We all thought it was going to be Bullseye (and maybe it still is), but Marvel threw us a curveball today by announcing the casting of Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, the Punisher! He’s going to clash with Daredevil in season 2 next year!
This is pretty exciting news! We were all hoping that Punisher would show up on Netflix. He’s perfect for his own gritty, hard-hitting series! So maybe his appearance next year could be a backdoor pilot for his own show! That would be great beyond imagining!
As long as they just film Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX…
As for Bernthal, I’m sure he’ll be fine in the role. I really only know him from the first season of The Walking Dead, where he played Shane. But that was like four or five years ago, so I don’t remember anything about him. But I’m sure he’ll do fine!
