WINTER SOLDIER #1
WHILE a question mark hangs over his fate in the cinematic universe, in the comic realm, Buck Barnes is all about redemption.
Having escaped death, the loss of identity, and a life of murder, the man known as the Winter Soldier has worked hard to atone for his sins. In this new series, we see the Winter Soldier working hard to help others turn their lives around – giving them the same chance he was given.
Written by Kyle Higgin, with artwork by Rod Reis, Winter Soldier #1 is out now priced £3.35.
THE unthinkable has happened, following the axing of Iron Fist and Luke Cage, Netflix has canned the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. And it would appear that Daredevil’s producer was as stunned by the decision as the fans.
Writing on Twitter, Sam Ernst said: “Had a last lunch yesterday with the Daredevil writers. Sushi provided by our Captain, @ erikoleson. Marvel execs there too, just as stunned as we were. More than lunch, really: a wake. A show gets cancelled, all those characters we love die. Why I hate my job. Why I love it, too.”
With Daredevil gone, fans now fear for the future of Marvel’s surviving Netflix series Jessica Jones and The Punisher. Only time will tell.
FILMING has wrapped on the latest Stephen King movie, Doctor Sleep.

Played by Ewan Mcgregor, it shows Danny struggling with many of his father’s personal demons, while elsewhere in the world an evil force is on a collision course. Due in cinemas in January 2020.
