As we all know, The Punisher is making his way to Daredevil next season. A few weeks ago, it was announced that Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) would play the skull-obsessed vigilante. However, apart from these few tidbits of information, there has been very little else revealed about what will happen next season.
However, according to a report, new showrunner, Marco Ramirez, has described season 2 as Daredevil vs. The Punisher. The article goes on to say that The Punisher is actually the main villain of the season, in the same way The Kingpin was for the first.
Before progressing, it is worth taking these articles with a slight grain of salt. However, with that being said, this news does make sense. In the comics Daredevil and The Punisher share a strange relationship. Daredevil views The Punisher as what he very easily could become if he went one-step to far.
The two share a long history of battling throughout the comics and, in some cases, helping one another. However, given that Marvel will probably want to spin The Punisher off into his own series, I do not see The Punisher being the villain throughout.
I feel that if he was going to appear, it would be something closer to The Atom on this series of Arrow, a character that comes and goes throughout the story, with the intention of spinning him off.
With all of this in mind, this is just speculation, but it is fun to think that we will get to see The Punisher in live action… and not have it be terrible.
