The Punisher is back on the job. Back in the fight.
The Marvel Netflix shows are quickly coming to an end. After the cancellation of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil, all that remains are The Punisher and Jessica Jones. And with Disney+ launching later this year, the likelihood of Netflix’s remaining two Marvel shows being cancelled are very high. And while we know the inevitable is coming, we can still look forward to one more season from the two.
The latest trailer for The Punisher season 2 has been released. In it, we get more of an idea of what Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) will be doing now that he has been paroled and what a disfigured Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) will be doing to get his revenge. Check out the trailer below.
Before the end of last year, Netflix canceled Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil. It was a surprising move but one that was not entirely unexpected given that Disney would be launching their own streaming service, Disney+, at the end of 2019. So all that remains of the Marvel Netflix deal are Jessica Jones and The Punisher. The latter was a new addition to the original deal that only featured four heroes of New York City. Though he made an intro in season 2 of Daredevil, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) made quite an impression in his own series.
Now, he’s back for season 2. And this time, he’s going up against a familiar face. Ben Barnes also returns to play the series’ lead nemesis Billy Russo, whose disfigurement at the end of season 1, has transformed him into becoming Jigsaw. Netflix has released a new trailer for the season, which also announces a release date. Check out the trailer below.
First, it was Iron Fist. Then it was Luke Cage. Now, in a completely unsurprising move, Netflix has cancelled Daredevil. It was one of the streaming service’s flagship shows and the first to be released as a part of the Marvel and Netflix deal that was signed back in 2013. But the move comes after Disney ended their relationship with Netflix and announced they would be launching their own streaming service, Disney+. More on the report here below.
Remember Hell Fest, the all too scary take on amusement park Halloween mazes? Well, there seems to be a recurring theme here. Now they are targeting the escape room. For those who are not familiar with the concept, escape rooms are when a group of people get together to solve puzzles and answer riddles in order to escape their current imprisonment. Of course, this is the perfect conceit for a horror film.
And this gives us Escape Room, a film that takes the concept of the friendly game and turns it into a horrific nightmare. Sony Pictures has released an official trailer for the film, and you can check it out below along with a poster.
The NYCC 2018 panel for Daredevil season 3 – held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in NYC – featured cast and crew alike. There to discuss the ongoing cinematic journey of Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, and Wilson Fisk were show stars Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio, Joanne Whalley, Wilson Bethel, and Jay Ali, as well as series showrunner Erik Oleson and Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb. But before getting into the meat of the discussion, Loeb introduced the cast and then announced that Cox was married this past weekend – and his wife was sitting right behind me!
Check out the highlights from the Daredevil panel, along with new footage from Season 3 and details on its new villain, Bullseye, here below.
