Marvel has officially announced that they’ve cast The Walking Dead and Fury star Jon Bernthal in the role of Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher in Daredevil Season 2!
Marvel describes him as “a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.” Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb adds:
“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.”
