With Comic-Con kicking off tomorrow and a host of superhero news expected, including an announcement on Marvel’s Phase Three movies and – potentially – the future of the DC movie universe, it’s an early (and somewhat abridged) edition of The Week in Spandex this week as we round up all the superhero news from the past few days, with a post-Comic-Con edition set to follow on Monday. Anyway, let’s get cracking…

Kevin Feige should be riddled with doubt.
Each time the president of Marvel Studios has greenlit a movie, he’s been barraged by skeptics. “Iron Man” was considered too obscure. “Captain America” too American. And “Thor” too much of a fantasy figure.
With each movie costing in the neighborhood of $200 million to produce, these questions are certainly warranted. But so far Feige has proved his critics wrong, launching some of Hollywood’s biggest franchises: The nine films Marvel Studios has made since 2008’s “Iron Man” have collectively earned more than $6.4 billion at the worldwide box office.
Now comes the 10th, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” debuting Aug. 1 — along with even more raised eyebrows.
The space-set actioner, which will be promoted at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, revolves around a ragtag group of otherworldly misfits on the run after stealing an orb whose power threatens the cosmos. It stars Chris Pratt, »

Ok, my "history" with this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has been an emotional roller coaster.
First, I reviewed a script that had the Turtles as alien beings from Dimension X. It had a pretty good first act that I'd totally watch and love, but it ended with the Technodrome warping into Manhattan. Well it Ended for real with a shot of a bunch of new Turtles, including some chicks.
Then Michael Bay said I was full of crap, then I lined up the dates on the script with the news of what drafts were announced, then I got invited down to the set in lower Manhattan where I was happy to see that the design changes to characters were the most drastic: there was a Shredder a Splinter, an April some Ooze, some Ninjas - you know, a Turtle movie. It seemed like the ship was righted and »
With each successive announcement regarding Netflix's upcoming Daredevil television series, I have become more and more excited for the project. The casting of Charlie Cox, Vincent D'Onofrio, Rosario Dawson, and Deborah Ann Woll all seem to be pitch perfect and even the departure of Drew Goddard doesn't seem to have impacted the development of the show. But, I cannot help but hoping that the series would be a darker look at the hero than we saw in the Ben Affleck film or even what has been »

We know most of Daredevil's cast, but the story and tone are very much being kept a secret. Though he couldn't reveal too much about the series, Steven S. DeKnight was able to drop a few interesting tidbits of information at tonight's Guardians of the Galaxy premiere. The full interview can be watched in the video below, but perhaps the most revealing detail was what DeKnight had to say about Daredevil's tone. "We're going for a very gritty, 1970's New York feel. We love the idea of beauty in the decay of the city, and Hell's Kitchen being a place that is both horrible and beautiful at the same time. That's why Matt Murdock loves it so much and wants to protect it." That sounds a lot more Frank Miller than Mark Waid, and not too dissimilar to what Joe Carnahan had in store for the Man Without »

Wow, there’s been so much superhero news this week, you’d think it was Comic-Con already!

This is an article im a bit scared to write. Cause Daredevil is a movie that seems to get a lot of hate. Hell, even Ben Affleck himself says its the only movie he regrets doing. Your movie has got to be pretty bad for your main actor to say that, and Affleck was in Gili. But we arn't here to talk about the Theatrical Cut, we are here to discuss the Directors Cut, and why i believe it should stand up as one of the comic book movies we remember and remeber fondly. 1.) Almost everybody in the movie was perfectly cast. Now, i know what you are thinking. "Shouldn't this apply to the theatrical cut as well since no one was recast in the directors cut?" Now while you are partially right on that statement i put that here cause the sad part is is that although the theatrical »
Coming to Netflix in 2015, the small screen version of Marvel's Daredevil comics is rounding out its cast nicely.
Boardwalk Empire and Stardust's Charlie Cox is in the titular superhero role (or that of lawyer Matt Murdock when he's not wearing the suit), joined by Eldon Henson as colleague and pal Foggy Nelson, Vincent D'Onofrio as crimelord Kingpin, and not forgetting Rosario Dawson in a recurring but as-yet unannounced role.
Daredevil's newest recruit is a key role, that of law firm colleague and love interest, Karen Page. Deborah Ann Woll, now free from her True Blood commitments as Jessica Hamby since filming wrapped on the show's final season, is to play Page. Grey's Anatomy Ellen Pompeo, you might remember, took the role in the little-loved 2003 movie adaptation.

Joss Whedon spoke about Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is still filming in London, firstly discussing Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson's characters Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, saying: "They're on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they're dealing with powers that they're not used to... With the first Avengers, everybody pretty much had the power of being able to punch somebody, and now we have a woman who can get inside your head and move objects, and a boy that can move faster than anything, and a robot Ultron who can self-replicate and is out of his mind. So all of sudden, it's a darker, weirder, tougher world that they're living in." Taylor-Johnson chimed in adding, "There's a lot of clashing. He's quick tempered. He gets agitated. He's impatient. But he's super protective... They're very yin-and-yang in that twin sense. In his power, »

Woll will play Karen Page, the greatest ongoing romance for the comic title's blind hero Matt Murdock (played by Charlie Cox). Murdock is a lawyer by day, crime-fighting hero by night who protects New York's dangerous Hell's Kitchen area and its citizens.
First appearing in the comics in 1964, Page is a secretary at Murdock's law firm and eventually learns of Matt's secret life as the superhero Daredevil. Ellen Pompeo played the role in the 2003 film where it was more of a throwaway part while Jennifer Garner's Elektra was the central female role.
Here, the role is said to be the first time the character will be accurately portrayed on screen as she was in the comics. Steven S. DeKnight ("Spartacus") is the showrunner on the »

Hot on the heels of word that Peter Shinkoda would be playing an original character named Hachiro in Netflix and Marvel’s upcoming TV series Daredevil, we’ve learned that another talented actor has joined the 13-episode series’ already impressive cast.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deborah Ann Woll will play Karen Page in Daredevil. In the comics, she was the secretary at the law firm of Nelson & Murdock and Matt and Foggy would often battle for her affections...despite the fact that she only really had eyes for Daredevil! Ellen Pompeo (Grey's Anatomy) made a brief and forgettable appearance as Karen in the 2003 movie, but Woll will have a leading role in this series in what the site's sources describe as, "the first time the Karen character will be brought to life in a meaningful way." The True Blood star joins Charlie Cox as The Man Without Fear, Elden Hensonas Franklin "Foggy" Nelson, Vincent D'Onofrio as The Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson in a mysterious role which is more than likely Elektra. »

Netflix's 'Daredevil' series will be the ''best incarnation'' of the character yet. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says the comic book brand's TV arm has lofty ambitions for the new adaptation following a critically panned Ben Affleck-starring 2003 movie based on the blind superhero. Speaking to Bang Showbiz, he said: ''The goal on the 'Daredevil' series is to now make the best incarnation of Daredevil that has ever existed.'' Kevin - who oversees all of Marvel's movies including 'The Avengers' - says there may be some crossover between Marvel TV's five new shows and Marvel Studios' cinematic releases. However, the top priority is to »
Out doing promo rounds for Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" in London this week, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offered a brief update on the company's "Daredevil" TV series which is slated to debut on Netflix next year.
Feige says unlike "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." which heavily tied to events in the Marvel Studios films right from the get go, the producers of "Daredevil"aren't planning on linking the show to the Marvel Cinematic Universe just yet. He tells Wired:
"I think they're being very smart about that, approaching the shows the way we approach movies, which is to focus on the core project, make sure it's as great as it can be, beginning, middle, and end.
Then they see if there are places where it makes sense for some interweaving of continuity. Right now, their goal, and they're in production on the Daredevil series, is focusing on making it the »
