Netflix greenlights PUNISHER TV series

Netflix has greenlit a TV series of The Punisher. Spinning off from the second season of Daredevil, The Punisher will be Netflix's sixth TV series based on characters from Marvel Comics (following on from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders) and will see Jon Bernthal reprising his critically-acclaimed role as Frank Castle.

Steve Lightfoot, who worked on Hannibal as a writer and producer, will produce, showrun and co-write the new series.

Based on Netflix's scheduling and the lead time for their projects, it's unlikely we will see the first season of The Punisher until late 2017 or early 2018.

If they want to keep it in Hells Kitchen, The Irish Kitchen run from Punisher Max would make a great central story line.

Personally I'd love to see a bit of travel- Mother Russia maybe or Barracuda (my personal favourite).
