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 Godzilla: Monster Planet Trailer

Toho Animation and Polygon Pictures have released a new trailer for the upcoming Netflix-animated film, Godzilla: Monster Planet, and with the new trailer, we have our first good look at the all-new Godzilla design created specifically for the animated film. The film follows hero, Haruo, who is selected to return to Earth with one purpose in mind after witnessing his parents death before his eyes: defeat Godzilla.

Godzilla: Monster Planet debuts in Japan this November followed by a release on Netflix. Godzilla: Monster Planet is from Polygon Pictures and directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Shshita, with a script from Gen Urobuchi.

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.

Stranger Things Season 2 Trailer

SDCCtag

At this year’s SDCC, Netflix debuted the first full trailer for season 2 of its mega-phenomenon, Stranger Things. The new trailer shows how important Will is to this season, with his flashes to the Upside-Down being of utmost importance. Meanwhile, Eleven finds her way out as the two worlds begin to merge.

The trailer is incredible, and one of the best to come out of the show, with a mind-boggling remix of Michael Jackson’s thriller, and a voice-over from Vincent Price. Stranger Things season 2 premieres October 27th.

New Defenders Trailer

SDCCtag

Netflix has debuted a new trailer for The Defenders, with less than a month before the release of the mini-series, and it gives us a ton of new footage, with a better look at Sigourney Weaver in her mysterious and villainous role, as well as banter between our heroes, both in and out of costume.

The new trailer is the best so far, and really sells the dynamic between all of them. I’m really hoping this works out, and the series format allows our heroes to find chemistry with each other in the best, most organic ways.

Netflix Premieres First Clip from Death Note

SDCCtag

While at their SDCC Panel, Netflix also premiered the first clip from the Adam Wingard-directed horror-thriller adaptation of Death Note. The clips sees Light Turner meet Ryuk for the first time in a tense battle of wills, as Light succumbs to the throes of the Death Note for the first time, and is coerced to write in its pages.

Death Note does not look like a great movie, in all honesty. It could be good as a standalone film, but thus far, as a Death Note property, it’s not inspiring much confidence. We’ll find out August 25th, when Death Note drops on Netflix.

Marvel Studios has unveiled two new posters that they’ll be giving out to attendees at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The first, seen above, is a cool promotional poster for The Defenders featuring our 4 heroes in what amounts to their costumes at this point, stylized with a colorful New York back-drop.

The second, however, seen after the jump, gives us our first look at The Punisher logo, and the usual stylized artwork of Frank Castle holding a sniper rifle, bloodied and battered. It’s a cool poster, that falls in line with the usual initial style these posters are released as. Hopefully, we’ll see some sort of trailer or footage at SDCC!
