Marvel’s Daredevil series which rocked Netflix left fans speechless and wanting more and more. Next up will be Netflix’ Right now AKA Jessica Jones is currently in production with Luke Cage and Iron Fist currently right behind it.

According to Heroic Hollywood we have some details on what could be Phase II of Marvel’s Netflix series. According to this report, the studio wants to bring in darker characters like Punisher, Blade, and Ghost Rider. Also known as the Marvel Knights series. The site explains:

Not only are they darker and more violent, but two of them require supernatural elements in order to tell their stories. The inclusion of these characters could send Netflix over to the goofy side, which is something they’re very afraid of Ghost Rider would also rely on CGI too much for the studio’s taste.

It would also be difficult to incorporate the stories of these characters smoothly. Blade and Punisher are perceived to be rather one-note to carry a series on their own. The heavy level of violence is also perceived to be a risk. They want a “hard PG-13,” instead of an R. And since none of the Defenders actively kill, throwing Punisher into the mix could be a challenge.

Apparently the studio wants to bring in the film actors to make cameos in some of these series with rumors as far and wide as Doctor Strange appearing in Iron Fist.
