You're the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.  
++ Welp. Netflix just cancelled Daredevil, despite its third season being well-received and even considered the best season of the show yet. I guess this is the death of the Netflix Marvel universe after all. Only Jessica Jones and The Punisher are left, and who knows how long before both are ruthlessly axed as well. This is really shitty, mostly because it's obviously part of the streaming service wars (Netflix vs. Disney) and it's just a downward spiral of them just cancelling their entire Marvel lineup left and right. This also doesn't reflect well on Netflix in general because it further demonstrates that they'll cancel anything no matter how high the ratings. Their Marvel lineup was considered the best, the most successful, and the most popular and they're throwing it all away over some bullshit streaming war nonsense. Basically, it's a stupid business decision and Netflix, along with the Disney streaming service, can go fucking choke.

++ There has been an announcement about a global rewatch of Sense8 on Netflix in December in hopes of getting enough attention for there to be a third season made. This has been something that has been in the works for a while, and although I don't know how much of a success this'll do (since us getting a two-hour finale special was a damn miracle in itself), this kind of passion and determination is something I love to see in fandom. If nothing else though, whether Sense8 miraculously gets a third season it rightfully deserves or not, I just want Netflix to officially release the DVD/Blurays of the entire series. I think we deserve at least that much after everything.

++ Sony officially released a "romcom" trailer for Venom to promote the release of the Bluray. This is excellent marketing since it embraces the reasons why people ended up enjoying the movie in the first place, aka the Symbrock (Eddie/Venom) relationship. I'm just so pleased by this.

++ Meanwhile, we finally have the trailer for Marvel's Runaways second season. I'm so hype for it.

I was so surprised when I heard about Daredevil getting canceled. And whaaaat?? I'm going to have to watch that Venom trailer, OMG.

It was both surprising and not surprising at the same time. Due to them having previously cancelled Luke Cage, which was very successful, people were worried about the fates of the other Marvel shows, and this sadly confirms many people's fears. It's also surprising because Daredevil is what started the Marvel lineup in the first place, so them cancelling it is the official death knell of their Marvel lineup, for sure. :/

The Venom trailer is so awesome. It seems like it would be a fan edit of sorts, but nope, it's official and I love how they're just embracing it entirely. They know the audience and are marketing appropriately, and I am very thankful for that. :)

I wonder if the new Disney Marvel channel will try to recreate these shows? Or do they already have other characters in mind?

Haha, I watched it! They definitely know what their audience is about. Also reminded me of the Deadpool style of advertising.

I know that they're planning their own MCU television lineup (I think it's been confirmed they're doing a Loki television series with Tom Hiddleston back as Loki, and probably a Scarlet Witch series), but as for characters like Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, etc? I don't know, and I don't think they will, and quite frankly I don't think they should. I cannot imagine Jessica Jones without Jessica's hardass attitude in the way that Krysten Ritter does it and I wouldn't want her to watered it down, plus even on Netflix her show was a bit tamer than how it probably should've been in comparison to the comics themselves, but it still more mature content than is appropriate for Disney.

(It's why them trying to reclaim Marvel is so ridiculous, because Marvel properties are not all family-friendly, and shouldn't have to be, and yet they're trying to make it so which I think will backfire, but that's just my opinion.)

I think that's how they should advertise for the next Venom movie, less of the ~edgy tone that initial trailers had and more marketing towards what the audiences are expecting: hijinks with Eddie/Venom.

Oh, interesting. A family friendly Loki series? ugh, sounds kinda boring.

I didn't want to see Venom when I saw the initial trailers - all the fan content and fandom buzz is what is making me want to see it now! They should definitely ditch the edgy thing.

Yeah, they also just officially announced that there's gonna be a Vision and The Scarlet Witch television series which....no. Equally as boring, if not more boring than a family-friendly Loki. :/

Believe me, the movie is less edgy than the initial trailers led people to believe. Like, it's completely fun and definitely romcom-coded. ;)

Fun!! I can't wait to watch.
