Daredevil Series Will Not Make Mistakes the Movie Did

5 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Ben Affleck and Mark Steven Johnson's Daredevil movie doesn't get lot of love from the fans because it was kind of a terribly made film. Marvel knows this, so they aren't going to make the same mistakes this time around when developing their Netflix series. 

Marvel television executive Jeph Loeb was interviewed by Kfi Am 640, and during the interview he used the opportunity to comfort the fans of the comic who hated the movie saying:

"When we started talking to our actors and to our directors, this is with all due respect to the film, if you want to know what we're not doing, go watch the movie. If you want to know what we're doing, it's very much steeped in the world of the comics, but it also has a life of its own and that's really what television and our films really do is that we take the best. »

Marvel Says Daredevil TV Series Won't Make Same Mistakes As Ben Affleck's Movie

21 September 2014 2:34 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When Ben Affleck took the role of Batman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," he often spoke about his "Daredevil" movie, stating that it's one of the big negatives in his career. Marvel is now hard at work on a "Daredevil" Netflix TV series and promises that it won't make the same mistakes the movie made. "When we started talking to our actors and to our directors, this is with all due respect to the film, if you want to know what we're not doing, go watch the movie," said Marvel's Jeph Loeb. "If you want to know what we're doing, it's very much steeped in the world of the comics, but it also has a life of its own.

Netflix's "Daredevil" Won't Repeat Mistakes

21 September 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Fans worried the upcoming "Daredevil" TV series on Netflix will turn out to be as bad as the previous 2003 "Daredevil" film shouldn't worry says Marvel television executive Jeph Loeb.

Speaking on Kfi Am 640 (via Cbm), Loeb says the series has no plans to make the same mistakes as the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner-led film which was critically derided upon its release:

"When we started talking to our actors and to our directors, this is with all due respect to the film, if you want to know what we're not doing, go watch the movie.

If you want to know what we're doing, it's very much steeped in the world of the comics, but it also has a life of its own and that's really what television and our films really do is that we take the best....We hope and we're very confident that this is the beginning »

X-Men Spinoff Deadpool Set for February 2016 Release—Will Ryan Reynolds Reprise His Role?

19 September 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Deadpool isn't dead after all. The long rumored X-Men spinoff has been given a release date of Feb. 12, 2016. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news Thursday. It's likely that Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role, although no deal is set. Tim Miller will direct the Marvel Comics movie. Reynolds played human Wade Wilson in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine (co-starring Hugh Jackman), while actor Scott Adkins played Deadpool after Wilson was transformed into a fast-healing mercenary. The talkative and humorous anti-hero first appeared in Marvel Comics' New Mutants #98 (Feb. 1991) Twentieth Century Fox hired Miller in 2011. He's done visual effects for X-Men, X-Men 2 and Daredevil. »

Obscure comic book movies that nearly got the greenlight

19 September 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We have a look at some of the more obscure comic book movie ideas which nearly made it to the big screen…

We've recently been investigating the pile of nearly-made-its in the ever-growing world of cinematic comic book adaptations. You could be forgiven for thinking Hollywood will strap wads of cash to any old comic book writer who stumbles past their door, but so far we’ve written approximately 5,000 words that say otherwise.

First, we delved into DC’s chequered past and found heaps of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman projects that we’ll sadly never get to see (and some other projects we’re quite glad we’ll never have to sit through). We then did the same for Marvel, unearthing plans for a Paul McCartney Silver Surfer rock opera, James Cameron’s bizarre Spider-Man script ideas and an amazingly-cast Dazzler animation from the 1980s.

Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel And Brit Marling To Audition For True Detective Season 2

16 September 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wrap has word of seven actresses who are trying out for a major role on True Detective this week. According to an exclusive report from writer Jeff Sneider, those auditioning for the HBO drama include: Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel, Brit Marling and Malin Akerman. Rounding out this list of potential tryouts include the lesser-known Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones) and Kelly Reilly (Flight).

According to Sneider, these actors will be reading for Nic Pizzolatto, the creator and screenwriter of True Detective. Sneider says that Dawson is a favourite, aided by a stellar recent track record working on Danny Boyle’s Trance, Chris Rock’s Tiff favorite Top Five and Netflix’s Daredevil series. Meanwhile, being a Puerto Rican actor in a show that takes place in California (and where all of the other rumored stars are white) could be an advantage over the other choices, »

'True Detective' Season 2 Female Lead Shortlist Unveiled

16 September 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams are said to still be in the running for the female lead in Season 2 of True Detective, creator Nic Pizzolatto and HBO are having a difficult time finding just the right actress to take on the part, and are holding another round of auditions, which includes 7 other actresses, a few more well known than the others.

The network needs to make a decision soon as True Detective gears up for production and a 2015 return date. The Wrap has learned who has been invited back to read for the coveted role this week, though HBO has no comment on the casting as of yet.

While Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams both looked like the two top contenders, it's become clear that the role is still up for grabs, and could go to anyone at this point in time.

"Daredevil" TV Series Updates

15 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

The currently shooting Marvel Studios' "Daredevil" TV series, has cast a well-known actor to Marvel Comics' blind 'sensei' who trained 'Matt Murdock' to become the superhero 'Daredevil':

Actor Scott Glenn will play 'Stick', a character created by Frank Miller, as the leader of a group of martial artists called the 'Chaste', the deadly rivals of demonic ninja clan the 'Hand'.

In the comics, Stick has the abilities of radar sense, acute hearing, taste, touch, smell, telepathy,and the ability to drain life energy from another person. 

Stick also trained Daredevil's lover 'Elektra'.

"Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock's life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero's journey," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. 

"There are few actors who could bring the authenticity, gravitas and charisma to such »

Scott Glenn Joins Marvel’s Daredevil As Stick

15 September 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In another move that shows how much inspiration the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series will draw from Frank Miller’s run in the comics, Marvel has cast Scott Glenn (The Hunt for Red October, Silence of the Lambs) as Stick, the mysterious martial artist famous for training both Elektra and the titular Man Without Fear.

Stick was created by Miller in 1981, where he’s depicted as a blind master martial artist who not only teaches a young Matt Murdock how to fight, but how to control his senses and develop his “radar sense.” Stick is also revealed to be the leader of a warrior order called The Chaste that regularly fought with a mercenary group known as The Hand.

Stick was last played by Terence Stamp in the terrible 2005 film Elektra from 20th Century Fox. The studio heads at Marvel must have erased that casting from their minds, however, as the »

Marvel's Daredevil Will Be a "Grounded, Gritty" Series

15 September 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Marvel Studios is planning on revealing lots of new details about their upcoming Daredevil series at New York Comic Con next month, but showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight already shared a few things about it with Paste Magazine. In a recentinterview he offers a little tease of their vision for the man without fear.

"With this version of Daredevil we wanted it to be grounded, gritty, as realistic as we could portray. That naturally fits in with the Daredevil character. Matt Murdock, on a regular basis, would get the shit beat out of him. That's one thing that makes him a great character. He's not super strong. He's not invulnerable. In every aspect, he's a man that's just pushed himself to the limits, he just has senses that are better than a normal humans. He is human. The other thing that really drew me to this character is that he's one »

"Daredevil" Showrunner Talks His Gritty Hero

12 September 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Unsurprisingly, Netflix's "Daredevil" series is set to be a darker and more grounded than a network comic book show ala "Marvel's Agents of Shield". Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight has now given an extensive interview with Paste Magazine about the new series, how it is progressing, and what take he's bringing to the material:

"With this version of Daredevil, we wanted it to be grounded, gritty, as realistic as we could portray. That naturally fits in with the Daredevil character. Matt Murdock, on a regular basis, would get the s--t beat out of him.

That's one thing that makes him a great character. He's not super strong. He's not invulnerable. In every aspect, he's a man that's just pushed himself to the limits, he just has senses that are better than a normal humans. He is human.

'Daredevil' Netflix Series Will Be Realistic, Dark and Gritty

12 September 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The fall TV season is about to get under way in just a few short weeks, but, for many Marvel fans, the show they're eagerly awaiting won't debut until next year. Marvel and Netflix joined forces to produce Marvel's Daredevil, the first of four shows along with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage that will culminate with the mini-series The Defenders.

Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight is serving as the showrunner and executive producer on Marvel's Daredevil, revealing in a new interview that the show will be as grounded, gritty and realistic as possible.

"With this version of Daredevil, we wanted it to be grounded, gritty, as realistic as we could portray. That naturally fits in with the Daredevil character.

The Streets of NYC, Bernie Goetz, and Frank Miller

7 September 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Rrmbllll Kkkkrrakkk goes the lightning as Frank Miller’s Batman hits the streets for the first time in 1986’s seminal The Dark Knight Returns. A faceless, lowlife pimp throws one of his girls into a cab, threatening to cut her. The bearded, downtrodden cabbie accepts a stack of bills from the pimp; he mutters to himself, “dog eat dog world…” Unseen, Batman descends onto the yellow, checkered cab’s roof. The pimp finds himself on the receiving end of some brutality off-panel. The money is shredded. And with another Krakk – end scene.

This hardly feels like pages ripped from a William Gibson novel, more like frames from a grainy, 35-mm Taxi Driver print. The synopsis for Tdkr returns dubs itself “near-future”, and the genre “cyber-punk” has been tossed around by readers and critics alike. But really (mutant punks aside) the book falls into the Death Wish genre. Aging man, urban and moral decay, »

Death of Wolverine #1 Hits All the Expected Beats

5 September 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Written by Charles Soule

Pencils by Steve McNiven. Inks by Jay Leisten

Colors by Justin Ponsor. Letters by Chris Eliopoulos

Standard Cover by McNiven, Leisten & Ponsor

Published by Marvel Comics.

Death of Wolverine #1 is the culmination of a storyline begun by Paul Cornell in which Wolverine lost his mutant healing factor, and the first issue of a four part weekly series which promises to kill off everyone’s favorite Canadian mutant with adamantium claws. Of course, only the most casual of comic book readers expect that death to stick: Wolverine is a cash cow character for Marvel Comics, star of several blockbuster films, and the company has gone down this road before, killing off such stalwart characters as Captain America and Human Torch only to see them returned to life (and the pages of comic books and screens of your local theater) in due time.

Of course, as in any story, »
