The Punisher in the works at Netflix?!

TVLine and report that The Punisher is being so well received at Netflix that they are hard at work on giving Jon Bernthal his own series to take on The Punisher. No comment from either Netflix or Marvel at the moment.

Bernthal’s take on The Punisher has received high praise from producers, writers, fellow actors and executives alike for his portrayal of the Marvel character.

“[Jon Bernthal’s] Punisher is extraordinarily memorable, in every way,” Marvel TV Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb told earlier this week.

If this series were to happen, it would be the first one that wasn’t part of the initial Marvel and Netflix “partnership.” That “partnership” included: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and a Defenders mini-series that brings those four characters together.
