One of the things I liked best about the first season of Marvel's Daredevil is that it allowed anyone with a Netflix account to audit the class, whether or not they had done the reading. But the Marvel universe is relentless and ever-expanding, and as Daredevil returns to Netflix on Friday with 13 new episodes, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) isn't quite as much at the center of even his corner of that universe as he was. He's still a blind lawyer by day, kick-ass vigilante by night, but his Daredevil persona's challenged by another, more brutal version known as Punisher (Jon Bernthal, The Walking Dead )

Swift says mom is ill Taylor Swift on Thursday shared grave family news: Her mother Andrea Swift has been diagnosed with cancer. Taylor did not specify the type of cancer or prognosis.

Marvel's Daredevil , Netflix's latest offering, is a well-scripted, beautifully acted superhero saga that is surprisingly impressive. The 13-episode first season will be posted Friday by the streaming-video provider. For someone who's never cared much for the whole comic book and superhero shtick , it is shockingly, alarmingly impressive. Developed by World War Z writer Drew Goddard, Daredevil is the first of four planned series coproduced by Marvel TV and Netflix.

LITTLE COLORADO RIVER GORGE, Ariz. - Florida aerialist Nik Wallenda completed a tightrope walk that took him a quarter mile over the Little Colorado River Gorge in northeastern Arizona on Sunday. Wallenda performed the stunt on a two-inch-thick steel cable, 1,500 feet above the river on the Navajo Nation near the Grand Canyon. He took just more than 22 minutes, pausing and crouching twice as winds whipped around him so that he could get "the rhythm out of the rope. " "Thank you Lord.

At the time, it seemed like a great idea, a nocturnal outing on a spring evening for a dozen or so Temple University friends. "Let's go to the Divine Lorraine," Brian Jerome, then a 19-year-old art student, suggested to all those assembled on the benches outside Peabody Hall. It was before midnight on April 6, 2010. Brian had been inside the abandoned hotel on North Broad Street many times. He had felt the lure of the graffiti-draped Divine Lorraine from the moment he arrived on campus as a freshman the year before.

PAMPLONA, Spain - One elderly thrill-seeker was gored in a leg and five others slightly injured as thousands of adrenaline-fueled runners raced ahead of six fighting bulls in the streets of the northern Spanish city of Pamplona in the first running of the bulls of this year's San Fermin festival, officials said Saturday. Runners, in traditional white clothing and red kerchiefs around their necks, tripped over each other or fell in the mad daredevil annual rush along early morning dew-moistened slippery streets to the city's bull ring.

In an industry known for big things - big tents, big animals, big crowds - it might be hard to outdo a show that explores the fiercest creature of mythology in the luckiest year of the Chinese zodiac. The sister-sister partnership behind a new Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey production is setting the tent pole high. "Dragons," the circus tour running through Monday at the Wells Fargo Center, may be the most thematic, modern, and inclusive one yet. In coordination with the Chinese Year of the Dragon, the show - conceived by Alana and Nicole Feld - targets a tech-savvy generation of children by blending contemporary with traditional elements, high-tech with human-powered spectacles, and fantasy with reality.
