Principal photography The Punisher series has been well underway. Jon Bernthal has been hard at work stepping into the shoes of Frank Castle, and now he can celebrate the work he has accomplished for the first season of this series.
Production has officially wrapped on the series, according to a tweet from a fan account. This tweet features Bernthal along with co-star Ben Barnes in photos from what is described as the wrap party for the production.

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, Jason R. Moore, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Michael Nathanson, Jamie Ray Newman, Amber Rose Revah, Paul Schulze, Daniel Weber, and Deborah Ann Woll reprising her role as Karen Paige.
The Punisher will be debuting on Netflix later this year. Frank Castle first made his debut on the second season of Daredevil and a spin-off was immediately set with Bernthal continuing in the role. Right now, Iron Fist is streaming on Netflix as one of the four Marvel offerings and look for The Defenders to debut later this year as well.
Lingering Questions Leading Up To ‘The Defenders’
With the release of the first season of Iron Fist, all four Defenders have made their streaming debut to set up this summer’s mashup miniseries The Defenders. Each season has built on the last, building an intricate mythology with a living, breathing New York City to house it. The Hand has been introduced as a sort of evil S.H.I.E.L.D. to link Marvel’s Netflix dramas, building to the four uniting against them. Their separate investigations will bring them together in – what else – a hallway fight.
The culmination of the first phase of the Marvel/Netflix partnership has a lot of ‘splaining to do. What’s the Hand’s true objective? How will our four heroes interact together and how will the supporting casts of their shows intersect here? And perhaps most importantly, who is the Big Bad played by Sigourney Weaver?
