As comic book fans will know, The Punisher made his debut in the Marvel world as a villain for the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, but has since become a popular anti-hero. We got the announcements recently that Tom Holland (The Impossible) would be our next Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War and The Walking Dead‘s Jon Berthnal will play The Punisher in the second season of Daredevil.
And now the two have met.
Holland posted the below image to his Instagram account. With Holland currently getting ready to start filming on Captain America: Civil War and Berthnal currently filming Daredevil, could this be a tease of things to come?
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Don Cheadle (James Rhondes/War Machine), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) and William Hurt (General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross) alongside new additions Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as Baron Zemo, Tom Holland (The Impossible) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) in an as-yet-unrevealed role.
