The tricky part will be developing a supporting cast. By the very nature of his mission he tends to be a loner, but they can't sustain 13 episodes without him having people to interact with. Punisher also doesn't have a rogues gallery because he just immediately shoots his villains in the face. Who else is there besides Jigsaw?

The Gnucci crime family is the main one I think of. But other than the head of the family "MA" they are all just faceless mobsters.

The Russian is another one, but despite being a cool character, he is also usually just a one and done, as Frank kills him as soon as he pops up.

Either use Welcome Back Frank, Slavers or Barracuda...BAM! Or even Circle of Blood...

And as far as supporting cast, just use the Supernatural/Quantum Leap formula: give him 2-3 solid costars and feature a different group of supporting characters (minor villains, people he's helping, cops, etc) for each mini-arc. You could essentially fit 4 mini-arcs in 13 episodes and finish with a 13th episode that concludes a long simmering major plot.

As long as he has the Battle Van and refers to it by name, I'll be happy with this series.
Take it from me -- One doesn't become Gomurr the Ancient by keeping one's eyes clenched shut. First and foremost, you have to be named Gomurr. Then you have to get really, really old.

They could pull from different character's rogues galleries to be fair. Taskmaster, Ghost, Tombstone, The Hood, Grey Gargoyle, Foolkiller and Hammerhead. you could also introduce Paladin, Silver Sable, Moon Knight etc. There are a lot of these street level heroes/villains that could be done.

But how many of those are owned by Sony? Tombstone and Hammerhead I think of as definitely Spider-Man characters. But then again Kingpin was originally a Spider-Man character but Marvel claims him under Daredevil.

And since Marvel has a deal with Sony it's entirely possible they can use some of the thug-like villains.

I'm not sure if the deal involves television. Actually come to think of it Marvel has always used Spider-Man in its cartoons so evidently animation is a completely separate thing. This rights stuff is confusing.

Well regardless, I hope they stick in super powered individuals for the Punisher to fight as Mafia goons are not my cup of tea. I am sure we will get a few of them but I hope we diversify a bit.

Isn't Kingpin originally a Daredevil villain that was loaned to Spider-Man for the cartoon? Then he was sent back to Daredevil for the movie and came over when the rights reverted back?

Edit: Nope, originally Spider-Man. Loaned to Fox for Daredevil and then somehow reverted back to Marvel. That one is kind of weird. He may be with Sony, but with the Spider-Man deal and him obviously being in Daredevil it's a moot point.

Techically two shows and a mini-series I think. JJ season 2 and DD season 3 should hit in 2018. Maybe they will have a second season of Luke Cage chucked in that year as well.
