Earlier this week, Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland stopped by the New York Daily News to talk about their upcoming MCU debuts as The Punisher and Spiderman.

Bernthal went on to tell the Daily News how he met Holland on set for the period drama Pilgrimage.  It didn’t take long for the pair to start helping one another make audition tapes, Holland vying for the role of Spiderman, and Bernthal for Punisher.  The Daily News also reports that Holland called on some divine intervention in the form of Chris Helmsworth (who Holland worked with during Heart of the Sea).  Executives heeded the God of Thunder, landing Holland in a pair of brightly colored Underoos.

According to sources interviewed by the Daily News fans shouldn’t hold their breath in anticipation of a clash between these two Marvel titans, so instead, make sure to load up Netflix on March 18th and catch season 2 of Daredevil!

Avengers Assemble on Stage Left: Marvel Universe Live! Comes to PPL Center in Allentown This Weekend

This weekend, the Lehigh Valley area will have a special treat at the PPL Center as the Hulk, Captain America, and several other Marvel heroes go toe to toe against the likes of Loki and Doctor Octopus in this INSANE stadium event.

Audiences can expect this show to run for about two hours (two acts with a 15 minute intermission in between) with tickets running anywhere from $20-$90 per seat. Live! also boasts an original story (though a bit linear) where the characters fight for control over the “Cosmic Cube” that threatens to destroy the entire Universe. Arial acrobatics are to be expected, alongside explosions, car chases, fight scenes and sweet Motocross tricks from previous X Games athletes.

Seven-time North American Women’s Trials Champion, Louise Forsley, joins the cast as Black Widow alongside Shakespearean actor Evans-Gan who plays The Hulk. This diversely talented bunch brings all their different acting strengths and talents to provide one hell of a show – so expect the little ones in the audience to lose their minds.

You can get your tickets at www.PPLCenter.com or call: 610-347-TIXX for more information.

Netflix Reveals Daredevil Season 2 at NYCC and I Can’t Handle My Feels Right Now.

Ever since Daredevil released on Netflix last year, I have been LOSING MY MIND waiting to hear more news about “The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.”  Well the wait is over, Illuminati confirmed, we got Elektra.  Let me repeat, WE NOW HAVE ELEKTRA.

As if having my favorite Sai wielding assassin wasn’t enough, crew members from the Daredevil set have nicknamed this season “Daredevil Vs. Punisher” which can mean only one thing…

It’s no news that Season 2 will be featuring Marvel’s favorite gun toting vigilante (who will be played by Joe Bernthal of The Walking Dead fame) but the rumor mill has been grinding away since last May with supposed leaked audition footage for the role of Elektra.  At their NYCC panel this past Saturday, Netflix finally dropped the bomb, and the role of Elektra Natchios will be played by Elodie Yung.

But wait, the Daredevil party train doesn’t stop there. The lovely Rosario Dawson has also been confirmed to reprise her role as Night Nurse in Season 2, and that role could soon be expanding into the other Defenders series, AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

This is going to be awesome.
