Although cancelled, Iron Fist‘s most recent season is still available, and it’s a definite improvement on season one. I would not allow myself to start the next season of Daredevil until I finished this. Now that I have, you can expect a review of the third season of Daredevil in the next few weeks.

Variety has more details, but the short version is that the film rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and their related characters now go to Disney (who owns Marvel comics). The price tag? Just $71.3 Billion. No big deal.
Let the wild speculation begin! Doctor Doom as the next “Big Bad?” Magneto? Galactus?
Personally, I’m just holding out for a Firefly/Serenity ride at Disneyland (“Oh God, oh God, We’re All Gonna Die: The Ride”). Fingers crossed.

Marvel’s latest Netflix series went live on November 17, headlining the Marvel hero I dislike the most. There is no character that has ever had his or her own ongoing title by Marvel that I am less interested in reading about than The Punisher, and that’s including characters like US 1, the trucker who picks up CB radio signals through a metal plate in his skull. Is the series worth checking out?

I was fortunate enough to have a chance to sneak out to catch Thor: Ragnarok last night. I am going to have to agree with the others and endorse the Norse.

- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ($451 million)

- The Secret Life of Pets ($368 million)
