Netflix’s ‘The Punisher’ To Possibly Feature Another Marvel Hero

Punisher Jon Bernthal CostumeIt’s not San Diego and it’s not Hall H, but Asia Pop Comic-Con did offer some interesting news in it’s Hall M Marvel presentation that featured footage from Inhumans, Thor: Raganarok and Netflix’s upcoming The Punisher series. During the presentation, Senior Vice President of Creator and Content Development at Marvel C.B.Cebulski told fans that “another Marvel hero may be showing up (in the Punisher).”

That comment apparently earned a gasp from the audience — for good reason. Now the speculation can ensue.

Who that hero may be is up in the air. Daredevil and Iron Fist seem like solid possibilities — or really any Netflix hero. Daredevil stuntman Chris Brewster has The Punisher on his IMDB, so that could be telling. Is Netflix just staying with familiar talent, or will Matt Murdock make an appearance?

Another possibility could be a new hero entirely. Frank Castle is a military man, so could Marc Spector/Moonknight make his debut? Netflix has debuted characters in other shows leading up to their solo outings before. Or could Marvel Netflix finally be solidifying a connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe? The options are wide open there.

Who do you think could make an appearance in The Punisher? Is it obvious or something way out of left field? Let us know in the comments below!

After the murder of his family, Frank Castle is both haunted and hunted. In the criminal underworld, he’ll become known as The Punisher.

The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Deborah Ann Woll, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman and Michael Nathanson.

While there has been no official word on a release date from Marvel or Netflix, the series has been expected to debut in fall 2017.

10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See

Previous1 of 11

Netflix The Defenders The Avengers Marvel Cinematic UniverseAfter three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.

Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.

Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.

Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.

So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!

  • Docteur Lobo

    To be perfecty honest, right now, I don’t have enough faith in the Marvel/Netflix teams to pull off a smart, competent Moon Knight.

    • Michael J. Simmons

      If Moon Knight it would be to show off two wildly different vigilantes. Frankly I would hold the Moon Knight for either a Daredevil season or even a Defenders story arc as a quasi-villain type a true “Anti-Hero”.
