04/18 - Rex Smith Daredevil show info

As most of you know, the Trial of the Incredible Hulk featured Rex Smith as Daredevil, and was going to be an unofficial way to introduce a Daredevil show... but that show never happened.

In this great video from IGN, there are interviews with many of the people involved with the Hulk TV movies, and Smith himself reveals the very surprising reason why the DD show didn't go ahead...

Apparently, CBS didn't want the Daredevil show to compete with their new superhero show The Flash, so they bought out Smith's contract from NBC!

2021/04/05/Epic-Collection-Update

04/05 - Epic Collection Update

Back in March we learned that the next Daredevil Epic Collection would be coming later this year via Near Mint Con.

Volume 16 would follow "Last Rites" but it was unclear what issues would be in the collection.

Info is now online via booksellers and now we have a better idea what's in store this November:

Who will claim the Kingpin’s empire? Wilson Fisk has fallen — and would-be crimelord the Owl sinks his talons into New York City! Meanwhile, the sinister Surgeon General slices her way through unsuspecting victims — and her next “patients” may be Daredevil and Spider-Man! But when Nelson & Murdock roll the dice on a big case in Las Vegas, DD finds a cabal of criminals looking to step into Fisk’s oversized shoes! With Tombstone, Hammerhead, Silvermane and Justin Hammer mingling with representatives of Hydra, the Secret Empire, the Hand and more, chaos is in the cards — and when violent vigilantes Nomad and the Punisher arrive in Sin City, all bets are off! Plus, can Daredevil defeat his own twisted doppelganger?

The collection will contain Daredevil (1964) 301-311, Daredevil Annual (1967) 8, Nomad (1992) 4-6, Punisher War Journal (1988) 45-47, material from Marvel Holiday Special (1991) 2.

Some of the creators in the TPB include DG Chichester, Glenn Herdling, Gregory Wright, Fabian Nicieza, MC Wyman, Ron Garney, Scott McDaniel and Pat Ollife.

Price: $44.99 ($56.99 Canada)
Pages: 472


Some other news to share...

DAREDEVIL #30 was to have a "Predator" variant by Bill Sienkiewicz, but it appears Marvel has cancelled orders for the Predator series (and all its variants).

Rumors online point to a November release, so we'll most likely see all of these resolicited sometime in September.

Also, a new printing of DAREDEVIL: YELLOW will be coming in August.

The DAREDEVIL BY CHARLES SOULE OMNIBUS is also now showing up on Amazon and other online booksellers. Scheduled for early September.

Sideshow has a limited Daredevil & Spider-Man print available for pre-order, with art by Felipe Massafera.

There are 375 copies for the print which is also available as a canvas print.

Sideshow presents the Daredevil and Spider-Man Fine Art Print, an original Marvel Comics-inspired illustration by artist Felipe Massafera.

Often partnering together in the pursuit of justice, these two masked marvels work tirelessly to keep crime off the streets of their city. In this detailed composition, Massafera captures the classic appeal of Matt Murdock and Peter Parker’s alter egos, with Spidey bathed in light as a friendly neighborhood hero and the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen cloaked in shadows to protect his territory from darkness.

Each Daredevil and Spider-Man Fine Art Print features an authorized, automated artist signature and an embossed Seal of Authenticity as a part of the limited edition of 375 pieces. Marvel fans won’t want to miss this exciting collectible team-up!

You can rest safely knowing your Marvel collection is under the protection of the Daredevil and Spider-Man Fine Art Print by Felipe Massafera. Bring these heroes home today!

03/26 - New Elektra Statue

Sideshow released an Elektra statue months ago, and this week they've released a new variant in her black costume.

Sideshow presents the Elektra Black Costume Variant Premium Format™ Figure, sneaking her way into your universe of Marvel collectibles.

The lethal assassin Elektra Natchios measures 23.5” tall, perched above the rooftops of Hell’s Kitchen on a base inspired by the gothic architecture of the crime-ridden city. Sculpted stone-like gargoyles and a decorative clear resin window set the scene for her next deadly mission.

The polystone Elektra Black Costume Variant Premium Format Figure is outfitted in an entirely sculpted costume as a dark reimagining of her classic look. The infamous assassin wears detailed gauntlets, boots, and a bodysuit all updated with a tactical, armored appearance. Elektra’s detailed portrait captures her dangerous beauty, complete with black hoop earrings, flowing dark hair, and a bandana cap with ribbons fluttering dramatically over her shoulder. She comes equipped with her famous twin sais in hand, and the figure includes an alternate raised right arm for an added display option.

Pair Elektra with other Hell’s Kitchen characters from Sideshow’s Marvel Premium Format™ Figure collection like Daredevil or The Punisher to create a dynamic display of vigilantes and reformed villains on your shelf. Limited to an edition size of only 300 pieces, this figure is a must-have for Marvel fans.

Set your sights on a new target and bring home the Elektra Black Costume Variant Premium Format Figure today!

03/22 - Echo Series in Development on Disney+

As you probably know, the HAWKEYE series is currently filming to air on Disney+ next year. Actress Alaqua Cox stars as Maya Lopez (Echo) on the show, and today it was revealed by Variety that a spin-off is in development for Disney+ for her character.

Etan Cohen and Emily Cohen will write and produce and apparently a writers' room has been assembled.

Obviously the Hawkeye connection is with Ronin, but will the Kingpin and Daredevil tie-in to this show? Will Echo even have an origin related to the comics origin? Once HAWKEYE is released we'll have a better idea...

Italian web site The White Space caught up with DAREDEVIL artist Marco Checchetto and discussed his current and past DD work!

Some highlights:

Working with Chip is very inspiring. He’s a great scriptwriter, he writes in a very detailed way and he knows what he wants, plus he’s also a good artist and we always end up influencing each other, especially when we’re working on the ideas for the covers. Sometimes we disagree on some feature, it’s something that can happen in a job like this: in the end, however, we always find the right way to bring the best possible work on the pages, at least… we hope so!

01/26 - Checchetto and Hawthorne Interview

DAREDEVIL #26 comes out tomorrow, and Newsarama had a chance to speak with DAREDEVIL artists Marco Checchetto and Mike Hawthorne about what's ahead for DD and Elektra.

Some snippets:

Marco Checchetto

"I am very happy to be working on this series. Daredevil is a character I love so much and Chip writes him so well that even though it's been two years, I still don't feel the need to draw anything else. In this long period we have given our vision to the series, introducing new characters or giving a precise designs to others. I hope these 25 issues, along with the ones we will do in future, will remain in the heart of the readers and beautiful part of the history of Daredevil."

Mike Hawthorne

"I like the visual contrast of Matt's scruff to Elektra's razor sharpness. DD's cast of characters are perhaps my favorite of all the Marvel U, and it's because of that kind of contrast. Plus, on the few occasions I've had to draw Elektra, I've played to that as best I can. Elektra is someone that should steal the show the moment she walks in a room, whereas Matt could be a guy you might miss if you weren't paying attention."

Good news is that Checchetto has no plans to leave the title and is still enjoying the book two years in.

DAREDEVIL #26 ships January 27th.

A few years after I started my site, and when he came onboard the title, he was always supportive of what I was doing. I have wanted to interview him for many years now, but scheduling was always a problem.

But when I asked him late last year if he'd be interested, he sent me back a note right away that he would make it happen.

I hope you enjoy this look back at his Marvel work, especially his legendary run with Alex Maleev. Thank you!

I've met a lot of fantastic people, had a chance to converse with many past and present DD creators. I've even appeared as myself in a comic, co-wrote a book for Marvel... it's been a dream come true.

I enjoy working on my site, and I realized it's been over half my life now. Some days it's a chore, but most days it's exciting.

I truly appreciate all the support, appreciate the notes I receive asking for info, asking for help... I've made this my second job, and many days, it's my "real" job.

To celebrate, I have a special interview with a former DAREDEVIL creator coming... just working on the transcription and will post very soon.

Once again, thank you, and I hope I can continue to help DD fans for many years to come.

01/15 - Charlie Cox Rumors, and Kevin Feige Comments

The Charlie Cox rumors are heating up. Kevin Feige had some interesting comments and reactions this week about the Netflix shows, and there's a rumor that Cox has filmed scenes for Spider-Man already. What is true, nobody knows for sure...

Deadline

Deadline spoke with Kevin Feige, and had this tidbit at the end of the interview:
DEADLINE: Will you ever revive any of the Netflix Marvel series like Luke Cage, or Jessica Jones, etc. or is that era completely over?

FEIGE: Well, certainly you’ve seen what we announced at Comic-Con a year and half ago and on Disney Investor Day a few weeks ago, so that’s our focus. But I’ve been at Marvel long enough to never say never about anything.

Kevin Feige was asked again about the Netflix shows, and specifically about Charlie Cox. The "non-answer" answer is priceless.

12/31 - Daredevil Year in Review

DAREDEVIL has had an interesting year... Issues #16-19 all shipped on time, but the pandemic caused a severe delay, as Diamond shut down for months and comic stores were unable to open due to quarantine.

April's DAREDEVIL #20 finally shipped by June and eventually DAREDEVIL #25 shipped by December. There was also a big reveal in the DAREDEVIL ANNUAL as well.

Speaking of DD#25, it caught retailers and fans by surprise, as the revelation inside caused the issue to skyrocket in price and several second printings were announced (coming in January).

There were some collections as well, as the third and fourth DD BY CHIP ZDARSKY shipped, a MAN WITHOUT FEAR Select edition, some Marvel Masterworks and more.

DAREDEVIL #16-25, Annual #1

MARVEL NETFLIX

The rumored "two year" non-use clause came and went, and it appears that Daredevil is being considered for small roles in the next Spider-Man, or She-Hulk, or none at all... everything is still a rumor at this point.

The Save Daredevil folks organized their own online convention and you can view all the videos here.

I make an appearance in the Discussing Daredevil: A Fandom Roundtable Podcast, where I pretend to be making sense while nervous.


What's ahead?

The site will be celebrating its 25th year in January! Working on some interviews that hopefully can be posted in time. I appreciate all of you who still visit all these years later.

Let's hope 2021 brings us relief from Covid-19. Wishing all of you the best in health. Talk soon.

12/31 - DAREDEVIL #21 Unpublished Variant

When Diamond shut down its distribution earlier this year because of the pandemic, several comics that had been solicited were outright cancelled when shipping restarted a few months later.

One of those comics was a "Dark Marvel" variant for DAREDEVIL #21 by Geoff Shaw. I found it listed on Felix Comic Art if you'd like to purchase it.

2020/12/09/Charlie-Cox-in-Spider-Man-3

12/09 - Charlie Cox in SPIDER-MAN 3?

Things have been certainly going crazy with casting rumors for SPIDER-MAN 3, which is currently filming. We have reports of Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Kirsten Dunst, Alfred Molina, Emma Stone and others all being a part of the movie.

And today, we got some rumors from Murphy's Multiverse:

Yes, Charlie Cox is reported to be in the next Spider-Man movie, most likely as Peter Parker's lawyer.

Grace Randolph has chimed in with more rumors as well:

So, what is true? Will all of this get confirmed in tomorrow's Disney earnings call? Will a trade publication confirm soon? Will Cox also show up HAWKEYE with Echo, or SHE-HULK? And is a show or movie on the horizon for Cox as Daredevil? Will any of the other Netflix cast get involved as well? Lots of questions and hopefully some answers are forthcoming.

2020/12/06/ETERNALS-1-Variant

12/06 - ETERNALS #1 Variant

In January, the new ETERNALS series will debut and there will be many, many variant covers (I've heard there are at least 37 so far).

It's unclear at this time why he's on the cover, but Daredevil appears on a variant by Takashi Okazaki.

If you are a DD completist, the code is SEP200596 and ships January 6, 2021.

2020/12/03/Echo-Cast-In-HAWKEYE

12/03 - Echo Cast in HAWKEYE

The HAWKEYE series for Disney Plus has been filming in NYC, and today VARIETY is reporting some new casting for the show.

Included in the list are newcomer Alaqua Cox and Zahn McClarnon.

Cox will be playing Maya Lopez, who we all know is Echo. This will be her first role onscreen. McClarnon will play her father, William Lopez, who went by Willie "Crazy Horse" Lincoln in the Parts of a Hole storyline by David Mack, Joe Quesada, Jimmy Palmiotti and Richard Isanove.

Not much is known about the actress, but by all accounts so far, she is Native American and deaf.

And it appears she has been spotted on set...

While Daredevil fans would have preferred to have the character show up in a Daredevil show, maybe there will be a connection to Wilson Fisk later which could lead to Daredevil... but right now, who knows.

Echo has the connection with Hawkeye as the former Ronin... might be going in that direction.

Joining the show along with Cox and McClarnon are Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Florence Pugh, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton. Jeremy Renner reprises his role as Clint Barton.

HAWKEYE does not yet have a release date on Disney Plus. Filming continues in NYC.

12/02 - DAREDEVIL 25 Spoilers

DAREDEVIL writer Chip Zdarsky warned readers on Twitter that issue #25 was going to sell out with a surprise revelation.

And he wasn't lying. Many stores were sold out and issues on eBay have been posted by scalpers trying to take advantage. Some of the variants are over $100.

So, what was the big news?

Yes, that is Elektra taking over as Daredevil.

But there's more to it, as it is shown there are some ulterior motives related to the Hand, Stick, and... The Red Fist.

Futhermore, you may want to check out KING IN BLACK #1 from this week too, as the new Daredevil makes an appearance there.

If you are curious to know how Stick is back, he returned during the events of SECRET WARS. You may want to also check out the FCBD SAVAGE AVENGERS comic to see an early story with Stick and Elektra.

The story continues in DAREDEVIL #26, which ships January 27th (8 weeks away).

Expect a second printing to be announced soon. More details when I get them.

2020/12/01/Zdarsky-Checchetto-Interview-DAREDEVIL-25

12/01 - Zdarsky & Checchetto Interview

This week's DAREDEVIL #25 promises to have some big surprises (really, there are big developments in the issue, so be warned of spoilers already out there!).

Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto were interviewed by Newsarama, and they discuss what's ahead (without getting into spoilers).

Some comments:

Checchetto: "Every one of Chip's pages is a challenge and I like when he writes "Ok Marco! A talking heads scene." When I read that, I know I can breathe for a couple of pages. [Laughs]

Issue #19 and #20 were difficult. The entire battle and the rendition of the 'new' radar sense were very challenging… but I know where we are going now and those issues are just a drop in the sea in comparison."

Zdarsky: "I'm really excited to show everyone what we've been cooking! The next year is going to be huge for Matt and the cast, and I can't stress this enough: regular readers should tell their shops to put issue #25 aside for them so speculators don't snatch them up.

Just trust me."

Really, he's not kidding. If you can avoid spoilers, try to do so.
