Caution: This post includes minor spoilers for Daredevils 2nd season.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Netflix has actually ordered a Punisher offshoot collection starring Jon Bernthal, that would certainly be repeating his role from Daredevil with writer and also exec producer Steve Lightfoot as showrunner. Lightfoot will pen the initial two episodes.
In a blog post revealing the information from Marvel, Jeph Loeb, Exec Producer and also Head of Wonder Television, credited Bernthals performance for hooking the viewers. The offshoot has been floated around also prior to the Punisher went into Hells Kitchen in Adventurer.
For me, the complexity as well as changability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly engaging character as well as I couldnt be much more fired up to dive into his world, Lightfoot claimed. After enjoying Jons efficiency in Marvels Risk-taker I could possibly not be much more thrilled to be working with him to more establish as well as proceed the story of this anti-hero in a program of his own.
The last time we saw Frank Castle he seemed leaving Hells Cooking area after getting away from prison and briefly joining Risk-taker, although something could merely bring him back into the layer.
The Punisher offshoot is now the 6th TV program within Netflixs area of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Risk-taker has actually already aired 2 periods, Jessica Jones has actually been restored for a second season, and Luke Cage, Iron Clenched fist, as well as a Defenders miniseries are all on the way. Theres no information on The Punisher apart from show annoucement or cast aside from Bernthal, so well have to wait to see whether heck be joining the Protectors in addition to getting his very own program.
