Beyond The Defenders | The State of the Marvel Netflix Universe with Josh Wigler & Jim Gibbons

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jim Gibbons (@TheJimGibbons) are back together once more to talk about all things Marvel in their wrap-up show for THE DEFENDERS, the eight-episode limited series that combined the casts of DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE and IRON FIST into one package. Over the course of the podcast, Josh and Jim take the pulse of the Marvel Netflix Universe, read feedback from the listeners, sift through Josh’s interviews with creatives involved in the series (including Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox), and announce their plans for the near future: a two-part PUNISHER podcast, launching as soon as the series drops at some point in the coming weeks. As it stands, PUNISHER lacks a release date beyond the very enigmatic 2017, so expect those podcasts sooner than later.

    A Punisher Movie Podcast would be really, really cool. I agree with you guys about this season of Defenders, solid in the middle, but weak on the beginning and end.

    Great podcast!

    Can’t hardly wait for The Punisher. The Netflix MCU has nowhere to go but up. . . .

    I think the one key weakness that all the Netflix shows have, is they’re all very low-budget and this isn’t really a noticeable issue until we get to Iron Fist & The Defenders.

    There are only so many variations of stuntmen getting beaten up in a dimly-lit warehouse.

    The strength of the Netflix shows has been the casting (esp. Luke Cage) and I think the showrunners have been wise to give the actors more leeway, often saving scenes filled with bad dialogue & pacing.
