Late last week, news that Daredevil Season 2 might target Spy star and action hero Jason Statham for the villainous Bullseye was met with near-overwhelming acclaim, and today those million voices crying out have been suddenly silenced. Statham has apparently dropped out of Daredevil negotiations, and even taken a swipe at Marvel to boot.

Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil gave us a small peek under the mask with news that iconic assassin Elektra might throw her sais in Season 2, but the comic company may have hit a much bigger target. Marvel has reportedly set its sights on Jason Statham as Daredevil antagonist Bullseye, while the Man Without Fear’s second season may also set up a major Spider-Man connection.
Marvel’s TV universe has long-proven rocky to chart against the cinematic ventures, crossovers often occurring at face value, if at all. Now, a new report suggests that the TV branch may court a larger presence in the next few years, including new series outside of ABC and Netflix, a Doctor Strange crossover with The Defenders, and perhaps even a long-awaited Black Widow project.
These days, the only voice trumpeting Arrested Development Season 5’s Netflix future is that of executive producer Brian Grazer, last heard promising an impressive 17 episodes. Now, Grazer promises that the Bluths will band together as early as 2016, premiering Season 5 on Netflix sometime midyear.
Netflix’s Fuller House may not not have Michelle or either Olsen twin (or our respect, anticipation, interest ... ), but two mainstays of the Tanner household will indeed drop by Kimmy and D.J.’s new digs. Not only will Aunt Becky join Uncle Jessie at the Fuller House, but so too will Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner.
Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil draws much more from street-level crime dramas like The Wire than its Avengers predecessors, but that hasn’t stopped the parody parade from finding some fantastic fits. Daredevil, dressed as Law & Order, and frighteningly perfect at that? We’ll take eight!
If the premise of Netflix and the Wachowskis’ upcoming Sense8 series has you confused, you’re not alone. Neither are you alone by the June 5 premiere’s latest round of videos focusing on each individual character, and their awakening to seven other selves. Still confused? Maybe you should just watch.
Marvel’s renewal of Daredevil Season 2 threw off projections of how Netflix’s Defenders might unfold, but with ol’ Hornhead given a bit more breathing room, Season 2 may yet dive into some fan-favorites absent from the first year. Elektra seemed like the likeliest of targets, and may yet have been confirmed for 2016 via leaked audition videos.
This month on the show: Sleazy journalists, upstanding prisoners (of both the foreign and domestic varieties), moralistic killers, underhanded cops, and the first television show from the Wachowskis.
You don’t got it, dude. All of all the myriad questions posed by Netflix’s Fuller House revival series (primarily “what,” then “why”), fans of the classic ABC sitcom had to wonder if either of the Olsen twins reprise the role that first made them famous, Michelle Tanner. Sadly, that series finale horse-riding accident may yet have been more dire than mere amnesia.
