Many Marvel fans are still upset after all this time…years after Netflix canceled ALL Marvel series that was supposed to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly after shows like The Punisher, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones received great reviews in their final seasons.
And while it might seem as though all hope is gone to ever see these Marvel Netflix shows again, Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal has always held out hope for Season 3 of The Punisher.
During a recent interview on the podcast of the Geek House Program, the star talked candidly regarding his dreams of returning for a new season of The Punisher, whether on Disney+ or elsewhere.
Bernthal, like any other Netflix star, knows that this chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come to an end. But when the rights to the characters return to Disney, there is a possibility that the star would be willing to perform his part in a new role for such a new project.
“It’s unbelievably humbling how much people sort of responded to this version of Frank, and I can’t tell you how much it means to me because he means so much to me. He’s in my blood, he’s in my bones,” said Bernthal.
“So it’s not about whether we do it, it’s about getting it right, and doing the version that the fans really deserve. We’ll see. I mean, all of those decisions are made in rooms I am not invited into… But Frank’s always there, he’s always a part of me. And when we get the call to go, I’ll be ready, and I’ll make sure that I do everything I can to make sure that we do it right, or we won’t do it at all.”
The Punisher was cancelled after its second season, which was an expected move after the launch of Disney+ and the diminished power of Marvel Television, which was at that point separate from the Marvel Studios banner. But now that producer Kevin Feige has taken over the creative direction of all Marvel properties, there’s a chance that some actors could revive their roles in future projects.
And the internet seems to know about this news as well….
