Two more live-action series based on Marvel characters have been announced. One is Ghost Rider, which obviously follows the popular character once played by Nicolas Cage in a pair of movies. But unlike the Cage movies, which followed the Johnny Blaze version of the title character, the TV series will follow the Robbie Reyes version of the character.
The other series is Helstrom based on the comic characters Daimon Hellstrom, also known as Son of Satan and Hellstorm, and his sister Satana, who will be called Ana on the show.
Although it has taken some time for Marvel Television to find success, they have done so by getting out of the MCU’s way and existing in their own space. Sure there may be some slight nods to the unseen cinematic characters they co-exist with, but for the most part, these shows are successful because they build their own brand. While Netflix has been quick to cancel some of their Marvel shows in the past, Hulu is in the process of developing their own shows just as quickly.
Various reports that are coming out of the winter TCAs are confirming that Marvel Television is developing animated shows based on Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K., Tigra & Dazzler Show, and Hit-Monkey. And they will be bringing in some very funny comedians to oversee these shows. From Kevin Smith and Chelsea Handler to Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum. More on the report below.
The NYCC 2018 panel for Daredevil season 3 – held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in NYC – featured cast and crew alike. There to discuss the ongoing cinematic journey of Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, and Wilson Fisk were show stars Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio, Joanne Whalley, Wilson Bethel, and Jay Ali, as well as series showrunner Erik Oleson and Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb. But before getting into the meat of the discussion, Loeb introduced the cast and then announced that Cox was married this past weekend – and his wife was sitting right behind me!
