Get ready for the new daily show

Netflix may be showing The Punisher series sooner than we expect…

June 3rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

One of the best things about the Netflix TV MCU shows so far is Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle AKA Punisher as seen in Daredevil Season 2.

Look, we can’t lie we didn’t love Luke Cage, Jessica Jones or Ironfist… but we did love Daredevil’s first two seasons and we loved the Punisher we got.

And we’ve known for a while that a standalone series was happening, we just didn’t think we’d see it until next year however it seems we’ll get it much sooner.

Series director Deardbhla Walsh spilled the beans in a new interview with THR: “[I’ve directed] one other time that hasn’t been aired yet, which was an episode for the new Marvel series The Punisher, which I did just before Christmas, but it’s not airing until November.”

So while The Defenders premieres on August 18th, it seems we’ll only have three short months to wait for Castle to arrive in his own series.

So November will have Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League and now The Punisher.

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….
