Rumor: Could The Defenders Appears in Avengers: Infinity War Part 2?

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 18, 2015 in Cinema, Comic Books


Here’s a fun rumor to chew on: Bleeding Cool is reporting that they’re hearing that Netflix’s Defenders will appear in Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. As you may already know, the Defenders are┬áthe eventual team-up of the Netflix Marvel series Daredevil, A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Once this team-up happens, Bleeding Cool says they’ll help out in Infinity War Part 2. Seems like that film will be packed with heroes, if that’s true! It could be fun to see the small-screen superheroes make it to the big one. Read more…

Kingpin Co-stars In Daredevil’s Full Trailer

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 11, 2015 in Comic Books, Television

The Kingpin

As much as I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I have to admit that they have a villain problem. Other than a few notable exceptions (like Loki), the film version of these villains lack depth, whether it’s the fault of the script, the editing, or something else. It’s encouraging to see the first full trailer for Daredevil focus a good portion of the trailer on Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. Maybe having 13 episodes to play with will give Marvel the time it needs to fully develop the character, who seems to be trying his best to do good things for his neighborhood, albeit using questionable methods. It’s going to be hard to wait a whole month for this. Read more…

Netflix Is Developing A Live-Action Legend of Zelda Show

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 8, 2015 in Videogames


Here’s something surprising: Netflix is currently working with Nintendo to develop a live-action Legend of Zelda show for their service. Given how guarded Nintendo usually is with their properties, this is a big leap for them, although company president Satoru Iwata had said that Nintendo would begin allowing for more licensing opportunities. The show is still in the early stages, and Netflix is currently on the hunt for a writer. Netflix is apparently describing it internally as “Game of Thrones for a family audience.” This could very easily be bad, so lets hope Netflix and Nintendo put the right people behind this.

David Tennant Cast In A.K.A. Jessica Jones As Villain

Posted by Bob Muir on Jan 27, 2015 in Comic Books, Television

The Purple Man

Part of my enjoyment of all these new Marvel movies and TV series is getting to know characters I never knew of before. The Netflix series fit that bill pretty well, because non-comic fans likely have no idea who Jessica Jones is. But A.K.A. Jessica Jones is the second Netflix series in production (after this April’s Daredevil), telling the story of a retired superhero who becomes a detective. We’ve learned that Krysten Ritter is the titular hero, while Mike Colter is potential love-interest Luke Cage (with his own Netflix series at least a year out). Now Marvel has cast their villain: David Tennant. Read more…

Daredevil Series To Hit Netflix On April 10

Posted by Bob Muir on Jan 8, 2015 in Cinema, Television


I thought for sure that we wouldn’t see Marvel’s Daredevil series until May at the earliest, or more likely sometime this summer. But no, Marvel has announced that all thirteen hour-long episodes will be available on Netflix starting on April 10. That’s soon! Knowing Marvel, they’ll probably be starting to slowly drop more teasers for the show until we finally start seeing some trailers and promotion, maybe as soon as February. I’m curious to see how this may fit in with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will still be airing at that time, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, which releases less than a month later. But as usual, I’m most interested to see Marvel introduce a character I don’t know much about, having steered clear of the poorly-rated Ben Affleck film. Read more…

Here’s Your First Look At Daredevil’s Costume

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 13, 2014 in Comic Books, Television


The Daredevil Netflix series will be coming out next year, and at NYCC 2014 we got our first look at his costume, above. It’s mostly cloth, rather than the rubber or featuring the padding most of Marvel’s other heroes have gotten, and it’s heavily inspired by his outfit in Man Without Fear. It’s fairly Zorro-esque! Man Without Fear is apparently also a big story influence on this series, according to the series creators. All in all, it looks like they’re steering the series in the right direction, so with any luck it’ll turn Check out a description of the teaser trailer that was shown here. Read more…

Marvel Casts Charlie Cox As Daredevil

Posted by Bob Muir on May 29, 2014 in Comic Books, Television

Charlie Cox

Drew Goddard leaving Marvel’s Daredevil show (coming to Netflix) in order to concentrate on making The Sinister Six for Sony was a bummer when we learned it last weekend. But thankfully, Goddard’s replacement seems well-picked, and now we know who will be playing the titular role. Charlie Cox will play blind lawyer Matt Murdock who becomes the vigilante Daredevil. You may recognize Cox from his roles on Boardwalk Empire and Stardust, and now you’ll be watching 13 episodes of him on Netflix, in the first of several various superhero series that are planned. As someone who is eagerly devouring anything connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe lately, I’m pretty excited to see what Marvel can do with Netflix. Read more…

Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Final Season

Posted by Bob Muir on Feb 25, 2014 in Star Wars, Television

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I’m aware that Star Wars: The Clone Wars is set between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, so it’s unavoidably tied to the prequels. But as this trailer for the sixth and final season shows, it’s clearly one of the best thing to come out of those movies, almost the point where I wish we could just forget the movies happened completely. Fans are lucky that this final season is coming out on March 7 on Netflix (along with all the previous episodes), but until then, this really cool trailer will have to tide them over. It seems that Star Wars: Rebels is going to have some giant shoes to fill. Read more…

Netflix Considering Another Season of Arrested Development

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 13, 2013 in Television


Did you want more Arrested Development in your life? Netflix may be looking to continue their relationship with Mitch Hurtwitz and the crew. Producer Brian Grazer confirmed that Netflix is looking into the possibility of a fifth season. Granted, the biggest leap to make will be getting the cast together again. It was the hardest part of the fourth season, and the use of green screen to unite characters that film their parts at different times and locations was the biggest criticism I had. Whether that will be tackled again remains to be seen, but I’d still love to see more of the Bluth family. Read more…

Fans Try To Resurrect Star Trek: Enterprise Season Five On Netflix

Posted by Bob Muir on May 15, 2013 in Star Trek, Television

Star Trek: Enterprise

The latest battle for viewership is being fought on subscription services like Netflix and Hulu Plus. Original shows like House of Cards are proving to be draws, and Netflix’s exclusive season four of Arrested Development could be a major win for the service. In light of this and the renewed popularity of Star Trek thanks to J.J. Abrams’ rebooted films, has led some fans to try and resurrect Star Trek TV series on Netflix. The only thing is that the prime candidate is Star Trek: Enterprise, of all things. Read more…

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 5, 2013 in Television


Get ready, Bluth fans, because Netflix has finally confirmed the launch date of the new season of Arrested Development: May 26th. Along with this date we also have gotten a new poster, and news that there will be a total of 15 episodes, up from the 14 we heard last. I really hope this catches on and we can see more Arrested Development in the future too, but first we just gotta get to May 26th. Also: they couldn’t have picked a better tagline. Those clever devils over at Netflix know what they’re doing, that’s for sure. Check out the poster below! Read more…

Netflix Axes Terra Nova Deal

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Mar 27, 2012 in Television

Terra Nova Poster

The last few weeks have been absolutely brutal for Sci-Fi fans. First, Fox decides to drop Terra Nova despite relatively strong ratings, then SyFy opts to pass on the latest Battlestar Galactica prequel, even though it looked far more interesting than Caprica. While we had hoped Netflix would provide some light at the end of that tunnel, it now seems as though talks to revive Terra Nova have ceased. I’m sure many of you had your fingers crossed, especially after Netflix managed to pick up Arrested Development the other month. The rumor seemed promising, but perhaps its for the best — the show’s budget would need to be slashed, and I couldn’t begin to imagine what Terra Nova would even be like without it.

It’s been tough times for Netflix. Between the whole Qwikster debacle, price changes, and inability to renew their contract with Starz, many subscribers have decided to move on to greener pastures. Those who’ve stayed are banking on Netflix to provide fresh content despite the recent setbacks. Fortunately for us, they’re trying.
