Marvel Gets Punisher, Jessica Jones Rights Back from Netflix (News )

IGN·2021-02-19 18:00

Marvel has regained the live-action rights to Jessica Jones and The Punisher from Netflix. This means all the Marvel characters Netflix previously held the live-action rights to, including Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, have reverted to Marvel.As reported by ComicBook.com, the multi-year deal between Marvel and Netflix has officially come to a close now that the last remaining Marvel heroes Netflix held the rights to are back with Marvel. The latter of which has recently spun up its own TV originals on Disney+ with shows like WandaVision and Falcon and The Winter Soldier.Jessica Jones, which starred Krysten Ritter as the titular hero, was a noir detective story centered around Jones' hard-knock character solving street-level mysteries in New York City. The Punisher, starring Jon Bernthal, was a spinoff of Daredevil featuring the gun-toting vigilante.In 2013, Marvel and Netflix announced a deal that would create a mini Marvel universe on Netflix based on The Defenders. This included original shows starring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Later a Punisher spinoff was also created and released on Netflix as well as a team-up series for The Defenders.This deal effectively ended in 2019 when Netflix announced it will be canceling the remainder of its Marvel shows, possibly in light of the news that Marvel was pursuing its own original television programming on the then newly-announced Disney+ streaming service.Netflix kept the rights to the Marvel characters for a two-year period after the cancellation of a show, which meant characters like Daredevil reverted to Marvel in late 2020 and Jessica Jones and Punisher are now finally changing hands back to Marvel.What Marvel will do with these characters now that it has the live-action rights to these characters remains to be seen. For example, reports have suggested Daredevil star Charlie Cox has been spotted on the set for the upcoming Spider-Man 3 starring Tom Holland.Spider-Man 3 is shaping up to be a bonanza of multiverse shenanigans with The Amazing Spider-Mans Electro (played by Jamie Foxx) set to return, and rumors of a possible return from other non-MCU Spider-Man actors like Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Alfred Molina, who played Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2.And if youre watching WandaVision youll know that show is also taking some bold risks with characters. So whos to say what the future has in store for Jessica Jones and Punisher.For more, check out IGNs WandaVision Episode Release Schedule, and every WandaVision Easter Egg weve spotted so far.Matt T.M.
