Netflix’s Daredevil becomes the second-most pirated show behind Game of Thrones. Considering that the total pirated number of GoT includes all four-plus seasons, that’s pretty nuts. If you’ve seen the way Matt Murdock handles criminals, you’d think twice about pirating this show. Source: Variety
Looks like John Ridley (12 Years A Slave, Red Tails) has been awarded the job of developing Marvel’s next TV series.

This could be the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off or something completely different. Source: EW

fangasm on the new trailer of the Fantastic Four
Definitely! My expectations went way up after seeing it in action. It’s hard to drown out all the weird things being said about it and just enjoy it for what it is sometimes.
