Marvel first collaborated with Netflix in 2013 to bring four television shows including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist as well as a mini-series in The Defenders. The collaboration also led to the making of a spinoff show in Jon Bernthal-led The Punisher, which was spun out from Daredevil season 2. Now, it appears that fans might get to see more of such spinoff shows joining the Netflix’s Marvel show lineup in future.
Speaking at the 2018 Television Critics Association press tour, Netflix vice-president Cindy Holland confirmed that there are discussions going on with Marvel for more spinoffs.
“There’s always an ongoing discussion as to whether we will spin off additional characters,” Holland said, according to Variety’s Debra Birnbaum.
However, she didn’t reveal any details about the characters which may be considered for the said spinoffs. It is expected that one of the upcoming spin-off shows could be based on Daughters of the Dragon, especially as the duo of Misty Knight and Colleen Wing is set to join forces in the upcoming second season of Iron Fist.
Misty Knight was first introduced in Luke Cage season one, while Colleen Wing debuted in Iron Fist season one as a street-fighter. Misty and Colleen are portrayed by Simone Missick and Jessica Henwick, respectively.
Talking about season 2 of Marvel’s Iron Fist, Danny Rand’s next adventure will see him stepping into Matt Murdock’s shoes to become the newest protector of New York. The upcoming season will introduce Alice Eve as Typhoid Mary, a new antagonist from the comic book storyline who has traditionally been a Daredevil villain. The new season will likely see Danny donning the classic yellow-mask getup.
Iron Fist season 2 will hit Netflix on Friday, September 7. Notably, Daredevil season 3, which is also in pipeline, is rumored to premiere sometime later in 2018.
