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…

Dates for Phase 5 of the MCU may have been Leaked

After unveiling Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic Con last month, it's believed that plans for Phase 5 will be announced at D23. But have some of the release dates may have already been leaked?



Charles Murphy (@_CharlesMurphy) - someone who is known for revealing accurate info - has tweeted possible release dates for two upcoming movies. According to Murphy (which "could be subject to change"), Black Panther 2 will arrive in cinemas on 18th February 2022, and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on 6th May 2022. These dates are similar to the movies that preceded them, Black Panther was released on 13th February 2018 and GOTG Vol. 2 on 27th April 2017. Both movies had a lot of success in their respective slots, so it makes sense that Marvel would attempt to continue that success with future instalments. It has also been confirmed by James Gunn, that he won't be working on GOTG Vol. 3 until after he's completed production of "The …

JOJO RABBIT | Moustache Teaser Reaction

If Top Gun: Maverick is the most exciting teaser of late, then the teaser trailer for "Jojo Rabbit" has got to be the most bizarre. If you haven't seen it, check it out below:


Taika Waititi's latest movie is based on the book "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens, and tells the story of Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis). A member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo's world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. And the only person he has to turn to as he attempts to deal with all that he's going through, is his imaginary friend...Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi).

Now I know what you're thinking; "this sounds bat shit insane!" And to be fair, you're probably right. But Jojo Rabbit looks - in true Waititi fashion - absolutely hysterical. It is definitely something you have to see to believe, and that's just the trailer. One thing fans of …
