Marvel has announced that a star from another popular comic book TV adaptation will be a part of Daredevil Season 2 on Netflix.
Jon Bernthal, who played Shane Walsh in the early seasons of AMC’s The Walking Dead, has been cast as Frank Castle.
Yes, that Frank Castle. The Punisher. A character who has tangled with Daredevil on numerous occasions in the comics.
Marvel.com’s take on the character as seen in Daredevil is that “he 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.”
“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 Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, in a statement. “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
Daredevil Season 2 is coming our way in 2016.
