Daredevil: The Punisher Takes Out A Gangster


Just Jared brings us new on-set images of Jon Bernthal’s Punisher taking out a gangster in Netflix’s Daredevil.  Though the character is not wearing his signature skull-emblazoned shirt, the gritty look of anger and vengeance are undoubtedly present.

So far, the storyline for The Punisher within the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unknown.  He could be a new player on the scene, or the character could be someone who’s been operating for years.  It’ll interesting to see a live-incarnation clash for the first time between Daredevil and The Punisher.

Season 2 of Netflix’s Daredevil is being executive produced by Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, replacing previous showrunner Steven S. DeKnight.  Both Petrie and Ramirez also served as writers for the first season.  Confirmed returning cast members are Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, Elden Henson as Franklin “Foggie” Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple.  Jon Bernthal and Elodie Yung join the series as Frank Castle / The Punisher and Elektra Natchios, respectively.  Bullseye is slated to appear, but has not been cast yet.

Daredevil is one of four Marvel/Netflix shows centered around events taking place in Hell’s Kitchen.  The other three will be Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones.  Like the cinematic universe, all four characters from each show will later converge together in a miniseries event called The Defenders — another superhero team akin to The Avengers.

Daredevil Season 2 is set to premiere sometime in 2016.
