PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I’ve really enjoyed all of the Netflix offerings to date I have to say that I am looking forward to this teaming up of all four of them. Now this is even with my initial hesitation about their using the name “The Defenders” since I grew up on the team that consisted of Dr. Strange, The Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer and The Sub-Mariner. Oddly enough two of those heroes are not even in the Marvel Cinematic Universe of properties but I think I might have preferred their going with “Heroes For Hire” more than anything else. Based on this trailer, the mini-series seems to have everyone that was a side character in it as well which is awesome. “The Defenders” will consist of eight total episodes and will be available for streaming in full on August 18, 2017. Let me know what you think of the trailer down in the comments below and you can learn more about the show’s cast and characters via the official Wikipedia entry.

Now we are up to the fourth here to be introduced and the fifth series overall in “Iron Fist” which is 100% available to stream as you read this just gone live post. Check out the cool poster along with some premise and cast. I’ll return at the close.

Check The Trailer: “Daredevil” Season 2: Trailer Part 2

A little over a week ago I said “Everyone who watched the first season of Marvel’s “Daredevil” was pretty sold on the performances and the overall presentation that we found as viewers. Charlie Cox was a terrific Matt Murdock/Daredevil and it was great to find the show taking place in the same universe that ALL of the recent Marvel Studios films are. By doing this there were references to things that happened in a wide variety of films and I love those kind of Easter Eggs. Check out the poster below of the second season which will go live on Netflix on March 18th”.

I continued with “As you can tell by the poster, there are a lot of players in this second season for our Man Without Fear to deal with and I am fine with that since its expanding the ever growing Marvel film universe. I also love how these shows are connected together which we found thanks to some references in “Jessica Jones”. These series are really giving Marvel fans something special and now we have the first trailer for the second season of Daredevil”. The second trailer focuses on Elektra and premiered a couple of days ago. My apologies for posting this a couple of days later but I had a full plate with other items and I was checking out the mighty Black Sabbath. Make sure you find those reports and now onto the second trailer for Daredevil. Check it out below.
