It was crazy enough that Marvel seemed to be on such a streak with their films. Movie by movie, they created this expansive, thriving shared universe — one that culminated back in 2012 with The Avengers, and most recently in Captain America: Civil War, where the Avengers squared off against one another.
Marvel then proceeded to make this job they have look easy when they started releasing original shows onto Netflix, this time focusing on more street-level superheroes. They started with the fan favorite Daredevil before moving onto Jessica Jones. Coming later this month, we have Luke Cage, and next year, we’ll be treated to at least Iron Fist and Defenders (the TV equivalent of The Avengers), wherein all four of our heroes will team up against a larger foe (and this isn’t even including the Punisher series, whose release date is still seemingly up in the air). Like with their movie universe, Marvel has slowly, but surely, built up their universe into a living, breathing world.
Thus far, Daredevil and Jessica Jones have impressed, and if the early reviews are any indication, Luke Cage is set to continue that expectation of quality.
But what about Iron Fist? We had a teaser for the series during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but it very little footage. And this is a hero that mainstream fans know little-to-nothing about. Is it possible for that high bar to be maintained once Marvel heads into truly obscure territory? We’ll have to wait and see.
Luckily for us, some lucky fans won’t have to wait too long to at least get a glimpse at what Marvel and Netflix have to offer audiences.
According to a press release from Marvel (via Screen Rant), Marvel will be bringing footage of Iron Fist to this year’s New York Comic Con, along with a new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Here’s what Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb had to say:
“Fans are going to love the sneak peaks of our newest shows that we have lined up for New York Comic Con. With a first look at Marvel’s Iron Fist and a new episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we want to blow you away with the exclusive Marvel content at this year’s Show.”
On Friday, October 7, fans can expect the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel, and on Saturday, they can expect a panel for Iron Fist.
As far as what we can expect from the show…that’s still up in the air. Up until now, specific details regarding the Marvel/Netflix series have been minimal, but that hasn’t stopped us from being super stoked for the show!
