Does The Casting of Jon Bernthal as The Punisher in Season 2 of Daredevil Add More Credibility to A Netflix Series?
So this just happened! Jon Bernthal has just been annoucned as The Punisher for season 2 of Daredevil, and going by the logo they put out with the announcement, Frank Castle is not going to be looking for hugs and handshakes with ‘Horn Head’. But does this mean that a Punisher Netflix series is going to happen?
It doesn’t confirm it, but it sure does lend some credibility to the rumor now. BJ and I talked about this on Episode 20 of Geek Show, and we thought the rumor was pretty solid. Speaking for myself, I’m even more sure now that it will happen. Netflix is the perfect place for a Punisher show to be able to showcase the Frank Castle we all know from the comics.
The casting of Bernthal in my opinion is a good move. He’s got the chops. I think he’s going to be awesome as The Punisher. I would have liked Thomas Jane to come back and do the role, but this is still a good solid casting call. What do you think about this? Does this confirm Marvel is going to green light a Punisher series now?
