Netflix’s next Marvel TV Show ‘The Punisher’, starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, is readying up for a late release this year. Details on the show have been scarce but it seems like we may have learned an important detail this week.
Marvel held their own panel at the Asia Comic-Con, where they showed off footage ffor their latest shows and films. This included ‘Inhumans’, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, and ‘The Punisher’. During the presentation for ‘The Punisher’ the host C.B. Cebulski, also known as the Senior Vice President of Creator and Content Development at Marvel, had this to say about Punisher’s show. He said, “another Marvel hero may be showing up (in the Punisher).”
Of course he didn’t reveal who will be making an appearance. but MCU Exchange have their own theory and I must say that it makes a lot of sense. The theory has to do with the ending of ‘The Defenders‘ so we’ll talking huge spoilers ahead so you’ve been warned.
At the end of ‘The Defenders‘, a severely injured Matt Murdock was shown. The shot and scene was taken directly from the comic storyline Born Again. He’s dead or at least missing to the public, if Frank Castle were to learn about this I think he would be inclined to find out what happened. It could be a small appearance or he could pop up in multiple episodes. MCU Exchange also found out that the Daredevil stunt personChris Brewster has ‘The Punisher‘ listed in his IMDB credits so you can take that was you will.
