Turns out rapper Eminem and myself have something in common…we are both currently unhappy with Netflix. Mathers made his grievances known through a tweet aimed at the streaming service for cancelling what is apparently one of his favorite shows to binge, The Punisher.
Netflix made the official announcement that they were cancelling The Punisher and Jessica Jones earlier this week after previously announcing their cancellations of their other Marvel series Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. As of now, the shows will remain on Netflix to be streamed.
There are lots of rumors that the shows may be revived on the upcoming Disney+ app. Disney owns Marvel, so the cancellations have not come to a surprise to most Marvel fans, except for Eminem.
After the cancellation announcement, The Punisher actor, Jon Bernthal made the following statement on Instagram:

To all who have served. All who know loss. All who love and understand Frank and his pain. It has been an honor to walk in his boots. I’m endlessly grateful to the comic fans and the men and women of the Armed Services and law enforcement community who Frank means so much to. Thank you to the USMC and all the wonderful soldiers who trained me. Go Hard. Be safe.
