What exactly is "needed" when it comes to entertainment?

dauntingpixel1773d ago

why not? the character is very deep and has a rich history. he compliments daredevil almost as his exact opposite in the same war. i'm not surprised by this announcement after the great critical success season 2 of daredevil was. i'm all for this move

Needed?! Possibly not. Wanted?! F--k yes!! More Jon Bernathal is always good! Plus I would love to see his villains done right, Jigsaw, Bushwacker, The Russian etc.! Bring it on!! :D

Good move.

About time. How did they let this rumor float for so long without simply throwing it on?

dauntingpixel1773d ago

must have been working on the contract particulars etc.

Awesome. Bernthal's been one of the best surprises from this Netflix/Marvel team. Certainly deserves a spin-off more than Luke Cage does imo (when focusing on acting ability).

It was gut wrenching his portrayal.

Its pretty sad when a superhero TV series has more depth and emotion to their characters than their movie counterparts.
