It’s been a little while since Marvel dropped some info about Daredevil, their first Netflix series, but this weekend’s New York Comic Con gave fans a little something to chew on. First up is some official concept art by Joe Quesada, which is a beautiful and moody piece.
The panel also revealed that Rosario Dawson will play Claire Temple, a nurse that help Daredevil and was an early love interest of Luke Cage in the comics and the way she is describe in the show makes her sound a little bit like a version of Night Nurse. It was also revealed that Bob Gunton will play Leland Owlsley aka the Owl, Vondie Curtis-Hall will be reporter Ben Urich, and Ayelet Zurer (the best part of Man of Steel) as Vanessa, a romantic interest of the Kingpin.
Next up Marvel screened some footage, which unfortunately hasn’t not been released online, »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For actress Rosario Dawson jumped on board Marvel’s upcoming Daredevil Netflix series back in June, but the character that she’d be playing remained a mystery. This of course led to rampant fan speculation, pointing toward characters like Daredevil love interest and assassin Elektra, Jessica Jones (who’s getting her own Netflix series as well), and even more obscure heroes like White Tiger.
Well, the time for speculating is over, because Dawson’s role has finally been revealed. At the Nycc Daredevil panel this weekend, executive producer Jeph Loeb announced that Dawson will play an amalgam of two characters: Claire Temple and Night Nurse.
Claire Temple is the ex-wife of Bill Foster – the size-changing hero known as Goliath (who in turn has ties to Ant-Man‘s Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas) - and is a doctor who became romantically involved with Luke Cage. »

Now that Marvel has conquered the cineplex, the studio is looking to take over the small screen too. At New York Comic Con today, the studio offered an intriguing first look at its new Daredevil TV series, which is set to debut on Netflix next year with Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox as the blind lawyer/superhero. Here are the highlights: 1. Finding Daredevil was a snap. Two years ago, when 20th Century Fox still owned the cinematic rights to Daredevil, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb says he received a call from Marvel's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada declaring that he »

The biggest thing happening at New York Comic Con 2014 is the unveiling of Marvel's Daredevil Netflix Series. Marvel, working alongside the streaming service, has debuted the first photo from this highly anticipated small screen adaptation of the popular comic book, giving us our first look at Charlie Cox as blind lawyer Matt Murdock.
Marvel's Daredevil first costume is inspired by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s seminal Daredevil: Man Without Fear, a series that is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential Daredevil stories of all time. The image harkens back to the original art by John Romita Jr. that inspired the costume.
Also announced at the New York Comic Con panel were new cast additions Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), Vondie Curtis-Hall (Ben Urich), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsley) and Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley). It was also revealed that Rosario Dawson will be playing Claire Temple, »
Marvel's Daredevil debuted it's first footage and official photos at New York Comic Con earlier tonight, and we have a rundown of what was shown, following our debut of the images earlier today. We also have video interviews with the cast released by Marvel.
Right off the bat, it's clear that Marvel and Netflix are going with a more realistic and grounded approach, showing off a Daredevil costume inspired by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s seminal Daredevil: Man Without Fear. The footage presented to the crowd includes a very violent fight scene, which is a deviation from the cartoonish nature of the 2003 feature film. This, we suspect, will make some fans very happy.
At a panel during the New York Comic Con, Marvel brought the cast of the upcoming Daredevil show for Netfilx, in which they revealed new details and the first official image of the man without fear in costume. Come inside to learn more!
Netflix and Marvel's upcoming Daredevil series has been filming for a little bit now, and while we've seen some set pics, and know the cast, we've still be largely kept in the dark. Fans of the Man Without Fear have been anxious to see what the new version of the character will look like (since Ben Affleck's movie incarnation wasn't that well liked). Today, Marvel finally gave us a bone to work with in the form of a par of official images:

Marvel has taken to the stage at the New York Comic Con to reveal its upcoming Netflix series Daredevil, and following its conclusion two images have been released showing Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and his alter-ego in a Daredevil: Man Without Fear-inspired early prototype version of his costume. Check it out…
Nycc played host to a Daredevil panel moderated by Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb and featuring showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk / Kingpin) and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), along with new cast additions Toby Moore (Wesley, Fisk’s right hand man), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa, love interest to the Kingpin), Vondie Curtis-Hall (Ben Urich) and Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsley / The Owl). Absent from the panel was Rosario Dawson, although Loeb did reveal that she’s portraying Claire Temple, “a Nurse who works at Night. »

Coming soon: Rosario Dawson is ... Night Nurse! But also Claire Temple! Exciting, but confusing.Back in June, we found out Dawson had been cast in the upcoming Netflix original series Daredevil, and speculation abounded about what Marvel Comics character she'd be playing. At a Saturday afternoon New York Comic Con panel, we got an answer (and got to see some footage): She'll be playing a woman named Claire Temple. Now, that's the name of a long-unused Marvel character who was a love interest of superhero Luke Cage (soon to be the star of his own Marvel/Netflix series). But here's the exciting wrinkle: Marvel television head honcho Jeph Loeb introduced a clip of Dawson by saying Claire is a "nurse who works at night." That's a delightful little dog whistle for comics nerds, because he was obviously referencing Night Nurse, a mantle held by many characters throughout Marvel's publishing history. »

It's here! Marvel and Netflix have just debuted the very first look at their upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series, "Marvel's Daredevil"! The images, which you can check out below, are directly inspired by John Romita Jr.'s illustrations, famously featured in the Frank Miller miniseries "Daredevil: The Man Without Fear" (the original is also in the gallery below). Also announced at the New York Comic-Con panel are new cast members Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsely (better known as The Owl), Vondie Curtis Hall as reporter Ben Urich, and Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa, the woman who, in the comics, goes on to become Vanessa Fisk. They've also revealed that Rosario Dawson will be playing none other than Claire Temple, Marvel's Night Nurse! »
Before R-ratings, anti-heroes and gratuitous violence and nudity in mainstream Hollywood movies, there was the Hays Code. As a form of self-policing the industry, virtually every movie released up until 1968 needed that stamp of approval if it wanted distribution. And while it helped produce all of Old Hollywood’s true classics for several decades, it often included ridiculous rulings like not being able to show or flush a toilet on screen, not allowing married couples to be shown sleeping in the same bad or always making sure criminals, even protagonists of the movie, got punished in the end.
But before the Hays Code was nothing, and it was a gloriously weird, scandalous time for the movies. Certain Hollywood films in the early ’30s as “talkies” were rapidly taking hold have since been labeled “Pre-Code” films that never received Hollywood’s stamp of approval.

Hi James Gunn!
I just wanted to take a moment here and thank you for being so active on Facebook, Twitter and the internets, from talking about things you’re doing over the weekend to posting awesome fan art for Guardians of the Galaxy. Sometimes directors get too deep into a movie. When Spike Lee was making Oldboy, he didn’t even pay his poster designers, »
Marvel just announced that "Sin City" star Rosario Dawson is set to join the cast of the upcoming "Daredevil" TV series, which stars Charlie Cox as the title character. It's unclear what role she's play, but there's some speculation that it's Night Nurse. "Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood, so she was always at the top of our list for 'Marvel.s Daredevil,'" said Marvel. "Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock's journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil." "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 show's thirteen episodes will be available on Netflix in 2015. »
I must have been about 12 years old when I first saw Tarzan and His Mate. I loved the Tarzan movies. Tarzan was the undisputed King of the Jungle and was the greatest, Cheetah was man’s best friend, Boy was annoying, and Jane was the Queen of the Jungle and a young male’s introduction to the allure of the female. The uncensored version, with a naked Jane silhouetted while changing clothes in a backlit tent and the spectacular underwater ballet scene would have been a revelation to me; Tarzan and Jane are frolicking in their favorite swimming hole, Tarzan in his usual loincloth and Jane naked – not naked from the waste up, or presumed naked as they hid her behind some lake flora or rocks – Jane was naked.
