With everyone excited for Daredevil arriving in a few short days and Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist on the horizon at Netflix and Marvel, we’re already thinking about what might come next. We’re just like that, you see.

So, we’re thinking Ghostrider and Punisher might be a good place to start… and lo, it looks like we aren’t the only thinking of the big white skull on a black muscle top.

Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight has been talking about making an R-Rated Punisher series: “I’d love to see him get his due on a platform like this,” he said, talking about the Daredevil TV plans, “Nothing would delight me more than to see the Punisher get his own show and maybe we could convince Marvel to go Hard-R rating. If any character deserves an R rating, it’s the Punisher.”

DeKnight has said that, while Daredevil isn’t R-Rated, it is very dark – it certainly looks darker than anything Marvel have done yet – and he reckons this is a good place to start with getting the Punisher we deserve: “Steven DeKnight said that Daredevil is one bad day away from being the Punisher. I thought that was really helpful. Again, it adds to the dark tone, and I think it’s more interesting to watch.”

Remember, the Russo brothers hinted that we may have – sort of – seen Punisher in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so he’s certainly on Marvel’s mind.

Daredevil’s 13 episodes hit Netflix on April 10th.

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….
