If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is a weekly column about superhero movie news, rumors analysis and speculation.
This Week: If you've finished Jessica Jones like I have, it's time to step back and realize what just happened within the Marvel Universe. That and developments on Luke Cage and Doctor Strange make what Jones pulled off more unique.
It’s been two years since Marvel and Netflix made a deal to bring four series and The Defenders to the streaming service. At the time, we were still warming to the idea that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was technically part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the idea that four more heroes would be thrown into the mix on top of Marvel’s second and third phases seemed like an amazing expansion of the shared universe.
Do you still feel that way after watching Jessica Jones?

It's confirmed! We now have all the information on the cast and characters of Marvel's Doctor Strange.
While we knew that Benedict Cumberbatch had the lead role, we can now (officially) anticipate the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Mads Mikkelsen joining him.
The film will follow neurosurgeon Stephen Strange who, after a terrifying car accident, has access to mystical worlds and other dimensions. This will be the first time that the Marvel Universe enters the realm of mysticism, making Doctor Strange an extra exciting entry into their slate of films.
Production has begun on the film and, while it hasn't been officially confirmed, we do have an idea of which characters these actors will be portraying. It has been speculated that McAdams will be playing Night Nurse Christine Palmer, Ejiofor will be Baron Mordo, Stuhlbarg will be Nicodemus West, and Swinton will be The Ancient One. »

Jessica Jones' second episode shows us a proper fight and Kilgrave in action. Here are James' viewing notes to Aka Crush Syndrome...
Marvel's Jessica Jones is available to view now on Netflix, and as with Daredevil we'll be providing (mostly) daily episode-by-episode coverage for those who want to follow it with us. Each instalment of these viewing notes will look at how the show's plot, characters and story relate to the comic source material, providing background information and pointers for those who want to know more.
Please note that while we might occasionally reveal the way plots developed in the comics, we are trying to be sensitive to any surprises the TV show may have in store. These notes are written immediately after the episode is watched, so any speculation about the way the story may go is purely that!
All we ask is that if »
In just a few short days, the second of Netflix's superhero shows, Marvel's Jessica Jones, will debut, following the successful launch of Marvel's Daredevil earlier this year. The streaming service hasn't announced a premiere date for Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil, but we know production is already under way. Earlier today, the official Daredevil Twitter account released a cryptic trailer for the upcoming season, which could tease that Luke Cage (Mike Colter) may be making his presence known to Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and his team, in an unusual way. The trailer doesn't feature any stars of the show, but it does tease that Matt's Hell's Kitchen hangout has had a change of ownership.
In the first season of Daredevil, Josie's was a local Hell's Kitchen bar that both Matt and his law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) would frequent, along with Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll). During Karen's first trip to Josie's, »
Filming is well underway on Marvel Studios’ Phase Three entry Doctor Strange, but the cast is still been finalised with The Wrap revealing two new additions to the already stellar cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelson, and Michael Stuhlbarg. The publication reports that Amy Landecker (t.v. show Transparent) and martial artist Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2) have signed for as yet undisclosed roles. While we can only speculate at this stage, it would be a good bet to say Landecker might be play Clea, love interest to Cumberbatch’s Master of the Mystic Arts. When McAdams was cast, popular theory was that she would be playing Clea, but persistent rumours suggest she will be playing healer to the super heroes Night Nurse. Adkins, on the other hand, is a much more exciting addition. He is an absolutely gifted martial artist, and its »

Just two days after Amy Landecker signed on for a mystery role in Doctor Strange, the Marvel adventure has brought on another new cast member. The Wrap reports that Scott Adkins has joined the cast in an unspecified role. The actor is best known for his martial arts expertise, and sources claim that the actor will have numerous major action scenes featuring hand-to-hand combat. We don't know for sure if this character will be fighting Doctor Strange himself, but hopefully we'll get more details as production continues.
Regardless of who he's playing, Scott Adkins joins a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Michael Stuhlbarg as Nicodemus West and Rachel McAdams as the female lead. Rachel McAdams has been rumored to be playing Night Nurse, but that has not been confirmed. It isn't known how many other main »
Last week, production started on Marvel's second Phase Three adventure Doctor Strange in Nepal. While several of the main cast members have already been announced, The Wrap reports that Transparent actress Amy Landecker has signed on for a mysterious role. It isn't known if she has already started filming in Nepal, or how large a role she may have in the production.
Regardless of who she is playing, Amy Landecker joins a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo and Michael Stuhlbarg as Nicodemus West. Rachel McAdams has been confirmed as the female lead, who has been rumored to be the Night Nurse. Marvel hasn't released an official synopsis yet, but producer Kevin Feige did confirm that the Doctor's origin story will be told, after rumors surfaced that the movie would open with Strange established as the Sorcerer Supreme. »
I’m starting to hear enough things about Doctor Strange now that it has begun filming that makes me think I know what Infinity Stone is going to pop up in Doctor Strange, the Marvel movie that I thought would have the Soul Gem in it. Instead, I think Doctor Strange is going to get to play around with time.
This is going to be a mix of speculation and things that could be reportable otherwise, but we’re going to withhold until we firm some things up. Just putting that out there right at the start: some of this is me speculating around some things I know happen in the movie and some of these things are going to be shot for sure once Doctor Strange starts getting deeper into production.
Earlier this week, we showed you the first set photos from Marvel's highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure Doctor Strange, which is currently shooting in Nepal. Yesterday we got a better look at the bearded Benedict Cumberbatch on the set as he was photographed walking through the streets of Kathmandu. Today, Dutourdumonde Photography has captured the first video from the set, which gives us another look at Benedict Cumberbatch, and also teases a mysterious hooded figure.
The video appears to be taken from the same set as the previous photos, with the actor seen walking through a crowded street, thumbing through a book of some sort. We also see a hooded figure whose face is obscured, and from the way the video was cut together, it isn't known if this mystery character is following Dr. Stephen Strange, or if he is important to the story. We also get a few brief glimpses of director Scott Derrickson, »
In just 15 short days, Netflix will unveil Marvel's Jessica Jones, the second of four TV shows set in the Hell's Kitchen area of New York City. To help pass the time, Netflix has released 30 photos from this highly-anticipated series, which give us a fresh look at the title character (Krysten Ritter) along with Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), Jeryn Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss), Malcolm (Eka Darville), Kilgrave (David Tennant), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Will Simpson (Wil Traval). Unfortunately these photos don't reveal too much regarding the plot. Hopefully we'll learn more as the countdown continues.
Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of Ptsd, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as »
Seeing Marvel Studios tackle the magical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Soctt Derrickson’s (Sinister) Doctor Strange has the probably the most impressive cast of the studios’ output to date. First off, Benedict Cumberbatch is putting on the red cape as the titular Sorcerer Supreme (with Joaquin Phoenix originally in line for the role) , Tilda Swinton will be playing his mentor in the mystical arts, The Ancient One, and Chiwetel Ejiofor has signed on as fellow student/eventual nemesis Baron Mordo. On top of that, Mad Mikkelsen is onboard in an unknown role (though I’ve a good feeling he’s the voice of demon Dormannu), and its rumoured Rachel McAdams may be playing healer to the superheroes, Night Nurse (not to be confused with Rosario Dawson’s role in the Marvel Netflix shows, which is another version of the same character). Now, The Wrap are reporting that the »

With almost a year until its release, Doctor Strange has already built an all star cast featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as the eponymous hero, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, and Rachel McAdams reportedly playing an iteration of Night Nurse. As the movie inches closer to production, another actor is close to joining the project. Steve Jobs'' Michael Stuhlbarg is being looked at for a key role in Marvel’s magical 2016 entry. Stuhlbarg is currently in negotiations to join the Sorcerer Supreme’s solo movie, which begins shooting next month in London. THR was the first to break the news, but shortly afterwards, Variety reported that Stuhlbarg is going play Nicodemus West, a "rival scientist of Strange." Assuming that this character report is later verified by Marvel, this is a possible indicator that his adversarial relationship with Strange in later years »
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Stuhlbarg (who can currently be seen opposite Michael Fassbender in Jobs) is the latest addition to the cast of Doctor Strange. He joins Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Mads Mikkelsen. The trade mentions the Hannibal star as being part of the cast, so he's presumably now officially signed up for a role. Going back to Stuhlbarg, and while the site doesn't have any word on who he's playing, Variety does. Apparently, the Boardwalk Empire actor has been cast as Nicodemus West. They describe him as a rival scientist, but comic book fans will know him better as the big bad of Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin's Doctor Strange: The Oath. He's the one who operated on Strange's hands after his accident and also received training from The Ancient One. With McAdams rumoured to be paying Night Nurse, it's »
Last week, Marvel and Netflix unveiled the new trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones, which already has fans buzzing in anticipation for the November 20 debut of Season 1. We know that Jessica Jones will feature Mike Colter as Luke Cage, before his own series debuts on the streaming service sometime next year. Today, we have word that Daredevil himself will also be stopping by Jessica Jones' private office. Here's what Collider Heroes host Jon Schnepp had to say about the Man Without Fear making an appearance on Marvel's Jessica Jones.
With a release date set for 2017, Warner Bros. are slowly bringing together their voice cast for The Lego Batman Movie, and a very impressive one it is too. Of course, Will Arnett will be reprising his role from The Lego Movie, joined by Michael Cera as Robin and Zach Galifinakis as The Joker. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed another member of the Bat-family will be coming to the big screen, with Rosario Dawson signing on to be the voice of Batgirl. This marks the fourth comic book role for the actress, after Sin City, her recurring role as Night Nurse in Netflix’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, and lending her voice to several of DC Comics’ direct to DVD animated movies. On top of that, she’s just a fantastic actress, and I’m incredibly excited to see how this voice cast works together. Directed by The Lego Movie »

Up until now, pretty much everyone has assumed that Rachel McAdams (True Detective) will be playing Clea in Doctor Strange, but it sounds like Marvel will be heading in a slightly more surprising direction.
According to a new report, the actress has actually been cast as Christine Palmer/Night Nurse. There have been a few different versions of this character in the comic books, though this one is by far the most obscure, as she’s only made a handful of very brief appearances over the years. The better known version is Linda Carter, a Night Nurse who took on a starring role in Brian K. Vaughan’s Doctor Strange: The Oath and became a love interest for the Sorcerer Supreme.
Linda ran a secret underground clinic catering to New York’s injured superheroes, while Christine was a surgical assistant (bear in mind that Stephen was a surgeon before »

Last month it was confirmed that Rachel McAdams (True Detective) is set to appear as the female lead in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, and while her role is being kept under wraps, there was speculation suggesting that she’d be playing Clea, love interest to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme.
Well, not so according to Latino-Review, with the site claiming that McAdams is instead portraying Christine Palmer, one of the character’s from Marvel’s Night Nurse comic book series. Palmer is a surgical assistant, so it would certainly make sense given that Stephen Strange starts out as a surgeon before taking on the mantle of Doctor Strange.
Now, it had been thought that Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple from Daredevil and Jessica Jones would be Night Nurse, but last year Daredevil season one showrunner Steven S. DeKnight was quoted as stating that:
“The original Night Nurse that we were talking about, »

As Marvel’s Doctor Strange gears up for a fall shoot with Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and director Scott Derrickson, some big questions remain. Such as: Who is female lead Rachel McAdams playing in the movie? Early speculation was that she had taken the role of Clea, a love interest of Strange’s in the comics, but now a new rumor claims […]
