Netflix announces a stand alone Punisher series


One batch, two batch

If you watched this last season of Daredevil you know that someone finally nailed Punisher. Jon Bernthal absolutely stole the show with his slightly psychotic and entirely compelling portrayal of Frank Castle. People loved it and evidently Marvel and Netflix noticed because they've just announced that Punisher will be getting his own series.

You can check out the announcement video below, which says almost nothing, but is just so insanely perfect with Bernthal reciting the children's rhyme his character is now known for. This is even more exciting because a Punisher series was not part of the original Netflix/Marvel deal. That only included Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. This expansion is great news for those of us who like the smaller, darker Marvel Cinematic Universe on show in the Netflix series. 

The series will star Jon Bernthal and has Hannibal's Steve Lightfoot will serve as showrunner.
