    When are they going to just get it over with and officially announce they aren’t doing Iron Fist though.

    • rcb918 says:

      They’ve said multiple times in the past few days that iron Fist news is coming soon; that they were waiting until Jessica Jones released before doing so.

    • Moster says:

      …Iron Fist was always the last one before The Defenders. Did you think they were going to do all of them at once?

    • Ian says:

      Yeah, the Iron Fist news thats coming is that its being cancelled and replaced by a Punisher series. Jessica Jones and Luke Cage were already cast and in development while Daredevil was underway. Absolutely nothing has begun for Iron Fist though, and it would have to be ready for release in less than a year for Netflix to stay on schedule with their Defenders line. Do the math, everybody.

      • canadian ninja says:

        The Punisher rumour sounds like wishful thinking and a bad idea. I know he has legions of fans but Frank Castle is all about the killing. Bad guys sure, but he like killin’em.

        If they really can’t find the joy to do Iron Fist I would think a Moon Knight or Cloak & Dagger series would fit nicely in with the New York crew.

      • Flip says:

        Well, there a rumor about Moon Knight, too, so maybe Luke Cage is being cancelled, too

    • Biff says:

      They cast Jessica Jones while Daredevil was airing. They cast Luke Cage THE CHARACTER while Daredevil was airing, because Luke Cage THE CHARACTER appears on Jessica Jones THE SHOW. Now that Jessica Jones THE SHOW is airing, they’re casting Luke Cage THE SHOW. IF they don’t cast a fit, blond young man to play a “mystery character” on Luke Cage THE SHOW, then while Luke Cage THE SHOW is airing, they’ll announce the cast of Iron Fist.

    Whaat…That nurse character is going to be in Luke Cage too, no doubt as a love interest. I really liked Luke and Jessica Jones together.

  3. Steven says:

    Great casting. Although Luke Cage didn’t leave much of an impression on me. I still see him as Lemond Bishop.

  4. Bigdede says:

    After watching Jessica Jones, I guess the nurse will be the character that ties in all the Marvel Netflix series. I just hope she isnt a love interest for Luke. I loved him and Jessica together. It was so sad when she laid on his chest and said he was the first person she ever thought about wanting more with. They have great chemistry. I’m excited for Luke Cage but it’s been 20 years since I’ve read the comics. Is he as emotional in the comics as he was on the Jessica Jones series?
