Per a report from Entertainment Weekly just a few minutes ago, they’ve learned that Netflix has ordered a Punisher spin-off series starring Jon Bernthal.
The Punisher, widely considered by most to be the highlight of Daredevil‘s second season, seemed like a shoe-in for his own series and was definitely being set up as such in the mechanics of that season’s narrative.
Hannibal vet Steve Lightfoot is set to serve as showrunner for what will be Netflix and Marvel’s sixth series together.
Marvel and Netflix are expected to officially announce the new series later today, along with the above teaser image.
