There are no heroes or villains – Just different agendas on Netflix’s Daredevil

Promos online for Agents of SHIELD and The Flash next episodes

Marvel TV, DC TV… there’s room for love of all of it here at GeneralsJoes.

Tuesday nights are always exciting for comic fans, though many of them try to force some kind of conflict between the Marvel and DC universes rather than just embrace the fact that there’s actually a SHIELD and Flash television show both currently airing on TV. That’s a pretty cool thing in and of itself.

Promos have been posted for next week’s installments:

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 episode 14, ‘Love in the time of Hydra’

The Flash Season 1 Episode 16 ‘Rogue Time’

Avengers: Age of Ultron villain joins heroes in poster treatment

While Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver got their time in the sun over the weekend with new Avengers: Age of Ultron posters, it’s now the main villain’s chance for center stage.

Ultron himself has now appeared on his own Avengers movie poster, striking a familiar intimidating pose…

Daredevil Twitter Q & A with Kingpin himself, Vincent D’Onofrino

Agents of SHIELD brings former agent back to life?

Well, maybe, but maybe not.

The episode synopsis for upcoming episode “One Door Closes” and the episode features Lucy Lawless who made a splashy entrance, and even more shocking exit early in Season Two of the Marvel Studios television series.

Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver added to roster of Avengers posters

Promotional posters for the Avengers: Age of Ultron film have been popping up regularly over the past few weeks, and today the two Maximov siblings get added to the already impressive roster of characters.

Avengers-Scarlett-Witch Avengers-Quicksilver

It already seemed like a logistical impossibility to coordinate so many different high profile characters in the first Avengers film, but Joss Whedon handled it with grace, so now we’ve got even more characters added to the mix for the sequel.  Not only Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver, but the Vision as well.  Check out all of the posters revealed thus far below, and Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1st.

Agents of SHIELD Season 2, Episode 13 “One of Us”

After narrowly defeating a mysterious Kree warrior, Lady Sif has returned to Asgard and the SHIELD team must deal with the “aftershocks” of Skye’s revelation.  Meanwhile, dear old dad is assembling his own team of super powered villains to take revenge on Coulson and his team.

Check out the preview for Episode 13 of Agents of SHIELD below.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD 2×13 “One of Us” – Cal seeks revenge on Coulson by assembling a team of Super Villains to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. Meanwhile, May calls on renowned Dr. Andrew Garner (Blair Underwood), her charismatic ex-husband, with a crisis that threatens to tear the team apart, on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Tuesday, March 17th on ABC.

Daredevil Netflix series announces six more cast members

We’re just a month shy of Daredevil’s debut on the Netflix streaming service, and we’re still getting notifications of additions to the already impressive cast.

According to Marvel.com, we have a whopping six more characters to look forward to:

From the comics, Rob Morgan (“Person of Interest,” “Believe”) will play Turk Barrett, a smalltime criminal in Hell’s Kitchen, while Matt Gerald (“Avatar,” “Dexter”) will play Melvin Potter, a machinist caught between a rock and a hard place.

Siding with Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) are Peter Shinkoda (“Falling Skies,” “Hawaii 5-0”) as Nobu, a Japanese businessman with an agenda all his own; Wai Ching Ho (“Law and Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Blue Bloods”) as Madame Gao, a powerful woman running her own trade; and Nikolai Nikolaeff (“Camp,” “Sea Patrol”) and Gideon Emery (“Grimm,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2”) as Vladimir and Anatoly, two Russian brothers looking to forge new names for themselves in America.

The most notable name here is probably Melvin Potter, who is better known to Marvel Comics fans as Gladiator, one of Daredevil’s early villains.  All previews so far have been decidedly low on costumes and low on the typical comic themes… will this change that perhaps, or continue along the SHIELD route?

We know, thanks to this EW article that Daredevil will be sporting his familiar red costume at some point in Season 1, one must wonder if he’ll be dodging wrist-mounted buzz saws while he’s doing it.

We’ll find out soon enough!

Full length official Daredevil trailer sets the stage for April 10th launch

If the initial 1 minute teaser trailer for the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series was enough to whet your appetite, this latest full trailer will feel like a nice, long drink…

…but still not a full glass.  That glass won’t be full until I finish watching episode 13 somewhere in the second week of April.

The official Daredevil trailer was launched today through the Daredevil Twitter account, and it’s just as powerful and aggressive as the teaser. Featuring a lot more Wilson Fisk (but still no trademark red uniform, dangit!) this is a gritty, “in the streets” version of everyone’s favorite blind superhero.

April 10th. Can’t wait.
