Netflix Officially Orders Jon Bernthal ‘Punisher’ Series
The breakout success of Marvel’s “Daredevil” season two was without a doubt The Punisher. Now it looks like he’s getting his own series.
Over here at the Geek Show we have long assumed that we would be getting a Punisher series on Netflix. Ever since learning that he was going to be a big part of the second season of “Daredevil” would couldn’t help but wonder where Frank Castle would end up. Looks like he’s ending up on his own show.
Entertainment Weekly reports that a “Punisher” series has officially been ordered by Netflix, and that makes us oh so happy. Jon Bernthal nailed the part. As a matter of fact he’s probably the first actor to step into a role since Robert Downey Jr where he basically is that character.
With “Iron Fist” in the works, and the “Defenders” being worked on later this year we’re not sure when Frank will make his solo debut. But we’ll be waiting.
