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 wonder what the whole story is with these cancellations. Did Disney/Marvel hike up the price to use their property? Everyone is being very civil in their statements. The article talks about how when Netflix initially signed this deal 5 years ago, this was all they had for original content and also that Disney/Marvel still own the series. Now Netflix has figured out ways to create original content that is 100% theirs, filming in NYC is expensive and Disney/Marvel want their properties back, based on statements about how there will be a 4th season...my guess on Disney+. I'm not as emotionally involved in any of these series so I am kind of curious about the business side of these decisions. As long as they don't cancel 'Queer Eye' LOL.

That Venom trailer is BRILLIANT! I am on the wait list for the dvd at the library because of you :P

I didn't even make it through three episodes of 'Runaways'. I loved the original comic too much, the show just bothered me. Casting was spot on, writing not so much, at least for me. What what Marvel and Hulu's relationship is like...that contract was signed after the Disney buyout...or was it?

I feel like they have to be civil in their statements, as part of professional courtesy.

I'm not going to pretend I know what's going on, because I don't think anyone truly knows. I had originally thought that whatever was happening with the Disney streaming service, now that they own Marvel, it wasn't going to affect the already existing Marvel series on such platforms like Netflix. But I guess that didn't really matter in the end.

I don't think the fourth season will be on the new Disney streaming service. They strictly want to keep that service PG13/"family friendly" and Daredevil just isn't that. If it is, it won't be with the same people/actors, it'll be totally recreated which I personally don't want, nor do I want a watered down version of what we already had. I have no idea what that line from the statement meant, but I don't think it's going to be what people think it is re: finding the show a new home.

I'm also curious about the business side of things, because it seems everyone got sidelined by this news, including the cast and crew who thought that they were already in the go for a fourth season, especially since the third season had such positive reviews/feedback and fans have been saying it was the best season of the show yet. I feel so bad for them. :(

That Venom trailer is BRILLIANT! I am on the wait list for the dvd at the library because of you :P

Oh, yay! :D

I never read the Runaways comics, so I don't have anything to compare it to. Regardless, I really enjoyed the show a lot. I do agree with others that it was a bit slow going at first, but I still enjoyed it for what it was and it looks like the second season is going to be more into the action/exciting aspects. I also like that apparently Hulu is dropping the entire season on a single day a la Netflix-style, so hopefully it works out better that way for the viewing experience. My favorite character is Nico, because that is goth goals right there. ;)

As for the Hulu/Marvel/Disney situation, I have no idea. I had thought that Disney owned Hulu previously so therefore the buyout of Marvel property means that Runaways is safe, as is Cloak and Dagger which is on Freeform (previously ABC Family which Disney owns, as well).
