DAREDEVIL: Jon Bernthal Joins Second Season As The Punisher
The Punisher has had his share of representation in the world of moving pictures. The Dolph, Thomas Jane and Ray Stephenson have all had a go at it. Tom Hardy says he wants to play the character in any upcoming Marvel film. I like this choice of casting because Bernthal bears a striking resemblance to the Frank Castle from the pencil work that John Romita Jr. did in the Punisher War Zone comic book (of which many issues sit somewhere in my parents' house)
"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," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. "Castle's appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same. Deadline
There is no word yet as to how many episodes Frank Castle will be in.
