Early screenings for Captain Marvel have left people in awe for the upcoming instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Punisher and more Marvel TV Shows likely to return:
Deep down, we all knew it was coming. Netflix has confirmed that Marvel’s The Punisher has been cancelled and the upcoming third season of Jessica Jones will be the last. This comes after Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist were confirmed to have been cancelled.
HOWEVER: there is still hope for these characters and their stories. Jeph Loeb in a statement, hinted that this may not be the end: “Our Network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters… but you know Marvel better than that.” So it’s looking very likely that Marvel aren’t ready to let go of these characters just yet. The chances are, the shows will be moved over to the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.
