Netflix’s, The Defenders brought all of the MCU’s street-level heroes together, with one glaring, gun-toting exception. Frank Castle, better known as the fugitive vigilante, the Punisher wasn’t invited to the party, but Jon Bernthal, who plays the deadly vigalante, is game for it in the next season of The Defenders. And at a recent panel at a convention, Bernthal revealed two reasons why he wants in.

On Sunday, Bernthal and fellow Punisher co-star Ebon Moss-Bacharach appeared at a panel at ACE Comic Con in Arizona. During the Q&A portion, Bernthal was asked which of the Defenders he’d love to appear onscreen with. The actor revealed his two choices: Daredevil star Charlie Cox (again), and Jessica Jones lead Krysten Ritter.

On Charlie Cox, whom Bernthal already appeared alongside in Season 2 of Daredevil, Bernthal said: “You know, I love Charlie [Cox]. I’ve worked with him before and I’d work with him again on anything in a heartbeat. He’s the reason I’m doing this. He brought me into this and his performance is what made me want to do it.”

On Ritter: “I’m a huge fan of Krysten’s [Ritter] too. She’s killer and I’d love to work with her as well.”

“That being said, they’re all great,” added Bernthal.

Should Frank Castle ever meet the Defenders, one should expect the former Marine to be hostile. In the comics, the loosely-organized Defenders have never had the Punisher in their ranks. And as recent as 2017, in Brian Michael Bendis’s run on The Defenders comic, Frank Castle knocked out the Defenders with nonlethal rounds, putting them in the hospital. It’s kind of a jerk move against fellow superheroes, but Frank Castle didn’t get his name for being brutally polite.

As the MCU franchise reaches the end of its “Phase Three” in cinema, the TV universe continues to thrive without an end in sight. The Punisher has bee greenlit for a second season. The Defenders hasn’t been confirmed for renewal, but Jessica Jones is now filming its sophomore season while Daredevil will eventually return for Season 3.


Marvel’s Jessica Jones will return to Netflix on March 8.

One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

Back in September, a huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leak listed 10 characters allegedly coming to the new roster. At the time we ranked, putting one possible addition from the Fire Emblem universe near the bottom of our list, but based on a compelling new argument it may be time to rethink that ranking.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.
