Daredevil Showrunner Talks Influences; Says Show Will Have ‘PG-16′ Rating

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel’s first show in their five-title deal with Netflix – Daredevil – is cranking up the marketing machine this week. Along with a gallery of new stills and a tantalizing motion poster, two of the creative forces behind the rebooted series have now divulged further info on the crime fightin’ lawyer.

Star of the show, Charlie Cox gave Empire Magazine his opinion on the series’ tone and how that may be a surprise to some viewers:

“This is more sinister, and that really suits the character. The hero and the villain… it’s a very blurry line. Let’s say that you didn’t know anything about Daredevil, hopefully you would feel a sense of ambiguity about who’s on the right path here. And, well, you know… we have blood.”

A bloodier, adult approach to the material will be welcomed by fans, after the mediocre 2003 feature film starring Ben Affleck. »

There’s No Alternative For Matt Murdock In Daredevil Motion Poster

26 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Specific details on Marvel’s forthcoming Netflix series, Daredevil, have been kept under a veil for some time now. However, the tide is beginning to turn on Matt Murdock’s small screen debut. Along with a crop of new images that arrived this morning, you can now delight in a brand new motion poster. Posted to the official Daredevil Twitter, it teases no alternative for the suave New Yorker:

The evil that crowds Hell’s Kitchen gives me no alternative. #Daredevil https://t.co/ChgqwuGiYY

Daredevil (@Daredevil) February 26, 2015

The short, sweet tease is a cheeky glimpse at Charlie Cox’s portrayal of the super hero lawyer. But as the show’s premiere date edges closer there’s one matter that needs resolving; where exactly will the series slot into Marvel’s gigantic universe?

Chronologically, it will follow on from the events depicted in The Avengers. “We are still part of the Marvel Universe, »

Get A Fleeting Look At The Kingpin In New Stills For Marvel’s Daredevil Series

26 February 2015 9:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that it is due to premiere in six weeks time, Marvel’s Daredevil is still a project shrouded in mystery. Up until this point, fans have been treated to a scintillating launch trailer that showcased Boardwalk Empire‘s Charlie Cox as the titular superhero, while several screenshots have found their way online that shed some light on his appearance.

But today, the studio has changed gears to focus on the show’s litany of side characters, who take center stage in these newly-released images debuted by Empire. Included in the gallery below, the stills feature Rosario Dawson, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and a fleeting look at Vincent D’Onofrio as overarching big bad, the Kingpin.

Much like its cinematic universe, Daredevil is teeing up several crossover events in the medium for Marvel, with Aka Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist laying the foundations for The Defenders showdown. »

Ben Hardy On For X-Men: Apocalypse

24 February 2015 5:22 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The ever-expanding X-Men cinematic universe now includes Walford. Don’t go expecting to see Magneto rock up and order a pint at the Queen Vic, though: Bryan Singer has EastEndersPeter Beale – better known as actor Ben Hardy – in talks for a mysterious key role in X-Men: Apocalypse. Unusually for the movie, the news didn’t come via Singer himself but from The Wrap’s sources, although they couldn't provide the actual part that Hardy will take. They did learn, however, that he tested for the film's take on Cyclops, a role that eventually went to Tye Sheridan, before being rumoured as Angel. But now it appears he’s won another key role.Set in the early 1980s, Apocalypse finds the First Class crew – James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult – joined by younger versions of Storm, Cyclops, Nightcrawler and Jean Grey, played by Alexandra Shipp, Sheridan, »

Top 12 really creepy ballet moments in film and TV

23 February 2015 9:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ballet adds a surreal, creepy quality to many films and tv shows. Here are 12 of the most unsettling...

Warning - This article contains spoilers for The Cabin In The Woods, The Twilight Zone, Black Swan and The Red Shoes.

Ballet is not natural. Dancers perform exhausting routines with legs and feet turned out to bizarre angles, arms held just to the point where they really start to hurt (that’s when you know you’re doing it right), backs bending to angles of 90° and more, limbs held stock still while balancing on their toes, in bodies mathematically maintained in a state that contains absolutely not an ounce of fat but can sustain two or three hours of jumping and running around.

And then the female dancers add to all this by putting their entire weight on the points of their toes, feet bruising and bleeding, nails cracking, and the male »

10 Films You Didn’t Realise Buffyverse Actors Were In

18 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

EuropaCorp

It has now been 11 years since the Buffyverse came to an end (as far as its television shows were concerned, at least). Buffy The Vampire Slayer saw its final episode aired in 2003, while Angel saw its last episode air one year later – and fans of the shows still miss them both to this day.

One of the key reasons behind the popularity of the two shows was undoubtedly the characters. A talented group of regular cast members and supporting actors brought to life some of the weirdest, wackiest, funniest and most interesting characters anybody could ever wish for in a television series and many of them have gone on to obtain further success in Hollywood (and some of them had actually already made their mark in the world of film).

TNT Gives The Librarians Another Season

14 February 2015 7:48 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

TNT’s The Librarians shot out of the gates, and how could it not, and the network has finally announced a renewal.

Considering the numbers, this isn’t exactly a surprise. According to their own statement, it was the #2 basic cable show of the year, so bringing it back probably isn’t anything that fans were worried about… except that it kept not happening.

It isn’t actually a long time since the first season ended, but by today’s standards, it has been a bit of an odd wait. The delay is perhaps a hint at some behind-the-scenes uncertainty over contracts and schedules, especially in the case of Noah Wyle, who both is and isn’t a regular feature of the show, and who has other shows to do.

At any rate, you can rest easy. And, look for your chance to catch the show, if you haven’t already, »

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Adds Drea de Matteo as a Villain

12 February 2015 9:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the return of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this March, the series has already added a new villain to face our heroes with Emmy-winning actress Drea de Matteo! Matteo will play Karla Faye Gideon, a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D. who joins forces with Skye's father, Cal. Here's what Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Marvel's Head of Marvel Television, had to say about the casting in a statement.

"We're thrilled to have Drea join us as yet another great villain to challenge our cast. We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role."

Matteo earned an Emmy for her role as Adriana La Cerva in The Sopranos, and since then has starred in series such as Sons of Anarchy, Desperate Housewives and Joey. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is Executive Produced by Joss Whedon (Marvel's The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer »

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Adds Key 'Inhumans' Character

5 February 2015 3:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The cast of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. just got a little more Inhuman with the addition of Luke Mitchell! Luke Mitchell will make his debut this season as a charismatic Inhuman named Lincoln, who has an important role to play in Skye understanding the true extent of her transformation. Here's what executive producer and Marvel's Head of Television Jeph Loeb had to say about the character in a statement.

"With the revelations surrounding Skye's true identity in the Winter Finale, we knew we'd be introducing more Inhumans as our story progressed. The charming energy Luke brings to the role that will make him a character to watch as we continue our season."

Known to American fans for his role as John Young in The Tomorrow People, Mitchell previously had roles on Home and Away, H2O: Just Add Water and Neighbours in his native Australia.

First Trailer For Marvel’s Daredevil Series Pulls No Punches

4 February 2015 6:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As promised, IGN has premiered the maiden full-length trailer for Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil series.

Starring Boardwalk Empire‘s Charlie Cox as the lawyer by day, crime-fighting superhero by night, the latest iteration of the character is due to arrive on the streaming service on April 10, when all thirteen of the hour-long episodes will be available to binge instantly.

At just over ninety seconds in length, our first look at Cox’s rendition of Matt Murdock is a tantalizing peak at what fans can expect in a few months time. It is for all intents and purposes an origin story, with a few shots showing the ways in which Murdock discovers superhuman senses after he was left blind as a child. Joining Cox for the show are Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, and Vincent D’Onofrio as big bad, The Kingpin.

Currently, Marvel and Netflix have agreed a deal »

Catch Your First Glimpse Of Netflix’s Daredevil Series Ahead Of Tomorrow’s Full Trailer

3 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of tomorrow’s full-length trailer, Marvel and Netflix have debuted the very first teaser for the upcoming Daredevil TV show, which introduces Charlie Cox as series protagonist Matt Murdock.

Much like the streaming services other heavy-hitters — House of Cards, Orange is the New Black — the hotly-anticipated show will debut all thirteen of its hour-long episodes simultaneously, teeing up the perfect marathoning opportunity to tide us all over to Marvel’s cinematic showdown in the summer.

Lawyer by day, crime-fighting superhero by night, Charlie Cox’s titular character has been through the wringer over the past few years largely thanks to Ben Affleck’s misjudged interpretation back in 2003. Now, almost twelve years later, Netflix’s TV show is poised to bring the persona back in a big way as Marvel looks to strengthen its presence in the small screen space, going up against the likes of The Flash and Arrow in the process. »

Joss Whedon On Life After Avengers: Age Of Ultron: “I Need To Do Something That I Create Myself”

3 February 2015 9:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For legions of TV and film fans, Joss Whedon is in a class of his own. Not only is he responsible for the legendary series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, he also wrote Toy Story, The Cabin In The Woods and delivered one of the best screen versions of Much Ado About Nothing ever made, during his 2012 summer vacation. But, it was his work for Marvel that cemented his status as creative icon, with writing and directing Marvel’s The Avengers – a box office blockbusting juggernaut that brought together the studio’s greatest heroes in live action for the first time – closely followed by the TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now that the second Avengers instalment – Avengers: Age Of Ultron – is almost upon us, the world awaits the news of where Whedon will now wander.

It is not just Whedon’s body of work that has gained him a devoted fan following, »

Complete Buffy reviews: Something Blue

29 January 2015 9:29 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

If you paid attention to your Gcse science – unlikely, I know – then you may remember all that jazz about magnets. In particular, the weird way in which two like-for-like magnet poles repel each other rather than attach.

Having just flicked through the Ladybird Guide To Science For Five-Year-Olds (I was always rubbish at science), I'm reminded of this notion when reviewing the Buffy and Angel episodes back to back. While Angel has generally gone all dark and broody, lately, quite a few of the episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer have gone the other way. We've had the brain-dead pointlessness of Beer Bad, the half Thanksgiving tutorial/half Buffy's Kitchen antics of Pangs, and now, along comes Something Blue, an episode that at times threatens to take tweeness to the max.

In a way, Buffy The Vampire Slayer's gradual leaning towards frothy storytelling makes sense. It's still a »

Complete Buffy reviews: Pangs

28 January 2015 11:54 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

We've had Christmas. We've had Halloween. Now it's the turn of the Thanksgiving special episode to take a seat in Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Pangs is the story in question – fans of both this series and Angel had a teaser of sorts in the concluding moments of the previous Angel episode, The Bachelor Party. Angel's friend, Doyle had one of those mind-cracking visions which paved the way for Buffy to make her first cameo appearance in the spin-off show. So what better opportunity to bring Angel temporarily back to Sunnydale?

"The mantra of “Want. Take. Have” doesn't belong in this season of Buffy, and Pangs explores this wistful notion in greater detail."

It's a common theme of this episode in that the characters are experiencing pangs for things or people that are far out of their reach. Buffy wants a nice normal family Thanksgiving, but can't have the real »

Complete Buffy reviews: The initiative

27 January 2015 12:45 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Initiative arguably marks a new phase of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Oz has left the building, casting off yet another of the early years remnants. Only Buffy, Xander, Willow and Giles remain – although James Marsters finally graduates to full-time member and reluctant hanger-on of the Scooby Gang. It's also the story where squeaky-clean curtain head Riley starts to fit into the puzzle. Which can only mean that the series reveals what all these mysterious Commandos are all about.

With the dawning of a new era, both in this season and of the whole show, it's mysterious that The Initiative episode is a bit flat. I guess that any episode which revolves around a bunch of dull army goons wouldn't ever score highly on my list of quintessential ways to spend 45 minutes with the telly. Army and sci-fi rarely go together well, resulting in lots of tedious gun battles and laughable machismo. »

16 late-arrival female TV characters we can't live without

22 January 2015 9:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paige in Charmed, Anya in Buffy, Fred in Angel… They weren’t there from the start, but these women were indispensable by the end...

Arriving fashionably late to the party is the speciality of these female TV characters. They’re not the Cousin Olivers or the Scrappy Doos of the television world, but the regulars and recurring roles who enter a show once it’s established and help it on its way to greatness. Their respective shows may not have known they needed them right at the start, but they soon proved themselves indispensable and much-loved parts of their TV universes.

From Paige Matthews to Winifred Burkle, Ro Laren and more then, let’s celebrate the women whose appearance in our favourite shows were better late than never...

When TV superheroes lose their powers

20 January 2015 10:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Buffy Summers, Nick Burkhardt, Barry Allen and more have discovered, losing your super-powers is a classic hero rite of passage…

This feature contains spoilers for Grimm season 3.

To have a superhero lose their powers at a certain point in their journey is a convention as old as time, a matter of when rather than if, and it's a given that every action-adventure genre story will include it at some point. There's a reason for that – stripping a hero of what makes him special is often the best way to develop them as a character rather than a symbol or an empty idea, but the ways in which TV shows, movies and comics do it has evolved over time.

At the end of Grimm's third season, Nick is tricked into giving up his powers when eternal thorn-in-his-side Adalind pretends to be Juliet in order to sleep with him. It's a »

In The Flesh: Inside the fan campaign to revive BBC Three's axed series

20 January 2015 3:43 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

In The Flesh fans had been fearing the worst for a while now, but on Friday (January 16), BBC Three finally broke its silence on the fate of the BAFTA-winning supernatural series, confirming that it would not be back for a third series.

Aficionados of Dominic Mitchell's drama are refusing to call it quits, however - swapping out their old #SaveInTheFlesh hashtag for a new mission statement, #RenewInTheFlesh.

These fans are calling on alternative outlets - including Amazon Prime Instant Video and Netflix - to step up and revive the series, just as they did with Ripper Street, Arrested Development and others.

Digital Spy spoke with the head of fan collective In The Fleshdom about the campaign and why the show deserves a Second Rising.

What is it about In The Flesh that inspires such passion in its fans?

"Firstly, it's a mistake to think In The Flesh is simply a zombie show. »
