While Phase Three won’t kick off until the release of Captain America: Civil War in the spring, we will be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe later this year as Netflix ventures back into Hell’s Kitchen for its second Marvel series Jessica Jones.

During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb has offered up a few words on the new series, which sees Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) starring as the eponymous superhero-turned-private eye, and former Doctor Who star David Tennant as the main villain Kilgrave, a.k.a. The Purple Man.

'Sense8' Renewed for Season 2 on Netflix

8 August 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! Sense8 has been renewed for Season 2 on Netflix. The cast of this sci-fi thriller jumped on Twitter this morning to make the announcement with a special 'birthday' video. The show comes from J. Michael Straczynski, working alongside the 'Wachowski Starship', other wise known as The Matrix trilogy creators Andy Wachowski and his brother-turned-sister Lana Wachowski.

The fate of the series was looking quite uncertain. Some fans had abandoned the series early, not finishing all of the episodes. But those who stuck through to the end were rewarded with one of the greatest modern sci-fi shows ever attempted. And that buzz slowly but surely brought back viewers who'd left, or those who simply weren't interested in it in the first place. Sense8 is considered a success for the 'Wachowski Starship'. They have had a string of commercial bombs at the box office over the past few years, including 2008's Speed Racer, »

13 Upcoming Netflix Original Shows To Be Excited About

28 July 2015 2:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios/Netflix

Netflix used to be the home of films of varying quality, ranging from classic to cult to just plain awful, and the place to catch-up on all the shows you’re supposed to have seen but never got around to.

While it is still that, and you can lose yourself for hours binging on Breaking Bad, the streaming service has over the past couple of years made a big push to produce more original content.

The likes of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are the two biggest success stories, earning critical acclaim and challenging network and cable shows when it comes to awards season. The Netflix model, dumping all episodes onto its website at once for immediate mass consumption, has totally changed the way people watch TV.

2015 has seen that trend continue, with a string of hit new shows including Sense8, from creators »

Following on from the first official images which arrived online over the weekend [see here], we’ve now got some new set photos from Marvel’s currently in production Netflix series Jessica Jones, which feature Krysten Ritter’s title character alongside Mike Colter’s Luke Cage

Meanwhile, Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb has taken part in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, during which he discussed Marvel’s Netflix slate:

On Jessica Jones: “I think people knew, as soon as we announced Jessica Jones, Jessica Jones was based on a much more adult comic. The source material came that way. She has real problems with a number of things that she abuses! And we’re not shying away from that. There’s no tidying her up. And Krysten Ritter is killing it. And when people get a hold of what David Tennant is doing as Killgrave… There’s going to »

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

New Us sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows for 2016

15 July 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...

The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.

So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.

Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.
