We recently learned The Walking Dead’s Jon Bernthal was perfectly cast as Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher, and would be appearing in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil. We were enthusiastic, because that seemed like an excellent choice for the role, and an intriguing wrinkle in the world of Matt Murdock. Now, it seems like the people behind Daredevil think so, too: Nerdist reports showrunner Marco Ramirez has begun referring to season two of the series as “Daredevil Vs. The Punisher.” So, instead of just being a guy who shows up a couple of times, shoots a bunch of people, and generally pisses off Daredevil, it looks like we’ll be seeing quite a bit of the brutal antihero. And if the compelling weirdness that was Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin this season is any indication, Frank Castle might just become the best part of the show.
