Jon Bernthal Speaks Out On Playing The Punisher

Jon Bernthal spoke with Good Morning America about being cast as the Punisher in season two of Netflix’s Daredevil.

“Oh man, it’s just a huge honor to play the part and that’s all I can say about that,” Bernthal told ABC News. “I’m very thrilled and we haven’t started yet, but I’m very much looking forward to it.”

Bernthal rose to fame with his portrayal of Sahne on AMC’s The Walking Dead. He has also appeared in The Wolf of Wall Street and Mob City.

Marvel’s Daredevil is Executive Produced by Doug Petrie (American Horror Story, Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Marco Ramirez (Marvel’s Daredevil, DaVinci’s Demons) and Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods, Lost), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s Jessica Jones.)

“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios. Season one of “Marvel’s Daredevil” is now streaming on Netflix.

Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Marvel’s Daredevil stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and Rosario Dawson.
