We’ve been excited for Jon Bernthal to take on the role of The Punisher in the upcoming season of Daredevil: now, it looks like Marvel is ready to spin off the character into a show of his own.

TVLine is reporting that Marvel is very close to developing a spinoff series of The Punisher to join Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist on Netflix. This is awesome news, considering that the next season of Daredevil doesn’t drop until March 18th: Marvel clearly has a lot of confidence in Bernthal’s portrayal of the character, enough to create an entirely new series.

If a series goes forward, we’d be interested in what ground it would cover: we’ve already seen an origin story with Thomas Jane’s Punisher, but as Daredevil showed us, you can show off the origins of the character through flashbacks, rather than that being the focus of the series.

That said, we really hope that this doesn’t mean that Marvel won’t do a second season of Jessica Jones. That would be a really unfortunate move, given how excellent Jessica Jones was as a series.

Eh. I don’t hate the Punisher and it’s a good fit with the rest, but there are at least a half dozen other characters I’d prefer first (such as Moon Knight, or Cloak and Dagger. Ghost Rider.).
