Deadline reports that Fox has plans to develop Marvel Comics’ “The Punisher” as a television series from former “Criminal Minds” showrunner Edward Allen Bernero.
“The Punisher” looks to take on the form of an hour long police procedural. In this setting, Castle will work by day with the NYPD as a detective, and by night as the Punisher. (Maybe someone is looking at how well Dexter is doing?).
“The Punisher” is the fourth Marvel Universe IP to be flagged for live-action TV joining The Hulk, Cloak and Dagger, and AKA Jessica Jones.
In addition to “Criminal Minds,” Bernero created the police series “Third Watch.”
