The cancellation of Netflix’s Daredevil was truly one of the most devastating news that Marvel fans ever heard, and they were all pretty mad about it too. But we’re back on track on the Daredevil train yet again with the series getting a new reboot, all thanks to Disney.

Daredevil: Born Again is the latest live-adaption of the comic book character and has also been confirmed to be a reboot of the Netflix version. The show will also be the eleventh installment of Phase Five for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And it has been freshly reported that the upcoming TV series will also feature a fan-favorite character from the Drew Goddard version from 2015.

The Jessica Jones TV series got some pretty rave reviews from critics after it was released in 2015. On the other hand, the Punisher was a fan-favorite character in Daredevil season two, with Punisher’s argument with Murdock in episode three being forever engraved in Marvel TV history as one of the most iconic scenes ever.

Here’s Twitter going crazy about the replacement of Jones with the Punisher, and they can not choose! –

This user hates Krysten Ritter’s character-

This user wants a cameo, at least-

This user is rejoicing at Jon Bernthal’s rumored return-

This fan is damn right-

Quite contradictory to use a Punisher GIF, no? –

Bernthal’s return as the Punisher would do wonders for the Daredevil reboot, but it’s important to not forget that his return is simply a rumor for now, and Jessica Jones still has her place in the TV series.
