Jon Bernthal, the man behind his star-studded performance as The Punisher in Daredevil Season 2, did an interview with Awards Daily where he clearly says that you haven’t really seen the actual Punisher, yet.
“I think when you’re talking about characters like these, the way they fight, what’s motivating the fight is very important. Beating someone up to drag them into jail is different than someone who is exercising his rage on people. The Frank Castle you find in this story is not The Punisher. He’s reeling from the loss of his family. He’s driven by rage and is on a singular mission to find these people who took his family from him, and do it as brutally as possible.”
So what’s next for Frank Castle?
“I have no idea. We are going to do a show with him next year. I’m really excited about that. We’ll have to see.”
That means The Punisher will appear on Netflix in 2017 after all. By the time The Punisher series comes out, we will come to know him well. Frank Castle is dead. Call him The Punisher!
