The Punisher Revival? Marvel Vet Walks Back 'Announcement'


Rumors of a Punisher revival have been greatly exaggerated… by Rosario Dawson.

At the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo over the weekend, the actress behind MCU's Claire Temple gave credence to a rumor that the Marvel series - which was cancelled at Netflix in 2019 after two seasons - was being revived.

"I found out yesterday that The Punisher was happening again so I feel like it's my second chance," Dawson told the crowd (watch the clip here). "It's the only one of the shows that I wasn't in and I love Jon Bernthal so let's all make it happen collectively, guys."

Alas, Dawson - whose former Metro-Gen night nurse character was introduced in Daredevil before crossing over to Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders - took to Twitter Monday to walk back the comment.

"I can't be trusted," she declared. "Getting intel from fans during signings is iffy apparently. My bad. I get excited. Confirmation is key when you're told what you want to hear… "

News of Punisher's non-comeback comes two weeks after it was announced that a Daredevil revival is happening at Disney+. The 18-episode Daredevil: Born Again - which will find Charlie Cox and on-screen adversary Vincent D'Onofrio reprising their roles from the Netflix series - is set to bow on the streamer in Spring 2024.
