Former Walking Dead star and our favourite breakthrough Jew, Jon Bernthal, will be joining the cast of the Netflix original series, Marvel’s Daredevil.

This season, Bernthal will act as the Punisher, a character who’s aim is to clean up New York’s Hell Kitchen by any means necessary – no matter how dangerous or deadly the force. The character that Bernthal will play is also known as Frank Castle, who is a U.S. war veteran and an expert in martial arts and guerrilla warfare.

Former roles of the Punisher have been portrayed by Dolph Lundgren (1989), Thomas Jane (2004) and Ray Stevenson (2008). We can only hope that Bernthal will exceed these set expectations.

“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 has previously acted as the likes of Brad in Wolf of Wall Street, Grady Tavis in Fury and Shane in Walking Dead – all roles that we contest he took on incredibly.

The first season of Daredevil was released on Netflix this past April. Fans can look forward to the release of next season in 2016.
