In a surprise announcement, Netflix has ordered Marvel’s THE PUNISHER to series for their streaming service! Making his debut in the second season of Marvel’s DAREDEVIL, Frank Castle played by Jon Bernthal was an overall hit. Everyone wanted more of the Punisher as he took down criminals violently, but also had a true story and suffering within him.
The Punisher will be the 6th Marvel series picked up by Netflix, the others being Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and the Defenders event. At this time, we don’t know how this fits into the larger Netflix universe or release schedule, but regardless to say, it will be welcomed.
Hannibal executive producer Steve Lightfoot set to serve as the series’ show runner, and we’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available. Until then, enjoy this teaser for Marvel’s PUNISHER series!
