Did you hear that? I think the Hulk just smashed yet another one of Black Widow’s favourite vases. Hahahaha, I’m kidding, xD
Marvel and DC Comics have been blasting everyone off their seats in the cinema lately, with the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and the trailers for Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad! I just caught Ant-Man last week, and I have to say I am actually pretty impressed. Ant-Man was the first ever Marvel movie that I watched without criticising the graphics or bad edits (sorry! occupational hazard hahaha!) The content was so interesting, I forgot to look out for bad graphics, hahaha. Okay, I don’t deny I cringed quite a bit because the ants gave me goosebumps (not a fan of creepy crawlies…
After find out about the ensemble cast that includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne (just to name a few), I can’t wait for Suicide Squad to open in theatres next year!
Sorry I’m late to the table on these massive announcements! I’ve been sooooooo busy, I didn’t even manage to catch Avengers: Age of Ultron. :( On a side note, at least I have Netflix to quench my thirst for superhero related programmes.
The Marvel and DC Universes have grown so much over the years. From comics and cartoons, to movies, and now full-fledge TV dramas.. I have loads of friends who going to great lengths to catch every single Marvel release (and staying to catch the customary mid- and post-credits scenes. These things are becoming quite classic! And how can we forget Stan Lee’s cameo in every single Marvel film!
Hehehe, do I need to mention how much I loveeeeee my Freedom VPN again? XD
And with regard to Marvel and DC, here are the juicy bits!
Marvel’s Daredevil is an exclusive American web television series that was specially created for Netflix (just like House Of Cards).
The story revolves around Matt Murdock, who suffered a terrible accident as a kid, which left him blind but with super powers! By day, Matt Murdock is a top-notch lawyer who fights for justice and peace. By night, he puts on his Daredevil suit, and transforms into a criminal crusher, taking the law into his own hands. The best part, the show is connected to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 2 (I love how Marvel brings together all these seemingly separate storylines) and is filled with loads of Marvel Easter eggs!
The 13 episodes web TV series first premièred on 10 April 2015. And due to the overwhelming response, Marvel and Netflix have renewed the series for a second season in 2016! For those who didn’t know that Netflix produces its own exclusive shows too, now you know hahaha!
With Daredevil currently considered Netflix’s ultimate dark hero, other characters will soon appear to give him a run of his money – Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders! Marvel fans, I’m sure you know what I am talking about!
Hopping over to Team DC, Hulu also has The Flash, Arrow and Gotham (life before Batman)!
If you do not wish to subscribe for Netflix or Hulu, these 3 programmes can also be streamed for free on Youku (another channel/app that’s available if you have Freedom VPN)!
I mentioned Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D earlier on… and it’s gonna be back with a third season!! Marvel just recently released a pair of behind-the-scenes photos, captured during production. With that, they also released the première date for the third instalment!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will be back on our TV screens on 29 September 2015! In the meantime, click here to catch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 2.
Last but not least, let’s welcome……. SUPERGIRL!!

The Danvers teach her to be careful with her powers, until she has to reveal them during an unexpected disaster, setting her on her journey of heroism.
We have Superman, and now we have Supergirl, Superman’s biological cousin. The series will debut on CBS on 26 October.
