Though rumours were swatted aside, EW is now reporting that The Punisher from Marvel's Daredevil series on Netflix will be getting the spinoff treatment, OFFICIALLY.

Hannibal writer and executive producer Steve Lightfoot looks set to serve as showrunner whilst there's also implications that character Frank Castle who takes up the Punisher mantle could be stepping into collaborative series The Defenders.

Jon Bernthal is the actor behind this version of the character and has been praised for his portrayal of the ultra-violent vigilante in the second season of Daredevil.

Of course, everything is still in early stages so any talk of a debut date for the spinoff and further characters or casting for it look to be something way off in the distance at this point.

Marvel's Daredevil seasons 1 and 2 plus Jessica Jones season 1 are available on Netflix now, with Luke Cage season 1 arriving in September. Iron Fist, The Defenders and The Punisher are expected to follow at some point thereafter.
