When the character of Frank Castle first appeared on the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, fans almost lost their minds. The violently dark series was the perfect place for comic book hero The Punisher to make his long-awaited appearance.
Throughout the second season of Daredevil, Jon Bernthal didn’t disappoint with his portrayal of The Punisher. It was only a matter of time before he would get his own stand-alone series, and the time is drawing near.
While Netflix is keeping the release date of The Punisher under wraps a bit, we do know a couple of things. The series will delve into Castle’s tragic past to see how he became the man he is today. Karen Page, who grew to understand Castle a bit during Season 2, will be playing a fairly prominent role as well.
