One of the main highlights of the second season of Daredevil was, without a doubt, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle aka ‘The Punisher’. Now that the second season is all wrapped up, fans are eagerly waiting to hear what the future holds for the character. There’s been rumors recently of a spin-off series in development but we’ve yet to to get any form of official confirmation regarding that one.
Bernthal is looking forward to the future himself and recently chatted about what it might hold for the character with Collider. The actor is confident that he’ll be back and definitely wants to make the character hard to root for when he does return.
For me, it’s not a question of what they want to do with a character, its more, how are they going to do it, and who’s going to be the ones to do it. This character is in my bones now, he’s in my blood. If they want to go forward in any way, for me it’s just really going to be about making sure we do it in a way that’s raw and intense. I want to push the envelope. I wanna alienate more of the audience and try to bring them back.
It’s currently unclear when we will see the character again, given that Netflix currently only wants two series running per year. Could he make an appearance in The Defenders? Perhaps this could be Marvel’s big opportunity to bring one of their small screen characters up to the big screen? Only time will tell. Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below.
