Marvel's The Punisher Series Reportedly Casting Microchip!

Marvel's The Punisher is in search of an actor to portray Microchip!

Earlier this year, John Bernthal blew us all away with his outstanding performance as Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, in the second season of Marvel's Daredevil. And within just two and a half months of his debut as the iconic anti-hero, Netflix officially ordered a standalone series for the character, with Steve Lightfoot as its showrunner.

According to a recent report (more of a speculation, actually), Marvel's The Punisher would arrive in 2017. But MCU Exchange reports that the series is likely to enter production shortly after the second season of Marvel's Jessica Jones. That means that the series won't be coming until 2018.

However, that's not the highlight of their report. According to the website, Marvel's The Punisher is "already well underway" with its casting. The series is looking for an actor to portray David Lieberman, aka Microchip.

Created by Mike Baron and introduced in the November 1987 issue The Punisher Vol. 2 #4, Microchip has served as an ally to Frank Castle over the course of time. He is depicted as a skilled hacker, mechanic, and weapons expert, who has assisted the anti-hero using his fields of expertise.

He also provides him with advice and guidance just as any friend would. However, in more recent publications, we have seen Microchip gradually evolve into an antagonist.

Despite even getting an audition script featuring a conversation between The Punisher and Microchip, the website fails to offer any solid details regarding the version of the character in the upcoming Netflix series. The script isn't too revealing.

Even if Microchip appears in Marvel's The Punisher, it won't be the first live-action appearance for the character. Wayne Knight portrayed him in Lexi Alexander's 2008 flick Punisher: War Zone. Jonathan Hensleigh's 2004 flick, The Punisher, included Microchip in one of its early drafts, but the role was eventually excised.
