Year of the Versus: Daredevil vs. Punisher Takes the Lead

This is the Year of the Versus. First we have Batman v Superman. Then there’s Captain America v Ironman (in Civil War). But what I’m most excited about this year is Daredevil v The Punisher. I’ve obsessed over The Punisher since I was 12 years old. He was my first Fictional Crush from the Marvel Universe. Yeah judge me all you want, but Antiheroes appeal to my inner vigilante. 😀

The Year of the Versus

Before the airing of Season 1, I was very skeptical about this new Marvel show, because Agents of Shield was a plain old disappointment for me. And from the DC Comics side, Arrow lost all its charm. It became dull, monotonous, and I’ve stopped watching it. As for The Flash, it’s a decent show and it might appeal to a vast audience but it’s just not my cup of tea.

I was waiting for something dark and gritty, the side of these superheroes we never get to see on the big and/or small screen; and the Daredevil filled that gap brilliantly well. Daredevil is a highly potential candidate to be among the Best TV Shows of all time. But that is only if it maintains that level of quality (or surpasses it) in the upcoming seasons. And the following trailer shows that my hope for Season 2 isn’t misplaced. If this promo doesn’t convince you to binge watch Daredevil, then I don’t know what will.

Doesn’t the “… you’re one bad day away from being me.” line give you the chills?

Jon Bernthal became one of my most beloved actors after his complex role in The Walking Dead. He brought such intensity to that role I just knew that the future held great things for him, and when I heard that he will be playing the Punisher in Season 2 (and is now getting his own series in a spin-off), I thought to myself “The producers couldn’t have made a better choice.” He has handled a complicated and grey-shaded character really well in the past, and I believe he’s going to prove his worth all over again in Daredevil Season 2.

But hey I’m also rooting for Matt Murdock. He’s my sweetheart too. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed and be excited for one helluva season!

Come on 18th March! You can’t come soon enough!

I’m Walking on Sunshine (Woah Ooh)

This is exactly how I feel like whenever I get a blogging award nomination…

Oh yeahhh

No, not like that guy on the left or the woman in the back. I’m talking about J-Law’s FTW fist-bump. Woohoo! 😀

This time I’m nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. *applause!*

Gotta admit, I’m not really a “sunshiney-ish” blogger but I’m glad some of you think of me that way :’)

I’ve been nominated by (yet-again) Mr. Akhiz Munawar. Damn, you’re spoiling me, son!

I’m on a (Warning: too many adverbs coming through) drastically, painfully, excruciatingly busy schedule today, so I won’t be able to nominate others. I hate to break the chain on my end but I have to finish this post in about 5 minutes. And also, the people who I do decide to nominate tell me to not do that anymore because they’ve had too many 😀 See, I have such brilliant people in my WP Fam :’) Proud of them all ❤

So Akhiz asked me a few questions that I have to answer for this nom. Here it goes!

1. Who is your favorite historical personality, your favorite saying by them?
Answer. Err, they’re too many, but I have to go with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and my favorite saying of his:

“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.”

2. Hope, Faith or Love? If you are given a choice to choose only one that will stay with you for the rest of your life which will you choose?
Answer. Faith. If you’ve got faith, the other two are right around the corner 🙂

3. What’s the biggest problem of your country and what’s the sure shot and effective/fastest way to solve it?
Answer. Evil politicians. Solution: lock them all up in a time capsule and open it in the 30th Century.

Nailed It

4. Your all-time Favorite Movie and Song?
Answer. Now that’s a tough one! I have to say, ummm, there’s a close tie between Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Forrest Gump. They hit me hard every single time! Can’t ever get tired of watching them.
As for the song, let’s go with “Holocene” by Bon Iver, “Song for Zula” by Phosphorescent and “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele. Yup!

5. When you are angry how do you express it?
Answer. I don’t. Anymore. I used to, by lashing out at my close loved ones. But not anymore. I guess it’s just a side-effect of growing up 😕

6. Is John Snow Dead?
Answer. NO! A thousand frikkin’ times NO! Just like Glenn isn’t dead in The Walking Dead, my Jon Snow (or should I say Azor Ahai reborn) isn’t dead either!

Save Me Jon Snow

Great questions, mate! 😉

At the end I’d like to thank aalll my beautiful WP Family members who take out the time from their busy schedules and visit my boring-ass blog. You’ll never know how much this means to me… Okay, okay, want a clue?

*shouting* IT MEANS THE GALAXY TO ME!! 🐱
