BREAKING: Punisher spinoff officially ordered by Netflix
In news we’ve been waiting for since we first laid eyes on The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal all bloodied up and musclebound in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil, gun-toting vigilante Punisher will officially be given his own Netflix spinoff, according to ComingSoon.net.
You may remember us gushing about how fantastic Bernthal is in the role of Frank Castle / Punisher, and it seems the whole world agrees with us. We know so far that in the new spinoff show, which has just been officially ordered by Netflix, Bernthal will reprise his role as Frank Castle, with Hannibal executive producer Steve Lightfoot set to serve as showrunner.
This latest commission for a Marvel x Netflix collaboration comes hot off the heels of hugely successful series Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Marvel’s Luke Cage will premiere on the streaming service this September, and Marvel’s Iron Fist is currently in production. All four of these series will culminate in the much anticipated Defenders team up, which we expect to see before the Punisher series hits our screens.
More info on all Netflix x Marvel news as we hear it, but in the meantime can we please just take a minute to relive this scene?
