Marvel’s television department is absolutely killing it on NetFlix.
Now three seasons into their run, things have thus far continued to get progressively better. Starting last spring with Daredevil, they set a different tone from the other Marvel properties, and delivered some serious fan-service. Great casting, brutal action sequences, addictively binge-worthy. November saw follow-up Jessica Jones successfully expand the television universe. Now, just this past weekend we were delivered the third installment – Daredevil season 2. The reactions have been overwhelmingly positive, especially in reference to Frank Castle.

Daredevil‘s gotten rave reviews. Same with Jessica Jones. The upcoming Luke Cage series looks to flex as yet another win for Netflix even though it’s still months away. So why’s Iron Fist having a hard time getting out of the dojo?
Rumors of cancellation have been swirling for months by fans who hadn’t heard a whiff of incense from Netflix and Marvel about the series. There was even talk that a Punisher series would replace it. Finally, Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, addressed the issue:

Good friends are important, and best buds even more so. Someone who has your back, and who will be there when the chips are down. And of course, a heavily super powered friend that shares your own values, motivations, and love for extremely tight uniforms has to be pretty much the best thing ever.
There have been a lot of great pairings over the years in the comic book world, from best friends to friendly rivals. With more than a few friends taking each other on in the theaters next year with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War, it’s important to take stock of these friendships that have developed on-screen and in the comics for years. Sure, they’re fighting now, but chances are after the battle they’ll all go and grab a few beers and bro out over the battle.
There are quite a few more great friendships among the superhero community, buddies that have been through the thick and the thin, fought each other more times than they could count, and have even survived the ‘finality’ of death (at least until the inevitable rebirth). Let’s take a look at some Superhero Best Buds that have survived the test of time.

There has been a lot of news regarding Marvel and Netflix’s particular corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the last couple of years. The initial announcement dropped with the big news that the long in development Daredevil adaptation, whose rights had recently reverted back to Marvel, would be airing exclusively as a Netflix Original Series. Of course that wasn’t the only announcement made at the time, as we learned that Daredevil would be joined by a few other street level heroes. These heroes would each be getting their own series before starring together in a mini-series event known as The Defenders. We have already seen the first season of Daredevil, and are all just about to sit and binge Jessica Jones, which hits Netflix in its entirety tonight!

With the success of Marvel properties being turned into movies (such as Iron Man, Captain America and The Avengers) fans have been hungry for more. When ABC dropped the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it opened up new doors when the show became a modest hit. Seeing the increasing popularity of these Marvel-tinged movies and shows, Netflix has ordered four Marvel shows to premiere on their streaming service.
