The Punisher Spotlighted in DAREDEVIL Season 2 Featurette with Intense New Footage

Marvel has released a new featurette for Daredevil today that focuses on Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher. The video is loaded with new footage from the series and features Jon Bernthal talking about his character and being involved with this world. It also goes into some detail about the kind of relationship that The Punisher has with Daredevil and teases so much badassery! 

Bernthal also released a brief behind-the-scenes video clip earlier this week of him as The Punisher blasting off a couple rounds on the set of Daredevil. As you will see, he is sporting his signature skull-logo outfit. We have no idea who he is taking shots at, but whoever it is is in for a world of hurt. 

Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios. Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero. 

The series also stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Élodie Yung, and Rosario Dawson. Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 starts streaming on Netlix on March 18th, 2016.

One batch. Two batch. Penny and dime.

Keanu Reeves Offers Update on BILL & TED 3 – “We’re Closer and We’re Not Closer”

There's been talk of a Bill & Ted 3 movie being in development since 2010, and after all that time it doesn't seem like it's any closer to going into production. Over the years, both Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have offered updates on the film. Sometimes it seems like things are progressing, while at other times there seems to be no movement at all. 

IGN Had the opportunity to talk to Reeves recently and they pointed out that in 2014 the actor told them, “We’re closer, but we’re not closer.” Then in 2015 they asked him about the film again and he said, "We're closer, we're closer." Now he has reverted back to his first statement, "We’re closer and we’re not closer."

When I read that I just can't help but hear Reeves saying it as his character Ted "Theodore" Logan, and it makes me laugh. He went on to say that they are "expecting another draft and hopefully we’ll get closer.”

Regardless of the lack of movement, the actor is still very enthusiastic about the project. They are just taking their time with “the actualization of that concept.”

“We’re just trying to get the script together. We’re trying to get the story right. We’re working with this studio so we have a little bit of support, in a sense of like if the material comes through we’ll try and make this picture. We’re really just still trying to get the story right."

Hey, at least they are still trying, and they are trying to give fans the best sequel possible. That's got to count for something. Reeves previously talked about the story for the film a few years back saying:

"It's kind of like… I call it 'gravity,' you have to get this mass together to make it happen. In terms of the writers' voices being too peculiar, in this case no. I think they've really crafted something that's funny. [Bill and Ted have] been weighed down by the burden of having to save the world by the song, and they just can't write it. They're losing their wives and their children, they're losing their families.
"Yeah, they're just like, 'Dude, we have to write the song!' The future comes back and says if you don't write the song by this certain time the universe is going to unravel and history and everything is going to change and dinosaurs are gonna walk the Earth. Jesus is playing baseball! All sorts of weird things start unraveling and wormholes are twisting. We have to kind of bring order back, and it's connected into bringing our families together by writing a song."

He also offered a description of a scene in the movie:

"It's edgy. There's a great scene where Bill and Ted are in jail and we're seeing our future us's and they're all tatted and hard. They're like, [tough sounding] 'What's up, dude? Hey dude. Hey guy.' 'Stop calling me dude!' They want to beat up Bill and Ted because they've inherited the life that they f**ked up. They're miserable and they hate Bill and Ted. There's some funny stuff!"

I have no idea if this is still the direction they are taking the story, but it sounds like a hilariously fun concept for a sequel. This sequel needs to be made, and I hope they finally get around to making this thing because I want to see it! 

Cool Animated Biker Zombie Short HORDE

Blessed are the content stealers, for their lies shall be exposed by the web and ultimately mean more publicity for the original. Some jabronis on Reddit tried to claim this very well made biker zombie short as their own, but something seemed fishy. How did something so cool only have 125 views? Well I did some digging, and it turns out "Horde" is about a year old and was made by BRVTS Collective!

It still didn't have enough views for my liking, so check it out!

Jesse Eisenberg Needed Multiple Takes for a Basketball Scene in BATMAN V SUPERMAN

Jesse Eisenberg appeared on Fallon last night to discuss Batman v Superman and revealed a little bit more about the film we're all dying to see! Apparently, there's a basketball scene that Eisenberg had to do as Luthor. Basically, Lex had to no look swish a 3 pointer and then turn around and begin his line.

If that sounds hard, try living it like Eisenberg did...

"That was like the 30th take...it's not because I'm like terrible...I was making them all day...the pressure was so intense and then the character needs to turn around and have this very confident villainous greeting to these people but I just looked like a guy who just made a shot after 30 baskets which is exhausted and apologetic."

Glad he finally made it happen! Can't wait for this movie!


Insanely Action-Packed Kung-Fu Western-Inspired Short – THE MAN FROM DEATH

I’ve got an incredibly fun short film for you to watch today called "The Man From Death." This thing is completely off the hook! It’s an adrenaline-fueled Western genre film that awesomely includes elements of Kung-Fu, video games, and bloody violence.

The film was created by Stream Team, and the story centers on a man who is seeking revenge for his wife’s death, which he does with the help of a mysterious list of prophecies. The short features some awesome VFX and practical effects. On top of that, there is some pretty sweet ass fight choreography that you’re gonna love. Here’s the synopsis:

A poor, dumb sap, Elijah Stryder and his wife, Mrs. Stryder, are attacked by the nefarious Ailester Hall and left for dead in the wild wild west. That poor sap, Stryder, awakens with a mysterious green colored list of prophecies that lead him on a journey of fun and fancy free adventures with his skeptical partner, Sergio. There is only one caveat, Stryder is not allowed to take revenge on the man who shot and killed his wife. Can Stryder keep his composure and learn how to forgive, or will he ruin it for everybody? It might be the latter.

This is seriously one of the most entertainingly fantastic shorts I’ve seen so far this year. Enjoy!

BETTER CALL SAUL Renewed for Season 3

Deadline is reporting AMC has given the go ahead for a 3rd season of Better Call Saul! For fans of Breaking Bad who HAVEN'T been watching...you're missing out! Sure we don't have Walter White, meth use, or Jesse saying "bitch," but damn this show holds up! Watching Jimmy McGill slowly become Saul Goodman is very much the same decline we saw in Walter White.

Obviously I'm a big fan of the show. Is anyone not watching? If you're looking to get on board now, watch the first season on Netflix and catch up on this current season ASAP.

Parody: ARROW Writing Staff Explains What Happened With Season 3

If you're someone who frequents the community of /r/Arrow, you hold these truths to be self evident...

  • The show has become too Felicity centric.
  • Season three sucked.
  • Oliver needs to kill again.

I agree with one of those three. To be honest, I'm completely fine with Felicity so long as it means less Laurel! Oliver doesn't need to kill but he could be a little hardcore I guess...so that leaves us with season three. Season three of Arrow was pretty bad. The big mid-season cliffhanger was Oliver dying... which we all knew wasn't going to happen.

Now, thanks to the token meme explanation video on the net, we finally have some answers. Someday we will get a real reason as to what went wrong, but this doesn't seem that far off! Nice work, Batman (Youtube not the real guy)!

GET HARD Director Etan Cohen to Helm CANNONBALL RUN Remake

Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to the Cannonball Run franchise, and they’ve hired Etan Cohen to write and direct it. Cohen is the writer of Tropic Thunder, and he also directed Get Hard. The studio won’t call this new movie a remake. Instead, they are calling it a relaunch. If they were honest with themselves, though, they know that relaunch basically means remake. Regardless of that, Cohen knows how to do comedy, and I think this would be a great project for him to take on.

The original Cannonball Run film was released in 1981 and had an incredible ensemble cast that included Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Adrienne Barbeau, Dean Martin, Jackie Chan, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dom DeLuise. The story followed a group of contestants who participated in a massive, illegal, cross-country race that stretched from Connecticut to California. It is an incredibly fun movie, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you should check it out! The movie spawned two sequels, one in 1984 and the other in 1989.

There are no details on what the new Cannonball Run movie will be about, but I imagine it will follow the same basic plot as the original. It would also be pretty cool if they managed to bring together a cast of modern popular actors to be involved with it. If done right, this movie could be a blast. Here's the trailer for the original film:
