One show that fans are definitely waiting to see and have waited to see for some time now, is Marvel’s The Punisher. After the positive reception for Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of the iconic character on Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil – it was only a matter of time before he was given his own solo show.
The latest trailer features the character in classic revenge mode:

The show will definitely have no trouble building up buzz, but an even more interesting thing to note is that it’s rumored that Moon Knight could appear on this season:
During the Punisher segment of the presentation, our distinguished host C.B. Cebulski who happens to be Senior Vice President of Creator and Content Development at Marvel) dropped an interesting tidbit about Frank’s debut show. While praising Jeph Loeb‘s oversight over Marvel TV’s success with the Netflix shows, C.B. stated offhandedly in verbatim that “another Marvel hero may be showing up [in the Punisher],” a comment that a handful of the audience gasped at. There’s no telling what C.B was truly implying but for the sake of it, let’s try to guess who it is.
Another interesting possibility is that the hero being talked about by C.B. is none other than Marc Spector/Moon Knight himself. We know that The Punisher will heavily incorporate military elements in its plot so who’s to say that another military guy like Marc Spector couldn’t possibly show up in Frank’s show? Daredevil Season 2 practically functioned as a backdoor pilot for Frank’s own season so we know Marvel and Netflix are open to mix and matching character debuts in the shows.
Marvel’s The Punisher will hit Netflix sometime this year (speculation points to the show premiering in November).
