Not only is Jon Bernthal taking the role of The Punisher in the second season of Daredevil, but he is also given the chance to make his character a central figure in the upcoming Netflix/Marvel project. Although not much is yet clear about the future series, TVLine has confirmed the following:
‘Netflix is thisclose to pulling the trigger on The Punisher, a new Marvel spinoff series centered on Jon Bernthal’s gun-toting Daredevil vigilante.’
Fans will be able to catch a glimpse of The Punisher once the upcoming season of Daredevil is out, on March 18th. The bad news is that for Frank Castle to have a full-length show going on, we might have to wait until The Defenders premiere, a hypothesis which implies a lot of patience. With all that said, Netflix sure is hungry for material inspired from the world of comics, as the latest news confirmed the addition of a second season of Jessica Jones. According to Time,
‘Marvel will release a new Netflix show every six months’.
