Believe it or not, Inspector Gadget is over 30 years old at this point — he first came into being as an animated show from the mid-’80s. But older doesn’t always mean wiser, and that goes double in the case of this bionic detective. In the first trailer for Netflix’s new Inspector Gadget series, he proves to be as embarrassingly incompetent as ever.
Lucky for him, no one around him has changed much either. His much more capable niece Penny is still happy to help, as is her dog Brain, and Quimby (for some reason) continues to rely on him. Watch the new Inspector Gadget trailer after the jump. Read More »

The internet did backflips when word came out weeks ago that Netflix would be developing a TV series based on Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda game series. Nintendo is famously protective of its properties, especially in the wake of the Super Mario Brothers movie. There has been a Zelda animated series, but that was quite a while ago; to date, nothing has been adapted to live-action following Mario. So the Zelda TV show was big news.
But even with that original announcement we cautioned that Nintendo could follow through on that protectiveness and pull the plug on the potential series. Now Nintendo chief Satoru Iwata has thrown some real shade on talk of the Zelda TV show, saying it was all based on wrong info. Read More »
When Daredevil hits Netflix on April 10 we’ll see just what Marvel’s first foray into streaming television really looks like. But a set of “motion posters” advertising the show has steadily shown us more details of this take on New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, and the blind hero who patrols its streets at night.
The latest Daredevil motion poster is packed with small details — the show’s major characters all make appearances, and there are plenty of little background details to pore over. “Little” ones, like Avengers tower. And, more importantly, is that a reflection of Daredevil’s red suit, or at least a different suit than the one we’ve seen? Looks like it could be, perhaps. Read More »

In official images from two upcoming Marvel properties, we’re not seeing things that we’re used to seeing with the characters. There’s Netflix’s Daredevil, where we’ve see Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) in a simple, black costume. Then there’s Fox’s Fantastic Four, where the characters have so far been seen in functional, flexible suits. The link between the two is that neither project features the primary costumes we know from the comic books: the red Daredevil suit and the brighter blue Fantastic Four outfits with a big “4” on the chest.
Well, according to people involved with both projects, all those costumes will be in their respective projects. And while the Daredevil suit isn’t that surprising, the Fantastic Four one is.
