TEASER: The PUNISHER (Netflix)

The Marvel Netflix series' are dark, gritty, and as grounded in reality as series can be that focus on super-powered individuals. It's really epic, and if you've not gotten into it just yet, you have a lot to catch up on!

The culmination of the 4 individual series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) was released by Netflix recently and so far, it's great! In that same universe is our violent friend, the Punisher. His stint in the Daredevil series was gory and bloody but his development as a character was well done, he will now get his own series, and looking at the teaser trailer for it that was dropped recently, it looks like it's going to be a bloody-good mess! I can't wait!

GAME TRAILER: Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite

Lately Capcom have been doing some great work with their fighting games, and I've been a fan of their crossovers ever since the first Marvel Vs Capcom many moons ago, and their latest offering is the MCU-heavy Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite.



With no X-men in sight, it panders heavily to MCU fans but obviously there is also the pesky licencing issue, so that makes sense. Regardless, its roster is absolutely jam-packed with so many cool characters. It doesn't look nearly as good as Injustice, of course, but it looks like a solid, all-out fun-fest. I'd love to get my hands on it to try out all the cool new faces and many old ones too! Check out the story mode trailer below!

FILM: Guardians on Blu Ray...

I love Guardians.

Most people do.

But just when you thought nothing could top the awesomeness of Guardians Vol One and GOTG Vol 2, they do this to release their Blu-Ray DVD. I love it.

It's a music video featuring the HOFF. You can't go wrong with a HOFF feature.

Marvel Posters

There are so many cool Marvel movies coming out in the next few years, and I've found some cool posters to share with you all!

The concept artists and designers who work on these films work so hard and go through 100s, sometimes 1000s of different drafts and versions of the characters and storyboards of the scenes. They are the unsung heroes of it all! Here are some posters for you to enjoy, made by guys and gals that work really hard on bringing our comic book heroes to life!

SHORT: Gummy Gas Crisis

Here's a nice random tidbit for your Friday

This short oozes nostalgia as it's old-timey gaming looks and sounds take you back to a bygone time. It's really, really well done and it's one of those animation shorts that look good on every freeze frame!

Enjoy!

TRAILER: The Defenders

A lot of people go on and say Mmm, DC is more realistic and grittier than Marvel, now although I'm a fan of both, I love Marvel just a litttttle more because of how they build universes. The Marvel Netflix universe is darker and grittier than DC could ever hope to be in modern times in any movie/series format and they've built up quite a cool universe out of the four main heroes, and I quite frankly can't wait for the Defenders series!

Iron Fist aside, all the other Netflix Marvel Heroes had very, very good solo series, so it's gonna be so cool to see them battling alongside each other against a new foe!

Check out the new trailer for the Defenders series here!
