If you’ve watched Daredevil season two then it should come as no surprise that Jon Bernthal aka The Punisher is receiving his own spin-off.
The news was confirmed today, a little over a month after his unforgettable debut in the Netflix series.
Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot will join the series as showrunner.
There’s no confirmation as to whether The Punisher will be part of the culminated series The Defenders, although it’s probably safe to say he’ll make an appearance.
For those who haven’t yet caught the latest season of Daredevil (where have you been?), Bernthal delivers a stellar performance as an emotionally broken soldier dealing with vengeance and political injustice after the loss of his wife and two children.
His ‘kill first and ask questions later’ policy was the subject of many quarrels with Matt Murdock aka Daredevil, who prefers a ‘no kill’ approach in dealing with his enemies.
