The streets of Marvel are about to get PUNISHED and who best to do it? How about “The Walking Dead’s” most badass actor of all time!! Jon Bernthal!
Jon Bernthal who is best known for his role as Shane in “The Walking Dead” TV series from AMC, and his other roles in “Snitch” with the Rock and “Fury” with Brad Pitt and Shia Labeouf, is now the new Marvel man. Jon is joining the superhero ranks with the upcoming season 2 of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” streaming exclusively only on Netflix in 2016 by playing The Punisher!
Bernthal will play The Punisher, Marvel’s most famous but ruthless anti-hero characters. Frank Castle, “The Punisher,” is a vigilante who cleans up the grimy crime infested streets of New York City by any means necessary; no matter how deadly his results end up becoming and upsetting to all other Marvel Heroes and Villains alike! To put it simply…..The Punisher is Marvel’s most BADASS MOTHERF$%#@ER!!
“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.” – said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television.
Don’t miss out on the Netflix-only exclusive show “Marvel’s Daredevil” which 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.”)
I will also put a guess that The Punisher and Daredevil will join the cast of other Marvel movies that involve huge character fights like Captain America 3: Civil War and The Avengers: Infinity War movies also. This is my guess, nothing has been confirmed by anyone of this course of action happening in Marvel Studios……just yet that is.
