We reported a couple of weeks ago that The Punisher may well be on Netflix’s agenda of Marvel shows (here)… but now we’re hearing rumours that it is happening already.

The  guys at Vigilantist are reporting that they have it on good authority that it’s happening and, while clearly this is rumour and nothing more right now, we reckon this is on the cards, given the dark tone of Daredevil and just how successful it proved:

“Marvel and Netflix have started to design Phase 2 of their Netflix shows our sources tell us. They also tell us that one of their focuses will be on Frank Castle’s The Punisher [which] makes sense for Netflix there’s not as many restrictions and they could definitely could make it more grittier than Daredevil.”

We’ll keep you up-to-date as more news breaks or anything solid appears. But, like you all I’m sure, we’re excited about this potential development.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
