Rosario Dawson will not appear in The Punisher

Here’s some disappointing news Rosario Dawson will not appear in The Punisher, when it comes to Netflix later this year. 

In a recent interview, Rosario Dawson told Collider that her character, Claire Temple, will not be appearing in the series due to scheduling issues: 

At the end of the day, it’s really hard to get all of those casts together. For The Defenders, it was difficult to get everybody together. People are busy! There are so many times where I really want it to happen. I really wanted to do a cameo on The Punisher, but it doesn’t always work that way.

Netflix confirm Punisher series 

One batch. Two batch. A penny. A dime. This will come as no surprise to anyone who watched series 2 of Daredevil because, if you did. You saw this coming. Netflix announced today that they’re officially moving forward with a spin-off series for The Punisher.
Jon Bernthal will be reprising his role Frank Castle.

As I’m sure you’re aware, Bernthal was breath taking as The Punisher and they couldn’t have cast a better actor. He brought gravitas, weight, conviction and, emotion.
The Punisher is the sixth Marvel series ordered by Netflix. 

We have Luke Cage to look forward to later this year, with Iron Fist and The Defenders coming next year. Which will be ensemble miniseries, that includes Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist and, Luke Cage. It’s currently unknown if The Punisher will be included in that line-up. 

The Punisher will be run by writer and executive producer, Steve Lightfoot. 

Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb said:

“We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon’s stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil.’ Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring ‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ to Netflix.”

Netflix Vice President of Original Content, Cindy Holland added:

“Jon hooked our global audience with his performance as Frank Castle from the moment he stepped on screen in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil,’ and we are looking forward to seeing more of him in this role under the vision of Steve Lightfoot.”

Showrunner, Steve Lightfoot said:

“For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world. After watching Jon’s performance in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.”


The Marvel/Netflix partnership has proven to be a hit with fans and critics. I can’t wait to see what they give us with The Punisher. I’ve enjoyed all three of The Punisher movies, but I’ve always felt a character as complex as Frank Castle deserved a TV series.

Trailer-Daredevil series 2

 “You know you’re one bad day away from being me.”
Today, Netflix released the first full trailer for series two of Daredevil, and it’s pretty spectacular. 
We’ve finally been given a proper look at Frank Castle/The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and he looks fantastic. 

Here’s the synopsis:

Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.
Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.

The series sees Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Rosario Dawson all reprise their roles from series one. With the addition of Élodie Yung as Electra. 

Series 2 goes live on March 18th, 2016.

 

Jessica Jones is granted a second series 

Netflix announced today that they’ve renewed the Krysten Ritter-led Jessica Jones for a second series.

This news won’t come as a surprise to anyone who watched the first series, it was a truly remarkable show. It changed the tone of the MCU and showed a grittier side to the universe. 

The first series told the story of a retired superhero-turned private eye. 

The next Marvel/Netflix show to air will be series 2 of Daredevil, which is available from the 18th of March. 

Matt Murdoch will cameo in Jessica Jones

With Just under a month to go until we’re all binge watching Jessica Jones on Netflix, news has broke that Matt Murdoch will appear in the latest Marvel/Netflix collabration.

According to friend of Bad Wilf, Jon Schnepp Daredevil will definitely be making an appearance in Jessica Jones. We knew one day they would eventually meet, but I wasn’t sure if they would do it so soon, though. Schnepp says:

“You’re definitely gonna see Matt Murdock in Jessica Jones. That’s a fact. He’s in it. I don’t know how they interact, but he’s in the series.”

All four of the Netflix/Marvel series take place in the same corner of Hells kitchen and Daredevil was a huge hit for Netflix back in March, they’d be crazy not include him in some way.

Check out Jon Schnepp talking about it in the video below.
 

Jessica Jones is available on Netflix from the 20th of November.

Snipes talks Marvel

Last month we heard rumours that Marvel were considering a soft reboot of Blade, which would focus on Blade’s daughter, Fallon Grey. It was rumoured at the time that Wesley Snipes would reprise his role, but would now be taking on a Whistler type position within the film. 
In a recent interview, Snipes opened up a little bit more about his conversations with Marvel. 

He said:
“There’s always a possibility, you know. It’s in Marvel’s hands. They’re controlling the pace and the flow with that. Conversations have been good. They see the value in it. We see the value in it. I’m still in shape and fit enough to handle the role. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t really know what’s going to happen to it yet.”

He then spoke about the possibility of Blade interacting with The Avengers:
“That would be interesting. I mean, I know it’s in the comic book. It would be interesting to see where they would place him and where he really would fit in. He’s got to bite somebody. I don’t know who he’s going to bite.”

Personally, I think Blade would be an excellent Netflix series. Having him interact with The Defenders would be amazing.  

First look at David Tennant as The Purple Man

Here’s is the first office look at David Tennant as The Purple man in Marvel/Netflix’s Jessica Jones. But, unlike his comic book counterpart, the live action Kilgrave won’t have purple skin. His trademark colour will be represented by a scarf and a suit. 

The Purple Man has the power of suggestion, which allows him to control anybody in close proximity. 

Jessica Jones release date announced

Marvel have released the first promo for the upcoming Netflix series, Jessica Jones.

They announced that all of the episodes will be released on November 20th at 12:01 am. This is the second of their four-series franchise that will lead to The Defenders. After this, we’ll get Iron Fist, Luke Cage and, a second series of Daredevil.
