Also on the chopping block was Marvel's other Netflix series, The Punisher, which will end after two seasons. The show's star Jon Bernthal posted a message to his fans on social media as well.

"To all who have served. All who know loss. All who love and understand Frank and his pain. It has been an honor to walk in his boots," he writes. "I’m endlessly grateful to the comic fans and the men and women of the Armed Services and law enforcement community who Frank means so much to. Thank you to the USMC and all the wonderful soldiers who trained me. Go Hard. Be safe."
