When Marvel first announced their TV show line-up with Netflix, it was stated that the studio and streaming service would debut all four shows in 2015, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. While Marvel's Daredevil is already streaming its first season with a second season to debut next April, and Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones is currently in production and set to debut towards the end of this year, Marvel's Luke Cage, which has Mike Colter as the title character, won't hit until 2016. The only project that we haven't heard anything about yet is Marvel's Iron Fist, but that may change soon, as it will also likely arrive next year. Actor Ryan Phillippe appeared on Howard Stern's radio show this morning, where he revealed that he is in talks with Marvel for one of their Netflix TV shows. And it's quite possible that he is wanted for the lead in Marvel's Iron Fist.
Of course, it's also completely possible that Ryan Phillippe is in talks for a supporting role in Marvel's Luke Cage, or for a new role in Marvel's Daredevil Season 2, such as the iconic villain Bullseye. Still, Marvel's Iron Fist is the only show that hasn't cast its title character, so it would make sense that the studio is casting for this project before they start working on Marvel's Daredevil Season 2. There have also been recent rumors of The Punisher being developed as a Netflix TV show, but nothing has been confirmed by the studio or the streaming service on that topic yet. Ryan Phillippe's admission doesn't give us much to go on, so, for now, it's anybody's guess, but hopefully we'll hear something official very soon.
It isn't known when Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist will start production, or when Netflix plans on debuting each show on the streaming service. Marvel and Netflix are also developing The Defenders, a miniseries that brings together the main characters from Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist. Ryan Phillippe currently stars on ABC's new drama series Secrets & Lies, which hasn't been renewed or cancelled at this time.
