Netflix’s season two of Daredevil will feature Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, otherwise known as The Punisher. While the second season is only days away from being released, rumors had started to circulate that a Punisher series was already in the works. Marvel Television Executive Vice President, put those rumors to rest but Bernthal is still hopeful that a series could become a reality.
Bernthal spoke with Empire Magazine about his role and the possibility of more screen time.
“We’re the last to know about these things. But this guy is burned into my heart and soul. I think about him all the time. And I look at it the same way Frank would look at it. I’m a soldier, man. If they call on me, I’ll stand to attention, and I’ll be ready.”
The Daredevil star, also opened up about his character and what it was like to take on this role.
“Frank is so filled with rage and despair that this idea of a guy prancing around in a costume with little horns beating up bad guys is absurd to him. It’s ripe for a character like Frank to come in and shit on that. What’s really interesting is that these guys are absolute enemies, but they start to understand each other.”
Daredevil Season 2 will debut on Netflix March 18th. All 13 episodes will be released on that date.
