Punisher Netflix Teaser

Punisher's Sidekick Will be Featured in the Netflix Series

"The Punisher" in Marvel Comics always relies on his friend and ally Microchip for weapons, high-tech gadgets and cyber intelligence. One of the characters included in the upcoming "The Punisher" show is Dennis Landstrom; however, this name is rumored to be a mere placeholder to hide Microchip's real identity, according to MCU Exchange. For now, the actor who will play the Microchip role is still a mystery.

Frank Castle Netflix Version Different From the Marvel Version

"The Punisher" actor Jon Bernthal said that the upcoming Netflix is more of an origin story and quite different from the Frank Castle in the "Daredevil" TV series.

"The Punisher" is looking for payback and is ready to lash out at anyone he believes is responsible for the murder of his loved ones.
