Daredevil episode 9 viewing notes: Speak Of The Devil

1 hour ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Do heroes kill? The writers of Daredevil are giving that question its due weighty consideration. Here are our episode 9 viewing notes...

With the whole series of Daredevil now available on Netflix, the race is on to reach the ending before someone spoils it for you. But that presents us with a problem. How do we approach reviews? It's not much use speculating about the future of the series when it's available at a moment's notice, but watching the whole thing in one go for a single review is impractical for anyone with a day job and personal relationships to maintain – to say nothing of how difficult it is to critically appraise 12 hours of television if you don't savour the instalments properly.

That's why, instead of traditional reviews, we're trying something new. An episode-by-episode unpicking of the show, looking at its techniques, characters and use of the source material. Call them annotations, »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice - analysing the trailer

18 April 2015 12:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's what we learned from the first trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

This article contains potential Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice spoilers.

In case you missed the internet crack open like the fiery pits of Apokolips, the new Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer is here, and it is quite the serious affair. Never before have fans seen the Dark Knight and Man of Steel share the same screen in live-action, but this trailer delivers exactly that plus plenty of clues for what to expect from the 2016 superhero grudge match.

So let’s get into analysing the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer...

Right off the bat, it appears we’re one step closer into the grounded aesthetic of Man Of Steel and about five removed. The first thing we hear is a media onslaught of talking heads judging whether we can trust an »

The Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Trailer Officially Arrives

17 April 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Next year, Warner Brothers are trying their hand at building a super hero universe, and the opening salvo, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has just debuted it's first trailer. While a good number of the Justice League will appear, this teaser is more concerned with building up the inevitable clash between two of DC Comic's biggest heavy hitters. Make no mistake about it, Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up is cranking the grimdark dial all the way up to eleven. While I kinda dig that they are directly addressing the destruction happy approach Superman had to saving Metropolis last time we saw him, Warner Bros.' 'gritty' approach to DC's superhero is appealing to me less and less. It's obvious Snyder is drawing from Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns (he always wanted to adapt it, and, god bless him, he is, throwing in some of »

Jim Parrack To Play Joker Henchman Jonny Frost In Suicide Squad

17 April 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad film has officially begun production, and while the main cast have all been revealed, the roles they’ll be playing have not. As such, a cloud of rumor and speculation still hangs over the film and will only grow as production continues.

Last week, Ayer tweeted out an image of the film’s cast at a table read and present were several faces that had not yet previously been announced: True Blood alum Jim ParrackThe Mindy Project‘s Ike Barinholtz and Flags of our Fathers actor Adam Beach.

Rumor initially broke out that Barinholtz will be playing Dr. Hugo Strange, Beach will play Squad member Slipknot and that Parrack had been cast as Deathstroke the Terminator. After the initial reports, however, Parrack’s role became less clear, as his own girlfriend took to Instagram to tell people that he wasn’t playing the orange and black-clad mercenary, »

Comics to Read Before You Die #19: Wolverine Vol.1

17 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the latest edition of Comics to Read Before You Die, Jessie Robertson looks at Wolverine Vol. 1…

Sept- Dec 1982

Writer: Chris Claremont

Penciler: Frank Miller

Inker: Josef Rubenstein

Colourist: Lynn Varley

Letterer: Tom Orzechowski

Editor: Louise Jones

The characters that succeed, that we remember, that endure are able to be painted in many colors. They’re able to take on many roles, be many things to many people, be an everyman in most aspects. Through the long and arduous struggle through what is comic book history, Logan has been that character. He’s been a savage monster, animal, drifter, teammate, leader, gangster, samurai, father. In what was his first book titled with his name, he’s human. Claremont takes the garish yellow suit off, removes Logan from Canada, removes all sign of the X-Men, and peels back a layer from this character that feels completely lived in and at the same time, »

Daredevil episode 6 viewing notes: Condemned

Daredevil Episode 7: “Stick” – Review

15 April 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen reviews the seventh episode of Daredevil

At the end of the last episode, we learned that the Russians are no longer part of Fisk’s plan (on account of them being all dead) which raises the question: who is next on the hitlist for Daredevil? Which arm of Fisk’s reach will he discover next? Well, with the title giving away the reveal of which character we’re introducing in this episode, the answer is Nobu.

Which can only mean one thing: The Hand can’t be far off.

But before we get into all of that, there’s the small matter of Daredevil now being hailed as “The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen” and being blamed for the bombings in the city as well as for the deaths of the cops who were shot by Fisk’s unnamed assassin (Bullseye?!). This leads to a fascinating dynamic for »

Marvel in the 1980s Panel Recap

14 April 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1980s were an important period for comics as they transitioned from the Bronze Age to the Modern or Dark Age of Comics with books like Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns. It was also an incredibly creative time for Marvel Comics with Chris Claremont and John Byrne beginning the decade with their “Dark Phoenix Saga” epic in Uncanny X-Men, Frank Miller’s run on Daredevil as well as the first event crossover Secret Wars and ending with the rise of artists, like Todd McFarlane and Jim Lee, who would later found Image Comics.

At East Coast Comicon, comics historian and researcher of the Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe Peter Sanderson, former Uncanny X-Men editor and Daredevil writer Ann Nocenti, and former Amazing Spider-Man editor Jim Salicrup chatted and swapped stories about what Marvel was really like in the 1980s.

Now Streaming: Marvel's Daredevil Takes The Leap

13 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Leave it to the Man Without Fear to take the Marvel Cinematic Universe to daring new heights. Even if that's just mostly to the top of a five story walk-up in Hell's Kitchen.   

Marvel's Daredevil is the first of the so-called street-level hero shows from The House Of Ideas and Netflix. Like the long overdue return of an old friend who's been out of town for years, it's utterly refreshing merely because it is also so wonderfully familiar.
Fans of ol' horn-head's often herald run in the Marvel Comics Universe should breath easy then. As many were expecting from the hype machine that lobbed words such as "gritty" and "dark" our way, the brunt of the show's story takes its cues from Frank Miller's classic early...

What Daredevil Comics Should You Read When You’re Done With the Netflix Series?

11 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Reading superhero comics can be a sticky business, one infinitely more complex than bingeing on a Netflix series. But if you're one of the countless people digging into the freshly released Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix, you may find yourself curious about the show's source material. Well, rather than wade through the thousands upon thousands of pages of Daredevil comics that have been printed since the character's 1964 debut, allow us to give you some suggestions for short volumes that can help you continue mainlining Matt Murdock after you hit the end of your streaming binge.Daredevil: Born Again by Frank Miller and David MazzucchelliFor decades, Born Again has been the benchmark against which all other Daredevil comics are measured — and with good cause. It's a brisk but devastating 1986 story about a subtle and far-reaching attack that Daredevil's archenemy Wilson Fisk launches to mentally destroy our hero. In many ways, »

Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto Pays Respect To Killing Joke-Era Villain In New Photo

10 April 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This week marked a key moment in pre-production on the upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad. Director David Ayer assembled his veritable cast, which we now know includes a couple of newbies, for the all-important script read-through. To document the occasion, Ayer did as he normally does: he Memorexed the moment with a quick snap which he then posted to Twitter. There was one thing missing, however.

Nowhere amidst the smiling faces of the impressive cast could we spot the film’s villain. As it turns out though, Jared Leto was indeed in attendance, which makes sense as he’s likely a major part of the script.

Here’s Ayer’s proof, posted to Twitter no less:

Vincent D’Onofrio Talks About Playing Marvel’s Kingpin and How Daredevil Is Like a Stanley Kubrick Movie

10 April 2015 5:24 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Starting today on Netflix, you’ll be able to watch Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, better known by the moniker Kingpin, on Marvel’s Daredevil. D’Onofrio has affection for his cue-ball crime boss and doesn’t see Fisk as a bad guy, rather as one who’s motivated by the same things that Daredevil is. D’Onofrio sat down with Vulture recently at the Loews Regency Hotel, wearing a snazzy three-piece suit for Netflix’s press junket. Leaning back in his chair with a toothpick in his mouth, he talked about drawing inspiration from Frank Miller’s comics, the grind of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and how working on Daredevil was like working on a Stanley Kubrick film.Were you a fan of the comics? Yeah, I was when I was a kid. I read Spider-Man, and that's how I knew about Wilson Fisk. The first phone call »

New Motion Poster Reveals Daredevil's Red Costume

9 April 2015 6:08 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A day before the series drops in its entirety on Netflix, the platform has finally given us our first look at Daredevil's signature red costume. This nifty motion poster takes us through the three stages of Matt Murdock, from sober law office-appropriate threads, to interim place-holder crime-busting training gear, to the fully-fledged scarlet hornhead. You might consider it a spoiler, so don't press play if you don't want to see it quite yet...The real journey to becoming a hero starts here. #Daredevil #Spoiler https://t.co/sjSEgpEn2Z— Daredevil (@Daredevil) April 9, 2015All publicity so far had shown the big Dd in the black outfit familiar to readers of Frank Miller's graphic novel The Man Without Fear. The red, we were lead to believe, would constitute an end-of-season reveal, just as it only appears in the final pages of Miller's origin story. This surprise early unveiling is probably »

Review: Netflix's 'Daredevil' quickly moves to the top of the TV superhero heap

9 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The last few years, some network TV executives have tried to do away with the pilot process, ordering shows straight to series based on a script, or even an idea, rather than spending a lot of money filming a pilot episode before deciding whether it's good enough to order to series. This is essentially like deciding to build a house on land that hasn't been surveyed yet and hoping that it'll hold the structure. The results have gone about as expected: "Hieroglyph"(!) was pre-canceled before a second episode was filmed, NBC decided to sell "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" to Netflix rather than have to cancel it after three episodes aired, and other straight-to-series orders have been delayed, or similarly pre-canceled, or (as in the case of Fox's "Weird Loners") sent off to die quietly. Netflix has had more success doing away with pilots, but that's in part because no one but »

The Evolution of Daredevil’s Costume

8 April 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at the evolution of Daredevil’s costume…

Ahead of The Man Without Fear making his re-debut on TV/laptop screens this Friday with Netflix’s Daredevil, there has been a lot of talk about his costume. Many were surprised when they revealed they would start things off with the Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s 1993 look from Man Without Fear, but Charlie Cox himself has confirmed that we will see the iconic red suit at some point. So with all this talk of Daredevil’s costume, lets see how it has changed over the years.

1964 – And it was all yellow

In his humble beginnings, Matt Murdock wore a yellow and black costume with a single giant D in the middle of it, however this would only last for six issues and would be changed by Daredevil #7. We would see this yellow suit again during a »

‘Sweet Movie’ and the body as politics

7 April 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Most politics in film end up coded, oblique, and vague, and not without reason. The direct, didactic political message can be bracing, but more often than not it doesn’t seem to hold up for posterity very well; the specifics of time get forgotten. The major stories of politics each day end up as nothing more than footnotes the vast majority of the time. When you want your message to be appealing, powerful, and understandable for future generations, it often serves you poorly to be specific. Even as someone who is moderately well versed in American history, I found myself often lost watching Secret Honor, Robert Altman’s one actor movie of Richard Nixon’s private breakdown. The broad strokes made sense, and I was able to glean plenty from it (and Philip Baker Hall giving the performance of a lifetime helped things greatly), but the specifics are lost to the time it was made, »
