Jon Bernthal as The Punisher

Our hopes for some more Marvel characters popping up in the second season of ‘Daredevil’ have been answered as Frank Castle will be showing up to punish Hell’s Kitchen’s criminals.

The Punisher has been played onscreen by Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson, but Marvel has made its best choice yet with the announcement that Jon Bernthal is going to be playing Frank Castle in the second season of ‘Daredevil.’

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.”

The Punisher vs DaredevilBernthal has been a favorite rising star of mine since his work on ‘The Walking Dead’ and I’ve loved his work in supporting roles such as ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ ‘Grudge Match‘ and ‘Snitch.’ his stock is going to soar even further with this role as a pivotal Marvel character.
