Jon Bernthal (Wolf of Wall Street, Fury, The Walking Dead) is joining season two of Marvel’s Daredevil.
He will play The Punisher, a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.
“Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
Bernthal will also appear in the upcoming action thriller The Accountant.
Season one is now streaming on Netflix with season two due in 2016.
