My. Word.


It's still coming on 2017, so the exact date doesn't matter too much at this point. Either way... SOON!

I wonder if Netflix is just going to randomly drop this one day without any advance warning.

I cannot adequately Express how amazing that trailer is and how effectively that Metallica song is used.

I'm just so happy right now I could spit.

Johnny got his gun indeed

I've seen people predicting November 10th, for Veterans Day. I think that would be really cool.

I really think they'd steer clear of the controversy... I don't know that all veterans appreciate being honored with a series about stone cold vigilante justice and killing in the streets.

I was thinking the same thing. Some vets might not appreciate a series about how the government screwed a soldier over and killed his wife and kids...

Really? Every one I know in the Marine Corps LOVES Punisher. I see a lot of people in the service rocking the skull in some way or another.

And we saw how Marvel folded like a leaf in the wind after the "Oh no, evil Asians! Marvel hates Asian people!" flak they got after Daredevil season 2, making the evil Japanese ninja clan suddenly as culturally diverse as can be with no more Japanese in it in everything afterward. They aren't looking to ruffle any feathers.

Yeah, they're not great at fixing problems they've made.

Huh, that never showed up on my radar. But I believe it. They sucked, and the Japanese guy who was supposed to be Nobu's boss was a boring vanilla chump.

And here it was, the big everyone vs. the evil Japanese ninja clan... and there isn't one scene with the Defenders fighting any ninjas. The ending of Daredevil S1 sold us a lie.

For shame.

They seem to be really good at creating new, real problems borne out of imaginary ones.

And it's weird.

SJWs/rabble-rousers: "Marvel is depicting too many Japanese as evil in the evil Japanese ninja clan! Marvel hates Asians and especially the Japanese!"
Marvel: "OK, we're not going to use any more Japanese."

Who really wins here? Certainly not Japanese actors. White actors, I guess? 80% of the Hand were all recast as white guys in Iron Fist and Defenders.

My biggest gripe with Defenders, none of The Hand was wearing typical ninja garbs that's iconic for The Hand.

But I guess it can be chalked down to only Nobu's division was dogi wearers 4unlyfe since the MCU Hand was bigger and wide spread then "just" a ninja clan

This is where we disagree.
The issue on the table is a real issue, but rather than add more they've taken away.

But I bet that was an idea they manufactured after the Daredevil S2 flak. There was no hint of that beforehand.

And now...

"Has the Punisher Gone Too Far?"

That's the real crime resulting out of it. But the original "issue"? Just because Daredevil is regularly fighting an evil, straight-up Japanese ninja clan and they're all bad guys (they're an evil Japanese ninja clan, what on earth did anyone expect?), this idea that it is then the show's responsibility and duty to make sure and find some way to include some good Asian guys to force a balance is outright absurd. I mean, I would hope some Asian character or characters would eventually show up on the show that aren't evil at some point but I'd want it to be organic to whatever the writers are up to, and if at any point it wouldn't be organic then hey, that's fine, don't worry about it. If it's literally, "Uh oh... we've reached our SJW-limit of evil Japanese... call the writers, we need like 2 or 3 good ones next episode, stat!" then that's plain dumb.

Seems weird. I would understand if it took place in Vegas, or had some other blatant connection. Whatever they feel is right, though.

Oh come on, Marvel... like a leaf in the wind, every time. Watch there be reports of "reshoots" and "a delay" now.

I will laugh so hard if that happens.

In fact, I kind of need that to happen now.
Maybe if we're lucky they'll pull in E.T and change all of the guns to radios.
