Jon Bernthal to reprise “Punisher” role for “Daredevil: Born Again” – Report
Jon Bernthal is set to return as Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher in Disney‘s upcoming superhero series “Daredevil: Born Again”, according to reports.
NME, citing The Hollywood Reporter, states that several anonymous sources have reportedly confirmed that Bernthal will reprise his role alongside Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdoc/Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk/Kingpin.
However, Marvel and Disney have yet to confirm or deny these reports.
While a firm release date has yet to be announced, “Daredevil: Born Again” is currently scheduled to premiere on Disney+ sometime in 2024. The series will also stray away from its initial release format of six to nine episodes per season in favour of an 18-episode run.
“Daredevil: Born Again” will adapt its story from the 1986 comic book of the same name, albeit with several notable changes. In its original source material, “Daredevil: Born Again” focused primarily on Daredevil’s fight against Kingpin, with the absence of The Punisher.
