By the time Daredevil hits Netflix next year, it will have been 12 years since the release of the movie which starred Ben Affleck, Colin Farrell, and Jennifer Garner. However, just as it appears as if Elektra won't be in the series to avoid any similarites to the movie, neither will Bullseye! It's possible that he could make a surprise appearance in a later episode of course, but if this means that the focus will be on other villains (Stilt Man! Gladiator! Purple Man!) it may make a refeshing change to leave him on the shelf until season two. How do you guys feel about this? No one. Rt @cameronstear: Who's going to be playing Bullseye in the Marvel Netflix Daredevil? Please reply or give me a hint Steven? — Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) October 31, 2014 »

It doesn't happen often, but sometimes a blockbuster will pick up a charitable cause, and I'm glad it's happening with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film has become part of the "Save the Bats" campaign, and the production has released a video where director Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck and Amy Adams explain why it's so important to keep these creatures (which I've been told aren't bugs) as part of our ecosystem. I don't disagree with that, and I'm glad that Batman v Superman will bring a great amount of attention to this cause; I hope other blockbusters follow suit with their own projects. That all being said, if a bat flew into my home, I would run away screaming. The bat would be the new owner of my apartment. Hit the jump to check out the video, which contains plenty of fun bat-facts, and head over to savebats. »

Christian Bale's Batman voice was loved by some fans and hated by many others, and if you were expecting Ben Affleck's take on the iconic DC Comics character to drop that, think again! Jennifer Garner's comments in the latest issue of Empire Magazine reveal she's heard her husband's take on the Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and based on her description, it doesn't sound all that different to The Dark Knight Trilogy's! "We were not privy to the Batman voice at home, but I've been on set enough to hear bits of it. It's spot on. Growly and decisive and sexy, if I do say so myself! Exactly what you would hope it to be!" It sounds like fans won't be disappointed then, but they were when Elektra was brought to the big screen in both Daredevil and her own movie. »

Before he began work on Marvel's Netflix series "Daredevil," British actor Charlie Cox took on a role in the upcoming Stephen Hawking biopic "The Theory of Everything". Attending that film's premiere this week, Cox spoke to Heat Vision about his "Daredevil" role and the reaction he's received so far:
"It's great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility. I wasn't really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to [New York] Comic Con last week, and it's really important to a lot of people. It really is. I'm having a great time."
So far we've only seen Cox's Matt Murdock character in his civilian clothes and a ninja-style stealth suit which serves as an early version of his costume before he slips on a more familiar outfit. It certainly sounds like Frank Miller's stories will »

Further proving that we are living through the biggest week for superhero-movie news since last week and the week before, Warner Bros. just announced one of the most hilariously aggressive franchise-extension plans in movie history. Between now and 2020, WB plans to release a whopping 13 movies based on DC comic book characters–including two Justice League movies, the long-awaited Wonder Woman film, a movie starring the popular Lego™ Batman character and a movie starring the somewhat less popular Affleck™ Batman character. Now, it's hard to know where this fits into the glorious history of Superhero Franchise announcements. Is this the second »

Captain America 3 is set to kick off the Marvel Civil War on the big screen. But what is it, and what does it mean for the McU?
One section of this article discusses heavy spoilers for the Civil War comic. We've marked that section, but we discuss storylines throughout the piece.
It was one year back that we took a look a look at why Marvel's 2007 comic book arc, Civil War, was ripe for the big screen treatment. You can find the original piece here. Now, with the news breaking yesterday that Tony Stark would be suiting up alongside/against Steve Rogers in Captain America 3, it seems Kevin Feige has, er, had the same idea over at Marvel Studios HQ. Clearly that was down »
While it might have the bigger cultural cache, the San Diego Comic-Con isn’t the only annual con to dish out news on exciting new projects. The New York Comic-Con this past weekend has seen its fair share of big announcements. From the first footage reveal of Marvel’s upcoming animated Guardians Of The Galaxy series, to their unveiling of the new Daredevil costume – it’s been an exciting weekend for comic hounds.
Today we’ve learned that following its Nycc debut, new comic book series Wytches has also been snatched up. New Regency has acquired the title for Plan B to develop and produce into a full-length feature. The title has an air of the supernatural about it, and the synopsis doesn’t disappoint:
Wytches follows Charles Rooks, a loving father who moves his family to a neighboring town in an attempt to help their teenage daughter Sailor recover »

Director: Danny Cannon
Writer: Bruno Heller
Synopsis: A new recruit in Captain Sarah Essen’s Gotham City Police Department, Detective James Gordon is paired with Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham’s highest-profile cases: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne.
Verdict: After 75 years worth of Comic Books, 10 different animated shows, 8 big screen movies and 5 faces of Batman…it’s fair to say that Gotham had it’s fair share of anticipation. When it was first announced that a live action television series chronicling the early years of Gotham City was in development, the news was met with an equal amount of criticism and curiosity. After the CW’s Smallville took 10 years to put a cape on Tom Welling’s Clark Kent, »

This time, thanks to Netflix, Marvel’s first original series on the streaming service is executive produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, »

Black is the new red, at least for actor Charlie Cox. The star of Netflix’s upcoming Marvel series Daredevil will be donning an ensemble different than the superhero’s previous portrayals. Footage from the show was revealed exclusively to attendees at New York Comic Con on October 11, 2014 and included glimpses of Daredevil’s new garb. The look is inspired by the “Daredevil: Man Without Fear” comic series by Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr. While some reporters believe the costume change is Marvel’s attempt to stay as far away as possible from the 2003 flop of a film Daredevil, the black clothing could simply be a prototype as the character Matt Murdock begins his journey as the blind superhero. In addition to the dark attire, Nycc attendees were also treated to a shot of Cox as Murdock in a grey suit and rose-hued glasses, presumably as he goes »

The Flickering Myth staff react to the Daredevil reveal at the New York Comic Con…
Over the weekend at the New York Comi-Con, Marvel and Netflix held a panel for their upcoming Daredevil show and gave us our first look at Charlie Cox as The Man Without Fear. You can read a recap of the footage shown here.
But what did the Flickering Myth writing and editorial staff think of our first look for Daredevil?
Ben Rayner: …looks like the Deadpool: Pulp costume to me. Not sure if I like it or not. He must have been blind when he made it…
Luke Owen: Who would have thought that they’d go down The Trail of The Incredible Hulk route? I like this as a starting point. It fits their “dark and grittty” mood, even if it does raise questions about what mask they’ll do for Iron »

Jennifer Lopez showed subtle support for her ex-fiancé Ben Affleck when she shared a snap of herself watching his latest film, Gone Girl, over the weekend. The singer posted a picture of her shoes perched on a chair in a movie theater, writing, "Feet up . . . movie night!!! #GoneGirl." Ben and J Lo famously dated from 2002 to 2004 and were dubbed Bennifer by their fans. After their split, Ben went on to date, and eventually marry, his Daredevil costar Jennifer Garner, while J Lo moved on with her now ex-husband Marc Anthony. Despite the fact that they've both had high-profile relationships since their split, Jennifer is still often asked about her time dating Ben. Back in January 2013, Jennifer said she was proud of Ben's Argo award season success, admitting that "they were really hard on us in the press when we dated back in the day" so she was happy to see »
Kristen Stewart thinks it’s “really ridiculous” to say you’re not a feminist. [E!] At New York Comic-Con, the very first footage of Marvel’s new Netflix series Daredevil premiered. [io9] Katie Holmes will return as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the miniseries The Kennedys: After Camelot. [Et] Matthew Broderick is totally fine with Robert Downey, Jr. reaching out to his ex, and Broderick’s wife, Sarah Jessica Parker. [Us Weekly] If you haven’t watched this vintage Dinner for Five video featuring Jennifer Garner (who was married to Scott Foley at the time) and Ben Affleck (who was engaged to Jennifer Lopez) you need to now. Jen hopelessly gazes into Ben’s eyes while the actor remains completely unfazed. »

This weekend saw the New York Comic-Con hit the Big Apple and Marvel was, naturally, there in force. There were peeks at upcoming projects aplenty, but few drew as much interest as the first official glimpse of Charlie Cox and co. in the company’s Daredevil series, set to hit Netflix next year. The imagery in this new take on the vigilante hero is clearly inspired by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s Daredevil: Man Without Fear run, with a darker, less leathery costume (at least to begin with) and a chance to go to creepier places than the movie ever could. Cox, of course, is playing lawyer Matt Murdock, blinded as a young man in an accident that also heightened his other senses and gave him an echolocation-style way of “seeing” the world through sound.We already know that Deborah Ann Woll is playing Karen Page, with »
