The only casting announced so far, aside from Bernthal, is British actor Ben Barnes. Michael Ausiello has said that the rumour is that Barnes will play the villain, Bobby Saint. Now, the Saints were in the Tom Jane Punisher film as antagonists, but it's my understanding that they were created for that film as original characters. Seems a bit odd to re-use them for this, no?

Oh yeah, this section is finally here. Thanks SuperHeroHype.
I love that movie, so I have no problem with a homage to it.

"One Batch, Two Batch, Penny and Dime"



Now that a majority of his back stories been unravelled in season 2 of Daredevil i believe that it's high time this upcoming series goes all gung-ho with bullets and guns, with tons of action packed goodness.

I feel the same way Jokes, def glad they don't need to do the whole origin story thing with him since that was done in DD season 2. This series just needs to be balls to the wall Punisher and brutal justice. I know they started filming so I'm assuming this is going to come out before the Defenders mini and I wonder if Frank is going to have some kind of role in that or will he be going into his own adventures in the MCU away from the whole NYC thing the 4 Defenders have going on.

He might have an incidental role with the defenders.

While I enjoyed Luke Cage, it mostly just made me salivate at the thought of a Punisher series... I want to see a character that does not hold back.

Jeph Loeb said on Mike Colter's Facebook Live q&a that he's on the set of the Punisher.

Huh
I was almost certain that the long hair and beard was going to be in a flashback to before he became The Punisher.
Karen being there kind destroys that theory though I guess.
I like it, but I hope he doesn't look like that for the entire season.

Logical.
Wonder how she will get over her disdain of Frank killing his former commander against her constant protest.

Frank is dressing like a regular, well-adjusted guy here. No former-military-with-PTSD look.

I think we will get a mixture of 616 and Max. Marvel Netlix hasn't really done any direct adaptations. They cherry pick some stuff from the comics and mash it together with their own ideas.

Ray Schoonover (The Blacksmith) was from 1989's Punisher War Journal 4 & 5.

Villains besides Jigsaw, Kingpin, Saracen, the Russian, Barracuda and Thorn I could see them using are
a version of The Trust organisation from Circle Of Blood. A powerfully independently funded group devoted to ending organised crime that tries to recruit the Punisher.

The Five Widows from The Punisher Widowmaker. Widows of mob guys the punisher killed that come together in a plot to kill the punisher and avenge their husbands.

The Costa crime family. The Maggia family that killed Frank's family in the comics.

The Gnucci crime family from Welcome Back Frank

I never liked Thorn, because sometimes they seemed to go super natural with him, saying he doesn't have to eat and that is not the best fit with Punisher.

If he is just a mob hit man who is immune to pain (but still has to eat and isn't bullet proof) that is a better fit.

I like Punisher better when he is just fighting regular criminals.

I'd imagine we'll definitely hear something, no idea what though. Even if it's just Bernthal confirming they're filming or something lol

Nice, the Punisher forum! Anyone know when the series will be released? I know there isn't a confirmed date, but how long did it take Daredevil or Luke Cage, from when people saw the first set photos to their respective release dates?

Not sure. Iron Fist started filming in April and will come out in March of next year though. So probably about a year.

You called it. They haven't said when, but Marvel did confirm 2017. I'm guessing a year from now. Jessica Jones was released in November. So I'm thinking between end of September to November of next year.
