iZombie may have announced that its fifth season would be their last, but for some cast members, Team Z will last forever. Rahul Kohli, Malcolm Goodwin, and Liv Moore herself, Rose McIver, marked themselves with the classic “i” in their show’s name. While this may not be the most newsworthy of stories, it’s still heartwarming to see. Five seasons are a good amount for a show to still have substantial content, without feeling like it’s dragging on. Regardless, as fans, we see everyone in their roles and stories and forget that one day they won’t be those beloved characters anymore. To see them dedicated to what the show means to them and us, it’s a sight for sore eyes.
While Christmas only comes once a year, new behind the scenes photos and videos of The Punisher S2 surfacing are gifts enough for this fan. It’s a very good time of year for us fans of Netflix’s Marvel shows. Daredevil’s season three seems well underway, Iron Fist S2 has started filming, and Luke Cage season two premieres June 22nd of this year.
To me, the most anticipated one is the second season of The Punisher. Jon Bernthal knocked his role as Frank Castle out of the park in the first season. Another stellar performance was Ben Barnes as Frank’s now frenemy Billy Russo. If you haven’t finished watching the first season, turn back now because there’s spoilers ahead.
As filming for the third season of Netflix’s hit Daredevil continues, we fans are gifted with the confirmation that infamous assassin Bullseye has been added as the show’s new big bad. Wilson Bethel will be premiering as the comic book villain. Originally cast as an “FBI agent”, Bethel instead will officially be Bullseye and I’m not sure whether to be excited or scared.
About two months ago, Sony released their first look at their last-ditched effort at Marvel movies. The trailer for their Venom movie was…lackluster at best. I myself wasn’t even impressed and considering Tom Hardy is starring in it, I wanted to be more excited than I was. Sony’s take on the well-known anti-hero is running in association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although Tom Holland will not be appearing as Spider-Man, which seems strange to a lot of fans.
After two long years, HBO’s mind spinning Westworld returned for a second season. Not to be outdone by its predecessor, season two introduces the audience to even more questions and storylines. Unlike the first season, we know that the show operates in a series of different timelines, but that doesn’t make it any easier to keep up! Though, I believe some of the fun is in knowing that time isn’t linear. Don’t get too caught up in trying to figure everything out, I have a feeling the threads are only going to unravel even further as the episodes go.
