But what was still missing from the character, and will Iron Fist Season 2 give it to us?

Fans might not have to wait as long as they initially thought for the return of Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) to Netflix. Bernthal was fantastic as the Punisher in season two of Netflix’s Daredevil. That performance directly led to a spinoff series about the troubled vigilante, but no one expected that new series to get done by 2017. Now thanks to a Reddit posting there is a chance that the Punisher series might make it to Netflix sometime in 2017. (more…)
Netflix‘s second season of Daredevil was fantastic in so many ways. Jon Bernthal knocked it so far out of the park when it came to Frank Castle and the Punisher that Marvel and Netflix decided to spinoff the character into his own Netflix Punisher series.

Last year, Daredevil smashed into the hearts of fans with bone-cracking intensity. This pitch perfect, character driven action fest put to rest any lingering phantom pains from the 2003 Ben Affleck vehicle.
