Jon Bernthal Cast As The Punisher In Marvel’s Daredevil
Netflix’s “Daredevil” has its Punisher and it’s Jon Bernthal!
With the success of Marvel’s Daredevil, many have been wondering when other dormant properties would appear. Well today according Marvel.com we have our Punisher and it’s “The Walking Dead’s” Jon Bernthal!
Bernthal will portray The Punisher, one of Marvel’s most popular characters. He is a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.
The Punisher has been a franchise character that has continuously failed in Marvel films. But while this character has seen failure so did Daredevil until the recent release of the Netflix series and I think that Marvel is hoping for that same success to come to the Punisher.
So on to the next point…the casting. I love Jon Bernthal being cast as the Punisher! He was one of my favorite characters on “The Walking Dead” and his aggressive nature should fit well into the role of Frank Castle. I think this may be the first time that we see a well executed Punisher!
