Rosario Dawson Daredevil

One of the best performers in Daredevil is returning to the show for season two. Sure, Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio both impressed in their roles as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk, respectively, but Rosario Dawson brought an unparalleled spark to her scenes. There wasn’t enough of her in the first season, as her character Claire Temple came and went over the course of thirteen episodes. But we’ll see more of her soon enough, as Dawson’s deal with Netflix also suggests she’ll appear in the rest of Marvel’s Netflix series, too.  Read More »

Tom Hardy as The Punisher

Everyone is still talking about The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Whether it’s Hulk’s best scene being cut out of the film or an abandoned subplot with Thor getting axed, there’s a lot to talk about regarding the Marvel Studios sequel. And while the chatter surrounding the Netflix series Daredevil has subsided, there are still fans eagerly awaiting the second season of the show who hope to see the forthcoming assembly of The Defenders take on another familiar Marvel character.

The Punisher is a force to be reckoned with in Marvel comics, and fans hope to see him battle Daredevil and The Defenders eventually. Undoubtedly, that would be a cool development. But even cooler is the prospect of seeing Tom Hardy as The Punisher. And it’s not entirely out of the question, because the actor just revealed that he would love to play the vigilante for Marvel.

new Daredevil movie

Daredevil, the first of five Marvel Netflix series, has arrived to stream, and many of you have probably already devoured the entire series. There’s even a second-series order in place, and dreams on the part of star Charlie Cox of appearing in one of the big-screen Marvel adventures.

But if Avengers mastermind Joss Whedon had his way, we would have seen a new Daredevil movie go straight to the theater. He pushed for a film rather than a TV series, and in a way, it’s all about Batman. Because it’s always about Batman. Read More »

Netflix ratings

One of the great mysteries of Netflix is how many people are watching. We know there are over 40 million domestic subscribers, but what those people are actually watching, and when, is something only the company itself knows. Netflix does not share ratings data. As streaming becomes more and more prominent, however, ratings are something many people are curious about. Now one company is offering up data on how many people are watching stuff on Netflix… with a major caveat.

A San Diego-based company called Luth Research has put together a large sample of test subjects (about 2,500) that allows them to gauge what and when people are watching on Netflix. Their research, however, only accounts for people who are watching directly on Netflix, meaning on your computer, phone or tablet. Anyone watching through another service – a gaming system, an internet-enabled TV, a Roku – is not counted.

So what were the results? Below, find out the rough first Netflix ratings for Daredevil, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bloodline and more. Read More »

superhero tv infographic

As big as the superhero renaissance is at the movie theater, TV is at the very least matching it. In fact, it’s probably beating it.

At least ten superhero shows are either currently on the air, coming soon, or recently finished including Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Supergirl, and Constantine. And that doesn’t even count the upcoming Flash/Arrow spin-off, a potential Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D spin-off, the other Marvel Netflix shows and many more.

Every one of these shows has its fans and detractors, but very few people have looked at the current superhero TV show as a whole. The Daily Dot did and realized that all of these shows have a lot in common. To make the point, they created an easily digestible illustration. Check out the superhero TV infographic below.

Daredevil season 2

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 »
