In another move that shows how much inspiration the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series will draw from Frank Miller’s run in the comics, Marvel has cast Scott Glenn (The Hunt for Red October, Silence of the Lambs) as Stick, the mysterious martial artist famous for training both Elektra and the titular Man Without Fear.
Stick was created by Miller in 1981, where he’s depicted as a blind master martial artist who not only teaches a young Matt Murdock how to fight, but how to control his senses and develop his “radar sense.” Stick is also revealed to be the leader of a warrior order called The Chaste that regularly fought with a mercenary group known as The Hand.

Best known for his work in blockbuster films such as The Bourne Ultimatum, Silence of the Lambs and The Hunt for Red October, Scott Glenn will play Stick, the mysterious martial artist and mentor of Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil).
Scott Glenn joins Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), with Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of Marvel's Daredevil.
Here's what Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television, had to say about the casting in his statement.
"Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock's life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero's journey. There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, »
Marvel Studios is planning on revealing lots of new details about their upcoming Daredevil series at New York Comic Con next month, but showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight already shared a few things about it with Paste Magazine. In a recentinterview he offers a little tease of their vision for the man without fear.
"With this version of Daredevil we wanted it to be grounded, gritty, as realistic as we could portray. That naturally fits in with the Daredevil character. Matt Murdock, on a regular basis, would get the shit beat out of him. That's one thing that makes him a great character. He's not super strong. He's not invulnerable. In every aspect, he's a man that's just pushed himself to the limits, he just has senses that are better than a normal humans. He is human. The other thing that really drew me to this character is that he's one »

One of my favorite movies so far this year has been The One I Love. I was going to preface the film's title with a summary of its genre -- for example, "the delightful romantic comedy" or "the taut suspense thriller" but as you know if you've heard anything about the movie, the less said the better. It defies genre, and is just as twisty as last year's smart horror-comedy The Cabin in the Woods. Check out Marcie's vague but heartfelt review for -- well, not details exactly, but at least a recommendation.
Director Charlie McDowell and actor/producer Mark Duplass were in Austin last month to promote the movie, which opened in Austin at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar last Friday and will continue through next Wednesday, at least. You can also catch it on various online VOD outlets. As you probably know, Mark and his brother Jay Duplass used to live in Austin, »

Gallery 1988 (West) is currently hosting a new show dedicated to the oeuvre of Joss Whedon (sans the Marvel stuff, I noticed). What attendees get is a mix of everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - both the feature film and television incarnations - to Firefly to The Cabin in the Woods. Usually, at shows like this, I expect artists to gravity to one property more than the other. In this case, however, everything Whedon had his fingerprints on was evenly represented...and the artists were clearly excited to take a crack at The Cabin in the Woods. I snapped some pics at (most) of the art representing the film - check 'em out in the gallery below.

Sir Ridley Scott’s next project is The Martian, a movie which is based on an e-book by Andy Weir about an astronaut stranded on Mars who must figure out how to stay alive long enough to get back home.
Matt Damon is already attached to star, and now Jessica Chastain is said to be in early talks for the lead female role, as is Kristen Wiig. There are no details on who either of them will be playing as of yet.
Chastain has starred in a number of movies including Lawless and Zero Dark Thirty. She will next be seen in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. Wiig meanwhile is known for comedic roles in the likes of Bridesmaids and Knocked Up, but was equally impressive in Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

The History Channel has released a full trailer for their new four-hour Houdini miniseries. The show will follow the life of the legendary magician from his beginnings in desperate poverty to the worldwide fame that he gained. The series stars Adrien Brody, and it looks like it's going to be pretty damn good.
Before David Blaine and David Copperfield, there was one man whose name was synonymous with being the master of illusion and escape - Harry Houdini. Houdini follows the man behind the magic as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters the greatest names of the era, from U.S. presidents to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Grigori Rasputin. The drama will chronicle the life of a man who can defy death through his stunts, his visions and his mastery of illusion.

Aram and Tolmach are also producing Sinister Six, which is slated to premiere Nov. 11, 2016.

Deadline reports some interesting news that Sony has hired Lisa Joy Nolan to write the screenplay of a female led-film in the universe of The Amazing Spider-Man. This news comes after recent developments that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back to 2018. Sony has been planning to create their own Avengers-style cinematic universe with The Amazing Spider-Man, with planned Sinister Six and Venom spinoffs, but after the less than positive critical response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it being the lowest grossing Spider-Man film to date at $707 million (good for Spider-man, but not great), Sony is currently retooling their plans.
Though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may be the series the character deserves and doesn’t instill much confidence in the franchise going further, it is exciting to hear that we’re getting a female-centric superhero film. Though many backwards-thinking folk may cite Catwoman and Elektra for reasons why »

While Sony has denied that they are doing a complete revamp of their most important franchise after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to live up to expectations this summer, it seems that may not be the case. Deadline claims the studio is doing a top-to-bottom revamp, and are planning a female led superhero movie set within the The Amazing Spider-Man universe for release in 2017.
The Sinister Six will be the next movie Sony releases in their ongoing The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, a spin-off that will focus on six main villains who come together for a common cause. It will be in theaters November 16, 2016. Drew Goddard is set to write and direct that spin-off, with Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach producing. It hasn't been confirmed which villains will appear in the spin-off, but Vulture, Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman were teased during The Amazing Spider-Man 2's end credits scene, »
Ridley Scott is gunning for an Oscar – and if this fall’s buzzy Exodus: Gods and Kings doesn’t get him to that Dolby theatre stage (as it probably won’t, given the slew of competitors including Inherent Vice, Unbroken, Gone Girl and Interstellar), he’s already lined up his next attempt. The Gladiator director’s next film, sci-fi drama The Martian, has been shifted from its March 2016 date and set for a prime awards-season release date of November 25th, 2015.
That’s a big show of confidence in the project from 20th Century Fox. And perhaps the studio has good reason to be excited, seeing as Warner Bros.’ space-set drama Gravity shaped up into a major awards-season juggernaut last year. Based on the eBook by Andy Weir, The Martian follows an astronaut who becomes stranded on the Red Planet. With depleting oxygen and slimming options, he must reach his crew »

While it remains to be seen how Karen's relationship with Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) plays out on the show, Karen was the longest-running love interest for the blind attorney/costumed vigilante in the Marvel comic books. Marvel legend Stan Lee created the character, who debuted in 1964 as a secretary at Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson's law firm, before she eventually learned about Matt's double life. Ellen Pompeo portrayed Karen Page in the 2003 Daredevil feature.
Take a look at the official press release below for Marvel's Daredevil.

Week in Review rounds up the best of the rest of film and TV news hitting the web this week. Check out the rest of the Sos Blog for more news updates.
Unless your name is Edgar Wright, it’s hard to imagine a superhero movie of any caliber and pedigree not somehow getting made in today’s day and age.
And yet in 1997, that’s exactly what happened. Tim Burton, many years after the success of his original Batman, was attached to direct Superman Lives, originally starring none other than Nicolas Cage as everyone’s favorite Kryptonian and adapted from a screenplay by Kevin Smith.
Just how in God’s green Earth did this brilliant, strange mash-up of talents in a movie never come to light is the question behind a documentary currently in production, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?
