Those missing their “Mindhunter” fix will be delighted to find another auteur filmmaker tackling the period serial killer genre as excitement builds for TNT’s “The Alienist,” a new series executive produced by Cary Fukunaga and Jakob Verbruggen. A gripping new trailer and poster promises a sensuously chilling drama worthy of the “True Detective” creator.

The Punisher Showrunner Name-Drops Two Major Villains He’d Like To Introduce In Season 2

If Marvel and Netflix decide to push on with a second season of The Punisher, Frank Castle could come face-to-face with two major Marvel villains: Barracuda and Kathryn O’Brien.

At least, that’s according to series showrunner Steve Lightfoot, who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter (via Cbm) about the newly-released Marvel series, its titular anti-hero, and the excessive (?) violence underpinning Frank’s standalone story.

But whereas The Punisher‘s inaugural season thrust our haunted protagonist into the midst of a government conspiracy, it seems Lightfoot wants to extract two major comic book villains in the not-so-distant future – you know, providing season 2 gets the go-ahead from Netflix.

I haven’t even thought about season 2, but one of the villains I love is Barracuda [from Garth Ennis’ Punisher Max series]. I think he’s great fun. I also really like Kathryn O’Brien [also introduced in Ennis’ Punisher Max run]. I thought she was always really cool. Certainly, those two jump out at me initially,

A Novel Idea: Krysten Ritter Looks to Adapt Breakout 'Bonfire'

When Krysten Ritter realized that her percolating idea for a thriller wasn't quite working as a TV pitch, she decided to turn it into a book instead.

Now that the 35-year-old actress' debut novel, introspective thriller Bonfire, published Nov. 7 to raves... her pitch is now infinitely more appealing. "That was kind of the idea," says Ritter, with a laugh. "I have a company [Silent Machine] and I've optioned other people's books. IP helps. People want proven material."

Ritter knows the power of IP well. Titular star of Netflix and Marvel's Jessica Jones (and companion The Defenders), she's part of...

The Punisher Netflix Series: Does It Hit the Target? (Spoilers)

The latest Marvel-based Netflix series came out this week, continuing the adventures of gun-toting vigilante Frank Castle, Aka the Punisher. The character was popular when he appeared in Daredevil. Does the Punisher fare as well in his own series? (Spoilers below.)

The Punisher is the sixth Marvel Netflix series (Following Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and the Defenders) and it’s probably the most controversial, since it deals not only with Ptsd and the treatment of war veterans, it also touches on the gun control debate. Beyond all that, this is an action shoot-em-up. It’s surprisingly dark and violent for a Marvel comics adaptation, but the Netflix shows are quite different from what you’ll see in Thor: Ragnarok.

The Punisher is once again seeking answers to day of the shooting that led to the death of his family. This was dealt with in Daredevil season 2, but it’s expanded upon here,

The Punisher Reviews: Critics Are Split On Marvel/Netflix’s Latest Standalone Series

Not unlike Justice League before it, The Punisher has split critics right down the middle.

Ahead of its arrival this Friday, November 17th, Marvel and Netflix released six episodes prior to broadcast, and the industry’s pool of TV critics have now weighed in with their individual verdicts.

Indeed, it’s difficult to gauge a consensus from what is essentially a mixed bag. For instance, some have hailed The Punisher as a “riveting” and “deeply compelling” take on Frank Castle, while others believe Marvel and Netflix’s latest standalone series fails to justify its 13-hour running time. And though that may be true, one thing that everyone seems to be in agreement on is Jon Bernthal’s remarkable performance as the titular anti-hero, who submerges himself in the criminal underbelly of Hell’s Kitchen in order to avenge his family

And so, in anticipation of release, we’ve collected a

The Punisher Season 1 Review

Six episodes were provided for review.

The Defenders may not have been the high-performer that Netflix hoped it would be (our review here), but nevertheless, its premiere essentially concludes “Phase One” of this branch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, setting the stage for new stories with established characters like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist (all of whom have secured another season). Before any of the Defenders return to the small screen, however, it’s Jon Bernthal’s turn in the spotlight. The Walking Dead alum debuted as Frank Castle in Daredevil season 2 and immediately emerged as a fan favorite. Thus, The Punisher was born.

As a character, The Punisher – created by Gerry Conway, John Romita Sr. and Ross Andru in 1974 – has traditionally been depicted as a sheer force of vengeance. But Castle’s quest for revenge against the criminals who killed his family is all but complete

Kingpin Actor Vincent D’Onofrio Begins Prep Work Ahead Of Daredevil Season 3

Kingpin is officially headed back to Hell’s Kitchen.

As one of the most poised, well-rounded characters on the Daredevil roster, Marvel fans reacted with glee after hearing the news that Vincent D’Onofrio had signed on to reprise as Matt Murdock’s greatest foe – hell, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight even went so far as to suggest that Wilson Fisk deserves his own six-part miniseries.

But before we get swept up in rumors and hearsay, here’s the latest: Vincent D’Onofrio has officially completed his first reading of the script for Daredevil season 3, and took to Twitter (via Cbm) to inform curious fans. The post was accompanied by a dark and rather foreboding image of Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, though it’s unclear if this is an entirely new still image or, in the more likely scenario, one that has been dusted off and pulled from the Marvel archives.

Brian Michael Bendis Leaves Marvel For DC – Here’s Why That Matters
Brian Michael Bendis, the popular and influential comic book writer best known for creating Jessica Jones and acting as one of the vital creative voices at Marvel for the past decade-plus, has joined the opposition. Today, DC Comics announced that they have signed Bendis to an exclusive “multiyear, multi-faceted” deal. This is significant news for comic […]

Brian Michael Bendis Leaves Marvel For DC

While bloodthirsty fanboys will forever continue the DC vs. Marvel debate, the fact of the matter is that there are many of us who enjoy stories released by both publishers. Furthermore, it’s important we not overlook that countless talented writers and artists have switched sides throughout their illustrious careers. Heck, even John Romita Jr. made the jump to DC a few years back.

On that note, another name normally associated with the House of Ideas has made a similar shocking career move. Truth be told, we all figured the day would come when Brian Michael Bendis would write for DC, but we never knew when that’d be.

Well, with a single Tweet that rocked the industry, DC announced that Bendis has signed an exclusive deal with them that’ll span multiple years, thereby allowing the co-creator of characters such as Miles Morales and Jessica Jones access to their pantheon of heroes and villains.

Carey Mulligan to Play Gloria Steinem in Dee Rees’ “An Uncivil War”

Mulligan on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Two years after Carey Mulligan played a burgeoning feminist activist in Sarah Gavron’s women’s rights drama “Suffragette” comes word that she’ll portray one of the most famous feminists of all time. Variety reports that the Oscar-nominated actress will play Gloria Steinem in “An Uncivil War,” a drama that re-teams her with “Mudbound” helmer Dee Rees. Julianne Moore is also portraying Steinem in an upcoming pic, Julie Taymor’s “My Life on the Road.” That’s right — we have two women-directed Steinem-inspired films to look forward to.

Slated for production in March 2018, “An Uncivil War” focuses on “efforts by feminist activist and journalist Steinem, lawyer and activist Florynce Kennedy, and others to ratify the Era, while conservative organizer Phyllis Schlafly advocates against it,” the source details. “The Era was written to guarantee equal rights for all citizens regardless of sex, and although it passed both houses of Congress in 1972 and was submitted to the state legislatures for ratification, it fell short of enactment after receiving 35 of the necessary 38 state ratifications.” Rees has adapted the script, originally penned by David Kukoff (“Campus Confidential”).

FilmNation Entertainment is fully financing “An Uncivil War” and producing along with Peter Heller (“Dreamland”).

Mulligan and Rees’ previous collaboration, “Mudbound,” hits theaters and Netflix November 17. Rees’ critically acclaimed follow-up to “Bessie” scored the biggest deal out of Sundance this January. The multi-perspective Southern epic follows two men as they return home from WWII: Ronsel (Jason Mitchell) and Jamie (Garrett Hedlund). The former is black and the latter is white, and while they bond over their shared experiences abroad, they are welcomed back to very different circumstances in the United States. Mulligan plays Jamie’s sister-in-law.

Rees is signed on to direct an adaptation of Joan Didion’s 1996 best-seller “The Last Thing He Wanted,” a political thriller about a Washington Post journalist who becomes involved in the world of arms dealing.

In 2010 Mulligan received an Oscar nomination for Lone Scherfig’s “An Education.” Her upcoming projects include “On the Other Side,” a drama about the experiences of real-life Vietnam war correspondent Kate Webb, and “Collateral,” a BBC miniseries helmed by S.J. Clarkson (“Jessica Jones”) that’s being described as “a modern-day state of the nation project.”

“The hunger for female-driven stories is there,” Mulligan has told us. “You just have to make the films. This shock over how these films do so well is a bit tired now. Jennifer Lawrence can open movies like any male star.”

Carey Mulligan to Play Gloria Steinem in Dee Rees’ “An Uncivil War” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Marvel’s New Warriors will no longer air on Freeform, being shopped to other outlets

Despite receiving a straight-to-series order from the Disney-owned network, THR is reporting that Marvel’s half-hour comedy series New Warriors will no longer air on Freeform, and is being shopped to other outlets.

According to the site, the New Warriors pilot “is said to have tested through the roof and caught the attention of high-level Disney executives”. However, Freeform – which is set to air another Marvel series, Cloak & Dagger – was unable to find a slot for the series next year, prompting Marvel to ask for it back to seek an alternative home.

The site goes on to report that Marvel may no longer be allowed to sell to non-Disney companies such as Netflix, where it has Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Defenders and The Punisher, prompting speculation that it may find itself on Disney’s upcoming streaming service.

Jessica Henwick Returns To Training As Iron Fist Season 2 Looms

Having spent so long twiddling his thumbs in the shadows of Hell’s Kitchen, The Punisher has officially placed his crosshairs on a November 17th premiere date, meaning Frank Castle is the man of the hour within Marvel and Netflix’s camp.

But in the fallout of The Defenders, which undershot all expectations to become one of Netflix’s least-watched superhero series, the online streamer is now making preparations for a brand new batch of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

Filming on Jessica Jones season 2 has already wrapped, and though David Tennant’s mind-bending villain was sent to meet his maker back in 2016, it’s since been confirmed that Kilgrave will continue to haunt the fractured mind of Jessica next year. Elsewhere, Daredevil recently welcomed the return of Wilson Fisk (Aka Kingpin), while the second season of Luke Cage will feature an upgraded version of Misty Knight.

Vincent D’Onofrio returning as Kingpin in Daredevil Season 3, new showrunner announced

When Daredevil returns for its third season, it will see the return of the show’s first villain as Vincent D’Onofrio will be returning for a regular role as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. The Kingpin.

“Vincent is an exceptional actor who returns with the incredible gravitas he brings to Fisk,” Daredevil‘s executive producer and head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb said in a statement.

In addition to D’Onofrio’s return is the news Daredevil is gaining a new showrunner. Erik Oleson, who has worked on Kings, The Man in the High Castle and written several episodes for Arrow, is taking over as showrunner for the third season. He’s replacing Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, both of whom acted as showrunners on Daredevil‘s second season. This isn’t the first time the show has changed showrunners, though, as that duo replaced Steven S. DeKnight from the first season.
