Having landed on Netflix earlier this month, Marvel has now released a new character featurette for its Daredevil TV series, which focusses on Matt Murdock’s best pal and fellow attorney-at-law, Foggy Nelson (Elden Heson). Check it out below after the official synopsis…
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Daredevil sees Charlie Cox (Stardust) leading the cast as Matt Murdock/Daredevil alongside Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) as Karen Page, Elden Henson (The Butterfly Effect) as Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) as the Kingpin, Scott Glenn (The Silence of the Lambs) as Stick, Rosario Dawson »

Marvel’s first foray into Netflix original content has landed to much critical acclaim, with Daredevil being universally praised as a hit. Currently sitting at a remarkable 9.2 on IMDb and 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, the TV-ma series managed to do what the Ben Affleck movie spectacularly failed at – capture the gritty essence of the character in a realistic noir setting absent of any feeling of hokiness.
Charlie Cox knocked it out of the park as the titular character, bringing Matt Murdock to life in way the vision-impaired vigilante deserved, and the supporting cast of Rosario Dawson, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and particularly Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk. The man who brought life to the iconic Private Pyle’s version of the Kingpin is note-perfect whereas Michael Clarke Duncan’s interpretation was cartoonish and uninspired.
Now that an entire season has been completed and aired and a second has already been green-lit, »

When I heard that Netflix and Marvel were bringing Daredevil to the small screen, I couldn't help but grin. Now that I have finally watched it, I must say.. It's fantastic! There are so many other words I could use to describe it... The characters were fleshed out, and I appreciate that greatly. Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil is excellent. He's funny, badass, quiet and a bit broken. The chemistry he and Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson have is nicely done. The lovely Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page is great as well, along with Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk? Brutal, sentimental, calm, and even broken himself. He has many layers to him, which make for a very good villain. The fight choreography is awesome, no shaky cam or off putting editing, and the fight scene in the second episode (which I won't spoil »
In this exclusive interview, we sat down with the star of Netflix’s Daredevil Charlie Cox to talk about the first season, the upcoming second season, who he would like to see in the movie (Elektra and Black Widow!) and the chances of joining The Avengers.

While over in London to promote Daredevil, Flickering Myth’s Deputy Editor Luke Owen caught up with Charlie Cox to talk about the series and look ahead to season two. With the new season being announced for next year, how will this affect the line up of other shows including Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders?
“Yeah, I don’t really know [how it affects The Defenders], that’s being discussed by people who are much more important than I am,” Cox told us. “If you watch the first season, you discover that it’s Matt Murdock’s evolution into Daredevil. So by the time we get to the end, we’ve only just touched on that. So I think it’s valid to have another 13 hours where we see Matt Murdock inhabit Daredevil and live in that persona. So we’ll do that this year and it will presumably be released next year, »

Everyone is talking about "Daredevil," Marvel's new Netflix series that's become a cultural touchstone since its release earlier this month. So it should come as no surprise, then, that the streaming service has picked up the show for another season.
Netflix and Marvel announced the renewal earlier this week, noting that season two should debut sometime in 2016. The series will also get new showrunners for its second go-around, with Doug Petrie ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "American Horror Story") and Marco Ramirez ("Sons of Anarchy") subbing in for Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard.
"Daredevil" stars Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Scott Glenn, Bob Gunton, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis Hall, and Ayelet Zurer. It's the first of four planned Marvel-centric series coming to Netflix, with "A.K.A. Jessica Jones »

Marvel has managed to completely reinvigorate the superhero movie in a massive way. It all began with 2008’s Iron Man and then spread out to the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, culminating in the release of 2012’s The Avengers. But since then, Marvel hasn’t been content to just focus on the big league superheroes.
Rather, with Phase Two, they’ve started to branch out a little bit more. Not only have there been wild card characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy but Marvel even expanded out into television with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now comes the release of Daredevil, a Marvel-produced series airing exclusively on Netflix: a new move that promises to revolutionize the superhero genre yet again.

Netflix seems to have a penchant for renewing its original series faster than subscribers can click “play.” The streaming video-on-demand platform has renewed its Daredevil series for a second season, and has brought on Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez to head the show’s production.
Co-created with Marvel Television and ABC Studios, Daredevil stars Charlie Cox (of Boardwalk Empire fame), a blind lawyer-by-day named Matt Murdock endowed with superhuman senses he uses to fight crime at night dressed as the titular superhero. Netflix’s series co-stars several recognizable names in the film industry, including Vincent D’Onofrio, Ayelet Zurer, and Rosario Dawson. The first season of Daredevil debuted on Netflix on April 10, 2015.
One of Daredevil’s original executive producers, Steven S. DeKnight, is leaving the show for season two. Netflix has tapped Petrie (known for his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Ramirez (writer for Orange Is the New Black »

Galaxy Quest TV Series: Variety reports that Paramount Television is looking to do a TV series take on the 1999 sci-fi-comedy, Galaxy Quest, which starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman.

Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.
Synopsis of the Galaxy Quest film (via Blu-ray.com): "They're not astronauts... they only played them on TV. For four seasons, from 1979 to 1982, the crew of the N.S.E.A. Protector donned their uniforms »

The first season of Daredevil hasn’t been on Netflix for two weeks yet, but the overwhelmingly positive response to it has prompted Marvel and Netflix to announce that it will be receiving a second season next year. Joyous times for those who binged it over the first weekend (guilty), and want to see of the ‘Avocados at Law’.

This weekend, Conan writer Andrés du Bouchet went on his Matt Albie high horse about the current state of late-night comedy, taking aim at the "games and lip-syncing and nostalgia and karaoke" that increasingly fill the airwaves after 11:30. As if on cue, Monday night brought James Corden with a perfect example of what du Bouchet was talking about. Alongside celebrity guests Tony Hale, Rosario Dawson, and Sharon Osbourne, Corden turned his Late Late Show audience into a giant game of Guess Who, and ... well, that was basically it. No jokes, just four minutes of famous people playing a childhood game. But guess what — it was pretty great, a charming, inventive idea that takes just as much creativity as a solid monologue punch line. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
LL Cool J, Rose Byrne, and Big Sean were on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon Monday night, and Jimmy had them play Pictionary. LL and Rose were partners and Jimmy and Big Sean were partners. LL admitted he could not draw and ... he was right. Watch what happens when he's supposed to draw a tattoo and instead draws something vaguely phallic-looking and starts swearing and has to be bleeped out. It was bad. Rose was good, not that it helped them. John Stamos was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and gave Jimmy the "exclusive" on the "Full House" return, which is coming to Netflix. "It starts sort of as »

Our latest Daredevil episode begins with the past of one side of the New York City mob, the Russians, as they recall their experience in a Gulag. If you thought the level of violence would calm down following the previous episode, you’re in for a rude awakening as the Ranskahov brothers begin their escape attempt by ripping the bones out of one of their fellow, now deceased, prisoners. It’s a gruesome scene that just goes to reinforce that, though we may be in the same world as that of The Avengers; we’re a long way from the typical Agents of S.H.I.E.Ld. fare here. In the present, the Russian duo is dealing with a certain masked vigilante throwing a monkey wrench into their plans. As one brother gets thrown onto the roof of the car, the other makes for a daring escape with his fallen brother, »

A slower episode than last week’s slugfest, and not in a bad way – we get more of Daredevil’s childhood this time around, although we still only see the trademark red costume in the credits and have to make do with the black ad hoc ninja suit during the rest of the fighting. This season is shaping up to be a 13-episode-long origin movie, which suits me just fine.
Our story picks up just moments after the conclusion of the first episode, which ended on a not-really-a-cliffhanger in which Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) hears a child screaming for help. As the closing credits roll, we assume that, like Batman, he’s going to swoop down shortly and save the kid, but – surprise! – the kidnappers are ready »

With Netflix’ Daredevil currently taking the world by storm, it appears that Marvel Studios have done it again. After numerous box office hits such as Iron Man, Avengers Assemble, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians Of The Galaxy, many believed that the superhero powerhouse were doomed to make a misstep sooner or later. However, for the moment that doesn’t seem to be the case, with Daredevil offering fans something fresh in the form of a darker comic adaptation set within the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This has certainly been music to the ears of die-hard Marvel enthusiasts worrying about a potential relapse of Ben Affleck’s 2003 film adaptation. In fact, the gritty tone, aggressive stunt choreography and darker narrative structure could be seen as Marvel’s answer to Warner Bros’ current method of adapting their large library of comic book characters. With Daredevil seemingly accomplishing the impossible by »

When it comes to recaps, the standard operating procedure (at least for me) is to watch an episode and then write about it. Even if I have access to multiple episodes, I force myself to wait until the writing is in the can before I marathon through. Knowing what happens next affects my reactions when recapping. Plus, I would never forgive myself if I accidentally spoiled something from a future storyline with a glib remark. Then along came “Daredevil” on Netflix, in all it’s 13-episode glory. Suddenly, it’s as if the whole world has screeners! But everyone is watching on their own schedule. Without the structure of a time slot, it makes spoiler territory even more dangerous than usual. Watch too slowly and you missed the conversation. Binge-marathon in one sitting and risk ostracizing yourself as a spoiler pariah. So what’s a recapper to do? Stream-of-consciousness, obviously! »
