Fans waiting for news about Netflix’s The Punisher may soon get some information about the upcoming series. News sources interpret that the Daredevil promo could be a hint acknowledging The Punisher.
The official social media accounts for Marvel’s Daredevil recently shared a photo of a disc with the word ‘Micro’ on it. On Twitter, the photo bore the caption “Seek and you shall find” while the Instagram post reads, “There’s a storm comin’.” Meanwhile, the caption for the photo on Facebook said, “Tomorrow’s answers are hidden in the past.”
According to Screen Rant, a mention of Micro has a significance to The Punisher. The source explains the connection below:
“Micro is a nod to a character in the comics named David Lieberman, a hacker and longtime ally of The Punisher who goes by the aliases Micro and Microchip. Last fall, Ebon Moss-Bachrach was cast as Micro for The Punisher, and is listed in 13 episodes on IMDB. With this tease from Daredevil, it seems like we might be getting more information soon.”
Consequently, fans who took time to comment also shared their insights on Daredevil‘s posts. While many were simply asking when Daredevil season 3 would drop, some people who left comments also got the Punisher connection. Facebook user Jacob Howard surmised that the posting of the photo and the quote is a clue to a Punisher reveal some time today.
However, it is important to note that these are just theories from fans. People should still wait for an official announcement from Marvel and Netflix.
Punisher and Other Upcoming Marvel Shows on Netflix
Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle/Punisher debuted on Marvel’s Daredevil season 1. The character, though initially meant to be a supporting part, earned the love of fans. This led to character getting his own spin-off series.
