The Defenders Trailer

Though Marvel fans may be eager to see the likes of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist team up for the first assembly of The Defenders in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the characters themselves don’t seem to be eager to be part of a team.

A new trailer for the first season of Netflix’s latest Marvel series brings all the heroes from their individual shows together to take on a larger threat in the form of Sigourney Weaver. With the series debut just around the corner, one more trailer has surfaced online, showing the street-level heroes enjoying a quick bite to eat before being thrust into action again. Watch below!

The Hitman's Bodyguard trailer 3

The buddy movie formula can encompass far more than just mismatched police officers who inevitably have to partner up with each other. Writers just need to make sure two characters who hate each other’s guts are forced to spend a lot of time in close quarters, and the latest trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard shows that there’s at least one iteration of the formula that we haven’t seen play out on the big screen quite yet. But why would a hitman need a bodyguard? Because he’s a key witness in a trial against one of the world’s worst dictators. Um, sure…I guess I can buy that. No one ever promised every instance of this formula had to make perfect sense.

Elektra Will Return in ‘The Defenders’

Defenders Elektra

So far, most of the Defenders casting announcements have concerned sidekicks and allies that any Netflix-Marvel fan might have reasonably guessed would return. But today’s announcement seems like a more interesting twist. Elodie Yung, who made her debut as Matt Murdock’s former flame Elektra in Daredevil season two, will reprise her role for the superhero team-up series.  Read More »

Daredevil Season 2 release date

We’re just days away from the second season of Daredevil, and by now you probably already know whether you’re in or you’re out. If you tore through season one and can’t wait to return to Hell’s Kitchen, you’ve surely cleared your weekend schedule so you can binge without restriction; if you didn’t care for season one, you probably haven’t bothered keeping up with all the updates on season two anyway.

But just in case a few of you need a nudge into the “in” column, Netflix and Marvel are getting in one last Daredevil trailer just under the wire. And yes, it’s got plenty of Jon Bernthal as the new Punisher and Elodie Yung as the new Elektra. Stick (Scott Glenn), Claire (Deborah Ann Woll), and Foggy (Elden Henson) all make appearances as well. Oh, and Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is there, too. Watch the Daredevil season 2 final trailer after the jump.  Read More »

daredevil season 2 teaser

Daredevil season 2 arrives on Netflix in a little over a week and I’m already planning to binge the entire thing in a sitting or two. After all, I’m still high over how much I enjoyed Jessica Jones and the early reviews for this new season suggest that everything that worked about about the first 13 episodes continues to work here. Heck, I’m already planning to have a deep dive on the entire season ready to go the Monday after the premiere. I do this because I care.

And I also do this because there’s a lot of promising stuff going on in Daredevil this season, especially the additions of Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle and Elodie Yung‘s Elektra to the cast. A new teaser has arrived highlighting these new additions, giving us a nice look at their costumes and offering everyone in the comments section something new to fight about.

punisher costume

The first season of Netflix’s Daredevil took ages to put Charlie Cox in costume, only giving the devil of Hell’s kitchen proper superhero duds in the season finale (and for a single action scene). And even then, the outfit was controversial, with some fans grumbling that he should have just stuck with the pirate pajamas look from the rest of the season.

The mixed reactions to Matt Murdock’s uniform haven’t stopped fans from wondering if season two’s new characters, Frank Castle (better known as the Punisher) and Elektra Natchios (better known as, uh, Elektra) would get to wear their classic costumes. A newly released poster answers that question: yes. For the most part.

Daredevil Season 2 Trailer

Keen observers probably noticed that the previous trailer for the second season of Daredevil had the designation of being “part one” and now we know why. A second trailer for the new season of the Marvel Studios TV series has just arrived, and just like the first one was all about The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) coming to town. This one brings us a full plate of Elektra Natchios (Elodie Young), who breaks into Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) apartment in order to meet him. Read More »

Gods of Egypt Super Bowl Spot

If Gerard Butler screaming as a power-hungry god along with tons of crazy creatures flying around and destroying things doesn’t get you interested in Alex Proyas‘ action epic, then nothing will. Lionsgate has just debuted a 60-second Super Bowl spot for Gods of Egypt, attempting to get the crowd that loves both football and 300 on board this positively insane looking movie. There’s a good chance it just might work. Watch the Gods of Egypt Super Bowl spot after the jump. Read More »

Daredevil Elektra

Netflix had two Marvel panels for the Television Critics Association, one for Jessica Jones and another for Daredevil. In between panels, Marvel Television Head Jeph Loeb spoke with reporters about the shows. Season two of Daredevil introduces Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) and there is already talk of Bernthal getting his own The Punisher series. There is still a second season of Jessica Jones and launches of Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders on the plate, but Loeb is open to spinning off Castle.

After the jump, read Loeb’s comments on a possible Punisher spinoff series — and learn more about what Daredevil‘s other major new character, Elektra, will be up to in season two.
