This is some casting news I can definitely agree with.
Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal has officially landed a role in the Netflix series Daredevil. Bernthal who has also starred in Wolf Of Wall Street, and Mob City, will appear in the second season of the critically acclaimed series as the vigilante the Punisher. Punisher, also known as military veteran and all around badass Frank Castle, resides in New York as well and is known for his ruthless and sometimes brutal tactics executed to keep the city safe. “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,” Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television says on Marvel's website, adding “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
It has yet to be announced if Bernthal will be a series regular or guest star in the upcoming second season, but based on what we've heard we can assume that a character like the Punisher is guaranteed to have some staying power as a fan favorite character. Bernthal has surely proved his earnest acting abilities, so adding him to the blossoming Marvel world feels like a perfect fit. Daredevil season 1 is currently available to stream via Netflix, and the second season has already been announced to stream sometime in 2016.
