Between Marvel, sitcoms, and returning favourites, Netflix is producing more and more original content, here's what we can expect in 2015...
Not happy with being the undisputable king of subscription streaming TV and films, Netflix has spent the last few years finding its footing in creating original content. It's enjoyed some big hits with the likes of House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, but has also produced some less well-received properties such as Hemlock Grove and Arrested Development’s resurrection.
Marco Polo, the service's big budget drama following Mongolian leader Kublai Khan, was a sizeable risk for the network and one that didn't exactly lit the critical world alight (though a second season may well help with the teething problems).
Looking ahead, it seems that we’ll be seeing a new face of Netflix before the year is out. Netflix has more upcoming projects than ever before and »

Welcome To Issue 78!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
It seems a lot of you are excited about the possibility of Spider-Man rejoining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and rightly so. I’ve been tweeted at, e-mailed and asked directly a whole bunch of detailed questions about how/when/if Spider-Man is making the move, and I can’t get more detailed at the moment.
Here’s why: the stuff I’m hearing is not coming from the rumored “Spider-Man” summit, so I don’t know if it occurred or what the subject matter will be. Marvel has plans as to how it is going to use Spider-Man moving forward and »
It's been a mess over at Sony Pictures for the last few months, and know one knows exactly what the hell they plan on doing with their Spider-Man franchise. The future of the superhero is up in the air, but it looks like they still plan on moving forward with that Sinister Six spin-off film, which is being developed by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods). The studio recently posted this image teasing Sinister Six on their official International Facebook page:
The English translation of the text in the image (thanks to ComicBook.com) is, "We have plans for you … #Spider-Man." I'm not sure why they would post this if they weren't still planning on making the movie. Last year, Sony gave Sinister Six a release date of November 11th, 2016. I wonder if they still plan on trying to get the movie done by then.
I'm a fan of Goddard's work, »

A new casting call suggests that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is back on - possibly before Sinister Six happens...
It's proving just a little bit tricky keeping up with Sony's plans for the Spider-Man movie universe. Appreciating that the waters have been muddied by the release of lots of stolen emails that have revealed all sorts of internal discussion over the future of the Spider-Man series (and we're not going there), the plan post-The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was to kickstart a Spider-Man movie universe.
Had The Amazing Spider-Man 2 been better received, then The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would be in production by now. However, whilst Sony considers just where to take the faltering movie franchise next, it seemed that Drew Goddard's Sinister Six film had made it to the front of the queue, with strong rumours suggesting that it'd introduce a new Spider-Man (replacing Andrew Garfield), and reboot the series again. »
In terms of TV series set to debut during 2015, few are as highly anticipated as Daredevil – the first of Marvel’s four planned Netflix shows. With an astonishing cast on board – including Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, Rosario Dawson, Scott Glenn, Vondie Curtis-Hall, and Ayelet Zurer – the show has already wrapped its 13 episode first season, which will be released in its entirety in May 2015.
Based on the Marvel comic book of the same name, Daredevil focuses on a young, blind lawyer named Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), who uses his heightened senses to fight crime as a superhero at night. Though the source material presents Daredevil as a ‘man without fear,’ the creative team behind the show (which was developed by Drew Goddard) have sought to express an alternative interpretation of that character, as Charlie Cox explained:
“Someone who does not have fear – literally does not experience fear – is not that interesting. »
