One of the fascinating things about the titular hero in Daredevil is that he’s visual impaired, but uses his enhanced skills to be one of the best @$$ kickers on the mean streets of New York. That’s not to say that blind people can’t be brawlers – they can! – but when Daredevil was created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett in 1964, that was a very forward-looking ideal. The world has changed a lot in the last 50 years, but in some ways people with visual disabilities still have to advocate for equal access, even to a Netflix show about blind lawyer and superhero. Well good news for the hard of seeing because Netflix is bring making the fun and action of Daredevil available to you through the power of described video. (more…)

If you haven’t already devoured Daredevil on Netflix, I’m sure you put a pretty good dent in it. And if you have finished, I’m sure there’s a Marvel-sized hole in your media life that likely can’t be filled by the weekly adventures of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and now you’re wonder just who, how, and when you’re going to be getting your next fix from this dark and gritty side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course you know the who, it’s AKA: Jessica Jones, the tale of the former superhero turned private investigator starring Krysten Ritter. The when is sometime later this year, but if you’re one of those types that wants everything right now, here’s a treat: Jessica Jones villain the Purple Man, in the flesh. (more…)

It’s the lunch hour, so why not make some time to get stoked about the biggest comic book movie of all time (to date): Avengers: Age of Ultron. The internet’s been exploding the last several days with new clips and promotion of the Marvel Studios film, which remains two very anxious weeks away from release. But perhaps your desire for superhero fun and excitement can be fed with the following clips. The stars of Avengers were very busy yesterday with red carpets and talk show appearances, while the studio is busy releasing new scenes, and new advertisements to convince fans who were already excited about this project mere minutes after 2012’s The Avengers ended, why they should be even more excited.

Daredevil

It’s the final countdown! No, not that awful 80s hit by Europe that’s now more commonly known as the theme music of GOB’s magic show on Arrested Development. We’re getting off topic, but what we’re talking about here is Daredevil. It maybe Marvel Studios third series, but it’s their first one for Netflix, and a drastic change in tone and purpose as recounted in the advanced review by Nerd Bastards el hefe Luke Gallagher. Still, we’ve been plagued by a singular question about the series that has to do with a very specific item: costume design. We’ve all wanted to know if the costume that Daredevil’s worn for much of his 50 year history will be the one worn by Charlie Cox at some point in the series, and now we have an answer… (more…)

Last fall’s big announcement by Marvel Studios not only revealed that Black Panther was amongst the next wave of heroes to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it also announced who was going to play T’Challa, the Black Panther, himself: Chadwick Boseman. Boseman will not only star in the standalone Panther movie, but his first on-screen appearance will be in Captain America: Civil War, which means that Boseman is going to be a very famous face once the summer of 2018 rolls around. So in casting the supporting roles, especially T’Challa’s father and Black Panther predecessor T’Chaka, they’re going to need someone equally famous. Like a Ghostbuster. Like Ernie Hudson. (more…)

Marvel Looking at Legitimate Teens as Spider-Man

Amazing-Spider-Man-2-webslinging

Every kid wants to grow up to be Spider-Man, and maybe that has something to do with the fact that you don’t have to be all the way grown-up to be Spider-Man since his great power took hold of him while he was still in high school. On screen though, Tobey Maguire was already 27 when his first Spider-Man movie was released in 2002, while Andrew Garfield was almost 30 years old by the time that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was filming in 2013. So now, as Marvel Studios and Sony are looking to re-cast once again, producers look to be making the shrewd move to set the next film apart by casting an actual teenager for the role. (more…)

In a little less than a month, Daredevil will bow on Netflix and at once the launch will usher in the next phase of Marvel Studios multimedia strategic takeover while erasing the lingering bad taste left by the 2003 Mark Steven Johnson film starring Ben “Batman” Affleck. Although the main big bad of the series will be The Kingpin played by Vincent D’Onofrio, the Man Without Fear is going to need other bad guys to beat up over the course of his 13-episode first season. Marvel has announced a few additions to the cast list, but in other news Jessica Jones has spotted once again in the City of New York. Or, I guess make that Krysten Ritter in AKA: Jessica Jones.
