01/17 - WAR SCROLLS

You may have already heard Daredevil was going to be part of the new Marvel event WAR OF THE REALMS...

Today we found out through Newsarama that Daredevil will feature in a new mini coming in April entitled WAR SCROLLS.

Each issue will have a main story with Daredevil written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Andrea Sorrentino.

There will also be backup stories, including one by Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones with Howard the Duck.

2019-01-16-Save-Daredevil-Interview

01/16 - #SaveDaredevil Interview

And here's the second interview for today, a chat with the team for #SaveDaredevil, the campaign to bring back the Daredevil show with its former cast and crew.

A lot of the cast have shared their work on social media, and the petition is now closing in on 200,000 signatures.

I asked them why they are working so hard on this initiative, and also some of the misconceptions people have about their site.

01/16 - Jed MacKay Interview

Here's the first interview today to help celebrate the site's 23rd anniversary!

I had the chance to speak with writer Jed MacKay about his MAN WITHOUT FEAR series (issues #3 is out today!). If you haven't had a chance to read the first few issues, they are a really good look into the mind of Matt Murdock.

We talked a lot about the themes in the series. Hope you enjoy the interview!

01/16 - 23 Years of Man Without Fear

Another year has passed and the site is now 23 years old. Every year I struggle to find the right words to describe what it's been like to work on this thing for so long.

In all honesty, it has its ups and downs. Some days it feels like I'm doing all this work for "nothing" and other days I marvel at some of the luck I've had, like interviewing so many people or helping new DD fans out.

I've known a lot of you for over 20 years and I've never met you in real life. That's crazy, right?

It's still "fun" so until it stops being fun, I will continue promoting this great character and hopefully get more people to become fans.

To help celebrate the 23 years today, I'll be posting two new interviews, so check back later!

As always, thank you,

2018-12-30-Daredevil-Year-in-Review

12/30 - Daredevil Year in Review

2018 started out with excitement for Daredevil fans, as Charles Soule's run on the comic had just been renumbered back to its legacy numbering and the Netflix show was filming its third season.

By the end of the year, the comic had ended with issue #612, and the show's third season was its last.

THE COMICS

DAREDEVIL #597-612

There were also several other DD-related comics this year, like the following:

HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: WEAPON LOST #1-4

(Daredevil also appeared in HUNT FOR WOLVERINE #1 and the DEAD ENDS #1 epilogue)

INFINITY COUNTDOWN: DAREDEVIL #1

DAREDEVIL ANNUAL #1

MARVEL KNIGHTS #1-4

AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL #1

By November, the comic ended and news was released about a relaunch in 2019 by Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto!

But before that, a MAN WITHOUT FEAR weekly series will come out in January by Jed MacKay and Danilo Beyruth.


THE NETFLIX SHOW

After IRON FIST Season 2 came out in September, Netflix finally revealed that DAREDEVIL Season 3 would be released October 19th.

Netflix provided the site with a preview screener and I posted my review in early October:

DAREDEVIL Season 3 Review

Netflix also provided the site with promotional images:

I also had the chance to interview a lot of people involved in the show and the comics this year, including a special interview with Charlie Cox!

DAREDEVIL Canceled on Netflix

Daredevil fans have banded together to try to convince the powers that be to revive the show with its cast and crew. The RenewDaredevil.com campaign started just prior to the cancellation, and has now turned its attention to #SaveDaredevil.

RenewDaredevil.com

According to reports, Marvel cannot use the Netflix characters until two years has passed after cancellation. So, the earliest we can see a DD show is 2020... will it be on Hulu, Freeform, or even the new Disney Plus? Let's hope we find out soon.

See you all in the new year, and maybe there will be some features for the site's 23rd anniversary in January!

12/20 - Peter Halpin Interview

It's been a busy year for interviews, and just in time for the holidays is a new interview with Theo Nelson himself, actor Peter Halpin.

We talked about working with the extended Nelson family and he also commented on the recent cancellation of the show.

Many thanks to him for the opportunity.

12/19 - DAREDEVIL March 2019 Solicits

The solicits for DAREDEVIL are still wrapped in mystery, and the "covers" being presented are not the covers yet, they are promos by writer Chip Zdarksky.

So, you're not going to find much info on the comic itself, but have a look at the promo and the tagline "The Man Without".

Disney's chairman of direct-to-consumer and international, Kevin Mayer, spoke with Hollywood Reporter about the FOX deal and what is coming from the Disney+ service.

But for Daredevil fans, there was one question that will be of interest...

Q: Would you consider reviving the Marvel shows that Netflix canceled?

A: They are very high-quality shows. We haven't yet discussed that, but I would say that's a possibility

12/11 - DAREDEVIL Sales Data

Sales data for DAREDEVIL has been updated up to the milestone #612 issue.

There was a slight jump with the start of the "Death of Daredevil" arc, and a bigger jump (with multiple variants) for the final issue of volume 5.

It is also concerning to see the sales go below 23K... let's see how the new #1 does in February.

2018-12-10-Netflix-Shows-Selling-Wardrobes

12/10 - Marvel/Netflix Selling Show Wardrobes

Today I learned from a source in the NYC film industry that Marvel/Netflix is selling clothing from DAREDEVIL, LUKE CAGE and IRON FIST.

It appears to be an industry only sale, advertising "coats, dresses, shoes, you name it" from all three shows.

There are $1, $5, $10 and $15 racks (and the racks are on sale too), and only credit/debit is accepted.

The sale started today and continues until Friday at a location in Brooklyn.

It isn't clear if this sale also includes costumes, but it does mention "uniforms", which leads me to believe this includes things like FBI jackets and maybe ninja outfits?

Nevertheless, for fans hoping that a Season 4 could be salvaged, this doesn't look good.

It also isn't clear who is selling the clothing... is it Netflix or Marvel?

2018-12-06-Charlie-Cox-Talks-Cancellation

12/06 - Charlie Cox Discusses DAREDEVIL Cancellation

DAREDEVIL was cancelled a week ago and we had yet to hear any comments from Charlie Cox... until now. Entertainment Weekly discussed the cancellation with the actor, and Cox had some very personal takes on what has happened...

"...these characters mean a lot to people. It’s weird to think there’s a chance I won’t be playing Matt Murdock ever again. That’s a bizarre feeling, because that character has been such a huge part of my life for the last four and a half years.”
