    I'm hearing the Punisher will be the last Marvel Netflix show.

    Disney are apparently putting future shows on their streaming service and fully cutting ties with Netflix.

    What's your verdict on The Gifted? Watched the first episode, I liked it.

    It doesn't seem like The Punisher will be the last Marvel-Netflix show. Daredevil season 3 is about to start shooting this week and Iron Fist season 2 is scheduled to shoot next month.

    I like The Brave too, it's easily the better of the three shows. It also helps that Jaz isn't that bad to look at either.

    The way I understand it, the interconnected Marvel-Netflix shows will continue as planned, but any future streaming show based on a Marvel IP will go to the in-house streaming service unstead.

    In that regard, The Punisher will be the last new Marvel-Netflix show to go into production. So that corner of the MCU has gotten as big as it is going to get.

    It's Official: LORD OF THE RINGS TV Series Gets Multiple-Season Commitment at Amazon

    [​IMG]

    It's official: Amazon Studios is going to make a Lord of the Rings TV series.

    The retail giant and streaming outlet announced Monday that it has acquired global television rights to the Lord of the Rings franchise, based on the best-selling novels by J.R.R. Tolkien. Amazon has handed out a multiple-season commitment. The Amazon LOTR series will be produced in-house at Amazon Studios alongside the Tolkien Estate and Trust, publisher HarperCollins and Warner Bros. Entertainment's New Line Cinema.

    Amazon's LOTR series will be set in Middle Earth and explore new storylines preceding Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. The deal includes a potential additional spinoff series.

    The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Amazon's new head of scripted. “We are honored to be working with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on this exciting collaboration for television and are thrilled to be taking The Lord of the Rings fans on a new epic journey in Middle Earth.”

    The news comes 10 days after word leaked that Amazon Studios was exploring a potential TV series based on the fantasy series and subsequent feature film franchise, which was produced by New Line. The LOTR novels were named Amazon customers' favorite book of the millennium in 1999.

    The news comes four months after Warner Bros. and the Tolkien estate settled an $80 million lawsuit after a five-year battle. That happened after Warners offshoot New Line Cinema and the Tolkien estate waged a courtroom battle over profit participation from the film franchise that consisted of The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003), as well as 2013 prequel The Hobbit. The property is a multibillion-dollar worldwide franchise.

    "We are delighted that Amazon, with its longstanding commitment to literature, is the home of the first-ever multi-season television series for The Lord of the Rings,” said Matt Galsor, a representative for the Tolkien Estate and Trust and HarperCollins. “Sharon and the team at Amazon Studios have exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s original writings.”

    That Amazon Studios has emerged as a home for the LOTR TV series comes as little surprise given the genre-focused programming push Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has mandated. The retail giant and streaming platform has been on the hot seat for its lack of a breakthrough hit, with Yguado initially brought in earlier this year to oversee the development of genre fare.

    I was thinking that Netflix also co-produces them but if they're just solely the outlets or distributors, then Punisher could be the last Netflix-Marvel show to be distributed by Netflix.

    HITMAN TV Series in the Works at Hulu from JOHN WICK Creator

    [​IMG]

    Fox 21 and Hulu have teamed for a television series based on Hitman, the global best-selling video game from IO Interactive. A pilot script will be written by Derek Kolstad, creator and writer of the John Wick action film series who also penned the third one that will be released in 2019.

    Kolstad will be an executive producer along with Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon. The project will be overseen at Fox 21 by Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan and Kira Innes, and at Hulu by Jordan Helman. The hope is for Hitman to become a flagship series.

    Hitman has sold more than 25 million copies since being launched in 2000. It centers on Agent 47, a meticulous and lethal assassin with a mysterious backstory. The character has been the subject of two films released by Fox — 2007’s Hitman and 2015’s Hitman: Agent 47 — and the intention here is to hew closely to the mythology of the perennially popular video game.

    The latest game is simply called Hitman, and it sold 7 million copies. Two more Hitman games are in development at IO Interactive.

    LUCIFER is just killing it right now.

    The last 3 episodes have been vastly entertaining. It was great seeing a resolution to the Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer) storyline and Lucifer's reactions to her advances was hysterical. Then this latest episode with the reporter was a great standalone story.

    I think the plan currently is that any new properties will be generated by Disney but the properties currently in Netflix might stay there.

    That also might change.

    The writers for The Flash are inept. The first time Barry faces the villain of the episode, he allows her to get away because the episode would be a lot shorter if Barry actually used his powers. The next time he faces her they basically put a big spotlight on how he sometimes conveniently doesn't use his speed for the sake of the plot, and tried to make some sort of point out of it with another character. In a scene where Barry could have very easily stopped the villain again and saved the people, they tried to make a point that Ralph can't do both while Barry somehow gets beat up by slow moving, animated mannequin. It's almost like they're emphasizing just how bad the writing is... I was really scratching my head watching this episode. I liked the Wells stuff, but the rest of the episode might as well have been a long Microsoft Surface commercial.

    Oh yeah, lots of PIS (Plot Induced Stupidity to those not familiar with the acronym) and illogical commercial break villain escapes in the latest episode of The Flash. I've gotten used to these holes, it's a standard for the show. But I'm enjoying the lightheartedness approach of the season so far.
