‘Daredevil’ season 2 will focus on Jon Bernthal’s Punisher

According to a new report, season 2 of Daredevil will focus primarily on the conflict between Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle, aka The Punisher.

A source close to The Nerdist says that Daredevil’s new co-showrunner Marco Ramirez is referring to Season 2 as ‘Daredevil vs. the Punisher’, which likely translate to physical conflict and combat as well as a disagreement over “ideology” and approach to battling crime in Hell’s Kitchen.

Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb said that “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”

Daredevil netflix original seriesBernthal has teased fans by posting photos of “reading material” such as a 2010 issue of Punisher MAX in which Frank Castle reflects on his family from solitary confinement during a prison riot as well as 1986’s Punisher: Circle of Blood, which centers on Castle’s assertion that he’s killed Kingpin, instigating full scale street violence.

Screen Crush has posted a summary of these photos, including Bernthal with a 2009 Garth Ennis (Preacher) run Punisher: War Zone – The Resurrection of Ma Gnucci.

Bernthal joins Cox and co-stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and Rosario Dawson as the series transitions to new showrunners, Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who are succeeding Season 1 showrunner Steven S. DeKnight.
