22 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming hot on the heels of the news that Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) has joined the cast of Marvel’s Daredevil, British director Farren Blackburn has announced on Twitter (via BleedingCool) that he’s set to direct an episode of the Netflix miniseries. Blackburn’s previous work includes the feature film Hammer of the Gods, as well as episodes of Doctor Who, Luther, Silent Witness, The Fades and The Musketeers.

Daredevil is set to start production next month, with Charlie Cox (Stardust) playing the blind lawyer / superhero Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket) as the Kingpin. Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus) serves as showrunner and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) will direct the first episode, which he’s also written as well as executive producing the show alongside Jeph Loeb (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). The series will land on Netflix next year. »

'Daredevil' Netflix Series Gets 'Doctor Who' Director Farren Blackburn

21 June 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Daredevil Netflix series is shaping up to be a must-see event for all comic book fans, as more talent gets added to the anticipated adventure drama. Drew Goddard was original confirmed to be showrunner on the series, writing and directing at least the pilot episode. He stepped down last month to focus his energy on The Sinister Six, with Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) stepping into take his place. Since that happened, we haven't gotten official confirmation on a director until today.

It looks like Farren Blackburn, known for helming some of the best episodes of Luther and Doctor Who, is stepping in to direct at least one episode, and possibly more. It is not known if he is taking over on the pilot episode, but it seems likely. Here is the official announcement tweet from the man himself.

Luther Director Farren Blackburn Confirms That He Will Helm Daredevil Episode

21 June 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

With Drew Goddard busy with the movie pretty much nobody wants to see (that's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spin-off Sinister Six in case you missed the news), Marvel hired Steven S. DeKnight as Daredevil's new showrunner and are obviously on the hunt for anyway for directors to tackle various instalments of the 13-episode Netflix series. While we don't know which episode it will be, British director Farren Blackburn has confirmed that he will be working on at least one episode of the drama which stars Charlie CoxVincent D'Onofrio and Rosario Dawson.  For those of you wondering, Blackburn directed the Doctor Who episodes, "The Rings of Akhaten" and "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe". His Luther contribution were the very impressive final two episodes of season three, and that his work on the Idris Elba led drama alone should serve as proof that he will have no problems »

Rosario Dawson Joins the Cast of Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil Series

20 June 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For star Rosario Dawson has joined Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk/The Kingpin) in Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming 13-episode Daredevil series which premieres on the on-demand streaming service sometime in 2015.

Interestingly, the official press release doesn’t reveal which character Dawson will be playing. They simply describe her as a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city. So, which well-known Marvel character could this be?

A reimagined version of the assassin Elektra seems like a possibility, and that could be why the studio are playing coy with the reveal. Other options include love interest Karen Page and recent creation, Kirsten McDuffie, an assistant district attorney »

Marvelous DA7E #51: Marvel/Spider/DC Universe Roundup

20 June 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to Issue 51 of The Marvelous DA7E!

What Is This? If this is your first time, know that Da7e is a crazy fan of comic book movie franchises. He's less a fan of coherent sentences. He thinks being a fan of something is the greatest way of loving it. 

This week: So much happened, let's speculate about our main 3 universes (sorry Fox, try harder)

Oh man, it feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve talked some superhero movie news and rumors. And there’s all this Star Wars stuff happening. While I often feel Bad Robot is laughing at me, I don't always feel that way about my Marvelous Speculations. I get my fandoms a little mixed up like a sweet-sweet cocktail. Other times I wonder if Disney is just my emotional counterpoint, gripping all the franchises I love in their Mickey Mouse gloves without really caring. »

Has ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3′ Been Delayed Until 2017?

13 June 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ah, release dates. They’re the first thing attached to a major tentpole feature these days, long before a director, cast or official title. Such is the way with the superhero genre in particular, as studios do their best to out-plan each others’ attempts to dominate the box office – with Marvel, Warner/DC, Sony and Fox all battling for quantity over quality in the next few years.

Part of that line-up is Sony’s Amazing Spider-man franchise, which saw its first sequel released in April of this year to an underwhelming response – both critically and commercially. The Amazing Spider-man 2 has currently grossed just shy of $700 million at the worldwide box office, which marks an all-time low for the franchise, and $60 million less than director Marc Webb’s first web-slinging reboot in 2012.

Perhaps because of that, it appears Sony is rethinking its strategy, with word leaking that the studio may »

'Sinister Six' May Hit Theaters Before 'Amazing Spider-Man 3'

13 June 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Is The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in trouble? While children and general audiences seemed to enjoy it, fans didn't respond well to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, calling it a mess. Now comes reports that Sony Pictures may be delaying The Amazing Spider-Man 3 until 2017.

Set to open on June 10, 2016, it seems that director Marc Webb may need more time fixing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and the problems that currently plague the franchise. But Sony won't be so quick to relinquish its prime summer real estate. Many believe that The Sinister Six, originally set to open 2017, will slide into its place.

Marc Webb was confirmed to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3 early in the year, with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman having already completed the screenplay. It was their work on the sequel that disappointed so many fans, with its overstuffed plotlines, none of which seemed to connect with each other. It »

Has The Amazing Spider-Man 3 Been Delayed Until 2017?

12 June 2014 7:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this afternoon, rumors broke out that Warner Bros. has big plans for their cinematic universe, which supposedly includes seven films that will arrive from 2016 to 2018. While WB takes steps toward building and expanding their DC brand, it looks like Sony may actually be taking a step back from their superhero property and could be delaying The Amazing Spider-Man 3 until 2017.

The rumor comes to us from Ain’t It Cool News, who included the cryptic nugget of information in their bigger report about the DC update:

“What does [Warner Bros' plan] mean for Marvel Studios? Fuck all, really. DC has to prove they can compete before Marvel makes any changes to their schedule. As for the Marvel orphans at Fox and Sony, I don’t know much about the latter, but I have been told that The Amazing Spider-man 3 has been moved to an undetermined date in 2017. Time for a second reboot? »

Marvel's Daredevil — Vincent D'Onofrio Cast as Kingpin

11 June 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Vincent D'Onofrio has been officially cast as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, in Marvel's Daredevil Netflix series. D'Onofrio will join Charlie Cox, who has been cast as Matthew Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil. D'Onofrio is a great actor, and looking at his career, he has played a wide range of villains, with notable roles in Full Metal Jacket, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, The Cell, and Men in Black. He's also pretty busy, with eight projects coming out in the next two years.

In the 2003 Daredevil movie, Fisk was played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan. I was hoping we would see another villain from the Daredevil canon and not a retread of what the movie did. With 13 episodes in the series, I'm guessing Kingpin will be the main, overarching villain.

Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, had this to say about the casting:

Vincent D'Onofrio cast as Kingpin in Daredevil series

10 June 2014 11:55 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joining Charlie Cox in Netflix's Daredevil series will be Law & Order's Vincent D'Onofrio in the role of villain Kingpin...

News

Despite some kerfuffle behind the scenes when Drew Goddard departed to pursue his Spider-Man Sinister Six interests, Netflix's Daredevil series isn't shaping up half bad, on the casting front at least. First of all Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox was picked to don the red suit, and now Law & Order: Criminal Intent's Vincent D'Onofrio will be wearing the massive white one in the role of cigar-chomping magnate villain, Kingpin.

Full Metal Jacket's D'Onofrio will be playing Wilson Fisk, the super-sized businessman who comes into conflict with blind lawyer Matt Murdock and his Daredevil alterego in New York's Hell's Kitchen.

The plan for the Netflix original series is for a thirteen-episode standalone Daredevil story, which will lead to similar for other Marvel heroes Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. »

Marvel and Netflix brings in Vincent D'Onofrio as 'Daredevil's' new Kingpin

10 June 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Marvel Studios and Netflix announced a new member of the upcoming cast of "Daredevil" and he'll make a fine Kingpin.   Vincent D'Onofrio, best known for his time on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," will play Wilton Fisk, a character Marvel describes as "a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen."  Fisk is better known to most fans of the "Daredevil" and "Amazing Spider-Man" comic books as the Kingpin.  The studio purposely did not refer to the character by his nickname which is an interesting choice for the series. The studio's Jeph Loeb noted, "We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining 'Marvel’s Daredevil' in such an integral role. Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero." D'Onofrio will square off against Charlie Cox who was recently announce »

Vincent D’Onofrio to Play The Kingpin in Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil Series

10 June 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Just weeks after casting Charlie Cox as the Man Without Fear in their upcoming 13-part Netflix series, Marvel have now found their Kingpin of Crime in the form of Law & Order and Jurassic World star Vincent D’Onofrio. The character is a key part of the Daredevil universe, so it’s fitting that he has now been cast.

The full press release can be read below, along with a description of the iconic villain and comments from Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb. Wilson Fisk was originally played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the original 2003 Twentieth Century Fox movie which starred Ben Affleck as Daredevil.

It’s fair to say that D’Onofrio looks the part, and seeing him face off against Boardwalk Empire and Stardust actor Charlie Cox will be very fun to see. There are still a lot of other very familiar characters who have yet to be cast, »

Vincent D'Onofrio Is Daredevil's New Kingpin

While most of the recent news about the Marvel / Netflix Daredevil series has been focused on show-runner Drew Goddard dropping out and Steven S. DeKnight stepping into his shoes, we have at least learned that Charlie Cox will be playing Matt Murdock in the show. Now we have an idea who one of his main opponents will be with the news that Vincent D’Onofrio has signed on to be The Kingpin.Also known as Wilson Fisk, the moneybags troublemaker is probably the best-known adversary for the Man Without Fear, and a natural choice for the show since he doesn’t require expensive effects to bring to life. “We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining Marvel’s Daredevil in such an integral role,” says Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television in a statement. “Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose »
