Disney’s Marvel and Netflix announced recently that Netflix would distribute via its streaming platform a number of Marvel properties: Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. (First, can I point out how annoying the “Disney’s Marvel” tag is? We know- the Mouse buys everything. The Muppets, Star Wars, Marvel, ABC. No worries- this blog is not for sale.)
For my latest installment of Geek 101, let’s look at the last two characters in that group: Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Who are they and what does this mean for the Marvel storytelling universe- on both the large screen and the small.
Happy belated Star Wars Day! (aka May the Fourth Be With You!)
Two days ago Marvel’s The Avengers opened in the United States. I’d been waiting for this movie for some time so when I saw that the local movie chain was taking part in the Marvel Movie Event (a marathon beginning at 2:15 pm with Iron Man and culminating with the 12:01 am Avengers premiere) I knew that was how I’d be spending my Thursday. I started beating the drum on Facebook about two weeks before the event. By the time Thursday afternoon arrived I had quite a group of guys ready to nerd it up.
On a hunch, I brought my pocket notepad with me as I figured the event might inspire some writing. Also, I thought that tweeting between movies might be entertaining. Here it is- enjoy!
