‘Walking Dead’ Alum Jon Bernthal Cast as Punisher in Season 2 of Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’


By Brian Ives

Netflix gave Marvel the chance to reboot and redeem the Daredevil franchise, and the recently released 13-episode series more than made up for the universally panned 2003 film that saw Ben Affleck in the starring role. (Indeed, Marvel seemed to wipe their memory of it rather quickly. Jon Favreau, who played the supporting role of Foggy Nelson in that film, later played Happy Hogan in the Iron Man franchise.)

Now it seems like they are going to atone for the atrocities of the 2004 and 2008 Punisher films (The Punisher and Punisher: War Zone, respectively).  Marvel has just announced that they’ve cast Jon Bernthal  as Frank Castle, the man who becomes the Punisher, in the second season of Daredevil. Bernthal’s roles include, among others, the character Shane in early seasons of The Walking Dead.
