I really liked Jon Bernthal's portrayal of The Punisher in the last season of Daredevil. The character was slotted into that story well, and really complimented the other heroes. Giving that same character a whole season to run around on his own sounds challenging, but I'm sure Netflix is about to give it a really good go.
Filming for the standalone series has started now too, making the show feel even more imminant. Not too much is known about where it will take Frank or what he is taking on, but what we do know is that for the moment, the character has a beard. You can see some images of Bernthal on set if you scootch over to Just Jared.
There is no release date on this thing yet, and there is some other Netflix seasons to get through first. However, it is nice to know shooting has started and The Punisher is on his way to our screens.
