Game of Thrones
The end of season 7 is near, and what a season it has been! HBO has released new photos before the season finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf”. It’s going to be a massive episode–80 minutes long, so get the popcorn ready! The season 7 finale of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, August 27.
Now that The Defenders has premiered, Marvel/Netflix is moving to it’s next project–The Punisher. The series brings back Jon Bernthal as vigilante Frank Castle (first seen in the Marvel/Netflix series Daredevil). The first image from the new series has been released, and it features a serious, roughed-up, skull-sigil-suited Punisher. The Punisher will debut on Netflix later this year.
Reports are suggesting a new film focusing on the Joker’s original story is in the works at Warner Bros and DC–and that none other than legendary director Martin Scorsese set as a co-producer! The project is still in the very early stages, but word has it that Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and Scott Silver (8 Mile) are writing the script. No word yet on who might play the famous villain. The idea of the film is said to be a gritty, early-80’s feeling, much like Scorsese’s films from that time (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver). No word on when the film may come out.
Warner Bros will debut a live-action Teen Titans show (titled Titans) on a new digital streaming service sometime next year. A new member of the Teen Titans as just been cast for the show! Anna Diop (24: Legacy) will be alien princess Starfire. She joins fellow actress Teagan Croft, who has been cast as Raven. A specific date has not yet been set for the series release, but it will be coming to television in 2018.
