Talk about awesome -- it was announced today that Jon Bernthal (Shane from The Walking Dead) has signed on to play Frank Castle/The Punisher in season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil.
I've never been a Punisher fan, but Bernthal's a terrific actor, and this is yet another stroke of casting genius on Marvel's part. I think if anyone can make me like this character, it's this guy.
He should play the role well. Also not much of a Punisher fan, especially MAX, but I have enjoyed the last films. Cheesy and violent, almost like an 80's throw back, instead of the ultra-modern style of the more recent Marvel movies. Also I like Jon Bernthal, Shane was the best character of that series, and not just because he was a more complicated character than the rest, but also because Jon was stellar in the role.
I was actually just talking to my buddies about how Netflix should make a Punisher series. Who knows? Might still happen.
