Turk Barrett continues his streak of running into trouble with Marvel’s Netflix heroes, as the poor arms dealer is set to appear in The Punisher.
The latest issue of SFX Magazine features a new image of Jon Bernthal’s title anti-hero holding a hapless Turk (Rob Morgan) at gunpoint during what appears to be a bungled burglary. While Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) will not appear in the show, Turk will appear in order to serve as the connective tissue between Marvel’s various Netflix shows. Hopefully, this encounter with the fan-favorite gangster doesn’t end up being fatal – from the looks of things, the Punisher might just be after information, and Turk stealing from a hardware store doesn’t seem like it’ll have anything to do with the military conspiracy that will serve as the crux of the show’s plot.
The Punisher begins a reign of terror sometime late into this year. Its cast includes Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle (The Punisher), Ben Barnes as Billy Russo (Jigsaw), Ebon Moss-Bachrach as David “Micro” Lieberman (Microchip), Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Daniel Webber as Lewis Walcott, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Paul Schulze as Rawlins, Jaime Ray Newman as Sarah Lieberman, and Michael Nathanson as Sam Stein.

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