‘THE PUNISHER’ Release Date Reportedly Delayed In Wake Of Las Vegas Tragedy

With Marvel’s THE PUNISHER being the final Marvel Netflix show of 2017, after the divisive reviewed IRON FIST and the critically acclaimed THE DEFENDERS, the show was to continue its marketing campaign at New York Comic Con with an announcement for its release date very likely.

However, plans changed after Marvel announced they would be cancelling the NYCC Panel for THE PUNISHER, due to the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas which sadly took the lives of 58 people, believing it would not be appropriate to do any marketing for the show at that time. We at SuperBroMovies found this decision very respectful by Marvel and Netflix and it seems that it was even more than just cancelling the NYCC Panel.


According to @vernejgay, THE PUNISHER was initially meant to release in the middle of October however Marvel and Netflix have now decided against that due to the Las Vegas shooting, we should take this as a rumour as we do not know how reputable of a source she is, however it does sound very likely that this is true and that the release date would’ve been announced at New York Comic Con.

What are your thoughts on Marvel and Netflix cancelling the NYCC panel for the show and possibly delaying the show due to the Las Vegas shooting? Let us know your thoughts.

Marvel’s THE PUNISHER stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle and the synopsis goes as follows:

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.

  1. I can see why they are doing this and I can see peoples frustrations about the delayed release. But if punisher is anything like he was in the daredevil series. Frank castle was a raging lunatic that was partially rained in by daredevil but now he has his own show so it could be more R rated more gruesome we know he like his guns that in it self could be seen to glorify what happened in Las Vegas. But also they could be just being respectful of the 58 lives lost and 100s injured. I’m really excited to see punisher but I also respect there decision to delay the release.
