Is This Our First Look at Charlie Cox as “Daredevil” in His Red Costume?
A promotional photo of what appears to be Charlie Cox in the red “Daredevil” costume recently hit the net. We still are not sure if this is official or fan-made but to me this looks pretty damn good. I’m hoping this is real but it’s not official until we get confirmation from Netflix, Marvel or Disney.
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero ‘Daredevil’ in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Marvel’s “Daredevil” premiers this Friday, April 10th on Netflix!
*UPDATE: It’s real! Marvel just released this new motion trailer with the red suit!
The “Fantastic Four”…. No More
Marvel recently revealed the cover for issue #645 of the Fantastic Four and what makes this significant is that this is the final issue of the Fantastic Four. This is clearly a shout out to Fox that they are cancelling the series because of Fox’s upcoming reboot movie of the “Fantastic Four”. Just compare the comic book cover with the official movie poster for Fox’s “Fantastic Four” and you can see that Marvel is making a statement as to who is responsible for the death of the Fantastic Four. Although Marvel has never officially said this, it is obvious that they don’t want to provide any free marketing for Fox’s Fantastic Four movie. I am sure the Fantastic Four will be back in the comics after the release of the movie on home video.
This is the end of the Fantastic Four – 4ever! Be there when the most controversial Fantastic Four story concludes in the extra-sized FANTASTIC FOUR #645!
