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 […]

What Cloak & Dagger Needs (To Do) To Succeed

Marvel Television, unlike their stablemates at Marvel Studios are very hit and miss as far as translating their characters goes.

Marvel’s The Defenders – Official Trailer 

‘You look like an idiot,’  said Jessica Jones, as she and Matt Murdock walked down the immaculately white hallway, their very gait daring anyone to get in their way.
