Marvel Confirms PUNISHER Spin-Off Netflix Series Development
If you're looking forward to more the Netflix/Marvel universe has to offer between now and next year, the season two premiere of Daredevil is just a few months away with a March 18 date stamped. By then, you'll be introduced to actor Jon Bernthal in the role of the Punisher among a roster of other seedy characters actor Charlie Cox will be facing.
That said, news of a Punisher series has been circling around quietly online for about a year now, but now it appears that Marvel is confirming the development of a Punisher spin-off with Bernthal likely to star. The news is early so details are pending, but with Daredevil and possibly more Jessica Jones, as well as Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders arriving in the next few years, there's definitely no stopping the Punisher from getting a few shots in as well.

Enter Liam O'Donnell, having worked his way up from VFX work on several projects, as well as co-scripting and producing the first film and now sets his sights with a sequel as his directorial debut in Beyond Skyline - a film that by some accounts probably wasn't expected to happen or even supposed to. It had been four years since the first film and so no one would see an announcement up until 2014, surprising everyone curious and keen, and not for nothing either. The added touch of throwing in people like Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian would certainly pepper the hype up to a certain degree for fans fond of their work on Merantau, The Raid and it's sequel; The mere thought of seeing the two for nothing short of an eyeblink in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be enough to ensue an outcry a year l…
Much was ado earlier this season for actor and martial artist Vincent Zhao whose latest with director and co-star Lu Yitong now spawns the retitled period pic, Invisible Tattoo. The project is a 1935-set actioner that takes place in a southwestern salt industry town and there's no doubt that some thrilling martial arts action will ensue per recent stills and an official teaser now online. Xu Dongdong, Li Mincheng, Sang Ping, Sawada Ken, Juliet Gama and Wang Shengdi also star along with none other than actor and freerunning stunt extraordinare David Belle in his latest stint in China since last year's Super Express. That's all there is to document for now about this movie while the teaser itself is ripe and yours to watch and rewatch to your heart's desire. Peep it.
