'The Punisher' Cancels Comic Con Appearance After Las Vegas Shooting

The Punisher will no longer be appearing at New York Comic Con.

Following the horrific shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday (October 1) that left over 50 people dead, Netflix and Marvel issued a joint statement confirming that the Daredevil spin-off series would not be appearing as planned.

“We are stunned and saddened by this week’s senseless act in Las Vegas. After careful consideration, Netflix and Marvel have decided it wouldn’t be appropriate for Marvel’s The Punisher to participate in New York Comic Con. Our thoughts continue to be with the victims and those affected by this tragedy,” the two companies announced.

The bloody official trailer for the series, released in September, depicts intense gunfire and violence.

    good decision. now if only they’d stop producing their similar punisher-type graphic novels that show just as much violence right on the front cover and naked blown up bodies on every interior page.

    that’s a great idea. let’s sensor everything anyone could find offensive.

    it’s not offensive, it’s violent. offensive is a bad word. violent is that film and they are censoring themselves by not going, right? what does that tell you? they know it’s wrong, what they put out there. happy books and movies make people happy. violent books and movies make people… like you

    “violent books and movies make people like me?” wow … you made a huge assumption there. i am actually a very thoughtful well adjusted non violent person. it’s not a matter of right or wrong. they know they will be attacked in the media by the minority of vocal nutcases. comic books don’t make people violent … real world trauma does, not ink and paper.
