Luke Cage just got cancelled as well. Maybe they'll do a Heroes for Hire series? Or is this the end of the Netflix Marvel franchises?
I'm hoping that's the case. I need some satisfaction on those plot threads they left dangling.

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

In response to your questions: 1. There are actually these people called police who could be called if someone was drunk and belligerent at my place of work, though if the person was threatening violence I would likely try to subdue him/her, assuming they didn't have me at gunpoint or the like. But...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Actually, you can listen to the audio of the incident right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlMr8Z5-d98 Hey, I was wrong; I thought Ben Jacobs might have been shouting (not screaming, just raising his voice as we've ALL seen reporters do on multiple, multiple occasions when questioning politi...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Paul GIaforte plead guilty in Montana, where the assault took place, not D.C.; he admitted his initial account of the incident was a lie when audio surfaced AND eyewitnesses came forward, including Alicia Acosta of a Fox News affiliate. Giaforte and his campaign manager first claimed the reporter g...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

The case DID "go to court", where Giaforte plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to community service and anger management therapy. I hadn't heard that bit. Interesting. What is the standard for misdemeanor assault in DC? Does it include disproportionate response to aggressive behav...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Journalists aren't victims in the modern era? As a class, no. They're the side that gets to present every argument to the public and claiming to be simply reporting the facts, which they have been flagrantly abusing for well over a century at this point. There are specific instances where specific ...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

To be fair though, Ares, there is one solid point here. I'm dead certain that this is what Marvel Comics would want.

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

The lack of self-awareness is hilarious, but suddenly I'm completely uninterested in watching the show. Huh.

Hopefully he'll continue on in the MCU in some way, I would still love to see IF in a movie even if it's just as part of a team.
Apparently he'll still do guest appearances and any future seasons of Defenders.

Netflix Iron Fist Cancelled

I was always a defender (wait, huh?) of this show. It wasn't flawless, but I could appreciate the good aspects. I was never satisfied with the plot as it was, but I looked at it as a building process. They were laying a (more or less) solid foundation for something that could have been great. Now th...

Re: WAIFU WARZ - Squirrelly's Build Tank | Now with RWBY

Where I acknowledge that the series has its flaws, but unabashedly love it anyway. Lots of fans do love to complain endlessly, though. It's frustrating. I would watch a new episode, visit a fan discussion, and see the same people bitching about it again this week... though timestamps clearly show th...

Re: Marvel Comics Out-Superboy-Primes Superboy Prime

Beyond that image, the rest of the comic goes on to basically say that what Mojo really needs in order to stop complaining about the new characters is friends and a girlfriend. So, you know. Throw in "basement dwelling incel" in there too. Know what fits in real well with this message? "Stop buying...

Re: Marvel Comics Out-Superboy-Primes Superboy Prime

Misrepresenting a few key points here and there, of course. The X-Men have always been a diverse team. The "true fans" they're talking about aren't opposed to diversity, in the comics or the fandom. The problem is that the new audience they're seeking doesn't like superhero comics, so they're turnin...

Re: The Predator

As someone with Tourette's - quite mild, basically symptomless as an adult - I find that kind of thing mildly irritating.
