5. Connected Marvel Netflix Universe
The Defenders is set to be released this August and it is the culmination of the past few years of Marvel shows on Netflix. The Netflix corner of the MCU has an interconnected and interesting universe, which gives a lot of potential for the Punisher. It has already been confirmed that Deborah Ann Woll will be making her return as Karen Page here, which makes sense given that the relationship between her character and Castle in Daredevil was one of the most compelling aspects of the series. Her being there makes the universe still feel connected and there could be even more connections that we have yet to know.
Details on the series have been quiet, but the possibility of references to the Defenders or even the movies would be really exciting. There’s a lot that can be done and hopefully Castle will have his chance to interact in the world of the MCU and feel like a part of it. It’s definitely one of the things to look forward to when the series is released.
