Netflix has just announced that another Marvel television series is finally officially in the works and that the cast for the main series will surely make it better.

Another one of the Marvel universe’s vigilantes is going to make its debut on television soon. Netflix has just confirmed that Marvel’s "The Punisher" will be having its own television drama series and it is set to release in 2017. With “Jessica Jones”, “Luke Cage”, and “Daredevil” already paving the way for Marvel series on Netflix, “The Punisher” will evidently be received just as well as the other Marvel series.

Unlike everyone’s favorite vigilante, "Deadpool," who’s an upbeat psychopathic mercenary and assassin, "The Punisher" is one tough anti-hero who has gone through a tragic past. "The Punisher," otherwise known as Frank Castle, is a vigilante who resorts to murder, kidnapping, extortion, threats of violence, and even torture in his own war against the growing numbers of crime happening in the society. Frank Castle was a military veteran who is skilled in many different fields and sadly he saw the deaths of his wife and children when they were killed by a mob.

The new Netflix series "The Punisher" is actually a spinoff series created from ‘Daredevil’ and actor Jon Bernthal will be reprising his role as the unmerciful Frank Castle. Along with Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, and another “Daredevil” series actor, Deborah Ann Woll is already confirmed to be part of the series.

But with the announcement of the release date, additional cast members have been revealed for “The Punisher”. Along with the aforementioned cast, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman, and Michael Nathanson have been officially announced to act in the new Marvel series. Though there is still no definite date within 2017 as to when “The Punisher” will be released, it has been reported that the filming has already started this October.
