Let’s start off with some casting news shall we? (Thanks to Hypersonic55 for the image by the way)
Netflix Casts The Punisher!
Jon Bernthal formally known as Shane from AMC’s The Walking Dead will now be Frank Castle in Netflix’s Daredevil. After two failed Punisher movies I guess the Disney execs think maybe TV is the right place for the man who wants to kill the mob. I liked Tom Jane as The Punisher, but his movie was terrible, and I think Jon will do a good job. He should be an excellent counterpoint to the anti-killing hero Daredevil. We will also get to see some good bullets versus ninja action!
DC/Warner Brother Drops The Batman V Superman Synopsis!
With Batman V Superman about nine months away DC thought the time was right to drop the plot synopsis for the flick. It is pretty much what we thought, but here you go anyway!
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Like I said, it is pretty much what everyone was expecting. The question is how long will they fight each other before teaming up?
First Justice League: Gods and Monsters Short Released!
Bruce Timm said Justice League: Gods and Monsters was going to be dark, but I wasn’t prepared for how dark. This is quite the trip down the rabbit hole, but it is interesting, and it does live up to its title: Twisted. Have a look for yourself:
It is not the cartoon we are used to that is for sure, but it is kind of a fun take. We will see how it pans out over the next few episodes before the movie launches.
That is my comic book media roundup. Is there anything you think I should have talked about? Let me know!
