly announced ongoing series comes from Bendis and artist David Marquez, who also worked together on Civil War II, and previously worked together on Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man and Invincible Iron Man.
Fans of Daredevil’s Kingpin were undoubtedly disappointed to hear that Vincent D’Onofrio wasn’t likely to menace The Defenders, even as his specter still looms over Hell’s Kitchen. D’Onofrio previously claimed to know when Wilson Fisk might return, but does his 2017 production schedule rule out Daredevil Season 3?
