“Quack! Quack! Quack!” Not traditionally how the start of a panel at Fan Expo Canada goes, but when you’re Elden Henson it’s to be expected. He’s put a lot of miles and a lot roles on his career in the almost 25 years since The Mighty Ducks, but he hasn’t been able to escape his legacy as the Duck’s enforcer Fulton Reed. “To this day I get Mighty Ducks, even doing the signings here most people want the Mighty Ducks picture signed,” Henson opined. But this was a day for Daredevil, and Henson was joined by co-star Charlie Cox, and Marvel Entertainment creative head Joe Quesada to talk about the popular Netflix series. (more…)

Joe Quesada is name that may not be familiar to many of the people that enjoy Marvel movies and TV shows, but it would be hard to say if there would even be a Marvel today, as we know it, without Quesada’s timely intervention. Starting with a small line of four books no one really cared about, Quesada soon found himself the head of the Marvel Comics at the turn of the century, and a prime force in taking the company from the brink of bankruptcy to being a multimedia empire standing up in its own right amongst the expansive Disney kingdom. He talked about this journey Friday at Fan Expo Canada(more…)

Back in the 90s, and the mad scramble to monetize their properties and make some cash as they were on the brink of bankruptcy, Marvel Comics sold the rights to its characters to a number of different studios. The X-Men went to 20th Century Fox (as did the Fantastic Four and Daredevil), Blade went to New Line Cinema, Hulk to Universal, and Ghost Rider to Sony (where he was joined – eventually – by Spider-Man). Slowly, but surely, Marvel’s been bringing everyone back into their bosom, and now it seems another character maybe ready to take their rightful place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not to mention Atlantis. (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…)

Following up on the news that Luke Cage will be streamed far and wide this coming September, a key Marvel Entertainment figure is now talking about that show’s follow-up, Iron Fist. Of course, the journey of Iron Fist has not been a smooth one, as work progressed steadily on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, Iron Fist seemed to be stuck in neutral, unable to even make it off the drawing board. At one point there was even a rumor that Marvel and Netflix were going to scrap Iron Fist for a series based on The Punisher. But now that there’s forward motion on Iron Fist, we’re being told to expect something, ahem, different when it finally debuts. (more…)

Now that the Tomcat is out of the bag (I’m NOT apologizing for that!) and everyone knows who’s going to be suiting up as Marvel’s most popular hero, it’s time to get down into the smaller details, like the suit’s design. Given that the spider-suit is a significant part of Spider-Man‘s iconic appeal, Marvel and Sony are surely feeling the pinch to get the costume right for their film fans. IGN managed to corner Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada at SDCC and wrangle some exciting details about the costume out of him, which we also have to share with all of you fine webheads.  (more…)

Marvel fans all over the globe cheered when it was announced that the screen rights to Daredevil were back in Marvel’s capable hands.  Those cheers were nothing compared to those that were inspired by the news that the Man Without Fear would be starring in his own Netflix series.  Now that production has been underway for quite some time, Marvel is finally ready to let the rest of us know what the new logo for the series will look like.

Death of Wolverine -- exclusive EW.com image

He’s only (arguably) the most powerful man in comics and comic-related media, but Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada was once a simple artist for anyone who could pay to cover the cost of sharpening his pencils. Well every now and then he likes to remind himself, and us, of his humble beginnings, and it’s usually around the special occasion of a mega-crossover, or the death of a popular character. And hey, there’s no greater comic artist catnip than the title, The Death of Wolverine. (more…)

With the insanity of Comic Con in our rear-view mirrors, it’s back to business as usual in the geek news reporting world. This bit comes from last weekend’s panel headed by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada. Tagging along were writers Mark Waid and Dan Slott, all fielding questions concerning Daredevil’s 50th Anniversary. Eventually the grilling leaned toward what they and Netflix were planning to do with the upcoming 13-episode television series. Now, we’ve all heard the news about Double-D taking on a “gritty” feel with a 70’s New York City flair. But there was never any mention of when the show was expected to air. Up until now, anyway.
