Mike Colter says Luke Cage is “geared towards an adult audience”

4 March 2015 1:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mike Colter is set to play Luke Cage in A.K.A. Jessica Jones next year before getting his own series shortly thereafter. We’ve already heard that Daredevil will be taking on a “dark and gritty” tone which is unlike the McU movies, but what can we expect from Luke Cage?

“It’s geared towards an adult audience, which is something that will be different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that you’ve seen before on the big screen,” he told IGN. “I’m excited about playing the character because I’ve read the comic books. They’re very detailed, gritty; the world they’ve written in the comic books is very clear. Marvel does a fantastic job about bringing human stories – because you’re telling big stories with a heart at the centre of it – and that’s what connects all of the characters to our audience members.

Watch: First Official 'Elephant Song' Trailer Featuring Xavier Dolan

20 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'll make you a deal - I want three things..." With this film now playing in theaters in Canada, there's no better time to feature the first official trailer for Elephant Song from Canadian distributor eOne Films. Elephant Song is a psychological drama starring Xavier Dolan, the same filmmaker who made Mommy and Laurence Anyways, as a rather eerie patient with a mysterious past. Captain Pike of Star Trek, actor Bruce Greenwood, also stars as the hospital's director, and both Catherine Keener and Carrie-Anne Moss appear as well. I don't want to give away anything else in the plot, but the trailer should give you a good idea what's going on. I missed seeing this at Tiff, and I've been waiting to catch it. I've got to say, this trailer makes me more intrigued, even if I prefer Dolan as a director he certainly can act, too. Take a look. »

Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones Nabs Three New Cast Members

19 February 2015 11:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones has just gained three new cast additions, in the form of The Originals’ Eka DarvilleThe Kings of Summer actress Erin Moriarty, and Red Widow‘s Wil Traval.

Based on the initial casting report, the trio won’t be taking on roles of pre-established comic book characters, but will instead play smaller supporting parts. However, the character descriptions are just vague enough to suggest that maybe there’s more here than meets the eye, so I wouldn’t rule out any ties to the source material just yet.

Darville will play Malcolm, a neighbor to Jessica Jones “whose own journey will intertwine with her quest in a surprising way.” As for Moriarty, she’ll play a girl named Hope who becomes a client at Jones’ detective agency, Alias Investigations, and Traval will play an NYPD cop who “takes ‘protect and serve’ very seriously. »

The Week in Spandex – Daredevil, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Deadpool, Spider-Man, Suicide Squad, Legion of Superheroes, Green Lantern, Lego Batman and more

7 February 2015 4:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Our weekly round up of all the news and talking points from the world of screen superheroes…

Last week I promised to revert back to the usual format of the Week in Spandex following some technical issues with the site, but unfortunately they’ve continued into this week, so again time has been very limited as we attempt to rectify the problems. So, it’s another abridged version this week (and, unless anyone is desperate for a return to the original format, potentially going forward too).

This week’s news includes the arrival of the first trailer for Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil, an earlier UK release date for Avengers: Age of Ultron, rumoured directors for Thor: Ragnarok, comments from James Gunn on Guardians of the Galaxy 2, talk of Sony reopening negotiations with Marvel about Spider-Man, a shortlist of actresses for the female lead in Deadpool, Michael Keaton responding to »

Just two months after joining the cast of the Netflix TV series Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter was spotted on the New York City set during the first day of production. Unfortunately, we don't see the actress in her superhero attire, but, given the nature of the show, which is set after she retired as a costumed crime fighter, it isn't known if we will see the actress in costume during the 13-episode first season. At any rate, production is under way in Bronx, New York. As you can see in one of the photos, the production appears to be shooting under the code name "Violet."

Krysten Ritter will be joined by David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia "Trish" Walker) and the latest casting addition, Carrie-Anne Moss. While the identity of Carrie-Anne Moss's character was not revealed, she was described as, "a no-nonsense »
