  • JoBlo
When it comes to tales of vengeance, the story of Marvel’s The Punisher was one that always stood out. While there has been a ton of talk about the Netflix series starring Jon Bernthal, it took a bit for me to finally take it in. When I did tune it, it stuck with this viewer. From the premiere episode to the upcoming season two premiere, the series impressed on many levels. While much of that comes from the incredible stunt work and the character itself, the cast really brought the series…

The Sopranos Prequel Movie Gets Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga
The Sopranos prequel, The Many Saints of Newark, just added Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga to its cast. The news comes after the 20th anniversary of the hit HBO show, which took place last week and helped renew interest in the series. Viewership on HBO Go and HBO Now was up 70% from where it was in 2018 and many attribute that bump to the 20th anniversary interviews that were released last week. Now, excitement is about to ramp up for the prequel, which is currently in the casting phase of development.

While Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga have joined the cast of the Sopranos prequel, it is unclear who they are playing. They are joining Alessandro Nivola, who stars as Dickie Moltisanti (Christopher's father).

We’ve got some big casting news to share with you regarding David Chase’s The Sopranos spinoff film, The Many Saints of Newark. According to Variety, Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) and Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring) have joined the cast of the film.

There’s no information on who Bernthal or Farmiga will play in the movie, but it was already revealed that the story would be set in the era of the Newark riots in the ‘60s. "That was a time when the African-Americans and the Italians of Newark were at each other’s throats, and amongst the gangsters of each group, those conflicts became especially lethal."

It was also recently revealed that the story will also involve a young Tony Soprano. Chase explained that he’s looking forward to exploring the period that Tony Soprano glorified in the show’s early episodes:

The Sopranos Prequel Adds The Walking Dead, Bates Motel Favorites

The Sopranos prequel movie is starting to take shape. 

Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga are the latest additions to the cast of The Many Saints of Newark, reports Variety. 

The movie will be skipping HBO entirely and will instead release in theaters. 

No details have been revealed about who Bernthal and Farmiga will be playing. They join a cast that already includes Alessandro Nivola.

It's not uncommon for details to be scarce, especially when the project is likely still a long time away from releasing.

The movie will take place in the 1960s, and will feature the Newark riots.

It's unclear which characters from the series will show up, but it would be difficult to imagine a young Tony Soprano not stopping by for part of the action. 

Thankfully, The Sopranos creator, David Chase, has been part of the creative process and co-wrote the script with Lawrence Konner.

Punisher Star Jon Bernthal To Lead The Sopranos Prequel Movie

You can go ahead and add The Sopranos prequel movie to the list of big-name projects lining Jon Bernthal’s slate.

The former Walking Dead actor has been on something of a roll ever since he departed AMC’s hit zombie drama – save for a brief cameo in last year’s mid-season finale, Bernthal’s Shane Walsh hasn’t been spotted since season 2 – given he’s nabbed roles in everything from The Wolf of Wall Street to David Ayer’s gritty WWII tank movie, Fury.

And now, having wrapped season 2 of The Punisher, Jon Bernthal has set sights on his latest gig: The Sopranos prequel movie which, according to Variety, will have him star opposite Vera Farmiga of The Conjuring franchise. New Line failed to disclose any casting information, so it’s unclear as yet who Bernthal and Farmiga will be playing when Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) steps behind the lens to direct.

David Crow Jan 14, 2019

Charlie Cox Still Hoping For A Daredevil And Spider-Man Team-Up

Daredevil might be dead, but the star of the Netflix series is still hoping to cross paths with another Marvel superhero at some point. Charlie Cox has never been shy about voicing his enthusiasm for a potential crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in an McU movie and, even though his show was cancelled after just three seasons, the British actor has still got his fingers crossed.

While attending Ace Comic-Con Arizona over the weekend, Cox was asked the perennial question of which Marvel hero he’d like to team up with. Before he gave his answer, he made clear that he sadly doesn’t see a way that his dream choice is feasibly possible and that he doesn’t want his opinion being misconstrued as something that’s actually happening. That being said, here’s what he had to offer up:

Charlie Cox Still Hasn’t Seen Daredevil Season 3

In perhaps a crueler twist than the finger snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel fans were treated to the fantastic third season of Daredevil last October, a run that many were calling the best season of the Defenders corner of the McU. But just a few weeks later, the bombshell came that this was to be the final season of the Man Without Fear’s series.

Since then, many have probably rewatched season 3 again and again – through tears – trying to get back to a happier time when we all thought Daredevil had a few more seasons left to go. Interestingly, however, Matt Murdock himself, Charlie Cox, is taking the opposite approach to the show’s cancellation, as he hasn’t even seen the latest season yet.

While attending Ace Comic-Con in Phoenix, Arizona, Cox was asked by a fan what scenes that were filmed for season 3 didn’t make the cut.

Mattel Films: "Masters of The Universe"

Mattel Films, firmly taking control of their toy properties, in partnership with Columbia, will produce a new 3D, live-action feature based on "Masters of The Universe", with Art Marcum & Matt Holloway writing a new screenplay, after years of scripts and directors being rejected for not living up to the brand's billion dollar potential:

Filmation's original "He-Man: Masters Of The Universe" (1983) cartoon series, created to sell Mattel toys, was inspired by author Robert E. Howard's "Conan The Barbarian", airing 130 syndicated episodes, starring muscle-bound 'He-Man' defending 'Eternia' and the secrets of 'Castle Grayskull' from the evil forces of fan favorite 'Skeletor'.

The series was followed in 1990 by "The New Adventures of He-Man".

"...during the aftermath of a 'Great War', the 'Sorceress of Castle Grayskull', aka 'The Goddess', gave 'Prince Adam', son of planet Eternia's 'King Randor' and the earthling 'Queen Marlena', his super powers.
