It was just announced that Jon Bernthal will be the Marvel Universe’s new Punisher. He will debut in the second season of Daredevil.
I loved Thomas Jane as the Punisher. He was incredible and I legitimately was hoping that he’d be cast in the Marvel Universe again as the Punisher. Jane wasn’t as mean and menacing as some fans wanted, but he brought a compassion to the role that I thought could be translated really well to viewers. Also, Jane seemed to have the presence of importance and the same characteristic that defined a sworn vigilante of justice.
With that being said, I think that Jon Bernthal is a great choice as a replacement. If you don’t remember Bernthal, he was Shane on Walking Dead and one of the psychos with Brad Pitt in the movie Fury.
I loved Daredevil and I think his interaction with the Punisher could be incredible in the next season. Both characters have been said to have been raised in Hell’s Kitchen New York City, but both have drastically different ideologies. Seeing them interact could be so cool!
What do you think? Good idea for Jon Berthnal or bad idea?
