There’s just three weeks to go until the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil arrives on Netflix and introduces The Punisher to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking to Empire, Jon Bernthal has shared his thoughts on Frank Castle and his relationship with the Man Without Fear.
“Frank is so filled with rage and despair that this idea of a guy prancing around in a costume with little horns beating up bad guys is absurd to him. It’s ripe for a character like Frank to come in and shit on that. What’s really interesting is that these guys are absolute enemies, but they start to understand each other.
Rumous of a potential Punisher series have been downplayed by Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb, but Bernthal has admitted that he’d jump at the chance should the opportunity arise:
“This guy is very much burned into my heart and soul. I think about him all the time. And I look at it the same way Frank would look at it. I’m a soldier, man. If they call on me, I’ll stand to attention and I’ll be ready.”

Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios. Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.
