Commence your screaming!

Although no-one is probably too surprised, we certainly are excited… it’s official, Netflix has put an order in for a Punisher Series!

Very little is known about the show so far except that that image above is the first official image from the show (nice) and Jon Bernthal will reprise his role of Frank Castle.

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

We’re not sure if the show will take place before or after The Defenders or even if Punisher will join Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron fist and Luke Cage in the Defenders at this point.

This is the sixth Marvel series with Netflix – Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The defenders and now Punisher.

We’ll keep you posted as and when we get more details, people…

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….
