Marvel’s Jeff Loeb confirms Iron Fist season 2 for later this year, but there are no plans for more Defenders

With Jessica Jones season two arriving earlier this year, Luke Cage season two set to land later this month, and Daredevil season three expected later in the year, it had been expected that we’d have to wait until 2019 to see Finn Jones’ Danny Rand back for the second season of Iron Fist.

Well, it seems that isn’t the case after all, as during a Reddit Ama session, Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb has revealed that the show will be back later this year.

At this point, it’s a little unclear whether that means we have to wait until early 2019 for Daredevil season three, or if Netflix is going to treat us to four seasons of its Marvel shows this year (or perhaps even five with The Punisher season two?).

One series we definitely won’t be seeing again any time soon however is The Defenders,

Season 2 Of Iron Fist Rumored To Be A Drastic Improvement With Fewer Episodes

If the latest Reddit tip is to be believed, Marvel and Netflix have adopted a ‘less is more’ approach to Iron Fist season 2.

As reported by McU Exchange, online sleuth ‘defenders_throwaway’ claims that Danny Rand’s second solo adventure will contain fewer episodes and better fight scenes, with Jessica Henwick’s Colleen Wing said to be the one true standout.

All of this is subject to debate, of course, though we should stress that the Redditor’s alleged scoops have proved eerily accurate in the past – hell, he/she has already relayed a ton of information pertaining to Daredevil season 3. But on the opposite end of Hell’s Kitchen, Iron Fist is supposedly gearing up for a “top-notch” second season, despite relying on a “very tired trope” for one of its primary plot points.

Iron Fist is top notch. Shorter season. Better pacing. better everything, really. they rely on

Having been shooting for the past seven months, actor Finn Jones has revealed via social media that filming on the second season of Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist season two has now wrapped.

“It’s 4.37am and after an incredible, long and physical 7 month winter shoot in NY, we have wrapped,” wrote Jones on Instagram. “It’s gonna be so weird not seeing all your faces day after day, I’m really gonna miss you all – Greatful to everyone involved, we came at this season with fierce ambition, relentless work ethic, passion and optimism. I think the story we’ve told and the journey the characters have been on this season is unlike anything seen before. I’m proud, exhausted, but above all, ready for all of our hard work to be enjoyed across the world. Congratulations and Thank You!”

Alice Eve cast in Marvel’s Iron Fist season 2

When Marvel’s Iron Fist returns to Netflix for its second season, it will have Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) among its ranks.

Eve will star as a regular role throughout the season, but Marvel is staying mum right now on who exactly her character is and whether she’s an ally or enemy of the immortal Iron Fist. However, a recent report made just days ago suggests Marvel may have decided on a female villain for the second season.

“We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist,” Marvel’s head of television and series executive producer Jeph Loeb said. “Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”

“We’re over the moon that Alice Eve is joining us this season,” said Raven Metzner, Iron Fist‘s showrunner and executive producer.

The Boy With the Topknot – top notch with a dash of schmaltz

This adaptation of Sathnam Sanghera’s memoir of growing up Sikh in the 60s is brave and funny ... but romantic additions detract from the love letter to a family

A young boy in a vest sits on a chair leaning forward so that he is looking at the floor. A woman’s hands gently and lovingly apply oil to his long black hair. So long, it has never been cut. His mother smooths it, combs it, twists it and ties it up, above his head, in a knot.

Now it’s 15 or so years later. A handsome man with short black hair in a busy newspaper office is deciding whether to interview Samuel L Jackson or Simon Cowell. (He chooses Cowell, perhaps because more people will read it, perhaps because it means he gets to go there in a Ferrari.)

Sacha Dhawan, star of The Boy With the Topknot: ‘Why didn’t I do this sooner?’

The actor nearly turned down the starring role in the BBC’s primetime drama because it felt too close to his own roots. So why did he change his mind?

Sacha Dhawan is exaggerating, I think, when he tells me he spent most of his life embarrassed about being Asian. But then he talks about joining in the “Paki banter” at school to fit in, trying to “join in with the lads”. He remembers his English nanny making him roasts, not being able to speak Punjabi to his aunties, and being called a coconut – “you know, ‘brown on the outside, white on the inside’” – by his family.

“I felt like I was running away, not just from my culture, but from stuff that was going on at home.” He winces. “I was just not manning up and taking responsibility. My mum and dad were struggling with stuff, but I was

Sherlock Star Hopes To Replace Jodie Whittaker In Doctor Who One Day

The internet is still reeling from the shocking news that Jodie Whittaker has been cast in Doctor Who. As the first female to ever play the iconic role of the Doctor, everyone seems to have their own opinion on it, with a vocal minority of the fanbase outraged at the decision but the general consensus still being that it’s a step in the right direction for the show. However you feel about having a woman portray the Doctor, there’s no denying that Whittaker’s a talented individual. Just watch Broadchurch for proof of that.

That’s not to say that some of the other names rumored to be in the running for the part wouldn’t have been exciting choices as well though. For instance, many were hoping to see Tilda Swinton nab the role, or even David Harewood. And then, of course, there’s Sacha Dhawan. The

Iron Fist Season 2: Production Begins December, Plus Why They Switched Showrunners

Last week, it was revealed that Iron Fist would be getting a new showrunner. Out was its original showrunner, Scott Buck, and in was Sleepy Hollow’s Raven Metzner. So what was the reason behind this change. If you listened to our latest episode of Los Fanboys, we wondered whether or not the quality of ABC’s Inhumans (which Scott Buck is showrunning) had to do with Buck getting replaced. It was bad enough that Iron Fist was as poorly received as it was, but coupled together with what looks to be a disaster with Inhumans, it looks like a trend that Marvel may want to avoid.

However, speaking with The Tracking Board, Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb batted down such theories, stating:

Iron Fist Season 2 Expected To Start Shooting This Year; Marvel TV Boss Weighs In On Showrunner Change

Will Marvel launch four standalone superhero series onto Netflix in 2018?

The industry giant is about to notch up a rather impressive achievement later this year, when Thor: Ragnarok will become the third McU instalment of 2017 – after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, of course. But if Sacha Dhawan (Davos) is to be believed, Iron Fist season 2 will begin filming in December ahead of a possible premiere sometime next year. The same release window that Marvel has purportedly earmarked for new instalments of Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Luke Cage.

It should be noted that Dhawan is simply making an estimation here, and when you consider that Marvel only announced plans for a second season at Sdcc last weekend – replete with a new showrunner, but more on that later – the actor’s comments shouldn’t be taken as gospel. Per Screen Geek:

Doctor Who: Jodie Whittaker Cast As First Female Doctor!

For years, fans have been asking for a female Doctor in the sci-fi series Doctor Who. After all, the Doctor is just an alien, so the actual sex that he respawns as is kind of a non-issue. Yet despite this fact, for decades, his regenerations have exclusively led to male-looking counterparts. Prior to the announcement that Peter Capaldi would take on the mantle as the 12th Doctor, many hoped that that would the one that would shepherd in a female Doctor. Obviously, that wasn’t the case, though Capaldi brought a great deal to the character, and that certainly can’t be overlooked.

However, this December’s Christmas special will make way for some great changes. For starters, longtime showrunner Steven Moffat will be stepping down and passing on the reins to Broadchurch showrunner Chris Chibnall. This would seem to be an even more perfect time to change things up

Phoebe Waller-Bridge now bookmakers’ favourite for the next Doctor in Doctor Who

With Peter Capaldi set to make his exit from Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas Special, the speculation as to who will be the next actor to take on the iconic role of the Time Lord is really heating up.

Although Death Valley star Kris Marshall was widely tipped to have already secured the role of the Thirteenth Doctor, we now have a new bookies’ favourite in Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, while Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum) and Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones) have both entered the betting after an influx of bets pointing towards the first ever female Doctor.

“A female Doctor Who definitely looks to be in the making as women dominate the betting after a massive reshuffle off the back of Peter Capaldi filming his final scenes as the time lord,” said Aoife Heffron of BoyleSports. “When the news broke that Capaldi would be stepping down as Doctor Who,

Apparently The Next Doctor Who Has Already Been Cast

It’s no secret that Peter Capaldi’s days as Doctor Who are numbered. There’s 3 episodes left to go before season 10 wraps up and at that point, the titular character will regenerate once again, allowing a new actor to step into the role. To date, the BBC’s remained quiet on who exactly that fresh face will be, with tons of names being rumored for the part but no one confirmed just yet.

Will it be a female for the first time? Another male? Someone unexpected? A longtime fan pick? We really have no idea, but from what we understand, the network’s already made their decision. That’s according to former showrunner Russell T Davies, who spoke to YouTube channel Andy Vision. While he wouldn’t name a name – obviously – he did say that he knows who’s been cast, meaning that an actor has already been selected.

26 new UK TV shows to look out for

Louisa Mellor Jun 1, 2017

Some exciting new UK drama and comedy commissions are making their way to TV over the next year or so…

We know, we know. You still have two episodes of Fargo season two before you can think about starting season three. You’ve already fallen behind on American Gods. Your planner memory is chock-a-block with Big Little Lies and that Oj Simpson thing and some Spanish prison series your workmate bullied you into recording. You’re struggling to make time for Twin Peaks. New Game Of Thrones is just around the corner. And guess what, Netflix UK have just added a whole new season of It’s Always Sunny, those sods. You need a list of new TV show recommendations like you need a hole in the head.
