    Late to the party but Zack Snyder wants to do an Elektra series in the MCU and Elodie Yung wants to return to the role.

    DD S3 I agree with common consensus was the best season of comic television made yet. Legion S1 is probably better but is it's own unique thing moreso than a comic show.

    I disagree with common consensus in that I wouldn't mind seeing a Snyder 1-Shot not tied to the MCU but purely enjoyed as a self-contained film if an adaptation of Elektra Lives. He did a decent enough job with Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, and MoS for the most part (the whole destruction of buildings criticism towards the end was ridiculous although it had other faults). I didn't mind BvS as much as some although I only bothered to watch the directors cut of it. It had it's faults like most tentpole movies if not less I think. It just wasn't as much of a casual crowd pleaser film which I don't hold against it.

    Sucker Punch I haven't seen but from the previews it seems the intent was there but just went a bit too overboard with the fantasy aspect if supposed to be grounded towards the end.

    Man, I've been on a serious Daredevil kick. Went and got some TPB's of DD, I got "The Man Without Fear" and re-read "Born Again" by Frank Miller. Such good stuff. Picked up some of the Marvel Knight's comics as well. Echo was a pretty interesting character.

    Out of the ones I've read, they haven't featured Bullseye. Any reccomendations on some DD graphic novels? I'm also rewatching the show. This was always my favorite Marvel TV series, well so far. None have came close to it yet for me personally.

    Here's some recommendations I have, not sure if you looked at these yet:

    * Guardian Devil (Smith/Quesada) - Sort of the modern reset of the Daredevil series under the Marvel Knights imprint; Significant appearance for Bullseye
    * Parts of a Hole (Mack/Quesada) - Next story after Guardian Devil
    * Daredevil: Yellow (Loeb/Sale) - Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale retelling of the early years of Daredevil/Matt Murdock. Sort of like a Daredevil: Year One story. I haven't gone back and read it in a while, so it might not hold up but I really enjoyed it at the time. At the very least, I love Sale's artwork.

    I'm not a big DD reader, but I thought Mark Waid did some cool stuff with Bullseye in his run. I'd really recommend reading the whole run, but I think the Bullseye stuff comes in around Vol. 5 of the collected editions.

    If you want classic DD read the Miller run if you haven't yet. The issue where Bullseye faces off against Elektra is a classic. There's a cool issue right before the Miller run from I think it was Roger McKenzie where he kicks Black Widow's ass.

    I literally just read thru all of Brian Michael Bendis and Ed Brubaker‘s runs. Haven’t enjoyed Soule’s start...

    I read "Parts of a Whole" and "Underboss" graphic novels under the Marvel Knight's banner, and I actually just ordered Guardian Devil online, since no stores around me had it. And I'm interested in checking out Daredevil Yellow eventually for sure. Tim Sale definitely has an interesting art style (I only know his art from Superman: All Seasons.)

    And I definitely want to check out more of Frank Miller's stuff. The Man Without Fear/Born Again are my two favorite I've read so far.

    And I'll definitely get around to checking out Mark Waid's stuff too. Thanks for the reccomendations!

    If you loved those stories, his run is pretty much of that quality just more of it. It's the run that really formed the Daredevil we know today.

    Hi people. :) How are you?

    Since you're talking about great comic runs, are you reading the current ongoing by Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto? It's amazing and it's been a critical and commercial success. Totally worth it, if you're interested!

    Would have been cool. Were they ever planning on doing a Season 4? Or did they know this was the last season and just wrapped it up. It felt like a good ending but obviously left it open for more.

    It's a good season to end on, but I have to imagine the showrunners had plans for more. Especially with Fisk and Dex still being around. Hell, the Luke Cage showrunners expected a Season 3 renewal from Marvel and/or Netflix, but we saw how that ended, too.

    Yes, they were apparently blindsided by the cancellation. One of the writers posted a pic on social media of them all together in the writers room breaking S4 when it was announced.

    Speaking of Netflix characters, I think there's a way to bring the Punisher back into the regular MCU without compromising his character. I had thought about this while watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That movie is PG-13, but the way Bucky Barnes was used in the movie could be the same way Frank Castle could be reintroduced. With Bucky 100% now a good guy, Frank Castle could easily fill the role of "violent killer" but still somewhat in an anti-hero role.

    I don't know. Just a thought.

    How I wish we could've have another season on Netflix, or even on Disney+...Only if they'd keep the cast, though...Afraid they'd water it down, anyway.

    I believe I never liked a superhero show so much; easily my favorite from Netflix, even though I loved the Punisher and part of Jessica Jones.

    Because Disney doesn't care about discs. Last Netflix season released on Blu-ray in US was Luke Cage season 1. Iron Fist was released in a few countries but not here. But yeah, they ain't coming

    I suspect Netflix also doesn't like releasing these on physical media because you could theoretically unsubscribe after you get it.
