It’s no secret that not many enjoyed Suicide Squad. Let me separate myself from that crowd and voice that I indeed enjoyed this film. Yes, critique me, tell me I’m a fake nerd, and mock me for it. All things considering, though; do you really think that Justice League or Batman vs Superman was better? Enough of being snarky; Suicide Squad 2 is confirmed to happen and Rick Flagg’s actor Joel Kinnaman has a feeling the sequel will be more grounded.
Having an MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) version of Spider-Man is great, but did we really need Sony to produce a film centering around the sometimes villain/sometimes anti-hero? Who cares! It features Tom Hardy himself as Eddie Brock and in the end, isn’t that enough to reel in fans? It’s enough to make us stop asking how does this movie in anyway associate itself with the MCU and Tom Holland’s Spidey?
In all seriousness though, with a new age of superhero films, we need a movie centered around someone unexpected. There have been a handful of Batman and Superman remakes.

It’s been around four weeks since DC’s superhero packed feature had its theatrical release and though I’m just seeing it now, I guess it’s better late than never. Let’s get this review started!

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.
There was no other Marvel show I looked forward to the most than The Punisher. From season two of Daredevil, I was hooked on Jon Bernthal as the anti-hero Frank Castle. For a “side character”, we got so much from the second season of Daredevil, but it didn’t even scratch the surface. In many ways, we can throw out what we know about The Punisher and rewrite the narrative. You haven’t met the real Frank Castle until you’ve seen The Punisher.
