Marvel has dedicated to tying all their superhero options into one shared universe. Up to now they’ve executed a fairly strong job, however there are some small omissions in different properties that take the realism out of it for some followers. A type of points is the shortage of the Avengers Tower in Marvel Netflix exhibits regardless of all of them going down in New York Metropolis. Seems Marvel has a motive why they have not proven it in any respect, and Jeph Loeb was variety sufficient to elucidate why:
I believe it is way more that we take a look at it from the standpoint of “the place are we?” and having to determine that alongside the way in which. In some ways, being much less particular helps the viewers perceive that this could possibly be on any road nook. The place we’re sitting proper now, I can see the Empire State Constructing, but when we had been sitting 30 blocks that approach, I would not have the ability to see the Empire State Constructing. That does not imply it does not exist. It simply signifies that we won’t see it from the place we’re.
That is an awfully convienient response Jeph Loeb gave to Inverse, however satisfactory all the identical. New York Metropolis is a very large place, so it’s utterly believable that every one of The Defenders are working in areas which can be simply out of eyeshot from the previous central hub of The Avengers. Nonetheless, one has to think about that, out of all of the locations we have seen these Netflix heroes journey, it’d seem in a single shot, proper?
Both approach, it does not seem as if Marvel will likely be including the Avengers Tower to their Netflix exhibits anytime quickly. Tony Stark relocated The Avengers headquarters to upstate New York and bought the tower following the occasions of Captain America: Civil Warfare, and issues had been being moved out of the constructing in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Marvel may nonetheless present the constructing in a future season of Jessica Jones or one of many different hero exhibits, however would it not be as spectacular if it is just a few constructing that was once essential?
Whether or not or not followers imagine Jeph Loeb’s response that the exhibits deliberately left the tower out of pictures to assist “present this could possibly be on any road nook,” is one other concern. Contemplating exhibits with lesser budgets handle to pretend their emblem on buildings, it does not seem to be cash can be a difficulty in making it occur, so Loeb’s reasoning could also be legit. It is also that somebody simply by no means thought to incorporate it, and Marvel noticed fan complaints and have had guys like Loeb educated with this response ought to it come up in an interview.
Netflix’s next Marvel show The Punisher lastly has a release date, and followers will have the ability to leap into the world of Frank Citadel on November 17th.
