The second season of Marvel‘s Daredevil was unparalleled in the MCU when it comes to grit and dark tone, and the reason for this was Jon Bernthal’s menacing portrayal of Frank Castle, a.k.a the Punisher; a man who has nothing to lose and lives for nothing but revenge. While at an NYCC panel, Bernthal answered a fan’s question asking what his favorite scene of the season was. Bernthal couldn’t narrow it down to a single one but chose one that let fans explore the depth of Frank Castle as a character, and then an all-out action scene which showed that the Punisher is a deadly force for anyone who stands in his way.
“The monolog I did in the graveyard in episode 4 really let everyone know what Frank was all about…I think what’s so brilliant about the way that Netflix delivers content is that it allow you to be bold with the storytelling. The stuff in the prison and the prison fight. The stunt team is just incredible. All of them are incredibly ambitious.”
Bernthal will reprise his iconic role in next year’s spin-off series, titled The Punisher, which will see the return of other Daredevil characters such as Karen Page as well.
