in Fiction by

Alert the media! Marvel’s Daredevil is upon us, and it’s bringing a few familiar faces to the comic book lovers of the world. Who’s interested in seeing what Daredevil himself Matt Murdock and idealistic best bro Foggy Nelson are up to when we return for the second season of the Netflix original series?

Season 2 will hit the Internet on March 18, so we expect you’ll be coming up with an epic excuse to skip work and jump into binge-watching mode. So, will Season 2 deliver a superb second installment?

Last year we treated our readers (and let’s be honest, ourselves) to a little present—the killer abs of the 10 hottest men of 2014.

To help keep the roads free of ice over the holidays, we present our second annual Abs as Flat as a Book: the hottest men of 2015. Consider it a present AND a public service. Happy Holidays – You’re welcome! Adam Driver Intergalactic bad boy Adam Driver wowed us in Star Wars VIII. Not only is he easy on the eyes, but…

The fall 2015 TV season is introducing a whole bunch of superhero shows, including Supergirl, Mondays at 8:30 on CBS, and Jessica Jones, coming to Netflix November 20.

Will Marvel’s Jessica Jones be More Than Just Another Strong Female Character?

in Fiction by

Still waiting for Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel to anchor a major comic book movie? Tired of seeing female superheroes shunted to the sidelines? (Hey, I’m talking about you, Black Widow and Storm.) Well never fear, Jessica Jones is here. Yes, Marvel and Netflix just dropped the teaser trailer and release date (November 20) for the newest superhero series that fits in the acclaimed Marvel Daredevil universe.     Just one problem. Who the hell is Jessica Jones? I’ve been reading Marvel comics since Sue Storm was in pigtails and yet all that I know about Jessica is that she married Luke Cage, aka Power Man.

5 Daredevil easter eggs even a blind superhero could spot

in Fiction by

Is there anything Marvel Studios can’t do right? Currently, Avengers: Age of Ultron is destroying the worldwide box office, and is expected to gross nearly two biiiiiiillion dollars before it’s through. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel’s Agent Carter have just been renewed for new seasons.

And then there’s Daredevil. The Man without Fear made his Netflix debut last month. His show was dark, thrilling, extremely violent—and it was magnificent. From Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer by day/vigilante by night, to Vincent D’Onofrio’s terrifying…

As the last of summer’s big-budget popcorn-fests are wheeled out, Hollywood is turning to yet another longtime fan-favorite franchise in an attempt to draw audiences. And these heroes may not only be the strangest of them all, but the story of their rise to prominence in worldwide pop culture may be more fascinating than any adventure they’ve had in the comics or on the screen. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, whose latest film…
