Netflix executives have hinted that Marvel’s Daredevil spinoff starring Jon Bernthal as The Punisher would not arrive until 2018.
But a recent announcement regarding the actor’s schedule may indicate that we could be seeing The Punisher on screen much sooner.
New York Comic Con sent out a tweet saying, “Due to his Netflix production schedule, Jon Bernthal will only be at #NYCC on Saturday and Sunday.”
The only Netflix role Jon Bernthal has signed up for, as far as we know, is that of Frank Castle aka The Punisher. So, if he’s currently filming something with Netflix it has to be related to that, right?
Maybe The Punisher shows up in Iron Fist, which is filming now. Or maybe he’s filming for The Defenders, which is set to begin production shortly. Or maybe Marvel and Netflix have secretly begun filming the solo Punisher series. There was a rumor that said the show would be released in 2017, rather than 2018 as Netflix executives had suggested.
We hope to hear more about what Bernthal is up to very soon.
