Remember a couple years ago when there was a whole bunch of talk about the Punisher getting his own TV show, and than out of no where the rumors dropped? Well, here is something interesting. I was recently snooping around Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige's official IMDb profile and I noticed something strange. He is set to be the co-executive producer for a TV show which is set to release this year. It must be Agents of Shield Season 2, right? Nope, that's what I would think to. This show is titled; "The Punisher" In fact, the show even has it's own IMDb page with an official plot.
A rising star detective with the New York Police Department moonlights as a vigilante hero dubbed The Punisher in order to obtain justice for those the system has failed.
Also while on the related subject, also on Feige's profile is a titled Black Widow project, with a set director, one David Hayter, and The Hands of Shang-Chi as well.
With all that being said, I really dont know what to make out of the news. I would love to see Punisher back on the screen, even if it is small. However, I want to see him in the Netflix universe, not on ABC. Marvel needs to be able to to have more freedom with his show. Regarding [Black Widow](movie:1070824), I would love to see her own spin-off movie, I mean who doesn't want to see more Scar Jo? And finally, The Hands of Shang-Chi, I dont know much about Shang-Chi except for the fact he is crazy good at martial arts and is even affiliated with the Heroes for Hire. Is it possible he will be the connection between the Netflix defenders universe and the Avengers Movie Universe as he will have ties with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, both said to appear in the Netflix mini-series?
