Here’s some free advice. Start putting in some major face time for now through the end of the month because you’ll want to have a free schedule come March. The NCAA tournament almost guarantees a certain lack of sleep and not to mention Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Netflix is upping the ante with the return of Marvel’s Daredevil featuring the introduction of The Punisher.
As this trailer reveals, Jon Bernthal’s take on Frank Castle looks to be a perfect fit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Netflix and Marvel Studios are already so enthusiastic that a Punisher spin-off has been greenlit.
I’ve been a fan of Bernthal since The Walking Dead and have been waiting on someone to really give him a showcase role. There’s little to suggest this won’t become his career-defining work here and I can’t wait. Even if that wasn’t enough to have me stoked for Season 2 is the reveal of Elektra played by Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe Retaliation).
Season 2 starts March 18. Better start sleeping now.
