Finally, my prayers have been answered. The Punisher has been cast for Season 2 of Daredevil. Many of my readers know that this is one of the moves that I have been begging for from Marvel for a long time coming, and now it’s here. The Punisher is joining the MCU.
Jon Bernthal, known widely to most from his roll on the Walking Dead, will be playing Frank Castle in Season 2 of Daredevil.
The Punisher is one of the longest running anti-heroes in Marvel. He fights crime without the moral constraints of his fellow heroes. He is one of my most beloved characters of all time, and we will be seeing him next year in Daredevil season 2.
I’ll be writing more on this implications for Daredevil season 2 and the rest of the MCU, but for now, only time will tell.
