    I'm holding out because I like the darker tone of the Netflix series because they add a nice contrast to the more lighthearted, less thoughtout film series of Marvel.

You know, I have to be a bit honest here. This show kind of feels like the late '80s to mid '90s of comics, where it was all about blood, guns, and gnashed teeth. Dark and moody has its moments, but if everything becomes too gritty it loses a lot of its impact. From the trailer, I feel like this show has tipped a bit too far, hence my hesitance.
