  1. Marvel gets more and more curious about how it handles it’s different franchise universes, it would seem that the Marvel Netflix universe is linked by reference only to the movie universe of Thor and Captain America, which in turn has a much stronger plot link with Joss whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. a show that on the small screen usually keeps itself at an arms length from the high rollers seen in the Avengers franchise. This reminds me, where is Stan Lees ‘Lucky Man’ which has been broadcast on Sky and s having a second season.
