The Punisher - Netflix series

It's finally official. Netflix has ordered a Punisher series after months of rumors.

Well I'll be darned. They're actually going through with it after it was seemingly debunked.

Can't wait!

Am I reading too much into this line at the bottom of the press release? Sounds like they are planning more series outside of the already announced Defenders.

and the other exciting new Marvel Television series coming to Netflix

Well, there's Iron Fist and Defenders.
Plus a 2nd season of JJ was ordered, right?

Yeah that's probably all it is. I'm just holding out hope for an Elektra spin-off. Oh well, excited we're getting this spin-off. Bernthal killed it in this role.

I'm curious how this is going to work, given how his story arc went on Daredevil. That said, this might be the only time I have ever given a crap about the Punisher

Hire CM Punk to pen an episode. If his Marvel Youtube interview was any indicator, the guy is desperate to hang out with Frank

This is good news so long as they start doing 3 of these a year. They almost have to at this point.

Also wish they'd put these damned things on blu ray...

Ditto, don't other Netflix originals have Blu-ray releases?
Daredevil would probably sell well on home media. Or maybe Netflix is trying to push the idea that "streaming is the way of the future!"

I remember those rumors from years ago that they were thinking of making Punisher, Moon Knight, and Ghost Rider shows on Netflix. They went with Punisher, clearly, but Ghost Rider was on Shield, so maybe Moon Knight can show up.

I just wish Ghost Rider wasn't a part of Shield, but only because I'm not a fan of the show. How was he on that show? ToTheNines, I know you know.

Moon Knight seems hard to pull off, especially considering that Netflix seemed unwilling to fully embrace more of the fantastical elements of Iron Fist (i.e. we barely saw Kun'lun or the dragon)...

I'd love to be wrong, though.

The Ghost Rider on SHIELD was a FAKE Ghost Rider. It wasn't Johnny Blaze and there was no flaming motorcycle.

In any case, he was barely a part of SHIELD and it was treated as more of an introduction to him than any kind of, "Oh, he's a part of SHIELD now." There's nothing stopping anybody from making a Ghost Rider show on TV or Netflix now, though I don't think SHIELD ratings saw the spike as a result of him they were hoping for that would need to happen for it to be a consideration.

If Moon Knight appears on Punisher, as is rumoured, I'll be there night one.

If it's Warren Ellis' "Mr. Knight" I'll squeal.
