Marvel and Netflix Might Be Developing The Punisher Spinoff Starring Jon Bernthal
Netflix might just be expanding it’s portfolio of Marvel shows with The Punisher.
Yup, Punisher might finally get a proper adaptation. After those endless rumors floating around, TVLine is reporting that The Punisher is now in development at Marvel.
I’ve been already excited for Jon Bernthal to take on the role of The Punisher in the upcoming season of Daredevil, which is set to premiere on Friday, March 18th but I never imagine it getting a TV Series maybe a Movie but never a series. This is just amazing.
In a recent interview with EW, producer Doug Petrie said:
“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. Taking lethal justice into your own hands in America in 2015 is tricky s–t.”
Marvel TV Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb said in an interview with ComicBook.com:
“Jon Bernthal has succeeded in his quest. His Punisher is extraordinarily memorable, in every way.”
The Punisher’s move forward at Netflix would be the streaming service’s sixth Marvel drama joining Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and mash-up mini The Defenders.
Marvel is yet to confirm the news but with the buzz around the series fans surely want this to happen.
