Well, it’s certainly been a huge week for Marvel fans!

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 »
It’s been a little while since Marvel dropped some info about Daredevil, their first Netflix series, but this weekend’s New York Comic Con gave fans a little something to chew on. First up is some official concept art by Joe Quesada, which is a beautiful and moody piece.
The panel also revealed that Rosario Dawson will play Claire Temple, a nurse that help Daredevil and was an early love interest of Luke Cage in the comics and the way she is describe in the show makes her sound a little bit like a version of Night Nurse. It was also revealed that Bob Gunton will play Leland Owlsley aka the Owl, Vondie Curtis-Hall will be reporter Ben Urich, and Ayelet Zurer (the best part of Man of Steel) as Vanessa, a romantic interest of the Kingpin.
Next up Marvel screened some footage, which unfortunately hasn’t not been released online, »

On Friday at New York Comic-Con, Kevin Smith took the above picture with a little girl dressed like Daredevil, and promptly posted it on his Instagram. Cute, right? But then, when he saw one of the reactions on Facebook, it hit him “like a ton of bricks” — a “drive-by” comment that was just a string of insults: “You’re fat, probably smelly, you haven’t done anything worthwhile in years, you’ve been cruising on past endeavors, and I bet your wife is going to leave you soon,” he said. (Note: the comment isn't there anymore.) That last one actually prompted him to call his wife Jennifer to ask, “Are you thinking of leaving me? Somebody on Facebook says that you’re going to leave me!" Her reply? “Grow up, Kevin.” During his New York Super Week/New York Comic-Con fan event Saturday at Hammerstein Ballroom, Smith admitted that when »

Marvel may have missed out on showing off their upcoming Daredevil series at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, but the studio made up for it in spades this weekend when they brought the Man Without Fear to Nycc. Not only did we finally get our first look at Charlie Cox in costume as the titular vigilante, but we now know who Rosario Dawson will be playing and also received information on four exciting new cast additions: Ayelet Zurer, Bob Gunto, Toby Moore and Vondie Curtis Hall.
Zurer, best known for her role in Angels & Demons and for playing Superman’s Kryptonian birth mother in last year’s Man of Steel, will play Vanessa Marianna, an art dealer who becomes the wife of notorious crime boss Wilson Fisk a.k.a. The Kingpin (played by Vincent D’Onofrio). According to Marvel, her “chance meeting with Wilson Fisk dramatically changes their lives. »

As promised, Marvel brought Daredevil to Nycc on Saturday and did not leave fans disappointed. Not only did we get some awesome concept art designed by legendary comics artist and editor Joe Quesada (who drew Daredevil for Kevin Smith’s run in 1999), but we finally got an official synopsis and our very first look at Charlie Cox (Stardust) in costume as both Matt Murdock and his alter-ego, the titular Man Without Fear!
As you can see, the all-black costume is extremely basic and isn’t quite the red superhero outfit that we’re used to. In fact, its more reminiscent of the Frank Miller and John Romita Jr. outfit that we saw in Daredevil: Man Without Fear. That was an origin story and is one of the most beloved Daredevil titles, so it makes perfect sense that showrunner Steven S. DeKnight would borrow from it quite liberally.
