Recently, Jeph Loeb of Marvel Television revealed that there wasn’t a plan for the Punisher to get his own solo series on Netflix. This has disappointed some fans, while others are confident it may still happen based on what may happen with Daredevil Season 02.
One man who would be ready to be the Punisher in the solo series is none other than Jon Bernthal, who plays the character in the upcoming season of Daredevil.
“We’re the last to know about these things,” Bernthal told Empire regarding a potential solo series run. “But this guy is burned into my heart and soul. I think about him all the time. And I look at it the same way Frank would look at it. I’m a soldier, man. If they call on me, I’ll stand to attention, and I’ll be ready.”
This will definitely give hope to Punisher fans, as well as maybe show Marvel that even the Punisher himself wants a solo run. As with all things though, this is very much a patience game. Though early reports of Bernthal’s performance are very positive, we won’t know what the larger crowd thinks until Daredevil Season 2 arrives March 18th.
