First we were told we’d be getting to see The Punisher as a supporting character (played by Jon Bernthal) in Daredevil‘s second season, premiering Friday, March 18th.

Although kind of overshadowed by the relative newness of Jessica Jones, let’s not forget about the show that started this new era of Marvel TV on Netflix: Daredevil. The new year will see a new season of the Man Without Fear on the streaming service, and it will see some well-known faces from Marvel Comics join the show as Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) quests to clean-up post-alien attack Hell’s Kitchen, which has become a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Now, with three days left till 2016, we’re bring given a good long look at Frank “The Punisher” Castle (Jon Bernthal), and Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung) in the new season of Daredevil. (more…)

We’ve had Daredevil and season two is coming, Jessica Jones will be available to stream in a couple of weeks, and Luke Cage is now cast and ready for production. But aren’t we missing one? There were four superhero series that Marvel Studios agreed to produce for Netflix, plus the Defenders miniseries that would combine those four heroes into one team. As you may have noticed though, there’s been precious little news about Iron Fist, like who will play him, or even who’s running the show, and now, there’s a rumor out there that there will be no Iron Fist. Instead, for the fourth member of the Defenders, get ready to be punished. (more…)

Sometimes for actors, a job is just a job. And sometimes, part of that job requires you to go out and tell the media how pumped you are to have that job.  Do all actors mean it when they say that they are “thrilled” to be playing a certain role?
