Marvel has done fantastic in the world of Hollywood for the last few years but they’re equally stong in the animated market. With a multitude of series on their way, a lot of kids are going to be happy and, according Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, so will us bigger kids.

Loeb, who’s a busy man developing live-action and animated shows based on the Marvel catalog of characters, was a recent guest on the worldballoon podcast. During his time on the podcast, he shared some of the recent developments on the Marvel S.H.I.E.L.D. series for ABC and a few of the animated programs scheduled for 2013. While Loeb does reveal 15 other animated projects at various stages in production the one that caught our attention is the currently unannounced animated project starring Frank Castle, better known to us as The Punisher.

While he doesn’t get into specifics, he does mention the inclusion of the Black Widow — which isn’t much more than a tease, but it’s a start. Just the idea of an animated Punisher sounds awesome and I personally can’t remember the last time he was in an animated series outside The Super Hero Squad Show – don’t ask how I know, I just do.

His work on the first Punisher and the short film Dirty Laundry should cement his spot voicing Frank one more time and hopfully Marvel will be smart to listen. They’ve done a great job listening to the fans so far and this isn’t the time to start letting us down now.

    The last time I saw The Punisher in anything animated, was in the 90’s Spider-Man cartoon, so I can not wait for this to come out.

    Since his tame is tagged for the article and the mentioned credits are his you are obviously referring to Thomas Jane in your last paragraph. But there seems to be some setup missing prior to that.
