Well, now we finally know that November 17 will see the debut of Frank Castle’s spin-off series on Netflix when actor John Bernthal reprises the character he redeemed in Daredevil‘s second season on Netflix.

All episodes will be available to stream on November 17th.

Game Review: Forma.8

What it is: A side-scrolling action adventure from MixedBag Srl. The game released August 24th on Switch for $9.99. This game feels like a spinoff of the movie Wall-E.  A robot probe exploring a virtually uninhabited planet is a cool concept, even if gameplay does drag at times (at least compared to other games out there) …

This New Trailer for Marvel’s “Black Panther” Proves Feige and Co. Still Have a Few Tricks Up Their Sleeves

Holy Shit! That’s all I can really say after watching the latest trailer for Black Panther. Last week, Jimmy Kimmel announced that Thor: Ragnarok is possibly Marvel’s best film to date, but that was before this trailer came out.  The soundtrack, the action, the narrative showcased here do exactly what they’re meant to: make you crave this …
