Netflix Developing ‘The Punisher’ Spinoff Series

Netflix Developing 'The Punisher' Spinoff Series

Last summer, rumors floated that now that they’ve established their first slate of Netflix programming including “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” and “Iron Fist,” Marvel was beginning to take a look at their Phase 2 slate of shows. Among the contenders to get their own series was The Punisher, Blade, and Ghost Rider, which, as you might’ve noticed, have all previously had big screen incarnations (albeit from different studios). Well, it looks like one of them might be on the way.

TVLine reports that Netflix is developing “The Punisher” after seeing Jon Bernthal‘s performance as the character in the upcoming second season of “Daredevil.” It seems to be in the early stages as no showrunner or writers have been revealed, but my guess is that they are starting the wheels in motion and perhaps waiting to see what audience response is before giving the whole thing a firm greenlight. But it says something that they already seem pretty enthusiastic about Bernthal’s portrayal of the character, and the greater latitude for violence Marvel has on the small screen makes for a good fit.

“Daredevil” Season 2 arrives on March 18th. Let us know your thoughts on a potential “The Punisher” series in the comments section.

This is awesome news! I would love to see a "Pushiner" series. I would love to see a younger actor cast to play "Blade." This is awesome nes all around.

That wasn’t a spoiler, lmfao….no way they were bringing in Punisher just to kill him off.

Cool. The news about a Ghost Rider tv show is aces too. That’s exactly where that character should (pardon the pun) live.
