Marvel’s Netflix Deal is Coming To an End and Future Shows Will Be Developed For Disney’s Streaming Service

Well, as much as I don’t want to subscribe to another stupid streaming service, it seems like Disney is going to make me. We already knew that Disney would be killing off their deal with Netflix and Hulu and that all of their films and TV shows, including all of the Star Wars and Marvel stuff, will exclusively stream on their upcoming streaming service.

Now, it seems like any future Marvel series that would normally be developed and streamed on Netflix will be moving to the Disney streaming service in the future. I know this was a safe assumption, but hearing confirmation of their plan for it in the Wall Street Journal was still a little jarring.

The Disturbing Appeal of the Punisher

When the Punisher first entered the world of Marvel Comics, in a 1974 issue of “The Amazing-Spider Man”, he was supposed to be called “Assassin.” The series’s writer, Gerry Conway, envisioned the character as a villain who would eventually become an antihero, but Marvel’s Stan Lee advised against the name, saying it could never be used for a good guy. Lee, at least as he told Alter Ego magazine in a 2005 interview, suggested “The Punisher” instead.

In both that 1974 issue, and the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil, (which premiered in April, 2016), the Punisher is undoubtedly an assassin, gunning down New York mobsters with impunity. But his appeal is all thanks to Stan Lee’s clever name: Here, finally, is a disciplinarian who will set the bad guys straight. Continue reading
