Producer Drew Goddard seemed excited to add The Punisher to the mix: Goddard felt that television was the best fit for the character, as the writers are “able to do things on the small screen that fit that character better than if we had to water him down for the movies.” New showrunner on Daredevil, Doug Petrie stated that Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver was an influence on the character, as well as current events. “Taking lethal justice into your own hands in America in 2015 is tricky shit. We have not shied away from the rich complicated reality of Now. If you’ve got a gun and you’re not the police you’re going to incite strong feelings. We’re stirring the pot and we’re aware of the headlines where we live and we’re trying to get people to think.”
