From the walking dead to dead men walking, Jon Bernthal, actor on the The Walking Dead and Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Zombie series has now been recruited to fight the good fight on the second season of Marvel + Netflix’s Daredevil.
Who as? None other than the Punisher. Sorry Tom Hardy.
Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, hints that the punisher will be a game-changing variable to the volatile precarious melting pot that is Hell’s Kitchen:
“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. Castles appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
So friend or foe? Well we know the punisher loves guns, and given the new title logo for Daredevil Season 2 looks like it’s been through the OK Corral, we suspect the relationship between the two Marvel Knights will be abrasive at best, full on confrontational at worst. After all, Daredevil has a line he tip toes along. Castle will straight up kill mob bosses and their associates, in the comics anyway.
Netflix + Marvel’s Daredevil will be back for Season 2 in 2016
“Bernthal as the Punisher?! We see it. But what do you think. Will the relation even out? Will the Punisher be a reflection of what Murdock could become if he went unchecked? Let us know what you think in the comments below.”
