Will The Punisher Join The Defenders?

Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle aka The Punisher

Fan-favorite anti-hero, The Punisher (played by Jon Bernthal), was so popular on Daredevil Season 2 that he earned his own Netflix television series.

But has he earned a spot on the Defenders‘ squad?

When asked if he would join Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in the upcoming series, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos said, “Uh… stay tuned.”


My guess is that the Punisher will show up significantly in that series, but he won’t officially be called a “Defender” — considering the whole thing him being perfectly comfortable offing bad guys without a second thought.

More good news here, though: Sarandos is pushing to get Marvel’s Netflix shows made faster. He told the Television Critics Association press tour this week, “I doubt that we could produce at the quality that they produce at that speed. But we’re gonna try to make them quicker so we can get less downtime between them.”

The next new Marvel series to be released on Netflix is Luke Cage, which debuts on September 30th, followed by Iron Fist, which is currently in production.SuperFable
