Why does c-lister like Black Panther get his own movie in the MCU but not Daredevil who's stuck with a Netflix show no one watches? He's b-list at least.
The Netflix series is the best thing the MCU has ever produced. Why would I want less content that would be plagued with executive meddling? Just so I can feel good about "my" company making more money?
Yeah, hence why doing a movie again on a movie that wasn't remembered fondly of tends to be a risky move. They tend to stick with an Unknown-to-normies (ie Black Panther, GotG, Antman, etc) or people who are in the Avengers lineup. (Even then, Hulk never got another movie.)
Unknowns tend to pay off really well.
Every character they've picked for Netflix is better-suited to long-form storytelling with maybe the exception of Iron Fist.
You aren't going to get street-level MCU movies. Even Ant-Man which was relatively small and contained was about a mad scientist selling super-suits to HYDRA, these movies have a certain expectation of scale and scope that this point can't be changed. Whatever the fuck Black Panther is going to be about is going to be big and loud.
Spider-Man is the one wild card here, I'll be interested to see what they do with him.
You don't need to. DD doesn't need ten hours of build-up before he puts on his costume.
You could do a Netflix show about Captain America and devote an hour to his friendship with Bucky or an hour about the Red Skull's dad but it's not needed to tell a proper story.
>but not Daredevil who's stuck with a Netflix show no one watches?
Daredevil was so successful, Netflix greenlit season 2 the day season one premiered. You're a faggot.
Besides the netflix format means development can actually happen. And short of Winter Soldier, Daredevil is by far the best thing in the MCU.
I don't need a full movie, but it would be cool if he at least had a cameo on the big screen. Same with any of the Marvel TV squad rly. Night Nurse in JJ was nice, but a bit of a tease. Idk, I just want all the toys to play together while I clap my hands.
>but it's not needed to tell a proper story.
No, but see, what you were able to get from the use of so much time to devote to establishing character things and such is that there's a lot more going on than a simple plot. There's a lot of foreshadowing in lines that wouldn't work as well if it was cut to less content with them as essentials. A lot of the foreshadowing works because it doesn't hold your hand through it but lets the relevance settle on you.
I honestly think daredevil works better in a series format.
>Street level super powers so budget isn't blown on SFX.
>Allows more build up and I prefer the pacing.
>More subplots can be inserted in the main one.
Kinda disagree about Iron Fist, considering out of all The Defenders he has THEDEEPESTLORE, it would be best served in an episodic format, although the fact that he doesn't have a film budget could hinder it, they'll need to be creative.
Also, it would help to show the legacy, for all those people salty he's a white guy.
>a Netflix show no one watches?
Son, Daredevil was one of the most successful Netflix shows. I remember going to a movie theater a couple of months ago wearing my Daredevil shirt and the normie ticket taker complimented me on the shirt saying "that show is so good."
Lots of people watch it, they needed a black hero, and having a Netflix show is better than a movie anyway because of more time and more freedom.
A Daredevil movie probably would've been generic as fuck, the only thing it had to gain is special effects and interacting with other MCU heroes which doesn't matter because of Punisher and the Defenders
>it would help to show the legacy, for all those people salty he's a white guy
>previous Iron Fist was also a white guy
>the most powerful Immortal Weapon, the Prince of Orphans, is also a white guy
Netflix is the best place for Black Panther
Netflix wouldn't be able to do Wakanda justice with how small their budgets are, plus the netflix shows all have to take place in NYC. A NYC based street level Black Panther show has plenty of comic material you could adapt for, and would be pretty awesome, but the big appeal for him is still Wakanda.
I'm assuming the point he's trying to make is that TV shows are better suited for comic adaptations, since, graphic novels aside, most comics come out in a serial nature, making TV inherently better suited for adapting them than Movies.
The obvious difference being the cost of CGI limiting certain characters and settings from being suitable for a TV budget.
If anyone should be race-bended it should be John, if not East-Asian, South-Asian or another non-white race. Not another white guy. Danny being essentially a third-generation immigrant to K'un-Lun it makes sense him, Orson and Wendell are the same race. Admittedly, it looks a bit sharp with three white guys, but the comic balanced it out well with the duels spliced throughout. i.e- When Davos lost to Wendell, but Danny lost to Cobra.
Easy. Black Panther's a World-level superhero. Daredevil's Street-level. They save movies for the big concept stuff that needs that blockbuster budget to be done justice. And Spider-man too, by default.
Also watch that Netflix series nigga it's fucking GOOD. And I say that as a dude who thinks Daredevil kinda sucks.
You say that like a Kingpin cookoff to the death wouldn't be the shit.
>Sir, I recommend this sauce for marinating the chicken.
>Thank you, Wesley
>black panther is c-list
>having a netflix original series is bad
>nobody watches Daredevil
>Daredevil is a b-lister
STOP IT, PLEASE! GOD DAMN IT, I THINK I'M BEING TRIGGERED, IS THIS WHAT BEING TRIGGERED IS LIKE?
