Matt Murdock will return for a second season of Daredevil, only this time he won’t be the only vigilante in Hell’s Kitchen. The other one will be a bit more… Punishing.
That’s right, The Punisher will be joining the MCU in the Netflix series Daredevil, and he’ll be played by Jon Bernthal. Bernthal played Shane in the first two seasons of The Walking Dead before his character was (FINALLY) killed off. He seems like a decent choice for the role of Frank Castle, lets just hope he isn’t quite as irritating as he was on The Walking Dead or we’ll have to send Carl in to finish him off again.
Marvel Television describe The Punisher as “a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.”. Pretty standard, but we know who he is already. They’ve already tried and failed to bring Castle to the big screen several times, hopefully he works out on the small screen.
Daredevil season 2 will begin streaming on Netflix sometime next year.
