The Punisher release date

The trailers and ads for The Punisher have been chock full of violence, gore, and intrigue, but they’re all missing one thing: the release date.

Marvel and Netflix have been frustratingly withholding of the newest street-hero series’ premiere date, following Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. But it may be thanks to an innocuous write-up of the upcoming first season that we may finally know The Punisher release date.

darren aronofsky on mother f cinemescore

The “F” rating on CinemaScore is a dubious badge of honor that has been bestowed on few other films — which range from misunderstood, to mismarketed, to just plain terrible.

Few filmmakers would rejoice in an audience hating their movie, but Darren Aronofsky isn’t like many other filmmakers. The mother! director knows all about his film’s F CinemaScore — the lowest rating a film can get in a poll of audience reactions — and he embraces it. Encourages it, even.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is officially done.

It may seem like that’s coming down to the wire for the film’s December 2017 release date, but it’s par the course for a blockbuster film that requires so many visual effects to wrap its post-production process around this stage. Now it’s only a matter of time before we get inundated with trailers and ads of the finished product.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Release Date

Behind every powerful woman are legions of disgruntled male trolls trying to tear her down. It’s unfortunately a common sight on the internet: a female writer, social media personality, or women in the limelight find themselves subject to increasingly violent threats for a misspoken statement or badly-received work.

It’s even worse when it’s in a traditionally male sphere, like the case of Rick and Morty‘s new female writers. Jane Becker and Jessica Gao were part of a group of four female writers hired onto Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim show in season 3 — which until then had an all-male writers’ room. But this shift in the status quo led some Rick and Morty fans to lash out aggressively against Becker and Gao, harassing them on Twitter and doxxing them (publicly revealing their private information). And that has earned them the wrath of Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon.

matthew vaughn young wolverine

Matthew Vaughn may already be eyeing a Kingsman trilogy, but back in 2011, he almost helmed an X-Men period-piece trilogy.

Or something of the sort. Vaughn launched the floundering X-Men franchise back into relevancy with, ironically, a flash to the past with 2011’s refreshing and bright X-Men: First Class. The superhero movie was set in the 1960s and was anticipated to be the first of several period-set X-Men movies, with a possible sequel centering around a young Wolverine in the ’70s. But the Kingsman came calling and Bryan Singer returned instead to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past. But that won’t stop Vaughn from being nostalgic for the past.

darren aronofsky batman

Darren Aronofsky‘s Batman pitch was one of the famed projects stewing in development hell for years, cast aside by Warner Bros. executives for being too dark a take on a property that generally attracts families. The project, which Aronofsky worked on with Batman: Year One writer Frank Miller in 1999, envisioned an R-rated Batman who grew up on the streets, fighting villains in a ski mask and wielding brass knuckles.

But Aronofsky didn’t get his chance to do his “Travis Bickle”-style Batman, and the Caped Crusader got his gritty, realistic reboot with Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Begins instead. But with Aronofsky on his mother! press tour, questions about his Batman project keep coming up, and he revealed who he would have cast if his film had come to pass.
