Defenders final episode on Netflix has trailer for The Punisher

Following the tradition of Marvel movies, Marvel’s Netflix series The Defenders has a treat for anyone who sticks around through the credits scene in its last episode: a trailer for Marvel’s next Netflix series, The Punisher. The trailer opens with Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) slamming the ground with a sledgehammer and talking about his past. “Memories, they never hurt me,” he says while we see glimpses of Castle’s past — his murdered family and his stint in the army. “The past is more than memories, it’s the devil you sold your soul to.

Cinemark Marvel Marathon

Marvel Universe

Whether you’re new to the MCU or a Marvel superfan who just can’t get enough of it, Cinemark Theaters has the event for you.  From August 25 through August 31, the theater chain will be screening themed marathons of selected movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, each tallying up at a ticket price of five dollars. This adds up to a $20 expenditure for a streak of four movies, but that’s still not much more than it would take to see the same content in a spree of high-definition Amazon rentals. A unique marathon will screen each day in select theaters across the United States, a list of which is available on the Cinemark website. The marathons themselves are grouped by theme, with titles like “Origins” covering Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, and Doctor Strange, or “Cap’s Best Of”, which will run through all three Captain America movies in addition to 2012’s team-up movie The Avengers. The last day, August 31, will pair the two Guardians movies together in a cosmic one-two punch.
