‘The Punisher’ spin-off series coming to Netflix


It’s official!

The Punisher, last seen in Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, is getting his own series.  Portrayed by ‘Walking Dead’ alum Jon Bernthal, Frank Castle (Punisher) forces Daredevil to question how far his willing to go in his crusade for justice in Hell’s Kitchen.

Unlike so many of his Marvel brethren, The Punisher has no qualms with using brutal, torturous and often lethal force, to get his message across.  When he’s not protecting the city, he’s usually on his own personal quest for vengeance after his wife and two children were gunned down by criminals in broad daylight.   The Punisher has been portrayed three times in movie theaters.  Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson have all taken on the skull-adorned serial avenger with little to no success.

After the tremendous positive reception Bernthal’s portrayal of Marvel’s bloodiest hero (sorry Deadpool) has received, it’s no surprise that Netflix has finally signed on the dotted line.

Pete’s Dragon Remake Reveals It’s Elliott


Only one short month after Disney unleashed the first teaser-trailer for their remake of the 70’s cult-classic Pete’s Dragon (watch it here), they finally reveal the new design for the lovable Elliot.

This was his original design, taken from a classic scene that really made me want to try a scorched apple when I was a kid…

And thanks to EntertainmentWeekly, we now know what he looks like in 2016:


A little fuzzier than he once was but it definitely gives him a friendlier, cuddly appearance- somewhat evoking the innocent vibe that the original pink-haired, cel-shaded design gave.  The face, while adding cat-like eyes and mouth, retains the larger jaw of his goofy predecessor.

I’m looking forward to seeing how he looks in motion!
