DAREDEVIL Adds THE WALKING DEAD’s Jon Bernthal as The Punisher For Season Two!


The live action Marvel Universe keeps expanding and just added a lot of lethal vigilante firepower. Jon Bernthal will join Netflix’s Daredevil next season as Frank Castle. The one and only Punisher is coming to Hell’s Kitchen.

Marvel announced The Walking Dead and The Wolf of Wall Street actor will appear in the runaway hit Netflix series sophomore season set to stream in 2016.



From Marvel:  

“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.”

  Bernthal is the fourth actor to play the violent vigilante. Three previous big screen versions starred Dolph Lundgren (1989), Thomas Jane (2004), and Ray Stevenson (2008) in the title role, and did not sit well with fans. Following the fantastic job done on season one of Daredevil, adding an armed vigilante willing to take things even further than Matt Murdock can only take the series to the next level.
