Daredevil Casts Punisher

Marvel's Daredevil Casts Punisher!

By: Dave Clark

Just days after the rumors of Jason Statham was in talks to play Bullseye for the upcoming second season of Marvel's Daredevil, a rumor that has since been denied by Statham himself, we get news that Frank Castle has been cast! Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, Fury) will portray The Punisher in the critically acclaimed Netflix series when it returns in 2016.

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.

In the recent past we've seen two incarnations of The Punisher on the big screen. Played by both Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. He was also portrayed by Dolph Lundgren back in the late 80's. Are you guys excited to see Punisher back in the MCU?
