AVENGERS: HAL­LOWEEN SPE­CIAL #1

MATT Mur­doch is used to be­ing the devil of Hell’s Kitchen, but he’s about to dis­cover some demons of his own.

Some­one plays a nasty trick on Daredevil as he un­der­goes a risky pro­ce­dure to re­store his sight.

Now his tear ducts are filled with a pow­er­ful hal­lu­cino­gen, and Matt is see­ing his loved ones mur­dered in front of him time and time again.

With bonus sto­ries fea­tur­ing Pu­n­isher, and the X-Men, the Hal­loween Spe­cial is penned by a host of writ­ers in­clud­ing Gerry Dug­gan, Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska, and Rob­bie Thomp­son.

Avengers: Hal­loween Spe­cial #1 is out now priced £4.25.

HIGH JINKS

WORK on the new Twi­light Zone re­boot con­tin­ues apace, with the an­nounce­ment that Adam Scott, right, will star in the re­make of pos­si­bly the orig­i­nal’s most fa­mous episode Night­mare at 30,000 Feet.

Scott has been cast in the role fa­mously played by Wil­liam Shat­ner in 1963, and by John Lith­gow in 1983’s The Twi­light Zone: The Movie.

The new se­ries is ex­pected to de­but next year.

GUARDIANS GROUNDED

IT’S not good news for Guardians of the Gal­axy fans, as the third film looks to have been shelved in­def­i­nitely.

Since James Gunn’s fir­ing by Dis­ney, the project has been stop-start­ing for months.

At a Black Pan­ther event in LA this week, jour­nal­ist Erick We­ber asked Marvel boss Kevin Feige just what was go­ing on.

Tweet­ing Feige’s an­swers, he con­firmed that Guardians 3 is back “on hold” again.

That’s very bad news if there’s any hope of the film hit­ting its 2021 re­lease date – and with no di­rec­tor on board, that’s look­ing less and less likely.

On hold: Guardians of the Gal­axy three
