The Punisher is Coming to The Small Screen?!

So apparently FOX has ordered a pilot for The Punisher. I'm just as shocked as you. I am the biggest Punisher fan I've ever met, being I have every comic featuring him and all the movies (which I love). Seriously, why have a tv show on broadcast television no less give us at least Showtime.

FOX has tapped Criminal Minds showrunner Edward Bernero to adapt the character to a tv show. The format is actually pretty similar to another marvel character. The show will be an hour-long police procedural featuring Frank Castle (The Punisher) as "a rising star detective with the New York Police Department" and when he goes home for the night, he is The Punisher fixing the filth in the city he can't do legally. Sounds kind of familiar. Just change the setting from detective to lawyer and BAM you got Daredevil or stick with cop and you maybe get Dexter.

Marvel is just milking the characters they own with having multiple shows in-production featuring The Hulk, Cloak and Dagger, Powers, and AKA Jessica Jones. I'm loosing faith in you Marvel.

No news when show will premiere just gotta wait and see
