  1. Hell yes. Daredevil season 2 was the entire Punisher origin story and in that season netflix pulled off some of the most realistic gun fights I've seen in any movie / tv series. Sure movies have gun fights all the time, but for assault weapons, shotguns, etc. its all special effects and nothing physical. In daredevil season 2 it felt like they were literally shooting guns everywhere and each individual bullet hole was shown being created in the background as it happened. As long as the punisher series has that much detail this will be amazing. It better have that much detail because netflix needs another strong marvel series. Iron Fist and Defenders were horrible compared to their predecessors.
  2. This is noticeably a marvel made Spider-Man movie and looks far superior to the previous movies Fox has made.
  3. ohhhh.. Asgard has fallen? wtf?
  4. Looks like Marvel got a little inspiration from "Inception". I like what I'm seeing tho.
  5. It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.
  6. This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf. I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.
  7. http://marvel.com/news/tv/26104/netflix_orders_marvels_the_punisher_to_series?linkId=23992378 The Punisher was the best part of Daredevil season 2. I'm glad we're getting a series dedicated to him but they better kick the annoying 'crying woman' character he was constantly paired up with in Daredevil to the curb.
  8. I finished Daredevil season 2 on netflix yesterday and I have some mixed feelings about it. Overall I enjoyed it and I'll watch a season 3, but I'd rather watch a dedicated Punisher series instead. Daredevil is that typical superhero that doesn't want to kill anyone and always interrupts everyone else's sense of justice to impose his own choices onto them and thats basically what got me annoyed more than anything with Daredevil. Hes also supposed to be a catholic (which isn't a major plot line at all), and it feels like thats his motivation to impose his sense of morality onto others. eh. But with as dull as Daredevil's character is with whats right and wrong in crime fighting, the Punisher makes up for it. Season 2 was basically an origin story for the Punisher and I hope he gets his own spin off series. He was incredibly brutal. In his endless fights, he gets his face bashed enough times that its hard to tell hes the same guy that played Shane from TWD. But he did such a good job at his character that I'll easily remember him more as Punisher now than Shane. Elektra was also a good character except for some plot twists that seemed very rushed at the end of the season. The downside to season 2 was all the courtroom / lawyer crap. They dedicated about 1/3 of the season to a trial. Sure, Daredevil is a lawyer but I don't want to see his day job, even if it does slightly tie into the the overall plot. They could have cut that trial down to 1 episode and had more action instead of treating it like a main plot with Daredevil doing some random fighting as a side mission in those eps. Boring. Clark Kent is a reporter and Peter Parker is a photographer but I'll be damned if I ever had to sit through 4 episodes worth of Clark Kent reporting on an oil spill or interviewing politicians. Or watching Peter Parker set up that perfect panoramic shot for an art magazine commission. wtf. I'm watching a superhero show to see ass kicking. Just like I wouldn't watch Tony Stark have a board meeting for 1/3 of an Iron Man movie, I don't want to see a court drama in Daredevil. Also, that character Karen Page was incredibly annoying. Shes all happy go lucky, and completely ignorant. Its like the director wanted to jam her into every scene they possibly could regardless of plausibility, just to get her in there to remind you that the things the punisher was doing was actually bad. How she lived thru so many different scenarios makes her unbelievable as a character. She was the equivilant of the "good angel / devil" on the shoulder and all I'll remember her for is crying all the time or looking smug. She'd have been a much better side character with less screen time. x_x Even with its shortcomings, I enjoyed the series. One last thing, there was one scene where the Punisher shoots this guy in the face with a shotgun and holy crap that looked believable. jebus.. made me shocked for a second. The guy's head should have blown out in the back, but still. This season had the most believable gun / bullet physics I've seen in any show. It literally looked like bullets were hitting walls and swiss cheesing people. If someone was getting shot at, you'd see the bullet holes in the walls and not just see some spark where a bullet hit metal. Their special effects ppl did a great job with that.
  9. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/avengers-age-ultron-james-spader-617510 This amazes me.. Avengers 2 will have Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch.. the children of Magneto.. but the movie will never have Magneto because he is part of the X-Men movie license that Marvel doesn't have direct control over. If Ultron is presented like he was in the Avengers animated series or any animated Marvel movie he was a part of.. then this sequel could be pretty epic.
  10. Ehhh... I'm so sick of the reboot origin story movies. And it doesn't look as good as the previous two Fantastic Four movies either.
  11. Here is the newest trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy!
  12. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lVH3ogPE0w This movie seems more promising now.
  13. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTZ2Tp9yXyM This is no Avengers group, but I'm sure it will be highly entertaining and fun.

  15. The trailer doesn't show anything about the show except for its animation style. It could be good, but if its anything like Ultimate Spider-Man, I won't bother watching it.
  16. This movie looks far better than the previous X-Men movies Fox has made. They should have started off with Sentinels in the first movie. I'm glad they're finally making a decent X-Men movie, but I wish Fox would just sell the property back to Marvel. Two things that throw me off in this trailer.. the sentinels look cool at first, but they seem to lack a lot of detail. Also.. Quicksilver is in this movie and he will also be in the new Avengers 2 movie. Maybe Fox leased Quicksilver from Marvel? I'm very surprised to see the same character will be used in different movies.
  17. Is it just me, or are they making this movie to retcon how the original movies ended?

  19. Is anyone else watching this show? This is honestly my favorite series now. The way it ties into the Marvel movies is huge.. I have not seen Captain America The Winter Soldier, but I have a basic idea as to what happened in that movie because it drastically changed the direction this show was taking. Hydra has infiltrated SHIELD in the highest levels, Fury is presumed dead and SHIELD is now classified as a terrorist organization. The very week after Captain America 2 hit the theaters, it completely changed this show for the better. I'm really looking forward to the next episode to see what happens at the hidden base. Whoever is left of SHIELD's agents needs to regroup and re-establish themselves.
