Marvel and Netflix has announced that there's going to be a delay in releasing The Punisher series on Netflix. 🙁 Instead of late 2017, The Punisher will likely be released sometime in 2018 (Quit pulling our legs, you guys!). If so, then what about the rumors going around that says that Jon Bernthal aka The Punisher will make an appearance on The Defenders, the upcoming show that's going to begin filming at the end of this year? Quote Ted Sarandos, the man behind Netflix, "Uh… stay tuned.” Well there's your answer. It's going to be a big iffy of whether Jon Bernthal will appear on The Defenders show or not. If he does appear on the show and join the Defenders, Frank would make like the Shadowland story line and help the street level heroes defeat the Hand and save the city and the team.
