We’re spoiled these days. We may complain about it, but we tend to rely on the fact that when one superhero film is announced, we pretty much assume it’s going to have a sequel. Marvel Studios is to blame for that, and it’s because of them that one of its sister companies, Marvel Television, is kind of expected to follow suit.
While technically their entire film and TV universe is one cohesive world, when it comes to TV, the only one taking advantage of it are the Netflix shows, which currently consist of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders. The latter title hit last year, and thanks to the pattern Marvel Studios created by having standalone projects lead up to a team-up, we all kind of assumed a Defenders Season 2 was on the way.
However, in the months since that show dropped, there have been some comments that it isn’t in the cards. But what does Cindy Holland, the VP of original content over at Netflix have to say about this?
“It could be possible, there are no plans at this time.”
Ouch, so it isn’t looking great. Of course, she hasn’t ruled anything out (and why would she?), but this is a far cry from what you’d expect from a network if something they’d produced a smash hit. As it stands, I think they realize faith in audiences needs to be rebuilt before they can gamble on another crossover.
