Hell yeah!! Marvel has announced that Jon Bernthal (Wolf of Wall Street, The Walking Dead, Fury) has landed a role on the second season of ‘Daredevil,’ streaming on Netflix in 2016. Bernthal will play Frank Castle, aka The Punisher.
Marvel’s character description:
One of Marvel’s most popular characters. He is a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.
Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb on casting Bernthal:
“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.”
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. “Marvel’s Daredevil” stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and Rosario Dawson.
Executive Produced by Doug Petrie, Marco Ramirez and Drew Goddard, along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb. Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
