The Defenders are here! Here we get a good look at what the show is going to be giving us over 8 episodes. And thank goodness, because these 13 episode long shows are starting to drain me. But let’s talk about what we saw here and figure out whether or not we’re going to be excited!
3 trailers in one day? Thank you SDCC!
Before I begin, I need to say the following.... THIS WILL HAVE SPOILERS!! DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!
OK, you ready? I'm not going to go into details about each and every episode, but I will be going into some of the main story-lines and some key points.
Deep in the darkness of late Thursday night/Friday morning, Netflix released the much anticipated follow up season to Daredevil. It also surprised Netflix subscribers with a first look at the upcoming series, Luke Cage.
Last week we got our very first full look at what's to come for the second season of Daredevil. Today, we got part two of that trailer and this one features more Elektra!
Yesterday, Marvel sent out a tweet letting us know that a new trailer was coming (see below for said tweet). They did not disappoint!
Earlier this week rumors started swirling about the release date for Daredevil season two. The internet was in an uproar because the rumor floating about said that it would debut the same night as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This, of course, sparked the Marvel vs DC war again and now we know...it was all for nothing. Netflix and Marvel announced today that all 13 episodes of season two of Daredevil will hit Netflix on March 18th! They also included a new poster and teaser for the upcoming season!
Marvel's Daredevil was a huge hit. It captivated me throughout all thirteen binge-worthy episodes. It was a different view in the Marvel Universe. It gave us a look at the darker side of being a street level hero. Marvel's Jessica Jones takes that even further. Krysten Ritter portrays the angry and "thirsty" private detective Jessica Jones who is thrust into searching for a young girl named Hope. And that's our introduction into her world. Jessica's world is a dark world, and this show is very dark. It's not your usual Marvel production. There's violence, which we saw in Daredevil, but then there's sex. And not just once or twice, the adult content pops up a few times, so be warned. This show is not for the young ones.
During NYCC this past weekend, the fine fine people of Marvel Studios and Netflix decided to debut a new trailer for Marvel's Daredevil. Call it a sizzle reel, with glowing reviews of the first season, but what came next was a surprise. We got our first look at season two and with that our first looks at Elektra and Punisher!
With filming for season two of the monstrous Netflix hit Marvel's Daredevil beginning today, we were bound to get some set photos, or rumors to begin buzzing. We found out a few weeks ago that Punisher would be making his debut in the sophomore season, and now we know he's not alone. Word surfaces that Elektra Natchios has been cast and that Elodie Yung would portray the marital arts expert.
With the first season of Daredevil being an instant smash hit, it comes as no surprise that Netflix has approved a second season that will debut sometime in 2016. Marvel reports that not only will the show make its return next year, but it'll be getting new show runners with Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and American Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) taking over for Steven S. DeKnight, who cannot stay with the show as he's got a scheduling conflict.
With Daredevil having been a complete and udder success (in this writer's humble opinion, see my review), production for the second Marvel series under the Defenders banner is under way. Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones has begun filming and some images from the set have emerged on Twitter and Instagram:
April 10th, 2015 was a momentous day. Netflix and Marvel gave us all thirteen episodes of the first Marvel series to hit the streaming service, Daredevil. The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and is just the beginning of a universe designed for Netflix but one that is still tied in with the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. Eventually we'll see A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron First and finally The Defenders. All of that will come in time, today I'm here to tell you what I thought of the first season of Daredevil and yes...it did wash away that horrible taste of the Ben Affleck film of the same name.
This will be the year of Comic Book TV shows. We've had shows in the past, notably Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, and Smallville. More recently we have Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but this year we will see Gotham, Constantine, and The Flash join the fold. Netflix will premiere five shows available to stream from Marvel Television, Daredevil being the first in 2015 and then Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and eventually The Defenders. And now we're getting word that DC is shopping the idea of a Supergirl television show in the near future.
Daredevil has added yet another bombshell actress to its cast in 'True Blood's Deborah Ann Woll. The Hollywood Reporter says that she'll take on the role of Karen Page, Matt Murdock's love interest and secretary at the law firm of Nelson & Murdock.
Marvel's Netflix series Daredevil has added Rosario Dawson to its cast that already includes Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil) and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk/Kingpin).
News has broken that Marvel/Netflix have finally found their Daredevil. Comic fans will be pleased to know that Boardwalk Empire alumni Charlie Cox has been cast to play the daring crusader known as "Daredevil". Speculation on who would play Marvel's fearless hero has been running rampant, and we can now say with certainty that the character has officially been cast! What do you think of Charlie Cox being cast as "Daredevil"? We're always interested to know what you guys are thinking so feel free to send us your opinions towards this recent revelation!
