Spider-Bar-640

In the wake of the Sony/Marvel Spider-Man announcement we can expect to see and read a lot more about Spider-Man and his addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the next few days. There’s still a ton of questions to be answered and the Internet being the Internet, you know we won’t just wait for the answers, we’ll speculate, postulate, and basically throw Spider-man Webbing at the Internet Wall and see what sticks. What’s the burning Spider-Man question we hope to answer right now? Where will Spider-Man make his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? (more…)

It’s one hell of a time to be a nerd. I’ve never played ‘Legend Of Zelda,‘ but even I know that the show was more about Link than it was Princess Zelda. You just pick that stuff up along the way. I was more of a ‘Space Harrier’ fan, even though the longevity comparison between both games is woefully huge. In fact, let’s take a vote! If you were to make a TV show or movie about a video game, which would it be? Keep in mind that those efforts often fail at the box office. You gotta be very careful about that. In the case of television, you gotta aim for those coveted ratings instead. That is, unless you’re doing ‘Legend Of Zelda.’ (more…)

Just a couple months after being cast for the lead role the Marvel/Netflix project ‘AKA Jessica Jones,’ Krysten Ritter’s taking in her first day of shooting. She was spotted on the NYC set yesterday looking very much like a young woman with something on her mind. And it’s not just the blistering cold. The story of a former superhero with PTSD, turned private detective to make ends meet, is definitely deep material to glean from. With the look on her face in some of these pics, I’m expecting our fair share of introspection in this story. Or maybe she was just freakin’ cold. Check it out. (more…)

Daredevil-Netflix-Motion-Poster

The 15 second teaser for the teaser trailer hit the Internet yesterday to get everyone geared up for today’s full teaser trailer from Marvel and Netflix‘s Daredevil series. It was easy to complain about yesterday’s teaser-teaser because after you took out the intro and the credits, we only really got 5 seconds of material to gawk at. This time we get a ton of stuff to look at, listen to, and of course speculate on. (more…)

With just two months to go until the April 10th premiere of all 13 episodes of Marvel‘s new television series Daredevil on Netflix, the first trailer for the series is scheduled to hit tomorrow. Not content to leave us hanging, Marvel has released a 15 second teaser for tomorrow’s teaser trailer and you can see it here. Marvel should poke some fun at FOX‘s Fantastic Four reboot and release a Director’s Commentary for this 15 second teaser later today. (more…)

Matrix Reloaded_Trinty

Is it alright to say, based on the cast alone, that I’m looking forward to seeing AKA: Jessica Jones more than the forthcoming Daredevil? The Man Without Fear is set to make his bow on April 10, the first of five Marvel Studios series to be released on Netflix, but the cast that’s being put together for Jones is already pretty awesome featuring a former Veronica Mars suspect, a short-lived Charlie’s Angel and the Tenth Doctor Who. Now a former freedom fighter from The Matrix is joining the fray, Carrie-Ann Moss, who played Trinity in the sci-fi/action trilogy, has signed up to be a friend, or enemy, or frenemy, to the super-heroine turned detective played by Krysten Ritter.

During his time as the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who, we frequently saw David Tennant as the tortured, but now it looks like he’s going to be the one to do the torturing. It’s been announced today that Tennant has been cast in the important role of Zebediah Killgrave, AKA: The Purple Man, on the upcoming Netflix series from Marvel Studios, AKA: Jessica Jones. It’s the first bit of casting to be announced outside for the series outside of star Krysten Ritter as the title character and Mike Colter as her fellow Defender and lover interest Luke Cage. But given The Purple Man’s role in the mythology of Jessica Jones, get ready to be afraid, very afraid, of everyone’s favorite modern Doctor. (more…)

New Deets About Netflix’s Other Marvel Series

The-Defenders

There’s been big news in regards to the long in the works quintet of Netflix series from Marvel Studios. Daredevil is about to hit the streaming site with all 13 episodes, and the titular roles for AKA: Jessica Jones and Luke Cage have been cast, but what don’t we know about these shows? How about brief plot synopsis and a vague release date for all the series including Iron Fist and The Defenders? With Agent Carter doing very well on ABC with fans and critics, it seems that Marvel may have the TV series code cracked, so it’s understandable that we should all get a little bit extra excited about what’s coming up with Daredevil. But what if I told you that we may get not just one, but two Marvel Netflix series this year? (more…)

With Netflix/Marvel Studios’ Daredevil now having an actual factual release date, excitement for the series is hitting a fever pitch. With just about three months until fans and the curious will be able to see all 13 episodes of the first season, the truly anxious are eager to get answers to a whole whack of questions concerning what the show will look like, what all we might expect, and what role the Man Without Fear might play in the broader context of Marvel’s series and films. Thank God for Twitter then. Recently, Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus) responded to fan questions on the social media site, addressing all manner of queries about his show, and his thoughts on the last attempt to make project based on Hell Kitchen’s antihero of choice: 2003’s Daredevil released by 20th Century Fox.

Marvel Studios and Netflix have announced a late Easter treat for superheo fans: Daredevil. The first of five series co-produced by Marvel and Netflix has been in the works since last summer, and is now just four months away from mass consumption according to the video streaming site. Daredevil, based on the super-powered crimefighter created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett, will be the latest test for the Marvel empire launching the series on – drumroll please – April 10, 2015. As per usual, all 13 episodes of the series will be available for immediate binge watching obsessive types just after midnight on April 10, hopefully tidying over Marvel fans just a few short weeks before Avengers: Age of Ultron. By the way, that’s not all the Daredevil news we’ve got. See below. (more…)
