Marvel Studios’ and Netflix’s upcoming collection of superhero series – each one based in Hell’s Kitchen and filmed on location in New York – will vary significantly in style compared to previous Marvel projects… or, at the very least, so the folk working on the shows behind the scenes would have you believe. The first of these series is Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) as the blind, righteous, lawyer Matt Murdock – whose costumed alter ego, Daredevil, battles such criminals as the nefarious Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) on the streets of Murdock’s battered, but still standing, home turf.
Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has said that the Daredevil series – which he also referred to as “the street level Noir side” of Marvel Studios’ larger Shared Universe (one that includes movies and small screen fare alike) – is “Marvel doing street ...

HBO has released this a new TV spot for the fifth and final season of their great series Boardwalk Empire. This is such an amazing series, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes to an end.

Whenever Steven Spielberg makes a movie, we pay attention – and when it was revealed that he’d be re-teaming with his Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal star Tom Hanks for his latest, an Untitled Cold War Thriller, we went from interested to excited. Add in that Ethan and Joel Coen penned the latest iteration of the script, working from an original draft from Matt Charman, and you’ve got the recipe for an absolutely terrific thriller. Now, Spielberg has enlisted the help of four other stars for major roles in the project.
Gone Baby Gone Oscar nominee Amy Ryan has come aboard as the wife of James Donovan (Hanks), “the CIA attorney who is thrust behind the Iron Curtain when he is sent to negotiate the release of captured American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers.” Also in talks for roles are Alan Alda (Little Miss Sunshine »

Boardwalk Empire's fifth and final season promises a reckoning. Here's the latest season five teaser...
"Baby girl, Jesus was wrong"
So says a distinctly crumpled-looking Chalky White in this latest Boardwalk Empire season five teaser. It's goodbye to crisp suits, shiny shoes and custom wet shaves in this new Depression-era season, and hello to shaggy beards and regret.
A shortened eight-episode run of Boardwalk Empire will bring Terence Winter's bootlegging drama to a close this autumn. Seven years have passed since the end of season four and the beginning of season five, taking the action all the way to 1931, when an awful lot of water has passed under the bridge for Nucky Thompson and co.
Boardwalk Empire season five starts on HBO in the Us on Sunday the 7th of September.

By the time the next film from Steven Spielberg hits theaters, it will have been nearly three years since Lincoln hit theaters. That just goes to show you how hard it is to find the right project or even get one made, regardless of whether you're an iconic filmmaker or not. But Spielberg is hard at work on getting an untitled Cold War thriller off the ground, aiming to begin shooting this fall, with Tom Hanks reuniting with the director for a fourth time. And now Deadline has a line on some supporting cast members with Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, Win Win) and veteran actor Alan Alda both taking roles. But that's not all. More below! In addition, TV stars Billy Magnussen ("Boardwalk Empire") and Eve Hewson ("The Knick") have landed roles, joining stage star Mark Rylance as part of the supporting cast. For those who haven't been following the project, »

Following the first trailer that debuted last month, HBO has released the second trailer for the final season of Boardwalk Empire, which debuts on Sunday, September 7.
Unlike the first four seasons, which were set in the Roaring 20s, Season 5 is set in 1931, in the midst of the Great Depression as Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) plots his post-Prohibition future. Check out the latest footage for this eight-episode season, then read on for more information.
The season's tagline, "No one goes quietly," could indicate that the main cast members, including Steve Buscemi, will be killed off as the series comes to a close with its final eight episodes. When Season 4 ended, which was set in 1924, Atlantic City was rocked by Eli Thompson (Shea Whigham) cooperating with the FBI, as the war between Chalky White (Michael K. Williams) and Dr. Valentin Narcisse (Jeffrey Wright) continues to escalate. It remains to be seen how »
"Boardwalk Empire" will be taking its final journey along the coast of New Jersey this fall, and it's going to bring some big changes with it. The last season of the period drama will apparently jump the timeline forward to the early '30s, just as prohibition is about to end. They're also going to have a lot less time to wrap up their final season. Instead of the regular twelve episodes, HBO is only giving them a shortened eight ep season. But it looks as if it'll be an intense one. HBO has dropped a brand new teaser for the final season, and from Chalky White intoning that "Jesus was wrong" about forgiveness to the closing tagline announcing "No One Goes Quietly," big things are on horizon. The faces you'll want to see are here with Steve Buscemi, Michael K. Williams, Michael Shannon, Kelly Macdonald and more all glimpsed, »

HBO has taken a page out of Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner’s playbook, releasing another promo for Boardwalk Empire’s final season that manages to make every brief clip feel super important while at the same time revealing almost nothing about the season’s plot.
The 52-second spot opens with Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) sitting in a boardroom, staring out into the distance as a woman whispers, “There’s forgiveness for everyone. That’s what Jesus said.” The promo then cuts to Chalky While (Michael Kenneth Williams) correcting her: “Baby girl, Jesus was wrong.” That’s when a cover of “St. »

"True Blood" actress Deborah Ann Woll is the newest cast addition to Netflix's upcoming superhero series "Daredevil," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Woll will play Karen Page, a law firm secretary and love interest for its blind lawyer, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox, "Boardwalk Empire"), who secretly operates as the crime-fighting hero Daredevil. "Daredevil," which premieres in 2015, is part of a joint Marvel Television and ABC Television Studios project featuring multiple original programs -- including "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage" -- that chronicle the rise of The Defenders, a loosely organized band of heroes with the reputation of being a "non-team." Each 13-episode series will spotlight the heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York, culminating with Marvel's »

Michael Pitt is the rare actor who, after 15 years in the business (including a stint on Dawson's Creek), remains idiosyncratic and whole. Clocking most of his time with independent filmmakers and esteemed names like Gus Van Sant, Michael Haneke, and Bernardo Bertolucci, Pitt remains a stranger to the throes of studio movies — Murder by Numbers and The Village being rare exceptions. He has never been forced to fit a star mold. His collaborators wouldn't have it any other way. One hundred percent undistilled Pitt ranges from brooding intensity to lunacy of every color. He does what he does, and he does it well. The maturation of television worked in his favor; Boardwalk Empire and NBC's Hannibal have Hollywood sheen and artistic souls. One might describe Pitt the same way.In I Origins, Pitt skews closer to "leading man" territory than ever before. His character, Ian Gray, is a dapper »

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.

Thanks to Marvel_Spider for the heads up Set Photo by Mediawill "Marvel’s Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Charlie Cox ("Boardwalk Empire") will play Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio ("Men In Black") will play Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin, Elden Henson (“Mighty Ducks”) will play Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll ("True Blood") will play Karen Page and Rosario Dawson ("Sin City") will play a beautiful female character. »
Marvel's Daredevil TV series has added Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) to the cast to play Karen Page. The character has long been the blind superhero's love interest in the comics, and it looks like the Netflix limited series will continue that tradition. In the comics, the two go through periods of break-ups and make-ups that ultimately ends with her being killed by Bullseye, because what good is a female character if she can't be murdered by the hero's arch-nemesis? (see also: Elektra) Hopefully, the Daredevil TV series makes Page more than a love interest followed by tragedy fodder. Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) will star as Murdock/Daredevil, along with Elden Henson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) as Murdock’s best friend and legal partner Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as the crime lord Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson, who has an unknown role on the show. Daredevil will premiere on Netflix next year. »
