PC POST #322: Marvel's Punisher set for 2017, new characters and new photos on set!

Today we have been "bombarded" with Punisher news ! Three new characters, release date and new photos on set with a Daredevil's character.

First things first, Marvel finally revealed that the Punisher series will premiere in 2017. 
Good news for Marvel fans in general, because next year we will have Iron Fist, Defenders and Punisher series.

Three new characters were announced. 

Ben Barnes will play Billy Russo, unlike the Punisher War Zone movie and comics, "this" Billy Russo was Frank Castle's best friend from his days in Special Forces. He runs a private military corporation called "Anvil".

Ebon Moss-Bachrach will play Microchip, a former NSA analyst whose secrets will help Frank Castle and everyone around them.
Not the Microchip everyone were expecting but let's see how Ebon will portray him.

And finally Amber Rose Revah joins the cast as Dinah Madani, a highly trained Homeland security agent who is vexed by the Punisher. An original character created for this series.

A new set of photos was released with a Daredevil character... Can you guess who she is?





It was far from being a surprise for me. She was by far the only link to humanity that Frank ever had in Daredevil season 2. 
I don't believe this will be a "thing" between the two, but she might be a huge help to Frank, as a journalist.

I didn't think that Jigsaw was a big villain from the Punisher. But now, with this huge retcon to the character it might get even more interesting. Because they were friends in the past and both probably have similar skill set.
He isn't just a mafia enforcer like in the comics and in Punisher: War Zone (2008).

Great day to be a Punisher fan and a Marvel fan too.
