Sweet Virginia was just one of two Jon Bernthal films to premiere at the Tribeca Film festival. Unlike Pilgrimage, Bernthal’s suspense thriller had not yet been picked up by a major film studio. Which, was terrible news considering those who went to the film festival gave the movie rave reviews. Who doesn’t want to see more Jon Bernthal on their screens?
If you loved Get Out (how could you not?), you’ll want to watch some of Daniel Kaluuya’s past work. The twenty-seven English actor is just starting his career, but he’s been involved in some big named projects already. He’s been in the well-known series Skins and Black Mirror and I can imagine that Get Out is going to catapult him into being a household name; especially since he also will be in the highly anticipated upcoming Black Panther movie.
My introduction to Kaluuya was in the 2015 film Sicario. The drama stars Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt, and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt plays an FBI agent who gets recruited to join the CIA on a mission to take down a well-known drug cartel leader. Kaluuya plays her partner/only friend/mother figure.
The Walking Dead and The Punisher star Jon Bernthal is known for playing badass characters. From Shane Walsh, to Frank Castle and his roles in other films such as Fury and The Accountant, Bernthal usually is the guy with the less than reputable morals. Yesterday, the trailer for his latest project Pilgrimage dropped and Bernthal has gone Medieval.
If you’ve been on Twitter or Instagram recently, you’ve probably seen a Punisher poster that was so bad-ass it had to be real. The Punisher costars Ben Barnes and Deborah Ann Woll even promoted the bullet-riddled poster, which led many to speculate it was legitimate.
As awesome as that poster is, it’s in fact, fan-made. Giuseppe Spinelli is a digital artist from Italy and is the genius behind this awesome gift. Regardless if it’s real or not, it’s more than appropriate for Frank Castle and definitely hyped up the fan-base. We aren’t sure when The Punisher will exactly be released on Netflix, but at least we know it’s going to premiere in 2017.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s that awesome poster I keep talking about. Make sure to check out Giuseppe Spinelli’s Twitter page. Hopefully, Marvel/The Punisher sees because it’s definitely the perfect artwork for the show.
Ever since Jon Bernthal premiered as anti-hero Frank Castle in the second season of Daredevil, I’ve been a fan. When I heard there was going to be a series on Netflix for The Punisher, I was even more pumped. Jon Bernthal, Deborah Ann Woll, and others have been spotted in New York City filming for the new show the past few months. Though there is no specific release date, people surmise it will be sometime in the fall of 2017.
Unfortunately, the new pictures are from Getty and due to legality issues, I cannot post them directly to this page. But, please go take a look here for some Frank Castle goodness. If you do click this link, you can see a familiar Frank; that is a beat up Frank. In Daredevil Season 2, the Punisher sported gnarly looking bruises most of the time we saw him. I was getting worried with all previous The Punisher set photos when he wasn’t scuffed up.
Hopefully, we’ll get a release date soon. Since they are still filming, a relate date may not be announced for some time now. Either way, it is definitely my most anticipated Netflix Marvel show. Of course, we have The Defenders coming out this summer and keep your fingers crossed that we get a Frank Castle cameo.
The Punisher series will star Jon Bernthal, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and many more!
