The Punisher standalone series, which is currently in preproduction at Netflix, has added another actor to its line-up.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and Westworld star Ben Barnes will join Jon Bernthal and is rumoured to play criminal mastermind Bobby Saint

Saint was played by James Carpinello in the Thomas Jane Punisher movie.

We’re also hearing that the next big bit of casting will be David ‘Microchip’ Lieberman, who, in the comics goes by the name Micro and supplies Punisher with all his tech and weapons and was hinted at at the end of Daredevil Season 2.

We’ll keep you posted as and when we hear more, true believers.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
