FX Networks just posted the first look at Legion, the highly-anticipated new drama series from Fargo creator Noah Hawley. This first official trailer of Legion was unveiled only moments ago at San Diego Comic-Con during the Cup O’ Joe Panel with Marvel COO Joe Quesada.

Legion follows David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and visions might be real.
Check out the trailer below. Let us know what you think.

It’s fair to say that Marvel pulled no punches during its San Diego Comic-Con panel yesterday evening, wowing fans with all-new teasers for the inaugural season of Luke Cage, the Defenders series and even Iron Fist, which places Game of Thrones star Finn Jones in the title role.
Aligned for a premiere in early 2017 – likely in and around the same window as Jessica Jones season 2 – Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada told IGN that Iron Fist will come packing more villains than any other Marvel series to date. That’s quite the tease, and it looks as though Danny Rand will have his hands full fending off Harold and Ward Meachum among many, many more.
“The cast is amazing. Another show that will be completely different from Luke, Jessica and Daredevil. That’s really our goal. We’re trying to offer four shows, that live in the »

In a new interview with IGN, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada touched on his work on the Marvel TV shows and revealed something particularly interesting regarding the company's upcoming Iron Fist collaboration with Netflix. "The cast is amazing. Another show that will be completely different from Luke, Jessica and Daredevil. That's really our goal. We're trying to offer four shows, that live in the same universe but offer fans a completely different look. Martial arts will play a huge part in Iron Fist. I would also say that Iron Fist has more villains, in our first season, than any of our other shows. There's a lot going on. Scott Buck, the showrunner and his writing team have created a fantastic story for us and have wove in some great legends from Marvel present past. We're still in production so we're not quite at the point where we'll begin promoting »
Directly inverse to one of the primary complaints about Marvel's big screen efforts- namely that most of the villains are weak sauce- is the fact that the baddies in their Netflix shows have been pretty awesome. Most people loved Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin in Daredevil, and few can argue that David Tennant''s Kilgrave wasn't thrilling to watch on Jessica Jones. According to Marvel's Joe Quesada, their plans for Iron Fist include beefing up the rogue factor.
In a chat with IGN, Quesada revealed that Iron Fist- which, if you haven't seen the teaser for yet you absolutely should- may very well have the largest collection of rogues we've yet to see on these highly-regarded Marvel/Netflix shows.
"I would say that Iron Fist has probably more villains in our first season than any of our other shows."
So it sounds like Marvel intends to up the ante »

Daredevil season two introduced us to The Punisher and Elektra, and while we all know that we'll see Matt Murdock in The Defenders, there are still a lot of unresolved plot threads which need and deserve to be addressed in The Man Without Fear's solo series. Well, Joe Quesada confirmed at Comic-Con today that it's happening, and the teaser below - which reveals very little - makes that 100% official. As of right now, there's no word on a premiere date, with Netflix saying only that it's "coming soon". The nline streaming service has previously said that they'll be sticking to two Marvel shows a year, so unless they're willing to change that policy (which they may have to soon), we may end up waiting until 2018 or beyond. Either way, it's just nice to know that it's actually happening, don't you agree? Next stop: Hell’s Kitchen. Daredevil Season 3 is coming soon. »

San Diego Comic-Con is little over a week away at this point, and sure enough, the Powers That Be over at Marvel – and indeed every other major studio and network – are prepping to showcase their wares for the remainder of 2016 and beyond.
On the heels of Daredevil‘s gripping second season, it is Luke Cage who will take up residence on Netflix later this year, and ahead of Sdcc 2016 kicking into gear, Marvel has unveiled key art for the Mike Colter-fronted series.
Hailing from TV Insider, the stark, minimalist artwork is an effective tease, directing attention to Colter’s musclebound, seemingly impenetrable hero more than anything else. Following up on his first appearance in Jessica Jones late last year, Colter’s Hero for Hire is the third member of Marvel’s Defenders family to get his own standalone series, with Iron Fist poised to leap onto the streaming service »

Hebecomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, but is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city–forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

In the wake of DC Entertainment introducing 'Aquaman' in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has confirmed that screen rights to Marvel Comics' "Namor the Sub-Mariner", the first Atlantean comic book anti-hero, are back with Marvel Studios:
"I can't speak for the studios," said Quesada about Marvel recovering screen rights to Namor from Universal.
"But as far as I know, yeah we do (have screen rights). It’s not at Fox, it’s not at Sony...Yeah."
"Let’s put it this way – there are entanglements that make it less easy.
"There are older contracts that still involve other parties that means we need to work things out before we move forward on it.
"...as opposed to an 'Iron Man' or any »

Print is a dying breed. Newspapers and magazines are seeing subscriber numbers dwindle in the wake of the digital revolution. Why should folks pay for a physical copy of a publication that may not survive the wrath of a poorly trained paperboy or a malicious mailman when they can get the same content on their mobile device?
Comic book companies, while still selling pretty consistently, are finding ways to adjust to the changing ways folks buy their products. Marvel Comics stands out with their Marvel Unlimited app. For $9.99 a month or $69 a year, subscribers have access to over 17,000 comics and counting. New comics hit every Monday. Comics that are on sale at your local comic book store today will hit Unlimited about six months after they hit shelves. Marvel Unlimited is a great tool for folks that want to dive into the Marvel Universe, yet are hesitant due to not knowing where to start reading. »

There has been a great deal of back and forth about whether Marvel Studios has the rights to use Namor in their cinematic universe over the last several years. Recently, however, Marvel Cco Joe Quesada indicated that he is safely in Marvel's hands. "I can't speak for studios," Quesada said on a recent stint on the Fatman on Batman podcast, "As far as I know, yeah we do. It’s not at Fox, it’s not at Sony." There's also been some talk of 20th Century Fox returning the rights to The Fantastic Four to Marvel after their most recent -- and disastrous -- outing with the characters. Here, Donna Dickens and Roth Cornet talk about how The Sub-Mariner might enter the McU and how he could tie into The Fantastic Four. Take a look in the player above or below and chat with us here or on Twitter. Roth: @RothCornet Donna: @MildlyAmused »
