We’ve been wondering if/when Netflix were going to reboot The Punisher and today it’s been announced that Jon Bernthal has joined the cast of the second season of the Marvel series Daredevil as Frank Castle.
The Hollywood Reporter states: “The Walking Dead alum Jon Bernthal has landed a killer role on the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil.
Bernthal has been tapped to portray Marvel favorite The Punisher on the series starring Charlie Cox, Marvel announced Tuesday. While series regular vs. recurring details are being kept close to the vest, Bernthal will have what is said to be a big presence on the series.
On Daredevil, the Punisher is a vigilante who aims to clean up New York’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results. The character is also known as Frank Castle, a martial arts master and U.S. military war veteran who is an expert with a variety of weapons and guerrilla warfare.”
Are you happy with this choice?
