Jon Bernthal Cast in Daredevil Season Two

The Punisher will be roaming the streets of Hell's Kitchen on Daredevil next season in the form of former Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal. And anyone who has seen Bernthal on Dead (or the slew of other shows and films that had him playing a tough do-what-it-takes guy) can see this is a perfect bit of 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," said Marvel TV czar Jeph Loeb, explaining that Frank Castle (The Punisher's real name) will be on hand to shake-up Matt Murdock's worldview in season two. The second season of Daredevil will be coming to Netflix in the spring of 2016, after the upcoming launches of AKA Jessica Jones (set for later this year) and Luke Cage (set for early 2016). Still in the pipeline are Iron Fist and the combo series The Defenders, which will employ all four heroes from the other stand alone shows.
