Jon Bernthal will repair the role of Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, in Marvel Studios’ Daredevil: Born Again for Disney+. Bernthal posted a photo of him as The Punisher on Instagram, but did not offer details about his future with the franchise. Bernthal joins Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio in the series, which begins shooting in New York. Written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, the show will debut in Spring 2024.
Bernthal first played The Punisher on Netflix’s version of Daredevil, debuting during 2016’s second season. He went on to headline his own series for Netflix, playing the titular character for two seasons of The Punisher from 2017-19.
Bernthal and his co-stars appeared to be done with Marvel, but Cox was revealed to have a cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home and went on to appear in She-Hulk. Meanwhile, Daredevil co-star D’Onofrio appeared in Hawkeye, and both Cox and D’Onofrio are key figures in the upcoming Echo, which sets the stage for Born Again.
