RUMOR: Casting For Microchip In THE PUNISHER Netflix Series Is Underway

While no official release has been given for The Punisher's solo outing on Netflix, it's now being rumored that casting is underway for one of the brutal vigilante's closest allies...

With the final moments of Daredevil season 2 teasing Microchip's presence in the MCU, it was generally assumed that the character would be making his way into the Punisher's life somehow. While we still have no official release date for the solo Punisher show, MCU Exchange is now reporting that casting for David “Microchip” Lieberman is officially underway, with the character being labelled with the fake casting name of "Dennis Landstrom".

The following is reported to be a rough transcript of the script being used for the audition.

Frank: You’re nervous
Micro: What, no I’m not, I’m not nervous, why would you even…
Frank: You keep checking your watch, but you’re not really checking the time, it’s a nervous tick. You might be good with computers and all, but you’d be shit with poker.
Micro: You’re early, I’m just a little surprised is all, I didn’t expect to find you here already.
Frank: Why were you here if you didn’t expect me to be here then?
Micro: Me? I’m always early. I make a point of it, I make sure to be where I have to be before I have to be there. (beat) So, you got the message.
Frank: I’m here.
Micro: Yeah well, You aren’t easy to find.
Frank: I’m not supposed to be found at all.
Micro: Desperate times call for desperate measures don’t they?
Frank: You got one minute, then I’m walking out the door and you won’t find me, I guarantee you.
Micro: Okay, okay I understand. Look, first of all, I wouldn’t, I wouldn’t contact you if I didn’t think that you could help.
Frank: Contacting me puts us both in danger. You could have been followed.
Micro: (Laughs) I wasn’t, trust me.
Frank: I don’t trust you, I don’t even know you. I should put a bullet in your head right here and now.
Micro: Okay, look, that would not be in your best interest.
Frank: Why wouldn’t it be?
Micro: Your just lucky that I’m a little smarter, and a little faster than them.
Frank: I’ll take my chances.
Micro: Look we are both in a world of trouble here. We can keep sleeping with one eye open the rest of our lives, or we can make a stand and stop them before they find us.
Frank: I don’t need you for that
Micro: What? We can help each other, we’re in the same boat, and yes you do need me
Frank: I don’t need anybody
Micro: You need answers, though, don’t you? I’m right, aren’t I? You have a lot of unanswered questions.
Frank: I don’t know what you’re talking about
Micro: I know that we’re after the same people, or I should say the same people are after us, which means that we are after the same people.
Frank: How do you know that?
Micro: It’s like you said, I’m good at computers, and the like. Look, friend, I know your story, and I know we can make things right again.
Frank: What do you want?
Micro: I want your help. I had a wife and kids, a family, and those bastards, they just took it away from me, and you know what that’s like, and I want my life back. As far as I can figure this is the only way to go about it, but I can’t do it alone. I know my limits, and I need your help.
Frank: I don’t know you, I don’t trust you. We’re out of time.
Micro: Does the name Nicholas Simon mean anything to you? (beat) He’s in town. I know where he is, and I know how to get to him.
Frank: Where is he?
Micro: Partners?
Frank: Tell me where he is.

Netflix's mobile app currently lists The Punisher with a 2017 release date, though this has not been officially confirmed. Who would you like to see in the role of Microchip? Sound off below!
