The actor says it's the job of the show to 'ask questions'.
Jon Bernthal will be returning to the role of Frank Castle in 'The Punisher', taking on the character once more for Marvel Television following his hugely successful debut in the second season of 'Daredevil'. Streaming exclusively on Netflix, the show will see Castle uncover an underground criminal organisation that stems much farther than just New York City, and affects more people than he could imagine.
Jon Bernthal stars as Frank Castle, aka The Punisher on Netflix
Whilst he was originally meant to be a villain, Punisher was quickly turned into an anti-hero on the pages of Marvel comic books, and that's the role he's slotted into following his debut on Netflix. Joined by the likes of Jason R. Moore, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman and Amber Rose Revah in the solo series, Bernthal is in incredible company, with 'The Punisher' looking set to be one of the most memorable originals available on Netflix.

The origin story comes after his appearance in 'Daredevil'.
One of Marvel's most brutal anti-heroes, The Punisher, is set to join the Netflix series universe - and it doesn't get more merciless than this. He's not the first comic book character to venture out on a bloodthirsty quest for revenge, but no-one exacts it quite like him.
Jon Bernthal as The Punisher
Jon Bernthal gets his very own Netflix series reprising his role as Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, from 'Daredevil'. Based on the comic books by Gerry Conway and John Romita Sr., and created by Steve Lightfoot ('Hannibal'), this series follows how the character came to be the man he is after losing his family to a ruthless murderer.

The show will be hitting Netflix before the end of the year.
There's a more "human side" of Frank Castle to be explored in the upcoming solo series of 'The Punisher' on Netflix, according to showrunner Steve Lightfoot. Having made his debut in the second season of 'Daredevil', Castle quickly worked his way into the hearts of everybody watching, with actor Jon Bernthal the man to bring him to life. Becoming an instant fan-favourite, it didn't take much persuading for Netflix to commission a solo series.
Jon Bernthal will star as Frank Castle in 'The Punisher'
Though we don't know too much about the plot we'll be delving into with 'The Punisher', there have been hints at an underground conspiracy that goes much further than New York. Having avenged the murder of his wife and children, it will be very interesting to see what Castle is fighting for this time round.
The actor says Frank becoming "more and more human" is just a phase of sorts.
Following the brilliant response to Jon Bernthal's version of Frank Castle, aka The Punisher in the second season of Marvel's Netflix series 'Daredevil', the streaming service came to an agreement with Marvel to bring a solo 'Punisher' series to the platform.

Now confirmed to be debuting before the end of 2017, more information surrounding the series is beginning to trickle out, with a synopsis released this week promising more controversy in New York, and villainous forces that extend beyond the reaches of the American state.
The standalone series is set to debut on Netflix before the end of the year.
Following his hugely successful debut in the second season of 'Daredevil', Frank Castle aka The Punisher got his own standalone series, which will come to Netflix before the year is up. With Jon Bernthal in the titular role, expectations are high, as the Marvel character's world is delved deeper into than ever before.
Jon Bernthal returns to the titular role in 'The Punisher'
This week, more information surrounding the series has been teased by the streaming service, along with a new chunk of text on exactly what fans should expect from the episodes when they make their debut.
After writing the superb Sicario and Hell or High Water, Taylor Sheridan moves back into the director's chair for this thriller, which mixes a real-life issue with a compelling procedural mystery. It's a gorgeously shot film with especially well-developed characters who bring intensity and emotion to every scene. And they're expertly played by Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen.
It's set on the Wind River native American reservation in Wyoming, a spectacular mountain landscape under a blanket of winter snow. An 18-year-old woman (Kelsey Asbille in flashbacks) has been found murdered in the wilderness, and FBI agent Jane (Olsen) has arrived to investigate. With no experience in this kind of situation, she gets help from local Fish & Wildlife officer Cory (Renner) as well as the reservation sheriff Ben (Graham Greene). But Cory is finding this case very difficult, as the victim was the best friend of his daughter, who was killed two years ago. This gives Cory a special desire to solve the case, no matter where it leads.
Without ever getting flashy, the plot grinds along with a variety of revelations that continually add more detail to the case, characters and, most intriguingly, community. Local customs and practices continually add unexpected wrinkles, all of which guides the very specific journeys Cory and Jane are taking through this situation. So in addition to a pointed comment on the situation of native Americans in US society, the film is also a powerfully introspective drama about two people travelling their own paths through this terrain.

The actor will lead his own Netflix series, set to debut later this year.
Aiming for a release this November, Netflix and Marvel have collaborated on a series that was never a part of their initial agreement, after the huge success and fan support that Jon Bernthal gained in his role of Frank Castle aka The Punisher in the second season of 'Daredevil' on the streaming service.
Jon Bernthal returns to Netflix with his solo Marvel series 'The Punisher'
Simply titled 'The Punisher', the series will follow the character's journey closer than ever before, with plot description and details of a story arc for Castle being kept tightly under wraps by all involved.

The actor understands how much the character means to some people watching.
For many Marvel comic book fans, Frank Castle aka The Punisher is one of the most recognisable and deadly characters they've ever been introduced to. With professional training and a tragic past that has turned him into a vicious killer that takes lives without thinking of the consequences, he is at the very best an anti-hero, and at worst another dangerous villain.
Jon Bernthal reprises his role as Frank Castle in 'The Punisher'
Throughout the years, various adaptations of the character have been brought to fans, but have failed to hit the mark for a number of different reasons. With the arrival of the second season of 'Daredevil' on Netflix however came the most faithful and lauded version of Punisher to-date, with Jon Bernthal stepping into the role.

Wildly energetic and so cool it hurts, this action movie has been put together in the style of a colourful movie musical, but with the songs playing in the background. Everything is choreographed to the tunes, as the cars veer across the road dodging bullets fired in sync to the rhythm. It's pure candy for the eyes and ears, impeccably staged by writer-director Edgar Wright. And we don't mind much that there's not much more to it than that.
The title refers to Baby (Ansel Elgort), a young man who doesn't talk much. Hiding behind sunglasses and earbuds, he's an expert driver raised by his deaf foster dad (C.J. Jones) after his parents died in, yes, a car crash. He's also in debt to Doc (Kevin Spacey) a criminal mastermind who orchestrates elaborate heists with a variety of low-life goons, all with Baby at the wheel. And things are looking up for Baby when he falls for diner waitress Debora (Lily James) just as he pays off his debt to Doc. But first he has to do one last job, working this time with the loved-up Buddy and Darling (Jon Hamm and Eliza Gonzalez) and the unpredictable, trigger-happy Bats (Jamie Foxx).
Scenes play to the beat of the songs on Baby's iPod, and Wright adds clever touches everywhere. Shooting in long takes with elaborately planned-out mayhem, the film ricochets from one sequence to the next, looking seriously stylish every step of the way. It quickly becomes clear that even the super-efficient Baby is soon going to be in over his head, which helps us root for him as the carnage escalates. The likeable Elgort has a lot of fun with the role, enjoying Baby's wordless swagger while including a touch of emotion here and there. No one else gets a chance to add much depth to his or her role, but at least Foxx gets to steal his scenes simply because no one has a clue what he might do next.

It is the year 1209 anno domini, and Ireland is merely a green, mountainous mass of land fraught with bloody religious war. An ancient brotherhood of monks are in possession of a potentially dangerous holy relic with the power to summon the wrath of God and unleash it on his enemies. It is their mission to transport this artefact to its rightful home in Rome, but that means crossing the treacherous roads to the East coast where they are always in danger of brutal death at the hands of tribal rivals and Norman invaders. One of those young monks making this perilous pilgrimage is a novice named Brother Diarmuid (Tom Holland) who is aided by a mute lay-brother (Jon Bernthal).
As much as their faith drives them to continue on the journey of their lives, it is that same set of beliefs which could destroy them all in the end - especially with all the dark superstition surrounding their cargo - and even drive a deadly wedge between all of the brothers. For there are secrets about this object that holds more power than any of them could ever possible imagine.
'Pilgrimage' is a gritty historic thriller which also stars 'The Hobbit' actor Richard Armitage as Raymond De Merville. Directed by Brendan Muldowney ('Love Eternal', 'Savage') and written by Jamie Hannigan in his feature film screenplay debut, the movie made its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2017 as part of the event's 'Viewpoints' segment.
