I don't know about you, but I am happy that we are getting a actor from the Netflix universe into a mainline movie. I personally would like to render all of the Netflix shows uncannon. Yes, this means that we loose Daredevil, but this doesn't mean we can't bring in the same creative team to remake it as a movie or a Disney+ show.
Anyway, I never saw the original movies. I think I'll watch them at some point, but till then I am joining this new franchise completely blindly. Also this BETTER has Romania in it!
