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.

DARE­DEVIL CAN­CELLED

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.

SLEEP WRAPS

FILM­ING has wrapped on the lat­est Stephen King movie, Doc­tor Sleep.

This se­quel to the hor­ror mas­ter’s 1977 book The Shin­ing, tells the story of Danny Tor­rance who, now an adult, is still strug­gling with his gift – and the mem­ory of his fa­ther. 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.
