With everyone talking about Jessica Jones, which launched on Netflix yesterday, and the upcoming Luke Cage series, it was only natural that Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada would talk about Daredevil Season 2 and specifically, Jon Bernthal’s debut as Frank Castle AKA Punisher.

Come on, seriously, who isn’t excited for that?! Anyway, chatting to IGN, Quesada said Bernthal is doing outstanding work: “Anyone who is a hardcore Punisher fan is going to be blown away and incredibly satisfied by Bernthal’s take on Frank Castle. It’s one of those cases where it’s the character from the pages come to life.”

He also dismissed the rumours that the Iron Fist series WASN’T happening (here) as well as explaining why/how there can be such dark corners of the Marvel universe; so it seems it’s all good in the MCU TV universe after all…

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….
