Netflix Boss Talks IRON FIST Casting And Possibility Of A Spinoff Starring THE PUNISHER

Netflix COO Ted Sarandos talks here about the new approach to setting up The Defenders since Daredevil got a second season, offers an update on Iron Fist, and teases the possibility of a Punisher series and these characters heading to the big screen...

Talking at the Television Critics Association press tour earlier today (via IGN), Netflix COO Ted Sarandos revealed more details about what the popular online streaming service has in store for their Marvel properties after the success of Daredevil. Asked about the fact that the Man Without Fear is getting a second season before The Defenders launches (you may remember that the original plan was for each character to have a single season before the heroes all met and teamed up), he said: "I think ideally there will be a rhythm of about every six months you’ll get a new season or a new series from the Defenders group. And then they’ll crossover into a combined [Defenders] season once we’ve launched the first season of each of the four characters."

In other words, it all really depends on how well-received they all are. After all, based on the reviews and ratings for Daredevil, there was no way they wouldn't get a second season out there as soon as possible. "Some will selectively have multiple seasons as they come out of the gate. So they’ll probably be two launches a year," he added. Out of the four, only Iron Fist has not been cast at this point; the show doesn't even have a showrunner. So, when are we going to hear something solid? "Hopefully soon," Sarados said. "It’s always a little extra complex with Marvel in announcing things." With The Punisher coming to Daredevil 
season two, there's no doubt potential for him to join the rest of The Defenders, while it sounds like Netflix are also open to bringing these characters to the big screen. "It is possible for sure. That’s the beauty of the Marvel universe," he said of a possible Punisher spinoff. "Any of them could spin out into films too."
