The Punisher TV Show Footage Revealed at Comic-Con

Hall H was filled with thousands of Comic-Con attendees ready to learn more about The Defenders, the Netflix series that unites the heroes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. But first, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb had a special surprise for the crowd. Jon Bernthal took the stage and we all instantly realized what was coming. After all, Bernthal played Frank Castle (known in the criminal underworld as The Punisher) in season 2 of Daredevil and we knew he was getting his own spin-off.

And so the audience got to watch the first footage from The Punisher, which was quickly followed by a string of other Marvel Television announcements…including an official announcement of Iron Fist season 2.

AMC’s Preacher is based on one of the most popular (and controversial) comic books of the past few decades, so it’s right at home at Comic-Con.

It’s been two years since Channing Tatum took the Hall H stage at Comic-Con 2015 to take a photo with the massive assemblage of X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool cast members during 20th Century Fox’s panel.

Y The Last Man TV Show

An adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra‘s sixty-issue comic book series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for years –  first as a movie and then, thankfully, as a TV show, which is a much better fit for the sprawling tale.

But the show has been in the works at FX for a long time now, so what’s up with the delay? According to writer/showrunner Michael Green, you can blame the 2016 presidential election for the long wait.

Game of Thrones Comic-Con Panel

Due to a shifted production schedule, this year’s Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel arrived at a very interesting time. Season 7 of HBO’s fantasy drama (arguably the most popular show in the world) was still airing as members of the series’ cast assembled at the front of Hall H to talk about all things Westeros, a first for the show.

And because there was nothing gigantic to reveal beyond a brisk look at the episodes ahead (teasing the return of a major character), the panel was just an extended riffing session, with the various actors cutting loose, goofing off, and spitballing about various aspects of the show.

Luc Besson interview

When filmmaker Luc Besson was 10 years old, he was reading the comic book he’d adapt into a massive feature film 48 years later. Based on Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières‘ “Ambassador of Shadows,” published in 1975, Besson has brought their colorful, wacky world to to the big screen with his personal touch on every frame. From the complex, clever set pieces to the jokes to the colorful environments, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is pure Besson.

In a race against the clock, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) will have to save the city of Alpha, where alien species from all over the galaxy come together to share knowledge. The world feels endless, full of all sorts of aliens, characters, and environments. It took many years it took to build this world piece-by-piece, and the French director behind La Femme Nikita and The Fifth Element recently told us about the process.

Below, check out our Luc Besson interview.

Only the Brave trailer

Joseph Kosinski’s first two films, Tron: Legacy and Oblivion, lived in fantasy land. Both science-fiction movies showed what a precise eye he has, with smooth camerawork and stunning compositions. He’s crafted two lavish, visually appealing films, which, dramatically, sometimes leave more to be desired. The director is taking on more dramatic material with his next feature, Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

Below, watch the Only the Brave trailer.
