Exactly two weeks from today, Netflix will debut all 13 episodes of Marvel's Daredevil. While Marvel fans wait for Season 1 to stream in all it's glory, the studio has released a brief promo, which unfortunately doesn't contain any new footage. However, we do get a new snippet of dialogue, where Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock says, "We're gonna make a difference. I know sometimes it doesn't feel like it sometimes... but we are." Who could Matt Murdock be talking to? His law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson)? Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll)? We'll have to wait until April 10 to find out for sure.
Marvel's 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 supporting cast »

Either way, the Peacock network has decided not to move forward with its untitled comedy pilot starring Potter and exec-procuced by Ellen DeGeneres, TVLine has learned.

In the following exclusive video, Will tries to suss out which member of Intelligence has captured Jay’s heart: Erin, Nadia — they’re both hot, he notes — or “that desk sergeant from downstairs.” (We like your sense of humor, Will.)
His question is quickly answered when Jay introduces him to his colleague/ex, who is surprised to meet someone from his family.

I involuntarily groan whenever I hear the opening line of Whitney Houston’s “The Greatest Love of All” — you know, that whole “I believe the children are our future” bit — because, well, of course children are our future. Nobody’s arguing otherwise! I’ve gotten more meaningful bits of philosophy from an inspirational cat poster!

John Litvack, the experienced WB Network executive who helped teach J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, Greg Berlanti and others how to run television series, died March 21 at a long-term care facility in Los Angeles of complications following heart surgery. He was 69 and had been in failing health since undergoing triple-bypass surgery in January.
Litvack was considered an elder statesman during his 1997-2004 run as head of scheduling and current programming at the WB Network. Earlier in his career he’d held exec posts at CBS, NBC and Disney TV. He spoke to creatives from experience thanks to the time he spent time behind the camera as a director of soap operas in the 1970s and as a co-exec producer of “Hill Street Blues” in the NBC drama’s final season.
“He knew story,” said Jordan Levin, the former WB Network president who also worked with Litvack at Disney in the early 1990s. »

Premiering Sunday, April 5 at 10/9c, the Traffic-like thriller stars Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Sergeant Odelle Ballard, an American soldier who, in the midst of a Seal Team Six-like takedown of an Al Qaeda leader, stumbles across enormously volatile intel.

Following the motion poster that debuted last week, Marvel has released a new poster and photo from their highly-anticipated series Marvel's Daredevil. The poster gives us a good look at the first costume Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) wears, as he takes up the crime-fighting moniker Daredevil. Fans will also get to see that costume eventually evolve into the classic red costume with devil horns, which was briefly teased in last week's motion poster.
Charlie Cox is joined by a cast that includes Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsley), Scott Glenn (Stick), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), Vondie Curtis-Hall (Ben Urich) and Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley) in Marvel's Daredevil.

Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.
Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.
This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »
One Big Happy, NBC‘s latest sit-com effort, is set to have a great premiere just off the back of promotion by executive producer Ellen Degeneres. The real question is whether or not people are going to come back, and if it can expand its market beyond the viewers who are dedicated Ellen fans.
One of the best indicators of its success (or lack thereof) may be its lead-in, Undateable. The shows are well-paired, with not only much in common, but a similar comedic style. They are also shows that aren’t exactly the kind of efforts that will shoot out of the gates. They need to grow on you a bit before you come around to appreciating what a blast they are. That’s a tough road in today’s world, as Undateable fans can attest, since it wasn’t a sure thing it would be returning for a while. »

They grow up so fast.
I’ve worked on/created a number of characters in my writing career, trying to define them through my writing. They exist first in my head and then become incarnated through my words and stories and the depictions by the artists. In some ways, they are like my kids – my murderous, nasty kids.
In the movie Stranger Than Fiction (one of my Mary’s fave films and the most atypical Will Farrell movie ever), the writer of a novel finds that her lead character – who she was planning to kill off – is a real person and comes face to face with him. I don’t think I’d ever want to do that for the main reason that I tend to make the lives of my protagonists pretty miserable. If I’m their creator, I’m a pretty asshole god. I have very good reasons »

Former The Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider can breathe easy knowing that Pa Kent won't be featured, as far as we know, in the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The actor portrayed Clark Kent's adoptive father Jonathan on Smallville. Having some ownership over the iconic DC character, he doesn't mind saying his is the best version yet, and possibly ever.
John Schneider doesn't have a problem with Kevin Costner or his performance in Man of Steel. His problems lie within the writing of the character itself. Even though there is a long list of actors who have played Johnathan Kent throughout the years, John Schneider truly believes that the writers of Smallville were able to capture the true essence of the character better than anyone before or after. He explains:
"I love Kevin, I love what Kevin does. I didn't care for the fact that they wanted. »
Not only did 2013's Man Of Steel finish with a total box office gross of over $668 million, it also managed to successfully launch the DC Cinematic Universe, which will pick up again in 2016 with Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The cast features Henry Cavill (Immortals) and five-time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams (Enchanted) returning as Superman and Lois Lane respectively, Academy Award-winner Ben Affleck (Daredevil) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast Five) as Wonder Woman, and Jason Momoa (Game Of Thrones) as Aquaman, amongst others. While it was financially successful, Man Of Steel managed to be one of the more controversial CBMs in recent memory. While many fans loved and enjoyed it, an equal number of fans were left wanting and weren't as happy with some of the liberties director Zack Snyder took in the film and it looks like we can add Smallville's John Schneider to that long »
At the tail end of last month, it was announced that Helen Slater, who played Kara Zor-El in the 1984 Supergirl movie, and Dean Cain, who portrayed Superman in the 1990s TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, have joined the DC Comics adventure series Supergirl for CBS. At the time, their roles were being kept a secret. Now, it seems their characters have been revealed by IMDb.
According to the Internet Movie Database, which is not always accurate, Helen Slater will be playing Sylvia Danvers, while Dean Cain takes on the role of Fred Danvers. The married couple are Kara Danvers' (aka Kara Zor-El) foster parents, who take in the young girl after she flees Krypton before the destruction of her home planet. While this news has not been confirmed, it makes a lot of sense, and sounds like perfect stunt casting. It also falls in line with »
The actor has been widely tipped to be replacing Tom Hardy as Rick Flag Jr, who leads a team of super-villains on a government-mandated mission of redemption.
Earlier this week, Kinnaman told Screen Rant that he has been very impressed with director Ayer's vision for the comic book adaptation.
"I love the script. It's super entertaining and David Ayer is a really interesting director," he explained. "You know there's a lot of flashy directors who are good with the camera.
"When you get people who are from another aspect of filmmaking into a director's role, you're always very happy if it's a writer or an editor, because those are the storytellers, »
Late last month, former Superman and Supergirl Dean Cain and Helen Slater (from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and 1984’s Supergirl, respectively) joined the cast of CBS’ upcoming Supergirl series in top secret guest roles. Now, courtesy of Kryptonsite, their parts in the show may have been revealed.
The site has noticed that Cain and Slater are now listed as Fred and Sylvia Danvers, the foster parents of the titular Kryptonian, Kara Zor-El, on iMDB. Due to the fact that iMDB is reliably unreliable and can often come with casting lists made by fans, this news should be taken with a grain of salt. However, if you look at some casting history for old DC television shows, these roles certainly make sense.

Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce six supporting actors coming to Marvel's Daredevil, an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix April 10, including two who will play fan-favorite characters from the Daredevil comic series. From the comics, Rob Morgan (Person of Interest, Believe) will play Turk Barrett (a.k.a. Mauler), a smalltime criminal in Hell's Kitchen, while Matt Gerald (Avatar, Dexter) will play Melvin Potter (a.k.a. Gladiator), a machinist caught between a rock and a hard place.
Siding with Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) are Peter Shinkoda (Falling Skies, Hawaii Five-0) as Nobu, a Japanese businessman with an agenda all his own; Wai Ching Ho (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Blue Bloods) as Madame Gao, a powerful woman running her own trade; and Nikolai Nikolaeff (Camp, Sea Patrol) and Gideon Emery (Grimm, How to Train Your Dragon 2) as Vladimir and Anatoly, two Russian brothers looking to forge »
Fox’s remake of the classic Agatha Christie whodunit Murder on the Orient Express is picking up steam, now that Michael Green has been tapped to pen the script. The studio has been developing this redo since late 2013, when power trio Ridley Scott, Simon Kinberg and Mark Gordon all came aboard as producers. No director is yet attached to the pic, but Fox is understandably looking to attract a big name.
The story, one of the author’s most acclaimed to feature detective Hercule Poirot, was previously adapted for film by Sidney Lumet back in 1974. His take was rapturously received, racking up six Oscar nods and winning one (for Ingrid Bergman’s supporting performance). Albert Finney starred as Poirot, leading an all-star cast that included Bergman, Lauren Bacall, Jacqueline Bisset, Colin Blakely, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave and Michael York.
This remake has big shoes to fill, »
