Netflix App Reveals THE PUNISHER is Coming In 2017

Netflix App Reveals THE PUNISHER is Coming In 2017

We all knew the spinoff was coming, but it may be coming even sooner than we thought. Could we be seeing three new Netflix Original releases from Marvel next year? Check your calendars now!

Netflix's website has leaked info early before, with manipulation of source codes both revealing the first look at Daredevil's red suit prior to the release of the first season, as well as many of the title episodes for Jessica Jones. And it seems the mobile app for the popular service has revealed a new tidbit: the distributor's expected release year for the highly anticipated spinoff, Marvel's The Punisher.



Now, while this is certainly subject to change, it would be outside of Netflix's pattern to post placeholders for shows more than a year in advance (Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Defenders only got similar pages in early 2016), and The Punisher was announced with showrunner Steven Lightfoot already attached. With The Defenders being an 8 episode miniseries rather than a full 13 episode series, perhaps Netflix is more comfortable having 3 shows a year if one is a shorter episode order? I suppose we'll find out soon enough!

So what do you guys think? Are you excited to be seeing the one-man army hit the streets earlier than you expected? After Jon Bernthals performance early in March, what more do you hope to see from the character's solo series? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
