Daredevil: Born Again is going through a full creative reboot. Could this mean good things for Jon Bernthal’s return as the Punisher in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Fans were already excited when it was announced last year that Jon Bernthal would be returning as Frank Castle AKA The Punisher in the MCU with Daredevil: Born Again. However, it seems the reboot’s new creative direction will be giving Frank Castle an even bigger spotlight, with a new rumor by scooper DanielRPK suggesting the character’s subplot involving hunting down “dirty cops that use his symbol” will be expanded during reshoots.
It seems as though the overhaul for Daredevil: Born Again is mainly focused on bringing the MCU version of the character in line with the Netflix series. It’s already been confirmed Wilson Bethel is returning as Bullseye, so it’s not a shock the showrunners would want to bring back Jon Bernthal for a more substantial role as the Punisher. Here’s to hoping this reboot hits its target!
What to expect from the new Daredevil series
Marvel Studios recently scrapped the entire creative team for Daredevil: Born Again due to internal criticism. The previous incarnation of the show focused mainly on the legal aspects of Matt Murdock, with the hero not suiting up until episode 4. The series is expected to go through a complete creative rework to focus more on action and violence, just like the Netflix version.
Little is known of Daredevil: Born Again, with plot details being kept under wraps. Jon Bernthal’s Punisher, Sandrine Holt, Margarita Levieva, Michael Gandolfini, Nikki M. James, and Michael Gaston are set to appear in the series opposite Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a Kingpin.
