Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) will write and serve as showrunner for the Punisher spin-off.
The Punisher joins Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cake, and Iron Fist in the Marvel Television Universe on Netflix, along with Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, and the upcoming Marvel’s Damage Control and Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. There is also a Defenders series coming, which will pile several of these characters into one limited series.
Marvel will own your television and cinematic lives for the foreseeable future.
