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 »

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: A Blind Superhero, a Ninja Assassin, and a Brutal Vigilante Walk Into Netflix…

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.

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.

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 »

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 »

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.

While we’ve been oohing and ahhing over the first look at Doctor Strange, the MCU’s TV side has also dropped some interesting new snapshots. Netflix’s Daredevil has just revealed its first official images, featuring two new key players for next season: Frank Castle a.k.a. Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal, and Elektra, played by Élodie Yung. Check ’em out after the jump. Read More »

Alex Proyas doesn’t make as many movies as we’d like to see from him. The director of Dark City and Knowing is a selective filmmaker. By studio filmmaking standards, he’s an ambitious director. Knowing may not be everyone’s favorite movie, but it does end with the destruction of Earth and the lead character dying, not saving the world. Proyas’ new film, Gods of Egypt, may be his biggest one yet, based on the plot synopsis, but our first glimpse at the project doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. Then again, these are just character posters.
Check out the Gods of Egypt character posters after the jump.

Hell’s Kitchen is getting crowded, and we’re not talking about the 150,000+ fans who flocked to the Javits Center for New York Comic Con this weekend. We’re talking about two heavyweight characters coming to Daredevil Season 2, set in a fictional (and far less gentrified) version of Hell’s Kitchen.
Marvel and Netflix unveiled the first teaser for the next run of Daredevil episodes at their NYCC panel, and included in it were our first looks at Elektra (Élodie Yung) and the Punisher (Jon Bernthal). Watch the Daredevil Season 2 teaser after the jump. Read More »
