Marvel, Netflix Combine Forces To Bring 'The Punisher' Series!
For the fans of the highly celebrated "Daredevil" TV series, having Frank Castle -- also known as The Punisher -- in the show is just plain awesome. In fact, many loved how the actor, John Bernthal, portrayed it -- fearsome and full of guts. As surprising as it may sound, but the character is getting its own series, as Marvel and Netlflix join forces to make it happen on the small screen.
According to Gizmodo, the popular studio that brought the likes of Iron-Man and Captain America will team up with one of today's most favorite content streamers to provide the fans what they have been waiting for -- "The Punisher" solo series, that is.
Steve Lightfoot, known for "Hannibal," will be the showrunner for the Marvel and Netflix's "The Punisher" project, helming the sixth series in the companies' partnership.
Netflix made it all official when they shared via social media a teaser video for "The Punisher," tweeting that Frank is back -- locked and loaded. Fans will surely be thrilled.

It is worth noting that the character Frank Castle has been played by various actors in the past. From 1989's Dolph Lundgren ("The Punisher") to Thomas Jane's 2004 "The Punisher" and Ray Stevenson in 2008's "Punisher: War Zone." Bernthal is the fourth actor to play the fictional antihero.
Ars Technica notes that the first three adaptations were not even successful, as they performed very badly at the box office. However, with the success of gritty films such as "Deadpool," it only shows that superhero films and/or comic characters do not have to be PG 13 in order to accumulate higher ticket sales.
As of this writing, there has been no official word yet as to when "The Punisher" series will be released. The cast members as well as other details about the show have also been kept under wraps. Anyway, this is an interesting show for the fans to anticipate.
