    Not only that, but he's been actively involved in promoting this show during the first season at Con Panels. Not only would he produce a show not set in the MCU, he is producing a show not set in the MCU.

    That's because they needed Marvel TV's approval. If they had the tv rights all along, do you think Jeff Loeb and the rest of Marvel TV would come to Fox to assist them? Not likely.

    the netflix shows won't last much longer.disney is trying to put netfix out of business.

    and why would disney produce show outside of MCU when they don't have to anymore.

    donner is primry producer after hawley.and she is gone once sale is finaized.

    oh and already precedence for disney axing shows they didn't produce.star wars the clone wars.both x related shows were primly fox productions.
    and this assumes they want to use x related characters for tv and not films.
    legion and gifted happened because of them deciding to use characters for tv
    they had no plans for films.the model is subject to change since soon there will be no fox.

    Yes they are. What made you think they aren't? A quick google search will tell that they are set in the MCU.

    My point is that Marvel is producing this show. They're not the primary producer but, in the television model, the producer is someone hired anyway. Loeb is executive producer of every Marvel Television show whether set in the MCU or not.

    Its probably because Marvel wants more percentage from the profit that the show is going to get and of course Fox did approach them to make these shows possible. I highly doubt they are putting more effort to this than Aos and Runaways.

    That's great. Even though I wasn't a fan of The Bad Batch, I did love her previous film.

    Yeah, lot of good news coming out of the TCAs, particularly liked the bit about David now being the sane man living in an insane world.

    Thanks for the links and awesome poster. I really enjoy his unique art style.

    I like the new casting choice of Navid Negahban. Didn't know who this was at first then remembered him from the first season of Homeland. I can see him sliding into this role fairly easily.

    I 2nd the interest over some of the social commentary the show could be looking to exhibit in season 2. Anyone else remember Jeph Loeb's comment at I think a comic-con of some sort where he said he hoped David isn't a villain? I wonder how far this will go...

    Just based on Homeland vs WW/Ballers, I thought that Said would be a bit more charismatic and gel well with the kind of quirky sensibilities and theatricality that Hawley has and desires of his actors, particularly when describing how Farouk is very dapper and you never see his eyes. That being said, I think Navid is a solid replacement and you ultimately don’t want an actor that’s just gonna bring down the production.

    I can't wait to see if they would change Shadow King's look and become more similar to his comic book counterpart. Legixn as well.

    Well, it's nice to know that David can fit into the orb.

    Didn't expect a gif that fast. All I'd seen minutes before were stills of these scenes.
