punisherIn the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil, they introduced the Punisher character played by Jon Bernthal. The Punisher is a Marvel character that has been represented multiple times over the years in movies, but safe to say that Bernthal’s portrayal of the character added some depth to it that felt somewhat lacking in its previous incarnations.

In fact there have been rumors that Bernthal’s portrayal was so well done that Netflix and Marvel were considering giving the Punisher his own TV series. Whether or not that is true remains to be seen, but it looks like fans don’t want to wait and have since launched a petition to ensure that it will happen, or at least get the attention of the folks at Netflix and Marvel.

According to the petition on Change.org, it reads, “Netflix, you showed us that you can and WILL make The Punisher great. We as an audience have adored Jon in this role WAY further than you expected. You created him and now we feel you must continue to show how incredible he is/you are. We understand your time constraints and we understand the nature of Hollywood. All we ask is that you greenlight a Punisher series.”

Of course it is possible that Netflix could already be working on developing the series with Marvel. We also know for a fact that Bernthal is more than happy to reprise his role and was previously quoted as saying, “This guy is very much burned into my heart and soul. I think about him all the time. And I look at it the same way Frank would look at it. I’m a soldier, man. If they call on me, I’ll stand to attention and I’ll be ready.” However if you’d like to sign the petition anyway you can find it here.
