The Punisher Gets a First Trailer

Punisher

For the few that binged the entirety of The Defenders since its release this morning, you received a gift in the form of the first Punisher trailer. The rest of us? Well, it’s been leaked online! The trailer is short but does a good job of showing the tone of what to expect from the ultra-violent vigilante.

We get shots of Frank Castle reliving his time in the Middle East, as well as the murder and memories of his family, interspersed with the man himself pummeling a concrete floor, revealing the iconic skull logo. Hit the jump to check out the trailer, which was posted on Twitter.

Real Final Defenders Trailer

Well, ignore that previous final trailer, because it totally wasn’t the real final trailer. With hours remaining until The Defenders hits Netflix, they’ve decided to drop one more trailer on us, with plenty more footage of the series. How they’ve been able to keep so many mysteries with all of this footage unveiled is beyond me.

The final trailer is a doozy showing not only teamwork between our heroes, but dissension, as well. Iron Fist going toe-to-toe with Daredevil would be a hell of a thing to watch, so needless to say, I’m pretty damn excited for this show to go live tomorrow!

New Trailer for Thor: Battle Royale

If you’re unsure of the film I’m talking about, well, it’s actually the official title of Thor: Ragnarok in Japan. Thor: Battle Royale sounds way cooler, so I am intensely jealous of that update. With that in mind, Thor: Battle Royale has a new trailer with a new glimpse of Doctor Strange in the film, and plenty of new footage.

You can hit the jump to check out the full trailer, which Avengers’ Japan social media accounts posted to Twitter this afternoon, in their awesome, localized Japanese formats.

New Comic Books: August 16

NEWCOMICS

This week was an unbelievable week for comics, made so by the first issue of DC’s massive and ridiculous event, Metal, which is shaping up to be something immensely special and fun for fans of DC Comics. On top of that, so many mainline heroes had releases, with the entire Trinity dropping books this week. Plus, the first issue of Gotham City Garage!

WW

This was a pretty decent issue, but didn’t quite have the stakes that previous issues in this arc did. It’ll be nice to see Diana team with her friends to take down some ridiculous-looking assassins, but it’s not exactly something we haven’t seen up to this point. Overall, a good continuation, and lead-in to where this arc is going, as it seems to be more filler than anything.

SM

Super-Parallax! This was a great change of pace for the Man of Steel after he’s spent the last several months fighting classic foes from his youth. Now he’s up against the entity of fear, Parallax, in a fresh story, that you don’t see very often. Superman just won’t let up with the great stories since Rebirth, and this is absolutely no different.

JL

There’s a lot of fun story-telling happening this week, with the origins of the Justice League’s future children coming to light. The revelation that Jessica Cruz and Barry Allen have three children together made me practically fall out of my chair, and the thought that Diana could abandon her child? There’s something strange happening there. Something that we don’t know just yet. This has been a fun story already, and a lot of mystery still remains.

BM

This was a somber, slow-moving issue that built up to a fantastic reveal, that Batman would be joining a side in the War of Jokes and Riddles. The nine-course dinner was a tense back-drop to the chemistry between Joker and Riddler, with Bruce Wayne in the middle, attempting to play the part of a supposed peacemaker, but in the end, offering up his alter-ego as a prize for the victor. Batman’s plans are always best-laid, and it’ll be interesting to see how this one ends.

METAL

I have been waiting for this event for months, and now, with Metal upon us, I am not disappointed. This is so ridiculous, and so fantastic. This is everything that a comic book event should be. The story is slowly already starting to make a small bit of sense, and the inclusion of so many heroes that we haven’t seen in so long really make it feel like something special. This is absolutely my recommendation for the week, because if you’re a fan of DC Comics, this is going to make you giddy.

 

THOR

I was a little worried at first when the War Thor seemed to be making quick work of the Queen of Cinders after all the fan-fare and work they put into building her into a massive force to be reckoned with, but my fears were alleviated when she basically cut him in half. I’m somewhat hoping for a Thor reunion where Volstagg reveals himself as the War Thor, and Jane reveals herself as Thor, given their history and close friendship.

GCG

Being a digital-first story, the format for this was short, but sweet. It’s obvious this is going to be an incredibly fun Elseworlds title, and with an interesting mix of heroes and villains forming an all-female biker gang… well, that’s the beginning of a kickass story. The art is great, and the story is getting across a ton of info in such a short format. Very impressive.

David Tennant Returning as Kilgrave for Jessica Jones Season 2

dt

Entertainment Weekly has posted a new set picture for the second season of Jessica Jones that confirms that David Tennant’s fan-favorite Kilgrave, will return. This brings up quite a few questions, considering the murderous character was killed at the end of the first season. Perhaps flashbacks? Or maybe he’ll be a sort of ghost of Jessica’s past that haunts her, for what she did.

Time will tell, as Jessica Jones season 2 debuts next year on Netflix.

Final Defenders Trailer Hits

Marvel’s The Defenders releases in less than a week, and to celebrate the occasion, Netflix has released the final trailer for the superhero television team-up. The final trailer gives us plenty more footage from several of the fights we’ve already seen, as well as a bit more banter between our heroes.

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City, from its most diabolical villain yet: a mysterious woman named Alexandria (Sigourney Weaver). Hit the jump to check out the final trailer.

Sony Pictures has set a release date for the upcoming Spider-Man spinoff film, Silver & Black, for a February 8, 2019 release date. The film stars Felicia Hardy a.k.a. Black Cat and Silver Sablinova a.k.a. Silver Sable as they embark on an adventure that is set to be a thriller chock-full of various Spider-Man enemies and familiar faces.

Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball) is helming the female superhero adventure with a script from Lisa Joy (Westworld) and Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok). Rumors have circulated for quite some time about the story, but nothing has been set in stone as of yet.

Is Riz Ahmed Carnage?

carnage

The Tracking Board is reporting that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Riz Ahmed is in final talks to star alongside Tom Hardy in the upcoming Venom film in a mystery role along with Matt Smith, Pedro Pascal and Mathias Schoenarts. While the role is a mystery, several outlets are reporting that he’s playing Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, the rumored villain of the film.

Carnage is the spawn of Venom, and a crazed psychopathic symbiote hell-bent on death and destruction with its host. Carnage’s red color comes from its intensely close blood bond between the symbiote and Kasady after it entered his blood-stream.

New Comic Books: August 9

NEWCOMICS

It was a pretty week for comics. DC launched a new groundbreaking book, and Marvel continued their streak of great Secret Empire entries. But those weren’t even my pick for the week, as DC’s space cops have finally taken back the crown.

AC

Yay! After the wonderful throwbacks we’ve been getting for months of Superman stories, we’re finally back to a semblance of status-quo between the relationship of Superman and Lex Luthor. The thought of them teaming up is cool, but the two of them having a fist-fight for the ages is even better. Superman con

GL

I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorite stories for the next several weeks. The Green Lanterns, fighting a Kirby-esque villain alongside the New Gods with fantastic art to boot. Stories like this are the reason that Green Lantern is my favorite hero, and why I will always say that with the write story, he’s the best character in all of comics. This was awesome.

MM

Tom King and Mitch Gerads hasve been an all-star team for the last year and a half, and this is no different. The story seems to be out there, but is absolutely engaging and going to be just as interesting as his Vision story last year. It’s been a while since Mister Miracle and Big Barda have been the focal point of their own story, so I can’t wait for more.

SE

It pains me how good Secret Empire has actually been. I’ve never been a fan of its art, but the story has been wonderful, which is very much not Marvel-like in the case of comic books. This issue was an about-face from its usual brutal fashion, with a bit of hope finally being granted to the heroes of the Marvel Universe. Slowly, the mysterious story of shirtless Steve Rogers is starting to make a bit of sense, as most likely happening within the cosmic cube itself… at least that’s my theory.

FLASH

Giving the Flash a new power-set, and further fueling the fire that Barry Allen is his own worst enemy is genius from a story-telling perspective. Barry has been grappling with his personal demons and responsibilities as The Flash for quite some time, and it’s coming to a head in a really slow-burn sort of way, and it’s been a lot of fun to read.

Another Look at Josh Brolin’s Cable

Ryan Reynolds posted another look at Josh Brolin’s Cable in the upcoming Deadpool 2, with this one being a full-costume look at his comic accurate styling. The second image is even more comic accurate with Cable’s techno-organic virus look fantastic, and all the amazing weapons on his person.

“We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future,” Reynolds said on Twitter, confirming that Nathan Summers is still a time-traveler in the film. Hit the jump to get a full look at the new image.

First Look at Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2

cable

Last week, we got several first looks at Zazie Beetz’ incredible rendition of Domino in the upcoming Deadpool 2, and now we have our first look at Deadpool’s long-time “partner” in crime, and time-traveling mutant, Cable. Compared to Domino, Josh Brolin’s Cable is spot-on for his comic book counterpart, and looks absolutely the part. His iconic glowing eye, scar, and metal arm look sure to be gorgeous in the film.

Ryan Reynolds posted the first look on his Twitter (just like last week), and you can hit the jump to see the image in full glory.

The Spider-Man Japan Official Twitter account has posted an official poster for the premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming in Japan, and it’s absolutely epic. Celebrated manga artist Yusuke Murata (One-Punch Man, Eyeshield 21) has long been a fan of Spider-Man, which is clearly evidence by this great art for the wall-crawler.

Spider-Man: Homecoming currently sits at $641 million worldwide, and is set to open in Japan on August 11, after premiering in Tokyo on August 07. Hit the jump to check out the incredible poster in full.
