The studio is teaming up with Netflix once again, this time to adapt comic book series "Alias" (no relation to the Jennifer Garner-led ABC hit) into a new show loosely connected to their previous smash "Daredevil" that took the streaming network by storm in April.
Access Hollywood spoke with "Jessica Jones" Executive Producer Melissa Rosenberg at the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and found out why Ritter was considered ...

It’s hard to stomach that Mark Waid’s Daredevil, which has been hitting stands every month for around four years, is about to end, but it is indeed going to be that time very soon. There’s a feeling of culmination in this penultimate issue, bringing back plot threads from not just the start of the “Marvel Now!” relaunch in 2014, but even before that from the first major part of Waid’s run. The result is solid modernistic superhero storytelling with high stakes, tough battles, and a constant questioning of the hero’s philosophy and capability. It’s a great read, page-for-page.
Thanks to all of the different threads that have been building in this run for the past few years, Daredevil finds himself in the middle of quite the storm. The stress is palpable, each »

Been a long time since a new hair cut has caused such talk.
Scarlett Johansson has been spotted returning to the "Captain America: Civil War" set after a break from filming. The catch? She's got a new hairdo and Just Jared has posted the shots of the actress sporting her own natural hair dyed Black Widow's signature red color - but way shorter.
When not on-set in a more regular Black Widow style wig, Johansson usually kept her blond hair intact - like she did back in May shooting scenes for 'Civil War' with a long red wig as seen here. This has immediately sparked speculation that Black Widow will get her locks chopped off in the film into a pixie-style reminiscent of her appearance in Frank Miller's "Daredevil" comic run.

Are you ready for Black Widow to get a makeover? Seems Marvel might be! Actress Scarlett Johansson was spotted away from the Captain America: Civil War set sporting a new hairdo that she tried very hard to hide. An actress with a different hair style wouldn't normally be anything new to report, but the shorn hair is still dyed Black Widow red, a color Scarlett Johansson doesn't usually keep when out of character. Is Natasha Romanova getting a drastic new look?
Since her debut on the big screen in 2010's Iron Man 2, Black Widow has altered her appearance in both hair and suit in each following movie, with Scarlett Johansson showing up in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. And her hair has gradually gotten shooter with each new adventure. But the 'pixie' cut, which is buzzed close to the scalp, »
As you can see from the image below (via Just Jared), Scarlett Johansson has been spotted out and about with a very different hairdo than we're used to seeing. This would normally be no big deal, but the fact that she's a) seemingly trying to conceal it, and b) it's still a Black Widow shade of red, definitely appears to indicate that this could be her look for Captain America: Civil War. Bear in mind that the comic book version of Black Widow sported a similar short style during Frank Miller's Daredevil run, so a change of look for the character wouldn't be too huge a departure from the source material. We've obviously seen the actress on the Atlanta set with her now familiar long haired look, so perhaps this new do will factor into the plot somehow. What do you guys think? »
A house is not a home, as Ben Affleck will soon learn. E! News confirms that he will rent Brooke Shields' home in L.A.'s Pacific Palisades after his family returns from Atlanta, where Jennifer Garner recently began shooting Miracles From Heaven. Ben won't live in Brooke's house forever, though. E! News has learned that the exes merely wanted a backup if construction on their own home goes long. "It's for convenience sake," a source explains. "They wanted another option." When Ben and Jennifer announced the end of their 10-year marriage last month, the Daredevil co-stars explained that they will live on the same property, but not in the same house, as they continue to co-parent »

Since last October’s DC film slate announcement, it’s been hinted that Warner Bros. is planning a solo Batman film following the Caped Crusader’s appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League: Part One. This was further fueled by a rumor earlier this month saying that Affleck will both star (duh) and direct the Batman film (said to be called The Batman). While the details are slightly different, it appears that Affleck is indeed on board, but more surprisingly, he may be working alongside one of DC’s star creators on the project. According to Deadline, the former Daredevil will co-write the solo Batman film’s script with DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. Affleck will direct and star in the film after he finishes the long-gestating Live By Night. This is a switch from the »
Between leading the charge on both sides of the camera for Argo, battling inner demons and a twisted spouse in Gone Girl, and the small matter of donning the cape and cowl for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s small wonder that Ben Affleck’s next directorial outing – an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s Live By Night – has been knocked down the pecking order.
But fret not, for Variety has brought word that Warner Bros. has officially greenlit the project, slating Affleck’s Prohibition-era drama for a November start. According to sources, the award-winning actor had intended to lift the crime tale from the pages of Lehane’s novel shortly after the release of Argo in 2013, but as we alluded to earlier, a couple of things cropped up. And by a couple of things we mean a near-unmissable David Fincher thriller and DC’s titanic comic book showdown. »

In the first season of "Daredevil," Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) talks about how he dated a Greek girl in college, but it "didn't work out." Fans of the character immediately knew he was talking about Elektra. Now we can match a face to the name. Marvel has announced they've cast Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as the character of Elektra in season 2 of Netflix's "Daredevil" set to be released in 2016. "After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra's impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity," said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. "Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for." The character of Elektra plays a pivotal role »

The Marvel/Netflix Daredevil series began shooting its second season recently and, after a brief mention in an episode, we know that one of the most important people from Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) past will be showing up in his present, in the shape of Elektra. Now we also know who will be playing her on screen, as Elodie Yung has won the role. Yung, probably still best known for her work in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, will play the Greek-born trained assassin, originally created by Frank Miller, who inspires both passion and pain in our hero. “After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity,” Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb said in a statement. “Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the »
Well! Someone woke up on the wrong side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe today. Screen Junkies just issued a new Honest Trailer for Robert Downey Jr.'s original "Iron Man," the "Marvel masterpiece that started it all" and, without which, would leave "Hollywood in the terrifying position of having to develop something original." (True enough.)
As they mock:
From the company that went bankrupt in the '90s and sold off the rights to its most popular characters comes a film based on the equivalent of leftover scrap metal, proving that Marvel can build a franchise around just about anybody ... except The Hulk."
Poor Hulk! He's already been trashed in his own separate trailer.
Screen Junkies continued:
Experience the massive success that Marvel turned into a formula for printing money, where you take a half-forgotten, B-list superhero, cast an unknown or half-forgotten B-list actor, have him fight a generic villain »

"After a worldwide search, we found in Élodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity," said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb.
"Paired with Charlie as 'Matt Murdock', the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for."
Elektra is a 'kunoichi', female ninja assassin. She wields a pair of bladed 'sai' as her trademark weapon.
Created by Frank Miller, Elektra first appeared in Marvel Comics' "Daredevil" #168 (January 1981), as a love interest of the superhero 'Daredevil', but her violent nature and mercenary lifestyle divide the two. »
