New York Comic Con's planned Saturday panel about Marvel/Netflix's The Punisher has been cancelled in light of the Las Vegas shootings earlier this week.

“We 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,” said Netflix and Marvel in a joint statement. "Our thoughts continue to be with the victims and those affected by this tragedy."

The Punisher is expected to be released sometime in 2017, although the specific date has been kept under wraps by the companies involved.
