Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil first bucked our conceptions of the four Defenders series with a second season, so it’s only fitting ol’ Hornhead continue the trend at Comic-Con 2016. Even as Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders gear up for 2017, Marvel and Netflix confirm Daredevil Season 3 will arrive sometime thereafter.

Marvel Television’s huge Netflix panel at San Diego Comic-Con was loaded with surprises, and plenty of new teasers and trailers. You’ve got your Luke Cage trailer and you’ve got your Defenders teaser. But what would the Defenders be without Iron Fist? They would just be two guys and a woman who fought crime, but didn’t have a crazy martial artist who could harness his chi into his hands for mega-powerful punches. Still pretty formidable, to be honest. But not quite as cool.
In case you thought Luke Cage’s first official trailer, Iron Fist footage or Daredevil Season 3 news weren’t enough, prepare for The Defenders! Straight from Comic-Con 2016, the four Marvel Netflix heroes gather for a first teaser that confirms a familiar voice, and a Hand-y foe ahead.
You didn’t think Marvel’s Netflix hero-for-hire would hit Comic-Con 2016 without some fresh footage, did you? Luke Cage is ready to rumble in the first official trailer for Marvel’s next Defender series, and Harlem won’t know what hit it.
Let’s face it, Netflix’s already-forgiving standards and the required turnaround of animation already gave Voltron: Legendary Defender a strong shot at returning the five lions for Season 2, but there’s better news yet. Season 2 will air as early as later this year, so get ready to form up once again!
Joe and Anthony Russo are slowly turning into the kings of comic books in Hollywood; not only have they directed two smash-hit Captain America movies, they're slated to direct the next two Avengers films and are attached to produce a film based on Kyle Starks' Sexcastle. Announced today during San Diego Comic Con, the brothers with the Midas touch will next turn their attention back to the small screen --- where they made their names on shows like Community and Arrested Development --- to adapt Image Comics' Deadly Class.
Kevin Smith’s TV renaissance (let’s not give it a cute name) has taken us from The Flash to Mallrats and back again, and it looks as if The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension TV series is taking off as well. Amazon is reportedly close to a series order, with Smith himself likely to announce at Comic-Con.
Just when you thought Comic-Con 2016 wouldn’t bring you enough superheroes, it’s Amazon’s live-action adaptation of The Tick! Yes, the big blue bug is back, as Amazon sets an August debut with the first photos of Peter Serafinowicz in costume, along with release dates for Jean Claude Van Damme’s new series and more.
Welcome to Together Breakfast, the feature where Elle Collins and Katie Schenkel come together to dig in and relish every last drop of Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe. With the arrival of the new nightly summer schedule, we’re going to be checking in a couple of times a week, with several episodes to cover per column. It may be hectic, but hopefully you’ll keep up with us as we dive headlong into the world of the Crystal Gems.
Today we're looking at "Steven Floats", directed by Kat Morris and Jasmin Lai and written by Paul Villeco; "Drop Beat Dad", directed by Joe Johnston and Jasmin Lai, written by Lamar Abrams and Katie Mitroff; "Mr Greg", directed by Joe Johnston and Jasmin Lai, written by Joe Johnston and Jeff Liu; and "Too Short To Ride", directed by Kat Morris and Jasmin Lai, and written by Hilary Florido and Lauren Zuke.
From the moment we got our first look at Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad, it was obvious that her take on Harley Quinn would easily be the best thing about the film. A new extended promo for David Ayer’s super-villain team-up further makes that point clear, as The Joker’s (former?) partner-in-crime takes the spotlight and proves that she’s not at all what she seems.
