Marvel's TV show called Echo builds on violent content

Inverse is sugarcoating news of a new TV streaming show from Marvel titled Echo, which builds on grisly ingredients, and reeks of "realistic" propaganda:
Echo doesn’t look like your usual Marvel streaming show, and that’s no accident. In all its marketing, the studio makes one thing clear: Echo is different. It’s serious, for one thing, with a TV-MA rating and a brutal, grounded tone. It’s also not just another cog in the machinery of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, instead launching a subdivision of the MCU titled “Spotlight” for stories that make sense on their own even if you’re not caught up on the franchise.

[...] “We weren't dealing with the fate of the universe,” Freeland says. “We got to tell a more intimate human story. But hopefully, in doing so, it actually raises the stakes. In our show, people die, people bleed, people get killed, bones get broken.”

As for Echo’s unexpected rating, making the show so violent wasn’t a deliberate choice, just a natural progression of the show’s evolution.

“We didn't set out to make a TV-MA show as a rule or a goal, but we didn't want to hold back on any of that violence,” Palmer says. “We wanted to make sure that she was the badass that she was in the comics. We didn't want to pull our punches.”
Sorry, I'm not buying that defense of "natural progression". Besides, something tells me that at this point, they wouldn't adapt the Punisher no matter how much it could fit the categories listed. Whenever I read these kind of articles, I never notice them emphasizing surrealism, and whether it makes for a valid, palatable market. So what're they getting at anyway? There's only so many TV and movie productions being promoted along the same lines used here, that as a result, what's emphasized in this Marvel production only rates as unoriginal.

It's hardly surprising at this point a movie or TV show coming from the now woke-affected Marvel studios could go for such an emphasis as brutally violent content. And if that's how it's going to be, it's another reason to change the channel, just like their comics must be avoided now.
