While we didn't get a clip from the Daredevil show, it was great to see and hear Charlie Cox on the Late Show with David Letterman last night. The Daredevil actor talked about Netflix and the show for a little bit. But first he had to deal with his food poisoning...
The promos keep coming and this time it's a TV commercial for the Daredevil show...
Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll and Nikolai Nikolaeff were in Australia to help promote the launch of Netflix down under and Spotlight Report had a chance to interview the trio on the red carpet.
Good to see all the actors so excited to work on the show.
Short List had a chance to visit the Daredevil set and their report reveals quite a number of new details...
"Movies are two hours long -- you set it up, go in and get out," explains showrunner Steven S DeKnight, best known for his work on Spartacus. "This is very Marvel, in its size and scope. But because it's a television show, and because it's going on for 13 hours, you'll get to know the characters in a way you've never known any of them before."
The show's appeal also lies in characters you can't help but feverishly swap sides over: do you love Fisk because he (like many men) turns into an awkward mess when speaking to women he likes, or despise him because he later decapitates someone with a car door when it all goes wrong? Fisk is as comfortable in an art gallery as he is covered in blood, and it's terrifying. "There's no end to what makes him who he is," explains D'Onofrio, who looks like he's been plucked straight from legendary Daredevil writer David Mazzucchelli's pages. "In two sentences, Fisk can move from a child into a monster."
Actor Scott Glenn chatted with IGN about his role of Stick in the forthcoming Daredevil show on Netflix.
Daredevil fan Matt Binnie is well-known for his Matt Murdock cosplay and he's sent me some more pics to share!
Some really cool reproduction of the DD show's poster...

Here's a preview of DAREDEVIL #14...
DAREDEVIL #14, by Waid, Samnee and Wilson ships March 25th.
Make sure to look closely at this latest motion poster from Marvel's Daredevil... there are some easter eggs...
Underground Toys sent more details on the Daredevil Pop! Vinyls my way, so here's the official press release.
Marvel's Daredevil, will be hitting our screens this spring, with a new series starting on Netflix. So, what better time for Funko to unveil two new Daredevil figures, based on the comics, that will join their POP! Vinyl range.
The two figures are part of a collaboration between Funko and Underground Toys, Funko's European partner. This sees Underground Toys' involvement in the line grow to a new level and broadens Underground Toys' already existing Marvel portfolio.
The Daredevil POP! cover both his familiar red costume and, for all those hard-core Marvel collectors and fans, his lesser-known yellow costume, which he wore in his earliest comics appearances back in 1964. In the UK the yellow Daredevil is an exclusive available only at the home of all things comic - Forbidden Planet International. The red version will be widely available through EU speciality retailers and everywhere that sells POP!
Both are available for pre-order via Forbidden Planet International and will be available in store at selected retailers from June 2015 onwards.
Lots of updates today, with a new motion poster showing a cool transformation, some interesting details about the red costume, and actor Scott Glenn talks about taking on the role of Stick.
Comics Continuum had a chance to speak with Jeph Loeb, Steven DeKnight and Joe Quesada about the evolution of the Daredevil costume, and they confirmed the red costume will eventually make an appearance in the show.
From Joe Quesada:
"We had to come up with a logic for it. It was a delicate balance, because the stories we're telling are so real-world. Matt starts out in a homemade outfit that develops slowly. As he starts getting the crap kicked out of him on the streets, he adds padding little by little."
From Jeph Loeb:
"The idea was to back the story up to the point before Matt is Daredevil. Then we could take him to a place where some version of the red suit works in a grounded world. The solution is very exciting and makes complete sense."
For more info, check out the Comics Continuum site...
And finally, actor Scott Glenn talked with Nuke The Fridge about his role as Stick in the Daredevil show.
I took it seriously and I realized that I had to play this character not tongue and cheek but seriously and I had to deal with something that I.ve never had to deal with as an actor in my life, which is being blind. And all of a sudden I.m kind of playing a character like Zatoichi, the blind swordsman.
At the London Super Comic Convention this past weekend, there was a Daredevil panel with Klaus Janson, David Mack and Bill Sienkiewicz.
The trio spoke of their first Daredevil comics and their thoughts on the Daredevil movie from 2003.
They also spoke of their collaboration on DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS and Janson described his years on the title with Frank Miller.
Uproxx posted a new interview today with actor Vincent D'Onofrio, who was promoting his new movie Blind Horses, but spoke quite a bit about Daredevil.
On the Kingpin:
"There's so much in our show. And there's so much they're not giving away.
I mean, it gets so intense and so emotional. It's really quite something.
It goes to places you would never think it goes because of what Jeph Loeb
and Steven DeKnight wanted to do. It really does."
D'Onofrio also commented on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and his enthusiasm about the show on Netflix.
Marvel and Netflix announced some more cast members for the Daredevil show today, including actors for Turk and Melvin Potter!
Announced today were:
* Rob Morgan (Person of Interest) as Turk Barrett
* Matt Gerald (Dexter) as Melvin Potter

The Writers Guild Foundation will have a special panel on Saturday, April 18 with writers from the Daredevil show!
"After we've binge-watched DAREDEVIL a week before, we will sit down with the DAREDEVIL writers' room for a panel discussion on The Man Without Fear, the development of the first season, and how the writers' room was assembled!"
We knew about Steven DeKnight's involvement, but how about some of these other names?

Some new pics were released today, and we now get a better look at Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk... who, of course, becomes the Kingpin.
USA Today has a feature on D'Onofrio, and it sounds like he enjoyed this role as Wilson Fisk.
"I wanted him to have an appearance of being super-powerful so that when he throws a punch, it's a major punch," D'Onofrio says. "There's a lot of weight behind it."USA Today
Empire Magazine has a new feature in their latest issue out today (with a Daniel Craig cover) and it's a great write-up of their set visit to Marvel's Daredevil.

The second is an exclusive to Forbidden Planet, with Daredevil in his yellow costume!

Frank Miller, multiple Eisner Award-winner, is one of the finest and most influential comics creators of his generation.

Actress Drea de Matteo will be joining the Agents of SHIELD show this season as Karla Faye Gideon.
Now, Daredevil fans may recognize the name... the character made an appearance in the DAREDEVIL: REDEMPTION series in 2005, by David Hine and Michael Gaydos (go read it, it's good). Judging from the description in the press release, it's a departure from her character in this series, but will they somehow tie her back to Daredevil... and will Daredevil make an appearance in Agents of SHIELD?
Some updates from Diamond this week, and three issues of DAREDEVIL appear on the Shipping Update list.
DAREDEVIL #14 by Waid and Samnee is pushed back one week and will now ship March 25th.
DAREDEVIL #15 by Waid and Samnee will now ship two weeks later than its original date on April 29th.
DAREDEVIL #15.1 by Guggenheim, Krause, Samnee and Waid is now expected to ship three weeks later than expected, into May on the 20th.
May solicits will be coming soon, so DAREDEVIL #16's ship date may be moving as well.

Marvel has announced more casting for the AKA JESSICA JONES show, as actress Rachael Taylor will be playing best friend Patricia "Patsy" Walker.
Comics fans will know that Walker is also Hellcat, but in the show the character will be a talk show host, former model and TV star, who will help Jessica Jones on a dangerous case.
Taylor joins the already announced Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and David Tennant (Kilgrave). AKA JESSICA JONES will premiere later in 2015 following DAREDEVIL.
E!Online recently spoke with Charlie Cox on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, and the Daredevil actor had some revealing details about the costume he had to wear in the series.
"They've done such a great job. I can't wait for fans to really see it. But put it this way, there is no world where you change in a phone box. It takes four people and about 45 minutes."
He also talked about what happens when nature calls...
"You get three zippers. You zip them all up, but when you have to wee, you just have to zip one down -- the wee zipper."
More details at E!Online.com...
When the AKA JESSICA JONES series was announced, fans of the Alias series were anxious to hear if Killgrave the Purple Man would be a part of the show.
Today Marvel announced that actor David Tennant (Doctor Who) has been cast as the persuasive villain, who made his first appearance in the pages of DAREDEVIL in 1964, and recently had an appearance in the latest series by Mark Waid & Chris Samnee.

If you follow artist Peter Krause on Twitter (@petergkrause), you may have noticed some Daredevil artwork he's been posting recently. Yesterday I asked him when this project was going to be announced. He promised it would be today, and writer Marc Guggenheim would also be involved...
Fast forward to today, and we have the announcement from Marvel and an interview at Newsarama as well.
DAREDEVIL #15.1 will be a special issue shipping in April, which will feature a story by Guggenheim and Krause, a few pages by Mark Waid, and another new story written and drawn by Chris Samnee!
Newsarama has an interview with Guggenheim and Samnee, where the writers reveal both stories will be about Matt's early days as an attorney. Guggenheim, who currently writes for the ARROW show, is a former attorney and details how much of a DD fan he is. Samnee will be writing & drawing a Marvel story for the first time.
Marvel.com also has an interview with Guggenheim and Krause. They talk about the courtroom case and how it goes back to the days of the yellow Daredevil costume.
I'm writing this on the eve of January 16th. Nineteen years ago, I took a stab at learning HTML by making a site about my favourite comic character. And I kept updating the site...
I wanted to quickly say Thank You to all of you. I have been very lucky. I really do appreciate all the emails and comments, and I really do like helping Daredevil fans and helping new readers become Daredevil fans.
We've got a lot to look forward to this year!
April 10th! The Netflix show.
Who's taking over from Waid and Samnee?
Who's going to stay awake for 13 hours straight to watch the whole season? Don't say you didn't think about it yet.
Thank you once again.
Is my site old enough to drink now?
