Photos: Jon Bernthal starts filming Marvel’s The Punisher
Production has begun on Marvel’s The Punisher and we’ve got your first look at Jon Bernthal on the New York set! You can view the photos in the gallery below.
Jon Bernthal is reprising his role from Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 and he’ll be joined by Ben Barnes (Westworld, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) in the upcoming series.
“For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world,” Executive Producer and Showrunner, Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal, Narcos) previously said. “After watching Jon’s performance in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.”
Marvel’s The Punisher is part of an overall deal between Marvel Television and Netflix, which has already released the critically-acclaimed seasons of Marvel’s Daredevil and Marvel’s Jessica Jones, with Marvel’s Luke Cage having just premiered last Friday and Marvel’s Iron Fist coming soon. All the heroes will unite in the mini-series event Marvel’s The Defenders. It’s unclear when The Punisher spin-off series will premiere.
