Another street-level superhero is coming to the MCU.
Although their shows ended years ago, the Defenders and the Punisher are still the talk of the town. Daredevil is set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, so fans have reason to be excited.
But what about the rest of the Defenders’ team?
There has been speculation that Jessica Jones will join the MCU soon. Fans are also curious about what will happen to Jon Bernthal’s Punisher.
Bernthal has not been shy about discussing how the character would fit in with other MCU films. He stated that he would return if the show were “at a certain level of darkness.”
Fans may not have to wait long for news on at least one more Defender. This is because someone familiar might’ve confirmed his appearance in the MCU.
At the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, Rosario Dawson accidentally confirmed the Punisher’s return.
The actress revealed that she “found out yesterday that the Punisher was coming again.” Dawson said that she’s excited because it was the only Netflix series where she did not appear.
“I found out yesterday that The Punisher is happening again. So, I feel like it’s my second chance because that’s the only one of the shows I wasn’t in, and I love Jon Bernthal. So, let’s all make it happen collectively, guys.”
Although confirmed, it’s unclear whether the project will be a reboot of the series. With Daredevil: Born Again given a release date, we can expect to see a potential Punisher cameo in it.
