Jon Bernthal looks totally badass in full Punisher armour…

August 21st, 2017 by Marc Comments

With The Defenders arriving last weekend, we got the first teaser for The Punisher series (here) and now we have this pretty damned awesome picture of the main man himself.

The image features Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle AKA The Punisher as he’ll appear in the standalone Netflix series

He first appeared in the second season of Daredevil and was an instant hit so it was only a matter of time before he got his own series as he was a big hit.

His appearance in that show directly referenced his backstory where he was an ex-Marine and family man whose family were murdered after things went wrong when he tried to stop a drug lord, sending Castle into a murderous rage that has led to him becoming the one-man army, force for good and anti-hero.

Bernthal will star alongside Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Amber Rose Revah, Deborah Ann Woll, Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman, and Michael Nathanson.

The Punisher is expected to debut on Netflix in 2018.

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….
