‘Daredevil’ Star Seemingly Confirms MCU’s Punisher is Returning
With the character set to appear in the upcoming She/ Hulk series releasing on Disney+ later this month, one actor that was closely connected to that series may have slipped up a bit, as Daredevil star Rosario Dawson has seemingly confirmed MCU’s Punisher is returning.
It was a series that truly revolutionized a lot of the perceptions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking this otherworldly universe that would often occur within an intergalactic setting, and grounding it with a narrative that truly embraced a more human perspective.
Daredevil was a true feat for Marvel and was the first in a long line of projects that developed a section of the MCU that was previously unattainable, with Matt Murdock and others presenting a view of events from those who existed within that universe.
It was a project that eventually was just the beginning of a wider Netflix collaboration that would go on to be dubbed the Defendersverse; named after the Defenders team that several different series would intertwine within, creating its own team-up of franchises.
That Defendersverse would come to an end with the establishment of Disney+, and Marvel’s willingness to embrace long-form storytelling without the need of a collaborator like Netflix, and with the end of that collaborative relationship, came to the question of if those characters would be returning.
Phase four has already proven that Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock is coming back, and it seems like that may have just been the start, as Daredevil star Rosario Dawson has seemingly confirmed the MCU’s Punisher is returning also.
Speaking at a convention about her being present in most of the Netflix series- with the exception of Punisher- it was reported by ComicBook.com that the actress stated, “I found out yesterday that the Punisher was happening again, so I feel like it’s my second chance,”
There has been no official news rating that Jon Bernthal’s Punisher series is coming back, but it certainly would be welcomed by the fans, as he was the perfect casting for the iconic-albeit potentially problematic- superhero.
