Will Marvel TV Shows Thrive Away from Netflix?

Will Marvel TV Shows Thrive Away from Netflix?

With their own streaming service launch on the horizon, Disney has announced they will no longer develop new Marvel series for Netflix. On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we discussed if that will be a good thing for the future of MCU TV shows, along with a whole litany of pop culture goodies, and what microtransactions mean for Red Dead Redemption 2.

Once again SourceFed’s Steve Zaragoza filled in as guest host, and he was joined by Nerdist editors Dan Casey and Kyle Hill, along with Geek & Sundry‘s Amy Vorpahl. They began with reports that Disney will not develop any new Marvel shows for Netflix, although the current lineup will continue. Does this make sense for the Mouse? Will being on their own streaming service give them more freedom or less? And which current Marvel Netflix shows do we enjoy?

From there they went through a smorgasbord of great pop culture odds and ends that have us excited, including their thoughts on super adorable baby porgs, that family Deadpool 2 Thanksgiving poster, and Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who wardrobe.

Finally, Red Dead Redemption 2 will have lots of microtransactions, even more than GTV 5, and those reportedly brought in a whopping half-a-billion dollars for Rockstar. Are we okay with this so long as it brings new content to the game, or would we prefer a different payment method like a regular subscription? Are we more excited for the single or multi-player mode? And are we building the game up so much it’s bound to disappoint?

Remember you can join in on the conversation with us every weekday at 1:00 p.m. PT when Nerdist News Talks Back airs live on our YouTube and Alpha channels. It doesn’t matter where they air them, we’ll always be talking about Marvel shows. Yes, even Iron Fist.

But we still want to hear your thoughts on all of today’s many topics, so talk back to us in the comments below.
