It seems like fans of Netflix’s The Defenders were treated to another surprise at their San Diego Comic-Con panel in Hall H on Friday. Actor Jon Bernthal surprised the audience during the panel by introducing a clip from his coming Marvel series, The Punisher.

The clip, which was not released publicly, showed a darker side to the Marvel brand. This makes sense since The Punisher kills for vengeance. The character was first introduced in the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil. The Punisher series will take place after Daredevil and explore more of Frank Castle’s life becoming the anti-hero.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the clip was as described.

The teaser starts with a flashback to Frank Castle (Bernthal) and his daughter playing guitar before shifting into new footage of the character in his Punisher persona. First, Frank chases two baddies before gunning them down andr unning them over with his van in rural Alabama. Next, the scene shifts to Juarez, Mexico, where a cartel member is getting intimate with a woman when Punisher snipes him from across the border in El Paso, Texas. It’s this shot that’s rather graphic, as viewers see the man get shot in the head with blood splattering all over the wall behind him. Finally, the scene shifts to Chicago, where Frank kicks in an airport bathroom stall, choking the man inside. Begging for his life, the man tells him it won’t bring his family back, bringing the clip to its end.

The Punisher could possibly be in the upcoming The Defenders series out on August 18.

The Punisher is set to release sometime this year in 2017 on Netflix.

Marvel’s The Punisher Official synopsis:

After the murder of his family, Frank Castle is both haunted and hunted. In the criminal underworld, he’ll become known as The Punisher.

Fans of the Starz hit series Outlander, who attended the Ballroom 20 panel, wee given a surprise of a lifetime. Not only were treated to not just the cast and creatives talking about the upcoming series, but to a special screening of the first episode ‘The Battle Joined’ to the new season.

Moore, author Diana Gabaldon, executive producer Maril Davis, series stars Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser), Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser), Tobias Menzies (Black Jack Randall/Frank Randall), Sophie Skelton (Brianna Randall) and Richard Rankin (Roger Wakefield) were all in attendance for the panel.

Outlander season three Official synopsis:

The third season of “Outlander” picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire’s heart… as well as new doubt. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery, and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: When they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago?

Our homies from the Scrub Care Unit reached out to us to see if we could help spread the word about this.  As you may or may not know, the SCU has been helping ninjas at the Gathering and at shows for years!  They have a request out for the SCU “Handi-Camp Helpers” which consist of ninjas helping keep an eye on the handicap areas and helping those in need.

Instead of rehashing everything that Bob from the SCU sent me, I’ll just paste it below:

I would like to ask for another PSA announcing the SCU “Handi-Camp Helpers”. These super-down ninjas will be standing post and keeping a helpful eye over the handicapped camping area (for those that wish to camp there). They will be asking any that camp in that area if they need a hand setting up a tent, getting an air mattress aired up, or help moving totes to where they need to go for the week.

These volunteers will be in a 10×10 overlooking the designated area from Tuesday (first opening) till Wednesday noon. If, at any time, more help is needed – these folks have the ability to call for support from the SCU main camp (which will be located between the Signature and Autograph tents).

Also – SCU is taking volunteers (need 4 more) for this mission to help our fellow family in need.

Whoop Whoop!!

If you have any questions or are able to help, shoot an email to Bob Adams at bob_adams23@yahoo.com!

The Defenders Comic-Con Interviews - Here's What We Learned

Check out what we learned during the Marvel’s The Defenders Comic-Con interviews

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Kristyn Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter),and Danny Ran/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together. We got a chance to chat with some of the cast at the San Diego Comic-Con, including Cox, Colter, Rand, Elodie Yung (Elektra) Jessica Henwich (Colleen Wing), Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra) and writer Marco Ramirez.

Ramirez told us that Netflix was very open to doing eight episodes as opposed to more like the other series. He also explained what the biggest challenge of the show was. He said, “I think what was really surprising to me and to the writers in the writers room, was planning the specifics about where everyone is emotionally. It’s not like everyone gets in the room and now they’re The Defenders and here they go to the headquarters… it really felt like we had to track emotionally where Luke Cage had been, where Jessica Jones had been, where everyone was coming from… it became a much more emotional grid and map that we had to kind of figure out.”

He also told us about finding a tone for four very different characters and allowing them to mesh. He said, “I think what we knew we didn’t want to make it feel like everyone was visiting Jessica Jones’ world or everyone was visiting Matt Murdoch’s world. We needed to make this a standalone thing, with elements borrowed from each of the other worlds.” He also said it was important to make the characters recognize that this is the next big chapter in their lives on their own before they had them meet.

Yung spoke about where we find Elektra in The Defenders, after being resurrected. She told us, “It was a great idea. I think they were really inspired by the comics. Elektra dies and comes back in a new outfit and she’s changed. It was a really cool and interesting thing for me to have Elektra again, but being completely new character almost, because she doesn’t remember anything. And so exploring kind of a new character was kind of exciting to me… Alexandra takes over this new Elektra and kind of forges her into what she wants her to be if that makes sense.”

Weaver talked about stepping into the Marvel world. “You know, I’d heard of the shows, and I’d heard that they were marvelous with wonderful actors, but I didn’t know them as a New Yorker. There’s so much that it’s hard to keep track. I loved Daredevil and Jessica Jones. I thought they were both wonderful, great acting, wonderful writing. Really, New York is a character in these shows. And I think that continues through Luke Cage and Iron Fist. They approached me about creating a new character. I was excited because, often when they create a new character, an older woman, you know, you’re having to deal with people who — they have an idea that they’re an ice queen or something like that. I just think we all wanted her to be a very believable person in New York, who had a real New York life. Something of a kingdom in New York… unfortunately these four young people who are so idealistic, we don’t have the same priorities. Otherwise I think that she could easily bring them into her organization and mentor them. They’re obviously very talented, but it’s that pesky idealism that they have that complicates things for her.” She said that Alexandra is a business woman and that she’s based on real people she knows.

Jones told us that Danny Rand sees Luke Cage as a mentor. He said, “With that, he can let down his guard, and in letting down his guard, they’re able to have banter and be friendly… For Danny, he hasn’t lived in this world for 15 years. All he’s ever known is to fight. And he’s never actually really considered what it means to be a wealthy person either. And so coming back to New York, he’s very reckless in his behavior. He’s going around and punching things and throwing his cash around. He comes up to someone like Luke Cage, who is the complete opposite, and Luke is like, “Whoah, whoah kid. If we’re going to work together you need to realize a few things. Danny is a pure soul and he takes it on board and says maybe that is the correct way.”

Colter said, “Yeah, the first exchange we had dealt a lot with ways you go about solving problems. When I first meet him, he just happens to have jacked up somebody who I know and care about. So he’s using his abilities because he wants to get to the bottom of something. For me, I’ve dealt with having superior strength for a long time… I’ve known that I’ve had to hold back for a long time because the ramifications; I could kill people. So it’s hard to sort of ride the line of morality… you can’t solve things with violence.”

Cox talked about where we find Matt Murdoch after the events of Daredevil season 2 and the time in between. He told us that he wishes he got to see the conversation between Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) and Matt after the end of season 2. He explained what Matt is dealing with now. “The end of Daredevil season 2, everything failed. Matt failed and the consequences were devastating. I think six or so months have passed and he had to completely evaluate everything that he believes and everything that he does. He’s had to hang up the suit, as it were. He’s focusing all of his energies on being a pro bono lawyer. I don’t think he has any interest in being Daredevil anymore. But what we know about Matt is that it’s like a drug to him. I think whenever Matt is not doing that, his life becomes increasingly uncomfortable.”

Cox told us that his relationship with Jessica Jones is adversarial in the beginning. He said that someone like her dealing with someone who “wears a red pants suit” is entertaining, but that he loves the scenes where they come to respect each other. He also said the fact that he’s the only one with a secret identity was definitely an issue for him.

The series follows the releases of Marvel’s DaredevilMarvel’s Jessica JonesMarvel’s Luke Cage and Marvel’s Iron FistMarvel’s The Defenders stars Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist).
