Deborah Ann Woll Joins “Punisher” Spin-Off

Marvel and Netflix’s “The Punisher” spin-off series continues production in New York City this week with set photos just out confirming that “Daredevil” alum Deborah Ann Woll will also be reprising her role of Karen Page in the upcoming series.

The photos show off a much more hirsute Frank Castle interacting with Page, a not unexpected connection following their unconventional but ultimately close relationship in the second season of “Daredevil”.

It does confirm that events here take place after that, so the long hair and beard isn’t for a flashback as has been speculated. No premiere date has yet been announced for the series beyond it being sometime in 2017, though as this has begun production before “The Defenders” it might well screen before it.
