Marvel Might Be Bringing ‘Deathlok’ Back Into The MCU Fold

With Marvel’s comprehensive plans to rule the Superhero Cinematic Universe (Although with DC’s run of high quality films they might have something to say about that), they have started to delve deep into the Marvel immense stockpile of characters that my not be universally known by everyone. Whether it be the Eternals, Shang-Chi or even discussions of Nova, the Marvel brain-trust is trying to broaden their horizons and expand their audience by re-introducing or re-inventing Marvel’s past. With that in mind, Deadline in a recent piece comparing the similarities between Deathstroke, Deadshot, Bloodshot and Deathlok, stated that there is a

The Punisher Season 2 Delivers Best Out of Marvel Netflix

Before I get started, just know that I rank this season on the same playing field as Daredevil Season Three. And there will be some spoilers, so let’s get started. Having just finished my binge of season two, I can truly say that this is what we needed. What we deserved. While I considered season one of The Punisher my second favorite next to Daredevil Season Three, I can definitively say that season two of Frank Castle’s journey was better than season one.

The Season Two Blues: Netflix Marvel’s Predictable Trend

We were all shocked during the events of the second season of Daredevil, where Matt Murdock’s previously strong ties with Foggy Nelson began unraveling. Not only did their business go bottoms up, but their friendship deteriorated. On top of this, the re-introduction of Elektra back into Matt’s life put a major strain on his ties with Karen Page, to the point of completely breaking. How could friendships that were so strong in the first season be completely ripped apart just a few episodes later? Unfortunately, this is a trend we have now seen in the Netflix Marvel world.

What if Ben Barnes was James Bond?

With reports coming out that Idris Elba will not be the next James Bond, discussion begins again for who would be fit as the world’s best spy? Personally, I’d love to see Tom Hiddleston tackle the role. Considering that Hiddleston will no longer be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Loki, we need to find a home for this amazingly talented actor. While there are others, CBR.com asked the question, “why hasn’t anyone brought up Ben Barnes as a possibility for 007?” Barnes is certainly a smooth Brit. Playing swoon-worthy roles such as Dorian Grey, Logan Delos, and Billy Russo, you
