Marvel’s Daredevil is now confirmed to begin filming its next season this year, keeping the show’s third season on-course to premiere in 2018. Kicking off the Netflix corner of the MCU, Daredevil surprised critics and fans jaded by the poorly-received film adaptation by delivering an action-packed show full of intrigue and strong character work. Even better, comic book readers finally got a version of the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen that they’d been hoping to see on screen for years. Based on the reception, it came as little surprise when Marvel/Netflix then announced that Daredevil season 2 would be happening.
We have an exclusive clip from the home release of Split, focusing on the acting methods of star James McAvoy. M. Night Shyamalan stunned moviegoers earlier this year with the release of Split. Earning him some of the best reviews of his career thus far, and coming after a succession of flops, Split has grossed $221.9 million worldwide. Split tells the story of what happens when Kevin (McAvoy), a man with dissociative identity disorder, kidnaps three young girls. More than that, though, unbeknownst to audiences prior to its release, Split is a sequel to Shyamalan’s 2000 hit, Unbreakable.
James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 receives an official PG-13 rating. The film is just a month away from its May 5 premiere and promises to be another thrilling addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The original Guardians of the Galaxy boasted one of the MCU’s most distinctive blends of action and humor, the latter often toeing the line in terms of vulgarity. The comic interplay between the main characters, in particular, took the MCU to hilarious new heights.
Following the release of Spectre, the most recent James Bond film, it appeared that actor Daniel Craig was ready to leave the role, saying he’d rather “slit his wrists” than make another. The actor’s statement generated a lot of press and even more speculation over who would (or should) take over the role he had apparently vacated. Recently, however, a new report suggests that Craig may be on his way to coming back, thanks to producer Barbara Broccoli.
Sylvester Stallone is reportedly a no-go for The Expendables 4 and it sounds like his buddy, Arnold Schwarzegger, is taking a pass too. It wasn’t until the 2010 old school action-movie revival/homage The Expendables that ’80s icons Stallone and Schwarzengger finally shared the screen, though at the time Arnold was still governor of California and could only muster a brief cameo. Freed from the responsibilities of political office, Schwarzenegger was available for a larger role alongside Stallone in Expendables 2, and then came back for Expendables 3. The pair also appeared together in Escape Plan in 2013.
