Not sure that it will all disappear, actually. They've mentioned that there's supposed to be some way to fold it all in without losing stuff posted later. We'll have to see how that works out once they're done with the DB rebuild.
Lets stay polite. Implying someone dislikes aspects of a show for unsavory reasons is pretty lame. On a related note, I too decided to rewatch Daredevil a bit, and I forgot just how stylish the direction and lighting were; it wasn't just fight choreography that made it distinct. JJ is very drab by comparison. Only four episodes into the rewatch, and it's after episode five where I think the switch to DeKnight really starts to have a negative impact, but the first four are very strong episodes. And the supporting cast is nothing to sneeze at.
I don't fully understand this thread, but one point: Every single depiction of a crown in our heraldry? George said there was a crown, and that's it -- he didn't specify points. We used clipart and such to make said crowns, and I guess most depictions of crowns we had access to had five points for whatever reason. The seven-pointed crown mentioned depicted in WoIaF? Also not with George's input, just the artist's take on it. George doesn't care about the points. A crown's a crown.
Kilgrave not raping Jessica in the comic comes from very comic-specific backstory: namely that after decades of getting his butt kicked by every superhero under the sun, his getting a hold of a "pet superhero" leads him to carry out a program of particular cruelty; making her watch, making her beg for it but then not doing it, making her hop up and down and basically everything else was to assuage his own feelings of victimization. But on the show, and in the MCU, Kilgrave doesn't have the backstory of a D-list villain who serves as a punching bag for a couple dozen heroes. He has no motive to be especially cruel to Jessica when he initially captures her -- she's an extremely special plaything, that's it, no baggage about superheroes beating him up and defeating his plans. There's a revenge component to how he treated Jessica that simply isn't at issue on the show, so it is merely logical and true to the personality of the character that he'd rape her.
The show's Kingpin doesn't remind me of any particular comic interpretation, and that's fine with me. The "man-child" approach is, so far as I am aware, unique to the DD series. Certainly doesn't strike me as very similar to Bendis's portrayal, and I loved the hell out of Bendis's Daredevil run. They may have borrowed elements of his origins from Bendis's take, I suppose, but it was pretty wildly reconfigured.
Brilliant episode. The ballroom direction and cinematography was absolutely to die for. Cornelia's discovery that her family is behind the plague-infested immigrants making it to New York, and at the same time the fact that they're on the verge of financial ruin if she makes any missteps with that information or with creepy Daddy Showalter, is so well done. Lucy's ruthlessness in pursuing her ambitions is pretty breathtaking. Love this show.
The showrunner indicated in an interview that she initially was going to get into Luke's origins a bit but then had feedback that that was something that should be left for his show. So yeah, the Reva stuff seems like it's going to be handled there. Also, looking forward to the Luke Cage show having someone tell him, "Fight the power, man!"
Sokovia and what happened there in Avengers 2 is the catalyst for the plan to register and control superpowered individuals. I assume Bucky refuses to go along with it and this forces Cap to defend his friend. That's not the comic book storyline but it certainly makes character sense. Did like the glimpse of Black Panther being chased by Captain America, because it certainly seemed that he was outrunning Cap.
