No “Punisher” Series As New Promo Hits

Netflix continues the promotional push for the second season of its “Marvel’s Daredevil” series, unveiling a new poster and motion promo for Jon Bernthal’s take on The Punisher in the episodes.

The material hits as Marvel Television’s Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb tells Digital Spy that rumors about a proposed spin-off series starring Bernthal’s The Punisher character are not true:

“I think that’s something that people are speculating on, as opposed to something that’s actually happening. It’s certainly our hope that any of our characters will be embraced and that people want to see more of them.”

Meanwhile Variety reports that anticipation levels for the new season are already outpacing last year’s engagement.

Online videos and social media posts for the new season are all considerably up on the same point (three weeks out from release) last year ahead of the show’s first season. The first trailer released last week has already racked up 4 million views on YouTube.
