Disney/Marvel and Netflix have confirmed that four new Marvel Series are coming to Netflix and will be filming in New York City. Gov. Cuomo and Walt Disney Co. CEO Robert Iger will hold a joint press conference today for the big announcement. So what are we thinking – Daredevil, Punisher, Black Panther and who would the fourth be? I think the first three would be almost a lock although they may be a little too similar to each other. I’d like to see a Black Widow/Hawkeye show.
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, “American Horror Story”), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill, “The Good Wife”) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, “Southland”) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
