Hannibal producer Steve Lightfoot will serve as showrunner on the latest Marvel series. “For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world,” Lightfoot said in a statement. “After watching Jon’s performance in Marvel’s Daredevil I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.”
It’s unclear whether the series will pick up where the Daredevil series left off, if it would serve as the character’s origin story or if producers would tackle one of the Punisher’s more fan favorite storylines like War Journal, The Slavers or its 1985 limited series. A premiere date was not revealed.
