As most Punisher fans were probably well aware, back in October, ABC and Fox were all set to bring Frank Castle to the small screen. However, it now appears that those plans have been shelved. There doesn't appear to be any reason given for this, but The Punisher has now joined AKA Jessica Jones (based on Brian Michael Bendis' Alias) as a Marvel adaptation that fans won't see on the small screen.

Personally, I'm not that disappointed as the writers vision of Frank Castle appears to be entirely different to the Frank Castle that the fans know and love from the comics, but it would have been nice to see everyones favourite vigilante grace our television screens, after all; who doesn't love a little bit of punishment?
