ASM2 has only made $705 million! Everybody panic.
Sadly, in today's world of massive superhero films, that is a bit of a disappointment. It's the lowest grossing Spider-Man film ever, and on top of that Sony blew a ton of money on both the budget and marketing.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

I blame the system that expects these movies to break a billion and the marketing alone is a joke to be honest - most people didn't want what they got with TASM 2. MOS made $668,045,518 PANIC! add Batman for the next film. Ugh.

I've been hoping this since the announcement of Netflix's involvement. If House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are any indication, we might very well get the kind of edge a show about Daredevil would require.
Yeah, my suspicion is the reason for choosing Netflix is to approach that level. I don't think it'll be quite as "mature" as that (probably more violent than either show, though), but certainly at an FX level.

This news makes me very happy. I love her on True Blood.
The only reason this disappoints me is I was really hoping somebody would do an adaptation of Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series, and that she would be Rachel. This was just a dream though, since nobody is actually an adaptation right now.

Well we know for a fact that Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicle, & Terry Pratchett's Shannara Series have all been picked up recently for Film/Television in various stages of Production. So there's always hope.

Report on the Daredevil/Netflix panel at NYCC...

Of all of the characters that I thought Rosario Dawson might be playing, I never expected it it to be...

Makes sense given the tie to Luke Cage. They probably didn't announce who she was at first because she's a character who will appear throughout the mini-series.

Ugh. I love the books, and I do like the 2007 series. But they realised they could never adapt the books to the screen properly and created something different for it.

Movies...could have the budget and R rating needed to depict them, if you could convince a large cast to sign on for the time necessary to do all 20+ books.

TV, what, a season a book? 20 years or so as well, don't see it happening, no budget today could manage it.

So I'm dreading the inevitable watered down, heavily edited, PG-13, budget-Harry actor (lets face it, few people could play him), rubbish they'll make.

Our first official look at Matt Murdock both in-costume and out, courtesy of Cinema Blend. But before you get too excited, Murdock isn't in his iconic red costume, here. For now they're only giving us a glimpse of him in what appears to be an early, very basic costume.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Yeah, it seems to be based on the outfit he wore in the Man without Fear mini-series. Although that was a black hoodie while this is some other fabric that might make him a bit too ninja-looking.

I saw the panel today and the footage was awesome. Cox said that you wouldn't see cliffhangers since you can just click the next episode and that it would be like a 13-chapter movie. He also said that DD's audience is generally slightly older and they would play to that more while not isolating the rest of the fanbase.

Can he be "too ninja-looking" when he was trained by a ninja? They also adapted him in a ninja-ish costume in The Trial of the Incredible Hulk. I wouldn't mind if this were his final costume on the show...a reasonable compromise between his classic comics look and versimilitude.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

He was trained by the least Ninja-looking Ninja ever. Certainly, Stick never dressed like that (technically, real ninjas never dressed like that, but that's not the point). You want this as the final costume? It just isn't Daredevil. With the exception of The Punisher movies, every single comic book movie I can think of is more authentic than that.

It's great as a prototype costume because it's a callback to something in the comics (however, that was something thrown together for the circumstances, not something carefully constructed). But this isn't close to a reasonable compromise for the final costume. It's a complete abandonment of the trend in superhero movies to make it at least recognizable.

Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

I'm thinking that when they finally get around to the Punisher, they'll be going with designs from the books written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Marco Checchetto.

The Punisher: War Zone movie's Punisher was close to the comic, but the movie just sucked.

I think the released photos look daring so far. I hope he does dawn the costume we're all familiar with, but that costume looks pretty cool.
