Both Daredevil and Jessica Jones were based in Hell’s Kitchen, but perhaps after realizing that a neighborhood of one square mile can only sustain so many superheroes at a time, Netflix’s next Marvel hero is headed uptown. Luke Cage picks back up with the unbreakable badass we last saw in Jessica Jones. Nowadays, though, his concern is protecting his neighborhood of Harlem.
The show promises to feature a few familiar faces, like Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and of course Mike Colter as Luke Cage. But he’ll be making some new friends as well, like Simone Missick‘s Misty Knight, and facing off against a number of baddies including Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (Mahershala Ali), Shades (Theo Rossi), and Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard, playing a completely different MCU character from the one we saw in Captain America: Civil War). Watch the latest Luke Cage trailer below.

Don’t tell anyone, but my most highly anticipated Batman movie isn’t Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or even Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie. It’s The Lego Batman Movie, featuring Will Arnett as the grizzled and raspy voice of the Caped Crusader. I mean, who can who can resist a description like “About a Boy as directed by Michael Mann,” as director Chris McKay recently put it?
We first met the Arnett’s version of the character in 2014’s The Lego Movie, but the spinoff promises an even more up-close-and-personal look at the solitary vigilante. Following a first look at some Lego Batman Movie photos this week, Warner Bros. has dropped the very first The Lego Batman Movie trailer, and you can watch it after the jump.

“We’re making About a Boy as directed by Michael Mann.” If that quote doesn’t raise your hopes and dreams for The Lego Batman Movie, then what will? Funnily enough, both Christopher Nolan and The Lego Batman Movie director, Chris McKay, were inspired by Mann’s filmography for their Batman films — but obviously we should expect a slightly more comedic spin on the director’s crime movies in this instance.
The above quote comes from McKay, who describes this Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) as “an island onto himself.” Read what else McKay and Arnett had to say about the film, and check out the first The Lego Batman Movie images, below.

2016 may just be the year that the video game movie “curse” is broken once and for all. Assassin’s Creed has lined up a cast and crew that’d be the envy of most prestige dramas, Warcraft looks like a meticulously realized fantasy epic of staggering ambition, and even Angry Birds looks pretty damn cute.
Rounding out that roster now is Ratchet & Clank, the new film based on PlayStation’s hit game. The first trailer has just landed online, and it looks like an enjoyable all-ages ride. Watch the Ratchet and Clank trailer after the jump. Read More »

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 »
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.
