Bernthal Cast As The Punisher On “Daredevil”

“The Walking Dead” and “Fury” star Jon Bernthal has joined the cast of Marvel and Netflix’s “Daredevil” series in the iconic role of Frank Castle (aka The Punisher).

In the show, The Punisher 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 character will make his first appearance in the soon to shoot second season of the series.

Ray Stevenson, Thomas Jane and Dolph Lundgren have played previous big screen versions of the character which were produced by other studios. The rights to The Punisher reverted back to Marvel Studios several years ago.
