The Punisher is getting his own Netflix series

For Frank Castle, the war is never over. 

The Punisher was one of the standouts in an already impressive second season of Daredevil of Netflix. A mean, gritty and faithful portrayal of one of the Marvel universe's most damaged individuals, Jon Bernthal's take on the Punisher was second to none.

Which is why so many comic book fans were delighted to hear The Punisher will be getting his own Netflix spin-off show.

As Entertainment Weekly reports, Marvel has ordered a spin-off starring The Punisher with Hannibal writer Steve Lightfoot as the series' showrunner.

The Punisher spin off will the be the sixth Marvel programme available to Netflix, joining Daredevil and Jessica Jones, along with upcoming stories involving Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

As of yet there is no word on whether The Punisher will bring his no-nonsense approach to crime-fighting to the Netflix crossover show The Defenders, but considering his "shoot em all" style, we doubt it.

Needless to say, some people were hyped about the announcement.
