Two new photos have gone online from Netflix's upcoming Marvel TV series "Daredevil" which is due to premiere on the video streaming giant next year.
Both images show star Charlie Cox in character as the blind Matt Murdock - by day he's a lawyer, by night a vigilante fighting for justice in Hell's Kitchen. One of the shots shows him in a black Frank Miller inspired costume which already appeared in another batch of stills released earlier this year.

Thanks to Film Divider and Entertainment Weekly, we have two new photos from Netflix's upcoming series Marvel's Daredevil. The first image shows star Charlie Cox suited up in his black Frank Miller inspired costume. The second image shows the actor as blind lawyer Matt Murdock, as he makes his way down a busy Hell's Kitchen street.
Marvel's Daredevil will be featured in this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, which has a preview of new and upcoming movies and TV shows set to be released in 2015. It is not known exactly what else is revealed about Netflix's upcoming series, or if there will be any more photos released. The image included here is from a fight scene that was revealed during Comic-Con, and is featured in the first episode. The series does not yet have a set premiere date.
If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.
The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

Over the last few months, there's been an awful lot of chatter about Marvel having conversations with Sony about finding a way to sneak their version of Spider-Man into their cinematic universe. For as long as Marvel Studios has been a thing, fans have clamored for the studio to "get back" all of its properties- which were scattered around at rival studios before Marvel got its act together. For some characters, like Daredevil and Ghost Rider, that happened. For others, like Spider-Man and The X-Men, it clearly hasn't.
But this latest flare-up of rumors just won't die. So how far have these talks gone? What was discussed? Well, thanks to Stan Lee and a couple of hackers, here's the latest...
Moviepilot is reporting that Lee, Marvel's iconic writer and mascot, has given the world an answer to the question of a crossover that reveals it's far from a dead issue: »

What a week for comic book roles being cast huh?! Earlier this week the official cast (or bulk of it) for David Ayer's Suicide Squad was announced, and today Marvel is on the Prowl. They've officially confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will bring Doctor Strange to life, and it sounds like Krysten Ritter will be Jessica Jones on Netflix. Come inside to learn more!
It's an exciting time for nerds, as the last couple of weeks have brought us our first looks at Jurassic World, The Force Awakens, and casting confirmations on some of our most anticipated comic book properties. Let's get the big one out of the way first. Once Joaquin Phoenix passed on Doctor Strange, the rumor world then turned to Benedict Cumberbatch (a very excellent choice). Well today, Marvel has made it offical and cast the fan-favorite actor as the Sorcerer Supreme! From the press release:

When DC announced that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman there was outrage among the fan community. Fans were wondering how he managed to land this role of a lifetime after the atrocious depiction of Daredevil a decade ago. Despite this criticism, the studio has soldiered on, making some amazing casting choices for Batman’s showdown with Superman.
DC has recently excited fans by announcing the all star cast of the Suicide Squad movie, confirming Jared Leto will be playing The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Will Smith as Deadshot. The casting in Batman V Superman has been equally spectacular, albeit without receiving anywhere near as much recognition because of the few controversial decisions.

While prepping to shoot the Daredevil season finale, showrunner Steven DeKnight took to Twitter to answer some questions about the upcoming Netflix series. The show stars Charlie Cox as the title character, but his rendition of Daredevil may look less familiar to some because thanks to the first stills that dropped about two months ago, we know that Daredevil isn’t beginning the show with his iconic red costume, suggesting that DeKnight and co. may be sticking close to Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s Daredevil: Man Without Fear. But even if that is the case, you can expect the show to branch out to a degree because during that Twitter Q&A, DeKnight confirmed that Daredevil will follow in the footsteps of basically every Marvel big and small screen project and include Easter eggs. Hit the jump for more on that and for DeKnight’s interest in working with The Punisher. »

Anna Kendrick could be joining Ben Affleck in the Gavin O’Connor directed thriller ‘The Accountant’. As reported by Variety, Kendrick is in early negotiations alongside J.K. Simmons to star in the film set to chronicle Affleck in the role of a “mild-mannered” accountant by day, who turns into a lethal assassin by night. Given Affleck’s blockbuster streak (The Town, Argo, Gone Girl) this shouldn’t be a ‘Daredevil’ repeat in the making. It is unclear what role Kendrick would take on if she joins the cast. The Warner Bros. picture is expected to start filming this January from the original script written by Bill Dubuque. Kendrick recently wrapped her role for [ Read More ]

On sale this Wednesday, All-New Captain America #1 marks the beginning of Sam Wilson's tenure as Captain America. Following last month's Captain America #25, former Captain America Steve Rogers has named the hero formerly known as The Falcon as his successor after an encounter with a villain known as The Iron Nail removed the Super Soldier serum from his blood, rendering him an old man. With a new Cap comes a new comic book series and creative team. While Captain America writer Rick Remender is staying on board, he's joined by Stuart Immonen on pencils, Wade Von Grawbadger on inks, and »

At the multiplex, the age-old battle between DC Comics and Marvel Comics -- between the House of Superman and Batman and the House of Spider-Man and Iron Man -- there's no question that Marvel has been winning decisively for nearly two decades. But what about the battle between the two superhero universes on TV?
On the small screen, DC seems to be on top, as it has since virtually the dawn of television. Just in terms of sheer numbers, DC has four current primetime series ("Arrow," "The Flash," "Gotham," and "Constantine"), compared to just one for Marvel ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.").
A recent article at Salon pointed out this discrepancy, which naturally got the author in trouble with the Marvel faithful. Marvel defenders will tell you that "S.H.I.E.L.D." is much improved in its second season over its first, and that the DC characters, storylines, and even visuals seem thin by comparison. »

As soon as Ben Affleck was announced as the latest actor to portray the caped crusader the internet exploded with criticism. Some of it was lingering on his poor performance in Daredevil, others were scathing attacks which insulted his acting and directorial abilities, as well as making personal jabs which were in no way acceptable.
Unlike many comic book superheroes, Batman has had an abundance of on screen performances; ranging from the comedic times of Adam West to the unintentionally laughable George Cooney film, and then the ultra serious and immensely popular portrayal by Christian Bale. With so many actors having played this role it is inevitable that Affleck was going to get some criticism, but he has so many redeeming features which are bound to help him become the best Batman to grace our screens so far.

When it was first announced that instead of Man of Steel 2 audiences would be getting Batman v Superman, the project instantly established itself as one of the biggest blockbusters that Hollywood has ever attempted. Two iconic superheroes that have remained enduringly popular for almost a century finally appearing in the same movie, with their previous cinematic outings generating billions of dollars in box office revenue in movies that ranged from the very good to the very bad.
Then the backlash started. Ben Affleck was cast as Batman to a hugely negative fan reaction, surely due to the fact that he played the title role in the underwhelming Daredevil, seeing as he had successfully reinvented himself as a critically adored actor, writer and director over the last decade. Jesse Eisenberg took the role of Lex Luthor, Gal Gadot was announced as Wonder Woman and suddenly many fans were predicting an unmitigated disaster. »

Daredevil series showrunner Steven DeKnight took to Twitter recently to answer fan questions regarding the highly anticipated Marvel Netflix series. During New York City Comic-Con we got our first look at the series, along with some story details. But now we've got some new information that includes which character we won't see in the series, what the tone is like, and the inspiration behind the story development of the show. Here are many of the questions and answers from his little Twitter frenzy.

You may remember back when Maya Hanson was being cast for Iron Man 3, at one point Jessica Chastain was in final talks to play the character. Unfortunately she had to drop out and Rebecca Hall wound up in the role, but by the sounds of things a part like that wouldn't have been up Chastain's alley anyway because, to paraphrase Colin Farrell's Daredevil character Bullseye, she wants a bloody costume -- and it looks like she might just get the chance to wear one. Since that departure with Marvel, fans have wondered if there'd be another opportunity for the Zero Dark Thirty actress to suit up as a different character, and when the Captain Marvel movie was announced last week she immediately shot to the top of many fan's wishlists. In an interview with MTV, Chastain reveals that there has been conversations, though she remains tight lipped about the specifics. »
We know from the first official photo of Daredevil that Matt Murdock will wear a very early ninja-like black suit (similar to the one seen in Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s Man Without Fear) in the Netflix series, but whether or not he'll done the classic red costume seen above isn't quite so clear. While we don't get a definite answer here, it does sound as if it will turn up sooner rather than later. However, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the classic red suit doesn't make an appearance to well past the halfway point, and with any luck, we may even get to see the yellow version first! DeKnight is a must-follow on Twitter, but be sure to also stay tuned to Cbm for more on Daredevil! Can't say. Must watch. But Rt @RuhailAli: Are you allowed to tell us whether or not the iconic »
It turns out one of the most famous villains from the "Daredevil" comics will Not be making an appearance in the upcoming Netflix TV series.
Showrunner Steven DeKnight was recently asked on social media about who would be playing master assassin Bullseye in the show, to which he responded "no one".
Colin Farrell played the character in the 2002 film, but from the sounds of it the new incarnation of the baddie is being held off until a later date. He marks the second key character from the previous film who is a no show in the new series, the other being Elektra.
Filming has been underway in Williamsburg and Greenpoint recently and DNAinfo reports that popular dive bar Turkey's Nest Tavern was recently transformed into "Josie's Hell's Kitchen" for the shoot - a bar in the comics where Daredevil goes to gather intel.

It sounds like Daredevil might just end up wearing that black costume from Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s Man Without Fear for the majority of the first season of his Netflix series based on new filming details. According to DNAinfo, popular dive bar Turkey's Nest Tavern was recently transformed into "Josie's Hell's Kitchen" and is a location from the comic books where ol' Hornhead visits when trying to get information out of the criminal underworld. Fight scenes have also been shot, with one featuring "Daredevil in black uniformed costume beats up guys to get information" and another with him in the same outfit beating up a "Junkie drug abuser". Filming notices also reveal that a scene where a biker pushes Daredevil into eight motorcycles was shot. Specific locations for each of these can be found by clicking the link below.

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.

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. »
