Marvel’s first Netflix show, Daredevil, will show up on the service April 10. And Marvel just cast Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones for AKA Jessica Jones and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. That may sound like those two shows are coming soon. Plus, there was a rumor that Jessica Jones would be out by the end of 2015. Unfortunately, the Chief Content Officer of Netfix, Ted Sarandos, doused those dreams a bit when he said audiences should expect new Marvel shows about a year apart.
Sarandos has since eased up on that window a bit but it sounds like you shouldn’t rush through Daredevil too fast because the wait could be long before we get to the final shows. Read more about the potential Marvel Netflix series release dates below. Read More »

If you watched the Ant-Man trailer all the way to the end, you probably noticed they urged people to pick up the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly for more information on the film. The cover is already out there; now, so is the magazine, which includes some new images and information. The images aren’t major (though there is a cool Yellowjacket concept image that’s sure to pop online soon) but the info about the movie is. Kevin Feige talks about the Edgar Wright split, Rudd discusses how much of Wright’s work is still in the film, and one revelation includes how the shrinking scenes are done. See the new Ant-Man photos and read the info below.
Update: The Yellowjacket image is online now, along with another piece of concept art featuring tiny Ant-Man. We’ve added those below.

One of the coolest things about watching a new Marvel show or movie is finding the links to the universe. Both the movies and TV shows build these bridges on occasion. This week’s Agent Carter was no exception. There were a ton of links to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, mostly centered on Captain America: The First Avenger. But there was also a pretty huge link to Iron Man 2. Did you catch it? Read about the Agent Carter Iron Man 2 easter egg below. Read More »
The Marvel TV Universe might still be buzzing over the premiere of Agent Carter, but don’t forget her modern-day counterparts. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is coming back in March with a storyline that’s beginning to tease at Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If that wasn’t enough, they’ve just added a very recognizable sci-fi face.
Edward James Olmos, the Oscar-nominated actor best known for his starring roles on the recent Battlestar Galactica and in Blade Runner, has joined the Marvel show in a large, recurring role. Read more about the Edward James Olmos Marvel casting below. Read More »
Ant-Man and Fantastic Four open within three weeks of each other this summer so their post-production schedules are pretty much on the same track. We just got an Ant-Man trailer, and should get a Fantastic Four trailer during the Super Bowl if rumors turn out true. Plus, behind the scenes, each film just officially announced a key member of the creative team: the composer.
On Fantastic Four, which is directed by Josh Trank, they’ve hired Marco Beltrami. He’s no stranger to the superhero genre having scored The Wolverine, Hellboy and Blade II. Recently, he did the score for Snowpiercer but is probably best known for his work on the Scream movies.
For Ant-Man, directed by Peyton Reed, Christophe Beck will provide the score. He too has worked in the superhero genre before, with Red and R.I.P.D, but has also worked with Reed before on Bring it On and recently did Edge of Tomorrow and Frozen.
