Marvel Pulls Punisher Panel From New York Comic Con After Las Vegas Shooting

Probably not a good idea to promote guns and violence so soon after.

Marvel has canceled its October 7 panel for The Punisher at New York Comic Con, following the shooting in Las Vegas earlier this week. The panel was scheduled to run 5:15-6:15 PM Saturday at The Theater at Madison Square Garden and featured Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb and lead actor Jon Bernthal.

"We are stunned and saddened by this week's senseless act in Las Vegas," Netflix and Marvel said in a joint statement today. "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 companies added of the gun and violence heavy Jon Bernthal starring series. "Our thoughts continue to be with the victims and those affected by this tragedy."

The 13-episode show was recently teased without giving a release date. NYCC supports Netflix and Marvel's decision and is currently trying to fill the spot with another panel. How about an Outhouse panel?
