Netflix Releases Bloody Full-Length Trailer for “Marvel’s The Punisher”

Set to the song “One” by Metallica, Netflix has unleashed a high-octane trailer for their next series in partnership with Marvel Studios. Marvel’s The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, betrayed soldier turned lethal vigilante, and the series looks to be perhaps the most violent, dark and adult series the Marvel/Netflix partnership has yet to produce. After Bernthal appeared as Castle in season 2 of “Daredevil” to great acclaim, Marvel and Netflix were quick…

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders – Season 1, Episodes 7 & 8

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders – Season 1, Episodes 7 & 8

And so, Marvel’s The Defenders reaches its climax. We’re going to look at the final two episodes via a single review, being as they are basically one big episode that serves to tie up the loose ends of the miniseries. Or, rather, they should do that. Unfortunately, while there are some pleasures to the finale of The Defenders, ultimately this culmination of the first era of Marvel‘s Netflix shows is too uneven, and at its…

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders, Season 1, Episode 6: “Ashes Ashes”

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders,  Season 1, Episode 6: “Ashes Ashes”

The sixth episode of Marvel’s The Defenders bounces back from its lacklustre previous episode by retuning its focus squarely on the dynamics of the titular team of loners and misfits at the center of the story. Splitting its attentions into a series of partnerships (Luke/Danny, Jessica/Matt, Alexandra/Elektra) “Ashes Ashes” fleshes out the interpersonal stories of the characters but never forgets to advance the plot into darker and more dangerous territories. The result is a satisfying…

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders, Season 1, Episode 5: “Take Shelter”

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders,  Season 1, Episode 5: “Take Shelter”

The fifth episode of Marvel’s The Defenders tries gamely to recapture the high-energy action after the more restrained previous episode, but unfortunately winds up being an uneven affair that seesaws between solid action moments and lacklustre drama. It’s about time to finally admit that, for the most part, the Marvel/Netflix shows don’t really understand what makes the Hand interesting. They first popped up in the 1980s during Frank Miller’s time as an artist on “Daredevil”…

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders – Season 1, Episode 4: “Royal Dragon”

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders – Season 1, Episode 4: “Royal Dragon”

After a stellar and action-packed third episode that delivered our first look at the eponymous team united, this fourth chapter in the first season of Marvel’s The Defenders down-shifts considerably into an exposition-heavy bottle episode. And though it’s a bit of a come down after the thrills of the last episode, “Royal Dragon” has considerable rewards in how it further cements the differences and similarities between the Defenders themselves. This, plus the still witty banter…

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders – Season 1, Episode 3: “Worst Behavior”

REVIEW: Marvel’s The Defenders – Season 1, Episode 3: “Worst Behavior”

With its third episode, Marvel’s The Defenders brings all of its heroes together, expands on the schemes and philosophies of its main villain, and delivers all the slam-bang, thrilling action its concept promises. The result is the best episode so far, and one that should thrill and satisfy any fans of these characters or super-heroes in general. The episode opens with a suitably spooky and engrossing (and only slightly silly) flashback which sees Alexandra (Sigourney…
