Rumors have been floating about after a report by The Nerdist that The Punisher, one of my personal favorite anti-heroes, will be the villain in the second season of the fantastic Daredevil TV show.
Jon Bernthal, who you might know from his role as Shane Walsh in AMC’s The Walking Dead, has already been cast to play The Punisher in the second season of Daredevil. According to Nerdist sources The Punisher will be the villain, or at least a real pain in the arse for Daredevil, and it makes sense considering the hugely differing personalities between the two.
Daredevil uses his smarts, and avoids killing anyone where possible, but Frank Castle is more more like a priest and anyone he faces looks a lot holier than before. Elektra and Bullseye have also been confirmed to appear in the next season, so there is looking to be a lot to look forward to.
I really enjoyed the first season, particularly the ending to the second episode with the awesome John Woo-esque fight scene, which you can watch below if you aren’t worried about minor spoilers.
What are your thoughts on the show though? Prefer another maybe? Arrow? Flash? Let us know your favorite TV super hero show in the comments!
