What’s next for The Punisher? Recently, Jon Bernthal spoke with Deadline about his upcoming Netflix spin-off series.
Bernthal played Frank Castle, AKA The Punisher, in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil. In April, Netflix announced they’ll be making a new series centered around the vigilante character.
When asked about plans for the upcoming Marvel series, Bernthal said he is “tremendously excited” but doesn’t know much:
I’m tremendously excited about it. I look at it as a real joy and a real responsibility and a real honor to play Frank Castle. I feel like he’s in my bones now and he’s in my heart. I’m ready to keep going with him. As far as what this show’s going to be, and what it’s going to be about, and when it’s going to shoot, and where it’s going to shoot and all that, unfortunately I don’t know anything. It’s kind of part and parcel with the way that Marvel works. Information is definitely on a need to know basis. I am nervous, and I just want to do this character and this world justice.”
