NETFLIX ORDERS 'MARVEL'S THE PUNISHER' TO SERIES

 

Jon Bernthal reprises his role as Frank Castle!

 

This good deed goes unpunished!

 

Netflix has ordered a full first season of “Marvel’s The Punisher,” continuing their unprecedented collaboration with Marvel Television.

 

Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as Frank Castle, introduced to fans earlier this year in the second season of the Netflix original series “Marvel’s Daredevil,” with Steve Lightfoot (“Hannibal”) serving as Executive Producer and Showrunner in addition to writing the series’ first two episodes.

 

“We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon’s stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil,'” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, “Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring 'Marvel’s The Punisher' to Netflix.”

 

“Jon hooked our global audience with his performance as Frank Castle from the moment he stepped on screen in 'Marvel’s Daredevil,' and we are looking forward to seeing more of him in this role under the vision of Steve Lightfoot,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content.

 

“For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Steve Lightfoot. “After watching Jon’s performance in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.”

 

“Marvel’s The Punisher” marks the sixth series ordered thus far as part of the groundbreaking collaboration between Marvel Television and Netflix including the upcoming “Marvel’s Luke Cage,” “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” “Marvel’s The Defenders” and the Peabody Award-winning “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”

 

“Marvel’s The Punisher” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

I'm up to episode nine so far and am enjoying it quite a lot. The old school comic book guy in me (ya know, the guy who at one point bought Punisher, Punisher: War Journal, and Punisher: War Zone mont

Just finished it. So damn good. Bernthal deserves an award. It also had the most satisfying ending of all the shows I'd say. Maybe behind Jessica Jones. Her finale was really fucking good. I can't wai

^exactly this

wondering how it'll pan out, i hope they don't do like Alias and just load a whole season with say Jigsaw or someone, im really hoping for a few eps just like his stuff in Marvel Comics Presents where it's single stories about hitting certain mob targets/etc

I stand with Donatella, Elektra was the exact mixture of tropes that makes me actively despise a character's mere presence (the big reveal did little to assuage this) and Matt's "Fuck you Foggy, I'm a superhero so I can stay out late on a school night if I want to!" schtick got tired in a hurry. I began actively thinking "What's all this boring Daredevil bullshit doing in my Punisher show?"

I dig that new poster and "Micro" features prominently on it. So I'm guessing the guy in the dilapidated building sporting the beard and beanie is Microchip. No doubt he's saying something like, "Get out of there NOW, Frank!" On the phone.
