Could we soon see Frank Castle's mcu debut? If the latest rumors are true, we just might. Mark Hamill is voicing another classic villain from your childhood, and Netflix's latest move to help it compete with house mouse may not be what you expect. Let's dive in. What's up, guys? Welcome back to Pod flicks and chill. As always, I am your host, Andrew, and here is your streaming news. As you probably recall, earlier this year Marvel Studios reacquired the rights to characters such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke cage, Iron Fist and the punisher. These characters were on loan to Netflix, who did an overall decent job with them. It's no surprise, then, that rumors almost immediately started flying that Charlie Cox's Matt Murdoch, Aka the man without fear, would reappear in spider man three. No way home. There's even been speculation that Christen ridders Jessica Jones may appear in the upcoming she hulk series now filming for Disney plus. Of course, the latest rumor...

...in that mill appeared on the fanfast website, as well as many others, and it involved. John Benthal's punisher, bearenthal, immediately captivated fans with his portrayal of the former soldier turned Badass gun toting vigilante, and now reports suggest that he could be making an appearance in the Disney plus moon night series. This appearance would have him faceoff against the titular character, who will be portrayed by Oscar Isaac. The two may then team up to face whoever is the series big bad. But what do you guys think? What mcu hero or villain would you like to see John Barnhall's punisher faceoff against? Leave me a comment on social at Pod flicks, the letter N and chill. In a week full of premieres, trailers and announcements, the masters of the universe revelation trailer dropped. This animated series, executive produced by Kevin Smith, will be hitting streaming giant Netflix on July twenty three and boasts an all star voice cast. Chris Would, Aka Monel from the CW's supergirl, will play the title...

...role of he man, and other voice actors include dear drick Baker, Kevin Conroy, Phil Lamar, Justin long and the legendary Mark Hamill. As skeletor now. To be honest, this was never a franchise that interested me. I'm not sure if I was too young when the original toys and series came out or what, but I do know the love that Kevin Smith has for all things nerd and I think we can expect great things from this series. And while you may not see a Netflix branded retail store in times square anytime soon, the company is finally made the leap into an e commerce store. Netflix dot shop is a website where fans can and purchase officially licensed gear from their favorite netflix properties. The rollout will be slow, featuring products from only a handful of hit shows and movies, but will soon include things like pillows, tables, baseball hatch shirts and so, so much more. The move comes as a way to take a slice of the hundred and twenty eight billion...

...dollar Pie of entertainment themed to peril. Disney has tons of experience in that arena already, but let's face it, with Netflix's prices going up and the ability for people to create five profiles per household, they are probably looking for more ways to make money. I mean, I haven't paid for my netflix account in like ever, thanks mom last but not least, it would not be a new segment if I didn't mention sports. I had recently mentioned in another episode a deal between Disney and the NHL to stream a select amount of hockey games exclusively on ESPN plus and Hulu throughout the next seven years. But this deal isn't the only one of its kind. Prime video will be hosting Thursday night football through two thousand and thirty three, with other Games available on a number of different streaming platforms, including paramount plus, ESPN plus and peacock. And updated seven year deal between the MLB and ESPN plus allows them to...

...stream one regular season game pretty much every single day, with ABC and ESPN Games also available on the streaming APP. The WMBA will stream sixteen games of its current season on prime video, with a number of other games going straight to social media streaming on twitter and facebook. And after the WWe shut down their streaming platform, their content will now be available on peacock, as well as over forty seven thousand hours of other content. And paramount plus has its site set on not only dominating the original content of the streaming wars, but also becoming a premiere soccer hub Viacom CBS secured the streaming rights to a number of different leagues that I'm not even going to attempt to pronounce, for a combined total of the streaming rights to over one hundred games. Now sports have been cited as one of the main reasons that more people haven't cut the chord...

...to their local cable providers, but as more of these deals get made that will change. But that wraps up this week's edition was streaming news.
