Just a few short days before the release of Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3, it’s been reported by Deadline that Netflix has cancelled Marvel’s Iron Fist, and will not be renewing it for a third season. However, it’s been added that Marvel’s Iron Fist could find a new home on the upcoming Disney streaming service. Additionally, Finn Jones’ portrayal of Danny Rand will still continue through the other Netflix Marvel shows, as well. So, keep your fingers crossed on that Heroes for Hire, or Daughters of the Dragon crossover.

Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners. We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.”

Pull Box: October 10

Something about Batman in this case seems looser than usual. There’s more arrogance in the way he talks. A more knowing rapour with his confidants, and a trust in himself that seems strange given what’s happening in the main Batman book. But, it’s nice and it certainly works here. The mysteries with Kobra, Karl Twist, and Two-Face, as well as what Jim Gordon has to do with them seem interesting with little in the way of answers so far. Just a trail that we’re following alongside Batman.
HM
Something about seeing Hawkman and The Atom together again gave me actual goosebumps. Two of the oldest friends in all of comic books, these two have seen the brightest and the darkest times, and it was great to have them work together again. Hawkman has been a fantastic read so far, and it just keeps getting more fun as the adventure gets more crazy.
PM
Plastic Man is not the smartest hero in the world, but this book has made him down right dumb. He’s a low IQ gangster who seems to have not been in the hero business for very long, yet in this universe, he’s just been stuck in an egg form for several years. Unless this is meant as a prequel to all of the other stuff. Which is entirely possible. The only issue is the number of sub-plots that don’t seem to be getting much attention. The Cabal. Pado. Granite Janet. A little too much happening at once.
SM
Rogol Zaar is a very imposing villain, and despite his minimal origin he’s already made enemies of some of the most powerful and intelligent people in the Universe. And he seems to just keep making that mistake over and over again. When he does finally get defeated, it’s going to be in the most decisive way, and that will be quite satisfying to see.
FL
These new forces latching onto the Rogue’s have made each of them so far infinitely more relatable and sentimental. It’s allowed us all into their minds, and shown that the Flash’s villains are more than just one-note bad guys. They’re real people that were pulled into a world of advanced technology, and broken pasts. I wonder which force will be next, with Mick Rory, aka Heatwave taking on the Sage Force?
GGPR
Now that Lord Drakkon is all handled, it’s nice to see Go Go Power Rangers getting back to basics, exploring its relationships and character development with a younger team of Power Rangers. This book has always seemed more emotional and raw in a way, and it’s a lot of fun to read. Now with power shenanigans happening, it can get even more weird and fun.

James Gunn Working on New Suicide Squad Film

gunn

After being fired from Marvel Studios, in what many believe was an unwarranted move, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have confirmed that James Gunn is in final talks to write, and possibly direct a new Suicide Squad film for the studio. Gavin O’Connor had previously been announced as the writer-director on the sequel, but it would seem things have changed on that front, with the Guardians of the Galaxy director now taking the chair.

Little is known at this time, but stay tuned for updates as this story is still currently developing.

Brendan Fraser (The Mummy), the voice of Robotman and Cliff Steele actor for the upcoming Doom Patrol series for DC Universe, took to the New York Comic-Con stage last night, and revealed that Matt Bomer (White Collar) will voice Negative Man and play Larry Trainor in flashbacks for the upcoming series.

In the comics, Negative Man is a founding member of the Doom Patrol. Trainor was exposed to a radioactive field while piloting a test plane, leaving him radioactive, and giving him the ability to release a negatively charged energy being from his body. The being can fly at high speed, cause solid objects to explode, and pass through solid materials. After his accident, Trainor is forced to wear special bandages over his entire body to protect bystanders from his radioactivity.
