The original story runs below.
Word reaches Bleeding Cool via sources from production crew sources that Marvel has just wrapped filming four pilot shorts intended to be considered as series for Netflix, the home of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Punisher and Defenders.
I have been told that one of the pilot shorts is called White Tiger.
There have been a number of characters in Marvel’s history that have claimed the title but Bleeding Cool has been told that this is a female actor. We’re scrambling for details, but as we understand it, this would be the Angela Del Toro versions of the character, ex-FBI agent, niece of the original White Tiger, born and bred in the Bronx. If so, and if this is one of the shows that Netflix pick up, that would be Marvel’s first Hispanic superhero lead to hit the screen.
White Tiger was a legacy hero, she used mystical amulets to channel the Tiger God and give herself superhuman abilities as well as camouflage. She was corru[pted by the Hand and turned supervillain, currently a member of the New Revengers in the New Avengers comic.
Her first appearance, speculator fans is Daredevil Vol 2 #58 from 2004, by Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev. She also had a mini-series of her own.
Bendis is the guy who co-created Jessica Jones and whose comics work has influenced the Netflix Daredevil heavily as well. The character also had Luke Cage and Iron Fist as babysitters when she was a kid. Would they keep than in Netflix continuity?
