Ellis also confirmed that the show is set deviate slightly from its video game source material, with many surprises in store for fans.

Telltale Games and Netflix have announced a new partnership that will see the narrative game studio creating a game based on the streaming service’s wildly popular supernatural series, Stranger Things. Telltale typically releases episodic titles with new characters, often expanding lore and mythos for series, so possibly expect more of the same here.

It looks like most of the Marvel’s Defenders will be getting a new season this year, as Jeph Loeb has confirmed that we will see Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 later this year, with Daredevil Season 3 hitting in 2019.

The cast for the series will also include the return of Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Sacha Dhawan as Danny’s childhood friend Davos.

Not in the plans right now, but you never know….We loved Defenders and so did our fans. We’ll see about doing it again — as you can guess it messes with the schedules on other shows – so do you want more Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones or another Defenders?

Netflix has revealed the first full trailer for their upcoming Lost in Space series, and it looks… pretty fantastic. It’s drastically different from any other interpretation, either the 1960’s TV series, or the late 90’s film. The robot this time isn’t actually a robot, but an artificial life-form that very much resembles the Geth from Mass Effect. In fact, given this production design, I wouldn’t be surprised if the show was linked to Mass Effect in some way.
It definitely looks interesting with plenty of action, beautiful landscapes, and an interesting seeming story. Lost in Space, starring Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Ignacia Serricchio and more, debuts on Netflix April 13th.

The trailer also gives mention of a sidekick, so maybe we’ll be seeing Hellcat this season, as well, which would be great. There are still plenty of surprises as these trailers usually only give away scenes from the first few episodes, so there’s plenty of mystery left to uncover.
Netflix has revealed the first, long-awaited trailer for Duncan Jones’ cyberpunk film, MUTE. Jones, director Moon, and Warcraft, wrote Mute along with Michael Robert Johnson, and has pitched the film as a passion project for quite some time. The film follows a mute bartender (Alexander Skarsgård) forced to go into the seedy underbelly of a future Berlin to find his girlfriend. Along the way he’ll team up with Cactus Bill (Paul Rudd) and Duck (Justin Theroux), a pair of Army vets with their own agenda.
Not only does the film look beautiful, with obvious inspiration from Blade Runner, John Wick, and more, but it also apparently is linked to Moon, one of the best sci-fi films in decades, that now creates a shared universe for Jones’ films.
