New Captain Marvel Posters! Redux
Last week Marvel Studios gave us three new Captain Marvel posters and this week we got three more! The inclusion of Carol’s cat Chewie (rebranded as Goose in what seems like a reach for a Top Gun joke), speaks to the brilliance of the marketing team behind the movie. They know exactly the audience they are targeting and it is me!
Don’t forget to drop right into the comments section and let us know which ones you like the best:
First Look at Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio
Spider-Man: Far From Home (or as I like to refer to it: Spider-Man: Prom), has since wrapped principal photography and is slated for release later this year. Despite sneaky photos having been released from the set which all-but confirmed Gyllenhaal in the role of Spidey’s iconic fish bowl villain, the news has officially been announced along with the following photos:
For my part, I think sans fishbowl he looks like a low rent Doctor Strange cosplayer. The helmet really elevates the look. I am willing to admit that the costume will likely see digital enhancement and will probably look much different than what we’re seeing here.

Netflix Raises Prices & Punisher Season 2 Trailer
Right now – this very second! – The Punisher season two is up on Netflix for all and sundry to watch. The streaming titan is following up the announcement that they would be raising subscription prices by $2 only for American subscribers by dropping what is likely to be one of their final offerings under the Marvel umbrella.
No holding back. Season 2 of Marvel’s The Punisher debuts exclusively on Netflix January 18. Watch Marvel’s The Punisher on Netflix: https://www.netflix.com/title/80117498 #Netflix #MarvelsThePunisher #JonBernthal SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/29qBUt7 About Netflix: Netflix is the world’s leading internet entertainment service with 130 million memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages.
It begs the question … if the numbers Netflix released on Birdbox and You are as high as they claim they are, which would translate to more views, more money – why the cost is being passed down to the consumer? How much higher can the price raise until a tipping point is reached and the majority subscribers say no more?
My guess? $20 is that price point.
