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 »

This week, a bombshell hit the internet suggesting that Sony was currently in some kind of negotiations with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and allow him to team up with the Avengers. Fans of the web slinger have been begging hoping to see him join the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for some time now, especially since the brand new Amazing Spider-Man franchise has been a bit of a disappointment.
While it would be great to see Sony and Marvel come to some sort of agreement allowing Peter Parker to team up with the likes of Tony Stark and Captain America, it’s certainly not the only option that Sony has right now. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 did bring in over $700 million at the global box office, so it’s not like they have dead weight on their hands. Why give the rights over »

A new report suggests Sony is rebooting Spider-Man, delaying Sinister Six and talking to Marvel about Spidey joining The Avengers. Crikey.
When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 brought home less money than its predecessor, at a point where the trend for superhero sequels is upwards, Sony knew that it had a problem. As such, it removed The Amazing Spider-Man 4 from its schedule, and pressed ahead instead with plans for Sinister Six and Venom movies, attracting the likes of Drew Goddard and Alex Kurtzman to write and direct. Furthermore, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was put back to 2018.
However, a trip to the drawing board is now looking likely. A new report suggests that Sony is will use the Sinister Six movie, which is still planned to bring in a new Spider-Man. So bye bye Andrew Garfield if that's the case. Furthermore, it's abandoned the release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, »
What’s the deal with Spider-Man? It’s the question fans have been asking all summer. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a major disappointment in almost all respects; following its debut grand plans to continue the franchise were completely reshuffled. As it officially stands right now, Drew Goddard‘s Sinister Six film will be out in 2016 and […]

Yesterday a rumor broke that Marvel and Sony Pictures were discussing the possibility of bringing Spider-Man into the Marvel cinematic universe. It looks like there's even more to it than that. Badass Digest received some additional intel regarding the state of Spider-Man at the studio. Judging by this recent info, it seems like the studio isn't sure what in the hell to do with the character. The site offers up three new bits of information on top of the whole Marvel rumor.
First up, there has been talk that studio is looking to reboot Spider-Man with the Sinister Six movie being developed by Drew Goddard.
"Sony is going to soft reboot Spider-Man with The Sinister Six, having a new actor playing a Spidey who works with the villains The Dirty Dozen style to take down a larger threat."
Whoa! That's a pretty big deal. Spider-Man is going to be the most rebooted superhero in history. »

Remember when you were a kid and you liked somebody, but you weren't comfortable asking that person out? So you told a few friends, and maybe they told the friends of the girl or guy you like, and those emissaries determined whether there was mutual interest. If it's an affirmative, an actual overture could be made without fear of humiliation on either front. If one side isn't interested, however, the other can safely deny involvement. The same thing happens at the corporate level. See, for example, the world of Spider-Man, where delicate preliminary conversations between Sony Pictures (which owns the »

Spider-Man might be making a move away from Sony and into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to various reports. Does that mean the current Spider-Man, actor Andrew Garfield, is going along with him? Right now, plans for the future of the Spider-Man series appear to be fluid, with ripples in the current changing the direction of the series on a daily basis. Following the report that Sony and Marvel might be working together behind the scenes to allow Web head to appear in future McU movies, Badass Digest follows up with confirmation that the plan is only one of multiple possibilities that have been floated for Spidey. and at least one of them involves recasting the role, altogether. If it happens, it would be in The Sinister Six, with Drew Goddard.s movie acting like a "soft reboot" of Marc Webb.s current series. The site notes that Peter Parker »
An unconfirmed bombshell was dropped yesterday when it was reported that Marvel Studios may be in talks with Sony Pictures to bring Spider-Man back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Badass Digest is reporting that Sony Pictures is considering a few other scenarios for the web slinger that may even include rebooting the character once again.
This new report claims that Sony may use The Sinister Six as a "soft reboot" of the Spider-Man franchise, re-casting Peter Parker as he joins forces with the title villains to "take down a larger threat." The site has also heard that Sony may put Spider-Man on the shelf for "four or five years," to see if they can build franchises out of The Sinister Six or other side characters.

Marvel’s upcoming Daredevil Netflix series may have been noticeably absent from San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that’s because the studio was waiting to debut the first glimpse at the Man Without Fear at New York Comic-Con instead. Today, Marvel officially announced their plans to bring Daredevil to Nycc next weekend and released the official logo for the highly anticipated show.
While the logo itself obviously isn’t very revealing, it’s got a great pulpy, comic book feel to it. It’s ironically unlike any of the more blocky, “gritty” logos used for the Marvel films, despite the fact that Daredevil has extensively been described as a look at the “dark and gritty” side of the McU.

According to THR, The Newsroom and Dumb and Dumber To actor Jeff Daniels has boarded Ridley Scott’s upcoming science fiction film, The Martian. He joins Matt Damon, and recently-reported actors Michael Pena, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, and Kate Mara.
Based on the eponymous novel by Andy Weir, The Martian centers on an astronaut (Damon) who is stranded on Mars after his crew is forced to abort their sixty-day mission. Daniels will play the director of Nasa who’s trying to launch a rescue mission.
The Martian doesn’t have a release date yet, but is expected to begin production soon. Ridley Scott is directing from a script by Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard. The film is being produced by Scott, X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s Simon Kinberg, 20th Century Fox’s Steve Asbell and Let’s Be Cops‘s Aditya Sood.

Jeff Daniels is in talks to join the growing cast of Warner Bros.' The Martian, which has Matt Damon attached to star. Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara and Kristen Wiig are also circling roles in the project.
The story is based on Andy Weir's 2012 e-book which centers on an American astronaut (Matt Damon) who becomes stranded on Mars, as Nasa launches a rescue mission to bring him back home. If his deal is finalized, Jeff Daniels will play the director of Nasa who is dealing with this crisis.
Ridley Scott is directing from an adapted screenplay by Drew Goddard, who was once attached to direct before he was forced to bow out due to his commitment to Sony's The Sinister Six spin-off. Ridley Scott is also producing alongside Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood, who first found the book that this project is adapted from. We reported in June that production will begin this fall, »
The woods have always been a place where horror writers and directors find inspiration, to the point that Drew Goddard's "The Cabin In The Woods" tried to dismantle the setting and genre entirely. But that doesn't mean there aren't more original stories waiting in that milieu out there, and director Jack Heller looks to send a chill up your spine with "Dark Was The Night." Today we have the exclusive teaser trailer for the forthcoming horror movie, and it sets the mood nicely. Starring Kevin Durand, Bianca Kajlich, Lukas Haas and Nick Damici, the film centers on a small town Sheriff who has to protect those around him when a logging company sets up shop and unleashes a dark evil in the woods nearby. Below, you can get a taste of what happens next. "Dark Was The Night" will premiere at La Screamfest in October. »

Ridley Scott is moving at a fast clip these days. While we’re still waiting to see if the director can deliver on the promise of the eye-popping spectacle we glimpsed in the trailer for his upcoming Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings," it would appear that the 76-year old filmmaker has more than a few exciting projects coming down the pipeline. The one we know the most about right now is “The Martian,” an adaptation of Andy Weir’s science-fiction novel about an astronaut stranded on —you guessed it— Mars. The film is set to star Matt Damon with a screenplay by “The Cabin in the Woods” scribe Drew Goddard, and has been blessed with a very awards-friendly release date of November 25th, 2015. Then there’s a proposed sequel to his beloved Philip K. Dick adaptation “Blade Runner,” which he recently met with Harrison Ford about (sidenote: the director »

Variety reports that talks are still in very early stages, and his involvement will depend on whether he can fit the project into his busy schedule. No details were given for the character he may portray, if a deal is finalized. We reported last week that Kate Mara (The Fantastic Four) was also offered a role, but it isn't known if the actress has accepted the offer or not.
Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars, and tries to find a way to survive while figuring out how to make it back home. The story is adapted from Andy Weir's book, which he self-published as an e-book in 2012 before Crown purchased the rights and re-published the novel earlier this year.
Ridley Scott might be involved in post-production for Exodus: Gods And Kings, but that isn’t stopping him from taking things up a gear or two on The Martian. In the last month we’ve had numerous casting rumours circulating, and the latest from Variety hints that End Of Watch star Michael Pena is in early talks for a part.
There’s no further details on what role the actor, who’ll next be seen in David Ayer’s World War II actioner Fury, might indeed play. Apparently this will depend on a number of factors though, as “sources say negotiations are in early stages and Pena’s involvement will depend on his busy schedule, but the star is interested in the role.”

The Cabin in the Woods was the final frontier for slasher films… or at least it should have been. Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s 2011 horror-comedy took all of the subgenre’s tropes and turned them on their head. It acknowledged every character stereotype and rejected each one. The slasher film received a complete deconstruction, and now it may be best to simply pack it away. Sadly, The Town That Dreaded Sundown heralds an uninspired return to form. It just may be the blandest movie to feature violent homicide and ruthless killers.
A remake of the 1976 cult film, The Town That Dreaded Sundown heavily incorporates its predecessor into its story. Set in Texarkana, Texas, the movie takes place several decades after a string of serial murders were committed. Each Halloween the town »

Ridley Scott makes new movies faster than you change underpants. And these aren't little indies knocked out on weekends. With his big biblical epic "Exodus: Gods And Kings" headed to theaters by the end of the year, he'll spend the fall switching gears entirely, making the sci-fi "The Martian." Matt Damon will star, and probably Jessica Chastain and Kristen Wiig (though the trades can't decide if they are in the movie, out of the movie or still tentative). And now another actress is perusing a contract. "House Of Cards" and "The Fantastic Four" star Kate Mara has been offered a role in the movie, and....that's the only news there is. No details on the part. The project is sounds promising, centering on a stranded astronaut on Mars, who must figure out a way to get back home to Earth. It has a script by Drew Goddard, based on the book by Andy Weir, »
