We haven’t heard much from Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ series since the big presentation at New York Comic-Con, save for the character’s successor in Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, so what’s Matt Murdock been up to? Find out in two new photos of Marvel’s “street-level heroes,”as ‘Daredevil’ hits the streets to dispense some ninja justice!
Following the recent announcement that Warner Bros. has hired the awesomely talented Michelle MacLaren to direct the first ‘Wonder Woman’ solo film, we also learned that the studio was close to hiring ‘Pan’ screenwriter Jason Fuchs to pen the script. But now it seems that Fuchs may not be the only screenwriter on the project (if he’s still involved at all): rumor has it that WB has hired a total of six writers to deliver six different scripts. Stop scratching your head so much, you’ll make a bald spot.

Joss Whedon is tired.
It’s just about halfway through the shoot for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in London, and Whedon doesn’t as much sit down for our interview as he does collapse into a chair. It’s a bright and sunny day in London, but he looks like he hasn’t seen the sunshine in weeks. He’s completely wiped out—”raggedy” as he puts it—by his schedule, which he describes thusly: “I do this, I go home, I rewrite, I go to sleep. I do this, I go home, I rewrite, I go to sleep.”
Earlier this week, the official German Lego site posted its catalog for the first half of 2015. While ordinary this wouldn't be a big deal, the preview book actually featured the first look at the company's planned Lego Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Age of Ultron sets.
And like that, ‘Suicide Squad’ has seemingly added another big name to its already impressive ensemble. According to the latest rumor, two-time Academy Award nominee and ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ star Viola Davis has nabbed the role of Amanda Waller in David Ayer’s upcoming supervillain team-up film. We’ll see how the actual movie shakes out in a little under two years, but this may very well be the craziest cast ever assembled for a comic book adaptation.
Warner Bros. has been trying to adapt Neil Gaiman’s classic ‘Sandman’ graphic novels into a film for years with little success, but now that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to direct and David S. Goyer is involved, the project is picking up steam. Gaiman himself has been working closely with Gordon-Levitt, Goyer, and writer Jack Thorne on finally bringing ‘Sandman’ to the big screen, and he thinks Tom Hiddleston would be the perfect leading man.
One of the chief criticisms of ‘Man of Steel’ was the way that Superman dealt with his epic battles—primarily, that he wasn’t concerned enough about ensuring the safety of the citizens of Metropolis, and how he recklessly used the entire city as his battleground. Thanks to the outspoken dissatisfaction with the film’s climax, it seems as though the script for ‘Batman vs. Superman’ will address those complaints and try to make Superman a more likable and cautious hero.
