It all started in 2008 with the first release of Iron Man. From the first introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a movie featuring the Avengers going up against Thanos has been highly anticipated. Here we are, years later, a dozen new characters introduced, and only months away from the biggest event in the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War is in our sights and Good Morning America just released the first trailer.
Due to being an impulsive person at times, I decided to see Thor: Ragnarok last night instead of waiting until Wednesday when schedule to see it with mom (sorry ma). I am thankful though that I get to see this marvelous film again, but it is an experience that needs to be seen again.
If I am being completely honest with myself, and it’s taken a while for me to be; the previous Thor movies were…subpar. Of course, the first movie was essentially the one that got me into the MCU. There had been Iron Man and that was great, but it was Tom Hiddleston’s performance as Loki that captured me. But, that was it. I always found myself fast forwarding to the Loki parts in the first one and The Dark World was….boring.
It felt like an eternity waiting for the news, but today was finally the day. No more than an hour ago, The Punisher Twitter dropped the latest trailer after a series of small tips and hints as to what was to come in the new show.
November 17th of 2017 will be the day that most Marvel fans will be looking forward to with baited breath. Ever since his debut in Daredevil, many have waited to see Frank Castle get his own series and the small tidbits have made the wait all the longer. The newest trailer gives a deeper look into what made Frank The Punisher and how he plans on bringing down the people that turned him into a personal weapon.
The music is what makes the trailer, as we feel the adrenaline going through the Punisher’s footsteps, holding our breaths as we realize how big the conspiracy with Frank Castle truly has been. Not only the DA, but the American government is involved with bringing down the man. It seems to be that many of Frank Castle’s old friends will be showing their faces too as we are greeted by even more new characters and how their roles will affect Frank.
One more month and we will all be calling in sick to binge-watch The Punisher bringing down something much bigger than himself.
As an update from a previous article, an official trailer for IFC’s dark thriller Sweet Virginia has finally been released! Completely unexpected, the trailer dropped and everyone who has been excited about Jon Bernthal playing Sam Rossi have been rejoicing. The drama starring Bernthal and Christopher Abbott premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and those who saw it, praised it.
In typical Frank Castle style, The Punisher twitter page doesn’t make anything easy for its fans. Having been elusive prior to The Defenders premiere, the twitter page dedicated to Frank Castle’s show has slowly been creeping out from under a rock. While fans anxiously wait for a premiere date to the highly anticipated show, we were given a small gift…we just had to decode it.
Just the other day, The Punisher’s twitter page posted a numerous amount of tweets that seemed to confuse many – including me. Finally, someone figured out that these odds symbols were, in fact, Morse code. Grea! Who knows Morse code? Luckily, these messages were decoded and what we were given, were the titles of all thirteen episodes for The Punisher season one.
- 3 am
- Two Dead Men
- The Judas Goat
- Cold Steel
- Front Toward Enemy
- Virtue of the Vicious
- Danger Close
- Memento Mori
It’s something small, but it’s at least something! Having the episode titles gives us a slight tidbit of what direction The Punisher series/season is going to go in. Officials told us that the Frank Castle centric show would have more of a military feel than the other Netflix Marvel shows. That and the small teaser trailer released this week, we can surmise there’s also going to be a bit of espionage. Which, makes sense, since, towards the end of Daredevil season 2, we found that the slaying of Frank Castle’s family was no random accident. Hopefully, these are questions that will be answered soon.
