While the actress, soon to be seen in the Disney+ Star Wars series Ahsoka, is no stranger to blockbuster franchises and their love of secrecy, she recently got a bit ahead of herself in sharing some big Marvel news.
"I found out yesterday that The Punisher was happening again so I feel like it's my second chance," Dawson said during an appearance at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo Aug. 7. "It's the only one of the shows that I wasn't in and I love Jon Bernthal so let's all make it happen collectively, guys."
There's just one problem—the show isn't actually getting a revival (yet).
Later that night, Dawson realized the error of her ways, tweeting: "I can't be trusted…! Getting intel from fans during signings is iffy apparently. My bad. I get excited. Confirmation is key when you're told what you want to hear…"
The Punisher was canceled in 2019 after running for two seasons on Netflix.
Alas, her long-awaited on-screen foray with Frank Castle will have to wait—at least for now.
Rumors of a revival of The Punisher have been percolating for a while, especially in the wake of the news that Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio will reprise their Daredevil roles for a new Disney+ series titled Daredevil: Born Again.
Dawson is also set to appear in the new Daredevil show, which she said came with a lot at stake.
"We definitely felt the pressure, but we really enjoyed just bringing our all to it," she said at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. "The fight sequences were really fun. There was this beautiful intimacy, we just had a really, really good time."
While we cross our fingers that an official Punisher announcement is ahead, get your Dawson fix when Ahsoka hits Disney+ sometime in 2023 and Daredevil: Born Again arrives in spring 2024.
