    Huge news coming from Marvel's website today as Jon Bernthal was announced that he's joining the second season of Marvel's Daredevil and he's playing Frank Castle AKA The Punisher, the vigilante who wants to clean up New York City's Hell's Kitchen, even if that means killing people.

    Bernthal is known for his role as Shane on AMC's The Walking Dead as well as his role in Fury. The head of television of Marvel, Jeph Loeb, is excited about Bernthal coming to the show:

    “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... Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”

    No news yet when the second season will air yet, but we'll keep you updated.

    I hope it's a cameo appearance and he's not the main antagonist... The character needs his own spin-off series. Either way, this is great news!

    1. Of course he gets more shots. People actually know who he is.

    2. How do you know that Marvel doesn't have plans or is at least working on a way to introduce the characters you mentioned?

    Smart casting, Bernthal is well known by Walking Dead but not overly expensive. Man I am SO GLAD he isn't getting a TV show, Punisher is too flat a character to lead an 13 episode series. Still he's a good character to juxtapose and tempt DareDevil's heroisim.

    I'm guessing "Matt vs. Frank" is going to be a major theme.

    Shane does not the Punisher make.

    As for the storytelling of the show...I hope for some good Frank Castle moments. I trust his family (origin) is given far more focus than his rampant disregard for villain life.

    A rivalry with Daredevil seems natural, especially since it has a rich foundation in the comics.

    Why are you basing it off of one role? Watch Wolf of Wall Street, Mob City or Fury.

    @perfect_10: Most comic fans aren't even that familiar with Misty Knight or Photon. Punisher is a well-known, popular character. I think you're making this about race when it's really more about popularity.

    I have no interest in watching any of those things you listed, but point taken.
    :)

    The way I see Frank Castle is most likely different than how other fans do. He has been sadly reduced to a sadistic killing machine over the last few years. He's not just some smoldering badass who doesn't give two figs about what anyone thinks.

    The depth of the character needs more than macho bravado, a furrowed brow, and a grumpy scowl. He also needs to have a sensitive depth and the capacity to communicate the damaged interior & heartache that fuels his one-man war on crime.

    @flameboy298: The Punisher is a flat character, he kills people with guns thats about it. Other than casting a season with episodic adventures wherein he is Man with the No Name esque he's kind of tired and douer. How do you arch the action sequencing on a season of Punisher where you have to set a standard and go above or hit that every episode? It's a nightmare.

    The violence in DareDevil shifted in tone over the course of season 1 because ya know what seeing Matt torture people isn't very fun. You don't have that range with a character like Punisher.

    Why can´t Nicholas Cage play Punisher? He nailed him in Drive Angry...
