Not only is 2015 going to bring us two new Marvel Studios movies, we get at least two (and maybe more) brand new Marvel TV shows. The first comes upon us pretty quickly, Agent Carter. A few months later, a full season of Daredevil will be available on Netflix. Daredevil, which stars Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio and others, is the first of four Netflix Marvel shows that will eventually lead to The Defenders.
Outside of that, we don’t know a ton about the show. That’s starting to change, however. In a new piece by Entertainment Weekly, head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and Cox offer up some new info on the show. We find out a bit about its tone, its Marvel Cinematic Universe connections, important of the evil Kingpin and the likelihood we’ll see another villain, Bullseye, at some point. Read the Daredevil Netflix update below. Read More »

Marvel brought the cast of Daredevil to the New York Comic Con today. Along with the debut of some Con-only footage, they offered up the first official photos of Charlie Cox as Daredevil. One (above) shows him in Matt Murdock mode, while the other shows a first-gen Daredevil costume. While we can’t show you any footage just yet, there’s a lot of other info from the panel to pass along. One tidbit is the identity of the character played by Rosario Dawon, as well as the casting choices for a whole host of additional Daredevil players. Get the first look at Daredevil below, along with a lot more info.
Update: We’ve got a bunch of panel video from New York Comic Con, so you can see the cast and creators talking about the show.

UPDATE: This story has now been confirmed by Variety. Minor changes have been made to reflect that fact.
The man without fear has a new persona. Marvel’s Daredevil, coming to Netflix in 2015, recently switched showrunners from Drew Goddard to Steven S. DeKnight. The latter’s first big decision is who will play the title character and he’s chosen another TV veteran. Charlie Cox, who played the lead in Matthew Vaughn’s Stardust, and an Irish badass on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, is set to play the role. Read More »
It’s been almost a year since we heard anything about Killing Bono. Last time we checked in on the film, Nick Hamm was about to direct Ben Barnes, Krysten Ritter, Robert Sheehan, Charlie Cox and Jason Byrne in the movie based on Neil McCormick‘s book about being in a band that struggled in the shadow of U2 during the mega-band’s formative years.
Now the film is done and there is a trailer, which you can see after the break. Read More »
Fair warning: this teaser trailer for Roland Joffe‘s Spanish Civil War tale There Be Dragons has actually been online since the summer, but we’d completely missed its existence until the recent launch of a new website to promote the film. Joffe’s film sounds superficially like it falls right into the middle of a classic conceit: we see two brothers, one of whome becomes a priest, the other a fascist spy.
But the movie is also about St. Josemaría Escrivá, founder of the Catholic organization Opus Dei, aka ‘work of God,’ which ” teaches that everyone is called to holiness and that ordinary life is a path to sanctity.” And in case that’s a turn-off (it shouldn’t be!) the trailer looks purdy.

It’s rare that I look at a TV project and wish that it were a $100m theatrical production instead of a much smaller television affair. I like seeing what creative teams can do with ingenuity rather than money, so almost never think something should be more expensive. But I do wish the $25m television version of Moby Dick, currently shooting, had more cash to work with. Oceangoing stories look amazing on the big screen, and we get so few of them. Still, with the cast assembled for this version of Herman Melville’s novel, I’ll take what I can get. Read More »

Is this the new poster for the big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust? Not exactly. This poster image appeared in this weekend’s LA Times Sunday edition (via KungFuVideo). I have heard nothing but incredible things about Gaiman’s work. My only exposure has been Mirrormask, which I’ve been told is not an accurate indication of his work. Check out some of our previous Stardust coverage: Movie Trailer (HD available), Unofficial Movie Trailer, 30 Production Photos. You can also click on the image to the right to see a much larger version.
Stardust follows a young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) who tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village.
Stardust hits theaters on July 27th 2007.
