First introduced in season 2 of Netflix’s Daredevil series, The Punisher spinoff has been confirmed! The tortured soul and fan favorite that is Frank Castle will indeed be getting his own show according to reports from EW, and ComicBookMovie.com. We also understand that the antihero may appear in the upcoming Defenders – which is the full roster of all Netflix’s Marvel heroes banding together for a big throw down.
In a true renaissance for comic book and superhero fans, Marvel’s The Punisher will be the sixth series created from the collaboration between Netflix and Marvel Television. The quality of stories and their creation in a more gritty real-life world has been fantastic to watch. We don’t have a date for when Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as The Punisher, one of the few characters willing to kill in the name of justice in post attack NYC. But in the meantime we have more Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist coming next. Rumor is the Jessica Jones story will serve as a common thread to unite these stories.
