The Punisher: From Netflix to Disney+
Before landing on Disney+, The Punisher made Netflix subscribers happy. Bad luck, Mickey’s platform ended up regaining control of the Marvel series. Much to the chagrin of moviegoers.
In shock, many celebrities have not hesitated to be indignant. On social networks, Eminem had even shouted his displeasure.
“Dear Netflix, Regarding your cancellation of The Punisher, you are completely screwing around! Sincerely, Marshall”had notably written the interpreter of the title “Rap God” on his Twitter account.
A message that was unanimous. Indeed, more than 300,000 people had liked the artist’s words. But that’s not all. They were also more than 100,000 to retweet the message.
Faced with this enthusiasm, the actor of Frank Castle, who plays the hero of The Punisher, wanted to thank his admirers. “To all who love and understand Frank and his pain. It was an honor to walk in his boots.”
At the time, rumors about the final end of the series were going well. But the boss of Marvel had cast doubt. “As Matthew Murdock’s father once said, ‘You don’t measure the quality of a man when he’s knocked down, but how well he gets up.'” he exclaimed.
For the moment, nothing indicates that a 3rd season would be in preparation… It is therefore a question of being patient. MCE TV tells you more about The Punisher.
5 things to know about the show
And Punisher enjoyed real success, it is above all thanks to its scenario. In fact, it is indeed one of the most violent Marvel series.
Interviewed by Vulture, the director said: “For me, it was clear that we couldn’t do a non-violent series on the Punisher. »
“But we show what the price of this violence is. We make it real and we don’t take it lightly. We had to show Frank pay for it, so he wouldn’t get away with it. He suffers physically and emotionally after each of these scenes.
A violence that seems to have pleased the fans since The Punisher would have relayed Jessica Jones au second plan. Still, it’s one of the only series in the franchise without Claire Temple.
