Daredevil Returns

In a year where we get to see Batman v Superman and Captain America v Iron Man, Netflix is also giving us Daredevil v The Punisher.




This week saw the release of the first proper trailer for Daredevil Season 2 which will be available on Netflix from 18th March. Daredevil it seems is still fighting to save Hell's Kitchen and its residents from the criminals that emerged in the wake of the Battle of New York. Only there's a new player in the game, Frank Castle A.K.A. The Punisher (Jon Bernthal). The problem is they don't exactly see eye to eye, The Punisher sees Daredevil as weak because he doesn't kill the criminals he hunts.


Frank Castle, a military veteran, is the victim of a brutal crime; his family has been murdered and he wants to 'punish' those responsible. It appears in the trailer that Castle is leaving a trail of destruction across the city in an effort to accomplish his mission. This obviously draws the attention of well...everybody. From law enforcement and the media, to Daredevil and the criminals. Whereas Daredevil is trying to help his community, Castle is angry and is inflicting that anger and his military skills on the criminal
underworld, obviously his tactics bring him into conflict with Daredevil. My question is this; is he looking to punish any and all criminals or is he just interested in finding those responsible for killing his family. Punisher is being portrayed by Jon Bernthal who is known for Fury, The Walking Dead and Mob City. With roles like this under his belt he is more than capable of showing the pain and anger that Punisher feels.


Season 2 will see the return of Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) and Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) as well
as the first appearance of Elektra Natchios (pictured right). All that we know of Elektra is that she's Murdoch's college flame. It's rumoured that Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) may make an appearance but this is unconfirmed, Jones like Daredevil exists in the extended Marvel universe, Claire Temple was the first character to appear in both shows.


All 13 episodes of Daredevil Season 2 will be made available on Netflix on Friday 18th March.

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 | Moustache Reaction

If you weren't excited about Blade Runner 2049 before, you certainly should be now. The longest and most informative of the three shorts, Black Out 2022 tells the story of a major event that had global consequences.
The roll out of the Nexus 8 - a new replicant with full human lifespans - saw the rise of human supremacy movements. These groups used the Replicant Registration database to identify and kill replicants. In response, a group of replicants sought to destroy the records, their actions led to the prohibition of their kind causing many to go into hiding.
Black Out 2022 is a brilliant piece of filmmaking! Not only is it well written, but the use of multiple animation styles make it both visually stunning and perfectly grounded in the Blade Runner universe. This spectacular short is a perfect bridge between Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049.
Don't forget to check out the other two Blade Runner 2049 shorts:
