'Daredevil' Trailer: One Hero Makes a Difference

27 March 2015 5:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Exactly two weeks from today, Netflix will debut all 13 episodes of Marvel's Daredevil. While Marvel fans wait for Season 1 to stream in all it's glory, the studio has released a brief promo, which unfortunately doesn't contain any new footage. However, we do get a new snippet of dialogue, where Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock says, "We're gonna make a difference. I know sometimes it doesn't feel like it sometimes... but we are." Who could Matt Murdock be talking to? His law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson)? Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll)? We'll have to wait until April 10 to find out for sure.

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 supporting cast »

'Daredevil' Poster: A Hero Watches Over Hell's Kitchen

23 March 2015 1:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the motion poster that debuted last week, Marvel has released a new poster and photo from their highly-anticipated series Marvel's Daredevil. The poster gives us a good look at the first costume Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) wears, as he takes up the crime-fighting moniker Daredevil. Fans will also get to see that costume eventually evolve into the classic red costume with devil horns, which was briefly teased in last week's motion poster.

Charlie Cox is joined by a cast that includes Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsley), Scott Glenn (Stick), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), Vondie Curtis-Hall (Ben Urich) and Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley) in Marvel's Daredevil.

Marvel's 'Spider-Man' Is Peter Parker; Auditions Begin

23 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Marvel and Sony announced in February that Spider-Man is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a report surfaced that both studios were eyeing much younger actors to play the new Spider-Man. It has been confirmed that Spidey will appear in one Marvel movie first, presumably Captain America: Civil War, before the new stand alone Spider-Man adventure hits theaters in the summer of 2017. With production about to start in just a few weeks on Captain America 3, Badass Digest reports that 16-year-old actor Mateus Ward is the first known actor to auditioned to play the new Peter Parker.

The audition was reportedly so secretive that it was held at a house, not a production office, but it isn't clear if he has won the part, or how many other actors both Sony and Marvel are looking at. Even if Spider-Man only has a cameo role in Captain America: Civil War, the »

Ansel Elgort on Spider-Man rumours: 'It'd be a big commitment'

23 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ansel Elgort has addressed speculation linking him to the role of Spider-Man.

Sony is reportedly seeking an actor younger than Andrew Garfield to take over the role of Spider-Man in a new film rumoured to be directed by Drew Goddard.

Do we really need another Spider-Man?

The Fault in Our Stars star has been mentioned as a candidate for the role by multiple media outlets in recent weeks, but he appeared unsure of such a commitment in a recent interview.

"I like Captain America, I thought that was a dope film, really cool but I don't know, I've never done [a superhero role]," he told Screenrant.

He went on to say: "I think it would be a big thing to do and a big commitment."

Josh Hutcherson, Freddie Highmore and Donald Glover are among the actors who have expressed interest in playing the web-slinger.

Spider-Man will be featured in upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, »

Matt Damon pictured on set in first look at Ridley Scott's The Martian

20 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first picture from the set of Ridley Scott's The Martian has appeared online.

The photo, featuring the film's lead Matt Damon in costume in the desert, was uploaded to Facebook earlier today (March 20).

The image - taken shortly after the Superbowl last month - was shared by author Andy Weir, the writer behind the original novel of the same name.

In the movie, Damon plays Mark Watney - an astronaut who has to fight for survival after his mission is aborted and he is left stranded on Mars.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sebastian Stan and Mackenzie Davis co-star, alongside Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean and Kristen Wiig.

Adapted for the big screen by Drew Goddard, The Martian recently finished filming in Budapest and Jordan, and is slated for a November 25 release. »

First Look At Matt Damon On The Set Of Ridley Scott’s The Martian

20 March 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott’s unstoppable streak of cranking out a movie a year continues with his upcoming sci-fi adventure The Martian. By the sounds of things, certain parts of production are wrapped (Jessica Chastain finished shooting her parts weeks ago) and others are still in full swing on what appears to be a full-scale replica of Mars. Just kidding.

The Martian is based on the novel by Andy Weir, who took a snap of the movie’s leading man during a recent set visit. In the flick, Matt Damon stars as Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on Mars after his crew thinks him dead following a harsh sandstorm. They depart, leaving Watney alone on the red planet with only his frantically-whirring mind to keep him company and to save his life.

In this first pic (posted to Weir’s Facebook via Collider), Damon appears (in his Watney garb!) alongside his assistant Colin. »

First Look at Matt Damon on Mars in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

20 March 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Later this year we'll get another sci-fi flick from director Ridley Scott, and we're hoping it's better than Prometheus. This time there's not the pressure of fitting into the Alien universe and living up to the hype as The Martian is based on the book of the same name by Andy Weir. Shooting is underway with the film slated for release this fall, and Weir himself seems to be involved on the set, or at least visiting the production as he's just posted a playful photo with Matt Damon. And if you look in the background, you can see a practical Mars rover on the set as well. It's hardly an official look at the film, but it's cool to see. Here's the photo from the set of Ridley Scott's The Martian from Andy Weir's Facebook (via Collider): The Martian is directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, »

New Daredevil Motion Poster Sneaks In A Marvel Easter Egg

19 March 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The marketing strategy for Netflix and Marvel’s Daredevil has thus far revolved around its main man. Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock has taken center stage in all of the regular posters, motion posters and trailers. However, the canvas of the show is beginning to broaden, as this newest motion poster offers up some interesting reveals as well as incorporating the rest of the cast surrounding Cox.

Aside from the generally cool visuals – which all of the moving posters contain – this sneakiest peek packs in a few tidbits pointing toward the larger Marvel world. While it’s been stated that Marvel’s small screen efforts won’t interconnect with its gigantic Cinematic Universe, that hasn’t quashed the appearance of one recognizable landmark. In addition, Murdock’s final costume as the titular Daredevil can be spotted reflecting up from the puddle at his feet.

Watch Matt Murdock Transform Into Daredevil In Brand New Motion Poster

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

Undoubtedly one of the major players in the movie and TV industry, Marvel isn’t a studio to comfortably assume that its future properties will simply sell themselves. The marketing strategies set in motion for its big screen efforts as well as its small screen outings are always of the “go-big-or-go-home” variety.

In the case of its forthcoming TV series Daredevil, produced in conjunction with Netflix, the comic book giant continues to impress thanks to its continued teasers, stills and motion posters.

Released via the show’s official Twitter, a brand new motion poster now allows us a look at the titular chappie’s transformation. If you thought the last one was inspired, wait until you set your eyes on this latest version.

The ‘poster’ (which is actually a video) opens on Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) standing before the New York City skyline. As he adjusts his glasses, a bright »

Nikolai Nikolaeff.

Nikolai Nikolaeff plays a supporting role in Daredevil, the Netflix-commissioned series based on the Marvel character created by Drew Goddard.

Charlie Cox (The Theory of Everything, Boardwalk Empire) is the lead, blind lawyer Matt Murdock by day and the crime-fighting superhero Daredevil by night in the Hell.s Kitchen neighbourhood of New York City.

Nikolaeff plays Vladimir, a Russian emigrant who with his brother Anatoly (Gideon Emery) is trying to forge a name for himself in the Us. He filmed his role in New York last year but the full cast has only just been revealed.

"Playing a character on a Marvel project and being in New York was an amazing experience for me," he told If today. "I can't tell quite articulate the feeling I had of getting off the subway in Red Hook (Brooklyn) that first day and walking down the street to set and seeing »

Marvel’s Daredevil Adds Six New Baddies To Its Supporting Cast

11 March 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With less than a month to go before Netflix unveils all thirteen episodes of Marvel’s Daredevil, the specific details of the characters primed to go up against the titular hero continue to mount. Today, a sextet of new Marvel villains – set to throw a spanner in the works for poor Matt Murdock – have been unveiled.

While we know that Vincent D’Onofrio’s bald-headed baddie Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) will deliver the overarcing evil, there’s still plenty of room for more dastardly villains in the grimy back alleys and streets of Hell’s Kitchen. The six new characters include Person Of Interest star Rob Morgan, who will play Turk Barrett, a smalltime criminal in Hell’s Kitchen; and Dexter‘s Matt Gerald as Melvin Potter, a machinist caught between a rock and a hard place.

In addition, a new foursome has been announced in the shape of Fisk’s lackeys. »

The Kingpin Dominates Hell’s Kitchen In Second Trailer For Marvel’s Daredevil

10 March 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With one month left on the countdown clock before its entire first season airs, Marvel’s Daredevil is upping the ante of grit via a brand new trailer. Out of the five shows spawned from a deal with streaming giant Netflix – that includes Aka Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The DefendersDaredevil will be the first to land. By all accounts the show has a lot riding on its success. If it fails to captivate audiences and dominate social media like the majority of binge-designed Netflix shows, could this affect those other series’?

If you haven’t yet watched the above trailer, then please do, because the answer to the above question is seemingly obvious from what’s contained within. Where the first teaser trailer hinted at what lay in store, this sophomore preview is an aggressive attack on all that is good and holy… and by that we mean, »

Divergent Star Shailene Woodley Wants Another Crack At Mary Jane In Spider-Man Reboot

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

Enough time has lapsed since the arrival of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that we can all pinpoint the sequel’s shortcomings with relative ease. Marc Webb’s film strayed dangerously close to Spider-Man 3 territory, too concerned with setting up bland character arcs and lumping in an unnecessary amount of villains to focus on the one thing that really mattered: story.

In fact, said story was originally meant to feature Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter and Gwen, yes, but also Shailene Woodley as Mary-Jane Watson. Sporting the character’s iconic crimson-red hair, the actress filmed a number of small scenes for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that were later cut out as the sequel’s running time ballooned.

However, now that Sony and Marvel are pushing ahead with a reboot of the web-crawler, the Divergent star has revealed that she would like another crack at the role that never was. »

10 March 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Marvel has been finding commercial success on the big screen with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the past few years has seen the studio bring some of their properties to the small screen as well.

With Agents of Shield now in its second season, and Agent Carter bringing back a beloved character from the Captain America films, the next Marvel show is set to focus on an actual superhero from the comics. Titled Daredevil, the series will focus on the exploits of the titular character, whose real name is Matt Murdock. The show synopsis can be seen below.

A blind lawyer with his other senses superhumanly enhanced fights crime as a costumed superhero.

Created by Drew Goddard, the show’s first season will be overseen by showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, who previously worked on the Starz series Spartacus.

More Spider-Man casting rumours surface

9 March 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the big Spider-Man news last month, we’ve heard plenty of speculation about Sony and Marvel’s plans for the wall-crawler. Several actors have been said to be in contention for the role, while it’s also been reported that Drew Goddard reportedly set to write and direct The Spectacular Spider-Man for release in 2017.

Well, today has brought more rumours on the Spider-Man casting front, with a tweet from former EastEnders star Sam Strike about landing a role in a major U.S. blockbuster leading several sites to report that he may be set to succeed Andrew Garfield as the wall-crawler.

As it happens, rumour specialists Latino-Review have debunked the story, stating that he’s “probably got cast” in X-Men: Apocalypse or Deadpool, and that Sony and Marvel are still actively reading teen actors to play a fifteen-year-old Spider-Man.

Update: Well, it turns out he’s not Spider-Man, and »

'Spider-Man': Did Marvel & Sony Cast 'EastEnders' Star?

9 March 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, one of the casting rumors surrounding Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man was shot down, when actor Dylan O'Brien said he isn't in contention to play Peter Parker. There have been reports swirling over the past few months that both studios are seeking a much younger actor to play this new version of Spider-Man, which will primarily be set at Midtown High. Over the weekend, British actor Sam Strike (EastEnders) and his agent Lee Morgan sent out a few cryptic tweets that have lead many to believe he has been cast as Spider-Man.

The actor revealed that he is starting to hit the gym again for a role that he can't say anything about, while his manager said earlier today that his client, "has been offered the lead role in a very big Us film." Naturally, this could be any number of "very big Us films," but the 21-year-old actor »
