Netflix Cancels THE PUNISHER & JESSICA JONES, Leaving It No Marvel Shows

Deadline:

Exactly a month after the launch of its second season on Netflix, Marvel’s The Punisher has had to bite the bullet as has Jessica Jones.

As the only two series from the TV arm of the comic giant still left on the streamer, there will be no Season 3 of the Jon Bernthal led vigilante series, I’ve learned. The completed third season of the Krysten Ritter starring Jessica Jones will still appear on the streamer but will be put on ice for good after that.

I guess this really isn’t a surprise, given that Disney is launching Disney+, and making more shows on Hulu featuring Marvel characters….but it’s interesting that Jeph Loeb’s letter to fans basically blames Netflix?

Samsung to Stop Producing Blu-Ray Players

CNET:

Samsung appears to be following the lead of Oppo and exiting the Blu-ray player market in the US.

Samsung has elaborated on an earlier report that it was no longer making 4K players and has confirmed that it will also halt production on new 1080p models.

”Samsung will no longer introduce new Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray player models in the US market,” a Samsung spokesperson told CNET.

I’ve gone digital with my media (books and comics included), but this feels like kind of a sad end of an era.

Smash cut to 10 years from now where “retro” blu-rays are the hottest thing going.

DC Comics Creates A Toy Line Which I’ve Never Felt More Targeted For

DC Comics:

DC ¡LUCHA EXPLOSIVA! is a thrilling and imaginative new universe that blends the action-packed world of Lucha libre with iconic DC characters. Each 7’’ action figure is a Latin American-inspired reimagining of a popular DC Super Hero or Super-Villain, complete with a unique character backstory rooted in Mexico’s rich cultural history. Fans can create epic storylines while battling with the first wave of figures inspired by Superman, Metallo II, Wonder Woman, and the Cheetah beginning in August, 2019.

Guess I need to clear off some shelf space.

I sure hope Ramon Villalobos is getting some cash off of these.
