After all the hype behind of the great acting of Jon Bernthal as the Punisher, Netflix surrendered to the claims of the fans and already ordered a Punisher series.
The producer and showrunner will be Steve Lightfoot ("Hannibal"), Jeph Loeb ( Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television) thanks to the fans about all the excitment about the powerful performance of Jon Bernthal as the Punisher in Marvel's Daredevil.
“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. 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." Said Steve Lightfoot (Producer and Showrunner of Marvel's Punisher).
Marvel's Punisher will mark the sixth series ordered by Netflix. And will join to the other series like Marvel's Luke Cage, Marvel's Iron Fist, Marvel's Defenders and Marvel's Jessica Jones.
So far there is no official date of the release but it's a safe bet if i guess it's somewhere in 2018 due to the high scheduling of Netflix in producing the other series already announced.
What matters is that we are getting our Punisher series and we should be happy about it.
Good luck to Steve Lightfoot and i hope he can nail the character as Marco Rodriguez and Doug Petrie did in Marvel's Daredevil.
