Fans will rejoice to find out that the Punisher has been confirmed to appear in the second season of the hit Netflix series, Daredevil. While some fans might be disappointed that fan favorite Thomas Jane will not be returning to the role; an intense and tough actor will be taking the reigns of the mean vigilante. That man is none other than... Jon Bernthal.
While most people will recognize Jon from The Walking Dead where he portrayed Rick Grimes' best friend turned enemy Shane Walsh; others will recognize him from such films as Snitch, Fury and Wolf of Wall Street. Jon has proven that he can handle to tough and intimating roles and Marvel's Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, was very excited about the casting choice and had this to say:
"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.”
There have been three attempts and failures at this Marvel Anti-Hero in the matters of movies, so let's hope that Jon Bernthal can bring the character some well needed justice when season 2 of Daredevil is released in April of 2016.
