Daredevil (2015) Ep. 2: Cut Man

An important difference between the portrayal of Daredevil and most other superheroes is that he’s human–a well-trained, durable human with a radar sense and enhanced hearing–but all too human nonetheless. Which is why ‘Cut Man’ begins with him in a dumpster, after a fight with opponents we never actually see. The story goes into Matt’s relationship with his father, […]

The Ugly Side Of Fandom

If you’ve seen videos of cosplay or the various ‘Cons’ the first thing you notice is that they feature all sorts of quirky, colorful (and often brilliant) costumes, which is why it’s understandable if you thought that that was what comic geek culture was all about (besides costumes and the–virtual–worship of certain movies and comic characters).

Steven DeKnight On ‘Daredevil’

‘Big Hero 6’ Teaser Trailer

 For the first time Pixar is taking on a Marvel property.  Big Hero 6 is a superhero team that–at least in the comics–has ties to Marvel’s X-Men.  In fact, the comic where they first appeared was called “Sunfire & Big Hero 6.” Sunfire being a mutant from the X-Men comics. And seeing that connection and the fact that mutants, […]
