TELEVISION: The Punisher headed to the small screen


What is it about The Punisher?  The Marvel character has three feature movies (Thor only has one), and now word is out that Frank Castle is getting his own television series.

Fox bought the project with a commitment to air the pilot from Ed Bernero and ABC Studios.  While you might be excited about seeing an adaptation of the comic vigilante, Deadline reports that this television series will be a police procedural, that features Frank Castle as a rising star detective in the NYPD who moonlights as the vigilante.

Currently in production, The Hulk, AKA Jessica Jones, and Cloak and Dagger are still in the works at ABC.  Let’s see who gets their shows to air first – Fox or ABC.
