It’s been an interesting few weeks for the live action versions of various comics characters. Rather than do several small articles, I’m just going to do a round up of some of the big points here.
Punisher: After the success of Daredevil’s second season, Netflix has announced a Punisher series. There are rumors that the Punisher may turn up in the Defenders. There are also rumors that the Netflix characters may pop up in cameos during Avengers: Infinity War, but I’m not sure I buy that. It already sounds like a crowded movie.
DC Loses Directors: Following the largely negative reviews of Batman vs. Superman, there were various shockwaves among the projects coming up. It has been confirmed that Seth Grahame-Smith has left the Flash movie. There are rumors that James Wan has walked away from the Aquaman movie, but this hasn’t been confirmed. Personally, I still think that making the DC movies and tv shows separate is a bad choice, but that’s me.
Inhumans: Rumors abound that the Inhumans movie has been cancelled. There are even more rumors as to why this may be so. While this has not been confirmed, what is true is that the movie no longer has an official release date.
