Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 Will Only Have 10 Episodes

Marvel’s Iron Fist will have a shorter second season.

Netflix has confirmed to IGN Season 2 of the Marvel series, which premieres on September 7, will only consist of 10 episodes.

This is a departure for Netflix, as most of the company’s tent-pole series, including Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Orange is the New Black, and Luke Cage, have remained at 13 episodes. A specific reason for lowering Iron Fist’s episode count in its sophomore run hasn’t been given.

However, Netflix did recently discuss during the Television Critics Association summer press tour why some of its shows have had pacing issues. Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original programming, gave an explanation for why some series still contain 13 episodes with each new season.

Marvel’s Inhumans Box Office Total Ahead of TV Debut

Marvel’s Inhumans is finally making its debut on ABC tonight, but Marvel teamed up with IMAX to debut the first two episodes in theaters throughout the world.

Released in theaters on September 1, Inhumans had a short, premium-format theatrical run intended to highlight some of the scenes filmed in IMAX. After its full run, Inhumans made, according to Box Office Mojo, approximately $ 1.52 million domestically and $ 1.33 million internationally for a worldwide haul of $ 2.85 million.

Its domestic opening slotted Inhumans into the 24th highest-grossing spot of its debut weekend (Sept. 1-3) — a time frame which ended up being the worst Labor Day weekend at the box office in 17 years. Inhumans only screened in 393 theaters for a $ 2,889 per theater average. In terms of every movie playing that weekend, that made Inhumans the 14th highest-grossing by per-theater average, and the fourth-highest grossing of all new releases that weekend.

Marvel’s The Avengers [4 Discs] [includes Digital Copy] [3d/2d] [blu-ray/dvd]


Marvel Studios delivers the ultimate comic-book film, which ties together such characters as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for a big-screen franchise team-up like no other. Taking center stage this time is Nick Fury (played once again by the note-perfect Samuel L. Jackson), leader of the peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury, along with former Russian spy Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), recruits a super team to combat Thor’s ever-deceptive brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after he brainwashes ace archer Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) while stealing a cosmic cube from an underground base. Thus the heroes must learn to work together alongside outlaw scientist Bruce Banner (Ruffalo), who can track down the artifact’s gamma signals when he’s not hulking out into a giant green monster. Show runner Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) adapted and helmed the script by Zak Penn~Jeremy Wheeler

Marvel’s New ‘Spider-Man’ Comic Series Will Star Miles Morales

When Marvel’s relaunched Spider-Man comic series comes out this fall, a new face will be behind the spidey mask.

The new series, written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by artist Sara Pichelli, will relaunch with Miles Morales, a half-black, half-Latino teenager, as Spider-Man, according to the New York Daily News. Morales has appeared as a version of Spider-Man in Marvel’s offshoot Ultimate Spider-Man series since 2011, which is separate from Marvel’s larger Spider-Man universe where Peter Parker is behind the mask. When the limited comic series Secret Wars ends this summer, however, Morales will re-emerge as the official Spider-Man on the page.

Bendis, the writer and co-creator of the new Spider-Man comics wants fans to know that Morales will indeed be the main superhero and no longer an alternate version of the web-slinger. “Our message has to be it’s not Spider-Man with an asterisk,” Bendis told the Daily News, “it’s the real Spider-Man for kids of color, for adults of color and everybody else.”

This Marvel announcement comes just days after a leaked legal licensing agreement between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment was released by Wikileaks. The document describes that one of the “core elements” of Spider-Man is that “he is a heterosexual Caucasian male.” According to Variety, the contract, which went into effect in Sept. 2011, also includes “Mandatory Spider-Man Character Traits.” One states that the character is “not a homosexual (unless Marvel has portrayed that alter ego as a homosexual).”

Marvel and Sony declined to comment.

While Morales may not replace Peter Parker on the big screen any time soon, he has portrayed Spider-Man on the small screen. Donald Glover voiced Morales in two episodes of Disney XD’s series “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors.”

Bendis told Vulture last year that he hopes to see Morales appear as Spider-Man on the big screen one day, saying that whichever studio is in charge “should pursue it as quickly as possible.” Andrew Garfield also supported passing down the spidey suit to Morales in an interview last year. “Miles Morales was a huge moment in this character’s comic book life. And I do believe that we can do that,” Garfield told Comic Book Resources.

‘Agent Carter,’ Marvel’s Secret Agent Show, Starts 2015 Off Right

That sound you heard as 2015 arrived was a long exhale of relief.

It feels good to give the one of the first new shows of the year, “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” a positive review. Not only is it preferable to start the TV year on an optimistic note, there were plenty of reasons to be particularly worried about this property, thus I’m especially happy it didn’t go awry.

The rocky first season of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” provided a cautionary tale that lasted the better part of a season and made it clear that bringing Marvel universe characters to the small screen is no easy task. Though “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has gotten a lot better (huzzah!), many of those improvements came too late for a sizable chunk of the show’s viewers, who didn’t return for the stronger and more focused second season.

Despite that welcome uptick in quality, it wasn’t unreasonable to worry about whether Marvel TV shows were capable of coming out of the gate strong. DC TV properties like “Arrow” and “The Flash” felt far more assured than “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” did in its early going; the two CW shows figured out what they wanted to accomplish very quickly, and that confidence has continued to help both ride out any week-to-week turbulence. That said, “Gotham” proves that DC shows (and superhero programs in general) can still have a lot of trouble with tone and execution. The Fox drama remains uncertain of what it wants to be and who it wants to be about, and right now, it doesn’t consistently do anything except serve as unexceptional “brand management,” as EW’s Jeff Jensen wrote.

She’s not exactly Batman, but these days, Peggy Carter’s pop-culture profile is at least comparable to that of the Green Arrow, James Gordon or The Flash. The espionage agent is obviously a longtime part of the Marvel comic-book universe, but her inclusion in both “Captain America” movies made her much more famous, and when “Agent Carter” was announced, I was torn: Sure, it might be a cool show, but what if it was a high-profile train wreck? Not Peggy!

My fondness for the character runs deep: I think “Captain America: The First Avenger” is the best movie to have emerged from the post-“Iron Man” Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Carter, who is so warmly and ably portrayed by Hayley Atwell, provides some of the reasons that rock-solid, emotionally sensitive and exciting origin story works so well. A failure to do right by Carter would have been a particularly painful. To stumble when inventing mostly new characters, as “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” did, is regrettable but understandable. To mess up a well-known character who is already beloved, who fits into a known universe and who possesses so much potential — well, a TV train wreck just didn’t bear contemplating, especially given that Carter is one of the few complex, compelling women in the overwhelmingly male MCU.

Happily, my apprehensions quickly faded away as I watched the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” on New Year’s Day. The drama is every bit as brisk and engaging as its lead character, and I can only list one real objection to the show: its brevity. The first season of “Agent Carter” will consist of only eight episodes, so when Carter’s adventures end in a couple of months, I’m betting many of us will feel as though it ended too soon.

Even so, telling one story in a limited amount of time seems like a very Peggy Carter thing to do. Crisp, entertaining efficiency is kind of her thing.

The downside of the short run is that it might not allow “Agent Carter” to explore the show’s supporting characters in detail, which is a bit of a shame. The cast around Atwell is excellent, particularly Enver Gjokaj of “Dollhouse” as a fellow agent in the post-war Strategic Scientific Reserve (a cover for a covert spy agency). Dominic Cooper swoops in from the MCU to have fun playing the rakish Howard Stark again, but I found that James D’Arcy, who plays Stark’s butler, Jarvis, quietly stole the show out from under his flashy boss.

It’s nice to see the cast rounded out with solid players, but the soul of the show is Peggy Carter, and “Agent Carter” quickly and intelligently begins to add depth and texture to the character, who hides a well of sadness under her chipper British exterior. When the series begins, Carter is restless and frustrated within the confines of the sexist boys’ club that is the post-war SSR (a situation that was glimpsed in the Marvel One Shot also titled “Agent Carter”). Her boss and co-workers are often callous and condescending to her, yet “Agent Carter” is never dour or bitter. The show clearly wants to be an energetic slice of period escapism, and it supplies spy-game derring-do with energetic efficiency. Atwell carries the show with forthrightness and aplomb, and there are grace notes that quietly remind the audience that Peggy is still mourning Captain America (who, in this time frame, is a “Cap-sicle” at the bottom of the ocean).

The secret-agent tales in these episodes aren’t particularly new or original; the plots usually revolve around the usual MacGuffins and glowing orbs and chases and fights in warehouses. However executive producers and showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas do a good job of parceling out the show’s overall story into smaller, episodic servings, and “Agent Carter” barrels along confidently in its first couple of installments. The period details generally look swell, and the direction of the show is not only energetic but recalls the classic aesthetic of the first Cap film, as is only appropriate. (See the note below for more on that.)

“Agent Carter” doesn’t reinvent the spy game on TV, but it’s a crackling start to what I can only hope is a long-running, female-centered Marvel adventure tale. The comic-book company has several more TV series in the works (“Daredevil,” “A.K.A. Jessica Jones” and “Luke Cage” among them), and so far, Peggy Carter’s adventures are making me feel optimistic about what’s coming next.

Note: Louis D’Esposito, who directed the Peggy Carter Marvel One Shot, directed the first episode of “Agent Carter” and Joe Russo, co-director of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” directed the second hour.” During the summer, I read news reports that Marvel was exploring the idea of having “Captain America: The First Avenger” director Joe Johnston direct an episode of “Agent Carter,” but a Marvel spokesperson confirmed that Johnston did not helm an episode this season.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” airs its first two episodes 8 p.m. ET Tuesday on ABC.

Ryan McGee and I discussed “Agent Carter,” “Downton Abbey,” “Galavant” and “Empire” on the first Talking TV podcast of 2015. The podcast here, on iTunes and below.
