Earlier today, the Daredevil Twitter account innocuously asked folks if they had any questions for actor Vincent D’onofrio, who plays nefarious gangster Wilson “The Kingpin” Fisk in the upcoming Netflix Daredevil series.
Now, the Daredevil Twitter account has posted a little snippet of a video from the same D’Onofrio telling us to tune in tomorrow for something that “we’re going to love”.
When it comes to Daredevil, there’s a LOT I could love. I’ll be tuned in, that’s for sure.
Every once in a while we do a call in episode to mark significant events in the What’s on Joe Mind podcast. For obvious reasons, Episode #100 is one of these.
Over on the WOJM Facebook Page, Gary has posted the details of the Call In Show, check them out below! Talk to you then…
If you would like to join us for our 100th episode recording as a caller, here is what you do.
1.) Get Skype
2.) add Chuckdawg1999 to Skype (try to do this by this coming Monday).
3.) Make sure to test your audio before hand. A nice USB headset would be perfect, but really any old set will do for a little bit.
4.) Be online starting at 9pm EST on Wednesday, March 11, 2015
5.) When you see Chuck online, be sure to let him know you want to be on the show. Chuck will let you know what number you are in the order. Be ready with a question or topic you would like to talk about. You will also be part of the show as we will still be doing the news and other regular segments, so be ready to participate.
If you have any questions, just ask below. It’s late and I may have forgot something.
Lastly, one of our original hosts, Greg, will be joining us for #100. Be sure to ask him what’s he’s been up to!
Today the G.I. Joe Collectors Club revealed the final boxed set figure for the 2015 G.I. Joe Convention, and it’s General Mayhem! The original back in 2005 used Gnawgahyde’s head with a glued on helmet from Long Range, while this version features a totally new head sculpt and officer’s jacket. The jacket is pretty exciting and could potentially be used for any number of different uses in future FSS or Convention sets.
Check out GIJoeCon.com for the latest and the image is mirrored below.
Observer.com has posted a Spring Arts Premier for the year and rates what they believe will be the top seven Television premiers. It’s pretty tough to label Daredevil as a “Television” premier, though they include it in their list as one to watch.
Not only that, but they speak more specifically on the fight sequences and say:
I know it’s still early in the year, but I’m calling it now: The most beautifully choreographed fight scenes of 2015 will be on Netflix, courtesy of Marvel’s Daredevil. We’ve seen the first four episodes, and this show is like no other comic book adaption on the small screen yet. The beauty of Netflix is the freedom it allows—Daredevil gets as dark as the source material requires. It’s so dark, it’s almost a better Batman show than Gotham, and that show actually has Batman in it. If nothing else, Daredevil will rule the comic book TV landscape for years to come.
That seems like pretty high praise indeed.
Daredevil hits Netflix in its entirety on April 10th.
This marks the first time we see him without the beret, and with a nice close up of his angry, tooth-filled grimace. As we’ve all come to expect from Boss Fight Studio, it’s a really nice looking sculpt and will be especially great in hand.
EDIT – Ah, the perils of the rumor mill… El Mayimbe is already backing down on his supposition about Sam Strike, based on some inside conversations, so I guess it’s time to hold back on these particular rumors.
But hey, at least it gave me an excuse to post that awesome GIF.
I’ll admit, I don’t know him myself, but the always reliable Umberto Gonzalez at Latino-Review put some puzzle pieces together over on Instagram that certainly lead some credence to this rumor.
After all, Latino-Review was the first site to break the rumor that Spider-Man would possibly be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe at all, so I feel pretty confident in their ability to assemble these clues into something cohesive.
Sam Strike hasn’t had a wealth of film experience, but he fits the age bracket and the look. Check out his IMDB page and let the rumor mill keep churning.
