2017 is going to be a busy time for the Neflix/Marvel team up.
Not only will we see the last of the heroes, Iron Fist, showing up in his own solo series but there's also a major show called The Defenders which will bring him together with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Daredevil.
And now it seems we're going to have even more to look forward to with word that The Punisher spin-off show is also coming in 2017.
Marvel confirmed the news and also announced a bunch of new cast members, here's the rundown:
"Daniel Webber (“11.22.63”) has been cast as Lewis Walcott, a young veteran who has had a difficult time re-assimilating into Civilian Society.
Jason R. Moore (“A Lonely Place for Dying”) joins as Curtis Hoyle, a friend of Frank Castle’s and one of the few people who knows he is alive.
Paul Schulze (“Nurse Jackie”) will play Rawlins, a high-ranking member of the CIA whose operations in Afghanistan intersect with Frank Castle.
Jaime Ray Newman (“Bates Motel”) plays Sarah Lieberman, Micro’s wife (played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach) whose marriage has made her life far more complicated.
Michael Nathanson (“The Knick,” “Wolf of Wall Street”) has been cast as Sam Stein, a Homeland agent who is challenged by his partnership with Dinah (Amber Rose Revah)."
Given that The Punisher is already shooting and The Defenders isn't its reasonable to assume that we're going to see Jon Bernthal getting violent again in between the debuts of these other two properties. Iron Fist is coming in March so perhaps a summer session for The Punisher and a big late in the year release for The Defenders?
We'll have to wait and see.
