Jon Bernthal, of“The Walking Dead” fame, will be joining the cast for the upcoming season of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” streaming on Netflix in 2016! Though, it has not yet been indicated whether Bernthal’s Punisher will be a friend or foe to series’ hero. But if the bullet riddled logo for season two is any indication, I would guess the latter. But who knows for sure.
Bernthal will portray Frank Castle/The Punisher, a relentless vigilante whose sole mission is to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary.
“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,” states 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.”
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is Executive Produced by Doug Petrie (“American Horror Story,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), Marco Ramirez (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “DaVinci’s Demons”) and Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods,” “Lost”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”)
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios. Season one of “Marvel’s Daredevil” is now streaming on Netflix.
