Netflix and Marvel have announced that they have cancelled their scheduled panel for “The Punisher” from New York Comic Con on Friday. All promotional videos so far have shown heavy gun use in the show and after the events in Las Vegas this week it was deemed that it would be inappropriate to go ahead.
We are stunned and saddened by this week’s senseless act in Las Vegas. After careful consideration, Netflix and Marvel have decided it wouldn’t be appropriate for Marvel’s The Punisher to participate in New York Comic Con. Our thoughts continue to be with the victims and those affected by this tragedy.
The question now being asked is will this affect the premiere date, which is still unknown. Recent rumours were that they would launch the series shortly after showing the first episode at NYCC.
