Jon Bernthal, popularly known as Shane Walsh from The Walking Dead, has been cast for season two of the Netflix original series, Marvel’s Daredevil. Bernthal will take on the role of The Punisher, a vigilante that will stop at nothing to eliminate crime on New York City’s streets.
“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. [Frank] Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same,” Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Head of Television) explains in a statement.
Season two of Daredevil will be streaming on Netflix in 2016.
