This is not the first time we’ve heard rumors about the return of The Punisher but now seems like more a time where this will most likely happen.

Jon Bernthal Wants To Return As The Punisher But Only If They Can “Do It Right”
Jon Berthnal has voiced wanting to return as The Punisher, especially in the MCU, but as long as things are kept grim and gritty. Let’s be honest, we cannot have a watered down version of The Punisher.
“So I was really grateful, respectful, and weary of the places where that role took me and the world in which I had to live in,” the actor said last year about his role as The Punisher. “That being said, that’s where that character needs to be. It needs to be a level of darkness. I think if there’s any let up on that character, you do a disservice to the character, to every iteration of the character, to every comic book that’s come before, and to all the unbelievable fans of the character. This character means so much to people in the military. So like I said before, it’s not about whether you do the character; it’s about whether you can do it right, and I’m only interested in doing it right.”
Rumors say that there will be an announced at the D23 Expo 2022 about The Punisher getting a reboot series. In the meantime, the first two seasons of The Punisher are on Disney+ now to stream anytime you’d like!
