Mostly MCU Reviews
My articles from the week
Just about everything this week is Luke Cage-related. First is a non-spoiler review of the first half of the series (episodes 1-6), followed by a review of episode 1, “Moment of Truth.” Between being busy and both Netflix and the Internet not cooperating I still haven’t finished the season yet, but I will do that either today or tomorrow.
The sole non-Luke Cage article is my “retro-review” of Captain America: Civil War. Do you like it better in theaters or at home? Personally, I kinda think it’s awesome in either place!
Links to news articles and blog posts about the MCU
Spider-Man: Homecoming wrapped filming this week. I wonder if this means they will be able to attach a trailer to Doctor Strange or Rogue One.
Iron Fist received a premiere date: March 17, 2017.
If you are at New York Comic-Con, be sure to pick up a copy of the Iron Fist Prequel Comic from the Marvel booth.
The Punisher has begun filming.
The Defenders is set to begin filming in mid-November.
Would you like to see a crossover between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel Netflix? Jeph Loeb says it might happen…
It’s confirmed: the new S.H.I.E.L.D. Director is Jeffrey Mace, a.k.a. the Patriot.
In somewhat unsurprising news, Marvel apparently has plans for Blade. My vote would be a “passing of the torch” Netflix series in which the original Blade (Eric Brooks, maybe played by Wesley Snipes again) must train his daughter, Fallon Grey, to carry on the family business.

Anything not related to the MCU that I find interesting
Wolverine 3 has been re-titled Logan.
So Paramount is still suing over Star Trek: Axanar. They seriously need to drop it before it turns the fan-base off... or at least more than it already has...
So apparently Disney is really going to make a live-action version of Mulan, which now has a release date of November 2, 2018. I suppose if they’re going to do The Lion King, we shouldn’t be surprised about anything else! Think they might ask Ming-Na Wen back for it?
