The Law Is A Ass #443: Daredevil Has To Prove He’s The Devil You Know

  • Comicmix
How do you prove that you’re you?

Testimonials from family and friends. DNA tests. Those embarrassing Facebook photos that no one but you would ever post.

But how do you prove you’re you, if nobody other than you knows who you are?

That was the problem facing Daredevil in Daredevil v 5 #22. He had convinced a judge to let him testify in court against one Simon (Slug) Slugansky while still wearing his mask and without revealing his true identity. Okay, he hadn’t convinced the judge, Daredevil’s unrevealed secret identity of assistant district attorney Matt Murdock convinced the judge by way of a legal motion. How Matt did that, I don’t know, as I laid out in my last column. But he did. However, now, in order to testify, Daredevil had to convince the court that he really was Daredevil under that bright red costume, because, as the judge put it,

‘Jessica Jones’ Season 3 Ends With One Final Marvel Netflix Crossover

(Spoilers ahead for the season 3 finale of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” on Netflix)

“Jessica Jones” season 3 dropped on Netflix over the weekend — and with that, Netflix’s own ground-level section of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is over.

The season finale of “Jessica Jones” season 3 can function well enough as a series finale, but since it doesn’t involve any kind of big teamup among all the different heroes we’ve seen on these shows over the years — Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Colleen Wing, Misty Knight, the Punisher, etc. — it certainly doesn’t feel like a universe finale.

And that’s especially true because of the one major crossover this last season of “Jessica Jones” has to one of the other shows.

How Netflix Created an Unintentional Repertory Company

  • Variety
Taking a cue from the theater and the old Hollywood studio system, Netflix has built up an impressive stock company of actors since getting into original programming. But interestingly, it is more coincidence than intentional creation of a repertory company.

The streaming giant does not have a dedicated casting department at the network level. Instead, Netflix originals work with a variety of casting directors, and the repetition in hiring talent is more hard work on the actors’ parts, as well as a byproduct of the seemingly never-ending river of content across a variety of genres that the service produces.

That’s not to say actors on other streaming services do not appear in more than one show. For example, “Pen15” co-creators and lead actresses Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle have popped up on “Casual” and “Ramy,” respectively. Meanwhile on Amazon, Bryan Cranston has starred in and executive produced “Sneaky Pete

Emmys, Ugh: Daredevil's 11-Minute, 1-Take Fight Not Eligible in Stunt Race

Marvel’s Daredevil has been dealt another blow, six months after being cancelled over at Netflix. And this knockout punch comes at the hands of a 15.5-inch tall lady.

Season 3’s epic, nearly 11-minute, single-take prison riot right scene is not eligible for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie because — get this — it is too long.

Yep, per Emmy rules (shown below), stunt coordinators can submit a reel no more than three minutes in length. “The TV Academy would only allow a three minute clip, so, unfortunately, that epic oner was not eligible to be shown for stunts consideration,

Jessica Jones Season 3: Who is Erik Gelden?

Marc Buxton Jun 17, 2019

Jessica Jones Season 3 introduces the mysterious Erik, a new love interest. And yes, he has a Marvel Comics history.

This article contains extraordinarily mild Jessica Jones Season 3 spoilers. We have a spoiler free review here if you prefer.

Erik Gelden. Wiseass. Small time gambler. Petty criminal. Burger expert. Supervillain?

Well, not exactly. But Jessica Jones' new love interest with some low level mental superpowers actually has his roots in the pages of Marvel Comics. Erik was a small-timer known as Mind-Wave, a little known Daredevil villain who has a, shall we say, very strange history. Mind-Wave was created by Marv Wolfman, Bob Brown, and Jim Mooney and first appeared in Daredevil #133 (1976). Real name Erik/Mind-Wave used a helmet of his own creation to enhance his innate Esp abilities. The helmet allowed him to hear the thoughts of those around him and allows the villain to predict the action of anyone he battles.

Krysten Ritter on ‘Ambiguous’ Ending for ‘Jessica Jones’ and ‘Baby Steps of Emotional Growth’
(Warning: The following story contains spoilers about the entirety of “Jessica Jones” season 3)

“Jessica Jones,” which debuted its third and final season on Netflix Friday, gets to do something that no other Marvel/Netflix series got to: Actually craft an ending.

“We didn’t get canceled in the middle of the night as a shock,” star Krysten Ritter told TheWrap. “This show is deeply personal and has been a psychological character study of Jessica Jones. We’ve spent a lot of time with her and I think that this length of storytelling is perfect and fitting.”

By now, it’s known that Netflix pulled the plug on the four-year partnership with Marvel that began with 2015’s “Daredevil” (more on that here), but Ritter said that they were lucky enough to know that their show wasn’t going to continue past its third season. Even before the show began production, it

Jessica Jones Gets a Hunky New Love Interest in Season 3 - Say Hello to Erik

Jessica Jones Gets a Hunky New Love Interest in Season 3 - Say Hello to Erik
Just in time for Jessica Jones to go off the air, the series has introduced a hunky new love interest for its ass-kicking heroine. Because, of course.

The show has returned for a third and final outing, which sees Jessica facing off against a truly terrifying serial killer who manages to stab her in the abdomen within the first episode. Not exactly the type of guy you want handling your kitchen knifes, you know? Erik, on the other hand, is totally ready and willing to use those knives to make you the best burger you've ever had . . . and potentially also blackmail you for thousands of dollars. It's really a toss-up with him. However, since Jessica isn't pure, straight-up evil, Erik is able to put his evil-sensing superpower to rest, and the pair make a surprisingly good couple.

Erik isn't a new character in the Marvel universe, either; he actually exists in the comics.

Farewell, Jessica Jones: the last woman standing in the Marvel-Netflix era

With Marvel’s owner, Disney, preparing its own streaming service, Netflix is throwing in the towel. But Krysten Ritter’s street-level superhero always knew how to have the last word

Marvel’s sprawling legion of big-screen heroes managed to bounce back from an extremely debilitating encounter with Thanos. But on the small screen, a much tighter cadre of grounded vigilantes have not been so lucky. Netflix’s experiment with Marvel characters ends today with the launch of the third and final season of Jessica Jones, the hard-living private eye played by Krysten Ritter whose uncanny abilities include hugely enhanced strength and nuclear-level eye-rolling.

It pulls the plug on a headlong universe-building exercise that, from a seemingly standing start, produced an impressive 13 seasons of TV in just four years, encompassing the overlapping adventures of blind butt-kicker Daredevil (three seasons), bulletproof charmer Luke Cage (two), gap-year mystic Iron Fist (two), gung ho

How Netflix’s Marvel TV Heroes Were Defeated by the Changing Media Business

  • The Wrap
Netflix’s street-level Marvel TV heroes have bested villains like The Kingpin, Kilgrave and The Hand, but in the end, Jessica Jones and the rest of The Defenders encountered one enemy they were no match for: the media industry.

On Friday, Netflix will debut the third and final season of “Jessica Jones” — the final season of any of its Marvel TV superheroes — ending a partnership that once looked to be as long-lasting as the Marvel’s big-screen McU. But while Marvel TV chief Loeb promised a “very satisfying ending to that particular story,” the rest of Marvel’s Netflix universe is going to be left hanging.

“We didn’t know, when we were making that show, that even ‘Daredevil’ had been canceled,” Loeb told TheWrap last month. “At that point, we knew we had lost ‘Iron Fist,’ but other than that, we were living under the impression that this was going to go on.

‘Jessica Jones’ Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg on Crafting a Satisfying Ending for the Series

‘Jessica Jones’ Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg on Crafting a Satisfying Ending for the Series
The protagonist of “Jessica Jones” may have enhanced strength and a limited ability to fly, but superpowers have never been the most compelling part of the celebrated Netflix series. The show, which follows former superhero Jessica Jones’ (Krysten Ritter) efforts to run a detective agency and deal with her past demons, received critical acclaim in its first season for fearlessly addressing heavy topics in a genre that’s become decidedly family-friendly in recent years.

While comics, including “Jessica Jones,” often embrace mature themes, most comic-based films and television shows in the last decade have stayed firmly within PG-13 territory. “Jessica Jones,” like Marvel’s other Netflix shows, bucked that trend several years before R-rated superhero flicks such as “Deadpool” and “Logan” hit theaters.

Though “Jessica Jones,” showrunner Melissa Rosenberg always intended for the series, which premieres its third and final season on Netflix Friday, June 14, to be dark entertainment, she

‘Jessica Jones’ Series Creator Says Knowledge Of Cancellation Allowed For “Closure” & A “Satisfying” Ending

‘Jessica Jones’ Series Creator Says Knowledge Of Cancellation Allowed For “Closure” & A “Satisfying” Ending
For the bulk of the series in the Netflix/Marvel partnership, the eventual cancellation came as a surprise. None of the actors or behind-the-scenes people really had any clue that the last season would, indeed, be the final one. This has left “Daredevil,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” and “The Punisher” with the feeling of being incomplete. However, for “Jessica Jones,” the series creator Melissa Rosenberg was given a bit of time before the release of Season 3 to somehow craft a finale that felt right.

Stan Lee May Cameo In Marvel’s Avengers Video Game

Going back years, it’s become expected that True Believers be treated to a Stan Lee cameo whenever the latest film based on a Marvel property hits theaters. Granted, it hasn’t happened in every instance, but we’re all guaranteed to smile whenever “The Man” suddenly pops up as some random character. Whether it be in a production from either Disney, Fox or Sony, there was always a chance for the legend stopping by.

Unfortunately, the recently released Endgame was the last cameo Stan was able to put in before his untimely passing. Still, the possibility remains that we may see him once the much buzzed about Marvel’s Avengers video game drops next year.

While speaking with creative director Bill Rosemann, Gamespot asked him whether Lee’s virtual counterpart will appear in Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ interactive adventure just as he did in Spider-Man’s Playstation 4 opus. Although

X-Men producer disowns Dark Phoenix, The New Mutants, and Apocalypse

Lauren Shuler Donner, a longtime producer for the X-Men franchise has publicly disavowed X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Apocalypse, and New Mutants.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix isn’t performing as well as its makers would have liked, not hitting the mark with critics or at the box office. The dissatisfaction has gone so far that even a producer for the X-Men franchise, Lauren Shuler Donner, has washed her hands of the film, as well as Apocalypse and the upcoming New Mutants.

Yesterday she tweeted (via Cbm): “Save your condolences. I had zero, nothing to do with Dark Phoenix. Or Apocalypse, or New Mutants.”

The producer has since deleted the tweet but replies to other users about The New Mutants were left up: “It might be really good! I don’t know,” and, “Hoping New Mutants is wonderful. Looking forward to seeing it one day.”

Fox planned to make a Civil War-style Marvel crossover featuring X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic Four and Daredevil

It was frequently rumoured over the years that 20th Century Fox would look to bring the Children of the Atom and Marvel’s First Family together for an X-Men vs. Fantastic Four crossover/shared universe, and while this ultimately never came to fruition, it has now been revealed that plans for such an event movie were in motion at one point – and would have also featured the characters of Daredevil and Deadpool.

“My ex-partner and I, when we were working at Fox and we were working on X-Men: First Class, we did a secret movie for them that, I can’t tell you what the plot was, but I can tell you that it used all of the characters, all of the Marvel characters that Fox had at the time in 2011,” revealed screenwriter Zack Stentz in an interview on Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman podcast. “It used the X-Men.

Story Details Surface for Fox's Unproduced X-men Vs. Fantastic Four Movie

Not long ago we learned that 20th Century Fox was developing a big Marvel crossover event film that would have brought together the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and Daredevil. X-Men: First Class writer Zack Stentz was hired to write the script for the film, and he’s the one who revealed that the studios was looking to develop it with director Paul Greengrass.

Thanks to THR, we now have some details regarding the story that this film would have told, and it would have pitted the X-Men against the Fantastic Four. They would have had their own little Civil War going on. Here are the details:

In 2010, according to our secret sources, Fox considered building toward a crossover movie that would have pitted the X-Men against the Fantastic Four (think of it as a Civil War for the Fox/Marvel characters). The studio enlisted First Class screenwriters Ashley Edward Miller

Review: Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

  • Comicmix
Surprising to some, Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have some commonalities. After all, the half-shell heroes were initially created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird as a parody of Frank Miller’s work on Daredevil, before coming to DC and turning his talents to The Dark Knight. Both properties work best in the shadows and had the producers of this animated adventure leaned into that, this could have been a cut above an obvious cash grab.

The participants have met before, in three miniseries from DC Comics and Idw in addition to one strictly set in their “Adventures” incarnations, aimed more at all-ages readers. Now, we have Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a briskly paced story. It’s not bad, but boy, it could have been so much more had anyone made an effort.

Here’s What Fox’s Abandoned ‘X-Men vs. Fantastic Four’ Movie Would Have Been About

The Law Is A Ass #442: Daredevil Shouldn’t Give A Testimony-Al

  • Comicmix
It’s nice to know Daredevil paid attention. I just wish he had stayed for the whole lecture.

For as long as there have been costumed heroes, there’s been the problem of what do those heroes do with the bad guys after the heroes catch them. Mostly they just left the bad guys behind for the police to arrest and hoped that the criminal justice system would sort it all out. As I have mentioned in the past, that wouldn’t work.

When the costumed hero was the only witness to the bad guys’ badness – as was frequently the case – the criminal justice system would need the costumed hero to testify. And that could be problematic. Problematic? Compared to that task, booking Alexander Hamilton himself to join the touring national company of Hamilton is just problematic.

Nevertheless, in Daredevil Vol 5 #22, Matt Murdock, Daredevil’s secret identity and an assistant district attorney,
