One of the most popular Marvel comics characters is coming to Daredevil, as The Punisher is officially confirmed for season 2!
Marvel made the announcement today that Jon Bernthal of The Walking Dead fame will be playing Frank Castle in the second season of the Netflix series:
Bernthal will portray The Punisher, one of Marvel’s most popular characters. He is a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.
“Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
And with that, Daredevil has just become my favorite show of all time.
