Apart from Jessica Jones, Daredevil will prove the Defender we’ve lost touch with the most, by the time Marvel’s four-way Netflix teamup debuts this summer. Season 2 left us on a semi-hopeful note of Matt making a surprise admission to Karen, but according to Charlie Cox, Matt will have taken things much further by the time The Defenders opens.

If Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events was going to hire Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, chances are they’d find a way to let him shine out from under all that makeup. Listen to Count Olaf sing (and look away), as Harris performs the dreadfully Unfortunate theme song for our new Lemony Snicket series.
Despite all we know of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and their respective casts, The Defenders has kept deadly silent on Sigourney Weaver’s mysterious villain. No longer, as new photos reveal not only said villain’s nom de guerre, but also some Luke Cage crossover, and more.
The already-streaming Marvel Netflix series have given us a taste of the four major superheroes paired up, but we’re nearing time for The Defenders to bring it all home. So it is, that Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist are all standing tall in a costume-happy first photo!
The broad-strokes version of Netflix’s unfortunately titled new film iBoy — “mild-mannered nerd acquires unlikely superpowers, which he then uses to fight crime” — may sound like a take on a story we’ve already heard a dozen times. But could Spider-Man intercept text messages? Could Batman hack into secret computer servers using only his brain? Does Superman have a charming British accent? The answer to these questions is no, no, and no. All will be rectified, however, when the new action picture comes to Netflix on January 27.
Chances are, you’re currently reading these words on a phone, computer, or tablet manufactured by Apple. Maybe on your morning commute, you listen to music downloaded from the ITunes Music Store. If you are an on-the-go sort of person who’s not afraid to be made fun of, you may have an Apple Watch wrapped around your wrist right now. The tech giant’s influence has permeated so many facets of modern life, and as we patiently await Apple’s big foray into the burgeoning field of teledildonics, they’ve announced plans to plant their flag on one more heated battlefield.
We’re far enough from the premiere that you’d barely remember Arrested Development Season 4 as one of the first Netflix original offerings, but at long last, Season 5 might finally escape its own arrested development. Producer Brian Grazer says the last cast hurdles have been cleared, and news should be “happening soon.”
Adapting Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events as TV affords Netflix the chance to plan out a much more thorough adaptation of Daniel Handler’s books, but don’t expect an exact translation. In fact, Handler himself has already begun work on which books to adapt in a second season, and how the central mystery changes when adapted for screen.
We’ve seen Amy Schumer take on her first HBO comedy special, and with Netflix making a monstrous purge into the genre, it was only a matter of time Schumer would make her next debut. So it is, that the Inside Amy Schumer star books a March premiere for a new standup special, and all in service of a Stranger Things Season 2 gig.
Netflix dropped a systemic shock on anyone anticipating Drew Barrymore and Justified alum Timothy Olyphant’s new Netflix dark comedy Santa Clarita Diet, revealing a cannibalistic and deadly twist to the premise in recent photos. Now, see for yourself in the first teaser for the premiere.
