One batch, two batch, penny, and dime!
The Punisher is set to become another Netflix Original and will have his own series coming soon! Now I spoke about Jon Bernthal’s contract a few months ago, as a source I have told me some very new, very private information. Now I can proudly stand up and say that the scoop I gave GeekNerdNet.com from my source was pretty much right on, and it feels good. I’m 1/1 on Marvel scoops and may very well stop there, being 100% is a nice feeling. Now I was told a “Marvel film” was a possibility and he also signed for two “TV shows” mind you in this day and age Netflix accounts for TV so there we go, now if he appears in a movie I’d be over the top on that, but how many street level characters are we going to see in the big boy films? I’m happy Bernthal/The Punisher just received a Netflix Original season, it definitely shows how ridiculously popular the character was, and the sympathy we all felt for a man who was basically broken makes for better watching in my humble opinion.
This one is a short fun blurb if you didn’t know, have hidden under a rock, or don’t
know what Disney is, next week is Star Wars Day also known as May the 4th is next week! Wednesday to be exact, so pull out your Vader or Kylo helmet, your Wookiee shirt, or anything else from that “Galaxy Far Far Away” and enjoy a nice fun day!
It seems this next week is riddled with fun times because on May 6th Captain America: Civil War is out in theaters and I don’t know about you, but I feel like I would have seen half the movie with the 30 plus TV spots Marvel has put out, maybe slow it down there guys. You already have the fan base, you don’t need to force a movie everyone has been waiting for down our throats. All-in-all though I’m excited for it and will definitely see it more than once, because although I love DC I also Love Marvel, blasphemy you say? I say you’re foolish if you have to separate them, or pit one against another, they both can be great all on their own. I am looking forward to the deeper introductions into the Scarlet Witch and Vision, as well as the evolution of the Falcon. Bringing in Ant-Man for a little light heartedness, and Black Panther for another twist and agenda is always interesting. With so many characters and the return of Spider-Man to his roots in Marvel I am excited to see how they use him, and how much of a part he plays in the whole movie. From what I have seen there is so much going on it’ll be a little bit squished in there, but if they learned anything from doing too much with Age of Ultron I feel they will be in safe hands and do a great job. Early reports have it being a fantastic time and a movie you’ll definitely want to see.
Now here’s a tad bit of information you may not have had before, now take a deep breath because I know a lot is going on next week, but make sure to visit a participating comic book store for Free Comic Book Day’s 15th anniversary! So go to your favorite comic book ho spot and enjoy the festivities! A lot of places are having signings, giveaways, food, and all sorts of different types of fun.
As always folks share, enjoy, comment, but never hate!
