After the iconic skull symbol found itself at the center of some controversy in recent years, Marvel Comics has unveiled the new symbol that will be sported by The Punisher, a.k.a Frank Castle, going forward.

The new logo will feature in the upcoming 13-issue “prestige limited series” Punisher, which will be written by Avengers scribe Jason Aaron and drawn by Jesús Saiz and Paul Azaceta, according to MarvelThe series is set to debut in March of 2022.

Following the release of the first-look image, fans of the iconic Marvel vigilante took to Twitter to share their thoughts about Castle’s new look.

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe now looping Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin into the fray — hopefully, they cross paths again, too — calls for the return of Jon Bernthal’s widely popular Frank Castle will surely follow. Bernthal featured as Punisher in the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil and in a singular season of his own feature series.

Of all of the characters that debuted in the collaboration between Marvel Studios and Netflix a few years ago, to the delight of fans, two of the three worth salvaging have been officially resurrected, so there’s no reason to believe the MCU won’t do something similar when it comes to Bernthal’s Punisher. Fingers crossed.
