About this time last year, Marvel’s stylish first Daredevil poster clued us into the fact that Charlie Cox’s Man Without Fear would stick to basic black duds early on, keeping the iconic red suit under wraps. No longer, as Matt Murdock’s blood-red body armor is on full display for the first Daredevil Season 2 poster, debuting at New York Comic-Con 2015.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Now that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 has kicked off the Inhuman invasion with a bang, and Jessica Jones busts up enough bars to cross Daredevil’s radar, Marvel TV has never stood taller against its cinematic brethren. Crossovers haven’t exactly been a two-way street however, even as Kevin Feige calls it “inevitable,” with a kingly big bad in mind for our new Spider-Man.
Last weekend at Baltimore Comic-Con, the 27th annual Harvey Awards were held, and in one of the least surprising developments in the history of the Harveys, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga took home a few more awards to add to a shelf that I'm sure is already collapsing under the weight of its many honors.
Named for MAD Magazine editor and cartoonist Harvey Kurtzman (who, interestingly enough, did not win the award he was nominated for this year), the Harveys are voted on by industry professionals, and this year's winners represent a pretty interesting crop of current comics, including CA favorites like Lumberjanes, Hellboy In Hell, and even Dick Tracy. Check out a full roster of winners and nominees below!
We like to have our fun at the internet’s expense when it comes to the Daredevil Twitter account, but at last social media has wrought real Season 2 news. Scott Glenn will return to Hell’s Kitchen as Matt Murdock’s old mentor Stick, but what might it mean for Daredevil Season 2?
Early on in development of Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil, comic icon Drew Goddard signed on to take the reigns, only to bow out for Sony’s Sinister Six extension of the Amazing Spider-Man franchise. We all know how that went, but with Daredevil Season 2 on the horizon, how much more involved might Goddard be?
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if that's the case, Marvel seems determined to make DC and Batman blush, because the number of copycats, clones, and knockoffs of the Dark Knight that Marvel has created is bordering on the ridiculous.
For months, we’ve waited on Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones to at last announce its 2015 premiere (or at least a real photo) and just one month prior to New York Comic-Con, our second Defender has officially come out of hiding. It’s time the world knew her name, as Jessica Jones sets a November premiere by its first teaser!
Luke Cage can’t have all the fun. It seems Daredevil Season 2 isn’t done casting just yet (seriously, where’s our Bullseye?), as the Man Without Fear will have a new legal confidante when Season 2 premieres next year. The Butler star Stephen Rider has joined the cast as a series regular and notable Marvel figure, helping keep Daredevil in business come Season 2.
We don’t yet have any official photos of The Punisher from Daredevil Season 2 (seriously, they’re casting Luke Cage, and we don’t even have Jessica Jones photos), but that isn’t stopping Jon Bernthal from showing off Frank Castle’s punishing tools. The Punisher is packing serious heat in a new photo shared by Bernthal, and Hell’s Kitchen should already be running scared.
