Premiering November 20th, Jessica Jones, Marvel's next Netflix series will continue to introduce the 'street-level' heroes of Hell's Kitchen, New York. This hero isn't as recognizable as her counterparts. As part of MAX (Marvel's first unrated comic line) Alias featured Jessica Jones' downward spiral after a serious trauma forced her to hang up her cape and become a private investigator, but the series only ran for 28 issues between 2001 and 2004.

Now, in order to help audiences catch up with the lesser known hero, Marvel got the original creators (Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos) to create a free 12-page issue connecting Jessica Jones to the over-arching MCU.

There's even a special Daredevil cameo. You can get a Digital Copy at Comixology. You should do it now! It's free!

Netflix changes the sexist, culturally insensitive Pocahontas description.

Dr. Adrienne K., owner of the Native Appropriations blog, just wanted to watch a movie, and it led to Netflix changing the description for Pocahontas.

While scrolling through Netflix, she came upon the 1995 Disney film and immediately found the description sexist and disrespectful of native peoples.

Here's the original description:



Dr. Adrienne took to Twitter for a short appeal:





And then wrote a longer one on her blog.

...[T]hese movies all have well developed romance plot lines, but their (white, male) protagonists get to save things, fight people, have adventures, and be 'lord of the jungle'–they are not defined by their romantic relationships in the film.


Br> After the post and the sizable Internet agreement, Netflix actually responded directly to Dr. Adrienne and admitted fault.



The new description tells a decidedly different story.

It's been a terribly long wait, but as of tomorrow, July 16, we will find ourselves finally back in Camp Firewood.

Our kind overlords at Netfilx will open up the camp gates to Wet Hot American Summer and we're sure to binge all of it as soon as we can. 

In the meantime, we can just watch this video on repeat.

You may remember a couple weeks ago when Jon Bernthal was officially announced as The Punisher for Netflix's Daredevil, season 2. Well now another classic Marvel hero, Elektra appears to be joining the crew in Hell's Kitchen as well.

Played by Élodie Yung, Elektra is a trained assassin and former college girlfriend of Matt Murdock. She's also a long running romantic interest for the blind vigilante.

Over the weekend, Eleanora Poe uploaded this trailer, which is clearly meant to be a teaser for Netflix's upcoming Series of Unfortunate Events show. 

It ran through the Internet due to it's spot-on atmosphere and intriguing hints at that titular series of events seen as unfortunate.

However, Entertainment Weekly found out from Netflix that the trailer was not made by the streaming giant.

So we're left with conflicting emotions here. On the one hand, this is a strikingly good fan-made trailer that really encapsulates the feel that made Lemony Snicket's books (and the movie) work so well.

On the other hand, since Netflix didn't make it, there's not telling how they will envision the show as of yet.

Let's hope Netflix doesn't squish our hopes for the show much like this poor, hopeless arachnid:

With only a few weeks left before the July 17 release of Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer show, the big red Internet streaming company knows that our thirst is real.

So, in order to kindly wet our parched palettes, Netflix trotted out another peek at the gang all back together for the Camp Firewood prequel. 

And abosultely none of them look as if they've aged a day.
