UPDATE: We freaking called it! Punisher is coming to Marvel’s Daredevil in 2016 on Netflix!
Take this with a grain of salt… Because it is going to taste ridiculously sweet! Apparently, Marvel is planning a rather grand “Phase 2” of their TV-series-MCU and Punisher appears to be at the forefront of adaptation choices.
The catalysts are these: Daredevil didn’t shy away from brutal violence and is considered to be one of the best comic book adaptations ever executed. The Vigilantist is reporting via anonymous sources that Netflix is ‘focusing’ on The Punisher for its Phase 2 plans in the MCU TV series lineup.
Thomas Jane, who played Frank Castle in the more widely-known big screen adaptations of the comics, has stated that he is done with the character when asked about reprising the role… So that leaves plenty of speculation room when it comes to casting. Marvel has done a brilliant job with Charlie Cox as Daredevil, and we expect equivalent greatness from AKA Jessica Jones’ casting choices as well.
Our money is on Jon Hamm.
