Lingering Questions Leading Up To ‘The Defenders’

10. Will the Punisher show up?


With the cast stables of its shows full, Marvel is taking advantage to stock up The Defenders with all the most famous and familiar faces, in a way it largely resisted during the shows. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist supporting players all come together to make up the full cast of the miniseries. One notable superhero and Netflix show headliner who hasn’t been confirmed is Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle aka The Punisher. We know his own Netflix series is in production for a fall/winter release after The Defenders. Given the overlapping filming schedules of the two series, it remains plausible, even likely, we’ll see Bernthal pop up during the superhero team-up, perhaps another Han Solo moment a la the Daredevil season 2 finale.
