'The Punisher' Series Reportedly In Development Netflix


  By Matt O'Bryant 

TV LINE is reporting that Jon Bernthal's take on The Punisher is extremely impressive, so much so that the executives at Marvel and Netflix are moving full steam ahead with a spin-off series for the character.

This series would be a straight continuation of his character that we will be seeing on the upcoming second season of Daredevil and it will also be part of the same Marvel/Netflix Brand with the most likely the same tone as Daredevil.

While nothing has been confirmed yet by Marvel and/or Netflix according to comicbook.com "Bernthal has received high praise from producers, writers, fellow actors, and executives alike for his portrayal of the gun-toting vigilante who thinks the only way to combat the criminal element is with lethal force."

Even Marvel TV Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb came out earlier in the week with high critical praise saying "[Jon Bernthal's] Punisher is extraordinarily memorable, in every way."
