As I read this I got chills! Oh yes, Marvel’s The Punisher has been greenlit by Netflix, with Jon Bernthal reprising the role from the AMAZING Daredevil Season 2.
The Punisher, otherwise known as Frank Castle is a vigilant with a a few anger issues, and where as must superheros tend to want to have their villians locked up, The Punisher guns the fuckers down in the most violent way possible. And I bloody lvoe it.
Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal, Casualty) will serve as showrunner.
Marvel’s The Punisher marks the sixth series ordered from the recent collaboration between Marvel Television and Netflix. In my opinion, it’s been a marriage made in heaven.
The Punisher with follow the upcoming Luke Cage, Iron Fist and ensenble series, The Defenders – along with Jessica Jones and Daredevil.
We can’t fucking wait!
