Now The Martian seems unstoppable, as it's not only secured Matt Damon a good long while ago, it's been quietly building up its ranks in the past month or so, with Oscar nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor among the recent additions to the cast. What follows is a list of the big time stars that are on board to star in The Martian, which follows an extremely crafty astronaut whose crew leaves him behind on the red planet after a dust storm cuts their mission short.

23 October 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For a film that primarily focuses on an astronaut (Matt Damon) who is stranded in a colony on Mars and struggles to survive, hoping he can last long enough for Nasa to organize a rescue mission, there sure seems to be a lot of supporting cast members signing on to The Martian. Director Ridley Scott is at the helm of the film written by Cabin in the Woods scribe Drew Goddard, which starts shooting next month, and EW has learned three more names have just joined the film.

Sean Bean Boards The Martian

21 October 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

He’s been skewed by arrows in Middle Earth, beheaded in Westeros and drawn and quartered in medieval England, but do you know where Sean Bean hasn’t met a sticky end yet? That’s right – space. Alas, even the final frontier may end up as a resting place for the oft-killed actor now that he’s joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

Bean will reportedly play a Nasa flight director in the survival adventure, which was adapted from Andy Weir’s book of the same name by The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard. Though some of you may be wondering just how Bean’s character will wind up perishing given that he’s safely back on Earth, rest assured the actor will find a way. After all, he has a reputation to protect.

All jesting aside, word has it that, in a refreshing change of pace, »

Netflix Teases First Looks, New Suit For Its Marvel ‘Daredevil’ Series

13 October 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

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 »

First Official Images of Charlie Cox as Daredevil and Matt Murdock from Marvel’S Daredevil

11 October 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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. »

Marvel Comics fans can finally get their first look at Netflix's upcoming "Daredevil" series, as a new image from the show was unveiled at the New York Comic Con today. As seen below, Marvel and Netflix are teasing fans by not really showing us what Daredevil's suit looks like this time around. It's not exactly a clear shot of the Marvel hero, but vigilantes have to stick to the shadows, right? In a much brighter shot, here's Cox as Dd's alter ego, the blind attorney Matt Murdock. Do you see any similarity to Ben Affleck? We'll have to wait to see Vincent D'Onofrio as the nefarious Kingpin, with Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Vondie Curtis-Hall as Ben Urich, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Scott Glenn as Dd's martial arts sensei, Stick.  Meanwhile, here's some concept art by Marvel mainstay Joe Quesada, which »
