Cue June 2015, when it was announced that Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) would be taking on the role of Frank Castle, otherwise known as the Punisher. The internet collectively flipped out, and people began to speculate what this could mean for season 2. When asked about the role, Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, had this to say about Bernthal:
“Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences. Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
October 2015 brought the first glimpse of The Punisher with the release of the trailer for season 2, but only enough to tease the fans. It was not until this week where we first got to see a good look of the Punisher, as well as the titular hero of Daredevil. Entertainment Weekly brought sheer delight with the following photos:
But when will the gods of Netflix grace viewers with the glory of Daredevil season 2? Some thought the release date may be in April 2016. It would be fitting to debut a new season a year later, but according to recent reports, season 2 may be earlier than one might think. In the same issue that brought the new photos of season 2, Entertainment Weekly has the show debuting in March of 2016. Comicbook.com has this date has yet to be confirmed by the folks over at Marvel, what we can assume is that in the first few months of 2016, we’ll be binging ourselves on more Hell’s Kitchen adventures.
