Daredevil Season 2 Promos Highlight Foggy Karen in Hell’s Kitchen

Daredevil Season 2 Promos Highlight Foggy s KitchenIn just a little under a month, Netflix audiences will go back to Hell’s Kitchen as the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil hits the streaming service. Anticipation for the second season is already running high, given the outstanding critical and audience success of both Daredevil’s inaugural season and its sister series Jessica Jones – further solidifying Netflix’s standing as a provider of original content. The bar has been set sky high and Daredevil’s second season has a lot to live up to.Blessedly, there seems to be little reason to think Daredevil season 2 will disappoint, and the intensity already seems to ramping up nicely. Joining series stars like Charlie Cox and Rosario Dawson in season 2 are Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Elektra Natchios and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) as Frank Castle/The Punisher. While the addition of these heavyweight characters adds to the anticipation for the upcoming season, a series can be made or broke on the strength of its side characters, and there can be no denying that Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page and Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson helped make the first season stand out as much as it did.Netflix released two new spots showcasing Karen and Foggy in the final run-up to Daredevil season 2’s premiere. While the new ads add little to our understanding of what to expect from the new season, they certainly help fuel the hype machine and, at the very least, portend interesting roles for both of the series’ main side-characters. Check them out, above and below:Described as character sketches, these Daredevil season 2 promos are intended more to provide insight into the roles of each character than insight into series specifics. Karen sits amidst a pile of paperwork topped with a skull – alluding both to her work with Matt Murdock as a legal assistant and hinting at the specter of death the looms over her – as she looks over the Punisher’s sign. Meanwhile, Foggy walks through a darkened alley, looking backwards towards an off camera yell – one that, in all likelihood, results from The Punisher’s work on the streets of Hell’s Kitchen.Both of these sketches build on the characterization from Daredevil season 1. Karen, of course, was framed for murder and gotten off by the legal team of Nelson and Murdock. Foggy spent most of the season in the dark regarding his partner’s superheroic activities, choosing a different path to fight the evils of man. These new ads definitely add ambiance to the marketing campaign for season 2, and give us little doubt that the new season will be every bit as fantastic as its predecessor.NEXT: Daredevil Season 2 TrailerDaredevil 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 Jessica Jones season 2, Iron Fist, and The Defenders on Netflix have not yet been announced. We’ll keep you updated on the Punisher spinoff as development continues.Source: Marvel/Netflix

The Flash: Jaws-Themed Trailer Teases King Shark’s Return


The new trailer for the episode (above) reveals a rather humorous take on next Tuesday’s episode, ‘King Shark,’ including a homage to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, complete with the movie’s classic score and logo. King Shark himself is only teased in the promo, but it’s safe to say we’ll get some good action with the character, despite the season’s tight budget.Other than the reappearance of King Shark, next week’s episode will be important for another reason: It’ll be the first time Diggle crosses over to The Flash without Oliver Queen, and the first time Lyla appears on the show. While Diggle has guest starred on the series twice already, it’s always been opposite the Green Arrow. It should be interesting to see Diggle’s character interact with The Flash cast sans Oliver. Hopefully, only bigger things are ahead for him.Another big item that might come up in Tuesday’s episode is Diggle getting a helmet update, courtesy of the S.T.A.R. Lab’s crew. Ramsey recently teased that “Central City will be working on an upgrade to Diggle’s helmet.” While he didn’t say when the new helmet would appear, chances are it’ll happen in this episode.The Flash airs Tuesdays @8pm on The CW. Arrow airs Wednesdays @8pm on The CW. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursdays @8pm on The CW.Source: The CW, IGN

Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Teaser: No Safe Harbor

Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Teaser: No Safe HarborWhile Fear The Walking Dead doesn’t have the same drama and zombie action as the main Walking Dead TV show, it marches on with an impressive main cast that includes Kim Dickens as Madison and Cliff Curtis as Travis. There are a few bits and pieces that have the potential for high drama, like Madison dealing with her heroin-addicted son Nick (Frank Dillane), but the spin-off series still needs to find its footing after a shaky and brief season one.Fear The Walking Dead comes back in April and finds our group of mixed family survivalists about to board a high-class yacht, which is owned by the mysterious Victor Strand (Colman Domingo), a wealthy man whom Nick helps escape from a military internment camp. The family doesn’t have anywhere else to turn, as southern California is on the brink of collapse and in danger of being overrun with man-eating zombies. But now they’re on a luxury boat, will everyone be safe from the undead? Probably notAMC has released a very brief teaser trailer (via EW) that gives fans of Fear The Walking Dead an idea of what’s to come in season 2. The teaser features quick cuts of the TV show’s characters on a yacht, as they come in contact with a raft of people looking for help and salvation. It’s more than likely that there’s at least one infected person on that raft, and the characters on Fear The Walking Dead don’t have the same instincts and cunning to survive as the characters on the main show.Showrunner Dave Erickson told EW that the biggest difference between the two zombie apocalypse TV shows is seeing how people survive and continue to live during different time periods of the zombie outbreak. The characters on Fear The Walking Dead are still hopeful that they can go back to a normal life, but the characters on The Walking Dead have accepted the reality and just hope to live for another day. Erickson explained:“You’re going to see a bunch of seabound refugees over the course of season 2. And much in the same way that we have taken steps to survive and compromised our morals to do so, we’re going to have to deal with some people who have very similar objectives, and the default setting for most of these people is not going to be, let’s all live in harmony and try to build a new community. It’s going to be, how do we protect what’s ours? How do we protect our family? So there’s going to be a very serious threat from other people, as there is constantly on The Walking Dead.”While there were some good moments in season 1 of Fear the Walking Dead, it seemed like the showrunner and writers needed to juice up the show with more zombies to make things more interesting and exciting. Season 2 will surely deliver the promise of the zombie apocalypse, but it feels like I’m actively rooting for the zombies to kill off the survivors on Fear The Walking Dead because I know where it’s going to lead, whereas I’m rooting for the group to survive the apocalypse on The Walking Dead because they’re smarter and they continued to live for this long.The two-part season two premiere of Fear the Walking Dead airs April 10 on AMC.Source: EW

Legends of Tomorrow Review: The Backup Plan

Legends of Tomorrow Review: The Backup Plan[This is a review of Legends of Tomorrow season 1, episode 5. There will be SPOILERS.]–There was quite a bit of discussion and rumination on codes, credos, and humanity throughout this week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow. With the fate of the world – and the lives of three teammates – hanging in the balance, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) grappled with sacrificing the few to save the many. Though separated from one another, both Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) stuck to their thieves code, while ultimately expanding those rules to include the rest of the team.In ‘Fail-Safe’, directed by Dermott Downs and written by Beth Schwartz and Grainne Godfree, Sara and Snart go on a rescue mission to save Ray, Mick, and Stein from the Russian gulag. In an effort to keep the Firestorm technology from scientist Valentina Vostok, Sara is tasked with killing Stein should the rescue mission fail. Meanwhile, Ray and Mick try to survive in prison using very different methods, and Jax and Kendra team up to create a backup plan.Code of Honor

Still angry that Rip ordered him to leave Mick and Ray behind during the fight at the lab, Snart easily identifies Rip’s contingency plan and in the process highlights a much larger conflict that is shaping up to be the central point of contention between Rip and the team: is their captain really just using them as pawns in his larger game with Vandal Savage? Clearly impacted by Carter’s death, there is still not much distinction between how much Rip is willing to sacrifice in the name of the greater good and his desire to protect his team. It is Snart’s code to never leave a man behind that turns him from the snarky thief to the voice of reason.Snart’s urging to not shoot Stein because Sara is no longer a killer not only adds a nice layer of emotional connection between the two, it also has shades of an Arrow relationship in its early stages. Though it is far too early to compare the burgeoning friendship of Snart/Sara to the Season 1 angst of Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak, it does follow the same pattern of broken souls gravitating to people who harness their light, and see the good in them. That’s something that could be significant down the road, as the two shows share multiple executive producers.Over the first four episodes we have seen Ray repeatedly cling to his own code of squeaky-clean ethics, often to the determent of the team. We see this play out again in the gulag, only this time he doesn’t need Snart to beat some sense into him, he’s got his fellow inmates for that. For the first time we see how Ray’s morals, his choosing his team – and Mick specifically – over his own survival truly make him a hero in his own right. It’s a nice win for a guy who hasn’t yet excelled in heroic field work.The Great Escape

The team’s collaboration to break their friends out of jail displayed just how powerful they are all working together. Even as Kendra struggles to distinguishing herself from her counterparts, she is slowly beginning to be a more active part of the team. While her main asset still seems to be her ability to kill Savage, she was at least working with Jax on the rescue operation. Her optimism and faith in her friends hint at a more layered character underneath, though it would have been nice if she had more to do than drop off Jax and stalk away from Savage.The stakes in this episode are huge: save/kill one man or an army of Soviet Firestorm’s will destroy the world. But then again, the stakes are impossibly high in every episode, with the fate of civilization hinging on their every mission. It’s difficult to sustain that type of momentum for an entire season, and beyond. Hopefully the show’s writers will begin to layer in smaller, more personal stories to balance out their epic quests.It’s All Connected

After an intense cross promotional lead up to the show, Legends has cooled in highlighting its connection to Arrow and The Flash after the pilot. This week was stuffed with sister show references and Easter eggs, with more than just Giedon to remind you that they are all connected. The opening hallucination of Valentina as Cisco Ramon was a fun cold open – and Carlos Valdes’ Ramon is always a welcome addition. Sadly with Valentina now (presumably) dead we won’t get to explore whatever power or manipulation allowed her to control Stein’s mind without drugs, or get to see her try for a more convincing Cisco. Echos of Arrow were especially strong as the team negotiated with the Bravta, the Russian Mafia who were all sporting tattoos that match Oliver’s. The episode even managed to sneak in a wink to Miller’s other hit show Prison Break, as they determined how to, well, break into another prison.Of course, The Flash cameo and many references to Star City were all in service of the ending cliffhanger: after another attack by Chronos the team finds themselves in a dystopian future version of Star City. In this world, Palmer’s skyscraper has been renamed in favor of a certain hacker genius – with “Smoak” now emblazoned where Ray’s name used to be.The episode also brought up many questions about the nature of time travel itself, and the rules that govern it. It’s been repeatedly emphasized that the timeline is resistant to change, but this week’s episode brought devastating results cementing a new future almost immediately. So far Legends has done a good job of world-building, but as the team’s time-bending adventures get wider in scope, so too do the implications of their actions. Hopefully, the series’ writers will be able to establish a clear set of rules, and then abide by them as the fight against Savage intensifies.-This week proved that the Legends of Tomorrow works best when all of the pieces are on the board, working together against a common enemy. It managed to anchor the action in heart and emotion (even with a few narrative missteps), while advancing the plot. Next week should bring a host of Arrow characters into play as the team explores the future Star City, facing down a Green Arrow who is most definitely not Oliver Queen, and uncover what went wrong in the timeline.Legends of Tomorrow will return with ‘Star City 2046’ on February 25th, 2016 at 8pm on The CW.
