What Misty Knight’s Bionic Arm Could Mean For Phase Two Of The Marvel Netflix Universe

If you have not watched The Defenders on Netflix then stop here! There will be SPOILERS ahead for specific things that happened during that series. Now for those who have watched you know that Misty Knight lost her arm to Bokuto’s sword during the season finale. I believe this incident will be the catalyst that will launch the Netflix series into the greater MCU. I will add up the facts of how this event can help bring a more cohesive thread between the Netflix shows and the films.

After losing her arm Misty ends up in a high-end hospital thanks to Danny Rand’s connections. She is not sure where her life will go from here, but she knows she did the right thing and blames no one else for the loss of her arm. Considering that we were told that she would be returning for season two of Luke Cage fans wondered how this would play out. Misty Knight lost her arm in the comics as well and received a vibranium replacement thanks to none other than Tony Stark. By now we should all know where vibranium comes from. We all hoped that this would be the case in the Netflix series as well. Well thanks to some recent photos released by Entertainment Weekly it looks like we have our answer.

MK Bionic Arm

Misty Knight can clearly be seen sporting a bionic arm next to Luke Cage. If they do indeed continue to follow the comics then we may be getting a mention of Tony Stark and Stark Enterprises subsidiary AccuTech. Last mentioned in promotional material for Iron Man 2, AccuTech was known for making breakthroughs in anthropo-robotics. Considering that Tony is a genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and he has relocated to New York in recent years. It would make sense for him to be involved in helping a prominent NYPD Detective regain her right arm. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s had up close and personal experience with the Winter Soldier’s bionic limb in Captain America: Civil War.

What we do not know is if Misty is still a member of the NYPD after the events of The Defenders. Her boss threatened that she could possibly lose her job because the Defenders stole a ton of C4 and blew up a building on her watch. If she is now working outside the law, like Cage, then maybe we are seeing more clues about the beginnings of the Daughters of the Dragon. In the comics, Daughters of the Dragon is a private investigation agency that Misty starts with her close friend, Colleen Wing. At this point in the Netflix series, Misty has just met Colleen, but we see them share a tender moment in the hospital. If Netflix and Marvel does develop the Daughters of the Dragon from this, then they can easily add characters to the team. Élodie Yung’s Elektra Natchios and Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple are likely candidates.

Ten Characters Likely To Show Up In Captain Marvel

Captain-Marvel-Movie-New-Logo

Considering that Marvel just had their panel at San Diego Comic Con yesterday it is time to go over who may be in their upcoming Captain Marvel film. They revealed that the film will be a prequel to the current MCU taking place in the 1990s. With that information we can deduce who will probably pop up in the film. We know that the Carol Danvers version of Captain Marvel will appear in the film, Nick Fury will appear pre eye injury, and the villains will be the Skrulls, and alien race of shapeshifters. Considering the timeline the following people would make sense.

Richard and Mary Parker

In the comics Richard and May Parker were agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. who tragically died on a mission. Considering that this film will take place in the ’90s it would be years before Peter is born, so we could explore a little about his parents. Nick Fury would be their connection to this film as they could be his “go to” agents during this time period such as Phil Coulson and Maria Hill have been in the current period.

Ben and May Parker

If Richard Parker shows up it would make sense for his older brother Ben and his wife May to make a quick cameo. This could be a small role in the film just to add some familiarity. Considering Tom Holland has showed interest in Tobey Maguire portraying the character of Uncle Ben, it would be great if they cast him. Giving a nod to fans of the original Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy.

Peggy Carter

Agent-Carter-Ant-Man

Considering she is one of the founders of S.H.I.E.L.D., it would make sense for her to appear as one of Nick Fury’s superiors. She has made a cameo during the beginning of Ant-Man which took place in 1989, meaning she could still be active within the organization during the ’90s.

James “Rhodey” Rhodes

This would be a great addition to the film even if it’s only in a small role. Colonel James Rhodes is a military officer and pilot in the United States Air Force. Carol Danvers was also a member of the United States Air Force, so it would make sense if they knew each other during their youth. Maybe it was her disappearance that made him so dead set on finding Tony during the events of the first Iron Man, as he couldn’t lose another friend.

Hank Pym

Having quit S.H.I.E.L.D. in 1989 it would be cool if Nick Fury had to contact Hank Pym to get some information from him during the film. Possibly calling in a favor that needs someone who can shrink. This could allow us to see more of him in the  suit and his interaction with other S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel aside from Howard Stark and Peggy Carter.

Alexander Pierce

Robert-Redford

Alexander Pierce and Nick Fury were once good friends. Maybe, this film could show fans the infamous Bogata mission that convinced Pierce to promote Fury to head of S.H.I.E.L.D. Also it would be great if we see him manipulating and recruiting other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to join Hydra. Perhaps he tries to convert Richard and Mary Parker only for them to reject him. Leading him to have the Winter Soldier murder them sometime in the early 2000s. That would give Peter and Tony even more in common.

Reed Richards

Now we’re delving into more wishful territory. With the realization that the Skrulls are going to be the main villains of the film it would be great to get a clip of a young Reed Richards to let fans know that Marvel and Fox have reached a deal. I’m pretty sure the Skrulls belong to Fox and those characters are major villains for the Fantastic Four. It just seems like the possibility is there.

Victor Von Doom

This is even more wishful thinking as I doubt it would happen. Reed and Victor used to be friends during their college days. It would be nice if they were shown as fellow students at M.I.T. with a young Tony Stark. Or at least we could get a mention of Latveria in the MCU.
