By Matt O.

We all knew it was coming, but now its official folks! Entertainment Weekly has just official revealed that Marvel & Netflix has officially ordered The Punisher spin-off series starring Jon Bernthal. As I said above, any fan of the Daredevil series pretty much knew this was coming, it was just a matter of time. Bernthal's performance in this year's season 2 of Daredevil was simply phenomenal and he is now in a lot people's eyes the one and only Punisher.

EW has learned that Marvel has ordered a spin-off starring vigilante character introduced in Daredevil season 2.

Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as vengeful military veteran Frank Castle, who brings his own lethal form of justice to Hell’s Kitchen.

Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot (Hanniba, Casualty) will serve as showrunner.

Marvel’s The Punisher marks the sixth series ordered (so far) as part of the collaboration between Netflix and Marvel Television, including the upcoming Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the ensemble miniseries The Defenders – along with Jessica Jones and the aforementioned Daredevil. (And in case you’re wondering, as we are, whether Bernthal’s character will also be added to The Defenders lineup, that’s not yet clear – though it seems likely he’ll at least pop in for an appearance.)
