EW reported that Netflix had ordered a spin-off series of a featured character during the second season of Daredevil, “The Punisher”. The Punisher (known as Frank Castle) is a brutal, morally flexible ex-Special Forces Operative bent on revenge for the murder of his family. Jon Bernthal is reportedly to be reprising the role (good idea). Netflix changed their Facebook profile picture to the above, confirming the report. A Facebook page for the new series has also popped up. I’m really looking forward to it, how about you?
Here is the teaser video.
Update: Jon Bernthal voices his appreciation on Twitter:
He’s back. Thanks for the love y’all. Can’t tell you how much it means to me. pic.twitter.com/GXS5c1RclF
