One of the many fan desires in regards to new characters for Daredevil Season 02 was Punisher, aka Frank Castle. A character known for a particular brand of justice. Well, fans can consider this wish granted, cause Jon Bernthal has been cast as Punisher for Daredevil.
“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.”
It’s unclear as of now as to what and how Punisher will clash with Daredevil, and if the two will become allies as the season goes on, but we’ll no doubt get new information on such matters soon.
