Marvel Was Going To Make A Daughters of The Dragon Netflix Show
Before WandaVision saw the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) expanded into television series, Marvel had created its own television universe starring characters that were largely kept separate from the MCU’s heavy hitters.
Beginning with 2015’s Daredevil, Marvel Television (a separate production team from Marvel Studios) began to introduce a new collection of heroes through several interconnected series on Netflix. Although perhaps not as popular as the Avengers, the Marvel Netflix series gained a strong following for their “street-level” stories and grittier characters.
Following Daredevil, Marvel Television produced Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, before bringing the characters together for The Defenders. One more spin-off, The Punisher, would be released before Netflix and Marvel ended their relationship.
The launch of Disney+ in 2019 would ultimately spell the end for Marvel’s Netflix heroes. With Marvel Studios now producing their own television shows, the days of Marvel Television were numbered.
As it turns out, however, prior to being “blindsided” by the end of the Marvel-Netflix relationship, Marvel Television had more ideas for potential series.
Marel Television Was Setting Up ‘Daughters of the Dragon’
Perhaps the one closest to coming together was a potential Daughters of the Dragon spinoff.
Colleen Wing and Misty Knight were introduced in Iron Fist’s second season and seemed well on their way to a team-up show. Known as the Daughters of the Dragon in the Marvel comics, the duo proved they could work well together in both Iron Fist and Luke Cage, and fans were soon clamoring for a spin-off.
According to Marc Jobst, who directed several episodes of the Marvel-Netflix series, a Daughters of the Dragoon offshoot was certainly on the table.
“Yes, absolutely. There was some relationship-building in the episode, starting with the boxing ring training. That culminated in Colleen deliberately leading Misty into a fight to get over her self-pity. Knowing that Misty would rise to it, which she did. The two of them going off into the smoke and bokeh as a definite twosome was a nod to the potential of Daughters of the Dragon.”
Could We See The Marvel Television Characters Return?
While fans never got to see Wing and Knight get their proper team-up, perhaps there is still hope. Recently, former Marvel television characters including Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin have been introduced into the mainstream MCU.
In the always-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, perhaps we will finally see the Daughters of the Dragon too.
