Charlie Cox (Stardust) was announced to play Daredevil on Marvel’s Netflix show of the same name a few months ago, and since then he has kept quiet about the project. We knew virtually nothing about the show prior to its panel at the New York Comic Con earlier this month where the cast spoke about working on the project [watch the panel here], and now Cox has divulged more information in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter…
“It’s great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility, I wasn’t really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to Comic Con last week, and it’s really important to a lot of people. It really is. I’m having a great time.”
Cox went on to talk about research and the shows “darker” tone: “I’ve read »

Marvel's first original Netflix series coming in 2015 is Daredevil starring Charlie Cox as the title character. THR was able to talk to Cox about preparing for the role of Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil, and the show's take on the hero.
Cox on production of Daredevil:
"It's great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility. I wasn't really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to [New York] Comic Con last week, and it's really important to a lot of people. It really is. I'm having a great time."
His preparation for the role:
"I've read comics after comics after comics — I've never read so many comics in my life, and we're finding moments from the comics to reference in the show."
The show's take on the Daredevil:
"We're trying to make a show that's new and much, »

Black is the new red, at least for actor Charlie Cox. The star of Netflix’s upcoming Marvel series Daredevil will be donning an ensemble different than the superhero’s previous portrayals. Footage from the show was revealed exclusively to attendees at New York Comic Con on October 11, 2014 and included glimpses of Daredevil’s new garb. The look is inspired by the “Daredevil: Man Without Fear” comic series by Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr. While some reporters believe the costume change is Marvel’s attempt to stay as far away as possible from the 2003 flop of a film Daredevil, the black clothing could simply be a prototype as the character Matt Murdock begins his journey as the blind superhero. In addition to the dark attire, Nycc attendees were also treated to a shot of Cox as Murdock in a grey suit and rose-hued glasses, presumably as he goes »

It’s been a little while since Marvel dropped some info about Daredevil, their first Netflix series, but this weekend’s New York Comic Con gave fans a little something to chew on. First up is some official concept art by Joe Quesada, which is a beautiful and moody piece.
The panel also revealed that Rosario Dawson will play Claire Temple, a nurse that help Daredevil and was an early love interest of Luke Cage in the comics and the way she is describe in the show makes her sound a little bit like a version of Night Nurse. It was also revealed that Bob Gunton will play Leland Owlsley aka the Owl, Vondie Curtis-Hall will be reporter Ben Urich, and Ayelet Zurer (the best part of Man of Steel) as Vanessa, a romantic interest of the Kingpin.

Now that Marvel has conquered the cineplex, the studio is looking to take over the small screen too.

The biggest thing happening at New York Comic Con 2014 is the unveiling of Marvel's Daredevil Netflix Series. Marvel, working alongside the streaming service, has debuted the first photo from this highly anticipated small screen adaptation of the popular comic book, giving us our first look at Charlie Cox as blind lawyer Matt Murdock.
Marvel's Daredevil first costume is inspired by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s seminal Daredevil: Man Without Fear, a series that is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential Daredevil stories of all time.

Marvel and Netflix have released the first images of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Daredevil and I have to say...they look great. While showrunner Steve DeKnight promised the show would explore the noir side of the Marvel Universe in a modern day Hell’s Kitchen, I wasn't sure if Daredevil would start off wearing the red costume or if they'd slowly build towards it as the show went on. Judging from the first images, DeKnight has definitely been influenced by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s run on the series (Daredevil: Man Without Fear), and it wouldn't surprise me if the storyline borrows liberally from their take. After all, it was a great run, so why not use it. Anyway, we're going to have a lot more on Daredevil later today with Perri's recap of the New York Comic-Con panel. Until then, check out the first images. »

Having shut it's doors in 1990 due to overcrowding, the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield opened them to the public again over the weekend to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Shawshank Redemption, which was famously within in the halls of the disused prison. Those taking part in the celebrations were treated to a 1940's themed cocktail party, and guided tours of the cavernous prison, which gave them the chance to see several locations fro the beloved movie. Topping off the weekend-long event was two screenings of the movie, with some of the cast, including Bob Gunton, who was unforgettable as Warden Norton, in attendance. No word on whether party goers had to leave the prison the same Andy Dufresne did though. »

It's morning round-up time, with brief thoughts on last night's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "Trophy Wife" coming up just as soon as I know the Papa John... I didn't get to review last week's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" while out in California, but that one and this one continue the late season roll the show's been on, and now I'm sad we only have one more to go before the season's over. (That's the downside of Fox trying to avoid repeats.) "Unsolvable" had a perfect opening, with Holt teasing Peralta with the hula hoop information no one else would believe, and a perfect closing, with a very drunk Jake and Terry finally joining in on a Salt 'N' Pepa sing-along with Charles. In between was pretty swell, too. Terry and Jake are a combo the show hasn't used that much, simply because the show has such a wealth of supporting characters, but Terry's »

The movies are filled with familiar faces with seemingly forgettable names. They’ll never see themselves on a marquee or win an Oscar, but people like Bob Gunton, Paul Gleason, and Brion James always make their brief moments onscreen count. Their presence often raises the level of a film, if even for a few minutes, but while most viewers would agree with the sentiment the actors go unsung in the general consciousness. Dick Miller is another one of those guys. He’s been in over 200 films, and while a couple of them saw him in a major or even leading role the vast majority found him simply as the clerk, the man behind the counter, the cop, the [insert generic occupation here] guy. If you’ve seen a Joe Dante movie then you’ve seen Miller in action, and the odds are almost as good if you’ve ever seen a Roger Corman film. Miller »

The gamble with depicting true-event miraculous survival stories is that it either becomes an ensemble, survival film (here we’re thinking a la Frank Marshall’s Alive replacing snow with cramped spaces or it abides to bold visceral and atmospheric choices a la 127 Hours. Coming off a major flop with Girl in Progress, Patricia Riggen is likely not stuck with a Hollywoodize the Chilean event mandate, and if Juliette Binoche onboard with a breathing a sign of relief.
Gist: Based on the real-life event, when a gold and copper mine collapses, it traps 33 miners underground for 69 days.
