Two new photos have gone online from Netflix's upcoming Marvel TV series "Daredevil" which is due to premiere on the video streaming giant next year.
Both images show star Charlie Cox in character as the blind Matt Murdock - by day he's a lawyer, by night a vigilante fighting for justice in Hell's Kitchen. One of the shots shows him in a black Frank Miller inspired costume which already appeared in another batch of stills released earlier this year.

★★☆☆☆After an almost decade-long gap since Sin City (2005), you’d think that collaborators Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez would have made time to craft a watertight narrative and ensure that expectations were not only met but exceeded in belated sequel, Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For (2014). Sadly, that isn’t the case. Once again pulling from those tropes of classic Noir and imbuing them with a graphic, hyper-violent gleam the follow-up also sticks to the same circular story structure as the previous film, but it simply isn’t compelling enough this time around, nor does it feature that same colourful collection of frazzled lowlifes and crazed antagonists.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.
Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.
Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.
Innovation should be rewarded. Experimentation should be commended. For those two reasons I’m awarding the second Sin City film two stars. There are reasons to celebrate the cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s neo-noir series of graphic novels. They are garish mash ups of old stories and new technology. Visually interesting pieces of crime fiction that expose almost every cliche the genre ever created.
I was pretty tough on the first Sin City. I admired what it aspired »

Many months ago, director Zack Snyder gave us our first look at Ben Affleck as Batman from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The problem was that the photo was black and white, which left lots of detail out. Fans immediately started guessing what the real colors might be, with one popular guess being that the suit will incorporate the color blue. But now, we have the real photo, which shows a grey suit with black details, a color scheme closely resembling the one in Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns." The photo is directly from Snyder's website. And even though it still looks black and white, notice the face, which is in color. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
When Ben Affleck.s batsuit was revelead months ago as a tease for the upcoming Zack Snyder film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all we got was a dark, monochrome photo leaving colors of the suit up to the imagination. In the few months following the first photo release, fans added their own color schemes to the photos, creating the colored batsuits they.d like to see. But, now ComicBook.com saw what no one else seemed to notice. They found if you scroll over the thumbnail photos for the upcoming film on Synder.s Cruel Films website, the image becomes colorized. The blown up version of the thumbnail, seen above, features a greyish suit with black detailing. The color scheme, while incorporating a darker grey that doesn.t contrast quite as well with the black detailing is most closely related to Frank Miller.s batsuit in The Dark »

It was an invite to review a Blu-ray like any other, or so I thought. You get your disc, you take your chances. Sometimes everyone goes home with a smile on their faces, sometimes people go to the emergency room… without any face. I heard from the people that know that a sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City was in town. Looking for trouble. Out to bust some heads and blow some minds. Sin City and me, we go way back. We had history. Once we’d been lovers but time had moved us apart. So when this new bozo turns up, A Dame to Kill For, »

According to a report from Bleeding Cool, Frank Miller is set to team with current Batman writer Scott Snyder to pen a threequel to Miller’s seminal comic book The Dark Knight Returns and its less-seminal sequel The Dark Knight Strikes Again.
According to the site, the story “would concern Carrie Kelley, the Robin of Dark Knight, now in her elder years. She is now in a similar position to that of Bruce Wayne in the original Dark Knight, and she is seeking her own successor to protect Gotham.”
With Miller unwell and unable to draw the book, it’s said that DC co-publisher Dan Didio wants to see multiple artists working on the series, including Greg Capullo, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, Marc Silvestri, while Snyder is keen on Sean Murphy.
Are you excited about the prospect of another entry in the Dark Knight universe, with Miller writing alongside Scott Snyder? »

The graphic novel widely regarded as one of the best Batman stories ever written is getting a second sequel. After Frank Miller returned to his future Gotham in 2001, Scott Snyder, the man behind Batman: Endgame is teaming up with comic book legend Miller (300, Sin City) to write a sequel to the classic Dark Knight Returns, the inspiration to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Snyder has been doing some incredible work on Batman since the introduction of DC's New 52, working on stories such as Court/Night of Owls and Zero Year. According to BleedingCool the story is likely to be set much further into the future than the first story and will revolve around an older Carrie Kelley (the original story's Robin) as she looks for a successor to watch over Gotham once she is gone. Unfortunately Miller isn't well enough to do the book's artwork and DC are currently »
While prepping to shoot the Daredevil season finale, showrunner Steven DeKnight took to Twitter to answer some questions about the upcoming Netflix series. The show stars Charlie Cox as the title character, but his rendition of Daredevil may look less familiar to some because thanks to the first stills that dropped about two months ago, we know that Daredevil isn’t beginning the show with his iconic red costume, suggesting that DeKnight and co. may be sticking close to Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s Daredevil: Man Without Fear. But even if that is the case, you can expect the show to branch out to a degree because during that Twitter Q&A, DeKnight confirmed that Daredevil will follow in the footsteps of basically every Marvel big and small screen project and include Easter eggs. Hit the jump for more on that and for DeKnight’s interest in working with The Punisher. »

Creating a comic is a complex process. Many writers state a preference for writing funnybooks over all other media: compared to, say, the struggling auteurs trying to maintain their vision in the light of the studio system and dozens (if not hundreds) of cast and crew members who work on a film production. Comic books, meanwhile, have a lot less people working on the, but they’re no less susceptible to the vagaries of fluctuating budgets, meddling head honchos and the changing marketplaces. Just as there are umpteen amazing unproduced movie scripts and projects out there, so too are plenty of unrealised comic pitches.
There are word documents which have been confined to a writer’s desktop, books which have been pencilled and never gotten past that point, revamps that were killed off before characters could even be resurrected. Through the annals of comics history there are lost masterpieces, »

Walk down the wrong alleyway in Gotham City and you're in for a nasty shock. Nobody has found this out more frequently (or violently) than Thomas and Martha Wayne, the most murdered people in all of film and television history apart from Sean Bean.
This event proves to be a formative moment in the life of a young Bruce Wayne, the turning point that spurs him on to a life of fighting crime as a masked vigilante.
The first big screen depiction of the Waynes' death happened in Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster. Here there's a twist in the tale as it's not Joe Chill but Jack Napier (later reborn as The Joker) who ambushes the millionaires.
This week: We drag our sorry ass back to Sin City, order up more Jump Street, and reluctantly head Into the Storm. ► After a certain amount of time, some sequels fall into .why bother?. Had Sin City: A Dame To Kill For come out a few years after the classic original, it would have had a much better fate. But nine years? What was original and cutting edge the first time around felt a bit moldy, with Frank Miller adapting some of his »

Spoilers: This article contains details on Batman v Superman that some readers may wish to avoid.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature an iconic scene from the Dark Knight's origins.
During filming in Chicago last week, Zack Snyder's superhero blockbuster recreated the moment when Bruce Wayne witnessed his parents being murdered after an alleyway mugging.
The scene first played out in the November 1939 issue of Detective Comics, with Joe Chill identified as the killer.
Subsequent films, TV shows, comics and video games have replayed the murder, although Tim Burton's 1989 Batman changed the killer from Chill to Jack Nicholson's Jack Napier, who eventually became The Joker.

What do you think about the photographs? Personally, I'm pleased to see that we are finally getting a origin that more closely resembles some sort of source material. But it's not just any source material, it's Frank Miller's famous gamechanger The Dark Knight Returns. Are you looking forward to this extremely respectful representation of Batman? Leave your thoughts in the comments below and let us know. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Jason Momoa, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Ray Fisher, and Laurence Fishburne. The film, written by Chris Terrio from David S. Goyer's screenplay, and directed by Zack Snyder, arrives in theaters March 25, 2016. »
When Steven Spielberg's Jaws smashed box office records in 1975 it ushered in a new era for the Hollywood blockbuster. The term, coined some years earlier for epics such as The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur, came to represent something more than just financial success after Spielberg's Great White tore through Amity Island. Usually released at the height of summer, this new breed of film had to have scope, scale and deliver on entertainment value. Go big or go home. The blockbuster now became a genre unto itself.
Tim Burton's first Batman movie didn't invent the blockbuster, but it left an indelible mark on cinema when it arrived on a wave of hype in June 1989. The film, like many of today's tentpoles (films designed to support a studio's entire slate), was based on an existing intellectual property and thus had an inbuilt audience primed to fork out money for cinema tickets. »
