Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page is set to return into Frank Castle’s life when the second season of Marvel’s The Punisher series hits Netflix in January.
Despite the hell that she endured in the third season of Daredevil not too long ago, Karen Page will be back alongside Frank, as confirmed by showrunner Steve Lightfoot. During a Collider set visit, Lightfoot confirmed that Karen will have a presence in Frank’s life once again since “that relationship continues to be very important.”
And indeed, Karen Page’s appearance in The Punisher, building off of the bond established in the second season of Daredevil, has helped bring out the humanity in Frank Castle. At the same time, Karen’s investigative and reporter skills proved vital to Frank’s journey in the first season. More than that, she was vital during Lewis’ breakdown towards the end of the first season.
It remains to be seen how integral Karen Page will be in The Punisher this time. In addition, we’ll have to see how much, if at all, she’s been affected by the recent events over on Daredevil and if that will influence her character at all when she’s back alongside Frank. But what do you think of Karen returning to Frank Castle’s world? Given the cancellation of Daredevil, do you hope she sticks around for longer than she did in the first season? And what role do you think she will play in the second season? Let us know your thoughts on this and more in the comments below.
Marvel’s The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Jason R. Moore, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Daniel Webber, Paul Schulze, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, and Deborah Ann Woll.
The second season will air on Netflix in January.
What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click "Next" to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes' (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as "MJ" that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter's motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter's secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she's aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won't be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a "brothers in arms" dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio's Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
"The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There's no one more professional than him."
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
