Daredevil, Season 2 promo poster

Marvel’s Daredevil
Season 2 Episodes 7-9
Created by Drew Goddard
Starring Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jon Bernthal, Elodie Yung
Netflix
Premiere date: Friday, March 18th, 2016

Daredevil season 2 debuted a week before Batman V Superman is set to hit theaters, and while the TV superhero shows were on a brief hiatus. The definition of perfect timing, Daredevil is the talk of the watercooler, and with Netflix uploading shows all at once, the binger will have no crossover effect. And binge you should, because this is an absolutely epic season. Every time I think I’ve seen far and away the best episode, the next one starts and it’s a whole new level of “Holy Shit” and “Oh My God” and “Are you kidding me!?” We left off with The Punisher awaiting trial for his murders and Elektra causing all sorts of personal and professional issues for Matt “Daredevil” Murdock…

Premiere date: Friday, March 18th, 2016

The arrest of Wilson Fisk left a power vacuum in Hell’s Kitchen. As Irish gang members meet to try to fill it, they are interrupted, to put it mildly, by a military style assault leaving all but one dead. Turns out, someone is hunting down gangs and street scum in the neighborhood. Sgt. Mahoney (Royce Johnson) even jokes that some cops think this mysterious gunman is making their lives easier. He even has a nickname… The Punisher.

Netflix Marvel Daredevil Red Suit Season 1

Marvel’s Daredevil
Season 2 Episodes 1-3
Created by Drew Goddard
Starring Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jon Bernthal
Netflix
Premiere date: Friday, March 18th, 2016

Finally, Marvel returns to Netflix with Season 2 of Daredevil. Debuting last year, the 13-episode series, uploaded all at once on the streaming site, put to death terrible memories of the unimpressive Ben Affleck film version. The new Daredevil (Charlie Cox), is blind lawyer Matt Murdock, who along with his best buddy Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and victim turned associate Karen (Deborah Ann Woll), run a law firm to help the underprivileged in Hell’s Kitchen. Murdock was blinded as a boy and the chemicals that blinded him also enhanced his other senses to the extreme. After a season long battle with Mob “Kingpin” Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), Murdock finally went from blindfolded ninja costume to the red suited Man With No Fear himself in the season finale. The series received rave reviews from critics and fans and with the series being on Netflix it was allowed to take its time over the 13-episodes whereas a film is forced to squeeze everything into 90-120 minutes. The show’s success launched a future Marvel Netflix empire, as Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter was already a huge hit last year, and there are other series slated such as Luke Cage and Iron Fist. The storyline going into season 2 of Daredevil is, who will take over Wilson Fisk’s spot as top crime boss?

Spoilers for the first three episodes below.

Movie Review: The Martian

The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon

The Martian
Director: Ridley Scott
Screenwriter: Drew Goddard
Cast: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Chiwetel Ejiofor
20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 141 Minutes
Release Date: October 2, 2015

“It is good to renew one’s wonder, said the philosopher. Space travel has again made children of us all.” – Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles

A classic work of twentieth-century literature, 1950’s The Martian Chronicles documents the exploration and colonization of Mars by humans fleeing an unstable Earth. Sixty-five years later, we’re still trying to reach the red planet.

Of course, there have been countless cinematic explorations of Mars: The Angry Red Planet, Robinson Crusoe on Mars, Total Recall, Mission to Mars, John Carter – and who could forget Mars Needs Women and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? And while fantastical these films may be, none of them have transported me to Mars in a way that felt truly and undeniably real.

Enter The Martian. Written by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and directed by Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings), The Martian is based on Andy Weir‘s 2011 novel of the same name. It is the harrowing story of the first human to colonize Mars, NASA astronaut Mark Watney, played by Matt Damon.

Drew Goddard

Did you stand up and shout “I need a sequel to this immediately!” after watching the extraordinary horror flick The Cabin in the Woods? Well…don’t go getting too excited. A sequel to the movie is not something that’s happening. At least not yet. There is still hope that the movie will happen someday, but when or if that day will ever come is unknown.

Drew Goddard, creator and writer of Netflix’s Daredevil series, writer of episodes of TV shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Alias, and LOST, and writer on movies such as Cloverfield, World War Z, and most recently The Martian, made his feature directorial debut with Cabin and wrote the screenplay along with Joss Whedon. Goddard spoke recently about the possibility of a Cabin in the Woods 2, saying that the studio actually wants to do it but some things have to happen first.

See what he had to say below.

Drew Goddard’s ‘Sinister Six’ Could Still Happen

Sinister Six

Drew Goddard‘s Sinister Six and Venom were just a couple of the Amazing Spider-Man spinoff films that Sony was hoping to release to launch their Spider-Man shared universe. However, after two films failed to meet expectations, the studio made an unprecedented move, they made a deal with their studio rivals, Marvel/Disney, to share the character, and allow the webslinger to play in their sandbox.

The deal effectively killed Sony’s plans for their single Marvel character universe, which was a relief to some, leaving Goddard’s script to sit on a shelf. But the Daredevil Netflix series creator wrote the spinoff in such a way where it can stand on its own and not worry about “mythology or continuity,” and now he is talking about how he hopes that the film still could happen. More on the story below.

Drew Goddard Talks Marvel Studios Relationship, Cancelled ‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff ‘Sinister Six’

Spider-Man and Daredevil

Before the entire Amazing Spider-Man universe fell apart, Drew Goddard was tapped to write and direct a spinoff centered on the Sinister Six. Then when Sony cancelled their plans for their universe and started to share Spider-Man with Marvel Studios, there were rumors that Goddard’s script would be revamped to fit the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it was confirmed that Jon Watts (Cop Car) would direct using a script written by Vacation scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

And even though Goddard’s script won’t be used, he is still very much involved with other Marvel Studio-related projects. One of them being Daredevil. As the executive producer, Goddard wrote and directed the first two episodes of the Netflix series. Now a consultant for the show, Goddard has moved on to bigger projects like The Martian, which he is currently promoting at the Toronto International Film Festival. There he had a chance to talk about his relationship with Marvel Studios and the cancelled Sinister Six. Check out what he had to say below.

Spider-Man

Every day now appears to bear news regarding Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Spider-Man reboot, which might be titled either The Spectacular Spider-Man or Spider-Man: The New Avenger, and is rumored take place during Peter Parker’s high school years. The title role has yet to be cast, but the front-runners reportedly include Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothée Chalamet, and Liam James.

Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) supposedly had been the studios’ top choice to write and direct the reboot, but recently a list of possible directors up for the job was released by Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr. and Goddard’s name is nowhere to be found. Instead it appears as if Marvel and Sony are on the hunt for someone who will bring a lighter touch to the proceedings because the list features the likes of Jonathan Levine, Jared Hess, Jason Moore, Theodore Melfi, and the team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

In February, Sony announced that it would share Spider-Man with their rivals, Marvel Studios. Though Sony would still retain the rights and creative control, it meant that the webslinger could be seen alongside heroes like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, etc. The deal also says that Marvel won’t pay Sony anything to use the character in their cinematic universe, such as The Avengers movies or Captain America: Civil War, and neither Sony nor Marvel will take a cut of the other studios’ projects involving Spider-Man.

It is expected that Spider-Man may make his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War. If that is the plan, then casting should be underway since the Captain America sequel is expected to begin filming as soon as the Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour is complete. Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman were rumored to be in the running at one point in time, and it was even reported that the reboot may have Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker. But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirms that the new Spider-Man reboot will focus on Parker and that it won’t be an origins story.

Drew Goddard to direct Spider-Man

Three weeks ago, fans of the Spider-Man franchise who were less than enthused by its recent entries breathed a sigh of relief when the news broke that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios had finally worked out a deal that would allow for Peter Parker and his iconic super alter ego to appear in one of the upcoming features from Marvel as well as headline a new film that Marvel and Sony would co-produce. The deal was major enough to impact Marvel’s Phase Three release schedule, with four movies getting their release dates pushed back.

If Kellvin Chavez at Latino Review is to be believed, and that dude is rarely wrong, it looks as if the studios have already found their director for the next Spider-Man movie.
