Back in 2013, we were all very excited to learn that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist were all getting their own shows set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that they were going to crossover down the line as well. And then this past April we learned that the almighty Jon Bernthal would be getting a spin-off show in The Punisher, bringing fan hype to a whole new level. However, it now appears that even this may be but scratching the surface of Marvel and Netflix’s partnership if new rumors are to be believed.
According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel has already filmed four pilot shorts based on four different characters, all for Netflix’s consideration. Word on the street is one of these characters is none other than Angela Del Toro, a Hispanic female from the Bronx and the fourth White Tiger.
This is all very exciting despite the scarce details, as this would be the first Hispanic-led show Marvel has ever produced! It’s not exactly unlikely either, as the character has already been name-dropped in the Jessica Jones episode “AKA You’re A Winner!” Perhaps they were laying the groundwork.
No word on what the other three shows are based on, but there were three other shows rumored to be in development a while back based on Ghost Rider, Blade, and Moon Knight. It remains to be seen whether Marvel makes all this happen, but in the meantime, it’s fun to speculate! Let us know who you think should portray White Tiger in the comment section below, and be sure to check back with MCU Exchange for all your latest updates!
