Marvel's The Punisher spin-off ordered by Netflix
Exclusive: Jon Bernthal to reprise role, 'Hannibal' veteran to serve as showrunner
JAMES HIBBERD wrote:It’s official: The Punisher is getting his own TV series.

EW has learned that Marvel has ordered a spin-off starring vigilante character introduced in Daredevil season 2.

Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as vengeful military veteran Frank Castle, who brings his own lethal form of justice to Hell’s Kitchen.

Writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot (Hanniba, Casualty) will serve as showrunner.

Marvel’s The Punisher marks the sixth series ordered (so far) as part of the collaboration between Netflix and Marvel Television, including the upcoming Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the ensemble miniseries The Defenders – along with Jessica Jones and the aforementioned Daredevil. (And in case you’re wondering, as we are, whether Bernthal’s character will also be added to The Defenders lineup, that’s not yet clear – though it seems likely he’ll at least pop in for an appearance.)

Word that Netflix was working on a potential Punisher spin-off was first reported by TV Line last summer. Netflix and Marvel are expected to publicly announce the project later Friday.

I'm pretty sure that's Karen Page, Scottie Pippen, and Diego, my local garbageman.

"Archie Meets the Punisher"
IN 1994, THE PUNISHER AND HIS FIXER MICRO STORMED INTO RIVERDALE, BELIEVING THAT SUCH A SQUEAKY-CLEAN TOWN MUST BE HIDING ITS OWN SPECIAL BREED OF HELL…

15 Most WTF Things The Punisher Has Ever Done
Jared Canfield wrote:When the federal government of the United States commissions The Punisher, you know you’re in trouble. In Archie Meets The Punisher, things are amiss in Riverdale. A prolific drug trafficker named Red is supplying locals with top-notch narcotics a la 21 Jump Street. Unfortunately for Archie, the all-American ginger happens to look exactly like Red, and he finds himself caught in a web of school dances and midnight drug deals. Even Frank Castle mistakes Archie Andrews for his prime target, taking him captive and holding him at gunpoint.

To say The Punisher looks out of place in Riverdale is an understatement. In this happy-go-lucky land of middle America, the Punisher looks like the grim reaper at Easter. As Archie’s prom date observes while looking at the bearded and skull-bearing assassin, “I knew there’d be a chaperone, but this is ridiculous!” Considering the inherent absurdity of the story, it’s just a shame Archie didn’t get a chance to blow off some steam with a submachine gun.
