Cobra Kai at Wonder Con 2019

Show No Mercy! a saying in Cobra Kai and I cannot wait for Season 2 to start, April 24th! Not only am I excited for the new season, but I was super stoked to have the opportunity to meet and talk with some of the cast members of Cobra Kai. What’s to come for Season 2, well from where we left off the rivalry has just begun with Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) but also don’t forget about the Cobra Kai team vs Miyagi-Do, as Daniel LaRusso opens up Mr. Miyagi home as a dojo for his team with Robby Keen (Tanner Buchanan) and Samantha LaRusso (Mary Mouser) and also new members.

Our first interview was with the Series Creators/Executive Producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, not only they were big fans of growing up with Karate Kid movies, but they also talked about creating the series, why they chose to take a different perspective on the continued story. Also gave an insight of which Karate Kid movie was their favorite. We might see some characters from the past in Cobra Kai as well…

We got to interview Xolo Maridueña who plays Miguel Diaz, a character that whom is not so popular and had dealt with some bullying and became Johnny Lawrence first student at Cobra Kai dojo. We talked about his experience on set, the training for the series. Although he says he is not a professional trained fighter as his character, he does have excellent reflexes.

Jacob Bertrand aka Robby “Hawk” Keen one of the most fast evolving character, from shy quiet bullied kid to a mohawk tattooed karate student, Cobra Kai dojo definitely boosted the character’s self esteem. But it won’t be the last we see the character evolve in the series little hints from Jacob Bertrand were suggested in the interview, so we will see soon on what’s to come! especially that he may have spoiled that there could be a Season 3 in the works!

The notorious character from the Karate Kid series has finally joined the Youtube series Cobra kai Martin Kove aka John Keen, to be honest when he came up to our table I was a bit intimidated because he has such piercing eyes, but he is really and truly a sweet guy. During the interview he told us about his career as an actor and a bit of behind the scenes of The Karate Kid, how he was separated from the kids on set just to make more intimidating the young cast. He also talked about how he and William Zabka were trying to write out a script way before the Cobra Kai series had started, of their characters coming back together and of course talks about the relationship of Johnny and John and how it may resurface in the second season.

Last but not least William Zabka, not only he was excited and grateful for Cobra Kai to happen but also talked about the relationship with the two characters of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence and what the future will hold for Cobra Kai, and of course we talked about the famous theory of Johnny Lawrence being the REAL Karate Kid and that Daniel LaRusso was the Real bully in the movie, he very obliged by the theories that spread like wildfire. He also spoke about his scene on How I Met Your Mother after the interview when he revealed himself on Barney’s birthday and it was all done in one take, he was told he only had one chance to get it right with his lines and taking of the clown makeup and costume! sadly we didn’t get it on film, but it was pretty cool to hear about that scene.

The Vanishing

The story follows three lighthouse keepers James Ducat (Gerard Butler), Thomas Marshall (Peter Mullen), and Donald McArthur (Connor Swindells) who stay on a remote isolated island. They find a hidden trunk filled with gold, which leads a burden of unexpected guests.

Not only this movie is a thriller, but its also based on true events and inspired by The Flannan Isles Mystery of 1900, of three lighthouse keepers who disappeared without a trace. In the movie, you follow three of the main characters, as they settle in the lighthouse, they come upon a dead body and a trunk filled with gold. James Ducat and Donald McArthur are very pleased on what they found, but Thomas Marshall fears that there might be unexpected visitors who may be in search of the gold. As the Lighthouse keepers fight to stay alive from the intruders, someone among there group is as well a danger to their own lives.
