the punisher new york comic con

Update: It seems that Netflix originally planned a surprise release date for The Punisher (its release date was intentionally obscured in all promotional materials) this month, with some stories suggesting that the show would drop as early as this weekend. However, in addition to pulling the series from NYCC, the surprise release date has been postponed as well. No release date has been set, but the series is still expected to premiere in 2017.

The Punisher New York Comic Con panel has been cancelled by Marvel and Netflix in the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The panel was initially scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 7, but the superhero television series, which follows a gun-toting vigilante, was pulled from NYCC out of respect for the 58 victims killed in the shooting.

8 Movies That Inspired War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes is a sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and a prequel to Planet of the Apes. But when it came time for Matt Reeves and Mark Bomback to write the script, the Apes movies were far from the only ones they looked to for inspiration. War for the Planet of the Apes is a war film, of course, but it’s also got shades of a Biblical epic and a Western drama. Below, let’s look at eight movies that inspired War for the Planet of the ApesRead More »

War for the Planet of the Apes

20th Century Fox kicked off their War for the Planet of the Apes marketing campaign with a bang at New York Comic-Con on Thursday, unveiling the very first footage for the film in front of an enthusiastic crowd of fans and journalists.

NYCC cosplay

New York Comic Con has come and gone, and while there wasn’t any particularly huge news to come out of the convention, there was still plenty of cool stuff to see. Some Pepsi Perfect bottles were handed out to Marty McFly cosplayers, but there were plenty more dressed up fans as a new music video illustrates.

The folks at Sneaky Zebra have put together a slick but simple little music video that shows off some of the best NYCC cosplay, but in a much more stylish way than snapping a photo and throwing it in a gallery. Just watch the first minute, and once you get to that shot of Rick Sanchez (of the incredible Rick and Morty) with the Meseeks, you’ll want to watch the whole thing. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Jared Leto and Mark Ruffalo

More often than not, the actors and actresses who bring your favorite comic book characters to life on the big screen are fans just like you. They grew up idolizing certain superheroes, and it’s a dream for them to be playing them, just as it is for you to see them become as real as they can on film. However, they can’t enjoy fandom the way we can without being swamped by other fans who want to take pictures with them and want their autograph.

But plenty of stars have found an awesome workaround that helps them fit in with the masses of fans, even at a place that’s overrun with the most rabid of them: cosplay. Many an actor and actress have worn costumes in order to walk the showfloor at Comic-Con without being mobbed by fans, and Jared Leto and Mark Ruffalo have just joined their ranks. Read More »
