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.
We’re only a few weeks away from the premiere of Marvel’s largest mashup yet, Avengers: Infinity War. After ten years and eighteen films, we’ve finally come to the point where this has all been heading towards. It’s sometimes funny to think back to the first Avengers movie. We had a glimpse of Thanos and knew he would be a formidable force to reckon with. Did we ever think it would take this long? Did we ever think there would be so many characters that we would come to love in the years in between? Every film, from Antman, to Age of Ultron, to Black Panther, everything we’ve seen has been leading up to one epic movie. I know, I’m rambling. But, don’t we all feel like this is more than just a movie and these characters are more than just fictional?
There are plenty of speculations floating around about what we may expect from the second season of Marvel’s The Punisher. Some have teased Suicide Run and Slavers storylines for the next season to the popular Netflix show. Whatever direction they decide to go with, I have a good feeling. Jon Bernthal was a stand-out in Daredevil and his debut show was everything I could have hoped for and more. An interview with Felicia D. Henderson, a writer, producer, and director, made me even more pumped for what’s to come.
