Showrunner Steve Lightfoot has commented on the whereabouts of Micro in The Punisher season two, as the character was completely absent.
In season two of The Punisher, the character Micro, who played a main role in the first season, was nowhere to be seen. Portrayed by Ebon Moss-Bachrach, David “Micro” Lieberman was Frank’s closest ally through much of the season and one would have thought that would continue in season two.
The character doesn’t turn up at all, however, leading many to wonder just where he could have been. Giving his thoughts on what Micro was up to during season two’s events, showrunner Steve Lightfoot told ComicBook.com:
“You know my answer to it, and it’s partly because he’s still alive there and I would love to go revisit him. I sort of, and this maybe just my own dark heart, I sort of feel like he tried the marriage, and after everything he put his family through, it didn’t stick. I always feel like when we find him again, he’ll be some sort of bathroom in a pool of spilled whiskey, waiting for Frank to come pick him up and put him to work again.”
In response to being asked if he thought Micro went back to hacking, Lightfoot said: “Yeah. I think, because, look, it’s like any of these characters, Micro who’s happiest home with his family. There isn’t a lot of story to tell for him, but I think a Micro who is living underground, and using his skills, and part of the underworld, is a great character to go back and find.”
