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. Read more about the Daredevil and Fantastic Four movie costumes below, plus see a new motion video from Daredevil. Read More »

Buried in the otherwise unremarkable Avengers: Age of Ultron poster unveiled last month was a surprising credit for Danny Elfman for providing “additional material.” The composer’s name got fans buzzing about the hows and whys of his involvement, with some speculating it had to do with Spider-Man‘s impending arrival within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Well, Elfman has now spoken up to set the record straight, and it doesn’t have anything to do with his earlier work for Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man films. Find out what the Danny Elfman Avengers connection is after the jump. Read More »
Update: Yahoo has released the first Community season 6 clip, we’ve added that after the jump.
Greendale Community College is opening its doors once again, and you can see the Community S6 trailer via the show’s new home… at Yahoo. The former NBC sitcom movies to Yahoo for it’s unlikely but possibly always-destined new season, and this first trailer teases not only the pilot, but seemingly the much of the first half of the season.
You’ve got Paget Brewster introduced as “the new Shirley,” and Keith David dropping the best Ghostbusters joke I’ve heard this year. (By the way, Keith David! Reason enough to watch right there.) And of course most of the show’s familiar characters are on hand to lend their own notes to the manic proceedings. Oh, and the whole trailer is an Avengers trailer parody, kind of, as if that image above didn’t clue you in. Watch the Community season 6 trailer below. Read More »
