The Punisher Gets His Own Netflix Series

Well, that didn't take long. After Jon Bernthal's extremely well received portrayal of Frank Castle on Season 2 of Daredevil, Netflix has announced he will be the next Marvel character to get his own show. He was long thought to be a candidate for this from the very beginning of the Marvel Netflix shows, seeing how popular he is and how rabid the character's fanbase is already. But with Iron Fist set to premiere next spring and The Defenders miniseries next fall, the question becomes when will we actually see The Punisher show? Looks to me like 2018 at the earliest, unless Netflix decides to break with their routine of releasing two Marvel series a year. They may do it for this one though. We'll have to wait and see.
