Jon Bernthal Joins Daredevil Season Two As The Punisher

After rumours of Bullseye, Mysterio and Elektra in season two of Daredevil, here comes some more concrete news that - judging by the internet reaction - has delighted fans; Jon Bernthal has been cast as the Punisher and will appear in the second season on Netflix next year.

Bernthal will be familiar to fans of The Walking Dead, playing Rick Grime's friend / antagonist Shane Walsh for the first two seasons. He also appeared in Frank Darabont's Mob City following their departures from the zombie show.

There is no news on whether Frank Castle / the Punisher will be an ally or enemy of Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock / Daredevil, at least not at first. Castle's violent vigilantism will sure to add an explosive mix to the Hell's Kitchen of this Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios’ Jeph Loeb said about this casting: “Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences. Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.

In other less dramatic, but still Marvel/Netflix related news, the second series to follow Daredevil has simplified its name. Aka Jessica Jones will now simply go by the name of Jessica Jones and is expected to air on Netflix later this year.
