    It's happening:

    Yes, Jon Bernthal in the role.

    I loved Jon's Punisher...but we now have Daredevil,Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Punisher. In the space of two years we have more spin-offs than CSI or Star Trek. Not to mention The Defenders in 2017.

    Man who even cares about all of those other spin-offs? We've got some mother****ing Frank now.

    I hope he will do Frank things, like punch innocent animals

    or fire rocket launchers at opponents less than four feet away

    or introduce us to the joys of a Frank that shoots Franks.

    Not too surprising. I'm kinda hoping it'll be its own thing and not mean Frank will be a Defender. I'd rather Marvel Studios start just doing more one-off shows for a bunch of different heroes and then maybe include them in Infinity War or something.

    Daredevil Season 2 is essentially Punisher Season 1. So....we're getting even more character establishment in its first year?

    Punisher is one of my top five favorite comic book characters, so I'm obviously extremely happy.

    DD Season 2 even sort of planted the seeds for this. One of the Irish guys Frank blew up in the beginning was Finn Cooley, a villain from the MAX comics by Garth Ennis who gets his face blown off and goes after Frank for revenge. So he should definitely be one of the villains.

    I also hope that they team him up with/pit him against another character, like maybe Moon Knight. IMO Punisher is at his best when he's interacting with the rest of the Marvel universe when waging his war on crime.

    I'm also really curious to see who they'll get to play Microchip. John Goodman would be my personal choice.

    This was like the least surprising news ever, but seriously looking forward to to it, Bernthal was fantastic and pretty much everything about the Punisher was perfect in DD season 2.

    so long as there's still room on Netflix for quality programming like the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.




    kidding. I'd take 40 more Marvel shows over that.

    Reminds me of hobo Superman in Man of Steel.

    I'm so happy that Netflix is moving forward with a Punisher series and making in the same mold as Death Wish.

    Iron Fist is different. He's going to be in Defenders. I don't think Frank will get along with The Defenders so he might be on his own.

    With Defenders, Jessica Jones s2, Daredevil S3, Punisher S1 and Iron Fist all confirmed you'd figure Netflix is going to have to move from 2 a year to at least 3 a year.

    If they count The Defenders separately as a miniseries event like it was announced as, then we might just see them stick to 2 full shows a year plus this one mini.

    That's let them do DD S3 & JJ S2 in 2018, with IF, Defenders & Punisher for 2017.

    I'm surprised we haven't seen more promotional material. But, I guess Netflix needed to focus on Iron Fist to maximise appeal for The Defenders. Then there's The Defenders. I wonder if we'll have a year where all five characters have a season each in same twelve month block.
