Daredevil: Marvel TV Head Downplays Punisher Spinoff Rumors

Daredevil: Marvel TV Head Downplays Punisher Spinoff RumorsWhen Marvel and Netflix’s partnership to create a shared universe – as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – based on The Defenders was first announced, the plan was to debut standalone seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist before a team-up miniseries. However, after successfully launching the New York City-focused universe with the well-received first season of Daredevil, and receiving even more critical acclaim with Jessica Jones season 1, Netflix gave both shows second seasons.Daredevil season 2 is the next series on the Marvel/Netflix slate to hit the streaming service, and it will introduce fan-favorite comic characters Frank Castle a.k.a. Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung). Early buzz about Bernthal’s portrayal of the Punisher made reports of a spinoff based on the vigilante seem like a logical step for Netflix. However, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb has since downplayed those rumors.Digital Spy spoke to Marvel Television’s Executive Vice President about the possibility of a Punisher spinoff but, though Loeb didn’t completely shut down a future standalone Punisher series, he said the initial reports seemed to be based more on speculation than definite talks between Marvel and Netflix:”I think that’s something that people are speculating on, as opposed to something that’s actually happening. … It’s certainly our hope that any of our characters will be embraced and that people want to see more of them.”

In addition to briefly discussing the possible Punisher spinoff, Loeb also talked about the critic and fan reception of Jessica Jones, the news of its renewal, and the response to those reports of Netflix’s announcement during the Television Critics Association 2016 winter press tour:”What we’re really trying to do is to tell the best stories that we can. For us, the greatest award was when Netflix called and said, ‘We’d like to do another season with you.’ When they announced that Jessica Jones was getting a second season, every single report said, ‘It should come as a surprise to no one that Jessica Jones has received a second season order.’ I’m the guy going, ‘Well, it was a surprise to me!’ It isn’t a given in television.”Certainly, as Loeb says, very little in television is a given. When The Defenders universe was first announced, it sounded like a similar plan to Marvel Studios’ Phase 1 – introduce each character in their own shows before bringing them together for a team-up. But the reality is quite different with Luke Cage (Mike Colter) making his first appearance in Jessica Jones, and Daredevil season 2 premiering before Luke Cage or Iron Fist have even debuted their first seasons.

Adding to the complications of the Marvel/Netflix slate are these rumors of spinoffs. Loeb has now downplayed the possibility of a Punisher series, but Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said during the 2016 winter TCAs that “any character” in the universe is “on the table” for a spinoff. But, Sarandos also said at the time that there wasn’t anything that was being discussed.So, these comments from Loeb and Sarandos may indicate that a Punisher spinoff isn’t currently being discussed by Marvel and Netflix. But, given that their Defenders universe is always evolving and neither flat out said a Punisher spinoff will never happen, it seems Frank Castle’s standalone TV show might yet become a reality down the line. It’s likely Marvel and Netflix are waiting for Daredevil season 2 to premiere before beginning those discussions in earnest – that is, if they plan to have those talks at all.Next: Daredevil Season 2 TrailerDaredevil season 1 and Jessica Jones season 1 are now available on Netflix. Daredevil season 2 will debut on Netflix on March 18th, 2016, followed by Luke Cage season 1 later in 2016. Release dates for Jessica Jones season 2, Iron Fist, and The Defenders on Netflix have not yet been announced. We’ll keep you updated on the Punisher spinoff as development continues.Source: Digital Spy

Twin Peaks: Ashley Judd To Join New Season

Twin Peaks: Ashley Judd To Join New SeasonDavid Lynch’s revival of Twin Peaks at one point looked to be very much in doubt, but with its creators coming to terms with Showtime the series is proceeding to production at a brisk pace. Fans of Lynch’s cult classic series had long since given up hoping that they’d ever get a return to the groundbreaking world of the series widely viewed as having inspired later productions as diverse as The X-Files and Lost; but not only is the celebrated writer/director coming back with much of his original cast, the project has also begun to attract a bevy of major Hollywood talent from outside the original participants.The latest big star to join the cast? Ashley Judd, whom Deadline reports has accepted an unspecified role on the series, set to air in 2017.Judd, most recently seen in the Divergent YA dystopia franchise, joins a roster of Twin Peaks newcomers including Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Caleb Landry Jones, Naomi Watts, Laura Dern, James Belushi, Robert Knepper, Tom Sizemore, Balthazar Getty, Grant Goodeve and Larry Clarke; who will join original castmembers Kyle MacLachlan, Madchen Amick, Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Michael Horse, Dana Ashbrook and Miguel Ferrer, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, Peggy Lipton, Everett McGill and others returning to their original roles. The season is expected to run for 18 episodes and follow MacLachlan’s Agent Dale Cooper as he returns to the bizarre, isolated mountain town after many years.

The original Twin Peaks, which was structured around Cooper’s investigation in the murder of local girl Laura Palmer, launched as an 8-episode season to critical acclaim and audience fascination, but the series was unable to maintain audience interest in its increasingly bizarre narrative and ahead-of-its-time use of the episodic television structure into the full-length second season – ultimately ending after a ratings drop with a feature film prequel (Fire Walk With Me) meant to tie up some of the more prominent story threads. Even still, the singularly unusual series left plenty of questions still to be answered, and fans are hoping that the new season may finally offer the answers they’ve waited over two decades for.It remains to be seen whether Twin Peaks will fare better now than it did before, though running on cable in an age where psychologically-complex dramas are the norm rather than network television in the early 90s unquestionably feels like a more natural fit for Lynch’s sensibilities in general and for this series specifically. On the other hand, it’s entirely possible that material of this nature has now become almost too commonplace on modern television, and that viewers who weren’t part of the original audience may find themselves wondering what the big deal is – although with Lynch actively involved that seems unlikely, as the famously offbeat filmmaker’s ouvre has only gotten more esoteric and askew in the intervening years.Twin Peaks is set for a return on Showtime in the first half of 2017, running double its original planned number of episodes.Source: Deadline
