Netflix presented information about many of its shows at the Television Critics Association 2015 a few days back, and here's all the info you need for Daredevil, Jessica Jones and more.
The big news is from Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, who said we should expect new seasons of Marvel shows every 6 months.

Some new fan films to share!
First up, an excellent Daredevil vs Bullseye film, directed by Zero Kazama and written & directed by Adam MacLean... this is their vision of how Bullseye could be introduced to the Daredevil show on Netflix!
Next up, we've got a funny look at what the Punisher could be like in the Daredevil show, by NepotismTV!
And next, some funny films on some "leaked" Daredevil auditions, by Jared Bonner!
It didn't take long for photographers to catch a glimpse of Jon Bernthal on the Daredevil set.
The actor, who of course will be playing Frank Castle -- The Punisher -- is seen filming on a street location... but without his trademark costume.
Have a look at the links:
You may have seen the Body Issue that ESPN has published, where athletes showcase their physiques... now they have a Superhero edition, and Daredevil is included.
Drawn by Alex Maleev, the pic of DD can be viewed with a sliding motion to reveal more. Several other Marvel characters are presented, including Captain Marvel, Luke Cage and She-Hulk.
While the interview at The AV Club yesterday hinted at the characters coming in the new DAREDEVIL this October, this interview with writer Charles Soule at Marvel.com names the villains and the sidekick, and also the cast of characters at Matt's day job.
There's also a preview pic by Ron Garney that shows a slightly modified DAREDEVIL logo, as the "horns" have been removed from the second D.
Have a read:
There were hints of an exclusive Daredevil figure (or line of figures) coming this year from Walgreens, and it appears we've got our first look.
Here's a link on the Walgreens site.
And looks like The Fwoosh has a pic of the figure at SDCC!
More details as I get them...
She was hinted in season one, but now we've got official word from Marvel about Elektra... namely she's appearing in season two, and actress Elodie Yung will be playing her.
Yung has appeared in G.I. Joe: Retaliation (playing a ninja) and District 13: Ultimatum and several TV shows in France.
What do you think of the casting?
The AV Club has posted a new interview with forthcoming DAREDEVIL writer Charles Soule and artist Ron Garney.
The interview contains lots and lots of spoilers, so if you don't want to know what's coming in October, don't click ahead.
They discuss the new status quo, the secret identity, his job, and more details about Daredevil's new sidekick.
Photographer Shelly Kay took some pics of a film set called "Ringside"... and it appears Daredevil season 2 has started filming!

Marvel's booth at San Diego will have some exclusive items, including these special Daredevil T-Shirts for $25 each!
No word yet if these will be available at other shows or online later...
With Charles Soule and Ron Garney coming onboard in October, we're learning more about what to expect... from editor-in-chief Axel Alonso and Soule himself.
From Alonso, in his CBR column:
Charles and Ron come in with a vision for what they want to do with Daredevil. While this series definitely builds on what came before, they are going to leap headfirst into noir -- delving into the darker corners of Murdock's world without getting lost in it. And they are going to bring in a host of fascinating new characters that are going to make Daredevil's job a lot more complicated. Oh, and Charles is a practicing attorney, so expect Matt Murdock's closing arguments to be really on-point. And the rumor sites have one thing wrong -- that's not Gambit next to him.
From Soule, on Twitter:
So, I am writing Daredevil. I would have commented earlier, but I wasn't actually sure if it had been officially announced.
Following @markwaid and @ChrisSamnee is no joke, but @rongarney and I will do our damnedest to carry the torch. (And yes, pun intended.)
Speaking of @RonGarney, dear god, wait until you see his pages. Beautifully fluid. Dark. Whole bottles of ink being used.
I'll talk more about my take down the road, but I've been thinking about my version of Daredevil for years and years. This will be that.
It won't be She-Hulk, but my lawyerly background will still come into play in a big way. A very different kind of legal feel.
First two planned bad guys are new. And weird.
Also - THAT IS NOT GAMBIT. More on that fellow soon.
DAREDEVIL #1 by Soule and Garney ships in October.
Here it is, the pic from the preview book coming tomorrow in your comic store.
Charles Soule and Ron Garney are the new team on DAREDEVIL.
What are your thoughts? Head on over to the message board!
The mystery of who is taking over on DAREDEVIL seems to have been leaked before the July 1 previews that Marvel was going to release.
Bleeding Cool is reporting that writer Charles Soule will join artist Ron Garney on DAREDEVIL in October.
Obviously this will be confirmed, possibly tomorrow, as comic stores get their shipments Tuesday in preparation for Wednesday sales.
If true, what do you think? Soule is an attorney and had a great stint on SHE-HULK (which also featured DD as a guest-star) and Garney has worked on DAREDEVIL previously on the classic "34 Hours" story with Dan Chichester in issue #304.
And what's this news about an apprentice? Hmmm...
The team behind the great titles for Marvel's Daredevil, Elastic, took some time to discuss the concepts and design for the sequence that precedes every episode on Netflix.
Many thanks to Director Patrick Clair, Executive Producer of Elastic Jennifer Sofio Hall and CG Supervisor Andrew Romatz. Many thanks to them, and also Head of 3D Kirk Shintani!
I hope you enjoy the interview!
Here's a preview of DAREDEVIL #16!
DAREDEVIL #16, by Waid, Samnee and Wilson ships June 24th.

It will be 24" x 36" and cost $99. No word yet on who the artist is and if it is part of a Marvel set of cards.
September 2015 solicits are now on the site, and we've got DAREDEVIL #18 after a one month delay.
Is this the final issue for Waid/Samnee/Wilson and the final issue of DAREDEVIL before the relaunch after SECRET WARS?
The Frank Miller Artifact Edition is coming soon, and here's a sneak peek of the variant cover from IDW.
The book is 12" x 17" and will feature over 20 covers and several pages by Miller from Daredevil and other titles. It will be 144 pages.
With all the rumours of Elektra auditions, and the Jason Statham as Bullseye reports, today's official news of former Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal as Punisher is surprising news.
Bernthal will portray Frank Castle in the second season of Marvel's Daredevil.
"Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. "Castle's appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same."Marvel.com
The Defenders Podcast had me on as a guest on the weekend, and we discussed Episode 9 of Marvel's Daredevil.
Many thanks to Claire and the gang. Lots of good views and commentary, and some Canadian guy tried to sound intelligent.
June 10th will see the release of SECRET WARS JOURNAL #2, which has a story by Simon Spurrier and Jonathan Marks, which features a version of Daredevil and Elektra.
Check out the preview at CBR, which gives a new meaning to "Hell's Kitchen".
Don't forget, there is another Secret Wars tie-in called Secret Love, that will have a Matt, Karen Page and Typhoid Mary story by Michel Fiffe coming soon!
Late last night, Latino Review posted a rumour that Jason Statham was in talks to be Bullseye in the second season of Marvel's Daredevil.
The report also suggested that Mr. Fear and Mysterio will also appear next year, along with Elektra.
Latino Review also says that filming will start later this month or in July.
Today, Marvel debunked the rumour, saying there was no truth to it at all.
Earlier today, Marvel revealed that coming later this year, there will be close to 60 new #1 issues.
These series will take place 8 months after the events of SECRET WARS. Does this mean we are getting Volume 5 of DAREDEVIL?
More details here:
And tonight, Marvel released another teaser, this time with a Shadowland/Netflix-inspired Daredevil featured... is it Matt Murdock?
I know many of your collect Marvel's Daredevil features in various magazines. Here's a rundown of some recent ones I've found in Sci-Fi, Total Film and American Cinematographer.
Friday's Axel-in-Charge column at CBR has a first look of DAREDEVIL #16.
The issue ships June 24 by Waid, Samnee and Wilson, and the textless preview shows about 3 pages.

TV Guide has an interview with actor Elden Henson, where he speaks about his role as Foggy Nelson.
The magazine has the headline of "Why Foggy Nelson is Daredevil's Unsung Hero".
"The cool thing about playing Foggy is he really is a good guy," Henson says. "He talks a lot and cracks jokes and you think he's not taking things seriously, but he is. I think you see he's got a big heart. He cares about people and he really wants to do good. That's why he got into law. He really believes in what's right. He's probably the most idealistic of everyone, even Matt."
Read the rest of the interview:
