  1. While I am loving the idea of Daredevil and Ironfist Netflix shows and of a Defenders mini-series. I’m a bit disappointed that they seem to be deemed to small for films. I think we need the smaller, street based superheroes in order to maintain the awe we get at the bigger, Avengers type films. If all we have is big and epic then none of the films we be big and epic because they’re just be like everything else. Oh, and I’m saddened that I probably won’t get to see the original line-up of the Defenders (Hulk, Dr. Strange, Namor, and the Silver Surfer) on-screen any time soon. It’s especially odd since Dr. Strange is practically the head of the Defenders.
