Actor Jon Bernthal to Return as THE PUNISHER in DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN Series

Disney and Marvel Studios are really picking up some of the fallen pieces of Netflix's little Marvel universe. First, we had actors Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio return as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Kingpin and become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now, per The Hollywood Reporter, actor Jon Bernthal is returning to reprise his role as Frank Castle/The Punisher in the upcoming Disney+ series DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN.

THR reports:

"Jon Bernthal is returning to his most punishing role. The actor will reprise Frank Castle, aka antihero the Punisher, in Marvel Studios’ Daredevil: Born Again for Disney+, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

"Bernthal joins Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio in the series, which begins shooting in New York this month. In a departure from other Marvel series, which come in at six or nine episodes per season, Born Again is planned as a whopping 18-episode epic. Writers and executive producers Matt Corman and Chris Ord are behind the show, which is expected to bow in the spring of 2024."

No word on how violent this MCU version of The Punisher will be, seeing as how he was very violent in the Netflix universe.

DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN is ramping up for production soon.
