According to the normal rules of TV, when you’ve got something good you keep cranking it out until no one wants any part of it anymore. Netflix isn’t following any established method though, they’re taking a different approach: always leave them wanting more. Such is the case for their slate of Marvel Studios programming. One would think that with the tremendous, flattering success of Jessica Jones, and the warm reception for Daredevil season two, that Netflix would want to get new seasons of those shows rolling post haste. But no, we won’t see those shows again for a while. About two years to be precise. (more…)
It’s already been reported how much news came out of the Marvel Television panel at San Diego Comic Con (and it’s only day one). This piece is something that many already knew was coming, but now it’s been confirmed. A third season for Daredevil is definitely happening. However, with other shows like Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders also in the works, the big question is when will the third season of Daredevil premiere on Netflix? Only time will tell.
Netflix‘s second season of Daredevil was fantastic in so many ways. Jon Bernthal knocked it so far out of the park when it came to Frank Castle and the Punisher that Marvel and Netflix decided to spinoff the character into his own Netflix Punisher series. Bernthal recently talked about the character and what we might expect to see in the series and had some interesting and poignant things to say about Frank Castle and the Punisher. (more…)
There’s a new rumor floating around the Internet about Marvel and Netflix‘s upcoming Defenders movie. That’s the movie that will bring together the heroes of each Netflix series, Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) to fight some evil in New York. This is another of those take with a big grain of salt Internet rumors so buckle up and let’s consider it. Word is that the Defenders will take on Mephisto in the movie, or at least he’ll be the big baddie behind everything that is going wrong with the city. (more…)
Charlie Cox has been fantastic in Marvel and Netflix‘s Daredevil series, both as the beat-down dishing hero in red Daredevil and his day time blind lawyer Matt Murdock. If you watch carefully, you can see that while we all know that Daredevil knows exactly where everyone in the room is due to his heightened senses, Matt Murdock doesn’t make eye contact with those he is talking to because, hey… he’s blind and isn’t supposed to know exactly where their eyes are, just the general area. It’s all part of protecting his secret identity. Problem is, sometimes that ingrained habit can backfire when Charlie Cox the actor goes out for other roles. (more…)
There’s an interesting rumor starting to make the Internet rounds that Marvel‘s CCO (Chief Creative Officer) Joe Quesada had a hidden cameo in Netflix‘s Daredevil Season 2 finale, an Easter Egg if you will. Rich Johnston over at BleedingCool is reporting that sources have revealed that Quesada was one of The Hand Ninjas on the roof. Can you pick him out? (more…)
While it does little to heal the wounds such conflicts can inflict (we shall all carry the scars of AvP for a long long time,) the March 2016 offering from Loot Crate is a solid one, filled with the usual metric tonne (sorry, there is the Canadian-ness coming out again) of exclusives we’ve grown to expect and love from the world’s leading subscription box service. Check out our video review below (more…)
One week ago today, Marvel and Netflix unleashed Daredevil season two. The praise has been very high, as it was for the first season, with laurels for the performances from original cast members Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson, as well as newcomers Jon Bernthal and Élodie Yung as key Marvel Universe figures the Punisher and Elektra, respectively. Perhaps you’ve enjoyed the series through to completion, perhaps you’re only part of the way, but in any case you’ve probably had one eye open on all the various Easter eggs and references to the comics, to other properties, and all the other corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. How far did you get? (more…)
Last year, Daredevil smashed into the hearts of fans with bone-cracking intensity. This pitch perfect, character driven action fest put to rest any lingering phantom pains from the 2003 Ben Affleck vehicle. This year, Daredevil is back with a second season, looking to outdo the first in every way. And it succeeds on most counts. The acting seems a little more solid from all three returning main characters, the action scenes are more brutal and explosive than in the first season, and there just seem to be more great individual moments in season 2 overall, especially considering the brilliant additions of Elektra and the Punisher, played by Elodie Yung and Jon Bernthal, respectively. This article is written in celebration of those moments and the return of the Man Without Fear. So turn off your police scanners, pour yourself a martini with a nasty grey olive, and pull up a chair to count down the 10 best scenes in Daredevil season 2! Fair warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!
If you’ve been on social media over the weekend, you’ll have seen all the typical social BS: people posting 1001 photos of their kids, that over zealous family member sharing another “Thank Jebus” meme, Bernie Sanders supporters, Trump haters, Buzzfeed recipe sharers, selifies, gym rats, and so on. In between all that, you may of seen a steady stream of posts from those nerdy people in your life saying “Wow, #Daredevil is awesome”. There’s a reason for that, second season of the hit Marvel show Daredevil premiered on Netflix on Fri 3/18. Binge watchers have feasted on episodes, with some already finishing the entire 13 episode series, having been blown away at just how good a super hero series can be.
If you’ve yet to be introduced to this Marvel/Netflix show about a blind lawyer by day and punchy vigilante at night, then let the following clip be a selling point. (more…)
