Wait............what?
CaptainObvious - 2/27/2014, 2:22 PM
Everytime I see Joe Quesada, I get the urge to destroy things with my bare hands.
batz11 - 2/27/2014, 2:25 PM
Hope we eventually get this guy on a show or even cameo...and Marvel Knights...


Nomis - 2/27/2014, 2:27 PM
Really Joe Quesada ...all Marvel titles in NEW YORK?

Nomis - 2/27/2014, 2:29 PM
Did Cuomo just called Disney the "Evil Empire"? LOL!!!

@GoldenOne33
He's Batman with multiple personality disorder, basically. No powers, just cool gadgets and pretty sweet costume.
TheAmbassador - 2/27/2014, 2:37 PM
Listening to Quesada and how he emphasises the city of New York makes me wonder how individual these stories will end up being. Obviously they're planning The Defenders, so you know they will team up eventually, but I'm hoping Luke Cage & Iron Fist meet up before then.

Give me Heroes for Hire and I'll be happy

Weren't the Defender's based out of San Fran for a while? I'll have top go back and check my collection.
typicalfanboy - 2/27/2014, 3:26 PM
so what's going to attack hell's kitchen in this defenders team up? super hookers?
blackandyellow - 2/27/2014, 3:31 PM
It'd be cool if they introduced Punisher on Netflix.
wookiefit76 - 2/27/2014, 3:36 PM
Okay, I had to go back and check. Jessica Jones was never a member and Iron Fist was only a honorary member. Just call it Heroes for Hire and not even call it Defenders.

KeefNCookies - 2/27/2014, 3:37 PM
I sorta feel the same way about this guy as I do for Loeb (hint: opposite of good), except that this guy actually has talent (DRAWING, not his creative decisions).
koolaidbag - 2/27/2014, 3:39 PM
.......but are they in the MCU???? Why has no one out right asked this yet?!?!?!?!
wookiefit76 - 2/27/2014, 3:40 PM
Defender's base of operations also included: the Rocky Mountains and Richmond Riding Academy on Long Island, New York. I might be wrong on San Fran.
marvel72 - 2/27/2014, 4:24 PM
i would of preferred a dr.strange,namor & another hulk movie which led into a defenders movie,but this will do.
koolaidbag - 2/27/2014, 4:30 PM
@0megaDaGod where, and why wasn't it posted here, that's the news I have been craving!!!!!!!
TheRationalNerd - 2/27/2014, 4:46 PM
Lol, yo, I know that this is a dumb question but will these series tie into the MCU?? Or will they be like Arrow? Marvel Please don't hesitate to make these series dark and gritty. You're on Netflix!
jazzman - 2/27/2014, 4:46 PM
the show should be called Heroes For Hire
TheRationalNerd - 2/27/2014, 4:47 PM
Maybe "dark and gritty" is pushing it but since they're all more grounded characters they're circumstances and conflicts should be more serious and urban if anyone understands what I'm saying here.
TheRationalNerd - 2/27/2014, 4:48 PM
*their*
Bread - 2/27/2014, 4:52 PM
I hope we get to see Punisher and Moon Knight at some point. A Black Widow cameo would be cool too.
MarkV - 2/27/2014, 4:54 PM
Doesn't Moon Knight have, like enhanced senses when the moon is full? Maybe that was from the original run. I thought he had some connection to an egyption god...
Bread - 2/27/2014, 4:54 PM
@TheBlackNerd- I agree with you 100% And I'm pretty sure these shows will be included in the MCU.
MarkV - 2/27/2014, 4:58 PM
From Wikepedia, it appears whether he has any powers or not is not precisely known:

"He has some degree of superhuman strength during the peak of a lunar cycle. It's not known how much of this strength is mystical and how much is simply the result of self-hypnosis due to his psychological instability."



MarkV - 2/27/2014, 4:59 PM
Edit: looks like I was wrong

"During the 2008 run of the Moon Knight series, Spector states that he no longer has any superpowers."
m0th3r - 2/27/2014, 5:00 PM
@TheBlackNerd I thought they already confirmed they are in the MCU...

I also think we will other street level...Punisher, MoonKnight, Paladin, Shang Chi, Misty Knight...and How could you have DareDevil with no Elektra....

My question really is...Is this happening for one reason..so Marvel can use Kingpin..he is at Sony i believe and did NOT revert with Daredevil rights..someone correct me if im wrong
fettastic - 2/27/2014, 5:01 PM
Ok so now it's gone from "multiple years" to "3 years".

I can assume the first year is just ramping up and shooting.

It remains to be seen how the series' will roll out. Hopefully we'll find out before long. All it takes is one [frick]ing guy to actually ask the question, which is bound to happen.
m0th3r - 2/27/2014, 5:03 PM
@fettastic Thats not bad...averaging one every 3 weeks...Pretty sure its going to be Fall-Spring Season 1, Fall Spring Season 2, Wait..wait..wait Season 3-Defenders
Inhuman - 2/27/2014, 5:04 PM

Inhuman - 2/27/2014, 5:06 PM

Expect Kingpin, Purple Man, Master Khan, and Chemistro to be the main antagonists for each series and then Masters of Evil for The Defenders villains

GodzillaKart - 2/27/2014, 5:28 PM
Fantastic! Can't wait! Give me some Kingpin!
mgeoff88 - 2/27/2014, 5:28 PM
Woop! Woop! Street level heroes! You can expect these TV shows to be gritty with them taking place in Hell's Kitchen.
SuperCat - 2/27/2014, 5:33 PM






JohnTom88 - 2/27/2014, 5:36 PM
Night Thrasher TV series
ManofwooD - 2/27/2014, 5:44 PM
That name "Joe Quesada" give me nightmares. hopefully his producing influence here will be different than from his previous projects.
RamonSuarez - 2/27/2014, 5:57 PM
Kingpin is owned by Sony (stupid I know) so I doubt he'll be the main villain even though he should be.
