luke cage clip

Luke Cage doesn’t premiere on Netflix until the end of the month, but Marvel isn’t being shy with the new clips. The first few teases showed off Mike Colter as Power Man himself, with the unbreakable skinned superhero absorbing punishment, dishing out pain, and finding himself in need of some new clothes. The newest clip places the focus on one of the chief villains he’ll be battling during the show’s first season: Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, played by House of Cards and The Hunger Games series star Mahershala Ali.

The Defenders

Everyone involved in Avengers: Infinity War has pretty much dashed all hopes of seeing some of Marvel’s television heroes on the big screen in the upcoming epic crossover event film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Marvel television head Jeph Loeb have both cited off the list of reasons why it probably wouldn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean it won’t.

In a new interview, Infinity War filmmakers the Russo Brothers give fans some hope that Netflix’s The Defenders (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) could still appear. Could we see Marvel’s tv heroes in Infinity War? They also again confirm that Brie Larson will appear in the film as Captain Marvel. Find out what they had to say, after the jump.

the punisher villain

The villains have often been the highlight of Marvel’s Netflix series, with Vincent D’Onofrio’s Walter Fisk emerging as the standout character of Daredevil and David Tennant leaving quite an impression as the psychic sociopath Kilgrave on Jessica Jones. Luke Cage looks to be following suit with a baddie played by House of Cards star, Mahershala Ali. So when an antagonist is cast in a new Marvel/Netflix series, you stand up and pay attention. 

And that brings us to today’s news: Ben Barnes has been reportedly cast as a villain in the upcoming The Punisher, which will give Jon Bernthal’s vengeful vigilante his own series after stealing so many scenes in Daredevil season 2.

Mr. Sinister in Wolverine 3

It’s only been four months since X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, but it feels like it’s been much longer. That might be a testament to just how forgettable of an X-Men sequel it was, even though I did find enough to enjoy in it to keep me from simply hating it. Now we’re being reminded of the film again as it’s now available on Digital HD and will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD on October 4th, and the release of the film on home video has provided us with confirmation of one particular detail in the forthcoming Wolverine 3.

The Marvel Comics villain Mr. Sinister has been confirmed to be a villain in Wolverine 3, which as we already know will mark Hugh Jackman‘s last time playing the adamantium-clad mutant. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

The Toxic Avenger remake coming

The co-director of Sausage Party has signed on to reboot The Toxic Avenger. No, I’m not talking about Seth Rogen or Evan Goldberg, but Conrad Vernon, who co-directed the R-rated animated film alongside Greg Tiernan (its a common misconception that Goldberg and Rogen directed the film, as they co-wrote the screenplay and produced).

Chris Pratt Wants Star-Lord To Meet The Punisher

star-lord and the punisher

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is filled with exciting possibilities. Part of the enormous fun in The Avengers films or Captain America: Civil War is seeing these heroes interact with each other, and seeing how their personalities clash in those interchanges. But if you ask Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt, the character he would be most interested in seeing Star-Lord meeting on the big screen would have to be The Punisher.

x-men apocalypse deleted scene

In a summer filled with high profile duds, X-Men: Apocalypse reigns supreme. At least Independence Day: Resurgence was audacious and insane and totally bonkers. At least Suicide Squad was bad in ways that generate great conversations. Bryan Singer’s fourth X-Men movie, and the eighth film in the franchise overall, is the kind of movie that takes two and a half hours of your time and exits your brain while you’re still watching it. It’s the kind of bad movie that doesn’t even have the decency to leave an impact.

Although the Blu-ray and DVD for X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t arrive until next month, a deleted scene from the film has arrived online and it’s…well, it’s interesting. I wouldn’t call it a good scene, but it’s the kind of weirdness that the final cut desperately needs.
