With Netflix‘s first Marvel Studios series, Daredevil, chugging along like a well-oiled machine in principal photography, it’s interesting to note that we’ve heard rather little about the other three series in development. Along with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, Jessica Jones is being developed as a series by Twilight screenwriter (she wrote for Dexter too! Don’t hold it against her) Melissa Rosenberg. It seems that Jessica Jones will be next series to go before the cameras, and according to one source, the casting contest as to who will play the superhero-turned-private eye is down to one of four actresses. So who are these fantastic four actresses who are rumored to be the contenders to play Jessica? Let’s take a look, and proctor the possibilities of their casting. (more…)

A Most Miserable Development – ‘Series of Unfortunate Events’ TV Show Coming to Netflix

- 11-05-14Books, Film, TV Posted by Jason McAnelly

series of unfortunate events

Back in the year 2004, Paramount adapted a much-loved series of children’s books to the big screen. Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events starred Jim Carrey and several other well-known faces and brought to life a remix of the first three books in what is a 13-book series. And while the movie was brilliant and has become a classic among those who enjoy more sinister children’s movies, it was not in the cards that the franchise should continue and bring the rest of the books to life. Now, Netflix looks to be remedying this situation. In the near future, we can expect to see A Series of Unfortunate Events coming to television. (more…)

Marvel Entertainment’s mission to overthrow DC’s domination of the small screen keeps putting fans first, especially where Steven Deknight is concerned. The showrunner for next spring’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ series has no idea how to keep quiet about their plans. Time and time again, he’s stepped in front of cameras, microphones or keyboards to whet our appetites about Matt Murdock’s most exciting live action adventure yet. This time we have Twitter to thank for Deknight’s approach to sharing is caring. Having a severe case of “diarrhea of the tweets,” the tattooed top gun informed us about ideas for Elektra, the show’s rating, and more. Proceed without fear! (more…)

There’s still six long months to wait until Netflix premieres the entire first season of Daredevil to their streaming service in May 2015. That will be one long weekend of Mountain Dew, Funyuns, and Daredevil binge watching for a lot of Marvel fans. The whole thing is being shot as one big movie and it will be interesting to see how it works out. The series lead Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), while doing red carpet press for the Theory of Everything premiere last night in New York talked about the daredevil series. (more…)

Are We Gonna Lose Some Of Our Favorite Heroes For ‘Avengers 3?’

- 10-06-14Film, WTF? Posted by Aspry Jones

USE THIS FIRST

Bad Ass Digest dropped a couple bombs about the future of the Avengers movie franchise. It’s all speculation and we should take it with a grain of salt, but at least it’s worth thinking about. It all boils down to contracts, phases and long-term goals. Luckily these are three things that Marvel Entertainment are masters at manipulating. First, contract limitations kind of prohibit A3 from being split up into two films as previously rumored. Second, this movie is the springboard for Marvel’s famously talked about Phase 3. And third, it’s possible that Thanos won’t be done with our happy heroes by the end of that film. And it all has to do with saying a temporary goodbye to some of our favorite players. Possible SPOILERS ahead. (more…)

Netflix’s Release Plan for ‘Crouching Tiger’ Sequel May Be Another Game Changer

It seems that revolutionizing home video, video on demand, and television isn’t enough for Netflix, now the media giant has its sights set on feature film distribution as well with its plan for the martial arts drama sequel Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny. Netflix has already dabbled in film distribution buying documentaries like Mitt and A Short Game and exclusively releasing them on their service, but releasing Crouching Tiger II is a whole new game, and given the way that Netflix has torn down walls in the business models they’ve conquered so far, I’d say that Hollywood studios would have legitimate reasons to be concerned after next summer.

Amazon Who? Here’s The Rundown For Netflix Movies And Shows For This October

- 09-25-14Internet, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

NETFLIX

I love Netflix. Netflix is my best good friend and we go together like peas and carrots. It’s because of that god of streaming that I discovered ‘Torchwood.’ Not to mention those upcoming Marvel shows. Thanks to Netflix, I was able to see my beloved Bluth family do an ‘Arrested Development’ Season 4; and without them, I’d be looking at my Facebook feed asking myself “who the hell is ‘Crazy Eyes?’ For $8 to $10 a month, depending on when you signed up, the company offers a strong assortment of new and old drugs for your TV addiction. And it also contributes to the weaning off that outrageous leach – cable television. We’ve picked up a huge list of October goodies coming your way. Just let your pointer do what it does best to join the party! (more…)

Going to New York Comic Con this year? Feel good and smug about it? Well, just so you know, I hate you. I’m super jealous and totally regret not getting tickets. Especially after hearing what Marvel Studios is presenting. They’ll be coming to town showing off some spiffy footage (or more) for two highly anticipated properties, leaving us non attendees to scour the net for leaked butt cam footage or second hand footage descriptions from people who suck at telling stories (they’re the worst!). What could Marvel be showing off that’s got me all hot and bothered? Here, I’ll let Marvel’s head of Television Jeph Loeb explain (or you can simply figure it out from looking at the header graphic, duh!): (more…)

Netflix is flexing its financial muscles once again. This time around Netflix has procured the multi-territorial rights to Warner Bros. Gotham even before a the first episode has aired. What else makes this deal special? Usually those rights are worked out on a country by county basis and not packaged together. How much did Netflix shell out per episode? (more…)
