Is there a difference? #Daredevilhttps://t.co/kZUvXEa5Fc- Daredevil (@Daredevil) February 14, 2016In 2015, Marvel kicked off the Netflix side of their cinematic universe with the first season of Daredevil. The show received an overwhelmingly positive critical response, and Marvel followed the series up with a second critically well-received series with the first season of Jessica Jones. Now Daredevil season 2 is the next release from Marvel and Netflix, with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and a Defenders team-up series set to arrive in the coming years.Daredevil season 1 followed Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) as he fought against Kingpin (Vincent D’Onfrio) in order to save his neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen in New York City. Season 2 will introduce other characters from Marvel Comics, including Elektra (Elodie Yung) and the fan-favorite anti-hero The Punisher (Jon Bernthal). A promo for Daredevil season 2 teases a new trailer for the Marvel Netflix series that will feature Punisher.The new teaser (above) released by Daredevil on Twitter features the head of the titular hero’s costume flickering in and out and changing into the logo for Punisher. Meanwhile, Bernthal can be heard speaking as Frank Castle a.k.a. Punisher, saying, “You know you’re one bad day away from being me.”Soon after Daredevil added Bernthal to the series as Punisher, season 2 showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie – who took over from Steven S. DeKnight – referred to the second outing of The Man Without Fear as “Daredevil vs The Punisher.” Reports about Punisher in season 2 have teased an exceptional portrayal of the anti-hero that will please fans – which may explain the rumors that Netflix and Marvel are developing an entire Punisher spinoff series, though it’s unclear when that would arrive if the reports turn out to be true.From everything we know so far about Daredevil season 2, it seems Punisher will play an integral role – likely filling in for Kingpin as Matt Murdock’s main antagonist for the season. Additionally, like the contrast between Daredevil’s way of cleaning up Hell’s Kitchen versus Kingpin’s in season 1, it seems season 2 will provide another comparison in the way that Matt Murdock and Frank Castle handle vigilante justice.Of course, although much of season 2 will likely be devoted to Daredevil facing off against The Punisher, the season will also see the introduction of the famed assassin Elektra as well as the return of Matt Murdock’s friends, Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), and Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson). But, though Daredevil season 2 will likely provide compelling returns to the season 1 characters and an introduction of Elektra to the MCU, the fight between Daredevil and Punisher will be the main attraction – one that we will hopefully get a glimpse of in the upcoming trailer.Next: Is Netflix’s Slate of Marvel Shows Getting Too Crowded?Daredevil season 1 and Jessica Jones season 1 are now available on Netflix. Daredevil season 2 will debut on Netflix on March 18th, 2016, followed by Luke Cage season 1 later in 2016. Release dates for Iron Fist and The Defenders on Netflix have not yet been announced.

Hollywood is always on the lookout for the next high-profile book-to-screen adaptation that might yield the next The Revenant, Gone Girl, or even the upcoming The Girl on a Train. While it’s true that award-worthy films have predominantly been the ideal endpoint for many of these adaptations, in recent years television has demonstrated an ability to utilize its potential for greater breadth and depth as a way to lure distinguished and not-so distinguished literary adaptations away from the sliver screen. And now that the limited series is the term du jour amongst many in the television industry, it looks as though multiple networks are looking to secure a deal to turn Jonathan Franzen’s Purity into a limited series starring Daniel Craig.The news is surprising for reasons beyond Craig’s involvement, as Franzen’s latest literary effort was only just published this past September, meaning the wheels on the adaptation were likely moving soon after the novel hit store shelves and quickly found its way onto the New York Times best seller’s list. Reportedly, the series is being shopped around at multiple networks, with Showtime, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and FX among the potential suitors for the project. All of the networks were supposedly sought out in the hope that one would agree to the 20-episode, direct-to-series order those behind the adaptation are currently seeking.According to Variety, the production comes from prolific producer Scott Rudin, who has had his hands in everything from The Social Network to Zoolander and its recent sequel. This is familiar territory for Rudin, as he’s produced a number of book adaptations, like Wonder Boys, Bringing Out the Dead, Angela’s Ashes, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and Joel and Ethan Coen’s Best Picture-winning adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s No Country For Old Men. While Rudin’s efforts have predominantly been in film, he has seen a shift to television as of late, most notably as a producer on Aaron Sorkin’s HBO series, The Newsroom.
In terms of Craig’s involvement, the news may only come as a surprise to those who were unaware the actor’s statements following his most recent outing as 007 in last November’s Spectre. Craig garnered a great deal of attention (negative and otherwise) for his comments regarding the role of James Bond and his future as the suave, globetrotting super spy. This would mark a shift for the actor who has reportedly been interested in doing more dramatic roles in line with what he would be doing in Purity.Purity would mark an interesting shift for both Craig and Rudin, and it would certainly be a significant get for any of the networks reportedly involved in the bidding war, as the winning network would land a potentially prestigious series with recognizable names already attached. Furthermore, the book was a bestseller from an author who has himself developed a reputation for being newsworthy beyond his status as an acclaimed author – an element that likely made the adaptation even more desirable for Rudin, Craig, and the networks.According to Deadline Rudin has tapped writer, director, and actor Todd Field (In the Bedroom) to adapt the series along with Franzen into what is being described as a dark comedy centering on a young woman named Pip who is drowning in student debt and eventually winds up being drawn into a narrative with two other main characters: a hacktivist named Andreas Wolf (Craig) and a dedicated American journalist named Tom Aberant. This would mark the first project from Field since the acclaimed 2006 film Little Children, itself an adaptation of the novel by The Leftovers author and series co-creator Tom Perrotta. That film demonstrated Field’s ability to handle dark, often funny material and still have it maintain a literary quality for those who were fans of the source material.

The last time Franzen’s name was attached to a potential series was in 2012, when Noah Baumbauch teamed with HBO to adapt the 2001 National Book Award-winning novel The Corrections. Baumbach’s series was to star Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Diane Wiest, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Greta Gerwig, and Rhys Ifans in a multi-generational story of a dysfunctional family. Although the pilot was produced, HBO ultimately passed on the series because, as Baumbach put it, it was “too complex” and “too expensive.”It sounds as though Purity is garnering a great deal of attention from several networks and streaming services. Given Craig’s involvement, the current state of television, the response to the novel, and the acclaim generally heaped upon Franzen, there is a good chance this ambitious adaptation will actually see the light of day.-Screen Rant will have more details regarding Purity, as they are made available.Source: Variety, Deadline, Studio 360

AMC’s The Walking Dead came back strong this past weekend after its midseason break. Over 13.7 million people tuned in for the midseason premiere to see the resolution of last November’s cliffhanger that left most of cast in one form of peril or another.Unfortunately for AMC, this was actually a drop from the nearly 14 million who watched that finale and a drop of around 12 percent from the comparable viewership of the previous year’s midseason premiere. Year-over-year viewership in the show’s target demographic of adults 18-49 showed an even larger drop of 15 percent, but there’s no reason for AMC to worry just yet.Part of the reason for The Walking Dead’s viewership drop can likely be attributed to when the midseason premiere aired this year compared to last year. This past Sunday was Valentine’s Day, and it was a holiday weekend to boot, with President’s Day following immediately after on Monday. The season 5 midseason premiere came a full week earlier on February 8, 2015, avoiding both the holiday weekend and romantic plans that might preclude watching survivors be attacked by a zombie horde. There was also some pretty solid competition on other networks, including two Valentine’s Day specials and the NBA All-Star Game.
The show being on the air for as long as it has also likely played a part; it’s reached a level of maturity where it has a strong core audience but isn’t drawing in huge amounts of new viewers. This isn’t even the first time that The Walking Dead has seen a drop in viewership, as the second half of season 5 experienced slightly lower demographic ratings and viewership than the first half. The season 6 midseason premiere garnering 13.7 million viewers and a 6.8 rating among adults 18-49 is still respectable, though, and the episode’s numbers will likely be bolstered once delayed viewing totals are figured in.This may well be the trend moving forward for The Walking Dead. Most long-running shows see their momentum level out or start to decline over time, and The Walking Dead has paved the way for other shows that weren’t around even a year or two ago when TWD was climbing in the ratings. There are other tense adult dramas, and even other zombie outbreak shows (including Fear the Walking Dead) that viewers can check out. Viewership will likely stay strong moving forward, but the show probably won’t pick up its previously unstoppable momentum again anytime soon. And there’s nothing wrong with that.The Walking Dead remains the top-rated show among its target demographic, and it was already renewed for season 7 way back in October. Recent seasons might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but that doesn’t mean the show will fade away anytime soon. Given how much material there is in the comics for the show’s writers to draw inspiration from, The Walking Dead will likely be around for several more years before AMC even starts to worry about ratings slips.Next: The Walking Dead Honest Trailer #2 Tackles Seasons 4-6The Walking Dead airs on Sundays on AMC.Source: Variety
[This piece contains implicit SPOILERS representing Amusement of Thrones available 6 and the Number cheaply of Flames and In jeopardy broadcast.]-The Ironborns begin the day encore as Sport of Thrones season 6 moves to Hibernia in behalf of a latchkey locality involving a extremely grave Greyjoy.
