Well it’s now official. Netflix has ordered a new Marvel series based on The Punisher.
Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as Frank Castle and, according to EW, writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal, Casualty) will serve as showrunner.
Netflix tweeted out the announcement early this morning along with this teaser image via its official NetflixUS account

The spinoff will mark Netflix’s sixth Marvel series, following Daredevil, Jessica Jones and upcoming releases Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
So I guess the next question is
will Frank be making an appearance in The Defenders? how big of a role will Frank be playing in The Defenders?
