Though we still don’t have a firm release date for Marvel’s upcoming slate of Netflix series, we do know where they will be filmed.  It was announced today that the Hell’s Kitchen-set shows for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist will be shot entirely in New York City, marking the biggest production commitment in New York State history.  The project will produce 60 one-hour episodes, encompassing four individual series (of 13 episodes each) and one mini-series (dubbed The Defenders) that teams up all of the aforementioned characters and revolves around their exploits in Hell’s Kitchen.  The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard is spearheading Daredevil as the writer and director of that series and Melissa Rosenberg is shepherding Jessica Jones, but we don’t have any further details on the other shows just yet.

Production on the series will begin this summer with the first show, Daredevil, to debut on Netflix sometime in 2015.  Read the full, lengthy press release after the jump.

Marvel has confirmed some exciting news relating to its upcoming string of Netflix shows.  We learned last month that Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard was in talks to spearhead Marvel’s Daredevil series, and now the studio has confirmed that Goddard will indeed be running the show.  The Cloverfield scribe will write and direct the first episode and will act as showrunner and executive producer on the show’s entire 13-episode run.  Daredevil is one of four one-season Netflix series that Marvel is producing, which also includes Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage.  All of the one-season shows will lead up to a The Defenders miniseries.

Daredevil will be first out of the gate, with Marvel confirming that it will premiere on Netflix in 2015.  With a guy as passionate and talented as Goddard at the helm, Daredevil looks to be in very good hands.

Things appear to be moving quickly on Marvel’s venture into the television world.  Just a few months after launching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC to a mixed response, Marvel announced that it was teaming up with Netflix to develop four live-action series centering around four separate characters, followed by a Marvel’s The Defenders mini-series event that will bring the characters together.  The first character series out of the gate will be Daredevil, as the character rights just recently reverted back to Marvel after Fox failed to mount a feature film reboot in time.  Now we have our first clue as to what to expect from the Daredevil series, as Cabin in the Woods and Cloverfield scribe Drew Goddard is being eyed to pen the adventures of blind superhero Matt Murdock.

Although I hate to naysay, I’ve gone on record several times with my lack of excitement for the upcoming RoboCop remake (here’s one example although I’m sure there are more). This past week MGM and Sony released the new trailer for the film and while I think the cast has the potential to be great, in general the movie just keeps digging itself into a bigger hole with every bit of new footage that I see. Whereas Paul Verhoeven‘s original was laced with social critique that was often ahead of its time if not at least skillfully deployed, this latest trailer goes out of its way to show that it too has something to say about social issues with on the nose references to the idea of using American resources to promote peace abroad rather than at home and the invasive nature of corporate marketing/branding. You keep up with current affairs, we get it. Speaking of marketing, probably my biggest beef with this latest cut comes in its final seconds when it shows RoboCop making a grandiose landing that essentially says “You guys liked the Iron Man movies, right?! You should definitely check this out then because it has a guy in a futuristic suit too!”. Thanks but no thanks, MGM and Sony.

Now that I’ve levied more criticism on a 2:30 trailer than is likely fair, let’s move on to something more positive. This week’s Top 5 features Thor: The Dark World interviews with Tom Hiddleston and more, Dallas Buyers Club interviews with the likes of Jared Leto, the news that Marvel will bring live-action series to Netflix featuring Daredevil and others, a recap of Steve’s 47 Ronin set visit, and a farewell to the once massive video rental chain, Blockbuster Video. If I haven’t lost you yet, a brief recap and link to each of the above can be found after the jump.

Reactions to Marvel’s first live-action series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has been lukewarm, but the studio and parent company Disney are forging ahead with more live-action series with much bigger characters.  Disney has announced that they will be bringing “multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel’s most popular characters exclusively to [Netflix].”  The first series will be Daredevil, followed by (in unknown order) Jessica Jones (featured in comic book series Alias), Luke Cage (who had an on-again, off-again affair with Jones), and Iron Fist.  All four series will lead up to bringing the character together for “Marvel’s The Defenders mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.”  Marvel Television will produce in association with ABC Television Studios.

Marvel has already locked Phase Two, but other than Ant-Man, Phase Three is wide open.  Furthermore, the powerhouse studio now has two major characters back in their stable.  Daredevil and The Punisher both reverted back to Marvel when the rights lapsed at Fox and Lionsgate, respectively.  Obviously, if Marvel gives the characters new movies, they’ll be reboots, but in a recent interview, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says they’re still figuring out how to proceed with these valuable properties.

The good news is that a number of Marvel comics properties are back in the hands of Marvel Studios and may once again be seen on screen.  The bad news is that the feature treatment ain’t happening for all of them.  Marvel’s Kevin Feige talked about a number of planned and possible superhero films coming up in the next few years, including an adaptation of the lesser-known property Inhumans.  More recognizable names – like Blade, Punisher, Ghost Rider and Daredevil – are also under Marvel’s control once again, but will have to find the right time, place and treatment to fit into the studio’s current plans.  Hit the jump for updates on the above-mentioned properties and more, including the chances of a Marvel Zombies one-off.

Kevin Feige Confirms the Rights to DAREDEVIL Have Reverted Back to Marvel

by     Posted 362 days ago

It appears that Marvel Studios has secured the rights to another very popular comics character.  While 20th Century Fox’s 2003 take on Daredevil was a bit of a misfire, the studio had been trying to move forward on a new iteration of the character in recent years30 Days of Night director David Slade came onboard to direct a Daredevil reboot in the spring of 2011, and Fringe scribe Brad Caleb Kane was subsequently tapped to pen the screenplay.  Movement on the project was quiet for a full year, though, and the following summer Slade left the film to helm the pilot for NBC’s Hannibal.

When Slade exited the project, however, Fox was facing a ticking clock.  The studio had to move quickly to get a new Daredevil movie into production before the rights to the character reverted back to Marvel.  Well, a new Daredevil film failed to materialize in the ensuing months, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed today that Marvel now holds to the rights to the character.  Hit the jump for more.

Joe Carnahan Talks DAREDEVIL Movie and DEATH WISH Remake

Yesterday, we reported the sad news that Joe Carnahan‘s pitch for the reboot of Daredevil failed to gain any traction at Fox.  As if to make us even more disappointed, Carnahan took the sizzle reel he made to convince Fox execs and posted it online so we could get a better idea of how cool his take would have been.  We’re not seeing any period-piece superhero movies, and Daredevil would have fit in nicely with the 1970s.

As we’ve seen from his tweets and posting of the sizzle reel, Carnahan has no problem keeping people updated about what he’s working on.  With that in mind, he called in to The Radio Dan Show to talk about why he was interested in Daredevil, and why the project didn’t get off the ground (the rights will likely now revert to Marvel Studios).  He also talks about his upcoming remake of Death Wish, when it will take place, its similarity to the original, and more.  Hit the jump for what Carnahan had to say about these projects.

DAREDEVIL Rights May Revert Back to Marvel; Watch Director Joe Carnahan’s DAREDEVIL Sizzle Reels

daredevil-joe-carnahan-slice

After reporting this morning that Joe Carnahan’s pitch to Fox for Daredevil “went up in smoke,” the director decided to share those sizzle reels with Twitter.  It’s clear that I’m not cut out to be a studio executive, because Carnahan’s hardcore, 70′s take on the Man without Fear seemed spot on to me.  Granted, sizzle reels aren’t composed of actual footage; they are spliced together pieces of film stock, bits of soundtrack, some concept art and, in this case, comic book panels that are meant to give the viewer a sense of tone and theme.  Carnahan’s Daredevil would have been closer to a Frank Miller film: tough, ballsy and fearless.  It’s a shame we’ll probably never see the vision on the big screen. Hit the jump to watch two versions of the Daredevil pitch.

Last week, we reported the exciting news that Fox was looking at director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) to reboot Daredevil.  The studio needs to get a reboot of the Man without Fear into production by October 10th or else the rights for the character will revert to Marvel Studios.  There was even word that Fox, in order to hold onto the rights a little longer, was willing to make a trade with Marvel.  This report was later denied, and we learned that Fox was still lukewarm on rebooting Daredevil.  Carnahan was still involved, but now that may have changed as well.

Marvel and Fox Not Swapping the Rights for DAREDEVIL in Exchange for Galactus and Silver Surfer?

by     Posted 1 year, 255 days ago

daredevil-galactus-silver-surfer-slice

Yesterday, we reported on the interesting possibility of Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox possibly trading comic book characters for the benefit of both studios.  In short, Fox’s rights to Daredevil are set to expire on October 10th unless the movie goes into production before then (which is highly unlikely to happen).  Marvel would extend Fox’s rights to the character, if Fox allowed Marvel to use Galactus and Silver Surfer from the Fantastic Four universe.  It would be a neat trade, and hopefully open the door for Marvel being able to use some of the characters they licensed off before the studio could develop movies independently.

However, Deadline is now reporting that this trade is far from a reality.  Hit the jump for more.
