My articles from the week
This week I did not publish the second part of my Iron Fist review (looking at Colleen Wing), so expect that on Monday.
Instead, we have expectations and review for the first episode in the Framework pod of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4: “What If…” (4x16).

The Defenders now has an official premiere date: August 18! I was kind of expecting it a couple months sooner so The Punisher could release around October or so, but I’ll take it.
Jessica Jones season 2 will start filming this Monday.
Daredevil season 3 will also start filming this year.
Here is the newly-released synopsis for The Inhumans:
“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”
It makes sense for the majority of the series to be set on Earth (for budgetary purposes), but I hope they will set at least part of the first 2 episodes (the “movie”) in Attilan.
Cloak and Dagger has received a 10-episode order.
And at the same time, Freeform has also ordered New Warriors to series. The two shows may run at the same time in the Winter 2018. Thus far we know that there will be 6 characters, one of whom will be Squirrel Girl, but that’s all we know.
