Jon Bernthal of The Walking Dead has been announced as the Punisher for the upcoming season two of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. The actor has been widely cited for his high level of intensity, which is very fitting for the role.
The Punisher’s first official appearance was back in 1974 in issue 129 of The Amazing Spider-Man. After the death of his family at the hands of the Mafia and being unable to testify in court due to corruption, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Unlike the more humane Daredevil, the Punisher has no qualms with the use of murderous brutality to achieve his goals.
Look forward to seeing the Punisher in 2016 with Daredevil Season 2!
