Prepping for the New Punisher – Geek Girl Navigating the World Prepping for the New Punisher

29 January 2016 5:01 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I’ve been a fan of the Punisher since Archie comics did a lame crossover one-shot forever and a day ago. The brief and, let’s admit it, watered-down for the teeny-bopper set, introduction stuck with me. I was old enough to realize there was a whole lot about Frank Castle Archie Comics wasn’t going to tell me, but young enough not to resent his intrusion into the placid cheese of Riverdale.

As far as mash-ups go, the comic, of which I have two of the variant covers, it was a standard issue bad guy interrupting the big dance action setup where nobody got killed because this was the Punisher it was okay for your mom to spare a casual glance towards. I’m not saying I’m proud of it, but I’m being honest about my start.

Comics-wise, the Punisher is probably one of the less politically »

Lexi Alexander Reflects On Directing Punisher: War Zone; "Everything That Was B-Movie-Ish Was A Deliberate Choice"

27 January 2016 2:15 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It may not have been a masterpiece, but Punisher: War Zone did a great job bringing Frank Castle to the big screen in a way which reflected his portrayal in the comic books. While Thomas Jane remains a fan-favourite version of the character, I for one have always preferred Ray Stevenson, and Lexi Alexander brought a lot to the table with the movie (despite it not being a critical or commercial hit). In the video below, the filmmaker - who will soon turn her sights to Supergirl - weighs in on the experience of making Punisher: War Zone and the reception it subsequently received from fans.   I like it. The other day somebody put a clip up -- the famous parkour grenade shooting -- and here's the thing: This was the time people started getting $300 million to make [comic book movies]. I think [Christopher] Nolan was just making the second "Dark Knight" -- we heard $300 million, »

The Veil Review

25 January 2016 3:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’ve always thought that Thomas Jane deserved more frequent zany roles, which The Veil certainly provides for him – it’s just a shame his twisted charisma will most likely go unnoticed. Phil Joanou’s cultish thriller (penned by Robert Ben Garant) is the latest Blumhouse indie to be unceremoniously dumped straight to Netflix, like last year’s backlog purge that included Mockingbird, Mercy, and a few other buried thrillers. But it’s not without reason, as questions of quality are answered within the film’s dreary first few scenes, even with Jessica Alba leading the show. Spiffy cultist ideas shine through, mixed with a supernatural story, but Joanou’s vision is the blandest shade of grey imaginable – or, in this case, visibly seen as a color-blocking filter in every shot.

Abla plays a filmmaker named Maggie Price, who returns to where her FBI agent father stumbled upon the largest mass-suicide in history, »

Lift The Veil and Stare into the Abyss: A Film Review

22 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Phil Joanou. Writer: Robert Ben Garant. Cast: Jessica Alba, Thomas Jane, Lily Rabe and Shannon Woodward. The Veil is a haunted story, from Blumhouse Productions. The film takes place inside a Jim Jones' cult. But, in this film, there is life after suicide. Thomas Jane (The Punisher) plays Jim Jacobs, the cult leader. Jessica Alba (The Eye) plays a documentarian, in search of closure. A creepy cabin invites viewers into a horrifying time, while the film offers at least two decent jump scares. As well, Jane provides a great performance as the curtain falls on many of the characters. In the end, The Veil is a decent horror film, which draws viewers into its growing darkness. The setting focuses on a small, dilapidated cabin. This type of setting has been used many times before, in horror. This time, in this remote locale, the characters try to piece together »

Last week, a report surfaced that revealed The CW's upcoming superhero series DC's Legends of Tomorrow will be bringing in iconic DC Comics character Jonah Hex into the series.

Here's an official description of Jonah Hex on the new series.

If you're currently enjoying Syfy's ambitious new original series The Expanse starring Thomas Jane and Steven Strait on TV then you'll be happy to hear that the first season's home video plans include Blu-ray and Digital HD with a release date not too far off.

Syfy and Universal Studios Home Entertainment have set The Expanse: Season One Blu-ray and Digital HD combo pack release date, as well as DVD, for April 5th. The Blu-ray combo pack will span three discs and naturally include every episode from the currently airing first season.

Details are sketchy at this time as any bonus features have yet to be announced and are likely still being produced. I can report that the audio track will be presented in 5.1 DTS-hd Master Audio and the cover art is fittingly explosive as seen below, just like the series is.

When DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs its series premiere on The CW Thursday, January 19, fans will be introduced to plenty of familiar faces from Arrow and The Flash, along with a slew of new characters from the DC Comics. We already got our first look at some of these fresh faces like Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), Jax Jackson (Franz Drameh) and Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in the Arrow & Flash crossover from last month, but fans will also be introduced to another iconic comic book figure later this season: Jonah Hex. Here's what executive producer Marc Guggenheim had to say about bringing on Jonah Hex, in a statement to Variety.

Jonah Hex Coming To DC's "Legends"

12 January 2016 9:28 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite the awkward failure of the "Jonah Hex" movie a few years ago, The CW's upcoming "Arrow" and "The Flash" spin-off series "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" will include the iconic antihero western character.

EW reports that Hex, a legendary Civil War veteran-turned-bounty hunter with his own moral code and a horribly disfigured face, will first appear in the eleventh episode of the series with the option to recur. No word on who has been cast in the role at this point.

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim says: "Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West. But if you're going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply must include Jonah Hex in it.

Telltale’s Batman: 10 Comic Stories That Would Be Great Inspiration

5 January 2016 4:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Telltale

Telltale seem to have every licence under the sun these days, ranging from adaptions from the Fables series of comics to Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones and more. 2016 will see the studio taking on Batman of all characters as well, which is not without its own gargantuan expectations.

Indeed, with the studio working on so many different titles simultaneously, it’s a wonder they haven’t managed to crumble under their own weight. However, out of all their choices yet, The Dark Knight feels the most befitting of a point and click narrative.

After all, the character has an iconic 75 year history to boast of, and that brings with it a whole host of source material for developers to mess around with and take inspiration from – hopefully more effectively than in the Caped Crusader’s most recent video game adventure. A point and click tale brings with it a slower pace, »

Syfy’s ambitious space opera The Expanse has been renewed for a second season, expected in 2017…

Here’s a brief but exciting update on Syfy’s ambitious series The Expanse. The network, we’re pleased to report, has ordered a second season of the show.

If you’re unfamiliar, The Expanse is based on James S.A. Correy’s novel series of the same name. It’s set 200 years in he future, following a central trio of characters (played by Thomas Jane, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Steven Strait) as they uncover a conspiracy of galactic proportions.

So far, season one has offered an enjoyable space opera covering the lives of these three characters – a detective, a politician and a freighter worker, respectively – each doing their bit to unearth what’s really going on behind the scenes in this somewhat dystopian future.
