Netflix, Marvel Cancel 'The Punisher' New York Comic-Con Premiere After Las Vegas Shooting

Marvel confirmed this week that the new TV show The Punisher, a TV show featuring a gun-toting main character, has been pulled out of New York Comic-Con after the Las Vegas Shooting. In a joint statement, Netflix and Marvel said they 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," the statement goes on (via Deadline). "Our thoughts continue to be with the victims and those affected by this tragedy."

According to Digital Chew, Stephen Paddock fired from a 32nd-floor hotel room window on Sunday during a Vegas country music concert. The gunman killed at least 58 people and injured hundreds more in what is the deadliest shooting in modern history.
