Earlier this week, Netflix cancelled its Marvel Cinematic Universe series The Punisher after two seasons. Among the more notable fans vocal about the series' ending has been Academy Award and Grammy Award-winning rapper Marshall Mathers, better known as Eminem.
In a post on his Twitter account, Mathers penned an angry message to Netflix, calling out the premium streaming service for cancelling the series.
DEAR @NETFLIX,— Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) February 21, 2019
REGARDING YOUR CANCELLATION OF THE PUNISHER, YOU ARE BLOWING IT!!
A longtime fan of the Marvel Comics character, Eminem starred in 2009 digital comic Eminem/The Punisher by Fred Van Lente and Salvador Larroca. The comic saw the two figures come to blows before realizing they had a common enemy in the popular Punisher villain Barracuda.
News of the MCU series' cancellation was announced earlier this week, with the live-action series cancelled together with Jessica Jones ahead of the latter's third season premiere.
The Punisher Season 2 stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle, Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim, Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont and Giorgia Whigham as Amy Bendix. Both seasons of the show, along with all its sister series, are now streaming on Netflix.
