Some New York Comic Con news which appears to have slipped by has just surfaced, the fact Jon Bernthal believes Punisher would beat Batman in a fight.
During the Q&A of his panel, several questions were asked in rapid succession, one of which being: who would win in a fight between Batman and the Punisher? Bernthal simply replied with the following, even before Batman’s whole name was uttered.
Unfortunately he did not elaborate on this answer at all, and without any reasoning on his part, I’d have to disagree with him. Batman’s planning allows him to best nearly any opponent thrown his way regardless of superior strength or physical skills, and as such I believe Batman would win. On top of that, and SPOILERS for The Accountant, Ben Affleck already beat Jon Bernthal in a fight once.
You can watch the video of the Q&A below:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Affleck’s Batman will be next seen in Justice League which hits theaters November 17, 2017. Bernthal’s Punisher will next make an appearance in his own series which will debut sometime next year.
