Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 3 / Agent Carter Season 2 to blu?

Daredevil S1/S2/ Jessica Jones S1 to blu?


thought that i would take the opportunity to consolidate all of these under one roof, and not trying to start one of these comic book flame wars, but this is the part where WB is doing a little better, at announcing their plans for releases. Think you can pretty much preorder the entire current DCTV titles in both DVD and Blu for more that one specific place.

Assumptions would have me believe that the two ABC programs should be released about the same time as CA:CW, as the last ones rode in on the coattails of TWS; the question remains will they get a blu release and is it going to be another Amazon Exclusive? would be nice to know a little in advance, preorder would be nice. i am waiting for that announcement if nothing else to finally see the program instead of George Stephanopoulos interrupting every damn episode with primary results, ah the beauty of broadcast TV.


The Netflix programs are an entity of their own, this is almost a no-brainer, but the fact that it is Netflix exclusive does slow down some of that fever for a release, but at the point that is available for purchase as a HD download from iTunes that first season exclusivity goes right out the window at that point. So time for Marvel/ Netflix/ Buena Vista Home Entertainment to announce at least the first season of DD. Don't wait around and try to push a complete Defenders. need to get this out so that you can build on it. No matter how hard some of the media companies will try there are many that would prefer to own an actual physical copy instead of a download.

I too have wondered why the hell we don't have any DAREDEVIL on disc yet?

The terms of the exclusive deal no doubt have them locked into streaming only for a while. I suspect that won't change for a while. If they didn't put out a Daredevil Season 1 disc before premiering Season 2, then there's no rush or the exclusivity period is much longer than it normally would be.

maybe physical media is having a problem, over 175 looks and only 6 people are interested in any of these titles getting a blu ray release, yes it is a very opened question. not specific to any one of the series.

I'm sure that alot of Marvel fans would buy them (though a number of those people are living in a 'digital' world) but it's more an issue of when Netflix's exclusive rights end and not if they'll release them. Once Netlix's exclusivity ends, they'll come out on disc.

I don't understand the hold-up at all, nor do I understand Disney's reluctance to even give out information. If anything, putting Daredevil Season 1 on blu-ray/DVD would give more fans the chance to see it and would likely increase Netflix subscriptions, as people want to see season 2, the other Marvel shows, etc. Jessica Jones - which won a Peabody! - should find it's way to disc before season 2 as well. Hurry up, guys!

Agents of Shield and Agent Carter showed up on blu last fall, but as Amazon exclusives and with hardly any bonus material at all -- that's not a vote of confidence in the format from Disney, which is very odd, seeing how Disney is a home video champion, with sales of their animated movies, Marvel movies and, now, Star Wars movies dominating. I hope both ABC shows show up on blu again this fall and more widely available.

The more they fall behind in terms of releasing these shows on disc, the more likely it is they never will.

That's why I recently ordered the UK region-free versions from Zavvi in their "Marvel Multi-Buy" promotion instead of waiting for a wide US release. Cost me a lot less money than the Amazon exclusives, too.

Their promotion is still going on for those who want to give it a go. £16.65 (roughly $24.00) for Season One blu-rays of both shows (so, $12.00 each) is pretty darn good, I'd say!

Anyone have an address or a contact at Marvel/Disney home video to whom we could write? I've searched for one and came up with nothing.

To further illustrate the differences between Marvel-Disney (and I say "Marvel-Disney" because I don't have any idea who's in charge) and Warner: Warner has officially announced Gotham season 2 and Legends season 1, released artwork for Flash season 2 and Supergirl season 1, and I'm sure Arrow is close behind. (All were listed by Amazon six months ago.) Meanwhile, there are crickets surrounding news of the Marvel shows. Someone's heart is in this, and someone's isn't.

Edited to reflect that Legends season 1 was announced today.

Marvel operates as its own unit within Disney, so they have the ability to pick and choose their own home video releases and patterns. For instance, the parent company Disney has stopped supporting 3D on domestic releases; Marvel continues to support 3D. Don't they usually like to tie in their TV Blu-ray announcements around the time of the movies? I'd expect that when Civil War is officially announced, S3 of Shield will be announced too.

Regarding the Netflix series, Netflix almost certainly made a deal keeping them exclusive to Netflix for a longer period of time. Since the original announcement includes the mentions of multiple series leading up to a team-up event, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get anything on the home video front until after that team-up event series happens. I'm sure Netflix paid a premium to keep it as an exclusive, and it makes sense for their business to have it be truly exclusive. Whatever they were offering was probably more than Disney/Marvel anticipates making on Blu-ray sales.

This may be changing with Zootopia releasing on 3D in a little over a week.
I'd hope so, but yet, they've declined to announce a domestic 3D release for "The Jungle Book" which was released after "Zootopia," and of course, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is still MIA in 3D, so as much as I'm hoping, I'm not ready to start holding my breath either.

I saw that SHIELD season 3 will be on Netflix in June, about a month after the season finale. I wonder if that changes the need for a certain release window.

I do have season 1 on blu-ray, but have taken my time getting season 2, because it is on Netflix. While I do like having physical media, I also like having the most possible money in my wallet. So, why rush out and spend a lot when I'm probably not going to get around to watching the series again for a while when I can probably find it for cheap later, and in the meantime stream it if I do want to watch an ep?

However, I might be a little quicker to get Agent Carter season 2, since I haven't gotten around to watching that on my DVR yet, and I know I missed the end of one of the episodes because ABC delayed all of their shows one night without any warning.

I do hope that Daredevil and Jessica Jones are given Blu-ray releases in the near future--I enjoyed DD S1 (I haven't gotten around to S2) and I found JJ to be refreshingly adult compared to other comic-book properties (CW's DC shows are fun, bad acting and dreadful dialogue and all, but they're limited by network standards). I'm sure Disney wants to milk the home video sales once the supposed statute for Netflix streaming expires.

Press releases for all 5 Warner shows have been released and each has a release date. Still nothing from the Marvel camp.

I think last year that Agents Of SHIELD and Agent Carter seasons weren't announced until the summer Marvel movie home video announcement, so I wouldn't necessarily be surprised to see this piggybacked onto the Captain America: Civil War official announcement.

The most recent season of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." went direct to Netflix. I wouldn't be surprised if Marvel Television's deal with Netflix precludes DVD/Blu-Ray releases in the future, especially since Disney's support for Marvel TV on DVD/Blu-Ray has always been lukewarm at best in the past.

Daredevil Season 1 is happening.

http://thedigitalbits.com/columns/my-two-cents/070116_1145

UK release on Oct 3; US TBA but happening. Announcement at or before ComicCon. Pretty nice steelbook edition shown in The Bits' link above.

BTW, I checked and last year Agents of Shield and Agent Carter were announced on July 8, prior to ComicCon.

I'm speculating that the Netflix exclusivity window is 18 months (April 2015-Oct 2016).
