Now that Marvel has conquered the cineplex, the studio is looking to take over the small screen too. At New York Comic Con today, the studio offered an intriguing first look at its new Daredevil TV series, which is set to debut on Netflix next year with Boardwalk Empire‘s Charlie Cox as the blind lawyer/superhero. Here are the highlights:
1. Finding Daredevil was a snap. Two years ago, when 20th Century Fox still owned the cinematic rights to Daredevil, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb says he received a call from Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada declaring that he had found the next Matt Murdock. The rights soon reverted to the studio, and Quesada’s first choice — Charlie Cox — indeed won the role.
2. Rosario Dawson may be the Night Nurse: The Comic Con panel, moderated by Loeb, featured the series’ entire main cast except for Rosario Dawson, whose previously undisclosed role was finally revealed. The Sin City star will play nurse Claire Temple, who will aid Cox’s Matt Murdock/Daredevil and may also take on the guise of another Marvel heroine. Loeb described her as a “nurse who works at night,” indicating that she may inherit the mantle of Night Nurse. Temple’s involvement is a bit of a surprise since she’s traditionally associated with Luke Cage, a.k.a. Power Man, a character for whom Netflix is developing a separate series. READ FULL STORY
Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Tuesday’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has turned the tables on Hydra.
While Agent Grant Ward has only appeared briefly in the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., new casting indicates audiences haven’t seen the last of the S.H.I.E.L.D.-turned-Hydra agent. In fact, the show will be offering more insight into Ward’s troubled family history later this season.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has assembled a number of gifted friends and foes for its second season. And with the recently released plot details for the upcoming season’s third episode, Phil Coulson and his team will also be hunting down a familiar foe.
When Agent Peggy Carter makes the transition to television this winter on both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, a few Howling Commandos and Strategic Scientific Reserve agents will join her. And with the latest addition to Agent Carter‘s cast, an important figure has been added that should tether the series even more firmly into the Marvel cinematic universe.
Brian Patrick Wade has been tapped to play Carl “Crusher” Creel, otherwise known as the Marvel villain Absorbing Man, on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Creel will “put Coulson and his team through their paces” in the season premiere, according to Marvel.com.
The Teen Wolf alum joins previously announced guest stars Adrianne Palicki, Lucy Lawless, Kyle MacLachlan, Reed Diamond, Nick Blood, Henry Simmons, and Simon Kassianides.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

Now that was a finale.
Are you recovered, agents? Have you had enough time to get some theories together? Are you asking yourself how the heck you’re going to wait until fall? (Or at least until Comic-Con, where we’ll hopefully get some new footage and insight about next season?) If you’re anything like me, I’m betting that you have questions. Questions that need answers. And although we can’t divulge much, we thought that it might be best to let the experts — S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeff Bell and executive producer Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television — share their thoughts. Read on for more. (And yes, although not finale related, we did ask about Buddy the Dog. In true Marvel fashion, both Bell and Loeb were coy about confirmation of his survival…but let’s just say that I choose to believe he’s living a long, happy life.)
The title of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season finale is “Beginning Of The End”: thus, it’s only fitting that the final piece of art in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven series should take us back to the start, with a design that replicates the way we were introduced to our team in the initial series poster.
