Looks Like The Punisher Is Getting His Own Netflix Series Now

According to TV Line, it sources reckon that Marvel and Netflix are on the verge of announcing a Punisher spin-off series. This would be first Netflix series not based on the original deal with marvel that included Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and culminating in The Defenders.

This follows various interviews in which both Netflix bosses and members of the Daredevil season two production team have been enthusing about Jon Bernthal’s performance as Frank Castle/The Punisher. “His Punisher is extraordinarily memorable, in every way,” said Jeph Loeb, executive vice president of Marvel’s TV division

“Viewers watching the show will be rooting for this guy with a gun but we’re also going to force people to second-guess themselves,” producer Doug Petrie told EW.com. “Taking lethal justice into your own hands in America in 2015 is tricky s–t.”

Bernthal himself has given EW some more insight into Daredevil season two’s take on the Punisher saying that his character is allowed to develop on a “slow burn”. As with the original comic book version, Frank Castle is a military vet who’s deeply affected by the trauma of losing his family. “But with Frank, what was important was the emptiness inside him. He’s dealing with this unbelievable loss. There’s unbelievable anger and hatred and shame. There’s a sense of responsibility and as a father and husband, if I were to lose my family on my watch… I had to put myself in as dark of place as possible the last six months.

“The effect the other characters have on him will push him certain directions. I think once you see these characters collide, it’s tremendously interesting and emotionally gripping as well. It’s going to be a special season. If you thought last season of Daredevil was dark, we’re going to a whole new place.”
