When Marvel's Netflix shows were first announced last year, it was quickly became clear what their model would be. The shows would focus on smaller scale heroes —Daredevil, Powerman, Iron Fist, etc.— before culminating with a Defenders team-up mini-series. If that plan sounded a lot like the template Marvel used to get marquee characters into "The Avengers" film, that's because it was meant to. If you had any doubts that Marvel wouldn't fix what wasn't broke, an interview with Netflix honcho Ted Sarandos in Empire (via Latino Review),confirmed that his company's plan will follow the mould of the feature films.

Guardians Of The Galaxy
The Marvel-verse continues to expand and all you can do is get out of the way. And while Marvel has their next batch of movies planned through 2019, their current baby is this week's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" (our review). A sequel is already set for 2017, and it looks like they are feeling confident enough audiences will want even more, a small screen version of the heroes is in the works.

Deborah Ann Woll Daredevil
For the handful of seasons of the already trashy "True Blood" that I managed to stick it out with until it truly went off the rails, one of the undersung cast members was Deborah Ann Woll. She made the most of her arc as a virginal woman turned into a vampire, who then has to deal with the double whammy of a sexually rapacious appetite with a need to feed, and certainly made much more of whatever was on the page. Hopefully she can do the same for her next gig.

The cast of the Netflix series of Marvel's "Daredevil" is beginning to take shape and it ... looks like the cast of a TV show. Which isn't a bad thing at all, just an observation, and at least with more recognizable names than whoever those people are on "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Vincent D'onofrio, Daredevil, Kingpin
Vincent D'Onofrio has a very... distinct on-screen persona. Basically, he excels at playing eccentric, emotionally detached characters, who are perhaps more internally complex than outwardly flashy. So while he wouldn't initially seem like a no-brainer choice to play a Marvel baddie, there is something inspired about the choice.

Daredevil Charlie Cox
Even with Drew Goddard exiting "Daredevil" over the weekend, the show at Marvel goes on. After all, one person can't stop a terraforming franchise monster, and the comic company shows no signs of slowing down their plans to dominate all media, and their next target? Netflix. With a handful of projects brewing for the streaming service, the most high-profile and first out of the gate will be "Daredevil" and a leading man may have been found.

What the hell is going on over at the house of Marvel? Well, after the exit of Edgar Wright on “Ant-Man” it surely doesn’t sound very good. Over at another Marvel property, this time destined for television on Netflix, Drew Goddard has reportedly left the super hero project “Daredevil.”

Daredevil Drew Goddard
There have been many keys to Marvel's massive success, but one of them has been knowing which of their characters work for the big screen, and which might be better suited to TV. And it has led to some interesting decisions. If you had told us a while back that a "Guardians Of The Galaxy" movie would happen instead of "Daredevil," we would've said you were crazy, but that's just one of the many risks the comic studio has taken. And indeed, with Matt Murdock being prepped for a Drew Goddard-penned Netflix series, it looks like we'll be getting a fresh take on the character last seen inhabited by a regretful Ben Affleck.

Even though the release date for "Batman Vs. Superman" has been pushed to 2016, production hasn't been delayed by any significant measure, with filming still slated to start this spring. And while we're yet to see if this means an even bigger sequel or perhaps something more for the cast members, it amounts to more time they'll have to spend artfully answering questions without giving anything away. And so, perhaps it's not a shock that when Ben Affleck sat down with Playboy, he couldn't say much, though he did confirm the longstanding rumors that his Bruce Wayne won't exactly be a young playboy.

According to "The Secret," all you need to do to be successful and get everything you want in life is to put those good vibes out there. And whether or not he's read the bestseller, it seems to have worked for Drew Goddard. “You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his wall while growing up," he told Collider over the summer when asked about the franchise. "Even when I was 18, I still had the blood red door with the, ‘I have shown him that a man without hope is a man without fear.’ That was what I loved and so it’s the sort of thing that if we can find the right project, I would love to do it.” And so, here we are ...
