Frank Castle’s journey to live action has been spotty at best. Sure the 2004 film staring Thomas Jane wasn’t absolutely terrible and the sorta-sequel-but-not-reboot with Ray Stevenson four years later was fun ultra-violent romp, and neither of those films featured anyone naked in a sewer, fans of the Gerry Conway, John Romita Sr. and, Ross Andru created Marvel character have been waiting to see the war veteran turned crime buster get a more truthful adaption.
Then, in Netflix’s second season of Daredevil last year, the prayers of Punisher fans were answered when The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal debuted in the role. Well, their prayers were sorta answered. While Bernthal brought a lot of what was missing from the violent vigilante from his previous live action appearances, Frank Castle still wasn’t sporting the classic skull emblazoned combat gear…
Well, wait no more, with the character getting his own Netflix series soon (sometime this year,) and not only do we have the trailer which shows off Castle set to ‘collect’ but also a first look at the heavily armed anti-hero finally dressed properly.

With shooting in New York underway for the upcoming Netflix Daredevil spinoff show, little has actually been leaked about the specifics of the Punisher series starring Jon Bernthal. But it looks like a few casting bullets have fallen from the clip.
Joining the returning Bernthal will be Ebon Moss-Bachrach (HBO’s Girls) and Amber Rose Revah (Son of God). In addition, set photos have revealed a well known Daredevil cast member taking five with the Punisher. We’ll get to that in a bit. First, onto the new casting! (more…)
It was kind of a surprise when Marvel Studios decided to use the Punisher in Daredevil season 2, and it was kind of a surprise when they cast Jon Bernthal to play the part of the shoot first/no questions later vigilante Frank Castle. But the success of Daredevil, and the success of Bernthal’s portrayal, gave Marvel an opening: maybe they could finally have a solo Punisher adventure that won’t suck. We don’t when, we don’t know how, but apparently the new Punisher series is currently in production in New York City, if a spy picture of a grizzled Bernthal on the street is to be believed. (more…)
Fans might not have to wait as long as they initially thought for the return of Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) to Netflix. Bernthal was fantastic as the Punisher in season two of Netflix’s Daredevil. That performance directly led to a spinoff series about the troubled vigilante, but no one expected that new series to get done by 2017. Now thanks to a Reddit posting there is a chance that the Punisher series might make it to Netflix sometime in 2017. (more…)
Netflix‘s second season of Daredevil was fantastic in so many ways. Jon Bernthal knocked it so far out of the park when it came to Frank Castle and the Punisher that Marvel and Netflix decided to spinoff the character into his own Netflix Punisher series. Bernthal recently talked about the character and what we might expect to see in the series and had some interesting and poignant things to say about Frank Castle and the Punisher. (more…)
