LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Luke Cage Not Returning For A Third Season

Netflix has canceled “ Luke Cage. ” News of the cancellation comes four months after the superhero action drama from Marvel Television debuted its second season on the streaming service — and just days after Netflix pulled the plug on another Marvel show, “ Iron Fist" “Unfortunately, ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ will not return for a third season. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series,” Netflix and Marvel Television said in a joint statement. A source tells Variety that talks for a third season had taken place, but that Netflix ultimately decided that one would not be feasible. With the move, Netflix severs further ties with Marvel as the producer prepares to shift gears toward providing content for parent company Disney’s yet to launch streaming services. Disney has already indicated that it will allow

Netflix Cancels "Iron Fist"

By: Christopher Linkous In the years since Daredevil debuted on Netflix, the streaming service has been growing and building its roster of street-level New York heroes – adding J essica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher , and the immortal Iron Fist , aka Danny Rand. But that expansion isn't continuing unabated, with news that Iron Fist won't be back for another set of episodes. In a statement released to Deadline, a joint statement from Netflix and Marvel confirmed that Iron Fist won’t get a Season 3, despite a warmer reception to the recently-released second season. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and show runners,” the statement reads. “We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.” Finn Jones made his debut as Danny Rand in the

TV Review: #IronFist Hardcore enough to sit through

Hardcore enough to sit through Rama is back. Here’s my review of Marvel’s new Netflix series, “ Iron Fist ,” and since I didn’t grow up reading Roy Thomas and Gil Kane’s comic books, nor was I familiar with it, this review is more from the perspective of a fan who’s binge-watched all 13 episodes as opposed to making comparisons and trying to finding out whether or not the adaptation is faithful to the material. Let me just say that of all the shows that Marvel Television and Netflix have given us since this whole ambitious “Defenders” plan started, my favorite remains “Jessica Jones,” and although “Iron Fist” is not their best work, it’s still engaging and hardcore enough to sit through. Finn Jones plays Danny Rand, a man who for fifteen years has been presumed dead in a plane crash. His parents died in the crash, he ended up in a monastery where he received training. He returns to New York City to reclaim his birthright, to reconnect with his past. There he also meets Jessica

Marvel’s Daredevil Renewed For Second Season

Marvel hero will get Round 2 on Netflix. By Brandon Wolfe After garnering many rave reviews (and some more tepid ones ) in its 11 days thus far of release, Marvel’s Daredevil has been renewed for a second season on Netflix. However, Season 2 will see a new pair of showrunners, as Doug Petrie ( Buffy the Vampire Slayer ) and Marco Ramirez ( Sons of Anarchy ) will take the reins from Steven DeKnight and Drew Goddard. No word on just when we might expect to binge Season 2, as the plan for the Neflix Marvel shows has been for A.K.A. Jessica Jones , Iron Fist and Luke Cage to follow Daredevil , leading to The Defenders , a small-screen, Avengers -style team up of all of the Marvel Netflix heroes. Given the heat on Daredevil right now, it stands to reason that Marvel might not want to wait such a long time to bring back Matt Murdock. Discuss this story with fellow SJF fans on Facebook .

Iron Fist Movie Moving Forward With xXx Writer

Iron Fist Movie Moving Forward With xXx Writer Marvel Studios is moving forward on a live action feature version of Iron Fist , hiring screenwriter Rich Wilkes to draft a movie based on a martial arts expert whose battle with a dragon--ended when he plunged his hands through the beast's molten heart--turned his fists into indestructible weapons. Iron Fist was on the minds of many fanboys when Disney paid $4 billion for Marvel's 5000 superhero library and vowed to turn the less obvious comic book heroes into films and TV properties. Marvel tried to make an Iron Fist movie with Artisan nearly a decade ago, as a vehicle for X-Men villain and martial arts expert Ray Park . The Iron Fist comic book mythology was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane in the 1970s, when the popularity of martial arts films was on the rise. Iron Fist was among a bunch of Marvel superhero properties scattered around Hollywood. While tent poles like X-Men, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four and

Disney Going To Dig Deep Into Marvel's Vault

Disney Going To Dig Deep Into Marvel's Vault Moviegoers have shown a willingness to be entangled by Spider-Man's web over and over again. Now, as Disney prepares to buy the comic-book powerhouse Marvel, it faces the question of whether fans will also get attached to characters as obscure as Ant-Man and Iron Fist. The Walt Disney Co. is making a $4.2 billion bet that they will as it nears completion of its acquisition of Marvel Entertainment this week. The cash-and-stock deal brings those characters and thousands of others to an entertainment empire that already includes Mickey Mouse, Kermit the Frog and Hannah Montana. Disney's biggest challenge will be to get enough people enthused about second-string superheroes to justify the price -- about $1.2 billion, or 40%, more than what Marvel's stock was worth when the deal was announced Aug. 31. The high price means Disney will have to find new ways to earn revenue from Marvel -- perhaps by bringing Marvel-licensed toys
