‘The Punisher’ Season 2 Is Exactly What Fans Want, Marvel CCO Promises

The Punisher season 1 is still my favorite show in the Marel Netflix universe. After introducing Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle in the second season of Daredevil, I knew that Castle’s solo series would be unlike any of the other Defenders universe shows. Gritty, raw, and explosive, The Punisher showcased the many different sides of its title character rather than just the violent soldier that we primarily saw in Daredevil. Of course, our favorite anti-hero was everything we wanted him to be, but seeing him as a friend, husband, and father was not something we were able to see before his own

‘Sin City’ Rights Revert Back To Frank Miller

After a legal settlement between Lantern Capital Partner and Frank Miller, Miller has regained the television rights to develop his 1991 Noir comic Sin City. Miller also regained  the film rights to the first 2005 Sin City film adaptation that starred Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, and Mickey Rourke. The rights were originally tied up in the sale of Harvey Weinstein’s, The Weinstein Company, to Lantern Capital as part of his bankruptcy. Miller had objected to his work being part of the settlement so the parties worked out an arrangement where the TV rights and the first film would not be included and be transferred

Looking to the Future – Films and Television of 2019

It’s all over. The votes are in and looking ahead, 2019 might be the biggest year ever for geeks like myself. Some of the biggest (and in “Game of Thrones” case, most awarded) TV shows of all time are coming to a close next year. 2019 will mark the end of “Game of Thrones”, “Gotham”, and possibly “Marvel’s Agents of Shield.” It will also see the end of the “Infinity War”saga with release of “Avenger’s 4” (or whatever they end up calling it). Perhaps the title will be: “Avengers 4: The quest to bring back all of the heroes we

‘Altered Carbon’ Renewed For a Second Season; Casts Antony Mackie as Lead

New season. New sleeve. Altered Carbon’s official twitter sent out today, announcing the renewal for a second season. The sci-fi show based on the book by Richard Morgan will return to Netflix with eight episodes, instead of the ten it had in season one. Premiering on February 2, 2018, this wildly imaginative show gauged mixed reactions, though; if you ask me, is definitely one of my favorites on the online streaming service. Primarily played by Joel Kinnaman, the show centers around Takeshi Kovacs as he awakes 250 years after originally being sentenced to a lifetime of being essentially decommissioned. We

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ To Debut On Netflix After Rights Deal

CainanCainan is a walking talking Superman fanboy since age 2! He has been a lover of movies since he could understand them which was probably around the age of 5. Geeking out to He-Man, G.I. Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and just about every other Saturday morning cartoon. An old school action flick kind of guy, he grew up with Arnold, Stallone, and Willis keeping him company. He is also big into technology and video games. From the classic NES to the PS4, he has played them all. He runs the Geek Vibes Nation Twitter account and is also the

‘Supergirl’ Casts TV’s First Ever Transgender Superhero

While movies and television shows have been trying to rectify the lack of diversity, the representation of the transgender community needs a serious boost. That’s why the news that Supergirl has casted activist and actress Nicole Maines as tv’s first transgender superhero is such a great first step in the right direction. Having previously worked on Royal Pains, the news of Maines’ casting was revealed at the Supergirl SDCC panel on Sunday. The actress’s character will be Nia Nal, a new addition at CatCo, who is a fierce and driven reporter. Nia will be a voice for the discriminated against

David Mazouz Gives Insight to Bruce Wayne For ‘Gotham’ Season 5

Last season Gotham ended on sort of a cliffhanger. We saw the fruits of Jeremiah Valeska’s plan come to fruition fruit in A Dark Knight: No Man’s Land and it plunged Gotham into chaos. After Selina (Camren Bicondova) was critically wounded, Bruce was left with a tough choice. Go with his friend to the hospital or stay behind to save Gotham? Bruce chose the latter and decided to work along side Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) in bringing order back to the Gotham. David Mazouz recently sat down with ComicBook.com during San Diego Comic Con to give insight into where Bruce will be when

Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Begins Production on Season 6

With production beginning on the 6th and probably final season of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,” what have we learned so far? We know that the title of the first episode of the 13 episode season is “Missing Pieces” and it is directed by the “Son of Coul” himself, Clark Gregg. This isn’t Gregg’s first time in the directors chair as he directed Season 5 episode “Fun and Games.” We also know that Jeff Ward has been signed as a series regular in his role as Fitzsimmons Grandson Zeke. More lemons for Quake it would seem. The fact that he hasn’t
