No Powers, No Magic, Just Murdering: The Full Punisher Trailer!

 

We’ve had small clip after small clip, but today the full official Punisher trailer hit the internet, and we have it for you! We knew this one was going to be violent and it looks like they’ve gone all out to give Frank Castle a modern, gritty look that’s consistent with the current Marvel-Netflix universe. Look forward to our breakdown of this on our next episode, coming out this weekend!

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Brings Back Nick Blood!

Last seen making a tearful exit from the team in season 3, Nick Blood and his character, Lance Hunter, will be back for season 5 of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Originally joining the show as Mockingbird’s (Adrianne Palicki) ex-husband, the mercenary became a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and a show favorite. At the time of his and Palicki’s exit, they were supposed to star in a spin-off called Most Wanted, however ABC never greenlit the property.

Palicki won’t be returning, as she is currently working on the new Seth McFarlane sci-fi satire, The Orville, so Lance Hunter will be coming back alone, which should surely require some explanation. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns later this year and now I’m even more ready for it to come back!

Fox And Marvel Task Drew Goddard With X-Force

When the person responsible for helming the team-ups of the two major comic book live-action universes isn’t available, you go get the next best thing. Fox has made a huge splash by tabbing Drew Goddard as the writer and director of their upcoming X-Force movie. If you’re unfamiliar with Goddard, where have you been? He has been the underrated writing and producing teammate of Joss Whedon for years. The two worked on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and Alias, where Goddard was a writer, as well as Cabin In The Woods, his directorial debut under Whedon’s steady hand as producer.

Other than that, what has Goddard been up to? Oh, just penning the original Cloverfield, World War Z and the Martian, as well as episodes of Lost, Daredevil and the Defenders, meaning he’s also spent plenty of time with JJ Abrams. He was also the executive producer of both Daredevil and Defenders, as well as the NBC hit, The Good Place. In other words, you should start getting pretty confident about the success of X-Force.

To prove he’s the person for the job, Goddard already has the script for X-Force completed and will be ready to go into production at the completion of his current gig, Bad Times at the El Royale, which he’s also writing and directing. Fox hasn’t set a date for the film yet, but has open spots announced for late winter, mid summer and late fall in 2019 and ’20. Look for it to land in there somewhere. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this pick and what it means for Fox and X-Force!

Suicide Squad 2 Finds It’s Writer/Director!

After a search that even included the “kind of” controversial Mel Gibson, the sequel to the *ahem* Academy Award winning, Suicide Squad has found it’s writer and likely director. Variety reports that Gavin O’Connor has been tabbed to helm the film.

Originally expected to begin sooner, shooting should begin in the second half of 2018, thanks to a very busy Will Smith, who has both Aladdin and Gemini to film, before he can climb back into his role as Deadshot, one of the only bright spots from the original.

If you are unfamiliar with O’Connor, you may recognize his work as the director of the very good Ben Affleck vehicle, The Accountant, the sequel to which, O’Connor will direct before he lenses the second Squad movie. Will his getting the job entice Affleck, whom he obviously seemed to work well with, to make another appearance against the team of bad guys drawn together to fight a bigger evil? We’ll have to discuss that on the next podcast!
