Silly question, of course they COULD, but will they? Kevin Feige is considering the idea.

With Punisher and now Daredevil under the umbrella of Marvel Studios, fans have wondered when they may see reboots for these characters in the same universe as the Avengers. So far though, Marvel has been hesitant to role out any R-rated movies, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige thinks TV may be the answer to that.
The Punisher movies that have been made were both very hard ‘R’s, and were in some places, unbelievably gory, to comedic effect, but I do think that what’s exciting about having all these avenues is that you can explore all the aspect of these characters. In the comics some of these characters are very, very dark, and while Marvel Studios haven’t done that necessarily, some of the Marvel movies, the Blade films, and the Punisher films – you look at The Walking Dead on AMC; that would be hard ‘r’ if that as a movie. So television does sometimes allow you to explore other aspects.
So what do you think? Superhero TV shows seem hit or miss, as do the properties mentioned even in movie form, but if handled right would make good additions to the Marvel Universe without crowding into the movie schedule.
