Daredevil Returns

In a year where we get to see Batman v Superman and Captain America v Iron Man, Netflix is also giving us Daredevil v The Punisher.




This week saw the release of the first proper trailer for Daredevil Season 2 which will be available on Netflix from 18th March. Daredevil it seems is still fighting to save Hell's Kitchen and its residents from the criminals that emerged in the wake of the Battle of New York. Only there's a new player in the game, Frank Castle A.K.A. The Punisher (Jon Bernthal). The problem is they don't exactly see eye to eye, The Punisher sees Daredevil as weak because he doesn't kill the criminals he hunts.


Frank Castle, a military veteran, is the victim of a brutal crime; his family has been murdered and he wants to 'punish' those responsible. It appears in the trailer that Castle is leaving a trail of destruction across the city in an effort to accomplish his mission. This obviously draws the attention of well...everybody. From law enforcement and the media, to Daredevil and the criminals. Whereas Daredevil is trying to help his community, Castle is angry and is inflicting that anger and his military skills on the criminal
underworld, obviously his tactics bring him into conflict with Daredevil. My question is this; is he looking to punish any and all criminals or is he just interested in finding those responsible for killing his family. Punisher is being portrayed by Jon Bernthal who is known for Fury, The Walking Dead and Mob City. With roles like this under his belt he is more than capable of showing the pain and anger that Punisher feels.


Season 2 will see the return of Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) and Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) as well
as the first appearance of Elektra Natchios (pictured right). All that we know of Elektra is that she's Murdoch's college flame. It's rumoured that Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) may make an appearance but this is unconfirmed, Jones like Daredevil exists in the extended Marvel universe, Claire Temple was the first character to appear in both shows.


All 13 episodes of Daredevil Season 2 will be made available on Netflix on Friday 18th March.

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!


Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below:

Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible.


From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. Gr…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 6 | Home Before Dark

We're back on Apple TV+ this week, checking out one of Apple's new TV shows: Home Before Dark.

Ever since her Dad took her into the newsroom where he works, nine year old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) has been fascinated with journalism. So fascinated in fact, that she started her own newspaper - The Magic Hour Chronicle. But when Matthew Lisko (Jim Sturgess) - Hilde's Father - loses his job, the family is forced to move to Matthew's home town of Erie Harbor, a place he hasn't been back to in many years. There, a chance encounter leads Hilde to look into a thirty year cold case, one that involved the murder of a teenage boy and tore the town apart. Could that be the reason why Hilde's Dad left and never came back?




I will admit that when my fiancé and I were checking out the new content available on Apple TV+ (we had just finished watching the availab…
