PUNISHER, written by Avengers architect Jason Aaron, will be a 13-issue prestige limited series. Running monthly, each issue will be oversized to explore the past, present, and future of Frank Castle’s character and reveal where his motivations truly lie. The series will be drawn by Jesús Saiz and Paul Azaceta, with each separately taking on Castle’s present day and Castle’s past through flashbacks, respectively.

“After writing the Punisher over the years, I’ve always been fascinated by the character of Frank Castle. What moments made him the Punisher, even before that fateful day in the park? And how far will he go to win the war that has consumed his life? Spoiler: as far as it damn well takes,” said Aaron. “This story is the destined next step in the dark and tragic evolution of Frank Castle, from troubled kid to heroic soldier to revenge-driven vigilante…to the duly anointed King of Killers. Believe me when I say, I am as excited about this story as anything I’ve ever written for Marvel.”

As the Punisher, Frank Castle has become the most accomplished killer the world has ever seen. After a shocking secret pushes him to become the warlord of the Hand, he now serves the Beast, a role he’s been fated to fulfill. Tragedy, war, and rage come together as he takes up his sword and his new armor with the most notorious clan of assassins in the Marvel Universe. Will it mean an end for the Punisher? Or a whole new bloody beginning?

“A few years ago, Jason Aaron came into one of our creative summits with a pitch for Frank that made our collective jaws drop,” said Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “The story Jason is telling – a truly epic tale about darkness, violence, and choices – can only be told with the Punisher at its core. This series will build on Frank’s legacy while introducing us to a side of him we’ve never seen before, setting the stage for an evolution that we’ll find was inevitable.”

More information about PUNISHER will be released in the coming months.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This one sounds interesting and we love the adventures of the Punisher here at the Media Command HQ but I might need to pass since limited series are better enjoyed in a collected edition for me these days. As per usual I will be perusing this one on the racks when I pop into my local shop to see what’s the what. This is sure to be a hit based on the fine creative team and as I wrap this one up I wonder what you in the readership think about it all. Chime in down below in the comments and let’s get that countdown to Christmas going (if you’re someone who celebrates it like we do of course). See you next time, stay safe out there.

Netflix Cancels “Marvel’s Punisher” & “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” After Second/Third Seasons

The Scoop:
Over the last few months we’ve been keeping pace with the slow demise of the Marvel Television/Netflix collaborations and shared reports about the cancellations of “Marvel’s Iron Fist”, “Marvel’s Luke Cage” and “Marvel’s Daredevil” – When I added those narratives to our Pop Culture region, it was assumed that it was only a matter of time before both “The Punisher” and “Jessica Jones” would follow in cancellation. That moment has arrived with the following statement. Read on.

“Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’ will not return for a third season on Netflix,” Netflix said in a statement. “Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come. In addition, in reviewing our Marvel programming, we have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones.’ We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognized by the Peabody Awards among many others. We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I don’t think that I need to paint you any clearer a picture but in case you can’t figure this out, the Marvel and Netflix deal is done and there will be NO additional series coming to the network. Part of me wonders if these will move over to the upcoming Disney streaming service or remain here and what of the cast who played some of these characters perfectly. Will all of the main characters of Daredevil, Punisher, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones be recast? I guess it would be cheaper to start over if they even return in some format. Disney is not known for its mature audience stuff and there were moments in these shows that were nothing less than intense. As I write this I should admit that I didn’t watch my second season of “The Punisher” yet and “Jessica Jones” is still a few months away from even premiering so I don’t have to worry about that just yet. I will miss these series and what they were doing for the more grounded Marvel Cinematic Universe of characters but I will admit that they didn’t do as much inferring to their common existence as I would have liked them to.
