Netflix recently released a trailer for the second season of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones.”

In other minor news, Marvel’s anti-hero show “The Punisher” has just been picked up for a second season on Netflix.

The fate of Marvel’s shows on Netflix remain uncertain. It’s unlikely Netflix would let them move to the new Disney streaming service. However, I think you can make a good argument for Disney to continue to fund their production on Netflix in order to keep the base of fans who like the darker look at the world of Marvel involved in the brand.
