‘Daredevil’ Says Goodbye to Matt Murdock in New Season 3 Teaser Trailer
It looks like Matt Murdock is going to the dark side — and he doesn’t want you to call him Matt Murdock anymore. The first teaser trailer for Daredevil Season 3 puts Marvel’s first Netflix vigilante in a confessional, where he reveals that he no longer believes in the concept of justice that once inspired him to don the mask and fight crime. Matt Murdock remains missing, but Daredevil is certainly back.
‘Daredevil’ Is Still Missing in First Season 3 Teaser
Details on the upcoming season of Daredevil are still relatively scarce, aside from confirmation of a few returning faces. Based on the events at the end of The Defenders (which also had quite an impact on Danny Rand’s arc in Iron Fist Season 2), Matt Murdock is presumed dead, and judging by Daredevil’s first Season 3 teaser, The Man Without Fear will still be MIA when his Netflix series returns sometime later this year.
Burt Reynolds, Hollywood Icon, Has Died at 82
Burt Reynolds, the iconic mustachioed star of classics ranging from Smokey and the Bandit to Boogie Nights, has passed away at the age of 82. The actor died early Thursday at Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, as confirmed by his manager. No cause of death has been given at this time.
Here’s Your First Official Look at ‘Captain Marvel’!
Last night, Brie Larson sent out a not-so-cryptic tweet teasing the first official look at Captain Marvel: “Hey EW, I’m bored. Wanna break the internet tomorrow?” While the internet is, unfortunately, still operational (as of this writing, anyway), Entertainment Weekly has indeed unveiled the very first official photo of Larson as the Marvel Comics superhero, set to make her debut in her very own solo movie next year.
James Gunn’s Firing Could Also Affect ‘Avengers 4’
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Marvel placed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on hold in the wake of James Gunn’s firing. Despite the best efforts of his cast and a meeting with Disney head Alan Horn, Gunn won’t be returning to the MCU for the foreseeable future, leaving Vol. 3 — and its affect on the overall MCU narrative — in purgatory. According to Dave Bautista, the Guardians sequel isn’t the only movie impacted by Gunn’s firing.
Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Now Includes Bruce Lee

Sony’s Post-‘Venom’ Spider-Man Spinoffs Include ‘Silk’ and ‘Black Cat’ Solo Films, More Diversity
Although ‘Silver & Black’ is off the table, the studio is plotting numerous standalone films set in and around the Spider-Man universe, including ‘Nightwatch’ and ‘Jackpot,’ along with previously announced films like ‘Kraven the Hunter’ and ‘Morbius.’
‘Supergirl’ Movie Reportedly in the Works as Warner Bros. Hires Screenwriter
A little bit of a good news / eyebrow-raising news situation here, as Warner Bros. and DC Films are reportedly plotting a Supergirl movie (yay!) from the writer of The Cloverfield Paradox (hmm…). It’s still early days, however, and given the number of writers typically involved in your average blockbuster, it seems likely that this iteration of the script will be one of many.
Spider-Man Spinoff ‘Kraven the Hunter’ Lands ‘Equalizer’ Writer
Although Silver & Black is on hold (for now), Sony has plenty of other plans for the world of Spider-Man, including this fall’s Venom (starring Tom Hardy and his voice) and Morbius (starring Jared Leto as a super-powered vampire), as well as the animated Into the Spider-Verse. Clearly, the studio is keeping their live-action offerings centered on villains and anti-heroes, and they’ve hired a screenwriter to tackle the next addition: Kraven the Hunter.
James Wan Confirms ‘Annabelle 3,’ Compares It to ‘Night at the Museum’ With the Warrens
New Line took over San Diego Comic-Con last night for ScareDiego, teasing a few of the studio’s upcoming horror films — including, obviously, IT: Chapter Two. But the highly-anticipated sequel to Andy Muschietti’s horror hit wasn’t the only film on the docket: James Wan was on hand to confirm a third installment of Annabelle, based on the creepy doll from the Conjuring franchise.
‘The Walking Dead’ Rebuilds in First Season 9 Teaser From Comic-Con
Before The Walking Dead shambles into Comic-Con tomorrow with a full trailer, AMC has debuted the first official teaser for Season 9. The brief sneak peek offers a look at the various communities attempting to rebuild in the wake of Negan’s terror, while Danai Gurira’s Michonne talks to Lauren Cohan’s Maggie about setting new rules for how they should treat one another. Should go over well!
If You Go See ‘Unfriended: Dark Web,’ There’s No Telling Which Ending You’ll Get
Of all the film genres, horror is typically the most likely to have alternate endings — specifically either a bummer ending or a happy-ish one. While test screenings can have an impact on which ending ultimately makes it to theaters, home releases often include both. Hostel, The Butterfly Effect and The Descent are just a few of those. (It’s interesting to note that, when given the choice, audiences usually prefer the darker ending of the two.) But in the case of Unfriended: Dark Web, the film is being released with both endings. The kicker? You have no way of knowing which ending you’ll get when you see it in theaters.
