Female-Led WHITE TIGER Series Rumored To Be In The Works At Marvel Studios

Female-Led WHITE TIGER Series Rumored To Be In The Works At Marvel Studios Female-Led WHITE TIGER Series Rumored To Be In The Works At Marvel Studios

Though a female take on White Tiger is not expected to appear in Daredevil: Born Again, we're hearing that a spin-off series focusing on (presumably) Ava Ayala is in the works at Marvel Studios...

When we first heard that the White Tiger would be introduced in Daredevil: Born Again, it was generally assumed that it would be the Ava Ayala version of the character, with rumors doing the rounds that Jenna Ortega was up for the role.

It was later confirmed that it was actually the original White Tiger, Hector Ayala, who would appear, which led to more rumors that the Disney+ show would feature "multiple" takes on the masked vigilante.

Warning: There will be major plot spoilers for Born Again from this point on.

From the looks of a recent set video (see below), Hector isn't going to last very long in the series, which paves the way for his niece, Ava, to show up seeking revenge. Though we still don't know if Ava will show up in Born Again, insider Daniel Richtman is reporting that plans are in place for a "female-led" White Tiger Disney+ series.

Though other women have taken up the White Tiger mantle in the comics - including an actual white Bengal tigress forcefully changed into a human by the High Evolutionary - Ava Ayala seems like the most likely choice given her connection to Hector and the Man Without Fear.

The Punisher writer Dario Scardapane is believed to have come aboard as the project's new showrunner, but that's yet to be made official.

Specific plot details are still under wraps, but we know that Born Again will see Matt Murdock/Daredevil face-off against his old nemesis the Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio), who we last saw rushing back to New York in the season finale of Echo. Fisk will likely be either running for mayor of NYC or already appointed to the position when the story gets underway.

Jon Bernthal will also reprise the role of Frank Castle, aka The Punisher. We have heard that he will only factor into the final two episodes.

The show is not expected to run for the originally announced 18 episodes. A recent rumor claimed that it would likely air 9 (possibly 6) episodes before taking a mid-season break.

The upcoming Disney+ series doesn't have an official release date yet, but is still listed as being on Disney's updated 2024 schedule.

Who asked for this?

No, really.

Matchesz - 2/26/2024, 9:25 AM
@DrReedRichards - it's time for another queen
lazlodaytona - 2/26/2024, 9:26 AM
@DrReedRichards - yeah, my thought was, "like these types of series have so so well before..."
lazlodaytona - 2/26/2024, 9:27 AM
on D+ i mean

@DrReedRichards - its a rumor dude. what makes you think this fits into Igers leaner MCU? freaking out over a clickbait rumor. even if its true. so what. dont watch it. doesn't matter who asked for it. no one is forcing you to watch if it turns out to be true. odds are that its not true and she will be supporting character.
DrReedRichards - 2/26/2024, 9:38 AM
@supermanrex -

Brand dilution, my guy. This oversaturation is what made the MCU feel les special in the first place, and gave the usual suspects valid reasons to trash it. Not that they weren't itching for any excuse to do so already, but you know what I mean.

@DrReedRichards - The force is female, deal with it.
supermanrex - 2/26/2024, 9:42 AM
@DrReedRichards - but what if.... the rumor is true and white tiger brings the [frick]ing noise and and kicks ass. we will never know though cause its not happening. cause Iger literally said what you said about brand dilution and white tiger before focusing on their bigger heroes like he said is not happening. she will probably feature big as supporting character.
DrReedRichards - 2/26/2024, 9:42 AM
@harryba11zack -

Speak of the aforementioned suspects! Well, one of several, but still... Thanks for rushing in to prove my point.

DrReedRichards - 2/26/2024, 9:44 AM
@supermanrex -

I do hope you're right and this rumor ends up being nothing more than BS noise, but still, let's not forget we still have Riri and Agatha. If either of those does well enough, not amazingly just enough, I wouldn't put it past them to greenlight this one too.
harryba11zack - 2/26/2024, 9:47 AM
@DrReedRichards - your welcome, I fully support female tigers.

@DrReedRichards - Who asked for Succession? Who asked for Abbot Elementary? You just make something that you think will be good and hope people like it. You don’t wait for a letting writing campaign to make something.
DrReedRichards - 2/26/2024, 10:08 AM
@TheUnworthyThor -

Can't speak in regards to Abbott Elementary since I've not heard enough things about it, but I'd hazard a guess that Succession was requested / craved after by folks who wanted a less teenage version of Breaking Bad, meaning an excuse to idolize douches while still failing to understand the actual message of the show.

And that's coming from a guy who avoids Succession like the plague, so imagine that. I wish I was being ironic here.

@DrReedRichards - well whats to worry about then. if they are doing well then that means both riri and agatha are good shit and that means we are doing well. so if they green light using the same philosophy that got those shows to do well then....tell me where do we lose again? cause at the end of the day i think most of us just want good shit. but i feel ya they do need to dial back the series promotions for characters that only been in the mix for a minute a little which Iger is doing.

@DrReedRichards - that’s not how stuff is made dude

If they think they have a cool idea then they baje it and then it’s up to us to decide if we like it or not , it’s that simple

This weird entitlement people have now of only wanting things they asked for apparently is so strange to me , it’s like how people forgot shit gets made.

Just because there’s this vocal divisiveness in the MCU fandom now doesn’t mean it wasn’t there before , it’s just louder now due to the growing internet & more projects now

Plus who the [frick] knows if this is even true
DrReedRichards - 2/26/2024, 12:23 PM
@TheVisionary25 -

Take it from me, there's a time for everything.

I didn't ask for a Moon Knight show, but I got one and I'm grateful for it. Same thing for the Eternals movie. But that was then, at a time when the MCU could afford this sort of experimentation.

Think back and remember, I always did (and still do) justify that Phase IV was a beautiful experiment, with a wavelength of success. And this is now, when the MCU needs to earn its audience back.

They, we, whatever you will, simply cannot afford this luxury now. Not yet, at least.
TheVisionary25 - 2/26/2024, 12:30 PM
@DrReedRichards - I get what you mean but honestly at this point , someone will complain about something

People complained having to watch other shi like MS Marvel & WandaVision to “understand” the Marvel but I didn’t hear the same complaints about Echo

And then there also people who want more interconnectedness and complain about projects being too standalone so which one is it?

I just think society is too divisive now on everything which is larger issue and that also some have just plain “outgrown” the MCU which is fine

To me , it’s like the comics now that you can pick and choose which ones to follow or not

Not to say they haven’t had issues , they have which I hope are fixed but I still do think it’s quite overblown

Hopefully I’m making sense lol
DrReedRichards - 2/26/2024, 12:43 PM
@TheVisionary25 -

As much as I understand and agree with the comic books comparison, I'm also soured by it in the sense of losing the very element that made the MCU popular in the first place.

Its intereconnctedness was what made it special and innovative, especially from a financial approach with every other studio and their grandma rushing in to create a Cinematic Universe of their own.

What made the MCU popular, however, wasn't said interconnectedness, but rather its approachability. How accessible it was for casual audiences. It was then and only then, after earning the favor of casuals, that the MCU did a whole celebration of everything being more immediately interconnected in Phase III, even more so than it already was before.

TLDR: We need to earn the favour of audiences who have no interest in comics again. We need to make them care. And in my not so humble opinion, projects like this are not the way to achieve that.
TheVisionary25 - 2/26/2024, 1:06 PM
@DrReedRichards - honestly dude

I think that’s just not gonna happen now

Maybe with some projects but as a whole , I don’t see it but I could be wrong

The MCU has become huge (maybe for its own good ) that you are either on the ride or not anymore
WruceBayne - 2/26/2024, 3:17 PM
@Matchesz - you might be on to something by saying “it’s time for a new queen”. Disney might be trying to establish more female superheroes as Disney princesses. They tried to make Captain Marvel one with her last movie so I wouldn’t be surprised if Disney is trying to roll out a brand new set of Princesses.
bobevanz - 2/26/2024, 6:43 PM
@DrReedRichards - well said! And of course Visionary says the same thing like a broken record. I really Disney understands how they ended up here
DrReedRichards - 2/26/2024, 7:53 PM
@bobevanz -

I appreciate the support, but I also hear where Visionary is coming from. I'm more of a cold pragmatist, while he's more of a sincere optimist. Both are necessary.

Thanks! Still not sure that "beginning" stands, though, since I've voiced my concerns for the franchise more than often enough.

Didn't they learn their lesson from Echo?

I hope the focus on female characters nobody likes. That is a extremely good bussines strategy.
noahthegrand - 2/26/2024, 9:35 AM
Echo was better than I expected despite a few flaws and this lines up with the fallout from the Bendis Darefevil arc they are adapting that White Tiger appears in. I suppose this confirms things will go poorly for the male white Tiger
Scarilian - 2/26/2024, 9:35 AM
This is why they are killing off White Tiger in Daredevil: Born Again.
harryba11zack - 2/26/2024, 9:38 AM
cant wait to see her beat the phuck out of DD in single hand to hand combat like a real female tiger.
HashTagSwagg - 2/26/2024, 9:44 AM
Madam Webb walked so White tiger could bomb

@HashTagSwagg - ok, I sensibly chuckled 😄
