Revenge fantasies have worked as star vehicles for a handful of box office legends. But unless Marvel and Netflix can land a lead actor with the appeal of 70's era Clint Eastwood, a 13 episode Punisher tv show is a tough sell.

Frank Castle is a great fit, however, as a kick ass supporting character who alternates between friend and foe with the rest of the Defenders. I can imagine getting a glimpse of the skull shirt before an episode fades to black and wondering if he is going to help our heroes or make things that much worse for them.
