Defenders Trailer 2 SDCC Reveal
Oh Yeah here it is baby!!!!1




Stan Lee Korea Teaser:
Stan Lee worked with NetFlix to release a special Defenders teaser for Korea.  Apparently, Stan Lee is very popular in Korea.  The teaser is really pretty cool with Stan narrating the entire thing and clips of Defenders and the previous Netflix series being used to fill in the visuals.

Stan Lee's full quote during the teaser is:
They’re the greatest stories ever told. Heroes show us we don’t need to be perfect to do what’s right.It’s not about living without fear, but facing injustice. It’s not about being powerful, but finding your calling. When you least expect it, they show us it’s ok to be vulnerable… no matter how tough you are. Because, even though they’re heroes, they’re still human.


Punisher Teaser:



Defenders Trailer 1:

The Defenders Trailer gives us our first substantial look at the Defenders in action.  It shows Misty Knight interogating Jessica Jones when Matt Murdock bursting in as her attorney.   It shows Luke and Danny meeting which might come about by Rosario Dawson's character.  We hear Stick giving a pep talk as the villain of Alexandra is introduced.  We also get a glimpse of the heroes fighting together in a hallway, which looks completely bad ass.

Alexandra character seems pretty forboding as the big bad as of the series.  She utters a line about the stronger your connections between them the easier they are to destroy.  Alexandra I expect to be the leader of the Hand an organization that seems to have multiple subgroups.  My theory is that there are 5 major Hand groups for each finger in the Hand.  One is led by Bukudo, one by Madame Gao, one by Nobu, and one by Alexandra.  I believe the 5th group is being saved as a surprise and there are few interesting groups it could be.   The Black Sky mythology set up in the Daredevil series is also here with Elektra coming back from the dead as a Black Sky and one of the primary antagonists the heroes will be facing.

The trailer is set to Nirvana's "Come as you are" a song that I would generally consider blasphemous to be attached to a trailer but here it really works.  These are the Nirvana characters of the Marvel universe and they certainly are coming as they are.



Trailer Official Description:
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together. The Netflix original series will launch globally on August 18, 2017.
Defenders Teaser 2:

The return of Elektra is hinted at in this Defenders teaser.  Elektra was killed in battle at the end of Daredevil Season 2 but the Hand took her body and has plans to turn her into the "Blacksky" a special warrior that is the group's ultimate killing machine.

Details on the Punisher:

Known characters and cast in the Punisher series:

  • Frank Castle / The Punisher - Actor Jon Bernthal 
  • Karen Page - Actress Deborah Ann Woll
  • Dinah Madani- Actress Amber Rose Revah
  • Micro - Actor Ebon Moss-Bachrach
  • Billy Russo - Actor Ben Barnes

The series showrunner is Steve Lightfoot who also wrote for the show "Hannibal".  Steve is also writing the first two episodes himself.  Executive Producers for the show include Jim Chory (Who has overseen much of the Defenders shows) and Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb.

Toylab Thoughts:
The character of Dinah Madani is described as a homeland security agent who is vexed by the Punisher.  Part of me wonders if this could be a romantic interest and potentially evolve into a character like the comic Lynn Michaels.

Micro was mentioned in Season 1 of Agents of SHIELD as a contact of Skye.  It will be interesting if she is name dropped or could even make an appearance in the show.

Karen's presence will likely help bridge the gap between events in the new series and those that occured in Daredevil season 2.

First picture of Jon Bernthal on set of the Punisher

It also appears the Frank will have reunited with Karen Page.  This makes sense as the two form of bond of mutual respect during the events of Daredevil Season 2.

San Diego Comic Con 2016 News:

Marvel Chief: Netflix's 'Defenders' saga will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe


Joe Quesada comments on the show
“Although these are superhero stories, this is different now. This is the street level…this is the street level noir side of the Marvel Universe. Something that you haven’t really, really seen in any of our Marvel movies. And probably more ground level, than I think you’ve seen. This is not like us doing Batman, Dark Knight or any of that stuff. This is very Marvel doing street level superheroes.”

 “There will be some interconnectivity, much like the movies. They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers.”

The shows according Joe Quesada are being designed for Binge watching almost one giant movie as opposed to the weekly show model Marvel used for Agent's of SHIELD.  With 13 episodes for each of the 4 characters a person could sit down and watch it as one long movie.

“The Netflix model offers us the advantage of being able to construct the show in a manner that is very different than a weekly network TV show...We can sit there and look at 13 episodes and plan it out as a very large movie. It makes seeing the bigger picture a little bit easier.”

“Even the way that you parse out information and reveals within the show can be different than you would on weekly TV,” ...“With weekly TV, you sit there and go, “The audience may not want to wait two or three weeks to get this particular bit of information.” Whereas with Netflix, we might be able to hold onto a particular piece of information, because they may just watch it two hours later.”

What I know:
Characters Involved - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Ironfist
Set up: 13 Episodes season for each character, followed by a mini /season event called the Defenders

Zac Efron has confirmed he has a Marvel script.  It could be for a movie but timing wise it seems more likely that he is attached to one of the Netflix show characters.  Likely he is either looking at Daredevil or Iron fist roles.

Other Info on Defenders Series: 

Location- The show will focus on street level superheroes residing in the Hells Kitchen neighborhood.  It will be filmed in New York City.

Rights - Marvel recently secured a lot of rights back - Including Daredevil and his big bad  the Kingpin.  They also have Ghostrider, Punisher and Blade who could potentially appear in the series.  Kingpin is a big deal because there was some speculation that SONY may control him through their Spiderman license.

Feel- The show(s) is going to have a darker, grittier tone than other Marvel projects.  It will like Marvel Noir.

Universe - It will exist in the main Marvel Cinema Universe

What other heroes will show up?
Still unknown but I am hoping for:
The Punisher  ---> Could the Punisher appear in the Defenders?
Misty Knight
Deathlok
Agents from Agents of Shield
Ghost Rider
Blade

Inhumans Movie / Show - News, Casting, Speculations, and Rumors






Marvel Studios /TV has announced that Inhumans will be a new show appearing on ABC and will premiere in fall of 2017.  The series first 2 episodes will be shot in Imax Cameras and will debut in movie theaters across the country.

This post is updated with updates on Inhumans the newest updates are at the top.

Update SDCC Trailer of Inhumans 7/21/2017
This trailer is a lot better than the first.  Finally get to see Medusa's hair in action, Karnak and Gorgon in action.
Also there is a group of Inhumans on Earth who seem to be led by Triton who is leading them safety.
The music is cool in the trailer, I also dig Maximus the Mad's speech, he is going to be a villain with some depth. Lots of cool special effects I actually get the feeling that this may be worth the Imax partnership but, but, YES one big but I still wish Black Bolt had his mask.  Will that kill this whole thing for me....no but I think Blackbolt definetly loses something without it.


Empire Magazine Interview:
black bolt maximus marvel's inhumans abc

Empire Magazine interviewed Director Scott Buck and released an Image of Black Bolt talking to Maximus The Mad.  You see the Full Interview and Article here.
The image does not do much in and of itself to make me feel better about this series.  Black Bolt could still really use a mask in my opinion.

One interesting quote from Buck in the article was after mentioning that the first 2 episodes will appear in Imax in the theaters he says:
“It allows us to think bigger; to use visuals you don’t normally get on your television screen. We wanted [it to be] strikingly beautiful and unusual.”
I'm really hoping that means we get to see a lot of Attilan and that it looks very cool.

Buck stresses that the show's characters while outlandish will be relatable and the story will follow how a proud royal family will be forced to live as refugees.
"...we’re dealing with relatable people in a moment of great crisis: a royal family forced into the position of refugees. They just happen to have superpowers.”
To be honest I would rather him have said.  For these characters we are not pursuing envelope of relatability but instead pushing the very envelop of conciousness of what can be.  This is Sci Fi Mind blowing extravaganza feature alien worlds, new technology, and awesome powers.

In the famous words of Han Solo, "Ive got a bad feeling about this".

Trailer 1:
There are still a few things that worry me about this.  However they do look better in motion.  I am not seeing much use of Powers either and I think that would be something you would sneak into the trailer.  I also think they need address why Blackbolt can't speak.  Yes, many of Toylab's readers are experts on Blackbolt but he is still pretty unknown outside of Marvel fanboys.



Well that trailer was interesting.  We have some thoughts on it.





Thoughts on the Trailer by Sir Kent

UUUUGH!!! WHERE oh WHERE do I start with my hatred of how this series looks from this trailer? You all know how I like to start my reviews with what I really didn't like about something. I know this is just a teaser trailer but, it just looks 32 flavors of F'BEEPed up Grand Ma Poop! Before I start spitting hate, let me give you a brief history of the Inhuman Royal Family so you can understand where my expectations for this series come from.

The Inhumans made their first appearance in Marvel Comics way back in 1965. It was within the pages of Fantastic Four #45 that we first got a glimpse of what they were all about. They had a short lived, self titled run back in the 1970s titled Inhumans that unfortunately only had a 4 issue run. Throughout their publication history, they always just seemed to appear during a time of crisis, and layeth MUCH smacketh upon some candy ass and then retreat back to their ancient and isolated  home of Attilan. A city that could actually move around the universe and one of the main reasons they have been able to avoid detection from humans for so long.  The city in the trailer seems to reside in the blue sea of the Moon that is oxygen rich. It wasn't until the incredibly popular run on Agents of SHIELD that Inhumans have been catapulted to popularity.

Blackbolt vs Thanos

 While not always popular the Inhumans have been deeply intertwined into the Marvel Comics Universe for awhile. Black Bolt himself has battled Thanos, been part of The Illuminati that banished The Hulk from the Earth and brought on The Planet Hulk and World Breaker Hulk saga. Also, there was that whole terrigin gas getting out and infecting most of the planet PLUS killing an ass-load of mutants that caused a war between The X-Men and The Inhumans. So YES, they have become VERY significant as of late and, deservedly so.

Which is why I was SO ASS HURT over the looks of this trailer! Now, like with a lot of movies, you simple ARE NOT going to get the characters EXACTLY as they are in the Comics. I call it The “MOVIE-ED” affect. Where a character's power is somehow lessened or changed due to script, time or budget. From the looks of this trailer, this ENTIRE project suffers from a fatal cause of MOVIE-ED affect!

Let's start at the from the top, shall we? WHERE THE F'BEEP is Black Bolt's tuning fork and mask? I GET that they want to try and ground the character's in reality (Much like a Netflix series) but to have him NEVER wear it??? C’MON MAN! How is he supposed to focus the ionic energies that he uses as weapon?

What is the goal of his brother Maximus the Mad (I kinda always really dug his name. If I had a boy child, I'd name him that!). While his ultimate goal was to rule over all life on Earth, his first goal was always to try and break his brother Black Bolt out of sheer jealousy. From what I can tell from the trailer, it looks like Maximus causes a fracture within the Royal Family that forces Black Bolt to go to Earth to seek help. Presumably from SHEILD. However, in the Comics, there is NO F'BEEPIN’ WAY Black Bolt would hide who he is to try and do this!

He never ONCE took off his mask or his suit when dealing with humans BECAUSE he is royalty. Such an endeavor has NEVER been attempted by Marvel or ABC before. F'BEEP, for that matter NOBODY has tried this before. To introduce such a pivotal group of characters in I-Max and then transition them to the small screen was an ingenious and Ball's-Deep kinda move. However, I don't know if it's budget (Though we damn f'Beepin’ KNOW it's budget) or poor location scouting or wardrobe or WHAT that truly turns me off from this first trailer.

There are so many things that I truly hope don't get lost in the translation of this. My boy Karnak, while not having been exposed to terrigen mist, has the ability to see the faults in everything. People, structures and using his incredible martial ability can expose those weakness.  This means he could wreck a tank with his barehands even though he has no true super powers.   Gorgon not only has his cloven feet that can cause isolated tremors but is also incredibly strong and durable. I want to see him tossing dudes around like rag dolls!

What I'm saying for this to work, with your obvious shortcomings in budget, you have GOT to have a fantastic script and story and the characters have GOT to be Kick-Ass. Or this will be a resounding, epic FAIL!

Bottomline I am worried about this, but still want it to succeed.  My fingers are crossed.

Show Synopsis:
The Inhuman Royal Family remains isolated in their amazing technological city of Attilan.  Attilan is capable of flying and has remained hidden from human eyes by resting on the Moon.  The powerful and silent ruler of the Inhumans Black Bolt is challenged by his brother Maximus.  Maximus wants the Inhumans to go to Earth and take their rightful place as its rulers.  When denied by Blackbolt, Maximus leads a coup that sees Black Bolt and a close group of followers hiding on Earth where they find a new purpose.


Cast and Characters




Background:
The series will not focus on the Inhuman characters in Agents of SHIELD (Though it would not surprise me if they appeared).  Instead the show will focus on the classic Inhuman characters of the Inhuman Royal Family.  The show will be set in the modern day and will be set both on Earth and the Moon.  The addition of the Moon as a set means that Attilan and the Blue Side of the Moon will very likely be a setting for the show.

The show / film showing with Imax will be the first time that a show and Imax have joined in such away.  The Marvel press release as posted on Marvel.com states:

ABC, IMAX and Marvel Television also intend to work together to create a joint marketing and promotion plan for the series across their proprietary media platforms--which would be the first such cross-platform marketing launch of a television series. Today’s agreement also marks IMAX’s first time as a financing participant in a TV pilot and series.

Major news in the Marvel press release was on the focus of the series:
Marvel’s "The Inhumans" will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.
This should mean that all of the Inhuman characters will be on the table for Agents of SHIELD and this new Inhumans show.

I think it is safe to say that Inhuman's film has officially been canceled and this show is a replacement to tell some of the same story that was planned for the film.  There has been speculation building for years on what Marvel will end up doing with the Inhumans and now we finally know.

What do you think?  Are you excited?  Disappointed?  Please let me know.

Pictures
The first picture of the Cast was released fans noticed that Black Bolt did not have his mask which is his iconic look.  A user of ComicBookMovie.com named Seon.  Created this edited version of the picture.  I think this looks so much better and there is not reason why Marvel vs ABC could do something similar.





Teaser Video:
First teaser does not show any characters but we do hear the voices and learn about the issues that the group will face.  It sounds like some of the series Inhuman (After terregenisis cloud) storylines could be mined here.  Though it will be different because Blackbolt left the Royal Family during that storyline and here he is very much in place as the ruler of the group.
The voices in the narration are one male and one female.  The male is certainly Maximus the Mad as seems to be plotting the overthrow of his brother and calls for the Freedom of all Inhumans.  He talking to a female who says what he is saying is treason.  I doubt that is Medusa, my guess is that it is Crystal.
Overall really like this teaser, its very short but sets the mood.  Really wish they had just gone this route instead of the stiff looking Entertainment Weekly shoot.

It generally looks like they will be sticking to the classic looks of the characters:  Toylab Bloggers added the suspected character names to the character descriptions so that those are not official.

Black Bolt

Broderick: Male. 30-40. Caucasian. Can say volumes with just a look. Strong, thoughtful and private, he’s unaccustomed to being questioned or feeling a need to answer to anyone, to an extent that can verge on arrogance. Series regular.


Medusa:

Marjorie: Female. 30-40. Caucasian. An elegant and intelligent advisor to her husband, she struggles to find her place outside of their relationship, as others tend to view her as just a pretty face. Strong and resourceful, she’s not afraid to break the rules when the situation demands it. Series regular.


Maximus the Mad:

Marty: 30-40. Caucasian. Broderick’s younger brother; he is intelligent, charming, and articulate. He comes across as a man of the people but secretly covets power. Series regular.


Karnak:

Kevin: Male. 30-40. Open. Slight of build, his mind is his greatest asset. Always prepared with a plan, his outlook on life is the glass is always half-empty and often cracked and dirty as well. Though his outlook can be grim, he has a droll, dry sense of humor. Series regular.

Gorgon:

Grady: Male. 25-35. Open. Impetuous and brash, he has serious impulse control issues which frequently get him into trouble whether its women, booze, or fighting. He loves life and lives in the moment for better or worse. Series regular.

Crystal:

Christine: Female. 18-25 to play 18. Caucasian. Soulful but still learning the ways of the world, she has the arrogance of youth. Impetuous and independent she is also deeply devoted to her family. Series regular.

Triton:

Timothy: Male. 25-35. Open. SFXMU required. Supremely athletic. The ultimate picture of cool. He’s calm under pressure and willing to do anything to get the job done.



Sir Kent's thoughts on the Inhumans
Thoughts on the Inhuman Show and Casting from our infamous Guest Blogger Sir Kent!

#SIRKENTSAID #TOYLAB #THEINHUMANS

The Internet and comic geeks alike were all abuzz this week over the MOSTLY confirmed news that MARVEL is planning a GARGANTUAN (LOVE using such words) and ambitious introduction for a group that had been first reported to be D.O.A. The news of THE INHUMANS FINALLY getting not only a big screen, I-Max only treatment but, being tied into a T.V. series was not only enough to make me fuck a duck but about as overdue as this month's Netflix membership is from me (Don't worry bitches, I’ll get to you!). Speaking of ducks, a very brief history of The Inhumans. They were created by way back in 1965. Until recently, they never really had a long running comic of their own. They just kinda showed up at major events throughout Marvel history and much like the Terrigen Mist that gives them their powers, disappeared again. They were originally genetically enhanced humans that had been experimented upon by an alien race called The Kree.

(If you don't know who they are, you ain't a fan! And SHAME ON YOU!) The Kree created the Terrigen Crystals as a way to not only bring out and modify any hidden ability each person may have had but, the ultimate goal was to have them blend into different races throughout the galaxy and wait for orders to try and take over. Which explains their unique and individual appearance. I could go on and on because of their sudden resurgence of popularity thanks to A.O.S. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

But I will spare you that because the BIGGEST question of the week is HOW IS THIS GOING TO WORK??? Marvel...by the way BRA-F'BEEP'IN’-VO MARVEL! This is an endeavor that has NEVER been done before and if executed correctly, could spell a new way of movies and T.V. for years to come. Marvels plan is to have The Inhumans have a big screen run only only I-Max or I-Max 3-D screens. THEN spin that into a T.V. series.

This is simply GENIUS and ballsy thinking but, the story, the writing and the casting has got to be about as balls on as it was for DEADPOOL! Which brings me to the gist (Dirty but proper English term! Ya GOTTA love those, don't you?) WHO WILL PLAY THE ROYAL FAMILY??? This in it of itself is a HUGE problem because you have a bunch of start who think they are “TOO GOOD” to appear on the small screen! I said it once before and I’ll say it again.

If the great Samuel muthuf'BEEPin’ Jackson can appear TWICE on A.O.S. then NONE of you muthuf'BEEPa’s have an excuse! Except for being dick’s...thats always an excuse. Here is what I'm thinking should be the short list of consideration for the key members of The Royal Family (Of Inhumans. Not THAT Royal Family. DIPSH'BEEP!)

For the role of KING BLACKBOLT the first that comes to mind would be Vin Diesel BUT that dumbfuck probably would be one of those dicks that wouldn't do T.V.! I could see that so my next choice would be
Jessie Williams of GREY’s ANATOMY fame. Just because, physically, he fits the role to a t. It adds a certain level of color so that this won't turn into FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM. (Or as I call it, The Oscars all over again! HAH! Could there BE a cast anymore white? Oh wait...trump. I’m sad again)

Photo:

My choice to play CRYSTAL would be Gillian Jacobs of COMMUNITY fame because HELLO. I mean LOOK AT HER! SHE IS CRYSTAL! Put her in something skin tight, add special effects and BOOM!


Photo:

My choice for QUEEN MEDUSA would be Christina Hendricks of
BAD SANTA 2 and MAD MEN. Tits, ass and red hair. Need I say more?

Photo:

An obvious choice to stay on that “Not too white” line of thinking is my boy KARNAK. Interesting note about Karnak. He wasn't introduced to the terrigen gas like everybody else. His mother wanted him to build his abilities naturally. So she sent him away to a monastery where he mastered his sensory abilities and martial arts prowess. Now, he can see weakness and flaws in anything and exploit it with his skills.

He is a natural tactician as well. My choice to play him could only be
Daniel Wu of INTO THE BADLANDS fame. If you ain't checked out this
A & E series, you really need to.

Photo: Daniel Wu as Sunny - Into the Badlands _ Season 1, Gallery - Photo Credit: James Minchin III/AMC

An easy pick for GORGON who is arguably the second strongest of the group would have to be Jason Momoa of STARGATE ATLANTIS and JUSTICE LEAGUE fame. He would play the shit of of a guy who could cause seismic tremors with his cloven hooves.

Photo:

So there you have it. There is my bright ideas for who would fill out this cast well and hopefully wouldn't act like a bunch of dicks making the transition from the big screen to T.V. What do you think?

Some speculate that has to do with a disagreement between Marvel's film and TV divisions.  Others conclude that this means that Marvel may be working on a deal with Fox to bring over the X-Men franchise.
For the moment this is all very much rumor and speculation.  Bleedingcool does insist though that it has reliable sources to this rumor.
It would be unclear if true what this would mean for the plot of Agents of SHIELD.  Agents of SHIELD has built up the ideas of Inhumans for the past 3 years.  Would this give the show free reign introduce the Royal Family or does it put their future seasons in a quagmire?

Update: Oct 12, 2015
Devin Faraci addressed the rumor circulating from the BleedingCoolNews article.  According to him there is no delay or cancelation of the Inhuman film.

He also questioned Bleedingcool's claims on the Iron Fist TV show:
