Next up before the end of the year will be Jessica Jones, followed by Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Once all four are up and going they will be pulled into another show, Defenders. As we’ve seen with Daredevil, the TV side is liable to be a lot darker than the movie side has been.

Agent Carter and Black Widow don’t have super powers and Captain Marvel wont be out till 2018.

Coming this October, Disney will launch it’s new Playmation product line merging figures with wearable tech. This new line will range across franchises starting with the Avengers and later on into Star Wars and others. For th initial Avenger the wearable looks like one of Iron Man’s repulsors, two “power activators” and two “smart figures”. In this case Captain America and the Red Skull, along with a base station. This is the Avenger starter pack, and it requires no consoles and no TV. The nutshell is you put the wearable on and J.A.R.V.I.S. provides instructions on how to get the adventure started. The base station lets you load the power activators and smart figures, basically like Disney Infinity base station, figures, and power discs do. Only instead of feeding the info into a video game, the Playmation base talks to the wearable providing “powers”, adventures, etc for the child to play inside or outside.Read More
