Marvel has been pretty good about paying respect to character creators or writers who really helped shape/redefine a popular character. In the first Daredevil movie--yes, it gets slammed these days but when it was released everyone loved it--the elder Murdoch's last fight was against some schmoe named John Romita, Jr.. *laugh*

Speaking of Dr. Strange--a movie I am hoping beyond hope will be well-made--I can't think of who should be the Ancient One but Christoph Waltz would be a wonderful Baron Mordo...or perhaps Mads Mikkelsen (who was pretty darned good as Dr. Lecter on that NBC show). hrm....John Lone, perhaps? You would definitely want someone Chinese, Tibetan, or Nepalese to be true to the character. *shrug* We'll just have to see.

What's the over/under on Mr. Murdoch making a cameo on Agents of Shield?

I think that Waltz would be perfect as Mordo. tweaking his origin to make him German instead of Transylvanian could tie him into Captain America.

and for Clea?

Not a bad choice for Clea. I would go with Eva Green, myself, and Stana Katic for Umar (if the introduce her).

Incidentally, Mr. Cox (the star of the show) has stated on the record that he would love to join the MCU. I don't blame him, either--that would be good for his career.

He was better as Dr. Fate but then JL/JLU was a better series than Young Justice, which I never watched (but have seen clips).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxOEWdAw83M

coherent story tellling, loved the art. (I hated the manga Titans)

Best part was Karen killing Wesley! Hehe. Deborah Ann Woll is really great. I watched the first four seasons of Tru Blood, and she was good there, too. She's really did a nice job of going through the trauma for days afterwards.

It's a lot of fun seeing the differences between this and the issues of the comic that all this comes from. Many differences. A lot of the same characters, but tweaked.

Biggest, and best, difference is Foggy finding out. Really impossible to hide something like this in "real life". Much easier to let such things go in comics. Foggy surely handled it well. As pissed as he was for as long as he was, he had the right to be even more pissed for even longer. Funny, though, when he said, "You mean all those times I lied, you knew?! And you just played along?!" Well, dude, it's hard to claim the moral high ground in that scenario. heh

The heroin was called Steel Serpent. That's the name of an Iron Fist villain. He was Davos, son of Lei Kung, who taught Iron Fist. There was a dragon called Shou Lao the Undying. His heart was in a big bowl, and the energy of from it entered Shou Lao through a dragon-shaped hole in his chest. Daniel Rand killed Shou Lao by wrapping his arms around the dragon, blocking the hole with his chest, thus preventing the energy from getting into the dragon. His chest was branded with the dragon-shaped hole. (Then he slammed his hands into the heart in the bowl over and over, gaining the power of the Iron Fist.)

Ten years earlier, Davos failed to win the right to face Shou Lao. The winner of the martial arts contests was granted the honor of trying to defeat Shou Lao and become Iron Fist. (The guy who defeated Davos in the final match was Daniel Rand's father, who, for reasons he never gave, chose not to challenge Shou Lao.) But he ran off and challenged Shou Lao anyway. He also figured the way to defeat the dragon was to block the energies with his own body. But he couldn't take the pain long enough to kill the dragon, and dropped off. He got an incomplete brand. It was the dragon without the wings, which looks like a serpent. THE SAME SERPENT THAT IS ON THE HEROIN BAGS.

Madame Gao said her home was considerably farther away than China. I imagine she's from K'un-Lun, the mystical city where Daniel Rand lived from the ages of 9-19, and home of Lei Kung, Davos, and others. There were no women of power in K'un-Lun in the comic, so she's not anybody I know. But she sure packed a mean open-hand blow, eh? Very Happy

So easy to see how the Iron Fist show that's coming soon will tie in with DD.

Damn I can't believe Kingpin killed Ben!!! Talk about a major change from the comic!

Melvin is good. Cool to see him drawing up designs for his Gladiator costume.

Yes, Fisk and Vanessa were the best things about it.

Fisk, yes, but Vanessa was one of the few disappointments I had with the series. Her motivation doesn't make sense and she has no apparent agency/purpose outside of Fisk, serving primarly as a way to drive the plot as fast as possible where it concerns Fisk's partners. Sad that one of the weakest female characters (probably right between Mrs. Cardenas and Marci, who showed both an evolution in character and reason for it) went to one of the strongest female actors. I mean, I like Woll to an extent, but I have a hard time telling apart Karen and Jessica.

I have to say, I think it's Foggy that made the show for me. About as close to a perfect casting choice as they could've made without resurrecting Phillip Seymore Hoffman and shaving a few years off of him. Don't remember the homosocial aspect to their relationship from the comics, but then, I didn't read a whole lot of them or would've probably missed it at that age anyway. On a similar line, I wish they would've shed more light on Wesley's story.

Here's hoping to more Gao and/or Stick next season. And Target.

Jon Bernthal Will Play The Punisher In Daredevil Season 2!
Quote:
Jon Bernthal, whom io9 readers might be more familiar with as The Walking Dead’s Shane, will play Castle, “a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results”. Sounds like the Punisher will probably find himself at odds with Matt Murdock and friends — doubly so considering that the company also revealed the show’s logo for the second season, with the Daredevil logo riddled with bullet holes:
