It’s been confirmed today that after his appearance in Daredevil season two, The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) will be getting his own standalone TV series on Netflix. This is Marvel’s sixth confirmed team up with Netflix with the others being Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
Although the news is unsurprising, as the reaction to The Punisher (including our own) in Daredevil was an incredibly positive one, it’s great to have it officially announced so soon. Steve Lightfoot, best know for the TV show Hannibal, has been announced as the showrunner and it’ll be interesting to see where he takes Frank Castle. Having set out on a mission of revenge in Daredevil season 2, will we see more straight up (yet extremely brutal) vigilantly ‘justice’ from him or will they keep him down a much murkier, personal journey? Here’s hoping the latter!
The announcement was made by the official Netflix Twitter account.
