Then when Luke Cage became a BreakoutCharacter in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', Marvel decided to swap [[Series/LukeCage2016 his show's]] spot with this one to ride off the popularity. This wound up working in the show's favor as it allowed ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' and ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' to introduce the mystical elements to the MCU before the premiere.

** Marvel had trouble finding ways to introduce mysticism into the science fiction-heavy MCU, especially considering the show would interact with the gritty and somewhat realistic Netflix shows such as ''Daredevil'' and ''Jessica Jones''. There were rumors for a while that the show was not even going to be made. There were also rumors of it being turned into a Netflix movie instead of a TV show. By the time it was released, the MCU had eased into more supernatural elements with ''Doctor Strange'' and the Ghost Rider arc on ''Agents of SHIELD''.

* TroubledProduction: The shooting schedule was so insanely tight that Finn Jones was often given his fight choreography just ''fifteen minutes'' before filming started. This certainly helps explain the many complaints about his unconvincing fighting.

* DearNegativeReader: Finn Jones has been defensive about the negative reaction towards the series, from saying that critics don't "get it" and that [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars the show isn't made for them, but for the fans]] (ignoring the same critics' positive reception of [[Series/Daredevil2015 previous]] [[Series/JessicaJones2015 Marvel]] [[Series/LukeCage2016 shows]]) to saying that the unpopularity comes from the presidency of "I have a great relationship with the blacks" "Please don't feel so stupid or insecure" Donald "My net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney" Trump and his superficial similarities to Danny. Making that last one especially weird is that it's Harold Meachum far more than Danny who's likely to remind people of "I have a great relationship with the blacks" "Please don't feel so stupid or insecure" Donald "My net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney" Trump.
