It really was inevitable. We all assumed it was going to happen and now Entertainment Weekly has confirmed it. The Punisher is getting his own show on Netflix.
EW has learned that Marvel has ordered a [Punisher] spin-off starring the vigilante character introduced in Daredevil season 2.
Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as vengeful military veteran Frank Castle, who brings his own lethal form of justice to Hell’s Kitchen.
Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal, Casualty) will serve as showrunner.
There’s even a promo image already.
This is the sixth Netflix series for Marvel. If you include the two ABC shows there are more Marvel TV shows than film series. That’s a little nuts, right?
