Watch Elektra Light Up The Night In Her Own Cinemagraph For DAREDEVIL: SEASON 2!
Roughly over three weeks remain for the second season of Marvel series, Daredevil and a slew of character posters and cinemagraphs have been rolling out ever since. The latter has just been updated with its roster complete with animation featuring actor Charlie Cox in the title role followed by, Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll, Jon Bernthal debuting as Punisher and newly added Elodie Yung kicking around the badies in a new look as Elektra.
Phil Abraham directs the new season which now forces our hero to continue questioning his purpose with the rise of a new vigilante and the return of an old flame in the midst. The show is building up to further the advancement of The Defenders in the next few years along with other shows, but what's more interesting is what could happen for a spin-off for Bernthal in his own Punisher series since it's not exactly official despite recent reports. Marvel knows we're all paying attention though - we're ready and waiting for it.
Check out the cool gems below and keep your eyes peeled.
Crowdfunding officially kicked off on Monday with a new Indiegogo campaign for The Martial Arts Kid 2: Payback. Action stars Don "The Dragon" Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock are back and co-producing, as well as rejoining a cast of returning and new faces led by title star, actor Jansen Panettiere, and once more with writer/director Michael Baumgarten who helmed the first film as well as last year's Paying Mr. McGetty. Plot details are unknown for the sequel following the first installment centered on an embattled teenager struggling to face the odds in a new neighborhood with help of his martial arts expert sibs, Uncle Glen and Auntie Cindy. Returning are Brandon Tyler Russell, Matthew Ziff and martial artist TJ Storm to reprise their roles with Chuck Zito emerging for the sequel next to actor Sasha Mitchell and with award-winning stunt coordinator James Lew back to direct the action.

We've long known since last summer that a television spin-off series set in the John Wick universe was in the making. Pan over now to this week's events over at the Television Critics Association where news is just making headway for the series, The Continental, with word that the show has landed at Starz with actor Keanu Reeves attached. Serving as showrunner will be Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, Man in the High Castle) who will also pen the script outlining the show's forte exploring the auspices of the titular assassins' luxury hotel chain as seen in 2014's John Wick and last year's John Wick: Chapter Two. Thunder Road's Basil Iwaynk is executive producing along with franchise scribe Derek Kolstad, who has been building up his workload ever since then in addition to his latest start on STXfilms's Nobody with 87Eleven. Chad Stahelski and David Leitch who helmed the 2014 film and shared seperate duties on its sequel will also executive produc…
An exasperating wait, no less, for folks like myself who live in the U.S.. Still, it's nice to know that a Blu-Ray/Digital HD release of the new tournament martial arts thriller, Boyka: Undisputed, is well on its way with an August release, while it's even nicer to know that the film's star, actor and martial artist Scott Adkins wants to do a fifth.
He says so at around the 11:40 mark in his latest interview now online following his recent appearance at MCM Expo in London this week to discuss the role and the film as a whole - And not for nothing either as he continues to pound away at fans who enjoy his movies, but insist on stealing them online which will otherwise kill any chance of the film happening before 2030 if we're lucky (my words, not his).
Adkins also shares several new images from his latest, Accident Man, and some gems on Michael Cuesta's American Assassin, working with Tony Jaa on the recently-wrapped ensemble action thriller, Triple Threat, and muc…
