Author: Scott Davis

After building up a huge following on the small screen, Marvel are preparing to unleash their television version of The Avengers with the superhero team-up The Defenders, which see’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist come together to fight a seeimingly insurmountable evil in New York City and sees them lock horns with the legendary Sigourney Weaver who takes on villain duties in the mini-series.

We were lucky enough to speak to the head showrunner of the show Marco Ramirez, who was also the lead runner of Daredevil and chat all things Netflix and Marvel.

“It (The Defenders) was always something that was part of the plan and when Netflix and Marvel signed the deal it was these our shows and then The Defenders, which was like this ‘superbowl’.” said Ramirez when we spoke about the hugely anticipated show, saying that there was no

Marvel’s Runaways Is Set In The Same Universe As The Netflix Shows

We’ve always been told that Marvel’s TV shows are set within the realms of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that unites their movies. Mostly, though, this just means that the likes of Daredevil and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can namecheck Iron Man or the Hulk once in a while. The shows don’t ever crossover themselves, though. For instance, Phil Coulson isn’t going to turn up on, say, Jessica Jones anytime soon.

Intriguingly, though, some new information suggests that the latest series to join Marvel’s TV output, Hulu’s Runaways, will be connected to the Netflix corner of the McU. If true, this will be the first time that Marvel series that air on different networks have crossed over – even in just a namedropping sense – in a major way.

The news comes courtesy of Decider, who claim that Marvel TV president Jeph Loeb confirmed at TCA 2017 that Runaways

Listen to the Haunting Theme Song For Netflix's Castlevania Animated Series

As we wait for the upcoming animated series adaptation of the Nintendo classic Castlevainia to be released, Netflix has shared the theme song for us to listen to. It's a haunting and eerie musical score that echo's the tone of the original Nes game music.

The score is called "The True Science" and it was created by composer Trevor Morris. He also did the music for the Marvel series Iron Fist. When talking to Nerdist about the working on the project, he said:

“Being asked to contribute to Castlevania was such a great call to get. As a composer it’s just a cool, colorful and interesting world to get into, and provides endless inspiration for music. It was just such a fun and cool project to work on, I could score Castlevania for years and years."

The writer of the series, Warren Ellis, added:

"Trevor is a master of his art: hugely innovative,

Cool Promo Art For Netflix's Castlevania Animated Series Was Inspired By the Original Nes Box Art

Some great new promo art has surfaced for Netflix's new animated Castlevania series. What I love about this is that it was awesomely inspired by the original Nes box art, only it's done in the same animation style as the game. The art features the main character Simon Belmont wielding his whip as he faces the castle in the distance, with Dracula looking over the sinister castle.

Last week the first trailer was released for the new series, which you need to check out here in case you missed it. This show looks like it's going to be so cool and the trailer definitely got me excited for it. I was such a huge fan of the original game and it's so fun to see this new series call back to that game that many of us grew up playing.

Wicked Cool First Trailer For Netflix's Castlevania Animated Series

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming Castlevania animated series and it's pretty exciting! This is the same series that's being developed by Adi Shankar (Dredd) and Fred Seibert (Fairly OddParents, Adventure Time). As you'll see, the show went with a beautiful anime art style to tell the story, which works perfectly for the property. It's been said that the series has a Game of Thrones vibe to it and it certainly shows in this trailer.

I'm a big fan of the Castlevania video game franchise and I can't wait to watch this cool looking series! Here's the synopsis:

Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company,

Marvel’s Runaways Gets Series Order By Hulu, First Official Poster!

Update: The official Runaways social media accounts released the first official poster for the show. Check it out below!

Original Story:

Marvel is continuing in its slow domination of the universe. It started modestly enough in 2008 with Iron Man, and has since taken over the cinemas in a huge way. Similarly, they’ve stretched their reach to the TV front, starting with networks like ABC. Soon after, it expanded to Netflix with shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones, among others (all of which will culminate in a Defenders series later this year). More recently, Marvel has turned to more specific targeting of their deomographics, with shows like Cloak and Dagger and New Warriors landing on the “tween” channel Freeform.

Marvel continues to spread the love with another of its shows that’s been in the works for some time: Runaways. The show follows a group of teens who find out that their parents are supervillains,

Details Revealed for Netflix's Castlevania Animated Series; It Will Have a Game Of Thrones Vibe

Yesterday Netflix announced that they will be releasing an animated series adaptation of the hit video game Castlevania later this year. As it turns out, this is indeed the animated project that Adi Shankar (Dredd) and Fred Seibert (Fairly OddParents, Adventure Time) were working on. So, it looks like the R-rated ultra-violent and dark take on the franchise is still in play.

Thanks to Shankar, we now have an official synopsis to share with you offering details on the story, and the producer also offers up some thoughts on what he's got cooking and boldly exclaims that Castlevania "will end the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation." Here's the synopsis:

Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself.

Marvel’S Runaways Cast & Character Descriptions Revealed!

Marvel has had an interesting run with their TV shows. While we had our doubts about how everything would turn out when it became clear that they’d have properties spread out across separate networks and streaming services, it all seems to be coming together. Rather than horde their franchises to the same safe, Disney-owned entity, they divvied up their properties based on demographic. The more general stuff would go on ABC, the adult stuff on Netflix, and the teen stuff would go on other services, like Hulu.

Their first foray into the more teen-centric space with Marvel’s Runaways. Don’t recognize the name? No worries. The I.P. has nowhere near the recognizability of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the like, but we’ve seen Marvel work wonders with relatively obscure characters and properties. At the end of the day, that red Marvel logo and overall execution

‘Legion’: Creator Noah Hawley on Taking FX Series Beyond X-Men

‘Legion’: Creator Noah Hawley on Taking FX Series Beyond X-Men
TV’s first live-action X-Men series does not have many X-Men in it. In fact, FX’s “Legion” pilot boasts only one character from the Marvel comic books about so-called mutants. There is no Magneto, no Jean Grey, no Wolverine. There is definitely no Deadpool. The word “mutant” isn’t even mentioned until halfway through the episode.

If “Legion,” which premieres Feb. 8, feels like a distant cousin to the movie franchise that has grossed almost $4.4 billion worldwide for Fox since the first “X-Men” premiered in 2000, that is by design.

The designer is Noah Hawley, the writer- showrunner who pulled off the impossible by adapting the Coen Brothers’ cult-classic film “Fargo” into a critically acclaimed television series. For his next trick, Hawley will attempt the unimaginable yet again: reinventing the superhero genre with a show about an obscure character plucked from the bowels of a franchise whose recent screen iterations have prompted whispers of fan fatigue.

Luke Cage: making a star of a lesser-known character

Mike Cecchini Sep 29, 2016

The creators of Marvel's Luke Cage discuss how they approached bringing the character to life on the small screen...

Luke Cage, Shades, Cottonmouth, or Mariah Dillard aren't the most high profile characters in the Marvel Universe, but most of us can remember a time when Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America were still considered second-stringers behind Spider-Man and the X-Men

Marvel's Netflix shows have been more than just mature, ambitious attempts at making the first genuine prestige superhero TV dramas, they're also about making household names of some of their lesser-known characters (and past McU gambles like Guardians Of The Galaxy have certainly proved they're more than capable of shining a spotlight on just about anyone).

We attended roundtable interviews with the cast and creative talent behind Marvel's Luke Cage at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel TV Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb and Theo Rossi - who

Progressivism is on the Rise in Superhero Comics

Not only does Steve Orlando’s Midnighter comic star a gay man, it tells blunt, sex-positive stories about that character. The main cast of characters in the upcoming main Avengers comic All-New, All-Different Avengers has only one white dude.

While there is still a lot of work on the road to a utopia of complete social justice, there is a trend of progressivism in some of today’s superhero comics that is impossible to ignore.

“There’s certainly a long way to go, but [the comics industry] is moving in the right direction,” said Orlando via phone interview on Oct. 23.

Books like Batgirl and Cyborg from DC Comics as well as Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and Ms. Marvel down the lane at Marvel coalesce to paint a picture of superhero comics that not only includes a solid focus on minority and women characters, but also features progressive themes concerning identity, racial justice, body image and more.
