‘Punisher’ cancels Paris, N.Y. events after Vegas
Netflix has canceled twin Saturday events intended to promote its new Marvel series “The Punisher,” in the wake of Sunday’s Las Vegas shooting massacre.
The streaming titan and the Disneyowned studio said that it was canceling a Paris event called “Nuit Noire (Black Night)” at the Cirque d’Hiver monument, Variety reported Thursday morning.
The news comes one day after the entertainment partners announced the cancellation of the “Punisher” panel planned for New York Comic-Con, which kicked off Thursday.
The dark and violent tales of Marvel’s the Punisher, introduced in the comics four decades ago, center on combat veteran turned vigilante Frank Castle and his weapon-heavy thirst for revenge after his family is gunned down in New York.
Jon Bernthal stars as Frank Castle in Netflix’s “Marvel’s The Punisher.
