You may have seen your fair share of heist movies, but have you ever seen one done by the Steve McQueen and Gillian Flynn before? No, you have not. That is what is setting this star-studded movie apart from all other heist movies. When you have possibly one of the best directors of all time pairing up with one of the greatest modern-day authors, you get Widows. If McQueen and Flynn aren’t enough to bring you to the table, you should check out the cast list.
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.

Coming from an Amish family, “Leo” was not able to get the surgery he needed to repair his vocal cords and as a result, lost his ability to speak. Now an adult, he bartends and carves wood and the movie really begins when he realizes his girlfriend has vanished without a trace.
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.
