Daredevil has been streaming on Netflix for just about two weeks, and evidently is doing well enough to warrant continuation. Netflix just gave the green light to Daredevil season 2, with plans to air in 2016. But there’s a big change. Steven DeKnight is out as showrunner due to “previous commitments,” and Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will jointly take on the showrunner role in his stead. Read More »
Last week was a weird one for Zack Snyder and his film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film’s first trailer was briefly teased on Instagram, then released online in low-quality bootleg form, forcing Warner Bros. to officially release the trailer days in advance of its planned theatrical IMAX debut. (That’s still happening tonight.) But that’s all out there now, so we’ll just move forward. Now you can get a look at the primary Batman v Superman costumes thanks to a video featuring NBA star DeAndre Jordan checking out a Warner Bros. exhibit of the suits and new Batmobile.
UPDATE: B-Roll footage has now been put online with a much more detailed look at the costumes. Read More »
For ten movies we’ve been waiting to see an entire movie of the Avengers being “The Avengers.” Sure, we’ve seen some crossovers. We’ve seen what the team could do when aliens invaded. We’ve even seen an alien pseudo-Avengers assemble in Guardians of the Galaxy. But up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, we haven’t seen what would happen if six amazing superheroes spent an entire movie together, working together.
For that reason alone, Joss Whedon‘s Avengers Age of Ultron is satisfying. Beyond that, it a falls a little bit short of its amazing predecessor. When compared to the first film, Age of Ultron is more even, constantly exciting and surprising. There are huge laughs, there’s drama, some real character development, and some absolutely crazy action. That consistency almost makes up for the fact the film lacks the “Wow” moments of the first movie and that brand new feeling we got the first time.
Nevertheless, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a blast. Read the rest of our Avengers Age of Ultron review below. Read More »
Three things are certain in life. Death, taxes, and Internet trailer parodies. The instant a big film trailer hits the web, you know hundreds of people start working on different parodies, memes, and whatever else they can come up with. In the past week, two of the year’s biggest trailers came online: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, so too came the parodies.
For Batman v Superman, Screen Junkies did an Honest Trailer version of the trailer, and someone else re-edited the footage with shots of Christopher Reeve and Adam West to give it a retro feel. Check out the Batman v Superman trailer parodies below. Read More »

In typical fashion, Marvel Studios has put up a bunch of billboards to advertise its upcoming superhero movie, Ant-Man. In less typical fashion, these billboards are sized not for normal men, but for Ant-Men. That is, they’re freaking tiny. Read More »
UPDATE: Marvel has confirmed this report. Read the official press release below.
We just talked about the fact that Captain Marvel didn’t make an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in part because the character isn’t cast or quite defined yet, and over the weekend we reported that the Captain Marvel screenwriters would be announced soon. Now we’ve got the names Marvel is trying to lock in, and they make an interesting new team: Nicole Perlman, who wrote the draft of Guardians of the Galaxy that got that movie on track, and Meg LeFauve, who co-wrote Pixar’s Inside Out.
