Netflix Ready For “Marvel’s Punisher” Series?

Netflix is reportedly very close to greenlighting “The Punisher,” a new “Daredevil” spinoff series centered on the Marvel Comics gun-toting vigilante character as portrayed by actor Jon Bernthal says TV Line.

Bernthal first appears as the character, also known as Frank Castle, in the upcoming second season of “Marvel’s Daredevil” which will debut on March 18th. Early buzz on his work is said to be overwhelmingly positive.

Netflix and Marvel reps declined to comment on the project which would mark the sixth Marvel project at the streaming giant alongside four solo and one team-up project.
