Popular American rapper Marshall ‘Eminem’ Mathers isn’t happy with Netflix’s latest decision to cancel their ‘Punisher’ series – and he made his frustration known in a scathing Twitter post.

While plenty of ‘Punisher’ fans across the internet have expressed disdain toward Netflix for ending the show, Eminem’s status on the matter belied an explosive disappointment with the streaming service.

“DEAR NETFLIX, REGARDING YOUR CANCELLATION OF THE PUNISHER, YOU ARE BLOWING IT!” Mathers wrote on February 20. “SINCERELY, MARSHALL.”

The rapper’s post garnered a slew of hilarious comments, one of which suggested that he would record a diss track against the service for their transgression.

However, Mathers’ frustration on the matter isn’t coming out of nowhere; the rapper was featured in an issue of the Punisher’s comic series back in 2009, where the two fought side by side to take down the villain known as ‘Barracuda.’

‘The Punisher’ isn’t the only superhero series Netflix canceled, either – the service likewise brought the hammer down on ‘Jessica Jones,’ which joins the ranks of canceled Marvel series ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Iron Fist,’ and ‘Luke Cage.’

The reason for these divisive cancellations stems from Netflix’s five-year relationship with Marvel, which has since been terminated in light of hefty licensing fees and Disney’s ownership stake with the comic company.

Fans of the canceled series were not happy with Netflix and Marvel’s breakup, taking to social media to express their sadness with humorous gifs – while others even threatened to end their Netflix subscriptions, altogether.

A Disney cosplayer went viral on Instagram after enchanting viewers with her jaw-dropping take on beloved princess, Cinderella. 

One of the most iconic animated films of all time, Cinderella is still as influential as it was when it made its debut in 1950. The Disney adaptation brought a magical take on a classic fairytale and is often considered the best version of the story.

Prolific cosplayer ‘Anastasia Lion’ celebrated the beloved movie by bringing its princess protagonist to life with her insanely accurate costume. Her stunning re-creation of the heroine will be sure to leave fans in awe.

The fairy tale centers on Cinderella, who is mistreated by her wicked stepmother. Her fate changes, however, when her fairy godmother transforms her into a princess so that she can attend the Royal Ball.

Cosplayer Anastasia Lion made waves on social media when she shared her true-to-life take on the Disney heroine. The Russian-based artist faithfully re-created the character’s look from the beginning of the movie when she is a servant for her step-family.

Photographer ‘ph_mosienko’ brilliantly captured the moment, with their work bringing the animation’s visual style to life. Anastasia looks so much like the Disney princess, it’s almost as if she’s walked out of the screen.

In another stunning shot by Elizaveta, the cosplayer showed off her depiction of Cinderella’s flowing blue dress which she wears to the Royal Ball. The gorgeous stone pillars and flowing flowers in the background bring the whole piece together, as it truly looks like the princess is fleeing the event before midnight. 

Despite releasing over 70 years ago, Walt Disney’s enchanting take on the classic folk tale has become iconic in pop culture. Viewers around the world still love the film, and it’s popular in the cosplay community.

Those who have managed to never see the 1950 movie can watch its HD remaster on streaming services Disney+ and Amazon Prime. It is also available to purchase on all digital platforms.
