Fans of the Punisher are anticipating the character’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Season 2 of Daredevil, as portrayed by former The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal.

IGN caught up to Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quasada and to find out what’s in store for Frank Castle. Could a spinoff series be in his future?

“I think we’d love to see something happen, but it’s way too soon to tell, and we don’t necessarily like to discuss which metrics we use to decide these things,” Quesada said. “But what I can tell you is anyone who is a hardcore Punisher fan is going to be blown away and incredibly satisfied by Bernthal’s take on Frank Castle. It’s one of those cases where it’s the character from the pages come to life.”

Daredevil Season 2 premiers on Netflix in 2016.
