"Daredevil" Costume, "Shield" Crossover Talk

23 February 2015 8:50 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's been a few photos and a trailer, but all off the shots of Charlie Cox in his first version of the Daredevil outfit in Netflix's upcoming "Marvel's Daredevil" TV series have been literally so dark that it has been near impossible to make out any details of the black suit.

Now, Film Ink magazine have made the character the cover boy of their new issue and have included the best shot of Cox's outfit yet, a more rough-and-ready version inspired by Frank Miller's take on the Matt Murdock character. Cox will reportedly slip into the iconic red Daredevil suit towards the end of the show's thirteen episode run which goes live on April 10th around the world.

Meanwhile a new photo from the series shows that the show includes a boxing match poster promoting the fight between Matt's father Battlin' Jack Murdock, and Carl "Crusher" Creel (aka. Absorbing »

'Daredevil' Magazine Cover Has Best Look Yet at Costume

23 February 2015 7:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we've seen quite a few photos and even a teaser trailer for Marvel's Daredevil, Netflix seems intent on keeping us all in the dark in terms of the iconic costume that Charlie Cox will wear in this new TV series. Most of the photos have been extremely dark, which don't help the fact that blind lawyer turned vigilante Matt Murdock is wearing a black suit. Film Ink, Australia's best movie magazine, has a new look at Charlie Cox in character, and it might be the best image we've seen yet.

Marvel's Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. The black suit we see in the below image was inspired by Frank Miller's take on the character. »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - A Female 'Robin' ?

8 February 2015 1:16 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, actress Jena Malone ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") is introduced as 'Robin', the iconic sidekick of 'Batman' in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

Malone is reportedly playing DC Comics' female 'Robin', 'Carrie Kelley', created by Frank Miller, first appearing in DC Comics' "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" #1. (1986). 

"...'Carrie' was a schoolgirl and girl scout who was attacked by muggers one night, but was saved by the recently returned and grizzled elder Batman on his first night out of retirement.

"She would then spend her lunch money on a 'Robin' costume and hunt down some petty con-men to find Batman again, using a slingshot loaded with firecrackers as weapons.

Her parents were very neglectful of her, as one-time activists and hippies during the 1960's that became 'apathetic stoners'..."

Steven S. DeKnight talks Daredevil’s black costume, The Kingpin and more

5 February 2015 12:06 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Marvel released the trailer for the upcoming Netflix series Daredevil [watch it here], which is set to open up a new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock takes to the streets of Hell’s Kitchen for the first step on the road to The Defenders. Following the trailer debut, IGN caught up with showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, who opened up about the black costume, Vincent D’Onofrio’s villain The Kingpin, and Daredevil’s lack of superpowers.

On the costume: “Really, the reason we start with this [black] version — which is hugely influenced by Man Without Fear — is for two reasons. One, this really is the beginning, the formation of Matt Murdock as Daredevil. On the flip side, it’s the formation of Wilson Fisk becoming Kingpin. It’s very much a parallel arc. We didn’t want to start him in the [red] suit. We wanted the »

Todd McFarlane reveals Batman/Spawn crossover that never was

5 February 2015 10:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Todd McFarlane has taken to Facebook to discuss a never-before-seen and ultimately abandoned crossover between Batman and Spawn, which he would have penned with Greg Capullo providing pencils. Here’s a look at a cover the duo produced for the series:

“Years ago there was a deal for DC Comics and myself to do a cool Batman/Spawn cross-over book (for those not hip to comic lingo, that’s a book in which both characters are in the same issue),” states McFarlane. “I was to have written and inked it, while a talented penciller, Greg Capullo, was going to draw it. for a variety of reasons (mostly on my shoulders) the book never got off the ground, but a few pages and promo pieces were done for it. Below is one such piece drawn by Greg and inked by myself.”

As it happens, the two characters have met before, with »

Slipknot’s M Shawn Crahan To Direct Ultraviolent Comic Book Movie, Officer Downe

5 February 2015 7:40 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The premise of Joe Casey and Chris Burnham’s Officer Downe comics is that an immortal cop can just tear through all kinds of chaos and rip right to the bad guys, even if it means half of his body is going to get temporarily torn to shreds while he’s doing it.

It’s like Tackleberry from the Police Academy movies was made into Wolverine and given a Nick Offerman ‘stache. The resulting comic, which I’ve only flicked through quickly, and not recently, is full of the kind of carnage and bad behaviour that brought to mind Frank Miller and Geoff Darrow’s Hard Boiled.

There’s now a film of Officer Downe in development, and it’s been announced in Berlin that Slipknot’s M Shawn Crahan will direct. According to Deadline, Crank’s Mark Neveldine is amongst the producers.

Fans of the comic can rest assured that Casey is involved – indeed, »

Daredevil: meet the characters from the first trailer

5 February 2015 12:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel's Daredevil arrives on Netflix this April. James talks us through the characters we meet in its first full trailer...

Warning: contains plot information from the Daredevil comics.

The first teaser for Daredevil, the first collaboration between Marvel and Netflix, has hit the web, and it's loaded with glimpses of what's to come. But who are all those people? We've used our radioactively-enhanced senses (and extensive comic book knowledge) to pin down who these characters are and what they mean to the world of Matt Murdock.

The Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio)

We don't see a lot of Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, but that head and silhouette are unmistakeable. The Kingpin is Daredevil's natural enemy: an evil businessman who's smart enough to stay on the right side of the law – so far as anyone can prove, at least. He's got plenty of blood on his hands, and as Daredevil, Murdock »

Daredevil: breaking down the trailer

4 February 2015 1:16 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel's Daredevil TV show heads to Netflix in April. And as the trailer demonstrates, it contains welcome defenestration...

This article contains potential spoilers for Marvel's Daredevil Netflix series.

Marvel finally let fans have a look at the Daredevil series coming to Netflix, with the release of the first trailer. It's safe to say...this looks nothing at all like anything we've seen from Marvel Studios so far. Despite the fact that Daredevil is a TV production, it looks far more cinematic than Agents Of Shield or even Agent Carter which, even on their best days, still look like ABC TV shows.

Daredevil, on the other hand, looks like it has a little more in the tank than Marvel's other TV efforts. So, aside from the numerous nods to the character's Marvel Comics history, we took a look to see what else sets Daredevil apart from the rest of its Marvel Studios brothers and sisters. »

Let's Take a Nerdy Deep Dive Into Marvel and Netflix's Badass 'Daredevil' Trailer

4 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This isn’t your Ben Affleck’s Daredevil.

Marvel has unveiled the first trailer for their gritty, dark take on Daredevil, the first of four 13-episode series to premiere on Netflix. And it looks nothing like the campy action flick starring Affleck, Jennifer Garner, and Colin Farrell. Take a look:

Marvel says, “Meet Matt Murdock. Blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt fights injustice by day as a respected lawyer and by night as the masked vigilante known as Daredevil in Hell's Kitchen, New York. He'll do anything to make his city a better place, but at what price?”

News: Why you should be excited about ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Captain Marvel’

But let’s take a deep dive and really break down what we’re seeing: This is Matt Murdock A.K.A. Daredevil (played by Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox).

Charlie Cox gives his thoughts on the Ben Affleck Daredevil movie; talks Daredevil’s powers

4 February 2015 3:18 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we got a brief look at Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil ahead of the full trailer landing later on today. In an interview with the Scratch the Surface Podcast (via Cbm), Charlie Cox (who will be playing the titular role) spoke out about the 2003 Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck as well as how they will be portraying his powers in the new show.

“I thought it was fun at times,” Cox said of the 2003 movie. “I just don’t think to make that movie in that tone suits Daredevil, it doesn’t really work for that character and that world.”

In the 2003 movie, Daredevil’s radar senses was depicted by a blue-tint “sound vision”, not too dissimilar to Frank Miller’s vision during his run on the comic (albeit a different colour).

“We had to adapt certain things for the purpose of story telling,” Cox said about the show »

Marvel Countdown: How Fox Put the "Ultimate" in 'Fantastic Four'

3 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

You might’ve seen the first trailer for 2015’s Fantastic Four and thought some of the same things we thought; namely, that it doesn’t quite look like the wild and wooly world that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby kicked off the Marvel universe with way back in 1961. It’s a deadly serious trailer, mostly devoid of FX money shots, selling an overall adult tone over the thrills one would expect of the Fantastic Four. At least early on it’s being marketed as a sci-fi film, not a superhero one. Sometimes comic book filmmakers will cite inspiration from a source material that isn’t necessarily evident on the screen. There’s no trace of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns in Batman Forever for instance, though Joel Schumacher tried to spin it...

Questions raised by Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

2 February 2015 1:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What kind of Catwoman did Anne Hathaway turn out to be in Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises?

“I am Catwoman: hear me… make you question things, a bit”

Some confusing events can only be fully dealt with and understood with time. And so, three years later, it finally feels safe to look back at Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, and some of the questions you may have found yourself pondering in the cinema at the time.

Before going in and finding your seat, the questions were along the lines of: can Anne Hathaway pull this off? Will her performance stop the recurring nightmares about Halle Berry’s attempt? How will this film even work without the Joker? You got your answers on those – the nightmares will never stop – but here are some Qs we’re still struggling with…

10 Surprising Things Sixties Batman Shares With The Dark Knight

29 January 2015 12:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Do you know what Christopher Nolan’s first exposure to Batman was? It wasn’t Frank Miller’s grim ‘n’ gritty comic books The Dark Knight Returns or Year One, the latter of which was drawn on heavily by the director. It wasn’t Grant Morrison and Dave McKean’s Arkham Asylum, the first truly deep psychological analysis of the character and his enemies. Not the gold standard Batman: The Animated Series.

“I think like a lot of people my age, my first memories of Batman were from the television series with Adam West,” he says. Yes, the sixties Batman, with all of its high camp, go-go dancing, and sound effects popping up on screen. So pretty much the polar opposite of Nolan’s grounded, realistic take on the character in his Dark Knight trilogy. Right.

Well, don’t be so sure. “Still, I think that for something »

More details on Jared Leto’s Joker in Suicide Squad, “everyone is afraid of him”

26 January 2015 11:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We had some small news about The Joker’s role in Suicide Squad previously due to some early script leaks (he will take a Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs type role), and now we have some new details.

According to the good folk over at JoBlo, the idea of The Joker in the Suicide Squad is to tease previous battles with Batman before the two theoretically collide in a Batman solo movie which is said to take on the Joker section of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. The website claims that “The Joker is scarred all over his body because of his battles with Batman, he plays mind games with people and twists [their] minds, [and] everyone is afraid of him.”

In other Suicide Squad news, JoBlo also claim that Enchantress (played by Cara Delevingne) is “crazy” in a good way and is “really powerful and instrumental »

Batman v Superman Fight Choreographer talks fighting

21 January 2015 1:36 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Not since Ivan Drago squared off against Rocky, have we awaited such a battle. Batman and Superman going toe to toe, cape to cape. Readers of the Frank Miller graphic novel will be all too aware of how this goes, and it's not how you'd think. Guillermo Grispo is the fight choreographer for next year's over hyped (and probably fucked up badly) Batman v Superman. Personally, I have very little hope that they'll get this movie right as it, like other DC movies have been surrounded with more problems than you'd expect. However, we may be in for a treat when it comes to the finale.  Speaking about how Bats and Supes square off, Crispo says“There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that the Superman will squash him like a bug. But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there’s a very »

Batman V Superman’s Batman To Possibly Show Up In New Suicide Squad Movie,New Details

21 January 2015 11:43 AM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

According to a new report from Forbes.com, new rumors are floating about, claiming that Ben Affleck's Batman from the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick, might be making a cameo appearance in the upcoming "Suicide Squad' super hero flick. They went on to say that there are reports claiming Batman's scene will likely be at the end of the movie and focused on certain circumstances involving the Joker. From there, that would set up the Joker to be a possible/likely antagonist in the solo Batman movie that’s planned to come out in the next few years, which they've heard will take some inspiration from Frank Miller’s comic book series The Dark Knight Returns — the third issue of which is a story about Batman facing off against an escaped Joker. They've also heard that Gotham City Police Commissioner ,Ellen Yindel, »
