Big, enormous, gigantic news for all fans of Marvel’s Daredevil. Today a new cast member was announced for upcoming season 2. Jon Bernthal, best known for his role as Shane on The Walking Dead, is set to portray Frank Castle aka The Punisher. One of the most popular characters in the comics, The Punisher uses any means necessary to clean up Hell’s Kitchen. Says Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, of the character, “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”

Season 2 of Daredevil is already looking to be just as successful, or more so, than season 1. There are whispers of a few different villain appearances, including Elektra and Mysterio. While it has recently been rumored that Jason Statham will be cast as Mr. Fear, no official statement has been made.

It is such a long way off until we can once again follow the vigilante adventures in Hell’s Kitchen. But don’t fret! Netflix is debuting another Marvel show, Jessica Jones, sometime this year. It was originally titled AKA Jessica Jones but the show has once more dropped the ‘AKA.’
