The Punisher: Season Two – Teaser Trailer

With a second season of Marvel’s The Punisher (as well as a third of Jessica Jones) coming I’m mildly apprehensive about it’s chances. Not because of issues of watchability–though all the Marvel series on Netflix tend to run three episodes too many–but because of what from the outside looks like some sort of power struggle […]

Too Much Of A Good Thing

Take this with a shaker of salt, but according to Josh Wilding at Comicbookmovie, part of the reason Netflix has cancelled Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil has less to do with ratings than it does with the fact that Netflix wanted to decrease the length of a season.
