SPECULATION: Is Netflix/Marvel planning Spider-Woman, Moon Knight, Punisher and Deathlok series?

Before we go any further, we really can’t see there being much to this story, if anything at all… 


It’s always fun to speculate, right? It lies at the centre of being a fan of, well, anything.

So, here goes…

Website PeelTheOrange are claiming they have a source close to the Marvel/Netflix TV offices and they are reporting that plans are afoot to keep the TV universe dark, with the 2018/2019 lineup looking something lie this?

2018: Moon Knight with Bushman as the main villain
2018: The Punisher with JIGSAW as the main villain
2019: Deathlok with Fixer as the main villain
2019: Spider-Woman with Madame HYDRA as the main villain

They, rightfully, draw conclusions that this WOULD make sense for several reasons. Firstly, we know Wesley Snipes has been talking up the return of Blade to the MCU (here) and this could lead to Moon Knight appearing on TV. We already know Punisher will feature in Daredevil Season 2 and the talk of a standalone series is already happening. Deathlok already exists in the MCU through Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD (although, we have to admit, we don’t know if we want to see a full series of him in that incarnation) and, with Sony and Marvel introducing Spider-man in Civil War, Spider-Woman would make sense. Sort of.

So, that’s the rumours… now, blow the doors off and tell us what you think.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
