Warning, Mild Spoilers from Daredevil Season 1 Ahead

After successfully managing to wash the taste of Ben Affleck’s 2003 bomb out of the collective mouths of Daredevil fans everywhere, it seems that the star of Daredevil on Netflix wants to incorporate even more comic book heroes and villains in Season 2.

Speaking with IGN, Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, expressed his desire to bring in more characters from the Marvel Universe for the second season of the Netflix hit. “I love Stilt-Man. I love Owlsley. I think in our show we’re more likely to see the likes of Bullseye, The Punisher and Elektra. I don’t know if any of those characters will appear, and also I don’t know what’s going to happen with Wilson Fisk. He’s certainly not out of the picture. Hopefully he’ll come back.”

Eagle-eyed fans of the show and comics will have noticed a number of Easter Eggs that were strewn about the thirteen episode first season. From the over-arcing plot about rebuilding New York after the events of The Avengers, to newspaper clippings mentioning events from The Incredible Hulk, to costume designs in Melvin Potter’s workshop.

Bullseye is one of Daredevil’s greatest foes, on par with Wilson Fisk. He is a lethal assassin who can make any object into a deadly projectile. He may have even been hinted at in Season 1, as a sniper who shot a cop. The Punisher, a.k.a. Frank Castle, is an antihero with military training who punishes those he deems as criminals in any way he sees fit. Elektra, a.k.a Elektra Natchios, is female ninja assassin and on-again, off-again love interest of Daredevil. Their relationship was hinted at in Season 1 in a flashback.

It’ll be very interesting to see how closely the show will get to the comics and what the showrunners will be able to work with, now that Daredevil is officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Daredevil is slated to return to Netflix in 2016.

Especially during the summer, kids are probably enjoying a little more screen time than you might like. There's no way around it, especially if they're home from school and you still have work and chores to do. But you can make sure the screen time they spend is at least valuable time, or that the videos they're watching don't contain inappropriate content. Accomplish this by directing them to some great videos that they'll enjoy, but that will also actually teach them a thing or two.

From story time for toddlers and younger kids, to exploratory videos that teach older kids about insects, space, and even personal hygiene, and some teen and tween-friendly videos you don't have to worry about them watching, we have curated this list of the best YouTube videos for kids.

ABC Song Learn English Alphabet for Children with Ryan! | ABC phonics + More Kids Nursery Rhymes
Repetition is the best thing for kids to help them learn, and Ryan from Ryan’s World has become a cultural phenomenon for a new generation of kids. The popular YouTuber, first known for his unboxing videos, has a channel filled with tons of videos of all kinds that his 37 million and counting followers watch. This one is a simple video for toddlers just learning to speak, understand the alphabet, and identify objects. Ryan takes them on a journey that includes oversized alphabet letters, dancing, catchy songs, and even a fun game of hide and seek.
At 23 minutes long, it’s like a TV show episode, but the first nine minutes are perfect for one sitting and take kids from A through Z. The video moves quickly at times, however, so expect the kids to want to watch it again and again. Each time, however, they’ll pick up a new letter, associated word, and how to pronounce it. They might even start repeating some of the elements of the song, like “P is for pizza, puh-puh-pizza” and “N is for naptime, na-na-naptime.” (One view and the tune is already stuck in my head on repeat!)
Turn the video into a game you can play along with, placing the same objects in the room for your toddler to point out along with Ryan. Following the alphabet time are family performances of various upbeat tunes, including the popular Pinkfong song Baby Shark.

Everything you need to know about Severance season 2
severance season 2 everything you need to know photo

In February 2022, audiences discovered the mysterious world at Lumon Industries with the premiere of the Apple TV+ sci-fi drama Severance. At Lumon, several employees undergo "severance," a medical procedure that separates your work memories from your life on the outside ("outies"). Severed employees ("innies") cannot remember anything about themselves once they enter work. The severed employees essentially live two different lives.

Season 1 follows Mark Scout (Adam Scott) and his co-workers, who all underwent severance. When a new employee named Helly (Britt Lower) joins the company, Mark begins to question Lumon's motives, which may or may not be sinister. Severance season 1 premiered to universal acclaim from critics and earned 14 Emmy nominations. Season 2 is on the way. Here's everything we know so far.
Is there a release date for Severance season 2?

Venom 3: release date, plot, cast, trailer, and more
Tom Hardy in the Venom suit as he looks confused.

In 2018, Sony Pictures made a bold attempt to keep making Marvel movies without the direct involvement of Marvel Studios. The very first movie in Sony's Spider-Man Universe was Venom, a film based on one of Spidey's greatest villains, who Topher Grace had previously portrayed in 2007's Spider-Man 3. Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) headlined Venom as reporter Eddie Brock and the titular alien symbiote who bonded with him. And unlike Sony's later film, Morbius, Venom was a big hit, earning $856.1 million worldwide.

Hardy reprised his dual roles in 2021's Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which also outperformed expectations at the post-pandemic box office. Later this year, Hardy will once again return as Eddie and Venom in Venom 3: The Last Dance, a film described as the closing chapter in this trilogy. Regardless, Venom 3 may not be the end of the road for Hardy's superhero career, especially after his MCU cameo in 2021. To bring everyone up to speed about the upcoming superhero sequel, we're sharing everything we know about Venom 3.
Who is directing Venom 3?
