For those who've now had the chance to finish all of the first season run of Marvel's "Daredevil" on Netflix, show runner Steven S. DeKnight has now spoken in detail about some spoiler-related questions that fans have had regarding various topics brought up in the series.
DeKnight is opting out as show runner for the second season due to a prior commitment, but is open to coming back for a potential third season should it happen. In a long interview with THR, he touched upon various topics regarding the show including the suit design, the death of a key character, and tie-ins with other Marvel/Netflix shows in the works.

The mask's length was changed to cover right down to the base of Charlie Cox's nose - "We discovered when we were trying to design it that if you didn't bring it all the way down, »

I was a fan of the Star Wars expanded universe. I got as excited for getting new Star Wars galleys as I did getting a new China Mieville, George R.R. Martin, or Steven Erikson Arc, and Timothy Zahn’s core 5 books in the EU, the Thrawn Trilogy and following duology, are among my favorite chapters of Star Wars history Period from any medium. Even the most enthusiastic fan of Star Wars and the work Del Rey has done with the license, however, will admit there have been lows to go along with highs, many of them seem universally agreed upon, and many others are personal gems or dislikes that make the conversation that much more interesting. I think it helpful to know where people stand or stood on former works, so with that in mind, along with the Zahn contributions, I really enjoyed what Karen Traviss accomplished with Stormtroopers, I »

Marvel has managed to completely reinvigorate the superhero movie in a massive way. It all began with 2008’s Iron Man and then spread out to the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, culminating in the release of 2012’s The Avengers. But since then, Marvel hasn’t been content to just focus on the big league superheroes.
Rather, with Phase Two, they’ve started to branch out a little bit more. Not only have there been wild card characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy but Marvel even expanded out into television with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now comes the release of Daredevil, a Marvel-produced series airing exclusively on Netflix: a new move that promises to revolutionize the superhero genre yet again.

The penultimate episode of Daredevil's exemplary first season leaves us with more questions and corpses. Here are James' viewing notes...
With the whole series of Daredevil now available on Netflix, the race is on to reach the ending before someone spoils it for you. But that presents us with a problem. How do we approach reviews? It's not much use speculating about the future of the series when it's available at a moment's notice, but watching the whole thing in one go for a single review is impractical for anyone with a day job and personal relationships to maintain – to say nothing of how difficult it is to critically appraise 12 hours of television if you don't savour the instalments properly.
That's why, instead of traditional reviews, we're trying something new. An episode-by-episode unpicking of the show, looking at its techniques, characters and use of the source material. Call them annotations, »
After his version of DC’s Aquaman was seen around the globe last week, Jason Momoa has been able to open up about his role in the expanding DC Cinematic Universe, and what part the King of Atlantis will play in that, as well as next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly whilst promoting his new series The Red Road, Momoa spoke about how the water-based hero fits into Zack Snyder plans’s, and just how big his role is opposite Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, Henry Cavill’s Man on Steel and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in the 2016 release.
“It’s Batman and Superman,” he says. “It’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there… Justice League is still quite a ways away. »

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis didn’t just introduce the world to the New 52 version of Aquaman. It also gave us the first appearance of Superman’s Hammer of Justice, Steel. If you got up to use the restroom or checked your cell phone at the wrong time, you might have missed what could become a defining moment in the new DC Animated Universe.
In what amounted to under a minute of screen time, John Henry Irons wields a large hammer on what appears to be a construction site. Wearing a yellow hardhat, he defends his co-workers from an army of Atlantian attackers. Just as he is about to be overcome by his assailants, Superman swoops down and saves him. We are witnesses to the defining moment when the seeds of a new super hero are planted – Steel.
