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 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 »
For months, Marvel has been very circumspect about showing off the final costume design for Daredevil. That changed last week as the Netflix series prepped to launch on the streaming service, and with all episodes now available there’s no shortage of ways to see the final suit. But Marvel and Netflix are trying to keep the reveal in hand by offering up a couple of official images — at least one of which you’ve probably already seen on the show’s launch page within Netflix. See the Daredevil final costume shots below. Read More »
Unless you’re Joss Whedon, many Marvel fans spent their weekend binging on the first Netflix series, Daredevil. We’ve posted a few thoughts on the series and will have more soon as everyone catches up on the superhero show.
One of those fans who got to watch the series was another Marvel director, James Gunn. Gunn is a longtime Daredevil fan and, like many people, felt a bit skeptical about the show at first. Well, that changed when he watched the first few episodes and Gunn took to Facebook to heap praise on the show. Read the James Gunn Daredevil quotes below. Read More »
One of our favorite moments from Daredevil is the climactic fight sequence which ends Episode 2. Its probably my favorite television action sequence in recent years. So when I got a chance to talk to the cast and crew of Daredevil, all I wanted to know was how they pulled off that sequence. For those of you who haven’t yet watched the Netflix television series, the second episode ends with Daredevil in full vigilante mode, attempting to break into a baddie’s hideout to save someone.
The sequence lasts five and a half minutes long, with a three-minute fight in the middle, and is incredibly well choreographed. When I first saw it I almost stopped breathing as I realized the beauty of this single take. I’ll admit, it looks like the shot could be visually stitched together using three different takes (as was done in Birdman) but and according to those involved, the fight scene you see is the result of one lone single shot. Lets find out how they did that Daredevil fight scene, after the jump.
